About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Season's Greetings


I hope your work week is off to a good start. Mine certainly is! The technical organization of my company, which is the organization that I work for, had our Annual Awards meeting this morning (virtual this year) and I learned for the 2nd year in a row, I was a winner for my job category. Whoo-hoo! It's nice to know that your hard work and willingness to help others is recognized.

Enough of that, on to my card for today. I made this card for Nance's color challenge on The Paper Players blog. This week is white on white. Classy and elegant is what I think of for this color theme. Viewing the cards already in the gallery, the PP ladies are going to have a tough time choosing winners because they are all gorgeous!

Here is the card that I made.

I used some MFT, Mama Elephant and TE dies for the card front. No stamping! ( I just realized that part). The Die-namics tree die was cut from X-Press It Blending white card stock and from SU silver Glimmer paper. The Falling Snow die is Taylored Expressions and the Stitched Scalloped panel underneath is a Mama Elephant die. The sentiment is also Die-namics. I cut out the words twice and glued them together. I then heat embossed them with white EP 3 times for a thick coating to make them stand out. I wanted a little variation in the white shades, so the card base is made with Neenah Solar White 100 lb card stock.

I'm also entering this card in this week's Inspired By All the Little Things challenge. The white, sparkly tree fits their inspiration photo this week.

The inside is stamped and heat embossed with silver EP and I've added a Paper Source snowflake sticker.

I don't know where that air bubble came from, but I'll fix it before sending. The sentiment is from SU Hearts Come Home set.

That's it from me today. Thanks, as always, for stopping by,

Stamps: Hearts Come Home by Stampin' Up (inside sentiment)
Paper: X-Press It Blending  and Neenah Solar White card stock, SU silver Glimmer paper
Ink: VersaMark
Other: Die-namics Tree and Season's Greetings dies, Mama Elephant All Prettied Up die, Taylored Expressions Falling Snow EF, Silver and white EP, heat tool, the Big Shot, SU silver twine, foam tape, Paper Source snowflake sticker


  1. Oh, this is so pretty! Fabulous take on the inspiration photo!

  2. This is GORGEOUS! I'm jealous of your triple embossing - it looks like enamel. I need to practice! Thanks for playing along over at The Paper Players this week!

  3. I like all the layering of dies you've done and the sparkly tree stands out well. The star part for me is the gorgeous die-cut, triple-embossed words. They look fantastic! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

  4. Colleen you did a fabulous job with this challenge! I love all the white layers, especially your beautifully embossed sentiment. Wish I could see it in person! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Paper Players!
