With many classes on the schedule, preparing for an open house (November 15...mark your calendars!), and planning for my own Christmas crafting, I have been a busy girl!
This is a card that I made using the current in colors and one of my favorite stamp sets, Upsy Daisy. I colored the stamp with the markers so that the flowers could be different colors...I love that technique! And, the Big Shot (Top Note Die) made this card super easy and quick! Leave me a comment to let me know what you think! :)

Okay, as heart wrenching as it is for those of us that find great joy in creating darling cards to think about, we know that the ultimate destination for our cards is a dark, sad place called a trash can. Though we try to stay blissfully unaware of that fate, we know that really, how many cards can you save? To be sure that your hand crafted sentiment is appriciated longer than most, why not make an easel card? This card has a built in stand (easel) for immediate display. How much easier does it get to show off a lovely card you've received? I stumbled across this technique this morning and had to try it right way. It was super easy to make, and, I must admit...it's really cute! What do you think?
Oh, and by the way, check back later in the week to see an adorable gable box that we will be creating in the upcoming Party Favors class (Thursday, October 29th). For more information on that, as well as other classes, please visit my web page (www.amycrilley.stampinup.net).

Here is a sneak peek of one of the cards we will be creating in the upcoming "Punch Party" class. Not only will guests create this easy, yet adorable card, but they will go home with three other punch perfect cards! There will also be other examples of creative ways to use punches on display. This class is next Friday, October 2nd from 6:30-8:30, and the rsvp date in next Wednesday, September 30th. I hope to see you there!
For a complete description of this class, along with a list of other workshops that have been scheduled, please visit my website: www.amycrilley.stampinup.net.

Hello again! After taking the summer off from blogging, I am excited to be back! I have so many great cards to show you from my summer creations, and I will be posting many cards and projects during the upcoming holiday season, so check back often!
This card was a very simple concept. By using the Big Shot Scallop Circle die and the flower punch, this card was quick and easy! The colors used were Soft Suede, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry, all of which are the current In Colors. Both the "thanks" and the leaves were stamped in Soft Suede.
I have recently posted a list of upcoming worshops, which begin in October and run through December. You can visit www.amycrilley.stampinup.net if you are interested in perusing the list!

Once again, the color combination comes from Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge (#43). The colors are: old olive, brocade blue, pumpkin pie, ruby red and chocolate chip. Aside from the brocade blue, these are colors that I use quite often. A few accents that may not be apparent from the picture are paper piercing on the bottom of the old olive paper, silver centers for the flowers and ruby red ink bordering the whisper white card stock. Have you tried a Color Inspiration Challenge yet?
