Fall Is Here And Class Is In Session

Fall is definitely here, here in West Virginia. Today's high was in the 50's and very gloomy...more like an early winter type of day. So that means classes are in session. I've scheduled my very first Christmas Card Stamp-a-stack and am busy getting all arranged for those. If you're in the area and would like to sign up for those classes, check out my SU page, or click on the icon to the right to read about the classes. I still have room and since the classes aren't till November, you have a little tickle room for time. I'd LOVE to have you!

My Scrapbook Club asked for a change in our venue so here's a card we're going to do (if all goes well) at our club meeting next week. (I'm not sure they read my blog so I'm not giving anything away...I don't think.) We've changed the format just this once - one page and two cards. This is one of the cards. I absolutely LOVE this chocolate satin ribbon! Who would have thought how luscious it looks against the deep Rich Razzleberry?!! Gorgeous! I used Rich Razzleberry for the base card, Whisper White for the sentiment and Old Olive for the scalloped border. Believe it - the leaves are cut from the Bright Blessings jumbo roller!! The original card that I CASE'd called for another stamp set that I didn't have (“Falling Leaves”) so I improvised using the Bright Blessings jumbo roller, a companion to the Falling Leaves stamp set. I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Dusty Durango markers for coloring the leaves, held on to the two posts on the roller and then rolled the inked portion onto Whisper White paper. I cut the leaves out and used Stampin' Dimensionals to layer the leaf images to Old Olive and Dusty Durango card stock! Woo! Yum! The Chocolate Chip satin ribbon is simply double knotted around the front, the ends cut in an inverse “v”; the “Give Thanks” is from “Holiday Best” and is stamped in Chocolate Chip and Old Olive on Whisper White card stock; and the scalloped edge is done in Old Olive.

Remember the Hostess Special from now till November. Host a $250 workshop and choose any item (with the exception of “My Digital Studio” and the hostess-only items) for $10! That’s a monumental savings!!! Click on the shopping icon to your right and head over to my SU Webpage and check out the Holiday Mini items. Then click or email me your order!

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Now I know where you got the leaves! You're amazing with those little added embellishments.

  2. I see you had to have some of that Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon too! You are right, it looks wonderful with the Rich Razzleberry. I'll have to try that on a scrapbook page. Great job.

  3. Lovely! That ribbon is fabulous, I just couldn't resist buying some too.

  4. What a beautiful card. The satin ribbon definitely adds to it, but the color combination and the detail of cutting out the leaves adds the wow factor.
