Happy Halloween

No card today.  Just a wish for a Happy Halloween.  If you have any treat or trickers, please be safe.  I will be back in a day or two with a new card.

Stampin Up Thanksgiving Card

I fell in love with the "It's A Wrap" set from Stampin' Up when they came out.  So I just had to have the holiday set.

I wasn't feeling good yesterday so I sat down and started playing with them.  I saw a similar card on Splitcoast Stampers and I just had to snag it. 

I also used "Days of Gratitude" on the bottom of the card.

I hope you enjoy the card.

Thanksgiving Treat Bag

I love making treat holder for the various holidays.  I have just begun to look for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  I know I am running late on Halloween.

I ran across this one and I thought the Fall paper would be ideal.  I have gun in them right now but I may change it as Thanksgiving gets closer.

I used my Sizzixlet leaf die for the leaves on the front.  The paper is two sided paper I picked up at my local scrapbook store.  I wish I knew more about it but I didn't save the edge of the paper.  I will look next time I go in the store.

I want to make a few more of these for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The second card

This is the second card.  I made it with a sadden heart.  I have had two very close friends lose a family member this week.  My thoughts and prayers go out to them.  I know both will have a hard time of it for a while.

I used the Stampin' Up Thoughts and Prayer set for this card also.

Apple Tree

I have two cards for you.

The first one is another Fall card.  This is my favorite time of year so I get a lot of stamping done during this time.  I plan on working on Halloween and Thanksgiving cards until the last minute, then I will start on my Christmas cards.

This card will probably be a Thinking of you card.  I like to send cards out to various friends and family several times a month so I try to have 15-20 cards finished for this.

The tree is from the Stampin' Up Thoughts and Prayer set, the apple basket is from Denami Design ( I know you have seen it before.  It is a favorite.), and the Harvest Time stamp is from Papertrey.

Halloween Candy Corn

I love candy corns.  It is one of my favorite fall candies.  I haven't had any yet this year.  I am on a diet so I am trying to stay away from it.

The candy corn stamp is from one of my Stampin' Up sets and the Candy corn words are from Papertrey.

I hope you enjoy this new card.

I am a huge Split Coast Stampers fan.  I surf their website regularly.  I have gotten so many ideas from them.  I love looking through the resource section for not traditional cards.

This is a center step card.  You can find the directions here.  It is a very easy card to make.  When completed it is larger than the normal card so it will require extra postage.

If you have never been to Split Coast Stampers, go over and check it out.

I hope you enjoy the card.

I have been looking at the Friendship Jar Fillers from Papertrey for several years.  I love the set but I didn't want to buy the first set just for the jar.  It dawned on me last week that I had a jar stamp.  I went online and ordered the Fall set immediately.  It came in on Monday.  I have adore the set.

I also picked up the  pine bough die and the Merry & Bright die.  I used the pine bough die here.  I love it also.  You will be seeing it and the Christmas tree one again, I am sure.

It is hard to see here but the bottom pumpkin and acorn is cut out and raised with 3D foam tape.

Batty Halloween Card

Here is another no stamping Halloween card.  I used the Martha Stewart bat punch.  The card is white but I used a brush to dirty up the card some.

I hope you enjoy it.

October Birthday Card

I was short a couple of cards for my October birthdays.  I thought looked like fall, so I will be using it.

I hope you enjoy it.
