Double the fun!

Here are my last two Halloween inspired posts for this year!

The first is my favorite card! I just love white pumpkins! Something about the odd color and greenish tint just really inspire me. I chose to pick out the ivory and green items from the inspiration picture above from Hand Stamped Sentiments to create my design. I added a bit of quilling with my twisting vines and distressed the edges of the stem with my sissors.

The second is a cute little treat holder for any goblins who venture my stoop this Halloween. Which honestly, is very unlikely living so far out in the boonies, but one can always hope! :0) I created this one for the Stampin' Royalty Halloween Challenge.

More Pines & Poinsettias

My mom's birthday was a few weeks ago and I made her this card in favorite color using the Pines & Poinsettias set.

I started out by inking up the large Hello Doily stamp with Versamark and sprinkling Pewter Embossing Powder over it. The loveliness of this color is just wonderful after you heat it up! I colored the flower stamp with Elegant Eggplant & Pear Pizzazz markers, stamped twice, and cut them both out. I added some rhinestones for a little bling.

I also made this cute little Sour Cream Treat Holder to hold some lipgloss to her using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder & the Decorative Label Punch.

I'm going to enter this in The Play Date Cafe Inspiration Challenge.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Confetti Cream
Paper: Designer Series Patterned Paper
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz
Stamp: Hello Doily, Pines & Poinsettias, Create-a-Cupcake
Accessories: Rhinestones, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Decorative Label Punch, Mini Clothespin

A little Thank You!

I've been playing around with the new holiday set Pines & Poinsettias to try to use it in non-traditional holiday colors. I made a simple Thank You card for my mother-in-law who was sweet to think of us on our 10 year anniversary this past week. :) I inked up the stamp with Pure Poppy & Wild Wasabi markers prior to stamping the flowers in either corner. I added a strip of the Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper underneath my sentiment. Added a little bling w/rhinestones & Dazzling Details & Voila! I think I'll add this to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Add a little color to your stamed image.
Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Pure Poppy, Wild Wasabi
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Pines & Poinsettias
