Embracing the new In Colors!

This is one of the first cards I made using the new in-colors from Stampin' Up! I love having new colors to play with but I really wish they made them in markers too...I'm sure there's a good reason that they don't' but I've always wished for markers. So, for this card I found a way around that problem.....I wanted the flowers to match the new tangerine orange color so I used my aqua painters and the ink pads to color them! Ever done this? It's easy. You just squeeze your ink pad so some of the ink gets up in the lid and then use the aqua painter to pick it up and paint with it! It's that simple. Then you have the ability to color with any color that you only have an ink pad for and not a coordinating marker! I don't know why I didn't think of that before!! The only thing you have to remember is to use a waterproof ink (SU's basic black works) and a good cardstock so it doesn't ripple when you paint on it!

stamps: Embrace Life, Heard from the heart
ink: tangerine tango, basic black
paper: tangerine tango, kiwi kiss, summer sun
other:eyelets, aqua painters, scallop border punch

Spooky Treats Class!

I just finished preparing the projects for my spooky treats class this week! (I know, kind of last minute, but I work well under pressure).

We are going to make the following items in the picture:
  • Tic Tac treat holder
  • Mini box with york peppermint patties
  • Test tube with Reeses pieces
  • Mummy and Frankie mini Hershey bar wraps
  • Mini-Popcorn slider
I'm so excited about Halloween and think these projects turned out super cute!! If you live nearby and want to attend, send me an e-mail!

Meanwhile, I have to husband and I both love Halloween and already started decorating for it. He put up a really cool graveyard in our front yard with gravestones and a fence with orange lights on it. Well, some disrespectful neighborhood kids went by and knocked it all down! Can you believe that? He was so mad. I just think it is so rude for someone to ruin something that is just for fun like that!! Anyway, it's fixable but just annoying that it had to happen, don't you think?

So I've been away...

At least away from blogging.

I know I've been terrible lately at keeping you up to date on what I'm working on. I have been stamping occasionally but my day job has been so busy that I've been working late hours and haven't had much chance to keep up with my blog. That said, I'm hoping to have more time in the next few weeks to show you stuff! I have some really cute halloween stuff planned so stay tuned...

meanwhile, for those of you who live near me, here's a couple of reminders...

THIS SATURDAY, September 27th, from 9:30am–2:30pm!
Stampin' & Scrapbooking Garage Sale at my place.

I will have lots of gently used rubber stamps and scrapbooking supplies at great discounted prices. There will be some Stampin' Up! Product, along with other brands of stuff that I just don't use anymore...I've been cleaning out my closets to make room for new stuff!

I do have room for more stuff so If you have stuff you'd like to get rid of, please contact me by Thursday and we can arrange to have it added to my sale (you get credit towards the new catalog if someone purchases your stuff). Call or e-mail me for details.
