Cards - Halloween & Fall

Wedding Card With Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Wedding bells are ringing in our family - time to make a card! 

I have been hanging onto this beautiful laser-cut specialty paper!  It's soooo pretty!  But, I decided, I need to use it.  It is Petal Pink on one side and White on the other.  Delicate and so appropriate for a beautiful wedding card.  There are 8 sheets, 4 each of 2 designs, and it's retiring!  It is guaranteed available until June 3rd.  Grab it while you can!

I also used two stamp sets for this card - the lovely Butterfly Gala stamp set and Butterfly Duet Punch, and the Stitched All Around stamp set for the sentiment on the front, and accompanying Stitched Labels Dies.

Tea Together Mother's Day Card

Whew! Can't believe Mother's Day is next week!  I've been working on cards, and thought I'd share this one.  I used the tea cup from the Tea Together stamp set, Gingham Gala DSP, and the Daisy Punch to create the sweet flower.

Fall Is In the Air!

Country Homepm

The days are growing shorter, and the leaves are starting to turn!  I'm ready for cooler weather, and the orange clad hills.  This card, created with the new Stampin' Up stamp set, "Country Home" and Tin Tile embossing folder suggests cozy time in the kitchen or by the fire. 

The gray cardstock was embossed with the Tin Tile embossing folder, and then I lightly sponged on Blackberry Bliss ink with a sponge dauber.
