Halloween Fun

Hello Everyone!  Halloween is almost here!  Can you believe it?  We're well into fall and the colors on the trees here in the midwest, are spectacular!  I thought a fun Halloween card was in order.  For this one, I used PTI's Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Fillers Fall.  The papers are from SU--cajun craze, black and Frightful Sight dsp.  The Friendship Jar stamp has a coordinating die.  I used it to make the clear, polka dot "glass".  I think it turned out really cute and really gives the jar some interest.  A coordinating envelope is in the background.  
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Everyone!  It's been ages since I posted.  I guess I haven't been a very good blogger lately.  Half the time, I forget to take a picture of cards that I've made.  Rolling eyes here!  Well, I remembered to take a picture of this card that I made for a baby shower for our first grandchild!  He's due in November and I can't wait to be a grandmother! 
I used the Baby Bundle stamp set from Stampin' Up.  Aren't these the cutest images?!  Card stock colors used are bashful blue, old olive and soft suede.  I love the way this turned out.  After the shower, my daughter-in-law put the card on a shelf in the nursery.  Happy Days!  Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate a Birthday

Whenever I think of birthdays, cake always comes to mind.  How could it not?  What goes better with a birthday than cake!  This little cupcake, from the Create a Cupcake stamp set by Stampin' Up, fills the bill.  I used soft suede and blushing bride inks to create the little sensation.  After stamping the "frosting", I covered it in versamark ink and heat set it, using iridescent embossing powder.  Such a pretty shimmer.  The sentiment is on the inside of the card.  It reads "happy birthday with a cherry on top".  This is from the A Word for You stamp set, also from Stampin' Up. 
I love all the polka dots throughout this card.  It really gives such a feminine and fun feeling to the birthday celebration. 
Thanks for stopping by.
