Re-purposed a sheet of gold cardstock that was in a package of hair product that I got at Costco, I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. I used all Stampin' Up! products to complete them, Winter Post and Many Merry Stars stamp sets, gold cording, gold and black embossing powders, and adhesive tape by Sookwang for tag backs.

This tag uses an old gingerbread man stamp that I drag out every holiday because I love him. Colored in Copics, icing trim was highlighted with Dazzling Details sparkly glue and then I added some white Flower Soft flocking. The paper is Nordic Noel? (new in current SU holiday mini catalog), with red baker's twine, and Christmas sentiment from Punches Three. I used the white cardboard that came in the designer paper pack to adhere the paper to so it gives the tag a little more body. I stamped over a dozen of these gingers so I will complete them assembly line style later today.

This is a fairly easy project made easier if you have a hot glue gun. I wound two strands of Christmas candle decorating garland around the finished cone tree and studded it with some pearls and pins. The tree topper is a snowflake rhinestone from last year's Stampin' Up holiday catalog. I stocked up on those beauties, my favorite SU embellishment ever!

These little paper mache ornaments are pretty easy to do with scraps of designer paper, I used three different design papers for each one. Start by tracing out a template in the shape of each section. Vellum usually works well for this task as you can see through it to know where your lines are. I used glue sticks to adhere and some very narrow rick rack trim to go between each segment to add more definition.
The papers used were Authentique for the Halloween and Stampin' Up! Candelight Christmas for the red and green one.

This card is for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge theme of "shine". I used the sunshine stamp from Kinda Eclectic with the sentiment from Blooming With Kindness. Paper is non SU, maker unknown, cardstocks are Pink Pirouette, Saffron, and Whisper White.
Rocket is my kind of dog, he doesn't mind making the best of a creative messy space as you can see. The mister bottle makes a great pillow and as long as he is curled up at my feet, he is happy.
These cards are for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive for the MT Anderson Cancer Center, organized by Splitcoast. You can find all of the challenge details on their site.
The first card is for the paper tole challenge. All supplies are Stampin' Up!

The flower was cut out and layered. The layout is from the Vive la Verve sketch challenge for September.
The second challenge was to use a handle of some kind so I used my Tea Shoppe set for the first time. Embossed the cup on Blackberry Bliss with white powder and colored flowers with markers. Hardwood stamp for "table", Whisper White with Lovely Lace embossing folder for wallpaper, Blackberry Bliss ink, ribbon, and cardstock.

It would be awesome if every ingredient that I wanted to use to create what is in my head was available at the same time from Stampin' Up!, but that never seems to be the case. I loved the old SU copper embossing powder and cording, it is so lovely for autumn. I embossed the Seasonally Scattered thanks on the Wood Grain background (top border punch is Martha Stewart), and used the Fall Fest pumpkins and Fall Fun dies in Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Tangerine Tango. Very Vanilla base.
