I'm super excited to share today's card with you because it features my very favorite stamp set in the Holiday Catalog - Merry Mice.  I simply could not resist those adorable faces!

Today's card is extra special since it involves a fancy fold - what I'm calling a "window card".  Although it looks fancy it's easy to assemble.   You can find pictures and cutting dimensions below.  

I'm pretty sure you will fall in love with these adorable faces, too!

This picture is perfect for pinning to your Pinterest board.

Give Thanks with Vintage Leaves

Finally, the Florida weather has changed!  Our mornings and evening temperatures have dropped into the low 70's.  I've broken into my "winter wardrobe" and wearing sweaters and jackets.   I'm not complaining.  It's a welcomed change!  

And, so is today's card.  You might be thinking "a blue leaf"?!  Yes, a blue leaf!  The colors are deep and rich, just like fall and you're going to love the shimmer.  The Gold Wink of Stella is splattered across the front of this card and plays up the Gold Glimmer Paper perfectly.  Plus, you know I hate 'predictable'. ((smile))  

Vintage Leaves Give Thanks, Lisa's Stamp Studio,

The Leaflets Framelits coordinate with the Vintage Leaves stamp set making this an effortless card.  The sponging is done with daubers, creating a beautiful palette for the greeting.  If you aren't a fan of the colors, change it up. The layout is easily adaptable  and a refreshing change.

Quick Crafting Tip - Protecting Foil Sheets When Die Cutting

If you own a Big Shot, or any other die cutting machine, you know that the clear mats/pads that you use to protect your project become scuffed and marred.  It's to be expected and it's also a sign that you're using your die cutting machine.

Those marks can leave a nasty texture on things like vellum and foil sheets.  Today's quick tip video will show you a simple, way of preserving the surface of these papers.  You won't ever have to worry about those marks transferring to those surfaces again! 

Mark your calendar!  November's Studio Stamps in the Mail ordering begins on MONDAY - October 24th.  November's packet includes the Santa's Sleigh Bundle including the stamp set and framelits plus the pre-cut supplies to make 8 cards; 2 each of 4 different designs.  I include a video and a PDF tutorial so we can stamp together!  Embellishments and envelopes are always included and everything is delivered Priority Mail to your home.  Easy, convenient and fun!  

Ordering is for one week only - ending on October 31st.

Awesome Arrow Frame - Marquee Messages

Simple text can play a huge role in any handmade card, especially when you can frame it!

I created this  card using the Marquee Messages stamp set. The retro style images and fonts are so much fun and appropriate for anyone.  The set includes different greetings make this a versatile and fun set to use for just about any occasion.  

The arrow image is part of a larger image so I chose to stamp it on Basic Gray cardstock and cut them out. The fussy cutting is easy since the outline doesn't entail any curves.  I used the White Chalk Marker to fill the dotted edge to bring out the white cardstock layer.

Flirty Flamingo cardstock makes up the base of this card.  I created a 1/8" layer of Basic Gray cardstock behind a layer of Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  

I used the Sparkle embossing folder on the Peekaboo Peach layer - perfect for that retro fell.
