Happy Halloween!

I made a few of these treats for my friend's kids for Halloween. The candy sleeves are so handy!
Here's a close up of the owls. I used the peakaboo frames die and spider web embossing folder.

Happy haunting!

Super easy card

I had some leftover DSP from a project that I was working on, and I happened to turn it over and saw the big flower perfectly positioned for this super simple birthday card. All I had to do was add the sentiment and it was done!
Love it when things fall together like this! Have a great weekend!

Baby card

My sister requested some baby cards, so I made this card for her. I love using my die cut letters. The duckies are from the Every Little Bit stamp set.
I still like the bright colors in the Big Top Birthday paper. Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Shower booties

I made a baby shower card using the new Stitched Stocking stamp set and matching Stocking Builder Punch. I also used the stripes and polka dots embossing folders to add more texture.
Hope you had a great weekend! We were busy decorating the house for Halloween. We're a little late this year, but at least we got them all up!

Day of Gratitude thank you

I got my inspiration for this card from a card we made at the Portland Regionals last year. I used the Day of Gratitude stamp set and Old Olive and Soft Suede. You can't really see it in the picture, but I added a pearl in the center.
I think this is a great fall card.

Treats for the classroom

I've been busy with some projects for my friend's kids to take to school. I made 48 Halloween treat toppers for the new 1" x 8" cellophane bags. I haven't filled the candy bags yet, so these are the un-assembled tops made using the Peekaboo Frames die and the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set.

I also started on their Christmas treats using the Holiday Stocking die and the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit. I assembled these to actually be able to hold some candy. The kids are going to finish decorating the stockings using the stickers that come in the kit.

I'm kind of glad I was able to get these out of the way cause I still need to do all my Christmas cards and make some tags and gifts too! I haven't started on any of it yet, not even a design!

Yuki Sister Stamps

I think Yuki is my favorite of the Sister Stamps. She is so happy with her stocking full of goodies.
I wanted to keep the layout simple so I wouldn’t distract from Yuki .

The Sister Stamps blog has more information on where you can get these stamps!

Thinking of You owl

This card was kind of a stretch for me to make. It was actually pretty simple to do, but I really had to think outside my normal "box". I have a few layouts that I use all the time and hardly deviate. I used a textured plate for the tree and used the triple flower punch for the leaves on the tree and added an owl.
Here's a close up of the owl and you can see the texture on the tree.

I think I need to branch out more often - pun intended =)

This card was inspired by these candy wrappers. I really liked how the wrappers turned out, so I decided to make a card too. I used the postage stamp punch to make the pinwheels and added some pearls to the center.These are so easy to make, but add so much dimension and texture to the card.

And of course I used the matching Big Top Birthday DSP.

Shimo-San Sister Stamps

I got my new holiday Sister Stamps over the weekend and couldn’t wait to use them. This is Shimo-san.
I decided to make the background all white and I embossed it with snowflakes. And with the all white layout, I thought the sentiment matched perfectly.

I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out. The kids are so cute with the snowman!
