I’ve been having fun playing with my new Envelope Punch Board.  I made this really quick 3″ x 3″ card with the matching envelope.  The entire thing took me less than 5 minutes.  With 66 different sizes, I love that I can make an envelope to fit practically any size card I want to make and I can coordinate the envelope with the card.  It’s a great way to use some of my stash of terrific Designer Series Papers.  If you haven’t ordered your Envelope Punch Board yet, what are you waiting for?

Fall is in the air

With it getting darker earlier in the evening, and some of the leaves already starting to fall from the trees, it surely feels like fall is in the air.  This super simple fall card could easily be used as a masculine birthday card just by swapping out the greetings.  The piercing around the circle adds just a bit of texture.

Harvest of Blessings

When each new big catalog or seasonal catalog comes out, my sister Peggy and I design 20 different cards using new stamp sets and accessories.  We call the event the Demonstrator Make & Take as it’s only for other demonstrators and it’s a blast.  Everyone leaves with lots of new samples to share with others.  At the event we have an optional swap using new products.  This beautiful card is one of the swaps I received from the event.  Unfortunately, I can’t give credit for the card because there’s no name on the back as to who made it.
