Valentine With Christmas Colors

Need some fresh ideas for Christmas and Valentines?  This card could go either way.  Sometimes I get so sick of Valentine cards and Christmas cards that only use traditional colors, so I switched it up a bit.  And the stamp set used here is a wedding set!  So now that we've combined 3 occasions, I kind of like it.  :-)   The background is Teahouse with River Rock ink on River Rock cardstock.  I really like the subtle pattern that this creates.  And have I mentioned lately how much I love our adhesive pearls and rhinestones??  Love 'em!

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.

Have a blessed Christmas,

Quick CAS Card

I love black and white with a splash of color.  I made this card with leftovers from a workshop.  2-Step stamping and a bit of ribbon and sponging complete the card. 

Ok, back to my long, long, LONG list of things that need to get done....

A Fun Fold

 There's a story behind this one!  Last year at convention, a friend of mine came back to the hotel room with a gorgeous folded tree swap.  Of COURSE I had to figure out the fold.  And this is my version of that tree fold.  What I love is that it looks 3-D but folds flat for mailing.  Double-bonus!  I really do like the way this tree shows off the beautiful Deck the Halls DSP.  I thought it looked a bit like quilting, so added the faux stitching. 
But then my brain got to whirling....what ELSE could I do with that fold?  Hmmmm.....and what would it look like if you layered them in a different way?  And could I make a snowflake out of it?  Eureka!
And so that's what I did!  I used some retired DSP, just in case it didn't turn out so great...and used two different designs of DSP...I kind of like it!  I was going to put a snowflake or flower in the middle, but that was too busy, so I finished it off with a glitter brad.  (Have I mentioned how much I love those things and how gorgeous they are?!?!) 
Now the challenge is to come up with more ideas using this fold.  Can you help me out with that?  I'd love to hear your ideas.
So, thanks for stopping by once again at the Stamping Station.
Blessings to you,
