I have been playing around with the side step cards and they have quickly become one of my favorite type of cards! I recently saw a card on SCS Gallery using Stampin Up's Christmas Lodge Stamps. I happen to have them on my MDS2 so I wanted to give it a try. I not sure of the person's name who made the card on SCS, as when I went back I could not find the post so unable to give you credit for the idea. I gave it a try and here is what I came up with, it is really pretty and sparkly! All of the stamps were done digital with MDS2 I just love digital scrapbooking and cards. This software is just so much fun!!

Hope you have all seen the new Christmas releases at Flourishes, they are just beautiful!!! The Flourishes Dear Santa Noon Time Challenge was to create a card that was fun for kids and kids at heart. This was such a fun challenge as I have 4 grandchildren and just love making cards for them. I chose to use a retired stamp from Stampin Up for the Santa and decided to create a snow globe. I used the Christmas Classic stamp set from Flourishes for the sentiment. Using prima pencil to color the Santa, and the cuttlebug snowflake folder to emboss. Hope you all are having a good week. The weather here in Southeast Texas has been really nice for this time of year, so I am enjoying being outside after such a long hot summer :). Enjoy the rest of the week and Keep Stamping!!

Just loved all the new Christmas Stamps being released the week over at Flourishes. They are just beautiful, can't wait to see the remaining ones later in the week. They are having an Any Which Way Challenge using this sketch. I really like using a sketch most of the work is already done for you :). I used Stamping Up's Day of Gratitude stamps and their Autum Spice DSP. Punched a few leaves, alittle glitter, ribbon and all finished. Be sure to check out all the new Christmas Stamps at Flourishes!

Today challenge at DDCC was to create a card using this sketch. Since I have been working on Halloween I create a Halloween card using this sketch. I just love a challenge with a sketch. I used the Recollections Halloween Paper, Recollections Haunted House Stamp Set, alittle Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds on the Ghost.
I have been busying working on Halloween cards the past few weeks and have just been having so much fun with them!! The side step card has become one of my favorite cards, you can find the template at SCS. I used the Recollections Haunted House Stamp Set, Recollections Halloween Paper Stack and the Martha Stewart Fence Punch to make this cute card. To create the moon I used a 1.25 inch circle punch for a mask, then inked around it with orange and yellow ink.
