This month's stamp set is Tag It.  This is Stampin' Up!s Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set.  For everyone purchased, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to RMHC.  This year at Convention, Stampin' Up! announced they are a global sponsor.  Wow - what a great company and I'm happy to feature this stamp set this month.  This stamp set is available in English, Spanish, French and German.

My 3 samples are quite simple and are great for a stamp a stack or quick card class. 
 I made this card for my niece's birthday.  It used the new incolor - Coastal Cabana cs and stretch ribbon.  Love that new 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim.  The ink was Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana markers.  I used the Chevron Embossing Folder to add some dimension to the cs.  I also used the new White Stampin' Chalk Marker from the new Holiday catalog.

 This next card used Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Whisper White cs.  I used markers to color the stamp so it allowed me to color Santa.  Some of the pieces in this stamp set coordinate with the Chalk Talk Framelits.  I used one of the framelits to cut out a piece of the Season of Style DSP Stack and then another one to cut out the Santa piece.  Added a little more with the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.

I think DSP makes for a quick card and allows you to tie colors together.  Here I used a piece of Eastern Elegance DSP featuring the Crushed Curry and Smoky Slate.  Again I used one of the Chalk Talk framelits to cut out the stamped piece and the Basic Black matt.  The ribbon is 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon and I used the Top Note die.  Simple and quick.

The next stop of the tour is Susan Carlson.  I'm sure Susan will wow you with her creatiions.  Thanks for stopping by.
