Great Pumpkin Week 5

Looking through my stash today I came across this stamp set that I found a couple years ago online. I bought it because of the black cat that looked just our Inky did. Hope you enjoy the whimsy.

Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Wk 4

In addition to our large monthly Demo meeting with my upline and grandmother upline, I get together once a month with a group that includes my upline and sideline Demo's. Our goal is to develope our stamping skills and techniques. Half of the group provides a M&T and the other half provides snacks. This month I am in the M&T group and the card below is my project. I am also going to include it in Terry's Blog Hop for the week. 

As you may have noticed, I am hooked on the Champagne Glimmer and the Howlstooth and Scaringbone papers. They just go together.

Festival of Prints

I like the little DSP stack of Festival of Prints. The combinations are wonderful for the holidays and they work for day to day cards as well.

The colors remind me of Paris and since I had a little Paris stamp I added it to the project. The dots on the ribbon are white and the base of the DSP is vanilla, this just didn't sit right with me, so I reversed the ribbon and like how it turned out.

 I saw a set of tools for paper crafting that are like the tools I use for making fondant flowers so I had to buy them. I like how using a rolling motion on the paper gives it added dimension and interest. I even had to cut around some of the petals. Hope you enjoy.

Hope you like this weeks entry and that you will play along.

I think Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry work well together. Here are a couple of cards I made last night. Now that the Olympics are over I have a bit more crafting time.

The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Wk 2

My upline grandmother, Terry Blais, is doing a 13 week blog hop and I thought I would play along this week. I don't have many Halloween stamps, but I do have Frightening Feline and decided to bring her out to play. I stamped her, put the googlie eyes on, and then decided to use a framelit. It worked just fine and added the extra interest of flattening the whites of the eyes. They don't wiggle anymore but they have a cute little bug to them that I hope you can see in picture 2.

I am now going to try my hand at linking to Terry's blog. If it works you will be able to see more entries. If not, I will be giving Terry a call and will find out how to fix it.

Thanks for looking.

Anniversary Card

I like the Everything Eleanor set and thought it would make a nice anniversary card for my husband. We will celebrate our 43rd anniversary later this month.
I puffed up the hearts and the LOVE to add some additional dimension to the card. 
I think my DH will like it.
