Kim : Cupcakes Card and Kim  ,sent us such a beautiful kit with very peaceful and soothing colors, Thanks so much Kim. I didn't  use the die cut words but I do love them and will have them for the next time. Sure had fun with this kit and I have so much left over
 Thanks again Kim!
This is the kit Kim sent out, isn’t it beautiful!
Thanks for the photo 
Christmas Tree
On this one I used all the papers Kim sent , but used my own PTI Christmas tree die 
Christmas Village
This paper had the same curve as  Country Landscape by Memory Box
 So I just die cut the very top and a second layer in black. Sentiment is from
Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Christmas Bling
This is a small card for a gift. Just added some bling !

This time I chose to CASE a card from Amy Stamp-n Paradise I changed it up a tiny
 bit. I thought it was going to be an easy card, not for me!
 I loved Amy’s card and had to try it for myself.
Please stop by and see what the rest of the girls have done.


I have been away a bit to help my daughter, her husband has been away for over a week now. Tom  and many others are  fighting the fires in Northern California . Hopefully Tom can be home with his family in another week.  I hope all the fireman
 can go home soon.
thank you for stoping in

  1. That Christmas Village card is spectacular! So pretty with the black outline and the pink ribbon. I also really love the last card with the banner elements. Your patterned paper Christmas tree all sparkled up was also gorgeous. You really did a great job using Kim's kit Marybeth!

  2. Wonderful cards, Marybeth. You were so creative in what you did. I love your purse. Would go perfectly with my shoe! Your die cut Christmas tree is so pretty. I think my favorite of all your cards is the one with the country landscape. It looks really striking with that black layer.

  3. You have been a very busy girl!! Love all of the projects and am amazed at how many projects came out of that one kit! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays - we are so glad you did!

  9. I love that 3D tree! It sure makes a statement :) And then the little town on the hill, that one is my second favorite. I think its great that you and Kara cased the same card! Great job with Kim's kit, Marybeth :)

  11. These are ALL fabulous Marybeth! My fav is the cute animal print purse with the FUN!

  12. Oh they are all so lovely! I really like the patterned paper for the tree, and choice of paper for the banners, and bling for the purse, and pink pleated ribbon ....!

  13. Marybeth, all your cards are beautiful! The soft colors are so pretty with the Christmas tree and the village scene. Christmas will soon be here.

  14. Fabulous, Marybeth! Your sparkly dimensional tree is just awesome! And the country landscape is so creative. Love the added black layer you used underneath! Both gift tags are adorable--especially the purse--so cute! Great CASE of Amy's card too!

  15. LOVE that paper tree, Marybeth!! :)
    And that super fabby purse...
    I didn't get that one!!
    They're all fabulous...
    and lovin' that CASE too!
    Apparently a few of us had that card in mind...
    I just didn't get mine done because I got sidelined! ;)

  16. These are all fabulous! Love how you layered the PTI tree die, looks awesome that way! You have a great weekend, too! ;)

  17. Marybeth your cards are all breathtaking. So utilized this kit so perfectly, the glitter is fantastic. I always love your style.

  18. So many gorgeous cards! You used so much care to make each one special. I love them all!

  19. Oh so clever that you switched things up a bit... love the Christmas tree with the sparkly snow on it, the little village - wow the black silhouette background really makes it pop, and OMG the last one with all the banners and the pretty bow... LOVE THIS Marybeth!!

  20. Beautiful cards, Marybeth! Wow, what a lineup. I really should start thinking about Christmas cards. I usually put it off until just about the last minute, but I'm hoping to change that this year! Thanks for the inspiration. ;-)

  21. Marybeth, all of your cards are just so stunning! I love your Christmas village, just too cute and I love what you did with that ribbon too, just perfect! And your layered Christmas tree trimmed in glitter, just so festive. Your hand bag card is too cute (that is the image that sold my on using these for my kit) and you did an amazing job with it. All of your cards are just so beautiful!

  22. Marybeth, you did such a beautiful job with this kit! I love how you layered the tree die cuts to make a larger tree, and the glittered edges are a pretty detail. You have such a good eye to notice the curve of the paper matching the landscape die, and the black layer behind looks great. Love your smaller gift cards and will definitely be whipping up some of those with my remaining images!

  23. Marybeth,
    What a great set of cards. They are all so different. Love that Christmas tree!

  24. Marybeth! I am not sure where to start...the tree on your first card is genius! I love that it's folded out in the middle and the sparkle on it is perfect. I also really love the card with the double0cut village scene with that vintage sentiment. LOVE!!!!

  25. Wow Marybeth these are amazing!! Just beautiful!! I love how you all get the stuff and none of you do the same!! Just so cool! Hope you had a nice time with your daughter and her husband comes home soon!!

  26. Hi Marybeth!
    ....WOW..AMAZING..BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE LOVE your tree card and how creatively you've used it to make a big tree! LOVE LOVE! The papers you used were perfect too! Your cards using the digital images are CAS with just the most perfect bits of bling! Can I say though that I am partial to your last card? hehe. I am so very flattered and your version is much softer and prettier!
