Spooky Halloween Card

Here is another Halloween card that I made.  I love the black spider webs that SU put out last year.  I think they go so well with the Woodland Embossing Folder.

This card came together really quick, which is what I needed.  I saw this on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.

Here is the inside of the card.  I used my favorite Michael's stamp again!


Ink - Basic Black
Paper - Whisper White, Black, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps - Among the Branches
Accessories - Woodland Embossing Folder
Embellishments - Spider Doily, Ribbon, Twine

I decided to make some of my favorite treats last night - Tootsie Pop Ghosts using coffee filters.  I make them every year for my daughters to take to work and have some to give away.  This year Jennifer is having her first real birthday party with some friends on Sat., so I made a bunch to put out on the table as well.

Hope everyone is having a great week .  Our weather has been so beautiful here but the rains are coming in fast today.  It could stay like this all year long for me!  I would be a happy camper!

Cookie Cutter Slider Halloween Treat

I have such an adorable treat for you to make for Halloween.  I saw this on Brenda Quintana's blog and fell in love with it!  I had ordered the Cookie Cutter Halloween and Christmas stamp sets along with the punch,  and knew these sliders would be so cute for the folks at the Wellness Center.  Here is a picture of all of them in a basket ready to go.

I made about 40 of them and I was surprised that it didn't take as long as I thought it would.  Check out her video as she does such a great job explaining how to make them.

Here is a closeup of the three designs that I made.  I loved how they turned out.  We have been so busy watching Jennifer a few days this week that I didn't have any time to post.  Later on this week, I'll post some more Halloween cards I made,  My daughter is closing on a house tomorrow, so there is a lot of excitement going on - maybe I'll get my craft room back soon!  It definitely will be quiet here again without the girls and Joey - their Chihuahua!

I submitted this Slider Treat to  Cardz TV Anthing Goes Designer Challenger #2.  Check out all tghe goodies!

Halloween Paper Pumpkin Bags

Well, all I see all over the blogs are goodies for Halloween - and yes, all the Christmas stuff is out as well.  Today, I wanted to show you these cute Halloween Bags.  When my friend was up from Florida, she gave me a bunch of Paper Pumpkin Boxes that she didn't want.  She knows that I always make up some goodies for the Wellness Center for my daughter to take and thought I would like these adorable bags.

I'm not sure which year they were produced, but you can get these little bags in the craft stores and reproduce as many as you need.  Actually, you could buy the burlap and make or own bags, if you had a lot that you wanted to make.  They came together so quick and easy!

I stuffed some goodies inside the bag and wrapped some twine around the bag a few times and tied a bow.  Then I stamped the labels that were in the kit and backed them with some cute DSP.  They even supplied some sequin rope and clothespins to secure to the bag.  It took hardly any time at all to put them together.  I have a bunch of projects I'm working on for the Wellness Center and these will be a great addition.

We hope all that are in the hurricane's path will be safe and sound.  I'm sure the East Coast will get it share of the rain next week.  It has been such a beautiful week, it is hard to believe what is happening down south.  Have a great weekend!

BOO Halloween Card

This is the last card my friend and I made before she left to go home to Florida.  We thought it was so cute.  I had seen it on Pinterest and wanted to try it.


Ink - Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps - Howl-0-ween Treat
Paper - Smokey Grey, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White Thick, Daffodil Yellow, Shimmery Black, Gold
Accessories - Framelits  BOO to You, Woodland Embossing Folder
Embellishment - Rhinestones

I used my Pumpkin Pie CS for my base card.  I ran my Smokey Slate CS through the embossing folder and sliced an opening big enough for my cute little owl to slip behind the tree.

I stamped my images in Pumpkin Pie on my Whisper White CS and used my framelits to cut them out.  I sponged the moon in Pumpkin Pie just to give it some texture and cut it to fit the corner of the card and scattered a few stars around.  We loved how it tuned out.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black.  I love this sentiment as it is big!  Well, October is almost here - time to start decorating for Halloween!  We always loved that holiday, and now that it is Jennifer's birthday it is even better.  Jennifer graduated to the next class - Pre -School and is having so much fun!  It is hard to believe that she is going to be 3 years old!

My air-conditioner has been replaced with the heat as it has turned rainy and cold.  I hope my mums withstand the cold as they turned out so beautiful this year.  I'll have to take some pictures.

Caterpillar Bookmarks

I have a cute little bookmark for you today!  My stamping friend from Florida spent her last day here on Wed. and we had so much fun!  I wanted to make something for her adorable Granddaughter.  I saw this cute bookmark on DIY and knew I wanted to make one for her and Jennifer.

I love how they turned out and they were so easy to make.  This is another good way to use up some scraps.

My friend's Granddaughter loves the color purple, so I mixed some DSP scraps with the new in-color Sweet Sugarplum.  I used my 1 1/4" circle punch and punched out some medium sized cardboard as well.  I glued the paper on each side of the cardboard and then used my tear and tape to put them together.  I cut out some antennas out of paper as well, and glued them on along with some googly eyes.

Here's the one I made for Jennifer.  I think they are so cute!!  I made this one with the circles going up versus the other one with the circles going down.  I am looking forward to some cooler weather this weekend.

Halloween Card

I can't believe it, but I have a Halloween card for you!  Where has the summer gone?  My friend Martha came over yesterday for some craft time, and we decided to make this card I saw on Pinterest but change it up a bit.

I don't have any of the new Halloween stuff from SU yet, so we put this card together with some older stamp sets.


Paper - More Mustard, Black, Whisper White, DSP, Black Shimmery Black
Ink - Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Accessories - Boo to you Framelits, 1" Square Punch, Scalloped Square Punch
Stamp sets - Spooky Bingo Bits, Sentiment from Michaels
Embellishments - Rhinestones, Dimensionals

My first layer is a 1/4" smaller than the base A2 card using some scrap DSP I had.  The black layer measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" with the More Mustard layer 3 1/4" x 3 1/4".  I positioned the squares on the layer and then popped it up with some dimensionals.  I placed my BOO on the bottom and put some rhinestones down the one side.

We thought it turned out pretty good.  Here is a picture of the inside sentiment.

I always liked this sentiment with the spider handing down from it!  I love Halloween!  And now since it is Jennifer's birthday it is really special.

I have another card I would like to share with you.  I have enjoyed blogging with PJ's Projects and really liked this card she had posted awhile back.

We were away for awhile as Joe's sister's cancer has returned and spent some time with her.  I was so surprised when we returned, and I found this card among the huge stack of mail.  I thought it was so sweet of her to send it to me,

Patriotic Cards

Since this weekend is Labor Day, I decided to make some more patriotic cards.  I wanted to use one of my new stamp set I had just received and thought this would be great card to try the die out.

This card came together pretty quick until it came to producing the letters!


Paper - Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Alphabet Punch Outs
Ink - Pacific Point, Real Red
Accessories - Sunshine Wishes Die, Star embossing folder, Dazzling Diamonds, Rhinestone

My basic card is an A2, with the first layer in Brilliant Blue 4 x 5 1/4".  My second layer in Whisper White is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8".  I then ran this through my embossing folder.  I die cut 1 design in each color.  I adhered my blue cutout first.  Then I cut the stems off the other two and placed them on either side.

I don't have any letter die cuts and didn't know what to use.  When I was asking the girls they came up with the packages of alphabet punch outs they have used for school projects!  Of course, I couldn't find solid color ones, but did find white ones.  I used my SU markers to color them and we were all set.  I didn't have the Brilliant Blue marker, but the Pacific Point one matched fine!  For the white letter, I used my 2-way glue pen with the dazzling diamonds.  I was happy how they turnd out!

Well, everyone in the Pansy Patch hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
