I don't make many Halloween cards, but when I bought the Cookie Cutter Bundle, I also bought the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp. I thought those little monsters would work perfectly with my other two Halloween Stamps, Best of Halloween and Sweet Hauntings. I used a center step card to allow me to use more monsters.I loved making this card! I hope you like it too! Here is the list of supplies I used.
It has been a rough few weeks with me not posting regularly or holding classes. I am sure there will still be bumps in the road, but my parents are safe in assisted living. The facility is on the same road as I live on and the first night they spent there my dad showed up at my door bright and early. We took him back and they didn't even know he was gone. My dad is a retired Army Green Beret and a bit sneaky. After this first week, they seem to be settling into a routine. I am trying to catch up and hopefully, I will be able to get back to offering classes. I spent the weekend making Sunflower Treats like the one that my friend Sandy had given me last November. I modified the box to make it a faster project and use of some of my old retired ribbons. They are so perfect for a birthday party I will be going to in October. I love my Stampin' Up trimmer but sometimes you just need to use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Here is my treat box.

It seems a bit early for Christmas cards, but I just had to share this card made with a new stamp set that is going to be in the Holiday Catalog.I didn't even put a saying on the front because I think everyone will know this is a Christmas card! I did stamp Merry Christmas Wishes on the inside. I hope everyone has gotten their Holiday Catalog by now. They were mailed earlier this month! If not please let me know so I can get it to you asap.
Here is the list of supplies used on this card.
It is time for Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #285. The optional technique was embossing. They didn't say what kind of embossing so I might have over done it again. Here is my card!
It is so fabulous to be at home! I feel like I haven't posted in forever! I had another card to share with you that I had made the night before I left. I was not able to share after my iPad caught some uncurable disease while hanging out with me in my mom's hospital room. Really, who knew that dropping it on the floor would create such a disaster? Anyway, here is the card I had to share, better late than never I guess. I am pretty sure that the red foil paper is retired, but as a paper hoarder I bought lots when it was on sale. I love it for Christmas cards, it's mine and I am going to use it!
Here are the details for this shiny card:
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Emerald Envy, folded in half.
- The Real Red layer is 4 x 5-1/4, the white layer is 3-3/4 x 5 embossed with Softly Falling
- The ornament was cut out with Emerald Envy and Gold Glimmer paper using Delicate Ornament Thinlits.
- The pine branches were cut from the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies using Emerald Envy
- The Joy and bow were cut using my fabulous Red Foil paper.
I was so exited when my box of new Holiday goodies arrived Wednesday afternoon! I played with a few that night and had plans for so much more on Thursday. I woke up to the sound of a ringing phone on Thursday. My mom was headed to the hospital by ambulance. I took the first flight out and arrived in Fayetteville that evening! She is going to be ok, but I am not sure about me. I left behind all my goodies and now my paper pumpkin arrived today! My husband sent me this picture. I wonder what is inside?
I am going to go to Pinterest and peek! Now here is a sneak peek of my Halloween box! I have been trying to post since Thursday. I am sorry for the delay! Look closely at the supply items I used to see more of the items that will be in the holiday catalog.
