Fun technique

 Morning.  I made this card using a technique Nichole had on her Monday video over at Papertrey Ink.  I used her same layout on this example, but made mine a Christmas card.  This technique for making the central panel is really fun.  Looks like chipboard, which is hard to see on the photo.
Cardstock, ink, ribbon:  Stampin' Up
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink
Dies:  Spellbinders
Paper:  Basic Grey and scraps

A few more examples using the Papertrey Ink Holiday greetings sets.

Check out the video at   Look for the Make it Monday #37 video.

Grace's Fall Foilage

Good Evening!  This little gem was made by my fabulous friend Grace.  She used all Stampin Up products including the Fall Foilage stamp set.  I just think this is gorgeous.

Speaking of gorgeous, we are having a beautiful weekend here.  The thermometer on my car said it was 70 degrees!  Works for me.

Have a great one....from Martha

Pretty Thank You

Morning everyone.  I decided to try a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my card today.  I used Studio Calico papers from their monthly kit.  Actually, some of the papers were just the tags and adds that came in the kit.  I also sewed around in a zigzag stitch with my sewing machine.  

Sticker is also from Studio Calico.  Stamps are from Judikins and Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  Yo yo is from Basic Grey.  Ink is Close to my Heart.  Don't know brand on pink twine.  This was a fun pattern.  Have a great day from Martha
