Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (page 145 AC)


Adding color is so easy! I used my Old Olive stamp pad and dragged the ribbon across.


SOFT SEEDLINGS stamp set, July - Dec. Mini sneak peak


Sneak Peak and, no, I am definitely not ready for Fall but I LOVE this stamp set!


IMG_6970Love this card too!  It is from my friend, Debra Tack, who lives in Clarkston, WA.  Debra is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator that I met at convention in 2008 for about 15 minutes!  We happen to sit at the same table at lunch and started talking because I saw a picture of her cat, Mr. Charlie.  We have been sending cards back and forth ever since.  My friendships are certainly the very best part of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!!!  She always sends great cards and, of course there is usually a cat involved.  She has two ~ Jake & Blue!

May luck be Yours on Halloween

Love getting cards in my mail box and I have a new one to show you.  This one is from a friend in Grafton ~ Sally Schwaner ~ a very crafty lady who works at NASA.  She is a librarian ~ sorry Sally ~ I don't know your official title!  Her card is the spookiest that I have received (and I am a bit concerned about the black cat)!

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam

May luck by Yours on Halloween

Vintage Stampin' Up!


Who remembers Build-A-Bear from 2009?  Isn't she a darling witch?  Leave me a memory and I will choose a participant to win this month's Paper Pumpkin box of winter goodies!  Or, leave me a picture ~ I found this witch way back in my files..............

Left overs and more.........


Left over orange glitter paper and my cat punch made for a fun afternoon of creating some Halloween cards that are fun and not very scary at all.  I also used the Black Glitter Paper on page 53 in the Holiday catalog and the CLEVER CATS stamp set (on the inside of the cards).



And, one more.  This one uses the FESTIVE & BRIGHT BUNDLE on page 64 in the same catalog.  The FESTIVE FINISHES DIES bundled with the stamp set enable you to create a detailed cut border by using one of the coordinating dies or you can cut the right and left edge of the design (2 coordinating dies) creating a panel to add to your card.  On my card I used the die on the right side only.  Questions?  Happy Halloween coming soon!  Have a great Saturday!


Have a Merry October!



Happy October!  I was excited to make this card yesterday with the MERRIEST MOMENTS BUNDLE in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  You can find it on page 43.  The Bundle is one that is special because it contains the stamp set, an embossing folder and 16 dies!  I used the BLENDING BRUSHES (page 129) to add color by tapping on Fall colored stamp pads.  Have a wonderful month!
