Into the Pumpkin Patch ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy Sunday to you.  Today I’d like to share the last of my Motley Monsters trio … three cards from one sheet of the designer paper.  Believe me, I have enough to make another 3 cards, if not more!

The beautiful leaves on yesterdays card were flipped over to the pumpkin side today … How fun would it be to walk through the pumpkin fields as cute as these.  My cat & bat are the leftovers from the Motley Monster line up on Friday’s card.


That’s what I call great left overs … all I did was stamp the “Trick or Treat” greeting from the Good Greetings stamp set. Don’t forget you can get this stamp set for free with a qualifying order or hosting a stampin’ party.


I added a strip of Crushed Curry for a pop of color and then wrapped it with burlap strings that I pulled off of the burlap ribbon.  I love that it’s crimped and adds a natural look and great texture to the card.

Another quick and easy card using the fun Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper. I’ll be back to share more Halloween and Autumn cards.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!



Trick or Treat …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

It’s FRIDAY!!! And it’s been a while since I did a “Fast -n- Furious” Friday so I thought I would bring it back today.  I have a cute and easy card for Halloween… your ghouls & goblins will love it.

We will begin with the “Motley Monsters” Designer Series paper. It is so fun to use, in fact … for the next 2 days I will share with you 2 more cards that are not only made with the Motley Monsters, but with the same sheet of paper!

Over the next few weeks I will be doing a Halloween showcase … so stay tuned!


For this card I simply cut this piece of paper down to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ … I then matted it with Bermuda Bay and mounted it onto my Basic Black Base.  That easy!

The greeting is for our hosting promotion stamp set, Good Greetings.  You can get this stamp set for FREE by hosting a home stampin’ party, a book show, or by placing your own order … $300 in sales is all you need.  This is above and beyond your regular hostess dollars!  Sweet!!


The greeting is highlighted by the Word Window and Modern Label punches.  I used the smallest of the pearls and dyed them black with a Sharpe® … I like the way it anchors the greeting.  I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up and create more texture.

Don’t you just love these Motley Monsters? Can YOU guess which one of these little guys is my favorite? Put your response in the comment box … I’ll let you know tomorrow which one it is.


Thank you for coming to my blog today …

Hope you have a sweet one!




Trimming the Tree Christmas Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Welcome to a brand new week! Yesterday I shared a “glitzy” Christmas card so today I’d like to share a card inspired by one of my Christmas trees that I decorated in the past.  I did a nature inspired tree with raffia, cardinals and stars.


The card reflects the tree in many ways, the colors are warm and inviting … Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler. I used the linen thread to reflect the raffia on the tree.


To pull the cherry color in I used the Basic Pearls and colored them with the new Blendabilities “Cherry Cobbler” collection.  I color them while they are still on the paper and then transfer them to my card.

I created a focal point by highlighting the tree with a “Crumb Cake” oval.  I used dimensionals to pop it up and create added dimension to the card.

I even brought the stars in with the use of the “Trim the Tree” paper stack.  I love those paper packs … when I cut down the paper to the desired size (usually 5-1/4″ x 4″) I use the left over pieces to decorate the inside of the card and my envelope.  I love it when everything coordinates … one of the things that drew me to Stampin’ Up!

The sweet “Merry Christmas” greeting is from the “Good Greeting” Hostess stamp set … which you can get for FREE when you host a $300 stampin’ party.  That is in addition to the Hostess benefits you already get.


So gather your friends and lets make some awesome cards, pull together a book show, or just place an order yourself.  Choose any of these options, I’d love to help you get your “Good Greetings” stamp set! Contact me today … this offer ends October 31st!

As always, I have the list of supplies that I have used to make this card below.  Click on any one for full details or to begin your shopping experience.  Please let me know if I can help in any way.

Have a wonderful week ~
