Winner, More Halloween, and new stamp

First of all the winner of the drawing this month was Debbe. 
From now until the next Stamp Along, the comments will be in the drawing. 

I saw this card on a blog and saved it to copy. Now, I can't read the name so can't give credit for it.
Isn't it cute? 

Below is my version. 
I did these two cards with the guests at the workshop last night. 
They seemed to enjoy doing them. 

Here are a few more pictures of the process of making the cute little pop up center of the Halloween card. These cards are a little too complicated to do at the Stamp Along but I love doing this kind. 
If you do too, let's do a workshop together! 

This is a new release that is available now. 
It is called Gentle Peace. It is photopolymer and is $15.95. 
It will be a good one to use with the blendabilities for a beautiful stained glass look. 
The recommended block sizes that you need are A, F, and H. They are not included. 
I hope to have a card using this set at the next Stamp Along so will be placing an order this weekend. 
If you would like this set, let me know and I will order one for you. The total cost would be $18.43. 
Email me before 5:00 on Sunday and I'll get you one for $17. Just remind me that you saw it here. 

Here is a sample from the SU! website.

Halloween and Stamp Along

I love Halloween cards! 
This little ghost from Fall Fest reminds me of Casper the Friendly Ghost. Do you remember Casper? 

Not everyone sends Halloween cards so I have a selection of Birthday, Thinking of you, and other cards ready for you to make at the Stamp Along. 

Isn't this little bird house cute? I saw it on someone's blog but I don't remember which one. 
It is made with the What's Up punch. 
Hope you can come and make one of these.

Stampin' Up! Work of Art

The Work of Art set is WONDERFUL! 
if you don't have it yet, you need it! 
Here are the ten cards that were presented in the class I did recently.
There are many more that I could have done. This set just keeps on giving! 

Here are the same ten cards in two pictures so you can see them a little better. 
Many of them require the same stamp used several times, in different colors, on the same card. 
That is possible when everyone has their own stamp set there. 

Some of these cards may show up at the Stamp Along in the future. 
There are several that use the stamp without switching color and those are the ones that could go to the Stamp Along. 
Which ones would you like me to have at the Stamp Along? 
Let me know!

The winner of the drawing last time was Dorothy. 
You could be the winner next month. 
Be sure to leave a comment so your name can get in the drawing. 
All comments between now and October 12th will be in the next drawing. 
I have another similar journal to give away in October. 
Will you be the winner? 

The hostess code for on line orders this month is 
Thank you in advance for any order! 
I appreciate you so much!

Border size makes a difference!

These four cards are the same except for the size of the borders. 
They sure have a different look though, don't they? 
Which one do you like the best? 

They all use the Sweet Taffy DSP along with a Daffodile Delight card base and Tangelo Twist layer except the one on the lower left that doesn't have the Tangelo Twist layer. 
The Flower Shop set and Pansy punch along with Petite Petals set and the Petite Petal punch were used for the flowers. The Artisan Label punch was used for the saying. 
Please leave a comment telling me which one you think will show up at the Stamp Along.
I have another little journal to give away to the winner of the drawing this month. 

If you need some stamping supplies and can't make it to the Stamp Along please use the hostess code
This links your order to the Stamp Along order to increase the total. That helps me get more goodies. If you don't link it the "goodie" potential is lost.  :-(

Stampin' Up! Halloween

Fall is my favorite season! 
There are so many fun cards to make at this time of the year. 
Here is another one that is coming to the Stamp Along next Monday. 

This little ghost is so cute. It reminds me of Casper, the Friendly Ghost! 
It is so easy to cut the ghost and pumpkin with the matching framelits! The set is photopolymer and is called Fall Fest. The matching framelits are Fun Fall and you can get them together in a bundle and save 15%.  The BOO is also cut with the Little Letters framelits. It is a little challenging to get the middle parts of the letters raised with dimensionals but so worth it and, since the framelits did the cutting, there was time for that. It would look nice without the insides in the letters also. 
The saying is from Mingle all the Way set. It has four other sayings that will take you through New Years! You can find all of these in the Holiday mini catalog. If you need one of the catalogs, let me know or pick one up at the Stamp Along. 
Do you send cards for Halloween?

Stampin' Up! cute.

Isn't that guy cute?
I didn't like that mustache framelit until I saw this card idea over on Deb Valder's blog. I did get it because I intended to use it for hair with punch art. Just another example of seeing it and having to have it! He is so cute and would make a masculine card for almost any occasion. Do you need a masculine card? This one will be at the Stamp Along in September. It also uses a neat technique that you will be able to use with many other stamps. 

The Thankful card could be used for a thank you at any time but especially in the fall. 
Could also be a good  Thanksgiving card. Do you send cards for Thanksgiving? 

Remember to leave a comment to get in the drawing for a little prize this month. 
If you come to the Stamp Along, you will get free shipping on any order that you place there but if you can't come and  you need some product, please order from my on line store and use this code: 
That will link your order to the Stamp Along order. It will still be sent directly to you but helps me to be able to give you goodies from time to time.

Stampin' Up! wedding card and Work of Art creation

Two choices for using the Label flip card framelit die for a wedding card. 
The main difference is the sayings but the second one has more embellishments on it also. 

This pix shows the inside of the above cards. 
These will be at the Stamp Along next Monday. 
Do you need a wedding card soon?
The addition of the finishing touch edgelits die, the Papillon Potpourri and Petite Petals sets along with the punches really dress this card up! 

I have seen so many wonderful designs done with the Work of Art set! 
I have been playing with it and designing the cards for the class that I have coming up on the 11th. 
I haven't seen this one but it sure worked as the stamps hit the ink and then the card stock! 
I love when that happens! 
Any of you Red Hatters want this one to come to the Stamp Along?
Let me know.
