A New Look and a New Card

So do you like my new look? Fall is my favorite season, so I decided I needed to change my blog to match the season. So I now have a fall blog and I am posting Christmas cards.
These are two more cards I made for my open house. I intended to post sooner, but I keep having internet problems. Only the cable company tells me my internet is fine - it's slower than dial up right now, and that is when it is working.
Anyway, enough of my problems. I really like these cards but the colors in the picture are off. These cards was actually made with Mellow Moss card stock and it looks more like Kraft or Sahara Sand in the picture. The card also has a lot of sparkle on it. I added dazzling diamonds to the snow and the new shimmer paint from the Holiday Mini on the star, so it looks very festive in real life. (Click on it to enlarge it and get a better picture) It also uses the new ribbon from the Holiday Mini. I told you in the previous post that I tried to use new product on all the cards that I made for the Open House.
Thanks for looking,

Sweet Centers

For my Open House, I tried to make at least one sample for each of the new items I had purchased whether it was a stamp set, ribbon, shimmer paints, punches, etc.

And one of the new sets I had purchased was the Sweet Centers stamp set along with the matching Sweet Treat Cups. So here is one of my samples using these two products. This card also uses one of the new In-colors - Melon Mambo - I used the cardstock and matching ribbon.

I also used the new stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes and the modern label punch. Lots of new product in one small card.

And in case you can't tell, I filled the treat cup with little barretts that I got at the dollar store. There are a lot of things you can fill the treat cups with, just start looking around and you will get a ton of ideas.

Open House Cards

Here are the two cards that we made at my open house on September 3rd. The Get Well card is a case of a design that I have seen all over the place so I have no idea who to credit for it. The colors I used for the card are Soft Suede and More Mustard although in the picture it looks more like Chocolate Chip. I used the new SU embossing folder Elegant Bouquet and colored it with my very neglected SU chalks.

On the Halloween card I used the new set from the Holiday Mini - Pumpkin Patch - and I used the new
1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon Pumpkin Pie which is really nice.
I thought it would be hard to tie since it is such a wide ribbon but it wasn't hard at all, it's a really soft ribbon.
Thanks for looking,

A Fun Evening

I just finished cleaning up from my Stampin' Up Open house. It was a lot of fun and I actually got to do a little bit of visiting.

I made quite a few cards over the last week or so. I was trying to come up with samples using a lot of the new things I had bought from the new catalog and the Holiday Mini, so I will be posting those projects over the next few days.

It's late and I'm off to bed to read for a little while, see you tomorrow.
