 This would be gorgeous in a navy cardstock and silver foil paper....I used retired muse paper and white paper to pop the card...simple card but love it....
 think I used one of the owls eyes for the middle of the snowflake...or gem would work....

Petite petals class card

I have used this design before but when I saw it again at convention...I had to use it again...used dazzling details and in some cases replaced that with pearls....now this one is a GREAT picture...
 perfect plum is used in sponging and with embossing folder (beautifully baroque)
 instead of dazzling details...pearls...more elegant...used the vine from World of Dreams (my FAVORITE SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
 more close ups....depending how it was stamped...

Nuts about You hostess set....case

this was done by the creator with an ecutter...we did by hand...I will wait a couple of years to see if SU comes up with one , then I will buy one.....lol
 added dazzling details on the bird and made the dots on branches with rhinestones...

or added  dazzling diamonds on hand punched circles on the branches..the varied bark was added by removed ink from the tree trunk with a blender pen (old one...depleted of moisture)

One of my swaps for my WOW group...(Bloom with Hope hostess set)

Was happy to be in the alumni group in this swap...it is the third year I have done it...the hostess set (Bloom with Hope) I knew I was getting as soon as I saw the catalog...used black and white ..always a favorite of mine...and cut out two layers (used our new memento ink) before adding the crystal effects ...to give the card some depth/texture....unfortunately, when I was tired, I cut out all the pieces and ended up making the center bigger for the swap (wasn't going to recut 61 of the black)...this is my original card...do love it...
 the inside...

A case of Wintertime and Christmas Cheer (and Wondrous Wreath)

Sorry for the delay in blogging, but after I was finished with the church sale (a month and a half of hard work for a great team....it was a one day sale and we made 14,000.....YEAH TEAM!!), I had dentists and doctors appointments and just needed ME time...lol...hopefully, back on track...lol
This is a case...and it took me awhile to get it right to say the least...I AM SUCH A TECHIE>>>lol This is the first Christmas Series...will show the other card tomo....I changed a couple things up..used the red dazzling tube....looks greater in person.....Have a friend, Cindy Schuster, who is going to show me how to take better pictures...and I am sure you will appreciate that...lol....I used both of the sets....get use to the STAMP A MA JIG...it will save you endless hours.....used Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler...
 on the inside...used our new Filigree embossing folder (pg 15 of the holiday mini...if you need one, just let me know...I now need a second and third job...lol).....used the phrase from Wondrous Wreath...
Here is how I did the corners...and some tips...glue your card base with removable glue to paper while you do this so it doesn't move.....steadiness is very important....ink just the top half of the stamp and stamp on the SAMJ sheet....you will only ink the stamp this much each of the two times for the placement on the paper...
because you have stamped in the corner of the SAMJ sheet, you will want to turn your paper diagonally...so it can be in the corners....
Place the sheet on top of the glued down paper and get the correct placement..
remove the plastic sheet and stamp...being careful not to move the black thingamajiggie
if you get this below, you moved something or it was lined up incorrectly...
you should get it so the teardrop is right in the corner......hope this helps...Have a great day!!
