Hello there! So sorry for the late post. I've been painting and running around trying to round up stuff for a tea our church is having this week-end. I've also had lots of "help" from Quinten washing the tea sets:/ I made these sweet little treat boxes for my card ladies at Club Card Night last week. I started with the adorable Tiny Treat Boxes.

I wrapped a piece of Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Crushed Curry or Bermuda Bay around each box and adhered with Sticky Strip. I then added a piece of Motley Monsters DSP on top of the ribbon and flagged the bottom. I used the fun little guys from Freaky Friends and stamped them in Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango.

I used the Postage Stamp Punch to punch out the Whisper White Cardstock. I then layered a banner underneath each using the Bitty Banners Framelits along with the Big Shot. I layered everything on top of various squares with Dimensionals in between. I finished off the top of the box with a pair of Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

I tied a piece of the chunky Two-Tone Trim around the box and tied a knot-love how the ends fray:) Finally I added a greeting using the exclusive limited time Hostess set Good Greetings-available with a $300 party in September & October. I stamped it in Basic Black ink onto Crushed Curry Cardstock and punched it out with the Banner Punch.
These were so much fun to make and the ladies loved them. They'd be a perfect project for you and your little goblins to make:) Be sure to stop back tomorrow~lots more to share! Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Hello there! Here's the final card we made at Club Card Night. I used the set Cycle Celebration, a set I've had for awhile but rarely use. I decided it would be a perfect send-off to summer. I started with a Crumb Cake base and added a piece of Confetti Celebration DSP. This is my most favorite design of all our designer papers:) I scored it at 1/4" and folded it over to expose a Strawberry Slush border. I stamped the bike image in Tangelo Twist ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I cut it out with the help of the Big Shot and Starburst Framelits. I then used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a Crushed Curry circle to layer underneath.

I stamped the sentiment with Basic Grey ink onto a strip of Strawberry Slush and flagged the end. I used the 1/2" Circle Punch to pop out a couple circles for the tires. I used the darkest Coastal Cabana Blendability Marker to color the Basic Rhinestone Jewels, and they turned out to be a perfect match to the Bermuda Bay in the paper. I added a Brights Button and attached the circle with Dimensionals. For the accents at the top of the card, I used the 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch to punch a hole in a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock and centered the 1/2" Circle Punch around it. I finished it off  by threading a piece of Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine through the holes and tying a bow.

It's always kinda sad to say good-bye to Summer knowing what lies ahead, but hopefully we'll have a nice long Fall to enjoy:) Make sure to check back tomorrow for a fun Halloween treat. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Hello there! Here's a sweet card made with my favorite Hostess set, Nuts About You. I started with a Daffodil Delight base and stamped the border image with Perfect Pennants in Daffodil as well. I used the Essentials pack with the Paper-Piercing Mat & Tool to add some interest along the edge. I flagged a piece of Sweet Taffy DSP and adhered it to the bottom of the card and added a strip of Beach House Washi Tape.

I then stamped the tree image in Soft Suede onto Whisper White Cardstock and added the cute little opossum. I colored the leaf image with an Old Olive Marker three times and punched the images out with a 3/4" Circle Punch. I attached the leaves with Dimensionals and wrapped a piece of Old Olive baker's Twine around the bottom and tied a bow. Next I used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and punched out a heart from a piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock and used the 1" Square Punch to make the fun little accent. Finally I finished it off with a pair of Brights Candy Dots.

Such a bright & cheery card to send some encouraging thoughts:) I'll see you back here tomorrow with another card to share. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there! Today I have a super quick & easy card to share with you using the set For All Things. I got the idea from our demonstrator magazine and changed a few things up a bit. I started with a Very Vanilla base and cut off 1/4" on the right edge and adhered a piece of the lovely Venetian Crochet Trim. I then stamped the watercolor image in Crumb Cake. The sentiment and leaf image were stamped in Old Olive and I used the Mossy Meadow Marker to give some depth to some of the leaves.

I filled an Aqua Painter with 3 parts Old Olive ink and 1 part alcohol and tapped it on my finger to add a little splatter~it's always a surprise how it will turn out. Next I added a couple pieces of Color Me Autumn Washi Tape and finished it off with a Gold Basic Metal Button. I thread the button with a piece of Linen Thread and tied a bow, and that was all there was to it:)

I've been busy knocking out dozens of cards for our Card Ministry at church, and I'm really glad that one of them is an easy one:) Make sure to stop back tomorrow~still lots more to share! Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Hello there! This is one of the cards we made at Club Card Night last night using the Fall Fest/Fun Fall Bundle. I started with a Basic Black base and adhered two designs from Motley Monsters DSP. I made the tag by embossing the single stamp Halloween Street with VersaMark and Crushed Curry Embossing Powder. I added a bit of Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon and attached it with a teeny staple made with the Handheld Stapler.

For the ghostest with the mostest, I stamped the image with Whisper White Craft ink onto Sahara Sand and embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I cut him out with the Fun Fall Framelits and adhered with Dimensionals. I added a Crushed Curry moon behind him using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and stamped a trio of bats from Holiday Home with black ink.

This was such a fun card to make and the new Holiday Catalog made it easy! I've got lots more cards and projects to share with you over the next week, so make sure to check back tomorrow. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Hello there! Sorry for the long break, but I've been a busy girl. I've decided to hold a monthly Card Night at my house for Club Members. And I've been DEEP cleaning. We had a huge tent sale a couple of weeks ago which was extremely successful. We got rid of lots of stuff, including 8 boxes of retired Stampin' Up! stuff, so naturally, I needed to get more:) I got a huge box of brand new Holiday goodies last week and I've been busy prepping for Card Night. I can't wait to share all of these projects with you, but for now, these sneak peeks will have to tide you over.

We'll be making a fun Halloween card using lots of new stuff along with a fall card...

a card made with my favorite Hostess set...

and another made with Cycle Celebrations. I figured our bike-riding days are numbered, so we'll send out summer with a bang.

I've taken a couple of months off of holding events, so it will be nice to get together with this small group of gals again. And it's good incentive to keep my house clean:) Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there! Just popping in to share August's Paper Pumpkin Kit called Seriously Amazing...and it IS seriously amazing! The kit makes 4 cards with different sentiments, and it includes 4 extra laser cut fronts to make more:)

It also came with 4 card size envelopes and 4 gift card size. I traced around one of the large envelopes before I assembled it to have a template to make more for the extra cards:)

The kit also had all the components to make these sweet little gift card holders with 4 extra cut-out fronts to make more.

Aren't these the cutest little things?

No doubt, this is my favorite Paper Pumpkin so far! I hear that next month's kit is Halloween and has cute little burlap bags. Can't wait to see what the mailman brings next month! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
