    Wonderfully Wicked Cemetery

    I am sure ready for some fun Halloween projects! I even did a video to walk you through the steps… You will want the Wonderfully Wicked (150547), Everyday Label (144668), Ink and Paper… Window Sheets (142314) for the “flying” bats and Silver Metallic Thread (138402). Adding the mini dimensional to the window sheets helped to keep them “flying”. The video below will walk you through all the steps.. I did add the Wink of Stella (141897) to all the kitties after the video. The front kitty was also added after the video… she was just too cute and needed another friend. I sure hope this helps to spark some crafty…

    Ride with me inspiration…

    I am sooo loving this truck!! The Ride with Me Bundle (151106) has pumpkins and balloons too. It all started with the Stampin’ Blends on the truck. For instance, Cherry Cobbler, both light and dark, Smokey Slate, both light and dark, and even some some Pumpkin Pie, bring on the rust, haha. Remember, to do layers of color! This little truck sure can haul a load of trees too! I am curious … do you do a live tree or a fake?? I am thinking a live tree would be a fun thing this year?? Do you think Joe would go for it?? Hummmm, I wonder? Have a Great Day…

    Birch for winter?

    How about some Christmas inspiration… because the catalog goes live in EIGHT days. This one was from the Stamp-a-Stack a week ago. The Birch (w-149259 c-149256) background was so easy using the Stampuratus (146276). No worries and easy to stamp more then one at a time. The sentiment was from another stamp set. An unlikely choice if I say so myself. Making Christmas Bright (148046), it had the PERFECT font! Add a little glimmer and done! However, what about white shiny ribbon and Real Red glimmer paper?? I wonder?? Do you need a catalog still?? Contact me direct… I will get you one. Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    All about the kitties…

    Mooch would say the best part of this last week was that the windows where open. I would agree, a beautiful breeze and sunshine helps the mood for sure! Here is Mooch taking in some rays old man style!! White Sox would agree with Mooch, now. The leaking water fountain was down for “repairs”. However, the parts were ordered and arrived before the weekend. White Sox was grateful. In conclusion, Miss Penelope, over worked, decided that she needed a rest from her #snoopervisor position. I had to laugh because she is still in the box this evening. Paula, you worked her too hard today! I wonder what antics will happen…

    8/24 Coffee and Cards

    For Coffee and Cards this week, it was about the Marvelous Markers vs. Stampin’ Blends AND Memento vs StazOn. Are you wondering about this too?? Then this is the episode you will want to watch!! However, let us talk about the above cards.. these are the results of us figuring out which goes with what… Confused?? Here is where we started, Marvelous Markers.. they are just like using your colored ink pads.. you can “color” the stamp and then da-duh! Next was water color paper and the aqua painter… It was decided that StazOn was the black of choice, unless you wanted a more no line look like this. Lastly,…

    Rooted in Nature Birthday

    Back to a girls night card from earlier in the month. Paired The Rooted in Nature (146482) with the Itty Bitty Birthday (148618). Used the Nature’s Roots Die (146341) for the old tree. Tried a couple different colors for the tree leaves. Although no matter which colors they turn out different EVERY time! And I love it!! Pick your sentiment … DONE!! I dare you to try the Pear Pizzazz and the Pretty Peacock together!! Ohh, the combo is just royal! For instance, the leaves on the background, beautiful. Check back tomorrow, the Coffee and Cards were not quite done, but will be for tomorrow’s entry. Have a Great Day…
