Awesome Halloween!

Hello  & Happy HALLOWEEN Crafty Friends!
It's Halloween and the last day of October! EEK!
I swear this month went by so quickly!
I blinked 3 times and BAM it's over!

I think they are right... the older you get
the quicker time seems to past ya by.
Or at least for me... I see it that way!

I thought I would end October with a Halloween card!
I created this card last weekend and just love how cute it is!

I got almost everything from the Silhouette Store!

Print N Cut Bear Image - #277905 (Stinkin' Cute Designs) cut 2x's
Designer Papers - #220602 & #205976 (Miss Kate Cuttables)

Black card base - Paper Trey Ink
An orange piece of Fun Foam
I used Dimensionals to POP up the bear image

Here's a close up of the adorable bear - I used a clear Wink of Stella
glitter pen on the trim of the hat, the clipboard topper piece
 and on the potion bottles then went back over it 
with a clear glaze pen and also glazed that adorable nose too! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
I Hope you all have a SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Still, wish I was on vacation of course but
I need to get back to the real world!

I've been playing catch up with work and
blogger and FB - Busy, Busy...

I actually found some time to craft this
past weekend and get some things organized.
I think taking little breaks here and there help
to make my brain work better! I still have lots
to do, but got a few things crossed off that list!

I thought I would share a bubbly kindness card
I made at a Stampin' Up class I took a while back -

I brought this card kit home and added my own personal touches
1 being the stitched dies... 
I LOVE my stitched dies and can't create without them!

fun cards made with this stamp/die combo set - :)

Square Birthday Ombre....

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone! Yay it's the weekend!
*** This is a Pre-Scheduled Post ***

I made another lovely Birthday card
for a co-worker...

I don't know about you guys... But, do you have a stash of stamps & dies
you haven't even used yet? But HAD to have when you saw them on
a video at let's say... Jennifer McGuire's Youtube Channel??

Raising hand very slowly to say MEEE!! I order them, I organize them
and then I eventually get around to using them! 😛

This beautiful die is no exception! It's a pretty Memory Box die called
Sensational Butterfly Collage

I have to tell ya... I DID NOT Distress the paper either! WHAT?
Yup... I found this PRETTY Ombre Designer Paper in the
Silhouette Store! So, I HAD to print it out and it's sooo pretty
when printed out on white smooth Bazzill cardstock!

My card base is a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 square card using (Neenah Solar White)
Then I used a Lawn Fawn stitched square die on
 my ombre digital paper and added some Fun Foam behind it
I attached the butterfly die cut on top of that and added
some glitter to my butterfly with a Sakura glitter pen
Then I sealed the glitter in with a Clear Glaze Sakura Pen

Not wanting my Butterfly to hid I used a strip of Vellum to place
across my card front and Die Cut out the "Birthday" word 4x's
in some black cardstock backed with Stick it adhesive
Layered them all together then worked on placement

I wanted the "wishes" word to stand out too, so I decided
to use Black Embossing powder on that word -
I added some lovely clear adhesive gems...
and that's my card!!!

As my vacation comes to an end
I'll be getting ready to play
Blog commenting catch up -
So please be patient while I try to leave you
wonderful crafty peeps some love!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ornamental Holidays...

Happy Thursday Everyone!!

I thought I would share another project I made
using the NEW Release of TANGLED TINSEL

You guys know how I LOVE making Christmas cards!
So, I had to make another Fun Christmas Card!!!

I did some Heat Embossing in White for the snowflakes and in Gold
for the bows and Bells - I really like how this turned out -

The Foliage is a Martha Stewart Punch I have, so I used
3 different shades of green to create it -
I colored the ornaments with my Stampin Blends Markers
I used a Wonky Stitch Die around my white border and
I popped the whole thing up on some Fun Foam
before adhering it to my Red Card Base -

I wanted to show you how I did the inside of my card as well -
Using the ornament stamp and then adding a lovely sentiment
I also added some foliage and a bell to it as well -
I can't wait to mail this off to someone!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Fabulous Day!!
