Halloween Card

I think this turned out pretty cool! I used aluminum foil in my big shot with an impressions plate that came with it. I wanted to use silver paper but realized that I'm all out and since its almost 1 o'clock in the morning I decided against running out to get some. I like this look better, it gives it that spooky halloween feel with the black flowers that I punched from a Stampin' Up punch. (Boho Blossom) I also used their scallop border punch and ribbon. The stamp is from a set I bought at Michael's last year and I stamped it in silver! I hope you enjoy!!

Halloween Treats!

I know these little guys are hard to see but not bad for pictures from my iPhone! I used the mini monsters cartridge for the boxes and then added a few items in them like pop rocks, a candycorn lolipop, a coffin full of goo and a spider and a gummie eye ball. I put them in basket bags and tied a halloween ribbon on them! They turned out very cute in person!

Heat Embossing Video

This is a video I made for my sister which I call, Thister, you'll hear in my video! I'm filming from my laptop so sorry it's hard to see! I'll get better sooner or later. (Seems like it's gonna be later though! lol)

Spooky Halloween Banner

A quick and easy banner for Halloween!
I cut the letters out using my Cricut, added some bling using my iRock and some left over dimensional stickers from last year! I used two sided halloween paper from last year too and just folded over the top edge and stapled it to a piece of ribbon! and voila, a simple halloween banner!

Mini Monsters Cartridge

Aren't these little monsters adorable? I used the Cricut Mini Monsters Cartridge and the second picture shows it using all the pieces it recommends. On the first picture I used googly eyes and a silver pen for the mouth. I think they are both cute as can be!! If you use a 12x12 piece of paper you can get 2 boxes out of it! I love when that works out like that! Another great thing about these little boxes is that on the bottom of the box you don't even need to use adhesive, they cut out so you can just fold them up!! I love that! It makes it so super easy to reproduce.
I inked the edges in Stampin' Up old olive classic ink to give them some dimension and I used some multi adhesive to glue the other pieces on. The wings on the side had a little slot that the cricut cuts out for you and I just folded the ends a little and glued them in there for more support!

Snow Swirled! Cherry Cobbler

This is an upgrade to the last post of snow swirled cards that I did in Old Olive. I used Cherry Cobbler instead and I also tested out my Stamp-a-mi-jig. I stamped my tree in Cherry Cobbler and then stamped it again using the versamark. I sprinkled it with some embossing powder I had that is mostly clear with some red glitter in it. I think it's called Jelly something, I don't know, but I used that and then I heat embossed it!! It looks so beautiful and professional looking I couldn't believe that I actually made it! I also used my new iRock heat tool and gems to add some bling! (I love bling!) I used two different sizes of gems on the tree and then a larger size on the top! Gorgeous!!

Snow Swirled!

I cased this card from a website that I can't remember, Sorry! But isn't this card so amazing?! I used whisper white and old olive cardstock and old olive ink. I also used the swiss dots folder and the ticket corner punch from Stampin Up!
I didn't have ribbon to match so I just cut a 1/4" piece of the old olive paper to replace it!
I made a pack of 4 cards with envelopes in a clear cello bag as a gift. Cool huh!

Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge

Just a Little Pick Up

I have a Stampin' Up order coming in the mail hopefully Tuesday so I'll have to make a new video of some of the Christmas cards I come up with.
I went to a card class on Friday, last night, and made two really, really cute birthday cards! I love card classes! I think I should have one soon! Check out at Croppers Couture if your in south tampa, crops and classes to be posted soon!!

Happy Halloween!

I just love Halloween! I held my monthly crop at Potbellies a few weeks ago and I couldn't resist having a Halloween Make n Take for everyone! I used three punches from Stampin' Up!, the photo corner punch, the scallop edge punch and the Scallop Circle punch. Isn't he just so cute?? I had some left over Halloween paper from DCWV last year and just used some googly eyes and a stamp from Michael's dollar bin.
I love it!
