Welcome fellow Stampers and friends~
   Wow, time is moving along, and it's already a New Year -- 2021!  As a member of The Gentleman Crafters Design Team, I look forward to sharing a new project with you each month and hoping it will inspire you to try something new.  
  I decided to play around with  the Curvy Dies, featured in our Jan-Jun 2021 mini catalog and I came up with what (I think) is a cute card for lots of different ocassions.  For this card I am only using one of the dies, it's the one with the row of holes across it.   It reminds me of rolling hills across a horizon, and I thought it might be fun to try layering them with different patterns and textures.
  Before joining Stampin'Up! , I was a weaver, textile artist/designer.  I am naturally drawn to the many patterns and textures in our Designer Series Papers (DSP).  So I decided to feature the Boho Indigo DSP in this project.

The Gentleman Crafters Design Team - November Blog Hop!

Welcome fellow Stampers and friends~
  It's so hard to believe that we are already into November and in some areas snow has already been falling and accumulating.   Thankfully, actual snow isn't a given during Winter here in Eastern North Carolina.  I tell my friends, that I have experienced snow and I am completely satisfied seeing pictures of it these days.  So feel free to share your snow pictures with me!
    I am very happy to be a member of The Gentleman Crafters Design Team, and my contribution this month, is guess what?  A snow themed card!

The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team - October Blog Hop

Dear Fellow Stampers and Friends~
Welcome to the October Inspirational Blog Hop of The Gentlemen Crafters Design Team (TGCDT). Each month we come together from across the globe to share some of our designs and hopefully inspire you to re-create them for yourself. 
This month I decided to do a "Step Panel card" using a returning favorite Christmas Bundle, Christmas Gleaming.  The paper is just exquisite and really shows off well on the finished card.  Of course you can use this design with many different holiday and other occasions just as well.  I hope you will enjoy creating this card, and I would love to see photos, so please leave comments.  The finished card folds nicely to fit into a regular A2 envelope. I've included some photos to help with the dimensions and assembling the card.
