Little Pumpkin

Just look at this ADORABLE pumpkin! Wouldn’t it be fun to give this out as treats to your children, to your friends, or your officemates? Fill them up with your favorite candy or eraser or chocolate kisses… and voila! You have an instant treat!

I used Stampin' Up cardstock in pumpkin pie and chocolate chip; stamped the green leaf from Denami Design (it's an old stamp from years ago); and added silver brads to hold my pumpkin in place. No adhesive required. If you want to purchase a kit that makes 10 pumpkins, please feel free to email me.

When I saw this ice skater girl from A Muse Stamp, I had to have this! LOL! There are not too many cute girl skater rubber stamps out there..... And besides, my oldest daughter skates, so this card is for her.... This is the first time I used SU's Dazzling Diamonds... I have to admit, I must have poured a lot on that dress because it sparkles like crazy! Just right though, for a figure skater on ice!

So Many Scallops

Back in June, when Patty Bennett (see her blog here) gave me a Prints Pack Designer Series paper, I created my first set of 3" by 6" cards. And you remember the So Many Scallops set from last February's Sale-a-bration? I used the "So Sweet of You" and "Happy Birthday" stamps. I especially loved how the Real Red came out - it looks so vibrant and festive!

Halloween Accordion Card

Oh the cards I can make with Stampin' Up's BATTY UP FOR YOU stamps! Hi, you are looking at my version of a Handmade Accordion Card for Halloween. When folded, this card measures 3" by 6"; and when spread out, it measures 3" by 11" - lots of room for you to add messages/sentiments or even tiny pictures everywhere! The main cardstock is Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie. The designer series papers (DSP) are from SU's Ghostly Greetings set. The belly band (the one used to close the card) is made from Stampin' Up Basic Black cardstock and was punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. The scallop flower is also Pumpkin Pie layed with Basic Black; used 2 different SU circle punches. The stamped bat is from SU's Batty For You while the sentiment "Happy Boo To You" is from SU's retired BOOGLIE EYES. Again, this card measure size 3” by 6” when folded

Halloween Lollipop Covers

Hi, you are looking at my version of 10 Handmade Halloween Lollipop Covers. Each fabulous cover holds a standard size flat lollipop and measures approximately 3" by 3". I used Stampin' Up cardstock in Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Basic Black. The scalloped center image is from Stampin' Up's BATTY FOR YOU with the pumpkin and the words "You Light Up The Place with that Smile on your Face" around it. I used 4 different SU punches: the scallop circle, the 1 3/8" circle, the 1/1/4" circle, and the slit punch. Inside the lollipop cover, I stamped "Happy Boo To You" from SU's retired Booglie Eyes set.

Cupcake Thank you

Thank you cards. I used the "Simple Birthday Thanks" SU Stamp for this lovely thank you notes to fill in. Used "Chocolate Chip", "Whisper White" and "Pretty in Pink" paper as well as good quality pink rhinestones to sprinkle-stud the cupcake. The cherry top (colored with SU watercolor pencil and blender pens) was glazed with crystal effects glue to give that fresh look too.

Frankenstein Cards

ARE YOU READY FOR HALLOWEEN?!? Hi! This is my version of the ever popular Frankenstein monster! You are looking at a LOT of 4 Handmade Greeting Cards. I used Stampin' Up Old Olive for the face, DCWV cardstock in Purple for the hair, and SU Basic Black and Whisper White for the eyes. I also used SU's 1 inch circle punch. The bolts hanging out from Frankie's head were cut by me from Basic Black cardstock. The eyelids and nose are attached with foam tape so the card got a 3-D effect!
In accordance with Stampin’ Up’s Angel Policy, I have used the appropriate stamp as signature on the back of the cards.

Mummy Cards

Hi! This is my version of the Mummy ! You are looking at a LOT of 4 Handmade Greeting Cards. I used Stampin' Up Whisper White for the body of the card, hand-shredded whisper white cardstock and smudged them with Close to Cocoa ink, and applied double sided tape to make the strips look like a mummy! I purposedly made the strips uneven to make this mummy look worn and old.... I also used SU's 1 inch circle punch for the eyes, in whisper white and basic black!

The background paper is pieced and carefully balanced in color and shapes! The stamped images are stamps by Stampin Up. These cards are so Adorable it can be a nice give away for friends, simply as a gift or just because cards!! The inside of the card is blank where you may write any sentiments you may wish.
