Happy Halloween!

But also Happy Birthday. It's that time of year again, Halloween and my daughter Simone's Birthday on Halloween. This year she'll be 23! How time flies. I always try to combine the two for her Birthday card.

I have seen a lot of Eclipse Cards lately and I love the look. So when I saw the technique challenge on the TGIF  Challenges blog I decided to try my hand at one and I combined my Gorgeous Halloween DSP with a Birthday stamp.

I started with die cutting the word HAPPY from the DSP. I was careful to keep the little inserts from the P's and the A.
I then die cut 5 HAPPY's from Basic Black Cardstock and glued them together with Tombo Multi Purpose Glue. You can also use Stampin' Dimensionals but I like the stacked Cardstock better. And it looks much better when you look at the word from the sides.

Paper Pumpkin!

Hi all, I was playing with my Paper Pumpkin Kit this weekend. I love it!

I always start with sorting out all the little bits and bobs that come with the kit. This kit had a lot of leaves.
I made the cards firsts, super easy to put together. To store or give away the cards I made a Pizza  Box with Cajun Craze cardstock. It's perfect for 4 cards and 4 envelopes. I used the left over leaves on top of the box.

Do you love Paper Pumpkin?

Stampin' Up! comes out with two coordinating Back-to-Back Paper Pumpkin Kits in October and November. Both Christmas Themed. 
Isn't that awesome? 
I can't wait for my kits to arrive.

Do you want these kit to come to your mailbox too?

It's Halloween!

Well, almost. But it is next month! But I want to be prepared so I made my first Halloween card today.
I used the Spooky Night Suite, the Stampset, the Punch and the DSP. I love the DSP, it's awesome.
The pumpkins on my card I cut from one of the sheets of DSP. I love it as an extra bit of detail behind my cat.

Rainbow Maker Card Class

I had a lot of fun making this card.
I'm following another awesome Online Card Class and this time it's all about making rainbows. I'm a bit behind with posting my card as we were going to switch providers last week but didn't with the result that we went offline for 4 days!! Thanks to unlimited data we did have contact with the outside world but coverage in our area is not too great and watching videos didn't work at all. So I had to binge watch all 6 days this week.

But here is my card.  I stamped a small Dragonfly with versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, it's subtle but it's there. I used a stencil and ink to make my rainbow.
