Colorful Seasons for Fall

I thought you might like a beautiful Fall card to add to your collection.   Our leaves in Hampton Roads seem to take a very long time to add color to the landscape but we can make our own!  Each card will turn out differently so never fear ~ just enjoy!

July Stamp Club project

Foil Frenzy from catty

 We used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper in our STAMP CLUB classes last month.  You can find the SUITE on page 77 in the catalog.  The stamp set, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GORGEOUS, is bundled with the HAPPY BIRTHDAY Thinlits Die (backward, below).

Happy Birthday die

The paper sparkles with the colors of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Soft Sky & Pumpkin Pie ~ so pretty in 'person' ~ wish you could see it ~ stop by!

Foil Frensy DSP

We used the DSP and the die in our club projects ~ choosing one of two colors.

Do you have a little time to create this weekend? Try this technique!

Great Big Greetings

For those of you who have been stamping for awhile, and have a little time this weekend, you might like to try this TECHNIQUE called TARNISHED FOIL.  You will need to have Copper Foil (#142020 on page 195) and embossing powder in three different colors ~ Copper, Gold and Silver.  I will add the PROJECT SHEET for you and, remember, you can click on any of the pictures at the bottom of the page to go directly to my online store!  Let me know what you think!  Susan Elise

Picture of all of the colors

These pretty colors will be retiring soon and, once the announcement is made, the in-color products seem to disappear quickly.  It would be a good time to check to see if you have your ink refills for all the colors and to see if you have enough cardstock in your favorite colors.  Let me know if you need to order before the products are sold out.   Here is a pretty card using Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush, print out the PDF below.

Tasty Trucks

Tasty Trucks in black

You can find this cute little truck on page 13 in the SALE-A-BRATION catalog.  The set includes cupcakes, ice cream cones, hot dogs, tacos and waffles so you can make it into any kind of truck you would like.  As far as I am concerned the only food missing is lobster!  (Did you know that there is a LOBSTER TRUCK in the parking lot near the corner of Shore Drive and Great Neck? It is the BEST!)  Happy Saturday!  Susan Elise
