I masked off this card on Whisper White CS to create the horizon.  Colors I used on this card were, Old Olive, Soft Suede, and Soft Sky.  The fence and pumpkins are cut from the Edgelits on page 52 in the HC.  The Wheat is made with shredding the burlap ribbon.  I finished off the card with Halloween Night’s Bakers Twine, page 51. Card base is Pumpkin Pie CS.

Well maybe not, but this is sure an old fashion train decorated for the Holidays.  The stamp set used on this card is from the Holiday catalog.    Christmas Wishes on page 22 is so versatile.  What’s great about this set is all the lovely images and great sentiments.  I will get a lot of different cards out of this set.

I stamped the train with black archival ink on watercolor paper. I made a palette with our inks and used the aqua painter to color it.  Although, the North Pole sign is not on watercolor paper, I did the same here trying not to wet the whisper white paper very much.

I cut out the window with Lots of Labels Framelits, page 193 of the AC and added our foam adhesive strips, page 182, to pop up the window.  In addition, I used Soft Sky on the front of the card.

The background is created using the DSP, Halloween Specialty, page 51 of the HC.  The stamp sets used are Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53, and Sweet Home, page 40, of the HC.  The cute little spooky house is cut out from the DSP above.  I just love this pack of DSP, it is so versatile that you can use it both for Halloween and Fall cards.  Of course, the little Mummy is cut out with the Cookie Cutter punch on page 6 of the HC.

Hey Stampers, so sorry you have not heard from me in a few days.  I have been sick but back to my old former self now, and starting to post daily again.  Sure hope you missed me because I missed you!

This project was made using the Stamp set Sweet Home and the Thinlits, page 40 of the HC.  It is almost like the sample on the same page except that I changed it around a little.  The DSP is Halloween Night Specialty on page 51.  Love this suite.  You can get a discount on the bundle if you buy both the set and thinlits together.

When I saw this set, page 24 in the HC, and the matching Thinlits, I knew I had to have it.  You can get this bundle with a 10% discount.  Both the set and the Thinlits are very versatile.  I embossed the top of the sleigh with Copper EP.  I used the Snowman from Christmas Magic, page 22.  The background paper is from the DSP Fruit Stand, page 172, in the AC.

This was one of the cards we made at Camp on Saturday.  The Specialty DSP, Halloween Night, page 51 of the HC, really sets it off.  I used the set Jar of Haunts from the HC, page 55.  The sentiment is stamped on a banner cut from the Banner Framelits, page 193, AC and backed with silver foil, page 175.
I just love all the holiday stamps this year and this is one of my favs.  I usd the silver metallic thread, page 178 in back of the cute zombie.

From the HC, this 3D item is what we made at Camp on Saturday.  The DSP is Halloween Night Specialty paper and I cut the bag out with our Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, page 191 in the AC.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, page 186 to make the tag and decorated it with the stamps from Sweet Home.  The Bow is made from the new Halloween Night Baker’s Twine and fastened with the Gold Binder clips, page 177.  Imagine how cool this would be filled with candy for that special little Trick or Treater.

I splattered this card with White Craft ink to make the snow.  The card was created with items from the new Holiday catalog.  The little houses were fussy cut from the beautiful DSP Candy Cane Lane.  The sentiment is from the set, Merry Mouse (how interesting is that)? The fence is cut with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits on Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
The tree is from last years set Peaceful Pines, page 28 and the matching dies, Perfect Pines, page 192.

Here I did use a stamp from the HC (brick wall), from the set Ghoulish Grunge, which I hope stays on as a great texture stamp set.  It has wonderful images great for using on cards other than Holiday related.
I used the stamp set, Flower Shop, page 105, and the sentiment from the set, Suite Sayings, page 104 where I used the Tags & Labels Framelits, page 193. In addition,
I used the Copper metallic Thread, page 178 and the Very Vanilla Lace trim, page 179.  The Inks used were Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Perfect Plum.
The flowers are embellished with the enamel Halloween dots and Copper Foil (HC), and Flourish Thinlits, page 194.

This card is created with the Edgelits, Halloween Scenes, from the new HC.  The sentiment is actually from the set, Glamper Greetings, and with a Thinlit dies from Home Sweet Home.  The DSP is new also and that is called Halloween Night Specialty.  Note the house on the bottom is fussy cut from same DSP.  So versatile.

I created this card using the images from the set, Flower Shop, page 105 with the matching Pansy punch, page 187.  I was really in a punch type mood all this week.  Maybe it was because I rec’d my new goodies last week that included new punches and decided that I haven’t used my old ones in awhile.
The leaves are cut out with the Framelits, Botanical Builder found on page 194 and stamped with the set Botanical Blooms, page 142.  I added Enamel Shapes, page 177, to the center of the flowers.Colors used were Burmuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Basic Black Achrival Ink.
The background paper is from Pop of Pink Specialty DSP, page 172.  In addition, I added the new Black Metallic thread, page 178, behind the sentiment, found on page 86 with the Tin of Stamps set.

Last week I featured this same card a little differently.  I used a different pattern of the DSP, A Little Foxy Paper Stack, page 174.  Here I used the colors Watermelon Wonder, Basic Gray and Smokey Slate.  In addition, I added our beautiful Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  The circle was cut with our new Layered Circle Famelits, page 193, and I replaced the ribbon with paper.

Yes, I love these Thinlits also, found on page 194.  Of course, the first time I saw this stamp set, Best Birds, page 53, I knew I HAD TO HAVE IT!  There is so much you can do with this set and the matching Thinlits.
I watercolored the bird with Early Espresso, Crumb cake and Tangerine Tango.  Other colors used were Bermuda Bay and Old Olive.
You can get a 10% discount on both the set and Thinlets if you buy them as a bundle.  Can’t beat that for this very versatile bundle.

The sentiment from this set can be found on page 93.  I decided to create this card using the beautiful DSP, By the Shore, page 173.  I used Calypso Coral card stock and Mint Macaron 3/8″ sheer linen ribbon, page 178.  This is one of those cards that I consider a CAS (clean and simple).

I created this card for the SUO #153 Challenge.  The challenge was to create a black and white card with a pop of color.  I used the wink of stella glimmer pen, page 181, tinted with Flirty Flamingo.

I Got this idea from France Martin.  According to France, there is always a little glimmer left in the pen so after you use up the clear glimmer, you add several drops of ink refill to the barrel of the pen and then add rubbing alcohol.  Give it a little shake and you have colored shimmer.  In addition, I used the In-Color enamel shapes, page 177.

The Stamp set I used is Best Birds, page 53.  I combined several dies, Swirly Scribbles and Flourish Thinlits on this card.  Hope you like it.

I created this card using the stamp set, Pineapple, page 124.  I embossed the image in clear embossing powder on whisper white card stock.  I then sponged the areas around the pineapple with Cucumber Crush and Peekaboo Peach creating the resist technique.  I blended the very bottom of Peekaboo Peach with Flirty Flamingo to create a little more interest.  The stamp for the banner is from the set, Birthday Banners, page 15 and so is the sentiment.  It was cut out with the Bunch of Banners framelits, page 193.
