For this year’s December Daily, I decided against the Ali Edwards kit and went instead for the Document December kit from Elle’s Studio. I really really loved the imagery and the colors in this year’s kit. In addition to the kit itself, I grabbed some extra tags and accessories plus a cute coffee kit.
Today’s cards have been sitting half done for months now. I had a whole stack of these unfinished cards and took a Saturday to knock them out. I had the Regal Rose card bases and smaller pieces cut for a previous card, but had sold the stamp set that I used for those cards. SO I improvised with a different stamp set. I stamped three different images from the Hand Delivered Stamp Set and had some fun coloring them.
Stamps: Hand Delivered
Inks: Basic Black; lots of colors
Cardstock: Regal Rose; Daffodil Delight; Whisper White
Accessories: Candy Dots (retired)
Tools: Lucky Stars Embossing Folder; Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder; Stripes Embossing Folder
Lots of journaling and photos, not quite so many decorations. Love how this month’s pages turned out. On to November!
Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card where anything goes! Every once in a while, I get the urge to make completely random cards, no design plan, no theme, just a card. This was my attempt at using no stamps but lots of fun DSP. I really wanted to feature the beautiful copper accents in the Joyous Noel DSP. Love how this one turned out!
Check out that shine!
Cardstock: Joyous Noel DSP; Copper Foil; Crumb Cake
Tools: Celebrate You Thinlits; star punch (retired)
Today’s cards have been sitting half done for months now. I had a whole stack of these unfinished cards and took a Saturday to knock them out. These cards feature leftover donuts from a Paper Pumpkin kit. I hate wasting little pre-cut elements, so I pulled out my stack of paper scraps and starting pairing paper, DSP, and donuts. I love the eclectic look of these cards.
Today’s card has been sitting half done for months now. I had a whole stack of these unfinished cards and took a Saturday to knock them out. I had stamped a ton of flowers and random panels and these were the only ones left. I had the great idea to fussy cut all these stamped and colored flowers, but my goodness, I dislike fussy cutting. At any rate, this turned out to be a cute card.
Stamps: Pieces and Patterns
Inks: Basic Black; Flirty Flamingo; Crushed Curry
Cardstock: Pick a Pattern DSP; Flirty Flamingo; Whisper White
Tools: Stitched Shapes Framelits

Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to create a card using the following colors:
I pulled out the colors and pondered the direction of my card. I knew I wanted to use the Making Everyday Bright leaves to decorate and adorn something. I paired the leaves with the Time for Tea stamp set to create a card full of leaves and a cup of tea. I then finished out my card by adding more texture (embossing folder, ribbon) and visual interest.
Stamps: Timeless Textures; Time for Tea; Making Everyday Bright
Inks: Highland Heather; Smoky Slate; Crushed Curry; Cajun Craze
Cardstock: Country Lane DSP; Smoky Slate; Very Vanilla
Accessories: Very Vanilla Lace Trim
Tools: Spot of Tea Framelits; Seaside Embossing Folder
Today’s card has been sitting half done for months now. I had a whole stack of these unfinished cards and took a Saturday to knock them out. This card is a play on a card design from last year. I switched out the main stamped image but kept the rest the same.

Inks: Basic Black; Powder Pink; Regal Rose
Cardstock: Regal Rose; Blushing Bride; Whisper White
Accessories: Pearls; Petal Burst Embossing Folder
Today’s card is being featured on Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration. The challenge was to CASE a card from fellow Design Team member Cheryl Hamilton! I picked this cute baby kangaroo card to CASE. I loved the layout and kept most of those elements. But I changed out everything else. I wanted to make a fun autumn card to celebrate the first week of November. My circle framelit doesn’t quite fit, but I love the elements of my main piece. If you look closely, you can see pops of Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron to balance out the palette.
