Happy Halloween!

I didn't just want to give my three grandkids candy, so I made them each a 2 pack of s'mores. I couldn't find the Halloween Peeps I saw earlier this month......so I found these HUGE marshmallows at WalmartThese clear bags are still the Clearance Rack ($1.59 for 25). We originally had them in the Holiday Catalog last year.
Top the bags off with some of the Pumpkin Pie and Black Chevron Ribbon.  (this ribbon is on sale today, see below) I punched a Whisper White 2 1/2" Circle and sponged each circle with Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Ink. With Black Stazon Ink, I stamped using the Best of Halloween stamp set.

You can see these HUGE marshmallows in this photo.
So, I had lots of marshmallows and Hershey Bars left over. What to do, what to do?? So I made up some s'mores for my stamp club. They will get them next week. Shhhhhh, Don't tell them! 

For these tags I cut Whisper White Tags using the Chalk Talk Framelits, then sponged them like the others and stamped the Witch and Trick or Treat! with the Halloween Hello Stamp Set.

Joyful Christmas Wishes

I love the name of this stamp set, don't you? Joyful Christmas Wishes. I totally cased this card from Jan Tink. I changed a couple of little things on my card, Cherry Cobbler card base and the Pearls.
Isn't it stunning? And so easy to make. Emboss the Poinsettia with Clear Embossing Powder and VersaMark Ink, onto Very Vanilla. Then use a Sponge Dauber to first apply Blushing Bride Ink, all over and around the flowers, then add some Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center.

I also colored the Cherry Cobbler and White Baker's Twine with Blushing Bride, using my Sponge Dauber. It softened the white in the Baker's Twine. Then added a few Pearls.
This is the second card we will be making in my Quick and Cute, Holiday Card Class on Saturday, November 9th, 2-4pm. Cost: $15 or FREE with a $40 order.

Happy Birthday to You!

We will be making this card in my Quick and Cute, All Occasions class on November 9th, 10-noon.
This card uses the Stripes Embossing Folder and the Modern Medley dsp. The sentiment is from Label Love. You can get a 15% discount when you purchase the bundle.

I thought the sheet music went perfect with this saying. Sounds like you are singing the words, don't you think?

I felt like the Artisan Punch needed something behind it, so I used a black 1 3/4" Circle Punch.
 I'll have another card next Monday to share with you for this class. Wednesday's I will share the Holiday card class cards.

So I used the Season of Style Washi Tape on the corner, stamped the sentiment from Tags 4 You in Cherry Cobbler and layered it on the smallest of the Deco Label Framelits, added some of the Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Ribbon, Done! Oh, and its all on a Crumb Cake base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". And, you know you can get the Crumb Cake cardstock and several other colors cut and scored for you. You can view the flyer here!

A Million and One Thanks

This will be one of the cards we do in my Quick and Cute, All Occasions card class next month. Thank you to LeAnn Greff for this great idea! I love this stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge. You can get it 25% off through October 28th. Stampin' Up! Special, 25 stamp sets for 25% off.
Its really hard to see in the photo, but at the top I used the Illuminate Stamp pad. It gives the card kind of a water mark with sparkle.

This is the first time I used the Chevron Punch this way. I'm loving the Soft Sky Cardstock too! With just a touch of black.

Guest Stamper! Audrey Brady!

Today I have a card from my "Guest Stamper" Audrey Brady. Audrey is the daughter of one of my customers. I think she is 12 years old and comes with her mom to some of my events. I've given Audrey some of my "left" over pieces that I collect, and she sent this card to me.
I think she did an amazing job, don't you?

Her mom gives her some supplies and I gave her the die cuts, or punches that for some reason didn't make it onto my cards, that is what she uses to make cards for her friends. She is a great stamper and I love to have her in class. So, thank you, Audrey, you made my day when I opened your card. 
Ok, so tomorrow is the LAST day to take advantage of the $25 to become a member of the Stampin' Up! family! What are you waiting for? Contact me NOW!!!! I would be happy to have you on our team!
