This is the other card Nancy shared with us at Demo Night last week. For this card she used the Cottage Greetings stamp set and the new Tip Top Taupe card stock. We all agreed this color was growing on us! I love the soft, elegant look of this card!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets to make masculine cards with. It is also a great stamp set to make frames or coaster with as gifts for those who live in the warmer climates and/or enjoy the water and boating. This card was made by my fellow Demo Diva, Caroline. She used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make the frame with. Very clever lady! Thanks, Caroline, for sharing your creative talents with me/us.

This was the "bonus card" last week for Diva Night. Creative Demo, Nancy, had an extra card for us. We made her beautiful shoe box share AND anyone who was present got to make this awesome card! She used some of the Designer Series Paper from the Cherry on Top stack to make her cup/bowl. I love how cheery this card is. Thanks so much for sharing, Nancy!

"That Michelle" hits it out of the bargain again! Seriously, check this gorgeous card out!!
This is truly a breathtaking card, and it was super, super easy to make. You know what "That Michelle" did? You will never guess, so I have to spill the beans. She took a piece of the Stampin' Up! Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper, cut it to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" inches, mounted it on a piece of Basic Black card stock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and then mounted it on a card base (4 1/4" x 11" and scored on the 11" side at 5 1/2"). Then (the big reveal), "That Michelle" used a dauber to sponge ink onto the roses. This is so stinking beautiful in real life! Thanks so much "That Michelle" for letting me share your creative genius!
There are few things in life I look forward to as much as a Ronda Wade Stampin' Up! event, and Creative Convention is just around the corner. This is a great time to jump start my Fall and Winter classes with a little bit of extra creativity. I am participating in a 40 card shoe box swap on Thursday evening and I have made an additional 30 cards to swap. That is a lot of samples to share with everyone! On Friday I got together with the ladies I am going to attend the Creative Convention with and we worked on our swaps, so mine are all finished and now all I have to do is wait and get more and more exciting with each passing hour!!

Today's card comes from Sonja Knaisch. You can find her blog HERE. I really like the elegant look she achieved without a lot of muss and fuss coloring. AND she has added a matching envelope; which I love. The envelope is just a little something extra to let you know what's inside is going to be really awesome!

Today's An Open Heart selection is from Sara Hoogendoorn over at www.simplysarastampin.blogspot.com I love the way she colored the bird with the white stripe and then added the water coloring at the bottom. It really softens the image and makes it look warm and inviting!
There are too many great things on sale this week to pick a favorite. I have wanted the bow builder punch, but just kept putting off purchasing it; and how many embossing folders do I really need? Those buttons are beautiful, but you can't mail them....... well, now that these things are on sale, no more excuses. It's time to save some money!!!

With the holidays around the corner, I thought I would start off the "An Open Heart" stamp set week with a card from Lisa Young over at www.addinkandstamp.blogspot.com I love Lisa's cards because she has an elegant yet simple style that I like to think mirrors my own style a bit!

Here is another card I made with my Holiday Catalog goodies! For this card I used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch and the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies along with the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set. This Holiday Catalog is the best. I had to place a second order already. Now if I could only find some way to fit more card making time in!!

Here is another sneak peek from the Holiday Catalog. For this card I used the new Boughs and Berries Embossing Folder (my new favorite embossing folder), the Reason for the Season stamp set and the Christmas Greeting Thinlits Dies. I made the "peace" with the sparkling diamonds paper, and it is so beautiful in real life!
You can order from the Holiday Catalog beginning September 1st. Need Holiday Catalog goodies before then, consider becoming a Rubber Room Rambler and enjoy the perk of pre ordering! Your Starter Kit can be products from the Holiday Catalog!!

This is a sneak peek of the card I will be sharing with the Divas this month. It uses the Snow Place stamp set from the Holiday mini, along with the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set from the Holiday Mini. I purchased both of these items in a "bundle" and saved even more. Pre order from the catalogs is one of the most awesome perks of being a demonstrator!!

This is Keri's Diva share. She used the Summer Silhouettes stamp set to make this card, and the stamp set includes the little design at the bottom, which looks like Designer Series Paper. Can you say clever....
