It’s Raining Cards

This is sort of a non Stampin’ Up! topic, but I had to share what I call a super cool card tree holder that I received from my friend, Lori. It’s very difficult to photograph and really grasp what the whole thing looks like. It was originally meant to hold photo’s, but as you can see it’s a great way to display cards as well. The size also adjusts so it can be displayed on a tabletop. The brand name is by Umbra and here is the link if you’re interested.   Umbra Card / Photo Holder

Thank you again Lori for this awesome and thoughtful gift.

Guest Stamper – Sue D.

I wanted to share a sweet doggie sympathy card that Sue D. made with the So Sorry stamp set on page 137 (big catty). She recently lost her dog, Magic and as we all know it’s tough to make sympathy cards when the time is needed. Thanks for sharing.

So Sorry stamp set

Although not shown, inside the card says “for the loss of your beloved pet.”   Also included was the Rainbow Bridge Poem that came from another friend of ours that I want to share.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

Scentsationally Simple

We all know that less is more and these simple cards say it all. I love this new stamp set, Scentsational Season with the matching Holiday Collection Framelits Dies. It’s also available as a bundle set (see page 16 in the holiday catty).

Save time by running everything through the Big Shot in one pass.

Try it with the new scented embossing powders, Sugar and Spice and Peppermint Sticks. The scent lasts for two weeks and you can always refresh the scent by using a Versamarker pen, then heat emboss.

I can’t wait to try the new Early Espresso embossing powder for the gingerbread man and the Gumball Green embossing powder for the Christmas tree.

All images are popped up with dimensionals and rhinestones top it off for that sweet blingy touch. Ink colors used, real red, gumball green, early espresso and daffodil delight. I used Very Vanilla card stock and the corner rounder to finish it off.
