Halloween Bookmark

I made this cute Halloween Bookmark at my friend, Kim's house.  Oh, this would be so cute to have in one of my scary books.  In fact, it would be cute to have in any of my books.  What am I thinking?  I will have to give it to the boys, since I got a Kindle.  Oh, I could put it in the Halloween gift for one of the teachers at Westgate.  Now, I am thinking!

I stamped the image from Festive & Fun stamp set (Holiday Mini) in black Staz On and used ink and a water brush to watercolor it.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot with an Impressions Folder.  To make the raised dots show better, I brushed an ink pad lightly over them.  Oh, so cute!

Beautiful Thank You

I made this beautiful card at my friend, Kim's a couple of weeks ago.  She had everything cut and ready to go for us at her workshop.  I love this technique with the Impressions Folder.

You put ink on the folder and then put your paper into the folder and run it through the Big Shot.  The ink does not go into the impression, so it leaves it the color of the paper while turning the paper the color of the ink you use.  Soft and pretty!

I have to confess that her card had a beautiful bow on it and my bow looked terrible, so I put a flower on mine when I got home.  Hee hee!  I do not tie pretty bows, so I had to improvise.

bird house

Look at this cute little bird house my friend, Kim made me.  Love it!

Simply Sent

I love the Simply Sent sets in the Stampin' Up! catalog starting on page 192.  When you need a card, but don't have the time to make one these are the best.  This one is from the Great Day set.  All I added was a dimensional to the pink flower, the button with white bakers twine and the ribbon.  The stamping was done from me.  These sets even come with envelopes.

You can stamp a sentiment on the front.  I decided to leave mine card blank, so I can use it for any occasion.

Birthday Envelope

Isn't this soooo cool!?  I love this card that sits inside an envelope.  I made this at my friend, Kim's house.  For the envelope, I closed it and punch out the top with a circle punch.  You only use about 2/3 to 1/2 of the circle.  Cute, cute, cute!
