Mingle All the Way

Hi Everyone,
     I thought I would post one last Halloween sample in honor of the holiday tomorrow.  I used this sample as an idea and then made some changes: SuNN Stampin'.  It's really pretty easy to color in the letters on the stamps from the Mingle All the Way set using the Stampin' Write Markers.  I used the journaling end to be able to stay in the lines better.  The tiny bats and ghosts come from the Holiday Home set, so many fun stamps in that set!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Mingle All the Way, Holiday Home
Ink: Memento Black, Whisper White Craft Ink
Card Stock: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Accessories: Stampin' Write Marker in Pumpkin Pie, 3/4" Chevron Ribbon in Pumpkin Pie

Making Spirits Bright

Hi Everyone,

     The Making Spirits Bright set is such fun.  I love that they included a birthday stamp in there too.  I cased this card from: Stamp With Peggy.  I did make a few paper and color changes but it is the same layout.  I did use our Stampin' Write Markers for this card, but you could easily substitute Blendabilities. 
Supplies Used:
Stamps Set: Making Spirits Bright
Ink: Memento Black, Blackberry Bliss
Card Stock: Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, Park Lane DSP
Accessories: Circle Framelits, 3/8" Stitched Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss, Stampin' Write Markers in Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist and Marina Mist

Holiday Home

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted in a bit, life has been crazy, as usual.  I have been stamping however and have a lot of great cards to share with you.  Lately I seem to be casing a lot of cards.  Pinterest just draws me in and I find such great samples that I have to try and make them myself.  Today's card comes from: Dawn's Stamping Thoughts.  I visit her blog often, she has such great projects and often has a video to help you recreate them.  I really did not change anything from her sample and the card is much easier to make than it looks.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Holiday Home, White Christmas
Ink: Memento Black, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango
Card Stock: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Accessories: Homemade Holiday Framelits, 2"Circle Punch, Blendabilities in Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight, Word Window Punch

Bright & Beautiful

Hi Everyone,

     Bright & Beautiful was a stamp set that I was really on the fence about getting, but I really love it now that I have it.  I've already posted a few samples with it and here is another.  This time I didnt even use the Big Shot.  This is a really simple card that comes together quickly.  The hardest part is tying the darn bow!  I will never get the hang of bows, no matter how much I seem to practice.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Bright & Beautiful
Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Accessories: 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler

Fall Fest

Hi Everyone,
     The Fall Fest set is so cute with the pumpkin faces,  I am a sucker for any set that has a pumpkin, but for this card I decided to leave off the faces.  I stamped the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie and then used a dauber to sponge on some Cajun Craze around the bottom and edges and stamped back over the pumpkin to give it some more dimension.  This is so easy to do with the photopolymer sets since you can see right where you are stamping.  The sentiment is stamped with the Good Greeting set, which you can earn free by having an order or class totaling $300 or more before shipping and handling and tax.  It's only being offered through the end of this month so please don't wait if it something you want.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Fall Fest, Good Greetings
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Garden Green
Card Stock: Early Espresso,  Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Fun Fall Framelits, 1/4" Cotton Ribbon in Early Espresso

Wondrous Wreath

Hi Everyone,
    Today I cased a great card from a fellow demonstrator named Sandra Hanedanian.  I couldn't find a copy of the card on her blog, but this is the sample I found on Pinterest.  This card shows just how versatile the Wondrous Wreath set can be.  You can use it for a lot more than just Christmas.  The door was made using the Window Framelits.  You just put the card stock in and crank the big shot until it makes the beginning cut and then crank it back so you have a straight line for the 2nd half.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Wondrous Wreath, Holiday Home, Good Greetings, Hardwood
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Smokey Slate, Memento Black
Card Stock: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Accessories: Window Framelits, Wonderful Wreath Framelits, 1/2" Circle Punch, Designer Buttons, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder

For All Things

Hi Everyone,

Happy World Cardmaking Day! It's a coolish, rainy day here so I should have some time to stamp, I hope you all find some time to stamp today too.  I used the For All Things stamp set for this card.  It's really a pretty simple card to make and you don't even need a big shot.  I love adding the wood elements; they color so nicely with the blendabilities.
