Halloween Wreath

Happy Halloween!
Last year I found a couple foam wreaths in the $1 section of Target and used one of them to create this really quick wreath inspired by Kirsteen Gill.  It is wrapped with some of our 1 1/4" burlap ribbon and some leftover ribbon from last year's Sale-a-bration.

Peace on Earth

We have been seeing a few of these floating around in the air lately (and we sure don't want to see any more until harvest is completed!). 
I layered a couple Festive Flurry framelit cutouts with dimensionals and added an In Color boutique detail to the middle.

Another Thank You

I have another sample of a Painter's Tape technique card for you today using the Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set and the Hello Lovely set.  Since this card doesn't have any embellishments on it, it would be an easy one to mail.

Hello Lovely

The card I have for you today is a fairly quick and easy one to put together.  For the stamped background images, I placed all three stamps on one block and lined them up in a row.  Then, I just stamped multiple times to get my pattern.

Fall into Fall

We have a new challenge starting today at Late Night Stampers - fall themed projects.  You can see the rest of the design team's samples and play along with us right here.

I made and envelope from the napkin holders in the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit and used a few other pieces from that set on the card as well.

There must have been too many things going on on this card for the camera to focus on it, LOL!  I used the painter's tape technique on the background as well as behind the sentiment and behind the leaves I stamped and cut out.

Holly Jolly Christmas

I saw a cute card that Mary Fish had created using a layer of card stock with a Chalk Talk label cut out of the middle  and wanted to play with that idea a little bit.  The result is the card below that uses the Season of Style designer series paper and the Tags 4 You stamp set.

Baby Feet

As I prepare for a craft show coming up, I discovered I didn't have too many baby cards in my stash so I put together these simple ones.  The sentiment is from God's Blessings which is retired, but I love the sayings in it so plan to keep it around.

I used a strip of Quatrefancy specialty paper for the baby girl card and Winter Frost specialty paper for the baby boy one.
