Mona Maybe??

My newest Spellbinders Nestabilities Die is this one - Labels Four.  I love the wonderful, lyrical curves.  It works so perfectly with this very old rubber stamp I found in my stash.  I pared this image in chocolate with some dark brown Bazzill cardstock to make these sweet tags. I called them "Mona Lisa Maybe" and put them up for sale on my Etsy Shop.  What fun.  I think I'll make lots of tags with this great die.

Thanks for checking in with me.

Stamp: Illuminata by Inkadinkado

Paper: Bazzill Chocolate Cream Smoothies, Twig

Simply Black and White, ah, with a little silver

Sometimes I just want to create a card quickly with out laboring over it and get it in the mail.  This was one of those times.  I needed a "Get Well Soon" card for a very elegant friend, but I knew she wouldn't appreciate anything too girly or too fussy, so I let this beautiful scrapbook paper speak for itself.  A bit of ribbon and a few computer generated words were all I needed to make it complete.

Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, black and silver from stash
Ribbon: Black grosgrain from Michaels
Size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

Christmas Card with Lots of Purple

Summer is gone and Fall didn't last very long, so I guess it's time to think Winter. And to me winter means Christmas.
So I made my first Christmas card today with Kazan's Sketch # 37 from 2sketches4you. They have a contest going on until midnight on October 17th. This is the first time I've entered a contest with a card. How fun! Hope someone likes it.

The inside is decorated also with a bit of the color scheme from the front and a little sign that says "Think Snow!"

The papers are "Artic Chill" by Fancy Pants Designs, and Bazill cardstock in a deep purple. Also used Cuttlebug die Ice Crystal, and Snow flake embossing Folder; Spellbinders Classic Rectangle Large, Classic Circle Large, and Classic Scalloped Circle Large.

Computer generated "Think Snow!"
