Mini Christmas- embedded embossing technique

Hi all,
It's Monday and I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Gumball Green is one of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors. Here's the embedded embossing card I made. It's a very simple technique to do and apply to any card. I still have a few touches and embellishments to add. The Designer Paper came from the Holiday catalog and will be available for purchase August 1st.  Thanks for Looking!!!

Double Pocket Happy Birthday Card

Happy Thursday Everyone!!!  I wanted to share a double pocket card I made for a special little girl whose birthday is tomorrow.  This card was very easy to put together and only uses ONE sheet of paper. The pockets make this very useful for any occasion... This birthday card will be holding a gift card in one pocket  and a message tag in the other. I used Designer Series Paper which can be found in the current Stampin' Up Catalog. The word stamps that were used are retired but still very useful. 

Tonight I will be making an Embedded Embossed Card for a Challenge with the Late Night Stampers. Wish me luck!

Mouthwatering layers

It's Tuesday, and this is my first attempt to blog, so please excuse the confusion and chaos.
This is the first of many cards I designed for the Layers, Layers, and More Layers Challenge.  On this card I chose the new In Colors: Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple to compliment the Cherries from the Mouthwatering Stamp Set.  I also embossed the cherries with scented embossing powder.
