Quirky and Fun Jack O’ Lantern with Thoughtful Branches

I love this quirky and fun Jack O’ Lantern card created by fellow demonstrator, Nena Shaw using Thoughtful Branches.

Normally, I’m a fan of a little less fussy aka clean and simple. However, the eclectic look of this card is so very Fall! Fall just has a tendency to be messy with lots of vivid colors and dead leaves and foliage scattered around. Nena’s card captures the essence of the fun of Fall!

 If you would like to see and hear more about this card in better detail (some retired items were used and I talk about that a bit), I have a FB Live video posted below that you can check out!

Spooky Fun Halloween Scene Side Step Stair Card

This card looks complicated; but it isn’t. A side step card is an easy fun fold card to do. All the fantastic stamp set/die bundles that we have at our disposal now really make these fun cards to create!

This awesome card was created by fellow demonstrator, Barbara Phillips. She did a fantastic job of creating a spooky Halloween scene that will delight children and adults alike!

Halloween Scene Creates Spooky Fun!

This picture does not do this card justice! This card was created by fellow demonstrator, Gina Taylor. I love how she popped up the bats and pumpkins. It gives them really spooky little shadows in the right light!

I also love how she did the inside. To see this check out my Afternoon Tea and Card Share FB Live video at the bottom of this post.

Cute Little Mummy With Happy Halloween Wishes!

This cute little mummy card was created by fellow demonstrator, Toni Tessler.  I don’t do much for Halloween but I sure do adore this little mummy. He is so cute! That’s one of the fun things about swaps! Getting lovely cards created with sets you don’t own!

It is difficult to see in this photo – but the little mummy is stamped on our Shimmery White card-stock! This little guy has a Halloween public safety announcement! He wants to remind you to make sure that you and the kiddos are wearing something reflective and sparkly when you are out there doing your tricks and begging for treats!

Coming Soon! A Haunted House Near You!

What an amazing swap card created by fellow demonstrator, Katie Brandt!

I was really tempted by this Ghoulish Grunge set in the holiday catalog. Mostly because I feel that it has so much more potential than just Halloween. I really like multi-purpose stamp sets. I may decide to bite, yet. I have a little time…

Katie’s card reminded me of the Haunted Houses sponsored by the Jaycee’s that I used to frequent when I was much younger. A whole group of us would go. It was a ton of fun. Now, I think I would rather just stamp a card…

I have a couple of FB Live video’s if you would like to check them out at the bottom of this post. One is to explain how to use the stamp-a-ma-jig. Unfortunately, I had some technical difficulties and lost sound before the end – but hopefully – you can get the gist of it!

Candied Eyeballs with Jar of Haunts

Ewww! Candied eyeballs sounds a bit gruesome, doesn’t it? I just had chills! (Okay, it’s probably because I am in the basement where it is chilly…)

This gruesomely fun card was created by fellow demonstrator, Jeanne Moss. Jeanne used the Jar of Haunts stamp set to create this simple, albeit gruesomely WOW, card.

I love how she offset the shelf with the jar. It gives the card great balance!

Thoughtful Branches is still Available!

The Thoughtful Branches Bundle is still available while supplies last. I love this bundle, a lot! Between the stamp set and dies, there is no end to the cards you can create!

This beautiful card was a make and take at my Grand Annual Open Houses in August. It is such an easy card to make – and it is so pretty!

I have a FB Live video posted below if you would like to see how the card came together!

Have Some Spooky Fun!

Hello Stampin’ Friends!

Isn’t this swap card cute? I love it! This card was created by fellow demonstrator, Kivonne Tucker. I adore the tree in the Halloween Scenes Dies and was totally surprised by how tiny it was when this swap came! I don’t know why I thought it was bigger. If you’d like to see a comparison to the tree from Thoughtful Branches – you can check out my afternoon tea and card share video on FB Live video at the bottom of this post.

I love how Kivonne placed everything on the glimmer paper background for a sweet focal point for her card.

Merry and Bright and Cozy Cable Knits

The days are getting shorter (and I am getting slower) and cooler. Soon we will be raking leaves and having bonfires! I love Fall and cozy clothes and wish we could stop the clock right there! However, time keeps marching on and before we know it, Christmas will be here! If you don’t believe me, you can find out how many days are left and watch the seconds tick away right here:

This card was a make and take at my Grand Annual Open Houses. I have to say I giggled a little to myself while creating this card. Here I am trying to create a card that evokes the feeling of a cozy Christmas and all I can think about is ugly Christmas sweaters! I truly hope I captured none of that!

It can be a challenge to come up with simple and easy cards that show a lot of product. That is usually my goal with my make and takes. I like for everyone to experience a good sampling of the new things so they can get an idea if they like something. With so many items to choose from, it can get overwhelming.

The new Cable Knit Dynamic Folder quickly became a new favorite. For another project and a video of how to use the folder, CLICK HERE.

Halloween Night Spooky Fun

Hello Stampin’ Friends!

I confess that I am not a big card maker when it comes to Halloween. I am more of a, “let’s package up some treats,” person when it comes to Halloween. I like decorating little packages of treats for my friends at this time of year. So, this year, I passed on the Halloween sets even though I love the Halloween Scenes Edgelit Dies. I adore that fence! But, like everyone else, I have a budget to stick to and Christmas is, and always has been, my favorite holiday, so I spent the bulk of my budget on Christmas!

However, the little bit I bought for Fall and Halloween will go a long ways, and I will probably have some things leftover. I always do! This year I purchased the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper. I really like that there are several sheets in the package that can be used long after Fall is over. Maybe I will get more of the paper used up this time! I also sprung for the Halloween Night Enamel Dots and Bakers Twine; both items are not truly specific to Halloween so I can use them anytime. That was it. My big splurge! Since most of my friends live so far away from me now…I may have to send them a card instead of giving them treats!

I love that this paper had some imagery and scenes in it. It made it easy to create a “stamp free” card! My sentiment is from the Seasonal Frame Dies, which is on the clearance rack. I consider it a steal. I use this die set frequently. I love the rectangle – it makes a perfect cut out for layering. The sentiments are fun and cover several seasons (thus it is perfectly named, Seasonal Frames!)

I have a Facebook Live video (well, two, actually – a silent version and one with sound) that shows you how easy this stamp free card is to put together. You can check it out here:
