Every card needs a little texture and a little bling, don't you think?  We created this card as part of my recent Big Shot class - do you see how we used the Big Shot?  The Texture Plates add a softer texture to the card stock than embossing folders do.  The Soft Suede was textured before we started adding layers.  Quick, easy, and textured!

Stamps: Day of Gratitude
Papers: Soft Suede, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Spice Cake DSP
Inks: Early Espresso, Pool Party
Punch: Decorative Label
Accessories: Retired Texture Plate, Basic Pearls, sponge

Simple Christmas

I do believe I have my holidays out of order...  I will have to post some fall/Thanksgiving ideas soon.  But for now, I can't wait to share one of our favorites from last month's Stamp-A-Stack.  We made four different cards (three of each!), and there was a tie for the favorite.  Here is one contender:

Stamp Sets: Lovely as a Tree, Delightful Decorations
Papers: Letters to Santa DSP, Riding Hood Red CS, Whisper White CS
Inks: Always Artichoke
Punches: Curly Label, Eyelet Border
Accessories: sponges, Dazzling Details
