Card Set: Endless Wishes


These are the cards I made for the Cards in the Mail swaps for Nov/Dec. I started with the first one and for some reason decided to make the 2nd one to match. Then I thought I might as well make all three of them go together. I figured it would be fun for the people that are in both swap groups to have some matching cards. I think I'll attempt to stick with this trend if I can.

Watch for them again when I post the rest of the cards from the swaps later this month.

SUPPLY LIST: (for all)
  • Stamp Sets: Endless Wishes
  • Colors: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Real Red
  • DSP: Flowerpot Designer Series Paper
  • Big Shot: Banners, Bitty Banners, Chalk Talk, Windows Collection Framelits TM
  • Embellishments: Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Baker's Twine, Basic Rhinestones

Swap: Cards in the Mail for Customers







Welcome to the 4th round (Sept/Oct) for the customer card swap. I have been so impressed with the commitment of this group. Great cards on time! Almost. It was very close. The late posting is all my fault. 


This group is run the same way as the demonstrator friends group with one exception. They are allowed to use retired items. Ask me how you can join a small group (eight or less). 

If you would like to see the other cards for this swap group, visit my Cards in the Mail Swap group for Customers board on Pinterest or search "Swaps" here on my blog.

Please Pin away! I've set up everyone's cards with their names so that they get proper credit.
Featured Stamp Sets: By request only.

Any other questions, just ask and I'll do my best to help you out.

Blog Hop: 'Tis the Season... to be Thankful

Welcome back yet again! This month we're sharing some more projects related to the upcoming holidays and I chose to focus on Thanksgiving and Fall.

This first card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Blog. I colored the tree with the Aquapainter TM and some inks to match the card and it turned out really great. The tree pops off the card so be sure to click on the image to enlarge it so you can see it up close. The acorn was colored in with the Stampin' Write TM markers.

Challenge: Freshly Made Sketch 160. A Funky Sketch by Rita. FMS160

This simple card box was inspired by a project we made at Inspire, Create, Share 2014 and The Friday Mashup. I kept the colors and stamps to match the previous project since I like to make things match. I didn't make the cards for the box but maybe I'll add them later.

Challenge: The Friday Mashup 184. A Box Project and/or a Thankful Theme. FM184
*The link may have issues but I will check back later to make sure it works.
