Out on a Limb

out on a limb I made these fun little cello toppers for our new 1x8 cello bags from the Holiday mini catalog.  I am going to make more of these for the holidays. They are easy and adorable and I know they will appeal to the kiddos, because I have had to rescue them from Aubrey several times. Before I got to take pictures. I tried to offer her some treats in one of the little bags, but she insisted on having one with the topper! You could make them a little simpler, by just stamping on a white card stock and skip all the cutting. I am thinking we'll make these for stamp camp next week. Out on a limb Thanks for stopping by!

Another Haunted Forest

haunted forest Here is another card that I made using the Haunted Forest image. Another demonstrator dared me to use up some of the "extra" pieces on my desk from the previous days creative session ( thanks Judy!). I end up with a lot of those. Pieces that are created when what is going on in my head doesn't translate to paper in the way that I thought it would. I played with this piece originally without the sponging, but the image got a little lost in the DSP.  It really was a different creative process for me, to start with a piece that I had to use and then build the rest of the card around that. It was fun though, and I may revisit this card design because I have already come up with a couple of touches that I wish I would have added! Thanks for looking!

Haunted Forest

I absolutely adore this image. It's so spooky and sweet.  It hints of cooler weather, a plethora of pumpkin goodies and little munchkins in sweet costumes. It makes me want to put in my Sleepy Hollow DVD and gaze at Johnny Depp for while. I can't wait for fall!
When I saw this Haunted Forest stamp in the Holiday mini, I knew I wanted to mask  a moon and sponge in a spooky sky.  I embossed the image with Iridescent Ice to give it some sparkle. I started out with a matted image, but then decided to really glitz it up with a glittered chipboard piece. I have to admit that I really had fun creating this card! Thanks for stopping by!

Warmest of Wishes

warmest of wishes This is a fun little treat that we made at stamp camp this month. Remember when we used to have to print a box pattern onto card stock, cut it out, score it with a stylus and then glue or tape it together to assemble? I do. I must admit that I am hopelessly spoiled by my Big Shot with all the adorable little box dies we have to choose from. It's so easy to roll a piece of card stock through the Big shot and then just fold the box together. Those neat little treats for the holidays are so much quicker and easier to make now! I used several sets for this little goody. The adorable little owl is from a hostess set being offered in the new Holiday Mini catalog. The limb is from a darling new set called out on a limb. You are going to want this one, it has several scene elements that can be used for many other things (clouds, moon, limb, sweet witch, broom and more). The little candies have belly bands that have been stamped with It's a Wrap Holidays, also from the new mini. Four little Hershey Treasures fit perfectly in this little match box. Thanks for looking!
