September Paper Pumpkin Extras!

Here are two cards that I made using the September Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Aren't they cute! 
I used Tangelo Twist as the base and added a layer of Blackberry Bliss. 
On the first card I used whisper white craft ink to stamp the Happy Halloween sentiment. 
On the second card I stamped the skull in Tuxedo black to make a spooky background!

Finding time to craft during nap time today- so I'll have some cool new samples for you later this week!!! 

Can't believe the Fall line up of TV this season! Gotta turn the tv towards my craft area to watch and craft! What is your favorite new show?

Gift Box punch Board

I made some really cute boxes with the new gift box punch board awhile back and wanted to share them with you! 
Here's the first:

This box is the perfect size for a little treat to say thank-you! Can you guess what is inside of the box? It's my trademark secret! 

(Ok-not so secret... Yup you guessed it.... CHOCOLATE!!!!!)

The box is just under 2" around and only needs a 6x6" piece of cardstock! 

Box number 2 was made with a full 12x12 sheet of cardstock:

It's 4" around, a nice size for something bigger, maybe even a cupcake!!!!

For both boxes I used the tree trimmings DSP out of the holiday catalogue! It's a nice thicker weight cardstock, which is great for making boxes!

Have you seen then new DSP? Which design is your favorite?
 I'm really digging the pattern I made the first box with!

Cute Blendabilities birthday cards!

I just ordered a few more colours of blendabilities markers and so I decided to make a few more of the birthday cards using the Bloom With Hope stamp set! 

I also just bought the new project life app so here is a layout with my cards! 

You can't see the colours as well, but I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder and Rich Razzleberry for these ones. The one in the middle is the Cherry Cobbler one I posted earlier this week! 

Just enough of a pop of colour in the mat to give it a little oomph.

West Coast Creator's Blog Hop #2!

Welcome to our second West Coast Creators Blog Hop!
This month we are featuring the Blendabilities Marker Line from Stampin' Up!
I am loving these markers! They blend so easily and make colouring your images a breeze!

We'll start off with a project from the annual catalogue- this stamp set is a hostess set called Bloom with Hope- and has great sketched lines that are perfect for this type of colouring.

Isn't it just gorgeous!
I used the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities for this one.
Remember to use your Memento Ink pad for stamping these ones- as Blendabilities are Alcohol based markers and will cause Stazon Ink to run and smear.
I added just a pop of Cherry Cobbler paper behind to give it a little boost!

Next, from the Holiday Catalogue:
This Single stamp from the Holiday Catalogue is called Christmas Bauble (#133824) and is just perfect for colouring! Again I used the same 3 sets of Blendabilities, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. I love how the shading gives the element of dimension! 
I used the Deco Label Framelits to cut out the sentiment frame and the sentiment is from the Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set (#135029). Then I took my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write marker and made the stitching dashes around the outside of the die cut. Add a rhinestone and voila!
