HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

I made this card for my September Card Buffet!  I used the Holiday Home set #135095 in the Holiday catalog.  I just placed a 'moon' mask onto my card stock and then sponged all over the top with several shades of yellow and orange.  Then, I created a yellow moon and placed it so that it peeked from behind the houses

The houses were a snap to cut out with the Framelits that coordinate with the set.  Love, love, love this set!!!

A little layering, a bow...and DONE!!

This is such a fun set to play with. I hope it stays around till the next catalog. I am already working on another card for Christmas.  I want to see if I can create a card for each holiday or season using this set.

Today is the last day to receive the Card Buffet with a $25 order.  Tomorrow, I have a whole new Card Buffet for November.

Oh, and by the way, there is a supplement to the Holiday catalog, that just came out on the 20th of this month and it has some great new items, too, but the products are only available while supplies last.  You can go check it out, HERE.

Have a great day and don't forget to take some time to PawsNStamp!!

Fall is HERE??

I was so happy when I turned the calendar to OCTOBER!!!  YES, Fall...my favorite time of year!!!  But, although the calendar says October, it has still been in the high 80's.  Although, I have to say, I am enjoying the clear blue skies and beautiful weather. 

Having said all of that.....Happy Fall!!!  What do you think of when you think of the word Fall??

My mind automatically goes to cooking, baking, Fall leaves, pumpkins and eventually Thanksgiving.  But, that's moving right along and I'm not ready to be THAT far into Fall, just yet.

I have been busy working on Fall cards and even sneaking in a few Christmas cards, here and there.  I will be focusing mostly on Christmas Cards for my Card Buffet for November and also December.  Read more about my Card Buffet at the top on the Card Buffet tab.
Here is a simple card I made to welcome in Fall.  It is made with the "Holiday Home" bundle in the SU Holiday catalog. 
This bundle is so much fun!!!  I am going to try and come up with a card for every season, using this stamp set and framelits.

The background was made using the little leaf, tree and pumpkin stamps in the set.
And, I LOVE this ribbon!!!  This particular one is called Hello Honey but it also comes in the other "In Colors"; Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist.   
Be watching for more of this set in the near future.

Have a great day!!!!
And, I hope you find time to PawsNstamp.

Exciting news about Blendabilities!!

Welcome to OCTOBER!!!  Can you tell I am excited about FALL??

And, I have some good news to share, as well!!
Stampin' Up! has determined that we can use more than just Memento Black Ink with our Blendabilities.  Check the chart below to see what Classic Ink Pads can also be used to stamp your image.  Note that it is still recommended to use only Whisper White Cardstock.
What Sets Them Apart:
  • The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away.
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Color-coded caps.
  • Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock and can be used with transparent sheets.
Stampin' Blendabilities are designed to work with our Memento Ink Pad. The markers also work well with several of our Classic Stampin' Pads, noted below.

Keep in mind that colors not listed are prone to smearing and aren't recommended for use with Stampin' Blendabilities. Also, remember that you'll get the best blending results using Whisper White Cardstock and when the stamped image is completely dry.
Classic Stampin' Pads
Always Artichoke
Baked Brown Sugar
Blushing Bride
Calypso Coral
Coastal Cabana
Crisp Cantaloupe
Crumb Cake
Crushed Curry
Daffodil Delight
Garden Green
Hello Honey
Marina Mist
Melon Mambo
Lost Lagoon
Old Olive
Pear Pizzazz
Pink Pirouette
Pistachio Pudding
Pool Party
Pumpkin Pie
Sahara Sand
Smoky Slate
So Saffron
Soft Sky
Tangelo Twist
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder
