Elf Card

Happy Halloween!  So I didn't post yesterday, I was preparing for our Preschool Halloween Party.  However, I did get these cute little cards started for a craft fair.  I found this card on Pinterest and when I googled images, I found several variations of this card. I still have to stamp these but it is a start.  I mixed and matched the different shades of Stampin' Up!s  reds and greens to make these.

                               Here are some of my Supplies:
                       Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Gumball Green, Garden Green,
                                Whisper White, and Old Olive

                       Designer Series Paper: retired and current scraps

                       Accessories: Top Note Die, Ornament punch, 3/4" circle Punch

Here's the website where I found the instructions if you have any questions  on how to make the shoes.

Leaves, Leaves, and More Leaves

Here are some Fall cards I am working on. Still need to add the words and the buttons, but this gives you an idea on how to use this die. Pinterest has some great layouts to use. I spent a couple of hours searching for cards and I'm now following a few people that have over 7000 cards posted.

 I just got the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (127812) a few days ago from the Holiday Catalog and I am having so much fun with it. No more hunting for paper or fabric leaves at the craft store when I can make them myself.   I also use them for collage material in my child care.

I had alot of success using 3 sheets of card stock at a time to cut out my leaves, then I ran them through again in the embossing folders to give them a "real" look. They match the beautiful colors of the tree in my backyard view to the southeast towards the Rocky Mountains.
                 Card stock & ink: Choc. Chip, Sahara Sand, Old Olive,
                 Pumpkin Pie,  Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze,
                 and Cherry Cobbler

                 DSP: Orchard Harvest
                Accessories: Autumn Accents Die, Square Lattice Folder,
                Spider Web Folder, Shimmer Paint, pop dots,
                scrap ribbon, sponges

Anything but a card- Hair Barrettes

I think I'm addicted to Stampin' Up! 's embellishments.  I was re-organizing my craft room ( which I seem to do alot) and as I was hanging up the ribbon rod, I realized that I have a ton of SU ribbon and buttons from 8 years ago.  Luckily, everything still matches, only have a few retired colors.  SO, I decided to make hair bows; mostly for the 4 little girls in my preschool and maybe I'll have enough for a craft fair eventually.  I'm not as crafty as I would like to be, so I watched several YouTube video tutorials to make these.   So here is one I made, as I'm still configuring the Halloween bows.  Enjoy!!!

It's already October

With 9 days til my husband's military retirement, I am spending these last few days cleaning house and prepping for friends and family that will be arriving soon.  I think the only thing I have accomplished is organizing my craft room. I haven't seen the table in 3 months with all the projects on it.  Hopefully I will get some card making in.  I have completed my MDS scrapbook for my child care and will be ordering it soon.  I am excited that Stampin' Up! has single stamp sets for sale from a few different sets.  Just means I have more on my "NEED TO GET" list.   Happy Stamping!!!
