My Gift for Our Christmas Party

I made this adorable (if I do say so myself) cup carrier for my up lines Christmas party. I used 2 Kraft boxes and sticky stripped them back to back and decorated them from there. The cups are filled with single coffee packs and chocolate, of course. I hope they like it.
I cased the idea from a blog named For the Love of Paper.

Halloween Cards

I was just playing around with some Halloween stamp sets and made a few cards. Here they are....
Stamp set: Wicked Cool

Stamp set: Toxic Treats

Stamp set: Tricky Treats

Thanks for stopping by!

Tricky Treats Petite Purse Box

The final project for my club to create is this adorable "petite" box for Halloween treats. I used the Petite Purse die and just snipped off the flap of the purse. I stamped the ghost in Calypso Coral and used my blender pen to take off the mask and then added the black mask with a Basic Black marker. It is the punched out with Curvy Label punch and adhered with a glue dot to the Silver Glimmer paper which is punched out with the Decorative Label punch.
The candy inside is in our cellophane bag and tied off with some Ruffled Calypso Coral ribbon.
I think these will be used for my daughter's Halloween party at school this month. 
They are super fast to make!

French Foliage

I am so happy my club starts back up this month. I missed playing in my scrap room. I was looking at a few blogs that I enjoy and this technique really seemed cool. So, thank you DOstamping. This card uses an embossing folder in a unique way and you don't need a Big Shot to make this card.
The background isn't a stamp is an embossing folder. It has versamark on the folder and you use a brayer to make the color come to life. It is very cool, I think.

Another Valentine's Day Card

My husband's co-worker saw some of my cards and wondered if I could make a card for his wife using red roses. And here is what I came up with....
The sentiment is from a retired stamp set and the ribbon is retired but the rest is current. The stamp set I used for the red roses is Flower Fest.

And here's the inside...
I stamped the rose all over the inside and on the bottom of the front with VersaMark and unfortunately it doesn't show up in the picture.
Enjoy your day, Cindy
