I do adore a banner!

No, it's not too early for Christmas!

This tag banner was inspired and CASEd from There's an excellent tutorial on that website as well.

I used the SU! Ski Slope DSP, as well as Riding Hood Red, Only Olive, and Chocolate Chip CS, 2 circle punches, and a lot of adhesive to make this. These colours are gorgeous together!

This project is easily modified to display a word or message of your choice. I can see a whole series of them already...Happy Birthday, Happy Easter, Joy, P

To close this post, here's a close-up...I embossed each letter with Winter Wonderland EP and raised the red circles on dimensionals.

Thank You Cards

I love the kwerner colour challenges; the combinations are always unique and gorgeous! I made a thank you card based on this and on the card found here: . CASEing is always a great jump start when the inspiration station is down!

The picture is small for a reason...I had to photograph at night, so the colours are waaaay off! The So Saffron CS is really a very gentle yellow, which lets the other colours pop off the page.

Besides the Scandinavian Season rolling stamp, I also used the 'thank you' stamp from the Elegant Notes set. I embossed the rolling stamp so that using markers to colour in the image wouldn't make the black ink run. This is also the first time I used the guide for the rolling worked like a charm!
