Halloween’s Coming Up

I haven’t had a chance to make many cards lately, and I’m horribly behind in sending cards out.  But I did manage to make some Halloween cards a couple of weeks ago, and here is a picture:

Card_Halloween2014It was really a simple one, especially considering that I used the pre-cut and scored card bases.  I think it turned out cute, though, and I hope to get them all in the mail this week!  Happy Halloween!

Happy International Rabbit Day!

Saturday, September 27 is International Rabbit Day! I know this because it is the holiday we are sending cards for this month in my Holiday Cards Swap group on Ravelry.  In honor of this obscure holiday, my cards this week feature a cute little bunny and more washi tape.  I can’t get enough of washi tape on cards lately!  This was an easy card, and I’m happy that it includes some products that I haven’t had a chance to use that much yet.

Sparkle Tag

I meant to post this last Monday — oops!  This is the card I made last weekend.  I really wanted to use some of the new washi tape and the scalloped tag topper punch.  Oh, and the new “Good Greetings” stamp set has this stamp Sparkle, which I LOVE!  I couldn’t wait to use it.  So here is the design; it’s simple yet I think it turned out kind of elegant.  Hope you like it!

Fall Colors!

The theme for our September workshop was Fall Colors!  With the cooler weather we’ve been having, it is feeling more and more like fall.  Soon the leaves will be turning all the beautiful, brilliant colors that were featured in this month’s cards:  orange, yellow, gold, green, purple.  This time we played with not only vibrant colors but also some new stamp sets that are in the holiday mini-catalog.  So much fun!

Cards_9.13.14_WorkshopI hope you had as much fun on Saturday as I did!  I’m looking forward to next month’s workshop.  What will our theme be for October?  You’ll have to wait to find out!  :)

Rainy Inspiration

Hi Everyone!  It’s been raining and thunderstorming for the past two days, so we are a little soggy.  This morning I was struggling to come up with a card design, when suddenly I spotted this Sunshine and Sprinkles designer series paper.  It is a retired paper, but the umbrellas really inspired me and I decided to use some of it up.  So here is this week’s card:
