Halloween cards are so much fun to make!  The colors this month really screamed a Halloween theme.  Love the little potion bottles in the Spooky Cat Bundle and the sentiment from Festive Phrases stamp set.

Eclipse Card on Steriods!

Eclipse cards are the hot new technique.  I just decided to step it up a little more by adding snow swirls to the word SNOW!  The subtle shadow of Marina Mist Cardstock makes a great highlight behind the snowstorm of Snowflakes!

Color Fusers September Blog Hop!

Coming up with a card with six different colors in it was quite a challenge, but with fall almost upon on us, the leaves from the Colorful Seasons Framelets solved my dilemma.  The "thanks kindly" from the One Big Meaning stamp set seems to add a lot to any card!  Add a Petal Burst Embossing Folder to Espresso Cardstock and the whole card just fell together!   Make sure you jump onto the rest of the blog hop to see how everyone else incorporated all of these colors into their creations!

Daisy Delight Meets Merry Cafe!

Apple Cider reminds me of fall!  With the weather getting cooler in Wisconsin, thoughts of fall colors pop into my head.  I needed to create a 3 D swap for a retreat next week and this project came to mind.  The Painted Harvest DSP with the Merry Cafe words worked well with the Espresso paper cups and toppers.  The daisy punch in fall colors tied the whole project together!

And of course, what to fill it with?  Either a pumpkin spice latte or apple cider Keurig cup!

Drink up!
 


Christmas in August???

The new Holiday Mini is fabulous with a lot of hidden gems in it.  Some of the sentiments are wonderful because they not only are large, they also have great fonts!  I have made this style of card many times before, but it is an oldie but goodie.  It holds a gift card and takes only a few minutes to make!  It is great for birthdays, weddings, practically any occasion.  The tree punch is discontinued.  If I had the holly punch in the current catalog, that would have been a great addition to this card!  The Christmas paper is Be Merry from our regular catalog and the sentiment is from the Swirly Snowflake Bundle.  Below the photos is a great tutorial for those of you that  are not familiar with this fold!
