Fall is around the corner

That's right, Fall is just around the corner. The nights, here, are getting chillier and with Fall comes Halloween.

My Granddaughter LOVES Halloween but mostly anything to do with PUMPKINS.

I made this card for her using the Fall Fest stamp set from SU and the Fun Fall Framelits.
I have had a blast using this set.  Actually it comes in a bundle so you can save some money.
The bundle is 137628 and it is $34.75.  If bought separately it would be $40.90.....so you save $6.15.
I also used the stamp set You Little Furball #134150 clear.
The designer paper I used is part of the new Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper in the new holiday catalog.  LOVE this paper.  See the eyes peeking through the trees??

I just cut out the ghost using my framelit and put some eyes on him....and attached him to the card using Wobble Springs (I purchased from Amazon.com)

The cat, I had to fussy cut.....and added him to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The ribbon is not SU....but some cute ribbon I had on hand....and thought it was appropriate with this card.

SIMPLE!!!!  But, I also used this card at a stamping retreat over the weekend and they liked it.

Another thing I have done with the ghost is to cut him out of Glimmer paper and I have also stamped and embossed him.  So much fun!!!

I have more Fall cards to share with you in the upcoming days.

Stay tuned!!

Oh and since it's Tuesday, don't forget to go to my online store and check out the Tuesday specials.  The new heart punch is on sale.  Also, while you are there, check out the new clearance items.

Have a great day!!
And, take time to PawsNStamp

Summertime is.....crazy


 And, Summertime is busy!  And, LAZY!!!  When it's hot outside, I don't have a lot of ambition!!  Just keeping it honest and real ;-)

We don't have Air Conditioning in our home except for a window unit in the bedroom, so when it gets over 80+ outside, it's also about the temperature inside as well.  When we had that couple weeks or so of over 90+ weather, I couldn't even think about making cards in this hot room.

Anyway, I am starting to make cards again and right now am working on the cards for my Card Buffet for September, so I haven't been making many others.

Here is one, that I may have posted awhile back, but it's one of my favorites and SO EASY to put together.  It uses the Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy punch.

The trick is in lining up the stamp and punch.  I found a sort of easy way to accomplish that but you have to do it when you first get your stamp set.

If you use clear mount, you need to do this before you take them out of the rubber tray they come in.  Then, you just mark your punch at the right petal and also the petal on each stamp at exactly the same place.

Hope this works for you!!

Have a great day and remember to take time to Paws N Stamp!!!

YeeHaw it's Tuesday

The "Yeehaw" Photopolymer set is NEW and so stinkin' cute!!You can read all about it here.

It's always good to check the sidebar of my SU website, under New Arrivals, Weekly Deals and Clearance.  You just never know what you are going to find!! Plus, on my home page, it will always update you (if I forget) on any specials they are offering.

This is an exciting month, as SU is offering a FREE bundle when you buy the Big Shot.  Here are the details.  The bundles normally sell for up to $45.75, so that's a huge offer.

You already have a Big Shot? no problem, SU is offering 5 of their bundles at $15% off.

There are just 16 more days and you can order from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I'll be posting some of the cards I have made using a few of the stamps and framelits from that catalog....so you'll have a little sneak peek before it goes live.

Hope you are staying cool and enjoying your summer!!!

Have a great day!!!
And, remember to take time and Paws 2 Stamp!!!

Pumpkins in the night......

Here is the first card I made with one of the new stamp sets from the Holiday mini catalog, that will be available to order from on August 28th!!  It is from a Bundle called, "Fall Fest".  It includes a stamp set and Framelits to match.

Sort of primitive, but it's a 'mock up' of the card that I will be doing with my Granddaughter when she comes to visit in September.

I figured it will be simple enough for her to do....with a little help from Grandma.

You can't really tell from the photo but the ghost is attached to the card using Action Wobble Springs.  I purchased them from Amazon.com.

I used the Fringe scissors to make the 'grass'.

My Granddaughter LOVES pumpkins and going to the Pumpkin Patch, so I need to come up with a Pumpkin Patch card ;-)

Have a great day and remember to take some time to Paws N Stamp!!
