Trick or Treat!

What little kid wouldn't love to get this little treat when they are trick or treating!  The Here's to Cheers stamp set take some gift giving to a new level with minimum effort!  These take a few minutes to make, but are super cute!  Vary the theme to fit any occasions - Christmas, birthday parties, anniversaries, showers....

We made an adorable Christmas version of this with the Candy Cane Lane Suite at my October Retreat.

These toppers even have a cute message inside!  Notice how I conveniently placed a black bat over the word Christmas to make the stamp fit the season!

Alternative Paisleys

How elegant is this?  Use a small Paisley image over and over to create a border.  Using the same sentiment as last week and the border design from the Detailed Santa Thinlets an elegant card emerges!


Can you believe these are all of the same materials we used in last week's card?

Wait a minute!  What is that bead in the middle of the border?  Looks like a pearl, but it isn't the color of a pearl!  Why not?  It is a pearl embossed with copper embossing powder!

Pretty Paisley

The Paisley Bundle is deceptive!  It makes a lot more than paisley prints on cards. Although this card uses the Paisley as it was designed to be used, next week's card will show you how to use it as a border.  It also makes cute animals, figures and pumpkins.  Your imagination can run wild with this set.  The color combo for November was Espresso, Artichoke, Curry, Cajun and Eggplant.  Although I thought this would be a hard combo to use, I found the colors were very easy to combine!


Add a little silver for an accent and you have an elegant card to give for Thankgiving!

Halloween Funky Brick Wall Card

I love color combo of Pumpkin, Black, Grey and Plum!  This Halloween card uses all four to create a scene on top of a brick wall that opens!


The Halloween Night Designer's Series Paper makes a great background and brick wall.  The pop of color of the Pumpkin and Plum add just enough interest!  Check out the TAMS directions  below as well as the list of supplies needed to make this great Halloween card!
