Today's card was created using a set called, "Mingle All the Way".  This set includes stamps for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's.  Keep an eye on my blog for plenty of ideas on how useful this set will be.

Here is a quick card that you easily create for your own Holiday cards this year!


  1. Cut Crumb Cake card stock to 4.25" x 11"; score at 5.5"
  2. Cut your designer paper to 3.5" x 4" and adhere to card base
  3. Tie ribbon in a knot around the card covering the top of the designer paper
  4. Stamp image onto Very Vanilla card stock with Jet Black Staz-On
  5. Die-cut image with the Banners Framelits
  6. Color image with Blendabilities (or markers)
  7. Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals 
  8. Stamp the "Wishing You Holiday Cheer....." in the inside of the card with Staz-On.  I colored my olive green with a Blendabilities marker.
Step it up: Add a bit more coloring and then take it to yet another level when you add GLITTER!!

Glitter = Instant Fabulousness!!

My Paper Pumpkin Projects--Finished! Stampin' News!

Welcome to a new week!  Do you ever need a break?  I know that when I accomplish something and it turns out to be something so cute I feel happy.  I feel like a bit of stress has escaped me.  I felt those things when I completed this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  So cute, trendy, and quick=a happy stamper!

Here is just a peek at what I made with the August kit:

I created 4 full sized greeting cards that will be perfect for some upcoming birthday's and 4 gift sized cards. While the small cards are great to top a present I was thinking that they will make cute lunch box notes for my kiddos!  They will love them.  Do you remember when your mom (or dad-mine didn't, lol) would send you a little note with maybe a surprise candy?  Ohh, I loved it and have continued the tradition with my little ones.

I have pieces left over to make MORE cards plus I can use the stamps on MANY other projects to come!

Hmmm, I wonder what is in store for us in September??  Your kits include everything you need for your projects. The only thing you might ever need is adhesive and scissors.  This month they even included glue dots and dimensionals so I did not need anthing else!

If you are a NEW subscriber and sign up by September 10th you will receive TWO months at 50% off! YOU can get for September AND October Paper Pumpkin Kits shipped to your door  for only $9.95+tax each month.  Now is the time to try it out!  EMAIL ME with any questions.  SIGN UP now!

Have a great Monday!!
