Double Layer Card and HUGE SALE

I've shown you several cards using the Triple Time technique but today my card uses two layers instead of three! I saw this technique over at a new site called Stamping and Blogging! 
All of my stamp images are from the set Day of Gratitude.  My colors are Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade. A quick and easy card to put together!

Another Gum Holder

Today I have a different gum holder from yesterday and my inspiration came from Dannie Graves. The gum slides into this holder but it is very snug and won't fall out. I used a small piece of paper from the Orchard Harvest pack - loving the fall colors! I also used the Day of Gratitude stamp set and colored my image with my Stampin' Write markers. My ribbon isn't used to hold it together but is decorative, a nice finishing touch! I was able to make this very quickly. If you were making several as a party favor, you would have them done in no time!

Thank you for stopping by!

Gum Holder

I love making little holders for candy and today I have a holder for a pack of gum!! I found the template for this very easy to make holder on Connie Babbert's blog.  She always has such great ideas. 

My paper is from the pack Orchard Harvest and I love all of the colors in this particular paper (from the Holiday Catalog). I also used our new 1 1/4 inch Scallop circle punch (the Cajun Craze color).  My sentiment comes from one of my favorites - Fabulous Phrases.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Triple Time Birthday

Today's card is one that I made for a friend whose birthday is today!  I sent this card to her several days ago and I sure hope she receives it on time  I love the Triple Time Technique and used it again on this card.  It is so easy to make a pretty card with it and it can be made rather quickly. The stamps I used are from the set Perfectly Preserved.  I love flowers and I stamped them all around the card in Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade.   The greeting is from the set Friendly Phrases.  I hope my friend likes it!!

Congratulations to Diana!  She won the set, Scentsational Season.  I will mail your new stamp set tomorrow!

Thank you for stopping by!  If you would like to order any of the products that I've used on my card, you can order directly from my online store HERE or email me.

Take Care,

Blog Candy DEADLINE Today!!

Today is the last day to be entered into my drawing for the stamp set Scentsational Season!!  Read all about it in my blog post HERE.  My card today uses one of the cute stamps in the set.  The DSP (Designer Series Paper) that I used is from a great little stack of 48 sheets of 4 1/2" x 6 1/2"  paper called Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack.  There are 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  It is acid-free so that is a plus for scrapbookers. Many of the prints are great for the holidays but there are quite a few that could be used for any occasion! This stack of paper can be found in the Holiday Catalog on page 20. 

You can visit my online store HERE to place an order.  You can also download SU! catalogs - you can find them on the left hand side of my blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I will announce the winner of my blog candy on Wednesday!! Good luck!!

Ornament Keepsakes Card

My card today uses the stamp set, Ornament Keepsakes, and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits which are both part of the October Promotion going on now! Follow this link to see the details! I also used the new embossing folder, Holiday Frame.  I started with a piece of Gumball Green cardstock for the base of my card.  I stamped my ornaments on Very Vanilla and used my framelits to cut them out.  I added dimensionals to the back of each ornament and attached them to the embossed Very Vanilla cardstock.  Some rhinestones were added to each ornament for some sparkle! The card came together very quickly and looks very striking in person (sorry if it is a bit dark).

If you would like to order any of these supplies, you can visit my online store here.  Email me if you have any questions at all!

Christmas Cheer

I know it isn't even Halloween yet but it is never too early to start thinking about what Christmas cards you will be sending out this year! My inspiration for this card comes from Maggie Patterson.  It uses the Holiday Collection Framelits and the Sweet Essentials stamp set.  After using the Framelits and my Big Shot to cut out the tree, I glued ribbon behind the tree.  My star is punched out with the set Merry Minis in the Holday Catalog.  I used our beautiful silver glimmer paper. I cut my sentiment on a strip of paper and used one of my square punches at each end to get the little notches.  It is so cool when you can used a punch in a different way!

I am happy with this card but it is a tad plain to me.  I would like to try another one with an embossed front or perhaps a little bit of shimmer mist!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Don't forget about my blog candy post - you can read about it HERE

Mini Treat Box

I'm back!! I've been (and still am) in New York.  My husband commutes to New York from Central California, where we live.  Because he commutes so much, we have an apartment in New York where I've been for the past ten days and I plan to continue my stay for a bit longer.  I have a growing stash of stamping supplies here so I've been stamping in between visitng the city!  It really is a FUN city. Today we went to Times Square to look for a onesie for our granddaughter, Audrey.  We also visited the M&M's store and I bought some purple M&M's!!  Just walking the streets is entertaining!

Onto what I've created for today! I saw this box on Dawn Olchefske's site and knew that I immediately wanted to make one.  It really was quite easy. It's a small box but you could tuck a small gift inside or some candy.  I wanted to use a thicker paper than DSP so I used a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped my images using the stamp set Day of Gratitude in Old Olive, Cajun Craze and More Mustard.

My sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla but I think next time I might try using the Crumb Cake again.  If you would like to see a video by Dawn showing you how to put this box together, you can visit here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please visit tomorrow to see how you can have a chance to win some blog candy!!!

Audrey Aurora

Last Tuesday, September 25th at 6:33 pm, my granddaughter, Audrey Aurora, was born to my daughter Erin and her husband, Tyler!  Once we knew Erin was in labor, my husband and I took about twenty minutes to load the car and began our 7 hour journey to the hospital. We made it before Audrey was born, which made me very happy!  She is a gorgeous baby and we are already in love with her. She is so precious and each morning it was a joy to see her again! We had to head home today and I am missing Erin and her little family terribly.  I think that between my husband and I, we took about 400 pictures so that will help! I took quite a few videos too. If you are a new parent or grandparent, I am sure you understand the need for so many pictures!!!
Needless to say, I took a little break from stamping to be with my new grandchild.  I will start creating again and posting very soon.  I had promised some blog candy so be looking for that in the near future!!
