For All Things

The first time I saw this stamp set in the Holiday Catalog, I knew it would become part of my collection.  I love the colors of Fall and pretty much anything associated with Fall.

I made this card for a Holiday Catalog swap I participated in.  There were 17 swappers and each one of us chose a different stamp set to use.  It was so fun to see everyone's creativity!

So without further ado... here's my creation!
So what do you think?  It took me a few tries to get it exactly how I wanted it, but I was pleased with the final results.

Fall Fest Fun

Today's cards are all made with the Fall Fest stamp set and coordinating Fun Fall Framelits Dies.  This set is so adorable and so much fun to stamp with!  Most of them also use the Motley Monsters DSP.  Too cute!
From Millan.Net
The ghosts are cut from our new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and the edges are sponged with Basic Grey.

I really like the paper above with the stacked birds.  The pumpkins above are each stamped in a different color - Tangerine Tango, Tangelo Twist, or Pumpkin Pie.  This stamp set is in photopolymer, so it's a snap to line up the faces on the pumpkins.
From Millan.Net
This last card uses one of the papers from Motley Monsters, but the faces were stamped on it with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Coastal Cabana.  All of these card designs came from a tutorial by Create with Connie & Mary.  You can download the tutorial for free by going HERE.

Until next time...
HAPPY STAMPING!

Weekly Deals

 
I've been without internet connection for three days (other than my iPad)! My computer was taken to the shop this morning, and we finally managed to get my much older computer up and running. Not sure how long it will last, but I'm here for now.  And of course, I had everything set up a certain way on my other computer, so things are going to take longer now...  I can't even get into my cute smileys website because I don't remember my user name!  (Insert crying smiley face here.)

Anyway, hopefully I'll be able to get some pictures posted soon. I'll have to put new ones on this computer, so keep your fingers crossed for me that everything decides to work correctly!

HAPPY STAMPING!

Convention Meeting Projects

 
 You only have until August 28 to take advantage of the Short & Sweet promotion from Stampin' Up!  Purchase the starter kit for only $99 but get $150 in products for that amount - and you get to choose what you want!  Including items from the new Holiday catalog!
 From Millan.Net
Today I'm showing the projects that we made at my upline, Connie Heisey's, gathering at Convention.  Besides getting to see old friends (and new) and catch up, there were three Make-n-Take projects we could do.  Stamping with friends - what's better than that?
 From Millan.Net
Okay, stamping with friends and chocolate,  but we DID have chocolate there too!
From Millan.Net
The first card I made was with the Sweetbriar Rose and Hardwood background stamps.  The flowers were colored with Blendabilities in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.  The Happy Birthday is from the Hey You stamp set.  Don't you just love the ribbon tied at the top and clipped on with the clothespin?
From Millan.Net
This card would be good for so many things.  It uses the Beautiful Bunch stamp set and coordinating Fun Flower Punch along with the new Lovely Lace TIEF.  Oh, and that's Blackberry Bliss ink and coordinating ribbon.  That's such a luscious color!
From Millan.Net
This card is made with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  This is one of the stamp sets we got for free at Convention this year. I love the starburst image in that set!
From Millan.Net
As a special gift for all of us who came, Connie gave us a sampler of the current Designer Series Papers.  That was so sweet!  We had a wonderful time.  I hope you've enjoyed seeing the projects we made.

Until next time...

HAPPY STAMPING!
