Holiday Cheer card / cts #97

  It's already the end my Wednesday. I hope everyone is,having a great week. I haven't posted anything new since Friday and I do apologize for that. My week has been hectic. I am up too my ears in Halloween treats!!!!

I stepped away from all the Halloween craziness for a moment to create something for this week's CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

I had so much fun doing this one.

Look at those fun tree's. I love this set and the tree punch!!! 

Reminder: festival of trees stamp set and tree punch are available in a bundle which means you save 15%. 

...and that glimmer paper...I'm going to need more. I'm sure I'll be using a ton of that stuff.

Here's the inspiration sketch don't forget to play along. Just click the link above.

"Little Monsters" card project life / PCCCS115 / CTD315

Happy Thursday everyone,

Today, I created this cute card using the Season Snapshot Project Life card collection. This is my very first collection from Stampin' Up!'s Project Life and I have to say soon as I opened the kit I knew I'd love it! I guess you could call it love at first sight! :0P

This card was made for 2 challenges: The Color Throwdown and The Paper Craft Crew both fun, creative and exciting challenges.

Here's my card:

O0o0ohh aren't those little monsters adorable!!! They remind me of my many niece's and nephew's. 

Of course Project Life is meant to go into an album but, who cares about rules in creativity? If you have yet to get you some of these collections I so0o0 recommend that you do.

" A Little Kindness" card / Kinda Eclectic and Hardwood

The rain finally stopped and the sun is shinning!!! Great way to start another busy week. Being stuck indoors all weekend because of the weather made me so thankful I am a paper crafter.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I created another card using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. I have to tell ya' this set is amazing everything in it goes so great together and also great paired with other sets. Here I used with the Hardwood background stamp.

 *I might as well apologize now because you will be seeing me use both sets quite often!

Halloween Top Note treat holder / September Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Hey everyone!! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!! Here in Hawaii we have lots of rain and dark skies perfect crafting weather (any weather is perfect crafting weather).

Here I created another September Paper Pumpkin alternative. This time a treat holder. If you are not currently subscribed to My Paper Pumpkin JOIN NOW . Remember anyone who subscribes to my paper pumpkin will receive a special thank you !!! EVERY MONTH you are subscribed
exclusive to only my subscribers and different from my normal thank you!

Here's what I did:

Taking one of the burlap bags cut it open to only be left with the dots of stripes side. Run that piece on the top note die through your big shot ( burlap will not cover entire dies, just center it. Trim frayed edges. 

With a pumkin pie piece of CS run that on the top note die. 

On your simply scored board place your pumpkin pie die cut ( long end on top ). Sore at 2" and 2 1/2". 

Place sticky strip on you burlap piece to adhere to die cut. 

With a 8 1/2" × 1/2"  pumpkin pie strip wrap around to create a belly band. 

To decorate I used die cuts from kit to stamp "boo" on the inside (trimmed to fit). Used my decorative label punch to punch out stripped die cut and a very vanilla die cut. Adhere together to create tag. Use a clothes pin and some sequence to pin tag to belly band.

Kinda Eclectic + Four Feathers card / ctd314

Hey everyone! It's Friday!!! Yay!!! Well usually on Friday I post a "Flashback Friday" but I am anticipating an eventful weekend..we have tropical storm ana due over the weekend there's always lots of prep for those so I'm a little behind in my projects and cards :0p. On a good note if the storm comes, I'll be stuck inside with my craft's and will have loads of time to catch up Lol.

Anyway I decided to make my COLOR Throwdown challenge card (you all know I love challenges) with my new goodies I received on Wednesday.

I do apologize for the lighting. The sky was not very bright today.

Here's something different I did. You see those 3 strands of backers twine along the bottom? They are actually whisper white bakers twine dyed with ink pad. Also used in silver buttons. 

This is just a closer look at that dimensions. I think these stamp sets are amazing together.
