Happy Birthday Mom! (and a sneak peek)

First off, I want to start by saying Happy Birthday to my mom!  She has truly been an inspiration to me and has supported me in everything I've ever done.  She doesn't live here in Vancouver, but her and my dad will be here in just 2 weeks.  Her gift is here as getting it to her was proving to be difficult... so, she'll have to survive 2 weeks with just a peek:)  I love you mom!

Using Up the Leftovers!

I keep a little basket on my desk full of pieces from die cuts, or embossed paper that I haven't used up.  Sometimes I challenge myself to make a card using only the bits and pieces from that basket.  Today's card was one of those.  I just added the Basic Pearls and the button... everything else was already in the basket:)

Final Stamp-a-Stack of the Season!

This adorable card was cased from a member of my downline, Sabriena Satchwell.  She found it on Splitcoast, and if I get the creator I'll definitely add it in for you:)  Debbie Currier.  I wish that I could show it to you in person as the photo doesn't do it justice.  I've sprayed it with a mixture of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and Rubbing Alcohol, and it has a stunning glitter over the entire card.  This is one of the adorable cards in my final Stamp-a-Stack of the year.  Don't miss out!

Christmas Stamp-a-Stack
December 9th 
$20 for 15 cards

Questions Answered

 I've had a couple of people email regarding the technique used on the card in the last photo of this post.  I wanted to provide you with some photos of the steps just to clarify:)

You'll notice that in the first photo, the platform is completely closed with no tabs opened.

In the second post you can see that I put down my chipboard frame that I made from the Stampin' Up chipboard.  I made this by tracing out the center from the Scallop Oval die and cutting it out using my craft knife.

The next photo shows the embossing folder with the paper in it being laid label side down on top of the chipboard mat which is centered below it.  

Finally, ONLY ONE of the cutting pads is placed over top of the sandwich.  It will feel loose as you crank it through, but believe me, it works!
