Beautiful Handmade Cards Gallery Using Pretty Kitty, From Land to Sea, Fabulous Flourishes and Work of Art

Hello, Stampers!

Here's a treat for you!!!  Below, you'll find a gallery of beautiful cards that we've created in the last week or two.  I'm also including several pictures featuring Fabulous Flourishes.  These cards were designed and prepped by Oksana Semenska, our wonderful workshop leader in Port Orange, Fl.  You can see more of her beautiful and inspiring designs at

I hope that you'll find enjoyment and inspiration with our creations!  Later this week I'll be featuring the cards from our Christmas in August Card Swap party!

Here are the wonderful projects we made with Oksana at her August workshop.  So many wonderful details and lovely card layouts.  What you cannot see is that picture #2 is actually a darling little folder with 3 x 3 notecards and envelopes.  Thank you, Oksana!

Here are some of the fun cards we made in workshops the past week or so!  You'll see cards using From Land to Sea, Work of Art, Made With Love and more!

Here is one of our first Christmas cards for 2016!  A cute penguin spinner card!  Fun!
Oops!  This kitty card doesn't have it's sentiment tag! :)

So many color possibilities with this masculine birthday card!

Here is another baby card that we made using a different color palette and layout.  So adorable!!

Woo Hoo!  If you are a Monday AGOV stamper, email me to tell me that you saw the sneak peek for this Monday's cards below!  A prize will be awarded!  I love both of these cards, I have to admit.  

Could a card be any prettier!  A little DSP and some framelits and you have a WOW card!!
Yes, I love this Christmas card!  What is really fabulous is the versatility of this limited time available stamp set!  Get yours now!!  We'll be making both of these at Monday and Wednesday's classes!!

Have a wonderful week!!

Hilton Head Divas Stamping Weekend!

Hello Stampers!!

Are you ready for some real inspiration???  My Direct Downline Diva, Linda Williamson, and her two Downline Divas, Cindy Davis and Cindy Green, met up in Hilton Head recently to spend some quality stamping time together.  Their results are just amazing. They completed nearly 90 cards!  So enjoy, their wide range of fabulous designs, color combos and major pretty!!

Thank you for sharing, girls, and keep up the good work!

Have a wonderful and creative day!!!

Color Challenge Entries and A Sneaky Peek at My Christmas Swap

Hello, Stampers!

I hope this finds you well, happy and finding some creative time!

We are getting ready for our Christmas in August "Swapfest" so I thought I'd give everyone a little peek at my card.  I can't wait to reveal the whole care and the other 9 gals' creations to all of you!!  Check us out on Facebook after August 15!  We have already posted the Color Challenge cards on our Facebook pages.  If you have an account, please like and/or leave comments at

 Here's my sneaky little peek for our Christmas swaps!

I love how the colors worked together for Colette's card.  I have to admit to wanting a cupcake RIGHT NOW!  :-)  Nice work, Colette!

Dara is one of my Monday am stampers.  She was so smart to put that beautimus  DSP to good use.  I love the banner and frame.  Thank you, Dara!

What a pretty sailing card!!  I love the aquapainted background and the frame.  Very creative, Mike!

Aubry may be the youngest (11) member of my regular stampers but she is way beyond her years when it comes to design and use of colors.  I love the sweet background flowers and the artistic swooshes.  Thank you, Aubry!!

Here is my entry.  I had fun with the background embossing folder, the square framelits and, of course, the adorable goldfish.
