Falling leaves and other new stuff!

Hi all! I just got another order of new stuff last night! It's all super great! I've already made some Christmas tags with the two tags die and they are really cool! The new shimmer paint is so fun to play with and makes everything so sparkly and elegant, can't wait to play some more...that being said, this will be a short post so I can stamp!!!! Below you can see the tags I made and also two other cards.

The first is a Halloween card using Haunting Hill. It's a jumbo wheel and talk about whipping up a FAST card! It would also look cool watercolored (have to try that later!). The other was inspired my one of my SU! publications I get as a demo. It uses the Falling Leaves set and is perfect for fall! These were two very simple cards that took little time and turned out great! Enjoy!

Some "SWEET" ideas!

After a crazy work week, I finally have some time to stamp! I was able to go to Target this morning and finally pick up some Halloween candy to use with the Sweet Centers stamp set and sweet treat cups from the new Holiday Mini Catalog! These are the coolest little things ev-ah! They are small round plastic cups with a ring of adhesive around the edge so that they can be filled with stuff and then placed on a card or maybe with a lollipop stick as a treat (backed with CS of course). The stamps in the Sweet Centers set coordinate with the cups. In the set there is a heart and a Halloween square image that the cup goes in the middle of. There is also a hot air balloon (balloon is the cup), an ornament topper (cup is the ornament) and a petal and leaves to make a flower around the cup. And the good news is, you can use all the stamps without the cups as well! And I think the cups will carry over to the next catalog as well and SU! will probably add more stamps to go with them (of course, you can use the cups with other stamp sets as well, making the options endless). Here are the two cards I made today:

Stamps: Sweet Centers, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Old olive, rich razzleberry, pumpkin pie, basic black, and WW
Inks: classic basic black, razzleberry
Accessories: Sweet treat cups, 1 3/4" circle punch, modern label punch, Halloween M&M's
Uses paper tearing and I took the pad to the paper on the razzleberry in the same color and sponged black ink on the label

Stamps: Sweet Centers, Christmas Greetings, Berry Christmas
Paper: WW, real red, garden green
Ink: Real red and garden green
Accessories: Sweet treat cups, 1 3/4" circle punch, white taffeta ribbon, dazzling diamonds, petals-a-plenty embossing folder

Do remember when you use them that the paper you back the cup with will show through. I forgot this on the H-ween card and you can see a little of the scrap of kraft I used. I like that you can fill them with treats (which unless you do some creative stuff your card will be destroyed to get the good stuff...fine with me but it bothers some) or with stuff like glitter or microbeads. I have some candy corn I want to fill them with next, I need to order some more. Contact me today to get your catalog, place your order, or book your workshop to earn FREE stuff. Which, by the way, free stuff is the BEST way to get started on the paper crafting hobby!

Now just for fun, I'm going to post the punch pumpkin I made with the round tab punch. How cute would these be at each place setting at Thanksgiving dinner. These will most likely be included in my upcoming Fall Frenzy class! Look for details to follow on this class soon!!!! Time to go stamp some more!
