HAPPY FALL!  Sunday was the first full day of Fall and, I've been waiting patiently.  So pleased to welcome September 22 at 9 PM ~ Fall's arrival!

Katy Bryant was in my Christmas Card Class on Saturday morning and she brought some Fall cards that she had created recently ~ lovely!  Thank you for letting me share, Katy ~ I love your cards and the use of the Woodland Embossing Folder ~ a great way to welcome FALL.

Card 3

Toil & Trouble

Witch w Buffalo background

Halloween card from our STAMP CLUB this month.  You can find the suite ~ TOIL & TROUBLE ~ on page 49 in the Holiday Catalog.  The check background is one stamp ~ BUFFALO CHECK ~ on page 38.  I have stamped it in as many as ten colors and love it every time I stamp it ~ a great background, don't you think?  It is easiest to use if you have the checks facing you and ink it up with your stamp pad.  Place your cardstock on top of the ink, cover it with a piece of scrap paper and smooth with your hands to transfer the ink.  It is so much easier to use that way!  The ribbon, Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon, is sparkly and adds so much to any of our craft projects.  You can click on the picture of the ribbon below to go to my online store if you are interested in having a spool of your own (10 yards).

Trifold Witch CardThis card is a trifold card using the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (5 1/4" x 12").  The witch can be die cut from the DSP or by stamping the image ~ you can have as many witches as you want!  No problem.

Halloween Cards

Stampin' Up!'s HOLIDAY CATALOG includes Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I thought I would share some Halloween cards with you starting with a cute stamp set called, of course, TRICK OR TWEET.
