Fall/Halloween Treat Box

Is this not just the CUTEST!!! This is a pattern from Doodle Pantry digi images and I love everything they have!!! This box is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square - folds flat for mailing - although you have to include the treats - and isn't it cute. I used an image from Mabelle at Whismy and Stars Studio called Pumpkin Kitty - isn't it the cutest and then had some DP in my Halloween stash with candy corn - which worked out perfect. Tied together with Lemonade bakers twine and then filled the tray with Autumn Mix which included candy corn, pumpkins, etc. How cool will this look on my desk at work??? I have several printed out to make to send to family and some of my chemo patients.

Amuse Butterfly

Here is a really quick card I made for a friend who is going through a difficult journey right now and talk about easy peasy. The other day my friend and stamping bud Patti was here and we were looking over my starter kit and she inked up the butterfly in pink pigment (love love love the Amuse pigment inks) and then took the polka dot stamp also Amuse and "kissed" it taking off some of the ink. don't you just love the result. Cut out with an oval nestie - then followed through with the polka dot on the bottom in same pink ink. Since I don't have very many colored cs yet from Amuse I used some I had in my stash and it matched very well. The thinking of you is also a very nice sentiment included in the starter kit. In 10 min. I had my card ready to mail.

This is my first Halloween post for this year and I used a CTMH (Close to my Heart stamp set - which my stamping bud and friend "share". We just live a few miles apart and decided to pool resources and share some of the special holiday stamp sets. I was first to use this witch set and don't you just love her??? I used a middle step card pattern (which is so easy and adaptable to almost image), my paper was from my scrap box - and used the MS goo punch for the border - cute cute. Hope you enjoy and now my friend Patti will create with her.

Favorite Set Swap

These are 2 of my cards I choose to do for the favorite Set Swap from the Angel Company (which has now closed) - I choose Apple of my Eye designed by Mabelle - not only a great designer but a great person - the bear was done with a child in mind - ( I have a little 10 year old girl that received a heart/lung transplant a few weeks ago), and the basket of apples was just to "enhance" my coloring with copic skills (LOL). I like how both of these cards turned out and had so much fun creating them. I hope whoever gets my swap cards will be happy with my creation.

Amuse Starter Kit Card

I got my starter kit from Amuse when the big brown UPS truck pulled down my drive way - as he stood at the door with my 2 huge girl dogs threating him he said "I'll just leave it here on the porch for you"!!!, for some reason my girls hate brown. A quick slash of the packing tape with my exacto knife and I was ready to unpack - oh my - I got the $99 starter kit and although I am kind of wishing I had gotten the $149 I am totally happy with what I got, not only how much but the quality. Love the rubber - open the dvd case it comes in and with a light push the image is ready to put on a block and stamp, already indexed, stamped image with bubblegum/grass pigment ink (very nice) and stamped on white, cut out with scallop circle nestie then made my card on sage cs and cut out the card with my lg. scallop nestie die, white on the inside, again very nice. Had to add a bit of bling, clear bling colored with copic and card is ready to do.

Teddy Bear Day

Friday Sept 9 is TEDDY BEAR DAY so I thought of this darling teddy girl from TAC - colored her with Copic Markers - (still working on creating fur like texture) paper pieced her bow with Basic Grey Paper - coloerd the dainty flowers in her head band with Atyou Glitter Markers and fussy cut her and mounted her on circles cut with my nesties. How much fun is she - my dear granddaughter will get her a day or two late but she will still enjoy.

DPDC16 Noahs Ark

This week over at Doodle Pantry the challenge is to use any Doodle Pantry digi image. Well I have several but I had not yet used Noahs Ark - which is precolored (love it) and ready to go. I used a middle step card design - printed out my digi image, added some polka dotted DP (source unknown) on the sides and bottom, then decided to use my punch Treading Waters to punch a border and it worked perfect!!. I love the results!!

Brandy and Emma

As some of you know I am a Chemo Angel - and we got a "special request for a gentleman that "loves" dog and needed some cheer so I immediately thought of the dog from Brandy and Emma - colored with Copics (HELP - I need suggestions with coloring lifelike animals), cut with nesties, DP is from DCWV - Pet Stack - some brown grograin ribon from my stash and the card was complete. On the outside I put Smile and the inside said "I do that when I think of you". There are so many sentiments from TAC that are so appropriate in special situations, I will surely miss them. I am sending this guy a pic of my 2 "BIG" girl dogs and I know he will smile!!!
