October swap and goodies....

Wow haven't been on my blog for a while. I finally finished my Halloween card swaps but now in the process of finishing my Halloween centerpieces. I have this weekend to finish up and 11 more to go. Isn't this first card cute? I used the marvy halloween ghost and bat punch that I bought from Fisher Hawaii for both cards. I also colored Kiyomi from Sister Stamps for my second card. Yay it's finally the end of the week and hope you all have a great weekend and a fun Halloween! Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations!!

This next picture is some halloween goodies that include anti-bacterial hand gel. I used Trevor and Swiss Pixie from CC Designs and colored them on Adobe Photoshop instead of coloring it individually.
Here are the centerpieces that I am currently working on and are filled to the top with candies. I originally saw a picture of a really small version about 3" tall and decided to see if I could make it bigger for a centerpiece. Its about 7" tall and the rim of the hat is 6.5" wide. The black hat is removable and can be used as a cover when the candies are taken out.


September CATS

So I decided to make another vintage card but made this one simple. My partner for the month of September was Joni. Check out her creations here! I used Chloe from Pink Gem Designs. I think the theme for the month of September was to use flowers in our card and tag creation. I made the lace flower and added a pearl in the center. I was still in the vintage card mode so I created this simple card. Well it's simple to me considering the previous one that I did. I wanted to keep the card but actually swapped it with a co-worker who loved it too. I'm glad she picked my name. Thanks for stopping by again to check my creations. Have a Great Week!


Vintage Card

Sorry this is a long post...I've always wanted to try and make a vintage card but never got the chance until this weekend. I came across another card but can't remember which site it was. I made it sort of similar to it but it wasn't a vintage card like I wanted so I had to change the colors from whatever colors that I had and create something of my own. It wasn't easy coloring the image "Pink Gem Designs" (Chloe) as I tried it twice and trashed the first image because I didn't like the colors. I used Tim Holt distress ink - "Tattered Rose"- and Stampin Up - "Soft Suede" colors for the edges of the whole card. The DP is from K&Company thatI picked up in Las Vegas. I made most of the roses from ribbon except the smaller ones. The bows are "Very Vanilla" seam binding from Stampin Up. The butterflies are Martha Stewart and CherryLyn Designs dies that I ordered online. I also used liquid pearls "white opal" on the butterflies. Thiscard turned out really special that I want to keep it for myself. Unfortunately, I can't because we have a card swap for a bunch (12) of my co-workers and on Monday 10/3 is when we are going to swap cards by picking names. If I pick my own name YAY!!! I get to keep it....lol!! I hope whomever gets it will like this card. Thank you all for stopping by to check out my creations. Your support is very much appreciated! Have a Great Week!!
