Sparkle Leaf

November is right around the corner and this is a perfect November fall card. The card stock and ink colors I used are Soft Suede and Baja Breeze (both from Stampin' Up)  The pattern paper is from "First Edition Specialty" from Stampin'Up. The maple leaf is heat embossed using white embossing powder. I then sponged ink around the embossed leaf and added glitter glue (from Ranger).  I added wrinkled ribbon (seam binding) that I antiqued with Bronze glimmer mist (Tattered Angels).

Best Witches

I made this "witch" card using the Cricut cartridge Mini Monsters. The background glitter paper is from a Halloween paper pack. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up set. I stamped the sentiment and then punched it out using the label punch (Stampin' Up). The button is from DeNami Design (Boutique Buttons) in Halloween colors. The little google eyes finish this cute little witch. Thanks for stopping by!

More Vintage Halloween

Again, here was another vintage Halloween picture I found. And again I distressed the edges with the ink Vintage Photo by Ranger. I matted it on Stampin' Up card stock and added some Stickles glitter glue. Very quick and simple.

Vintage Halloween


I'm not sure where I found this picture, but I knew I would want to make something with it. I cut the picture down a little and matted it on Pacific Point blue and then on Dusty Darango (all of the pieces were distressed. The card base was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder from Stampin' Up. I added a little orange glitter glue (Stickles) on the pumpkin. I have another vintage halloween card to show next time! Thanks for looking!

Totally Tools


Here are a couple birthday cards I made using the set "Totally Tools" (Stampin' Up). I had a friend ask for some masculine birthday cards and thought this set would work. I colored the stamped tools with Copic markers, cut them out and attached them to the printed background paper. I found the brads shaped like "nails and screws" at Hobby Lobby. I thought they would look good on a card like this.

Greeting Card Kids

Here are a few samples I made with the set "Greeting Card Kids" (Stampin' Up). For the Halloween card, the image is colored in with Copic markers. I distressed the image a bit to make it look more vintage and also sprayed it with glimmermist to add some sparkle. The ribbon is wrinkled seam binding. The back to school card image is also colored with Copic markers. The alphabet background was created with the stamp "A to Z" (Stampin' Up). I also used the wrinkled seam binding ribbon on this card. The Christmas card image is colored with Stampin' Up markers. All materials on this card are Stampin' Up. Just wanted to show you what a cute set this was. I haven't used the Valentine image yet, but soon! Thanks for looking!

Pencil Card

I got this pattern idea from a friend. She sent me a card similar to this last year for back to school time. I dug out her pattern and came up with this. I used the swiss dot embossing folder for the background. I used Stampin' Up red polka dot ribbon for the eraser part. The "thank you" stamp and the scallop circle punch are also Stampin' Up. I used an apple brad for the embellishment to finish off this card. Thanks, Kristi for the cute idea!

Apple Treat


This is a little birthday treat I made for one of my teacher friends. She teaches first grade and I thought this would be cute sitting on her desk this morning. I used the "kids" stamp from a retired Stampin' Up set, "Heart and Home". The cute apple paper is from Craft n Craftin' (Back 2 School set). The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. Some chocolate (wrapped in matching print paper) in an apple tin finishes off the gift. Thanks for stopping by!
