Like many of you, my post-holiday time has been very hectic. However, amidst all of the hustle and bustle, I want to make certain that I finish up my favorite cards of 2010 prior to continuing with my Occasions Mini peeks. With that said, here are my faves for the remaining months of September through December. Once again, clicking on the name of the card will take you to the original posts and details.Wreath of Leaves
My Blender Pens and Paper Snips certainly got a work out with this card! Since wreaths are timeless, next year it will be fun to switch out the Designer Series Paper with Stampin' Up!'s newest fall collection.
This fall I was able to take a class from Michelle Zindorf. Although I will never be the master of brayering that Michelle is, I did like the way this card turned out. However, I would love to switch out my ribbon for something scrunchy!
Quick and easy...it just doesn't get any better! The only stamping on this card was the sentiment. With this card I began my love affair with Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper!
And speaking of Deck the Halls, a wonderful sampling of the various patterns can be found in this balloon card! I can hardly wait to recreate this card with the beautiful Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini catalog.
Texture, Deck the Halls, glass glitter, pearls, scrunchy ribbon...need I say more as to why this card was one of my favorites!
With Pearls, Glass Glitter and an Antique Brad, the medallion in the middle of this card is vintage elegance. Once again, I can't wait to see what new Christmas paper Stampin' Up! has in store for us next holiday season. Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper will be a tough act to follow!
This card was created for a Pals Paper Arts color challenge, and surprisingly enough it worked! However, just to see what it would look like, I would love to re-create this in a different color combination!
And I leave you with my Number One Favorite Card of 2010! The ethereal glow of this monochromatic beauty tops everything!
I hope that you have enjoyed this retrospective as much as I have! And I hope that you are ready for my creations from the Occasions Mini! Until next time...
