halloween card-001

So, I’ve mostly packed our stuff up for our trip back to Delaware, and I thought that I would make a quick CAS (clean & simple) card on My Digital Studio (MDS).  Well, it was quick to make and Halloween cards are not my thing, so I’m not sure how I feel about it.  It’s okay.  I do like that I could get the little pumpkins whatever size I wanted.  That is just one of the many awesome features to MDS and having your stamp images in an electronic version.  So, what do you think?

Stamps:  Pumpkin Patch (MDS digital image), Eat, Drink & Be Scary (MDS digital image), Torn Edges (MDS digital image)
Paper:  All MDS papers/CS – Pumpkin Pie, Lovely Lilac, Old Olive and Whisper White CS, Cast-a-Spell DSP

This happy little card was fairly simple to make and I think it turned out very cute.  It would be a nice one to give to the friends, teachers, family, etc. in your life if you just want to give them a little note to bring a smile to their face.

I hope you like it, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where a pumpkin becomes a flower.  This further demonstrates that this “Halloween” stamp set really has a versatility that your creativity can increase exponentially.

I got to stamp yesterday with a friend!!!  I finished 3 whole projects – I am a SLOW stamper and add in gabbing with another chica, and it makes for some REALLY slow stamping 😉

I made this little treat packet as the “prototype” for the treats I will have my daughter take in to her class for Halloween.  I pulled the inner tab out a little bit to the right so that you could see that I made a sliding panel so that the kids can just pull it out and have quick, non-ripping-up-the-whole-treat-package-up access to the candy corn inside the sweet treat cup.  Normally the ribbon would be peeking out from the right side of the stamped image – not the Only Orange CS and brad.

Did you know that you get TWELVE of these fantastic sweet treat cups on a package for only $2.95?!?!?  They are a deal and they make adorable packaging for treats of all kinds.

Below you can see the images of the stamps that come in this fabulous stamp set called Sweet Centers (#116521, $29.95).  The Sweet Centers stamp set makes it easy to create ornaments, treat bags, cards, and more. Combine it with the Sizzix® Holiday Windows die and Sweet Treat cups for even greater results!

Have a great day!!!!

Stamps:  Sweet Centers
Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, Only Orange and Whisper White CS
Ink:  Only Orange classic ink
Accessories:  1-3/4″ Circle punch, Black gingham ribbon, silver brad, Sweet Treat cup

If you live in the Dover (Delaware) area, I was given the fabulous idea by Julie Wadlinger to have a class where you make the little bags you see below. 

I will also be showing the new My Digial Studio papercrafting software (think digital scrapbooking on steroids!!!  LOL) with those who would like to create one project (a card or single scrapbook LO page) and bring an electronic copy of a picture on CD or zip drive, etc.  You will then be able to order the print of your project through SU!’s fabulous print vendor or you can take it home and print it out how you prefer. 

Additionally, you will make a 3×3 Halloween card using some of SU!’s new Halloween stamps from the Holiday Mini Catalog. 

Let me know if you can join us – seats are limited and there is a RSVP-by date.  I would love to see you here!!

First – still no resolution (pun intended) on the picture issue with Typepad.  I still can't insert my pictures as they are originally saved on my computer after editing them.  So, I have to insert lower-quality (lower resolution) pictures so that the file is small enough to upload.  It's really annoying because you all can't see the difference, but I can, and the original pictures are so much more sharp and detailed.  Oh well….hopefully they'll fix the bug soon!!!

DSCN4724 If you remember, I shared with you Kerry's Pumpkin Poop a few posts ago.  Well, I decided it would be a really fun Stamp Camp project, so this is mine.  You can click on the thumbnail to the left to see it up-close.  I ran out of the polka-dot ribbon that my guests used, so mine has some of the gingham ribbon that is SU!'s on it and I wish I had thought of it first instead of using the Wally-World B&W polka-dot ribbon.  I think the grosgrain is just right for this little treat.  I also wanted to incorporate the SU!'s EXCLUSIVE Top Note Bigz Die because I LOVE IT and why not!?!?!  Hope you like it!!!

Stamps:  Batty for You
Paper:  Basic Black, Summer Sun, Only Orange and Whisper White CS
Ink:  Only Orange and Basic Black markers
