Paper Pumpkin October 2015

Happy, happy Friday to all of you!

Here is another Paper Pumpkin set that I made last week.  Everything is included with the kits and you can grab and go with your little red box!

For this kit, I just followed the directions and had some nice cards ready to share when I need them!!




The bottom one was shown to be stamped with "Congrats", but I decided to make those into thank you cards instead.

Now off to finish this garage sale!  Mary

Paper Pumpkin March 2016

Well, I'm behind on making my Paper Pumpkin kits, but you know what, when I made some cards using the March 2016 kit, it was fun to not really have to "think" about what to do and just create.  I do belong to a Facebook Group for Paper Pumpkin subscribers and I gleam a lot of neat ideas from there too!  Here are two cards that I made last week.  The first one was a example that came with the kit.


The second one, is one I found on the Facebook group, very simple, easy and should not require any extra postage either, WIN-WIN!!


You could easily make them into notecards too, if you didn't want a full-sized card.

Thanks and I'll see you again on Friday!  Mary

Swirly Scribbles Snowman

Hello and good Monday morning to all of you!  I hope you had a wonderful week last week, I was busy pricing items for a upcoming garage sale, hope we can sell off some of our "treasures".

While surfing on Pinterest, I've seen many Snowman made with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, so I had to give it a try.  I did use some of my retired DSP, but you could stamp a background if you wanted too.  Thanks to whomever came up with this cute card.


I used the Snow Friends Framelits and Snow Place stamp set to add the details that make the scribbles look like a snowman!  I also used Thick Whisper White for the card base and ink colors are Real Red and Black Memento.  The carrot nose was just a hand-cut scrap of Pumpkin Pie card stock.

Very easy and simple to do, oh, I also used just tiny dots of Tombow Green Glue.  You can see it in the picture put I did put some Wink of Stella on all the swirls.

Thanks for coming to see me!  Mary

Cookie Cutter Christmas, Take Two

Hello and I hope your week was a great one, mine was very busy, can't wait to get back into the craft room to play and relax.

Here is my second Christmas card that I made using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and Cookie Cutter Builder punch, which is now available!


As you can see, I remember to use my embossing folder.  This little guy came out so cute!  This time I color in the antlers and for the legs I used the Gingerbread Man for the reindeer legs.  I made a small bow with some Linen Thread and attached it with a Glue Dot.  The embossing folder is Lucky Stars, which is in the Annual Catalog.  Card stock I used was Very Vanilla for the card base, Real Red and Crumb Cake.  The DSP is retired from last year.  The inks I used where, Real Red, Early Espresso and Black Memento.  I used a Chalk Marker for the white part above the hooves.  I also added a few Basic Rhinestones.

Another fun card to make!  Mary

Cookie Cutter Christmas

Well I'm off to a snail's pace in that I've started making my Christmas cards today!  Yes, I know, in August, Mary, PLEASE!!!  Well, last year I was making my cards in December and I don't like feeling rushed when I'm making them, that is because I don't make 30 of one card, I like to switch it up and use different stamps and punches.

The one I'm sharing today will be available starting September 1st, 2016 from the new Holiday Catalog.  This stamp set and punch are so darn cute and there are so many things you can use these cute images for, think cards, tags, treat decorations!

Here is my first try with this stamp set, Cookie Cutter Christmas and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.


Now after I finished making this card, I realized that I had wanted to emboss the card front, but maybe I can do that the next time I make one!  The DSP behind the reindeer is retired because I'm trying to use up some of my older DSP before I buy any new.  

Card stock is Real Red, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake
Ink is Real Red, Black Memento and Early Espresso
Sentiment is from the same stamp set

Well this is my share for today, come back Friday and see another Christmas card!!  Mary
