Hi Yogi ~ As always, your cards are absolutely stunning! I love how the gold foil creates such a 'simple yet elegant' look to the cards and the embossing folders are like frosting on the cake. I enjoy seeing 'all' your work, you truly are one gifted and talented lady. Keep up the good work, I wish you lived closer to me ... lol
Hoping I have the opportunity to win some of Suzanne's beautiful stamps! Thanks for this chance, Hugs, Sandi

Excellent idea using aluminum foil, I didn't think of attaching it to card stock before embossing, I will definitely try it. Thanks for the ideas.

Beautiful-- just beautiful! I am especially taken with the "Oh, Santa..." card, as it surprised me to see a very elegant card made with a fun stamp. I would have never thought to combine things in such a way! Thanks for turning on the inspiration.
Best Wishes,

Hi Yogi -

You must have been reading my mind. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with some ideas for Christmas cards this year. I knew I wanted to do something with the Cuttlebug embossing folders, but I wanted something quick and still pretty. You have inspired me (as always). I love the cards, and I love that you used aluminum foil. I just got the 2009 Cuttlebug folders and the foil will be so nice to use. Thank you for the splendid idea and the beautiful cards!

Thanks - Elaine Allen

Pat Pacheco said...

Yogi,
Thanks for creating this blog. It is full of info and inspiration. I enjoyed your cards and what I like the most is your color schemes. You combine colors that I wouldn't think go together but the way you do it they look great.

Well, I'm late, but I still want to tell you how much I like your cards. I want to try out what you did to the snowflake background. I've inked my Cuttlebug embossed pieces before, but I've never heat embossed them. I can just imagine the glow of the hollographic EP on that background. Thank you for the idea.
