This week's Make it Monday by Betsy was very inspiring! I was able to do some stamping this afternoon, and here are the results:

Hope everyong had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was quiet, with just my husband and me, but it was great. We will have leftovers for a month! :-) I did have some time to stamp in between preparations, and was able to create this card for the November PTI Blog Hop.
I pulled the plaid from the gingham pillows, and used the beautiful poinsettia dies with Pure Poppy. The ribbon and leaves were made with New Leaf. I added some white pearls with my Viva Pearl Pen (I love it, it's so easy!). The sentiment is from Verve's Bright Spirits. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the hop!

For this week's Make it Monday, we had to get out our glitter. It's all over my table now (and me!), but it was fun! I started with some Royal Velvet and Ocean Tides cardstock ~ what a pretty combination it is in real life (had trouble getting a good picture today...) I used my Music Notes background on the Ocean Tides layer. Then I cut a strip with my Half & Half die, and used my glue pad to ink up the striped patteren. I love this glitter from Martha Stewart, it has to be my favorite color! Next up, the Mat Stack 1. Finally, I used some Ocean Tides ink for the sentiment, and took the little snow Flourish from Tag It's 8 as an accent.

I wnted to try a second technique that Heather showed on her Make it Monday video. This card uses faux stitching, done with paper piercing and a white gel pen. I used the Flower Fusion #6 die, the leaves from Simple Sunflower, and scraps of paper from Basic Grey's Green at Heart collection. I also sewed my buttons on, something Heather showed us as well.

Have you all been seeing the fabulous new Verve stamps coming our way? I'm really excited about all the sneak peeks! This evening I was able to pull out some of my favorite verve sets, and put together a card using this weeks MOJO sketch. I needed a baby card in my stash, and wanted to do something a little different. I chose to use some Basic Grey Marjoline papers, in grays and apple green. My little elephant is colored with Copics, and I used a mix of gray and greens for him.

Good Morning! I had time to get stampy last night while my husband was at a meeting. I had this poinsettia made, and decided to put it to use. I found a scrap of Jovial plaid paper left from last year (one of my favorites) and liked how the deeper reds looked together. I added a little strip of sheer gold ribbon, and stamped one of the sentiments in black. The center of the poinsettia was made using a glue dot and pressing some gold microbeads into it. Love how that turned out!
Hope you all have a happy stamping day...!

The second card today, is for a sweet friend going through a rough time. I pulled out some new Autunm Rose products as my starting point. I love the Harvest Berries set, so it I used that to create the background. The larger stems were stamped in Old Olive, and the smaller in Spring Moss. I tested out the different pink inks I have, and found that Melon Mambo worked pretty well, so that was used for the triple dots. The single dots are in Purely Pomegranite. The sentiment used stamps from Mat Stack 2. I finished it all with the pretty small dotted ribbon in Autunm Rose.
