File Folder Thank You

Here are a few thank you cards I made. I seem to always be in need of "thank you" cards. The "thanks" is cut from the Cricut. The apple is from the set Elementary Days (retired Stampin' Up). The inside has a white insert. Quick and easy! Happy Halloween!

Bella Rose

When I first saw this set, it didn't strike me as one I would want to get, but after playing around with it, I think it is one of my favorites now. This card is very versatile, it could be a birthday, sympathy, thinking of you or get well, also. I made this one using the colors night of navy, bordering blue and old olive.

Paper Magic

I found these cute Christmas embellishments by Paper Magic at Michael's. These came in a box with matching cards and envelopes. They were fun to play around with. The snowman card was part of the kit, but the trees are made with a kraft cardstock base stamped with the wheel "blizzard" from Stampin' Up.

Santa

I have been spending so much time on fall and Halloween cards, that I didn't realize I was running a little low on Christmas cards for my craft shows, so this weekend I spent some time working on Christmas cards (that is after my craft show on Saturday and a day of shopping with friends on Sunday - not much time for card making!) Here is a Santa face made with a few punches. Pretty simple, but I'll show more later this week. TTFN!

Fall Fun

Here are a few fall cards I had available during my workshop this weekend. I think my favorite one is the autumn leaf. This card was made with the autumn embossing folder from Cuttlebug. The leaf is also cut from a Cuttlebug "cut and emboss" die. After it was cut and embossed, I added some gold ink. The tree card was made with the new set called Season of Friendship (Stampin' up). The owl card was fun, but it involved a lot of pieces with Stampin up punches. The sentiment on the owl card is from Endless Creations, Inc.

Trick or Treat!

I had a Stamp-a-stack workshop this weekend and had about 14 different card designs for my friends to choose from. I hope everyone had a good time! During this time, it was brought to my attention that I haven't updated my blog in a while (I actually brought it up - mentioning what cute ideas my friends had on their blogs!) I think I spend more time scoping out what's out there instead of keeping mine updated! Actually, reading other blogs is more fun than doing mine! But I did say that I would get some pics up so here are some of the fun Halloween cards we made on Saturday. I think my favorite is the candy corn. But Frankenstein comes in a close second! The candy corn card uses the set Tasty Sweet (Stampin' Up). The candy corn design is just a pattern I created. I began with a rounded corner triangle cut from the Cricut using George and Basic cartridge. The frankenstein card is made with mostly punches (Stampin' Up). His hair is cut from the Cricut using the grass design on the Plantin School cartridge. The spider web card is made using the Cuddlebug web embossing folder and the stamp set used was Batty for You (Stampin' Up)
