OMG!!!! Happy Halloween

Take a look at these cute little candy boxes we made for my kid's to take to school. These turned out soooooo cute. I worked on these until midnight, but it was soooo worth it to see the kids so excited to take them to their class and show everyone what we made. One of my co-workers came over and helped out for a few hours (thank you so much Janice) and the kids helped until about 9:00. My son punched out all the bats and filled the boxes with candy while my daughter drew all the eyes on the bats and sprayed the boxes with the alcohol and shimmer paint mixture. I used the Fancy favor box die to cut out the boxes and I then embossed them with the spider web embossing folder. They were then sprayed with my shimmer paint mixture and the handles were made with a piece of CS 1" x12" and attached with brads. Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by:))

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

Pintrest CASE


Once or twice a month I get together with some friends to stamp, we have so much fun and are always looking forward to the next time we can get together.  This is one of the cards we made at our last get together.  This was a total CASE from pinterest.

I don't really have much to talk about today.  Took the day off work and I haven't gotten anything done.  I have so much to do and I can't seem to figure out where to start.  Anyways I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
