Homespun Christmas Tree!

Here's a card we will be making at an upcoming hostess' stamp camp along with Boho Frosty from the previous post! We will be making 4 cute cards at Robin Engelage's stamp camp in Coulterville on November 29th! This card I CASED off the Stampin' Up!Gedc0074 website. It's so great to be able to look up card ideas by the stamp set I want to use! We are using the Christmas Tree from the Year After Year Stamp set, along with both the Linen and Flannel Plaid backgrounds. Adding a little red gingham ribbon and faux stitching with the white gel pen finish it off nicely!


Boho Frosty!

Gedc0075 November here in Southern Illinois has been awesome! The trees in Jefferson and Franklin Counties are just as beautiful as they were in October, although it's different trees. The maples are all gone, but the oaks are a beautiful orange and burgundy I've never seen before. They are like that everywhere, whether you go to Benton, Mt Vernon, or Bonnie!
I CASED this Boho Frosty Card from my downline, Linda. She may have CASED it from somewhere else, but I have no idea where! Anyway, I had fun stamping this card with the Frosty set, Outlaw Designer paper (yes, that's Outlaw paper under the Blue Bayou Canvas stamped over it!) and blender pens with Ruby Red and Blue Bayou ink! Rhinestone Circle brad added just the right touch of bling!
