Look Who's Turning 10!

Hello Everyone!
Today I'd like to share a quick
birthday card I made for my Granddaughter, Holly. 
I can't believe she's 10!
 I embossed the letters with Clear Embossing Powder to darken them a bit and give a little shine.

Doesn't this Foil Frenzy in Berry Burst speak volumes of shinny cheer?  I love it!

Link to video if viewing via email:


Cardstock Base:  9 1/2" X 3".  Score At: 1 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 1/4", 7 1/2", 8 5/8".
3 DSP Panels:  2 7/8" X 1 1/16"
Use 3/4" circle punch for the holes. On the 8 5/8" section, cut away a little bit so the punch will reach into the next section.  on the 7 1/2" section, line entire piece up on the 3" side, move it over to the 1 1/2" mark, then poke a hole to find the center.  Bring first or top section to overlap the 7 1/2" section, (it will not lay flat) line it up by using the bottom score line, insert circle punch, using the mark made for center, center the punch and punch out both holes.

I would like to thank Rachel Tessman for this cute idea!

Just Use the Paper!

Hi Everyone!
Today I'd like to share with you how easy and fun it is to create a card when you use the
Spooky Cat Designer Series Paper.

For these 2 cards, I've used elements from the paper as my inspiration!
For the Owl Card, the spooky tree and big moon are a 3" X 3" section of the paper.  So on this one sheet of paper, you get 16 backgrounds!
All I had to do was stamp the owl and sentiment, then color his beak and talons with a Pumpkin Pie marker.  I did use our Black Archival ink pad so I could achieve the crisp, dark image.
For the cat, I punched her out using the new Cat Punch and Spooky Cat stamp set. 
(These are offered  in a bundle: the Spooky Cat stamp set and Cat Punch, which saves you 10% when you buy them together).
 Once again, I've simply cut the jack-o-lanterns,  her hat and scarf from the same pack of DSP.
I've done some dimensional layering on both:
I used a sponge dauber and our White Craft ink around the edges of the cat.  I could have also simply punched the cat out directly from the DSP.  I only punched her from black cardstock because I wanted her facing this way.


Card Base: 5 1/2" X 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/4", and folded in half.

Pumpkin Pie Embossed Layer ( Woodlands Embossing Folder) 4 " X 5 1/4"

Black Layer: 3 1/4" X 3 1/4"

Spooky Night DSP (2): 3" X  3" Cut 1/4" off of each side for the top one.


Card Base:  5 1/2" X 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4", and folded in half.

DSP Layer:  4 " X 5 1/4"

Black Layer:  3 1/4" X 3 1/4"

Spooky Night DSP:   3" X  3"

Thank you for visiting!
Have a great day!
