Halloween Card

Here is an easy Halloween card I'm going to do for a beginners workshop I'm having in a couple weeks. I'm going to make a matching goodie bag also, but haven't work on that yet. Stay tuned....

I used the Autumn Apparitions set from the Winter Mini Catalog that comes out September 1st. This set is my favorite right now!! You can do so much with it!

I used my Scallop Punch and then cut out a pumpkin and cat and raised it up with dimensionals. I used Only Orange and Basic Black SU! Cardstock and Ink.

Thanks for looking!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

True Friend ATC's

Here are some ATC's I made. I used the True Friend Stamp set from the New Winter Mini Catalog that comes out September 1st. This set is sooo cute!!! I used Basic Black, Whisper White and Rose Red SU! Cardstock and Ink. I also used the Scallop Punch, 1 1/4" Punch, and then cut out the flower and raised it on a dimensional and put a brad in the center. The ribbon is from Mikes!

Thanks for looking!

A case from Cammie

I love her work sooo much!!! I've had this card in my favorites for a while now and finally got the chance to do my own version.

Carolyns card:;ppuser=78793

1. First I changed the pink to red.
2. I used an SU! Set (Priceless) instead of the MFT set she used.
3. I changed the cb folder
4. Instead of the square tag that said thanks I used a circle.
5. Lasty instead of using a flower I used the Designer Label punch!
