Painted Harvest
I received this beautiful card from my friend and lovely assistant, Michelle Wallace, and just had to share with you.  I think she did a fantastic job designing, and I appreciate her thinking of me.  
Painted Harvest is one of the stamp sets in the 2017 Holiday Mini from Stampin' Up! that is going to be carried over to the 2018 Occasions Mini, as well as the Leaf Punch.  So you just might see this one at one of my January 9, January 11, and January 13, 2018 Creative Therapy card classes.

Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Old Olive, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Crushed Curry layer is 5 1/4 x 4 1/4.
  • The Chocolate Chip layer is 5 x 3 3/4, and dry embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder.
  • The leaves are stamped with Old Olive ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched out with the Leaf Punch.  The flower is stamped with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Chocolate Chip ink.
  • The Gold Foil circle and the Very Vanilla circles are cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits dies.   
  • The tag on which the words are stamped (with Chocolate Chip ink), is 1 x 2 3/4, and Paper Snips are used to cut the tail at the end of the tag.
  • The sequins are added with glue dots.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Flurry of Wishes for my December 16, 2017 class
OK, so here's the deal-I had planned to offer this card at all of my  December 5, December 7, and December 9, 2017 Creative Therapy card classes.  Didn't happen for the ladies who came on December 5,😔.  I am so sorry.  Then it snowed/rained/sleeted, and I postponed my December 9th class to December 16, and I am offering this beautiful Christmas card at class this Saturday.  I'm excited. 

 Recipe: 
  • The base is a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Night of Navy, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Silver Foil layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 x 3 3/4, and dry embossed with either the Softly Falling or Winter Wonder embossing folder.  I stamped my words with Night of Navy ink before I embossed my cardstock.
  • The snowflake is stamped with Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Flower Medallion punch.  (On the clearance rack for $10.80😊), and backed with a piece of Silver Foil, also punched with the Flower Medallion punch.
  • The 3/8" Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon is wrapped around the front under the medallions.
  • The retired embellishments in the center of the medallions are from SU.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.

Tuscan Vineyard for my December 2017 classes
Today I thought I would showcase a non-Christmas card I am offering at my next set of Creative Therapy card classes on  December 5, December 7, and December 9, 2017.  
I offer six cards from which to choose at each class, and of the six, those in attendance can make one each of one of the cards for free, (I like free, don't you?), and this is the card I have chosen. 
I used Thoughts & Prayers for my words, and what if you don't want it to be a "Thinking of You" card?  Easy, just change the words.  It's that easy. 
     
Recipe:
  • The base is a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Sahara Sand, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Elegant Eggplant layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Very Vanilla layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The strip of Sahara Sand on the Vanilla piece is 1 3/4 x 5.
  • The ovals are made with the Layering Oval Framelits dies.
  • Easy, peasy, for sure.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Star of Light and Eastern Beauty for Christmas
I saw this card on Cindy Elam's blog, Heart's Delight Cards, post of November 5, 2017, and you can see her card Here.  It was changed up some to make it my own, of course, right!!!  I am so pleased with the way it turned out, and most of the credit for that goes to my faithful assistant, Michelle Wallace.  Thank you Michelle.      

Recipe:
  • The base is a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Cherry Cobbler, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Gold Foil layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Very Vanilla layer is 5 x 3 3/4, and is dry embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder..
