Designer Series Paper

I love all the gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Holiday Catalog!  Here are a few cards I made or received in swaps that showcase some of this beautiful paper.
This uses the Country Lane DSP. A perfect
match for the Country Home stamp set.

Some more Country Lane - sometimes you just
need a little strip.

More Country Lane - I love it with
the Tile embossing folder.

This is also from the Country Lane DSP.
Quite a different look than the earlier florals.
I love how Stampin' Up pairs a colorful
design with a more muted design on the back.

I received this in a swap from Heather
Robinson.  This is the Santa's Workshop
DSP - some of the designs are flocked!

I also received this in a swap. This
gorgeous paper is from the All is
Bright DSP. Love the realistic patterns.

I made this card for a swap. It
uses a little bit of the Toil & Trouble
DSP.  I stamped these bats, but there
is a design in this paper with bats that
you can also punch out.

Another swap card, this is from Kitty Seyffer.
It uses the beautiful Festive Farmhouse DSP. 
I love all the plaids!

And don't forget - you can get the Dashing Along DSP free with a $250 order/party.  Only a few more days left of this promotion.  Here are a few cards from Stampin' Up using this fun paper:

Halloween Treats

We had so much fun at our Halloween Treats class last night!  All of our projects used the new Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper. Here's the cute treat containers we made:

I found this cute container online from the
Paper Pixie. The cat is from the Cauldron
Bubble set. There are matching framelits
which makes it easy to cut out that 
adorable cat.

The framelits also cut out this cauldron
from the Designer Series Paper. There is a matching
stamp, so you can color your own cauldron if you
prefer.  Add a couple of strips of cardstock, a gold
library clip and a little ribbon and you have a fun
treat container.

This is the new Takeout Treats die. The bats
are from the Spooky Sweets stamp set and
there is a punch that matches. An easy way to
add some spooky bats to your projects!

Here are a few more Takeout Treat containers that my friend Virginia designed for a retreat that I went to this last weekend.
A cute Thanksgiving treat box waiting
to hold some Tootsie Rolls

I love how Virginia turned this one
upside down for a different look.

Yum!  That sentiment comes from the 
Takeout Treats stamp set that goes with the 
framelit set.

If you need a cute container to give a special someone some treats, this Takeout Treats bundle is just what you need.

Falling for Leaves

I've had so much fun playing with my Falling for Leaves bundle. Here are a few cards I've made or received in swaps.
I love all the copper products we have. This
card uses copper embossing powder, copper
foil paper and copper shimmer paint!

My friend Virginia made this gorgeous card. I love
our team swaps - I always come home from with so
many lovely cards!

We made this card in my Holiday Kick-off
class. We used an aqua painter and ink pads
to color the big leaf. Add a couple of punched
leaves behind it and it's a great focal point.

My friend Kay made this card. All 
those beautiful die cuts leaves are a part of this bundle.
Another gorgeous card I received in a swap!

I sent this to everyone who came to my Holiday Kick-off
as a thank you card.  You can't tell from the picture, but
there's lots of sparkle.  I put some of the copper shimmer 
paint in a spritzer with some rubbing alcohol. I spritzed the
tiled background and the big yellow leaf.  I also took a sponge
and sponged some copper shimmer paint around the smaller
Cajun Craze leaves. I've ordered all the other colors of
shimmer paint so I'm sure you'll be seeing lots more of it!
