Thanks for stopping by to check out challenge #70 at Stamp, Ink, Paper!!

I decided to go right down the center....

Green on the broom handle, ribbon along the right side of the layer with the image, and the theme is Halloween.  Turns out, I also went diagonally from top right to bottom left, too.  :)

The base is Baked Brown Sugar, the dsp is from my stash, the image and sentiment are from "If the Boom Fits" which is from last year's SU holiday catty.

The ruffled ribbon is a retired Baked Brown Sugar favorite. The sequins are from the Autumn Harvest Mix by Pretty Pink Posh.

Make it a great day!!  
Thanks again for stopping by.

OSAT Blog Hop - Oh My Pumpkins and Pie

Hello there!!  And thanks for hopping thru to my spot in this month's hop. I was asked by Andrea last night if I would jump in with some goodies, due to a few peeps that were unable to hop this month.

Due to the late notice, I had to think pretty quick, and so this is what I came up with.  :)

I probably should have warned you..... it is petty colorful!!  lol  

The card base is Pool Party. I embossed a piece of white cardstock in my birch tree embossing folder after running my Pool Party ink pad on to the folder so it would color the sky for me as I embossed.
The pumpkins and the sentiment are from a Unity set called Thanks, Thanks & Thanks.  The leaves are cut out with an Impression Obsession die, as is the little wheelbarrow. 

My little pumpkin treat holder is made using the Curvy Keepsake die. I embossed it using the birch tree folder as well.  I fussy cut another couple of pumpkins, colored them and looped some twine behind them, then attached then to the holder with dimensionals.  And then a few more leaves found their way on to my project.  I don't have many treats lying around, so I put a few Starbursts in a little baggie, and tucked them in my little 'pumpkin'.

Hope you like what I came up with. I love fall, mostly because Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer is back!  lol  I am on my fourth bottle of the stuff!!

The leaves are pretty much past peak here in northern Wisconsin.  It is gloomy and rainy and cold today.....pretty dreary, so this cheerful card and project were a fun distraction from the gloom outside.

Thanks again for stopping by!! 
Make it a great day.

Very fun sketch this week at Paper Craft Crew.....  
Gave me an idea right away!!!

And this is what came to mind....

The base of my card is white, as is the layer on top of the base.  I put the white layer in my snowflake embossing folder and ran over part of the folder with the end of a screwdriver to partially emboss some snowflakes on to it. I then sponged some Pool Party ink on to the snowflakes.

After adhering the layer to the base, I topped it with a piece of retired dsp.  I cut a big snowflake in Pool Party, and popped that up with some dimensionals. The sentiment is from Endless Wishes, stamped in Pool Party on white cardstock, and also popped up with dimensionals with some silver thread behind it.  I added a little more sparkle with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card. 
Make it a great day!!

Hello, and thank you for stopping by to check out this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge!!  This week it's about love....

In a few short weeks, Titus and will be marking 10 years together.  We have been thru a lot in the last 10 years.  Some good, some not.  We met through Match.com, and every time a commercial for Match comes on, he says to the peeps on tv "Don't do it!!  Just look at what Lisa ended up with!!" lol


I thought this would be a fun card for him.  Hope he likes it.
The card base is Crushed Curry, as is the embossed heart layer. The image and sentiment are from the Pun Intended hostess set.  I colored the 'light' with a sponge dipped in some Crushed Curry.  The heart is from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits, and cut in Pool Party.  The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh, acquired from the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store.  :)

Thanks again for stopping by.
Make it a great week.

Hi there!!!  Thanks for stopping by to check out this week's challenge!!

This week, do what you like!!!  The possibilities are endless!!

I recently got the new Cookie Cutter Christmas set, and thought I should crack it open and play a bit....

The base is Pool Party cardstock.  I embossed the white layer partially by putting the page in my brick embossing folder and rubbing on part of it with the handle of a screwdriver.

I went over the 'bricks' with a sponge dipped in Pool Party ink.  The sentiment and images are stamped in black, colored in my person with copics.  The sentiments are layered on Pear Pizzazz. The images are popped up with dimensionals.

Hope you can find time to share a card with us this week!!
Happy crafting!!

This week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge looks fun!!

Any reason to ink up my favorite deer stamp is a good one!!
So, here I go......

The image is from an old favorite of mine "Remembering Christmas". The sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set simply called "sentiments".  I stamped both in Dapper Denim. I fussy cut the deer, the sentiment is punched out with a retired punch whose name escapes me!!  lol   The card base and backing on top dsp layer is Tip Top Taupe. The dsp layers are from a dsp stack called Festival of Prints.  The ribbon is Early Espresso.

Hope you like my creation.
Make it a great day!!

I must admit to not being a big coffee drinker...... unless it is iced coffee, YUM, or it is fall. 
Because, come fall, here comes the Pumpkin Spice creamer!!  lol  We are barely in to the fall season, and I am on my second container of the PS goodness!!

I really like the idea of fall themed coffee cards, so had to try it out....

My card base and embossed layer are craft paper.. My large coffee cup and sentiment are from the retired "Perfect Blend" set.  The little wooden cup was bought at Hobby Lobby, I think....  The fall paper is pretty, and just a scrap piece from my stash, so not sure of origin.
The embossing folder is Tim Holtz.

A few Pretty Pink Posh sequins (I imagine them as the steam coming off my coffee) finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy crafting.
