Lucky Stars Ensemble

2014_10_21IMG_5036 I can thank my lucky stars that my son understands the power of a handmade card.  In fact before heading off to college he wanted some cards to have on hand in case he got a care package or happy mail (defined as a card with something inside).  He has always been trained to write a thank you note so I was glad to create a set of cards for him to have in his dorm in hopes that he will use them when the appropriate time comes.

These cards were created using the left overs from my July  paper pumpkin kit and blackberry bliss cardstock and in.

In case you don’t know what paper pumkin is visit the paper pumpkin website to check it out and contact me if you want to subscribe or purchase a pre-paid subscription.  Once you are signed up you will get your own paper pumpkin kit complete with all the ink, stamps, pre-cut and measured paper and embellishments to create your sweet projects.  Once you subscribe, you will anxiously await for your paper pumpkin kit to show up in your mailbox each month.

Frankly Speaking

2014_10_20IMG_4021  Frankly speaking I think today’s card is one of my favorite Halloween cards of the season.  As an added bonus it is super easy to re-create using the Stampin Up Circle Card Thinlits die #133480 and various sizes of circle punches. Frankie’s hair was styled using the Fringe Scissors #133325. I used the Stampin Up Project Life jounaling pens #135304 to add the details to make Frankenstein come to life.

Sweet File Folder card

2014_10_19IMG_3640 This card is super cute and fun to make using the Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board #133774 from the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  I decorated the file folder with some now retired DSP.  The cupcake was punched using the cupcake builder punch #121807, completed with a cherry on top and then mounted on a doily cut from the now retired pennant die.  The card was folded up and tied closed with a piece of real red ribbon.

Hello Fall

2014_10_18IMG_5358 Today I was feeling the beauty of fall and I brought out my Color me Autumn Designer Series Paper #135820 for the  background of this card. The color me autumn paper is available in the Stampin Up holiday catalog and is an absolutely beautiful display of fall colors.

I added a whisper white fun frame#133727 for the sentiment from the For All Things #135155. I added a collection of fall leaves cut from the now retired leaves die and a sunflower made using the pansy #130698, 7/8″ scallop and 1/2″ circle punches.

Bag Tag

2014_10_17IMG_5332  Today’s post is a cute gift tag I  made for my Halloween workshop using the fabulously fun Tee Hee Hee stamp set #135125 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog. I just used 2 sizes of circles from the circle framelits and then stamped the images onto the white circle.  I added a piece of the white and Tangerine Tango Two Toned Trim #135838 to make the tag hanger to attach to gift bag.2014_10_17IMG_5333

Confetti Celebration

2014_10_16IMG_5019 Today is our brothers 55th birthday so to commemorate the event I made a very simple yet quite effective masculine birthday card. I used a piece of what I call masculine paper from the Confetti Celebration DSP #133692.  I paired the fun paper with the Oh My Goodies #134090 stamp set and cut it with the Deco Labels Collection #130102 and matted it with a basic gray deco label to complete a simple and very masculine card.
