I'm Baaaack....just in time for Halloween!

It has been so long since my last post. I am so sorry. We had a tsunami with flu, strep, and bronchitis roll through our house....and a tough time getting over it. But, we survived and then I hit the craft room floor running to catch up on my October birthdays, Halloween.....and get a jump start on November birthdays.

Here are October birthday cards! The stamp sets used are One Wild Ride and Christmas in the Making.





And November birthdays are done! I used Eastern Beauty bundle set with Eastern Palace designer paper, Eastern Gold stickers along with gold foil paper on these two.


 Here, I used the wildly popular Beautiful You stamp set.

Sadly, this one is made completely with retired stamps, paper, dies, and embellishments. I hope Stampin' UP! will bring back the Urban Underground Suite next year!

Then, I made Halloween cards. Here are some of them.....I mailed out a few before I thought to take pictures. Spooky Night and Wood Textures designer papers added a little Halloween humor to watercolor, highlighted with Wink of Stella shimmering on the moon.


 No Halloween project would be complete without silver embossed spider webs!

 And, ohhhhh, that Graveyard Gate is just too cool!



 And these cute little guys are stamped with a retired stamp set, but they are punched out with the Cookie Cutter builder punch and the paper is from the Spooky Night paper.

And finally, I made another wedding card similar to one I made a couple of months ago, for another nephew getting married. That Graveyard Gate is so versatile!

ANOTHER Facebook Giveaway??? Coffee Break Time!

As you can tell, we have some nice giveaways on my Facebook page.  When the new Holiday Catalog came in, I asked each one of my customers, on the catalog mailing list, to post a picture of their catalog upon receiving it, to their timeline and  tag me in the post. One name was drawn from those who posted on their timeline. The winner received a $25 gift certificate. I decided to throw a little extra in, like with the prizes from other drawings and contests. 

The winner wanted the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set,
so I threw in a set of 6x6 sheets of the cute double-sided Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.

 and the trio of matching ribbons
and matching folded cardstock notecards to make 12 greeting cards

and different sizes of cut stock for stamping images and sentiments
and envelopes to match
and a few cards to use as examples and for the winner to share with family, friends, or business associate



 















I feel another giveaway coming on....so Like and Follow my Facebook page now! You don't want to miss out!

Free Stamp Sets Come With Cards!

After making some samples for each of my prize winners, I made 2 cards for each person using stamp sets like the ones they picked out. I hope each person will not only use the cards I made to brighten someone's day....but make some similar on their own! Unfortunately, these stamp sets were available for a limited time only.....but there are other similar stamp sets that would be ideal for making cards like these.

Avant Garden
These cards are made using Whole Lot of Lovely and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper...both of which are gorgeous papers. I would love wallpaper in either of these patterns!






Designer Tee
These stamps are using Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. Isn't it beautiful. That flowered paper is so pretty, even Binx the Craft Cat loves it.







Hey Chick
This was one of the most sought after stamps sets in Stampin' Up history. We suspect it may be included in the next annual catalog next spring, because it was so popular. The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper is perfect with it. 




Make a Medallion
This stamp set was a beautiful accent for the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set and the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper, both of which are still available. These cards are made using the Eastern Palace DSP.










Here are some of the items used in these projects. Click on the picture for more information:
