Easy Halloween Frame

This project is so simple and so amazing!  I borrowed the idea from Chic n Scratch, that lady  (Angie Juda) is such a genius!  She has a tutorial on her site that shows you exactly how to create it!  Oh yeah, also a little "advertising" for Wal-Mart .... $3. frames!  All you need is your paper cutter and a package of the Witches Brew DSP and one of the $3. frames ~ it comes out looking so cool!

Sorry for the glare!

Birthday Card for my Sis'

Here's the card I created for my Sis' who lives in LaHabra.  Don't get to see her very often but she's always in my heart and on my mind.  She's the 2nd to the youngest of the six of us.  Hope your Birthday is awesome Dee and your card got there in time!

This idea came from StampinTexasChristi'sU-tubeChannel .  She has so many great ideas, love her site Stamp In Texas with Christi Beck.  The stamp set is You're Amazing.  I used Melon Mambo CS for the base.  Whisper White ran through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The little flowers were punched with one of the Itty Bitty Stamp Set stamps.  The banners were cut using Quatrefancy DSP.  I used the new Candy Dots on top of the little flowers.  (I didn't mount them on the brads like Christi did because I was going to mail it and wanted to avoid too much width.) I also used the new Envelope Liner Framelits' Die to make a lining for the envelope (love those Framelits)!

Happy Birthday Sis'~

Swap Card for Luv2Stamp Group Meeting 8-17-2013

Our Luv 2 Stamp Group had a meeting yesterday in Concord.  Here's the swap I made (there were 22 people who traded), I received some awesome trades in return!


The top photo was taken by Vinnie Cespedes, she added to her blog and I thought her picture was much better than mine!  Mine is the bottom one before I decided the green Candy Dots would look better than the brown!  Check out Vinnie's blog, she has pictures of all the trades from our meeting.  Thanks so much Vinnie, what a great idea.

I'm loving the Perfect Blend Stamp Set.  I used Baked Brown Sugar, Season of Style Paper Stack and Cherry Cobbler Co'ordinations CS and DSP.  For embellishments I used Candy Dots.  The coffee & friends was punched out using the new Label Bracket Punch.  The background Cherry Cobbler C'ordinations paper I ran through the Big Shot using the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder and then sanding it with the Sanding Blocks.  I "fussy-cut" the cups and cozies!

I didn't win a prize for my creation but I was proud to trade.  We have so many great Demonstrators in our Group and getting one of their hand-made cards is like Christmas!

Braylon's Wedding Card

This is the card I created for my Step-Grandson and his Bride for their recent wedding in Oceanside.  We attended the wedding but didn't get to see them open their cards (they requested money in lieu of gifts).  I sure hope they liked the card as well as the $$$!  The wedding was beautiful and the Bride and Groom beamed with happiness.  I pray they have a long and happy life together...

I used the new Framelits Envelope Liners  which are available starting today in the new Holiday Catalog (see link on right) with Modern Medley DSP.  The card base and hearts are Riding Hood Red CS.  The Tux and Wedding Dress are Whisper White CS and I used the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder for the texture on the top of the card.  Her dress was embossed with a retired embossing folder (sorry) longer available.  I used Pearls to accent and a small piece of ribbon for the bow tie. The inside of the card was cut with  Labels Collection Framelits and the message was computer generated.  The Forever & Always is from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set.
