Control Freaks October Blog Tour - Gratitude

Hello, Stampers!

Welcome to the October Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!
This month, we are sharing projects of gratitude.
Whether you are arriving from Wendy's blog or
just starting out, you are in for some fantastic inspiration!

One of the biggest things I am grateful for are those
who come to my home, Friends, family, stampers
and all those in between! 

I created this welcome sign for my front door to 
greet those from now through Thanksgiving.
I found the felt owl ant my local dollar store.
He was so cute, I had to bring him home - lol!
Adding the banner and leaves and he's all 
fun and festive and ready for Fall!

The banner was free-handed on Crumb Cake cardstock 
and stamped with the Hardwood stamp. 
The Large Alphabet letters were cut from
gold glimmer paper and glued directly on.

I embossed the leaves with gold embossing powder and
crinkled them before hot gluing them to the owl.

Believe it or not, this project was made in just under an hour!
Makes a gift or class project, too!
Stamps: Vintage Leaves, Hardwood
Ink: Versamark, Crumb Cake
Paper: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise, Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake, Gold Glimmer
Accessories: Large Letter alphabet, Gold Sequin trim, Leaflets framelits, gold embossing powder, heat tool, 5/8" burlap ribbon, Felt Owl

Custom Cards - Old Meets New

Good Morning, Stampers!

I was asked to make a set of cards for an upcoming soccer banquet. It's hard to say "good-bye" to certain stamp sets (especially ones with sports images) like this set Goal from several years ago. Since both my boys play(ed) soccer, I knew hanging onto this was going to come in handy! The Large Letter framelits are great for personalzing and  I love how well the current products work with the retired products. A great combination!

Contact me to order your custom cards! Birthdays, Invites,
Baby and Wedding Showers, Bridal, Banquets, Holidays and more!
Prices start at just $3/card!

Stamps: Goal (retired)
Ink: Archival Basic Black
Paper: Night of Navy, Delightful Dijon, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Starburst framelit, Large Letter framelits, Sparkle embossing folder, Thanks die cut (non-SU!)

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Smell My Feet Treats

Good Morning Stampers!
We have another great week of Halloween fun for you!
Smell My Feet Treats! Great ideas for your little gobblins!

When my kids were growing up, we always had fun around Halloween
placing "You've Been Booed" treats around the neighborhood. 
The treat I created today is an updated version featuring 
current products from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I turned the Popcorn Box thinlits into a door hanger by adding a
2 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of Basic Black cardstock. A die cut circle at the
top allows the treat to be hung on the door handle.

The sweet little ghosts were created using the Paisley framelit dies.
They are too stinkin' cute!! Happy, not scary!

To create the handle: Attach the Basic Black cardstock
to the backside of the popcorn box and trim off the 
overhang on both sides. 
Stamps: Goolish Grunge, Spooky Fun
Ink: Whisper White, Archival Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer
Accessories: Popcorn Box thinlits, Layering Circle framelits, Corner Rounder, Large Letter thinlits, Paisley framelit dies, Basic Black Baker's Twine
