Novembers Challege Card

Here is my card from our November challenge. The requirements were black and white with one other color, and it had to be a Christmas Theme. I used all SU! product...as usual! The word Christmas is from the set heard from the heart-and I cut it out, then dasher is in the center. I used serene snowflakes punched out. The colors are whisper white, basic black, and melon mambo.

October challenge card

Every month for the crazy stampin lady meeting we have a challenge card. Here is mine. the rules were fall colors, fall theme, no black, square card, must use a roller, must use textured paper and at least one button-I know its alot, but at least the card is cute!


Here is a card I made of SU! card stock-"sparkle" is from the warm words stamp set. This is a thank you to a friend of mine who gave me a ticket to take the girls to see the movie at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood.


ELMO! We were recently invited to a birthday party for a very good friend of mine-daughter. She is having an Elmo theme, so I figured I would make a bag and tag to match her day! I used SU!

punches for the eyes and cut out the rest, then sponged around his face to give some dimension.... Here is the finished product!

October Stamp Club projects

Every month I meet with a great group. They spend $25.00 in merchandise and do two projects for free. They also rotate who gets the hostess benefits! Here is some pictures of last months group projects...

The first project was a rosette favor box. It is great simple box that fits 3x3 cards or some candy! We made the rosette from the new Autumn Meadows DSP from SU! Then stamped the "Give Thanks" from the level 1 hostess set Holiday Best.

This is the card we made, they have the choice to make a card and envelope or a 12x12 scrapbook page. I always do some sort of technique on one of the projects, so this month I did shadowing on the big shot letters. I just took a picture of the card, but I will remember next month to take a picture of both!
