Simple Embossed Cards

Black and White....White on White .....both sophisticated!  I love that it can look elegant or it could be bold.  Its a never fail combination.  Which is why people use it for Wedding cards, Graduation cards, Sympathy cards, Birthday cards.  So at our ladies group night we made a set of Black and White and White on White everyday cards.
The die used was from Fun Stampers Journey. It was called Spring Bloom Minis.  I am not sure where the embossing folder came from.  I am sure you could use any flower folder and any flower die or punch and create this same look.

This is how they turned out and of course I wanted to bling them up a bit more when I got home so added some bling to the white one.  These are great to keep in your stash for that emergency need of a card.  Just add a sentiment of choice, sign and mail.  Great for Birthday, sympathy, Get Well, Miss get the idea.

Star Ornaments and Squash books for Christmas

Well I sit here in frustration.  I just typed this entire post...hit a button and BOOM GONE!  So I need to start over.  Don't you just hate when that happens?

So today I'm going to try and share the Star ornaments and Squash Books that I made while I was up north closing my summer place for the winter season.
The Star ornaments are so quick and easy.  I've posted them before and you can see them here  I think it's in the middle of that post.  Anyway I made a few more and I'm going to be using them as gift tags.  Then the recipient can open it up and place it on the tree.

Stars on on the left and the 2 Halloween ones on the right are Squash cards.
Here are the Stars opened.  I forgot to take a picture of the backs but I stamped a To & From on the backs so that they could be used as tags.

Sorry....I was at the cabin when I took the pictures and had nowhere other than the picture frame to hang them from.
My sister requested a few of these so I'll be busy whipping out a few more.  I think it's a great idea for tags.

Now the Squash books.....directions for these are all over the Internet.  They are all basically made the same way.  If you want directions just let me know.  These I did for Halloween as cards for the grandkids and grand nieces and nephews.  Super cute and the 7-10 yr olds really liked just looking at all the do-dads.

Here's some that are going to be for Christmas but I haven't done the insides yet.

Well that's it for today.  But of course I'll be back.  Til then..........................
