Happy Halloween to My Little Pumpkin, Theä!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted! Shame on me!! But I’m posting today! On a personal note, I’ve been having a few health problems which has landed me in the ER four times in the past four months, including this month (along with an Urgent Care visit). I’m doing okay for now but hoping that someone can fix me at some point! LOL! I still have another procedure to get through and then go from there. Moving on to a much happier topic . . . (BE SURE TO SEE SPECIAL AT BOTTOM OF POST!)

I made the cutest Halloween Card for my “Little Pumpkin”! Theä is my granddaughter who is 2 1/2 years old. She is in Texas and I’m in Illinois! I’m from Texas as well as my entire family of many generations. My husband (who is from Illinois) and I moved to IL on May 12, 2008. We haven’t got to spend a lot of time with Theä since she was born but I’m so thankful for Face Book and FaceTime! I’ll include some pictures of her in her Wonder Woman costume for Halloween. But first let me share my card I made for her. I usually refer to her as my “Little Pumpkin” when I’m talking to her so I just loved how my card turned out.

2016-10-31-theas-halloween-card

I also made Halloween Tags for treat bags that my daughter, Tenaya, bought for Halloween goodies. These treat bags were for Theä’s classmates at her school she attends two days a week. These tags were so much fun to make!! I used Jar of Haunts Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog as well as the Jar of Love Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog. I used the large jar from the Jar of Love. There is SO MUCH you can do with these two stamp set including the coordinating framlits!

For the tags I used Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers for Candy Corn in the jar. I also used Pumpkin Pie marker for the “dripping goo”.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals under the front jar with the pumpkin face on it.

Here are pictures that Tenaya sent me after receiving Theä’s Halloween Card & Tags!

Every Blessing Christmas Card

2016.8.29 Every Blessing Christmas Card

Yes, it’s that time when we card makers need to be thinking ahead about our Christmas cards. This Christmas card design is for my MIL. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and better yet, she LOVES it as well. Yeah! I used her stamp set, Every Blessing, which is retired from the last Annual Catalog 2015-2016. I used Gold Vellum card stock from Hobby Lobby since Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry that item. I embossed it using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love how it turned out! I also used Gold Glitz Dazzling Details in the middle of the star. Believe me, it looks stunning in person! (If you are interested in the stamp set, you could check on eBay for availability.)

Here is an image of the Every Blessing Stamp Set . . .

Happy Birthday Travis & PP308 Color Challenge

2016.8.18 Stars Happy Bday

Happy birthday to my nephew, Travis! He is just one of three sons to my twin brother, Tony. Yes, I have a twin brother! It’s back to school on Monday for Travis so I LOVE these bright, cheery “Back to School” colors in The Paper Players Color Challenge! Check out the other great cards by the Design Team and other participates!

2016.8.18_pp308

After I had made Travis’ card, I made another one but I didn’t use the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. It’s very CAS (Clean and Simple). It just shows you how you can step up a card by adding something as simple as some textured embossing!
