Spooky Cat, Not Spooky at All!

  This is another card we did in my Holiday Card Class this month. I love the cat punch, and check out the new Black Crochet Trim. This is a pretty easy card to put together. We have a Black card base, with a 2 1/2″ piece of the Spooky Night Designer Paper, (don’t forget to add your Vintage Crochet Trim) on the left and a 1 3/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock that was…

Painted Harvest CASE (Copy & share everything)

I received the card on the right from Patty Bennett. She sends cards to all top 15 in her downline for sales. I needed one more card for my Card Class last week and thought, hmmmmm, I’m going to case Patty. I changed a couple of things, but the layout is basically the same. I loved how Patty used the “burlap” stamp, it gives the card a lot of texture without all the bulk. So…

Halloween Window Box

Isn’t this a fun box? This is one of the projects Patty brought for us to do a couple of weeks ago. We used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper for the box, sponged a Metallic Foil Doily black, the scallop is the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (layering Circles Framelits) & the sentiment is from the Spooky Cat stamp set. I have to tell on myself. I totally put adhesive on all the flaps and…

The flowers were stamped on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight for the first color, then Crushed Curry to add the highlights. The inside of the flowers are Early Espresso as well as the sentiment. We fussy cut the…

Merry Cafe

I know you’ve heard me mention that I don’t like coffee, but I’m telling you these stamps like the Merry Cafe (in the Holiday Catalog) & Coffee Cafe (Annual Catalog), I LOVE! I actually love the smell of coffee brewing. Everyone around me drinks coffee, but me. So this newest Coffee stamp is awesome too. Lots of great sentiments covering, Halloween, Fall, Christmas, New Year & Valentines Day. Plus a few images like the leaves,…

The bear is cut out using Watercolor Paper and colored with…
