Triple Thanks Card

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Paper Pumpkin Saturday ........... And I have my last alternate card creation that I made using the July Paper Pumpkin kit.  I added a few extra products found in the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' UP! Catalog to create this card ....... And I'm just thrilled with the way it turned out.  Let me share that card with you now.
Sometimes.......saying thanks just one time isn't enough.....
So I used the thanks sentiment that came in the July Positively Picturesque kit and stamped that sentiment three times.  I used VersaMark ink and Whisper White Embossing Powder on a panel of Tranquil Tide cardstock to really help my sentiment POP!
Next, I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and die-cut a circle from the 'Layering Circles Framelits' that was large enough to showcase my three stamped thanks.  Then I used the burst stamp that came with my July kit and stamped Tranquil Tide burst images all over my Whisper White circle panel.
For a added bit of FUN ...... I added two panels of 'Whole Lot of Loving Designer Series Paper' to the top and bottom of my Whisper White stamped panel.  (Don't forget.......Stampin' UP! is featuring a Buy 3 - Get ONE FREE promotion until the end of October on select Designer Series Paper.  Click my Shop On-Line Now button at the top left hand side of my blog to take advantage of this offer.)
And to finish off my card ...... I wrapped some 1/2" Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon around the bottom of my Whisper White panel.  For a special finishing touch to that ribbon ..... I used some Whisper White Baker's Twine and tied a pretty little bow in the center of my ribbon.
Like I said earlier..........
Sometimes a single thanks just isn't enough!!!!!
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Spot Light Sunday card with you ...... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

The BEST PART is Stampin' UP! is offering a full kit on October 23rd......instead of a refill kit as they normally do for past Paper Pumpkin kits.

That means you will have EVERYTHING you need to complete UNIQUE holiday cards and gifts.  That also means you will have more CREATIVE options and get that handmade holiday touch to everything you make WITHOUT ALL the fuss.

Why Thank You Tag

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Tag Thursday.  Today, I will feature a tag I created and show you how easy it is to use minimal supplies to create a SUPER PRETTY THANKS TAG.  Now that you have the details for this weeks Tag Thursday ....... Let's jump right in with my tag share for today.......
How FABULOUS would this tag look attached to a pretty fall floral arrangement!  That's what I decided to do with this tag.
I started with a Very Vanilla tag and adhered a panel of the new 'Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper' to my tag.  Then I added some 'Linen Thread' around the bottom of my tag and I was well on my way to creating something special.
Next I stamped my DARLING little pumpkin from the 'Gourd Goodness' set onto a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green ink to create this CUTE CUTE little pumpkin.  I tore a small piece of Garden Green cardstock and tucked it at the bottom of my small stamped matted piece and that gave my pumpkin a place to rest.  I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the backside of that piece before adhering it down to my Very Vanilla base tag.
All that was left to do was add a small piece of the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon to the top of my tag ....... And I tied it up with a pretty Linen Thread bow. 
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how this tag turned out....
And can't wait to give it to my sweet friend.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share some Friends Friday creations with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Thank Goodness Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
My blog post for today is Wine-Down Wednesday.  My middle of the week card feature for today will hopefully offer you some inspiration and provide you with some motivation to keep you moving through your busy week.  Let's jump right in with my card share for today........
Check out this OH SO LOVELY card I made.
I began by stamping my sentiment onto a Whisper White panel.  My sentiment came from the new 'Gourd Goodness' set.
Next I used the 'Painted Harvest' set and stamped three leafs from this set.  Then I grabbed the new 'Leaf Punch' and punched out my three stamped leafs .......... And then I matted my three punched out leafs onto a panel of Basic Gray cardstock.
The finishing touch for this quick and easy card was wrapping some Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon around the bottom portion of my card.
I'm just crazy for the way this card turned out .........
And can't wait to try some other color combinations on this layout.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow with a Tag Thursday creation to share with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Halloween Pizza Box

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends
My blog post for today is 3-D Tuesday.  That means today I have a fun little 3-D project to share with you.  This project is SUPER FUN to create and the product is featured in the 2017 Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog.  Let's jump right in with my project share for today.......
These are the Mini Pizza Box treats we made for my 'It's All About Halloween' September Stamp Camp.
And to our surprise.......Each Pizza Box was able to hold TWO YUMMY Rice Krispie Treats.
We used the 'Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper' to cover the top of our Mini Pizza Box ....... and then layered the top with many layers of Black and White cardstock.
Our sentiment was stamped with the 'Spooky Cat' set and layered with the Oval Framelits and the new 'Everyday Label Punch'.
Before we adhered down the sentiment piece, we added some Basic Black Baker's Twine in the center of our layering pieces and then adhered the sentiment piece over the top of the Baker's Twine.
And the final touch was wrapping some Basic Black Baker's Twine around the side of our Mini Pizza Box and we tied it up with a fun bow in the front.
I have to say that my Stamp Camp friends LOVED creating this project ......... And I had a BLAST creating this SUPER FUN Mini Pizza Box project for them.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Down Wednesday card with you ........ Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
