And the Inspiration Continues!

I found two more BEAUTIFUL designs on the Stampin' Up! website. One is similar to one already posted here - but using different colors, can you find it's fraternal twin? The other is a lovely use of the Holiday Thyme Double Sided Designer Paper (only available until 11/30!!)gold heat-embossing and the Snowflakes Stamp Set. ENJOY!

Thanksgiving Blessings

With Thanksgiving just around the corner - why not take some time to reflect on the many blessings God has bestowed on you an your family? There is no better way to express your thankfulness than through a handwritten note! And you can double the pleasure for the recipient by making it a hand-stamped note. The Autumn Elegance Kit (as shown in Country Living Magazine November issue) is perfect for this as it contains enough supplies to make 8 hand-stamped notes to express your thankfulness. Here are a couple of other ideas using Autumn Leaf Prints, Thoroughly Thankful and Country Blessings (from the Autumn Elegance Kit).

Loads of Pumpkins

Isn't this Fall weather wonderful? This is the first September in a loooong time that I can remember being actual Fall weather - and I am loving it! A friend and I were mounting her Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories sets - and of course I had to stamp at least one card right away. I forgot to scan her card - for shame, I know! ;) Here's my quickie design using Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie card stock and Classic ink and Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter, Crimper & Gold Brads. All images shown here, and on this blog are registered, trademarked & copyrighted to Stampin' Up!.
