Stamped it in Soft Sky classic ink. Mounted the patterned paper on Soft Sky as well. Had some photo corner punched out from Cindy and used brads to keep them together. The brad idea was from my SU demo Sarah. The ribbon is from my lss. I decided not to put a sentiment on this card yet, as I am not sure yet who or what I will use it for.

Well, on my own and in my own place that is. Yes I have been living on my own for a while now, but this is the first year that I put up a tree. It is artificial. And I love it. Also, the new tree skirt includes my favourite thing- paisley!! :0 )

I used 2 Stampin Up punches, Snow blossom for the star of my tree which I made from the Paper Piecing (retired) punch.
The ornament stamps are from Stampendous and free hand cut. Cardstock is Wild Wasabi and Whisper White from SU, and Bazzill brown of some sort.
Patterned Paper is Basic Grey- Blitzen (I think, off the top of my head).
Direct to paper ink- Van Dyke Brown ink pad. Used stickles for the star to sparkle atop my tree.

These were my entries into her contest. I made them with my friend Cindy a few weeks ago in the midst of my car breaking down crisis. At least we were able to get some cards made in the middle of my car being in the repair shop. I used her SU Baroque Motifs stamp set. It actually is such a nice and versatile set. I mean hello- Christmas cards too!! Hmm, maybe I do need it before the new catalog comes out in January to tempt me.
Supplies- SU cardstock- Real Red, Handsome Hunter, Very Vanilla
SU- Ink- Handsome Hunter, Very vanilla- which I then embossed in gold as it didn't stand out as much as I had hoped it would.
Other- SU Brads
Stamps- SU- Baroque Motifs and All Year Cheer I (retired)
My 2nd entry. During the making of my first card I decided that the flowers definitely look like snowflakes as well, and so this card just totally came together.
SU- Ink and Cardstock- Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla
SU- Stamps- Baroque Motifs, Warm Words
Other- Ribbon- SU retired. Brads- SU, glitter- stickles, Paper piercer, Circle punch 1 1/4,

This is all the stuff I had to take with me in my car to my friend's house in order to make that set of cards. he he! Gotta love the home front scrappin' and card makin' space. It requires so much less effort. At the end of the 2 day event- cuz I spent the night and we made cards the next day. My friend said- "you really need a tote on wheels!" Umm. I am not sure that it would help that much. But thanks for the advice, I will keep it under advisement. :) Hope that your Canadian Thanksgiving weekend was spectacular, and I hope that your world card making day was a success

Dreamed up this card the other afternoon, literally during my before night shift nap. It was different colors, but the strips, ribbon, corners rounded on one side, and the layers were all there.
