Moonlight Madness

I have been busy getting ready for an open house in Lisbon this Friday. It will be held in Kirsten's Studio of Dance at 412 Main along with other independent consultants from a variety of businesses. It only goes from 7-9pm, so be sure to get downtown for a fun night.

I will have lots of samples of Christmas cards. Here are a couple...

Both cards are using the new sets Four the Holidays and Delightful Decorations along with the matching ornament punch. I used my Big Shot to make the raised impression with the textured impressions folder, Petals-A-Plenty. The sparkle on the blue card is using a sponge dauber and shimmer paint, which is also new in the 'Holiday Mini Catalog'. The top card uses Whisper White and Real Red cardstock with the bottom card using Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue.

Hope you like them and hope to see you this Friday, 7-9pm!
Have a great day,

Lovely as a Tree

With this strange weather, I haven't seen many pretty fall trees, so I thought I would make some.

Just a little Joshy to brighten your day.

Club Cards

Here is the latest club cards we made. This stamp set is Inspired by Nature colored in using markers. The colors are Summer Sun, Garden Green and Chocolate Chip...ooo that reminds me I made chocolate chip muffins for breakfast and they were yummy!! We used Crystal Effects on the brown centers of the flowers and sprinkled clear Micro Beads on it to make it a little bumpy and shinny.

This card was inspired by the pretty snowflakes that fell earlier in the week, not this half a foot of slush and muck we just got hammered with. This card is made with the Big Shot and the Movers and Shapers Curly Label Die. It cuts and scores the card leaving the curly label wherever you position the magnetic die. The stamps are from the Hostess level 2 set Christmas Punch and works wonderfully with the punches. We added a little Dazzling Diamonds for some sparkle. The card stock is Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue with Night of Navy ink.

Have a great day!

Pheasant Season

Hello everyone! Where did fall go? I hope it comes back....
Anyway, in honor of opening pheasant season, I made a fall card using the stamp set Autumn Days. If you know someone who loves to pheasant hunt, this is the set for you! The colors are dusty durango, really rust, and more mustard. I will be gone for a few days, but will come back with a couple cards from my monthly stamp club. Have a great Sunday!

More Halloween Cards...

Here are some cards from "stamp til ya cramp" which was last night.

This is a pocket card by Mary M using SU! Designer Series Paper 'Cast-a-Spell'. Thanks for the treats Mary. She even added a cute bookmark!

Here are cards made by Bea R and June W. I love the fun colors. Thanks for the chit-chat! I needed that!

This was my card swap which uses the grass from Inspired by Nature in white craft ink on Basic Black with cute little googly eyes peeking out. The phrases, 'spooky nights' and 'halloween frights' are from the set Halloween Frights punched out in old olive cardstock. The base card is Rich Razzelberry with a little border of old olive. The inside is done using the skeleton from Scary Skeleton with StazOn black ink and filled in using the white gel pen. I just love how this card turned out.

I hope you liked the cards. Thanks to Mary, Bea and June for sharing their card making talents with us.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping!

Hello all! I have been waiting for the right moment to start a blog and this is the day. I was hoping to start one on the first day of school, which was my first official day 'off'', but yadda yadda yadda....here it is.

This card was done for a swap with my upline to showcase the new In Colors and a new accessory. I chose Crushed Curry for the base card and Eggplant Envy for accent which was textured using the Big Shot texture plates. The accent is the new 1-1/4 inch striped grosgrain ribbon.

This is a card from my monthly stamp club. It uses the Scary Skeleton and Frightful Fence Wheel. The base color is Bordering Blue with a Dusty Durango accent using the new Modern Label punch and word window punch which work great together. The little phrase is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the black swirls are from Swirls Scribbles using the Big Shot (which I love).

The inside of the card uses the stamp from the level 1 hostess set, Holiday Best. I used the In Color markers to color the stamp and a Rich Razzleberry accent using the Modern Label punch again. The cute pumpkin is done layering 3 Large Oval punches in Dusty Durango which were sponged in DD for dimension. The stem is done using the Swirls Scribbles again with the big shot in Old Olive.
