Gently Falling Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for my husband's birthday today.  I used the SU Gently Falling stamp set.  I can't resist fall leaves.  This is my favorite season of the year with all the beautiful colors in nature.  I hope you enjoy looking. 

Recipe:  Textured Impressions Woodgrain folder, early espresso and crumb cake cardstock, Gently Falling and A Word For You stamps, more mustard, cajun craze and old olive ink pads.  I used a little hemp anda button from the naturals collection in crumb cake.

I can not take credit for this design.  I was inspired by Kay Koltoff, a fellow SU demonstrator.  You can find her beautiful work at stampingtoshare.com.

Artiste Coffin Halloween Treat boxes

I saw these cute Halloween coffin treat boxes cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge and just had to make some of my own.  Hope you enjoy them. 

The coffins are cut at 5" out of SU DSP from the Howlstooth & Scaringbone paper pack and the Bold Brights DSP paper stack.  Stamps sets used are  Mixed Medley (Hostess set) and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I also used lucky limeade 1/4" stitched ribbon.  In addition, I used a bit of baker's twine from the Ghoulish Ghouls bundle.  I hope the recipients will be very happy to receive them.  

Mixed Medley Ghoulish Halloween Treat Bags

I made treat bags for my grandchildren for their Halloween parties.  Here are some quick and easy bags.  I made 50 bags in just a couple of hours with the help of my eight-year-old granddaughter.  Hope you enjoy and get some inspiration.

Recipe: clear cello bags, black staz-on ink, Mixed Medley stamp set, Googly Ghouls stamp set, tangerine tango cardstock, confetti white cardstock, 3/4" circle punch, 11/4" scallop punch, Seasonal Sayings stamp set, Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP, classic black ink pad, tangerine tango classic ink pad, lucky limeade ink pad.

Yummy Father's Day card Color Challenge

Today I have a card I made for my husband for Father's Day and MCTs Throwback Thursday Challenge.  The challenge was a color challenge to use chocolate brown, orange, green and blue.  Here is what I came up with.  I hope you enjoy looking.
 The patterned paper is from the Cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge.  Although you can't really tell it in the photo, the brown has script writing in it. 

Products used:  Stampin' Up (SU) cardstock in Tangerine Tango, all patterned paper printed from Yummy Cricut Imagine cartridge, Imagine stock shape for the sentiment, MCTs My Favorite Sayings and More Gift Card Sentiments stamp sets, Pink By Design's Sandy Toes stamp set, Stampin' Up Confetti stamp set (this was used for the stamped background on the base of the card), SU Tangerine Tango embossing powder and Early Espresso ink.  The shells are stickers from K & Company.

Love You a Latte 50th Birthday

Thought I would share my 50th Birthday layout with you.  It was a great time and I had so much fun creating this layout with my little "Starbucks" diecut.  The font is from Cindy Loo (I think).  It is a really fun font to use.  I used Cutmates paper to cut out the top layer as I find it works much better for those detailed cuts than any other paper on the market.  I used the Love You a Latte Cricut lite cartridge to cut the cup sized to fit a sticker I had been given from Starbucks.  The journaling box is from a discontinued SU paper pack and the ribbon used is also discontinued.  Hope you enjoy looking.
