Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a beautiful start!  The sun is finally out here in New Jersey after almost a solid week of rain and clouds.  It really is nice to see a blue sky!

Today’s post is a little different.  Last night we had our monthly stamping “get together”.  Monica Van Buskirk  was our hostess this month.  We shared some tips and tricks and created beautiful cards.  It’s always fun to get together with everybody.  Below are the projects we made.

Monica shared some Warm Hugs, her home and the pizza!   Her card and matching tag were all from the Heartwarming Hugs Bundle.  I love the simplicity of the tag and card.  Her set is adorable.

Barbara’s card is a Fun Fold Z Card with the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper and the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  Barbara’s holly combination is beautiful. I love foiled card stock, but am not fond of photographing it.  My picture doesn’t do this card the justice it deserves.

Georgia’s stunning card used the Poinsettia Place Suite.  Again, pardon my picture.  I love the Foil Sheets, but am not fond of taking pictures of them.  The Foil Sheets and Plush Specialty Paper are an incredible combination for this card.  You really have to personally see and feel this card to appreciate it.

We had a special guest join us.  Monica’s friend, Karen joined the fun.  Karen’s card is the most adorable barn door.  The colors are warm and inviting.  I love the barn door handle and the Thick Whisper White Bakers Twine bow.  The “hello’ door hanger is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Cuter than cute!

My contribution was a re-make of a one layer card base gift card holder which I posted earlier this week.  You can click here for the original post and to download a printable PDF for a tutorial. I used Snowflake Splendor DSP and the Celebration Tidings stamp set for the stamped images.

So, gather your stamping friends, share a project or two, eat some pizza and enjoy the fun!
