A cup of Cheer

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing another card from my last Card Buffet! I just love coffee and hot chocolate and all things like it, so when I saw the Coffee Cafe set in the new Annual Catalog, it was one of the first things I ordered.  Then when I saw the companion set, Mery Cafe, in the Holiday Catalog, I was in love again.  The Merry Cafe set is only available for a limited time, so you need to act fast to get this one. The Holiday catalog ends December 31st, but the retiring stamps are 'while supplies last'.   The Coffee Cafe and matching Coffee cups dies are in the annual catalog, so they will be around until May.   Save 10% if you buy the Coffee Cafe and Coffee Cup dies as a bundle.
Here is a short video on how to put the card together.

And check out these other fun images from the catalog!

Sending Hugs

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing a card from my last Card Buffet.   I saw one similar on Pinterest by an other demonstrator named Connie Collins.  Do you find that when you pin things they tend to be from the same people over and over? I do, and I seem to like a lot from Connie Collins.  Here is a link to her card, so pretty.  She put a lot more effort into hers with that background! So pretty. http://www.constantlystamping.com/constantly_stamping/2017/09/gdp103.html
I think this card is  a good one to have in your card stash because it can be used as a sympathy card or for someone who is having a hard time at work or personally, any variety of reasons really.

I love the Wood Textures paper stack and feel it is a staple in my paper patterns. I have purchased a lot of this paper!  The leaf is also part of a die set that is a crafters essential, Seasonal Layers.  Check out the supply list at the bottom of this post to see these products!
Here is a quick video to show you how the die works and putting the card together. I hope you like it!

Santa's Sleigh

Hi everyone!
Today I want to share a card that we made at my Card Buffet.  It uses one of my favorite Christmas sets, Santa's Sleigh.  I think one of the things I like best about this set is the dies. I have used them so many times, mostly without the stamps!!  I love the large tree and that deer!















I have made a card very similar to this one in the past but the stamp set that I used with it has since been discontinued, so I thought I would redo it and add that pretty foil snowflake.
Here is the card from last year...
And another way to use the tree...

 And some more samples from the catalog...


I just love this stamp and die set.  I hope you do too.  Here is the supply list for my card.

I made another card with the same layout and papers a few months back using the Seasonal Bells stamp set.  Here is that card.
