{ Baroque and Pomegranate Love }

Stamp Sets: Baroque Motifs and All Holidays Paper: Brocade DSP, Pomegranate & Vanilla Ink: Pomegranate Accessories: Silver Brads and Round Tab Punch

Ya know, you would think after 6 months with this set that I might be staring to get tired of it, but I'm just not! And I've even used it for several swaps and even to make some invites - I usually get tired of a set after all that. However, I still just LOVE this large swirly stamp. It is so sophisticated, elegant, versatile and feminine! I was drawn to it from the first moment that I laid eyes on it, and I'm still in love! Anyway, nothing new or unique about this layout, it's a golden oldie but really let me show off a lot of the big beautiful swirl, so I'm happy! I'm really starting to get a feel for this Pomegranate color. When I first got it, I thought it was a pretty color, but it is so rich and vibrant that I just didn't know what to pair with it. I feel like I'm finally getting a handle of it. But really, once you get started, there are SO many posibitlites. Here, let me show you what I mean! Try Pomegranate with: River Rock, Blush Blossom, Old Olive, Soft Sky Chocolate Chip (what *doesn't* go with chocolate? ;) ), Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Basic Grey, Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Night of Navy, Barely Banana and Mellow Moss! See? And, I'm sure there are more that I just haven't tried! Feel free to let me know if there is a combo that isn't on my list that I should give a try!


{ Mom's Birthday }

Stamp Sets: Warmest Regards (retired) Paper: Kraft Ink: Chocolate Chip Accessories: Silver Brads, Just Delightful Simply Scrappin' Kit (retired) and Pretties Kit

Okay! I finally feel like I've rested a bit from the past CRAZY month. November and December is such a hectic time for us as we have my Sister and Niece's birthday in November along with Thanksgiving, December has my Mom's and my husbands birthday plus Christmas and New Years! It feels like we have no time to just relax. I was whipping up cards and gifts left and right! But, the good side of that is that I now have PLENTY of stuff to share with you for a while. I tried very hard to remember take pictures of everything I made so I could share them with all of you! And, I actually think I succeeded (at least, I think so!).

So, onto the card! I made this card for my Mother's birthday. I just love the Simply Scrappin' Kits because they are so versatile! The striped paper, green and numbered borders, the flowers and the leaves all came from the kit! I love to use up scraps and the kits just make it so darn easy - the coordinate papers and images stickers - all I have to do is get a card base (I used Kraft cardstock here) and embellish! And, as an added bonus, the card matched her gift perfectly (it was the little scrapbook that I shared with you most recently). This card seriously took probably all of 5 minutes to make - quick AND cute? That's what I'm talkin' about! ;)
