Too early for Halloween??

Maybe, but I just had to play with my new stamp set from the Holiday Mini!!!  Tkfitehalloween This is the Autumn Harvest set!  It's a very versatile set, as the pumpkins can be used for general "fall" type cards, but the little pumpkin face is included in the set as well!! 

Colors are Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black.  I stamped the pumpkins with Black Stazon, then colored in with the Watercolor Crayons, then blended with the Aqua painter.  The "Happy Halloween" is from the All Holidays stamp set, and is stamped in white craft ink.

Happy stamping!!!

Added Photos!!

Good evening!!  My card club met Friday evening, and I've finally gotten the cards uploaded.  You can find them in the "Card Club" photo album on the right!!!

Happy Stamping!

p.s.  These are not all my original designs!!!  I do CASE alot, and some of these cards are the result of that!!  I'm sorry I don't know where all the inspiration came from!!

Another beautiful Swap!

Jenniswapaug Don't you just love the Elegant Eggplant!!?  Jenni made this beautiful card using the Year after Year stamp set and the gorgeous Floral background stamp!  She used Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black and Very Vanilla cardstock.  The cake was stamped in black and watercolored with eggplant.  Then, she applied Crystal Effects with some glitter!!  Very pretty effect!

Happy Stamping!

Group Swaps

We had our group meeting on Monday night--it's always so much fun!!  I really love this group of gals--we all have fun together, and laugh alot!!  I taught them the Split Negative technique (see previous post), and then we discussed our upcoming stamp camp!  It's going to be a good one--make sure you mark Nov 3 on your calendars!!! 

We also do a swap, and here's one of the beautiful cards I received:

Reesswapaug It was stamped by Rees--she's very talented!!  The colors are groovy guava, apricot appeal and basic black.  There's glitter on the center of the flower--love glitter!!!!

Hope you're all having a great day!

and, another Baroque Motifs!!!

Barmotfite Yes, it's another card made with the Baroque Motifs stamp set!!  I hope you aren't tired of seeing this set!! 

This time, I decided to try some softer colors (rather than pomegranate!!), and went with Soft Sky and Groovy Guava!  I like these two together!!  I also used one of our new rhinestone brads, in blue.  These are so pretty, and add just the right touch of "bling" to a card!  This one is simple, but sweet, I think. 

Happy Stamping!!

Swap Cards!!

Good morning!!  I have been working hard all morning!  My stamp club is this afternoon, so I've been finalizing our projects for that--I'll post those tomorrow!!  We're doing two cards using the Split Negative technique!!  Tune in tomorrow for pictures!!

I also have a downline meeting tomorrow night.  I had to make some swap cards, and these are what I came up with:

Augswap1 All were made using the Build A Flower Accents & Elements!!  Colors are Wild Wasabi, Rose Red and Lovely Lilac!!
