Happy Halloween!

Just popped in to wish everyone a happy Halloween!

This is the first year none of my kids are trick-or-treating...kinda sad, yet kinda glad!

Have a safe one!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Scallop Circle Punch Santas

I was cruising through some blogs at work (shhh, don't tell anyone) and I came across Tanya Boser's blog. She has a tutorial on how to make the cutest little Santas using the Scallop Circle punch! So, after supper I made some for my Stamping Extravaganza guests this weekend. Aren't they cute?

You can find her tutorial here

Until next time, happy stamping!

All Day Stamping

Today was a really fun day! I went to my friend, Laura's house and we, along with my other friend Corina, completed 30 cards from half a scrappin kit! The picture below does not do justice to what we actually created. And we all came up with different ideas, which was fun!

The ingredients used for these cards were: Half of the 'I Wish' scrappin kit, whisper white, chocolate chip, old olive and real red cardstock, chocolate chip classic ink, Heard from the Heart and Many Merry Messages stamp sets.

If you would like further details, such as measurements, etc, email me and I will send you the template I used.

Until next time, happy stamping!

Finally Friday!

It has been a short week but a long one! Isn't that the way it usually goes? I'm happy it's Friday because I have the day off! Yay! Now I can finish prepping for the stamping extravaganza I am hosting.

Last week my friend, Corina, came over for Technique Tuesday. I taught her all the ins and outs of embossing!

We used the stamp set Holy Triptych. The card to the left is embossed in black and then we coloured her in with SU markers.

This card is really blurry, I apologize for that. We stamped the image with white craft ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. It looks very regal in real life.

Thanks for look and until next time, happy stamping!

Halloween Cards!

I have been participating in some weekly challenges and I have received some awesome cards! The first challenge was to make a card that wasn't the regular 4.25 x 5.5. The card below was sent to me by Debbie. I think it is really cute!

The next challenge was the Wheely card challenge. This was sent to me by Kim. She also did some embossing and flocking! So cool!

This final card is one I cased from someone on Splitcoast for a class I was teaching at work. It uses the Eat, Drink and Be Scary stamp set from the mini. It's so cute!
Recipe: Eat, Drink and Be Scary ss, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White and Old Olive cardstock, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie ink, black brad, 1 1/4 circle punch, pop dot

Until next time, happy stamping!
