October Card Buffet

Cards and Bows!  Yes, it is never too early to start thinking about Christmas when it comes to card making and crafting.  I love sharing card ideas with all my friends, and this is the time of year when I make lots and lots of cards.  I volunteer at a local food ministry, and I have been making their Christmas cards for the last 5 years or so.  It is a real blessing to me and I hope to all that receive the card.  I have 170 to make this year along with some sets of cards for a craft show.  So...I better get going.

Even with all the holidays upon us, birthdays still happen.  Wouldn't this be cute for a December birthday with Christmas Designer paper?  Hmmm...I just might have to try that.

 O Holy Night!

Peace on Earth - Can you see the sparkly paper?  It's an easy, fun technique.

Bows!  Learn to make your own custom bows from Stampin' Up Designer Paper.  
It's easy, fun and so cute.


  1. Beautiful cards, Marilyn. I especially like Peace on Earth. Did you use a dryer sheet to make the sparkly paper? Saw a tutorial on that recently and looks similar!

    1. No, I stamped the tree, cut it out with the oval die and then smooshed Versa Mark all over the oval. Then I embossed it with Iridescent Embossing Powder. The picture doesn't do it justice. I'll have to look up that dryer sheet technique. I like learning new things.

  2. Beautiful, dear friend! Your creativity is amazing. But then, I recognized that years ago, right?! Love you!
