Oh Yeah....I Remember This One!

I've been doing a series of Technique Classes for customers and have been going through techniques I haven't done in a while.  So the "Oh yeah, I remember this one" was the first thing I thought of when I pulled out the Emboss Resist instruction sheet.  In addition to making the technique card, we also make a card using that technique.

Supplies used:  Night of Navy & Whisper White card stock, Night of Navy; Versamark & Marina Mist Ink; White Embossing Powder (Clear embossing powder will work as well); Festive Flurry Stamps & Framelits; Greetings of the Season; Rhinestones.

More Paper Pumpkin "Bits & Pieces"

Our grandson, Thomas, turned 10 years old yesterday.  I kind of struggled with his birthday card because he isn't a "little kid" anymore and I don't have a lot of stamps that would appeal to a boy his age.  And then along comes Paper Pumpkin to save the day!  August's kit had this cute bike stamp so Voila!  Happy Birthday Thomas!

More "Bits and Pieces"

There are a lot of items in the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit...and it can be used for more than just decorating for Thanksgiving!  Our family has a lot of birthdays in September so thought I would use some of the kit to make some birthday cards.  The background paper that looks like the bark of a birch tree is great for Fall and even Winter themed cards.

Clean and simple...and on it's way to Dayton, OH!

Do You See What I See?

September's Paper Pumpkin arrived yesterday so this morning I opened it.  One of the things I love about Paper Pumpkin is that you can whip up the four cards very quickly so when you need a card, it's all done.  The other thing I love is that you can use pieces of it and create different projects.  (To order your subscription, go to

OK...back to this month's kit - the first thing I saw was...a spider web!!  Right??  So after putting together a card as intended, I made another one....

Let It Snow!

I am leaving bright and early tomorrow morning for San Diego - courtesy of Stampin' Up!  I earned the Weekend Get-a-Way so I am treating my husband to a well deserved trip.  I'll post when I get back but wanted to leave you with a project that will be part of a Christmas Card Class next week. 

It is made with the Label Thinlit and Whisper White card stock. I embossed the smallest snowflake from Festive Flurry with Heat & Stick powder, and Gold Stampin' Glitter on one of the Gold Foil Sheets and die cut it with the Festive Flurry Framelit.  I embossed the right edge of the card with a Delicate Designs folder.  I finished it off with some Silver 1/8" Ribbon and a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.

Rays of Sunshine

One of my fellow demonstrators, Mary Ellen Stites, posted this technique so I thought I would give it a go.  Very fun!  Punch out a circle from a post-it note (be sure to catch the sticky part!), and stick it on your card stock.  Mark the center with dot as this will be your focal point.  Using daubers and ink, line up a piece of cardboard with the focal point and move out toward the edge of the card stock to create the sun's rays.  Fill in the sky and the sun as desired and add any other elements you wish.  I used Lovely as a Tree and the greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Colors are Crisp Cantaloupe, Old Olive, Early Espresso and So Saffron.

My New Favorite Stamp... least for now my new favorite stamp is Gorgeous Grunge.  This stamp set is very versatile!  Our oldest grandson turned 17 last week and he is hoping to attend the University of Michigan when he graduates from High School.  So it was pretty easy choosing colors - Crushed Curry and Night of Navy close to Maize and Blue!  The Happy Birthday greeting is from You're Amazing stamp set.
