Holiday Kit Card

I've recently joined The Stamps Of Life kit club.  I love her products and couldn't wait to get my hands on her kits.  They come with so much wonderful products!  The kits are created to make you the designer.  There is a sample card but you create what ever your heart desires.  This took a little getting used to as I've never been in a club that worked like that but now I'm loving it!!

The September kit was all about Christmas.  It came with so many different cute embellishments, a stamp set, die, cardstock, envelopes, ribbon and really cute patterned paper. 

I decided to create a flip it card using the new Regal flip-its.  These are so much fun to work with and have so many different possibilities!

Halloween Invite

This year I decided I wanted to have a Halloween party.  I love Halloween but have usually kept it just for the kids so this is the first time I've needed an invite!  I had a lot of fun creating this.  I used a sketch from Stick it Down to help get the creativity flowing.

Its a really fun sketch, and the only thing I wish I'd done differently is make the one panel larger.  I feel there is to much space left at the bottom.

SS: bite me, your invited
INK: tuxedo black
CS: pumpkin pie, old olive, basic grey, whisper white, rich razzleberry, witches brew dsp
ACCESS: orange twine, orange mesh, word window punch, pumpkin punch, modern label punch

Trick Or Treat with a Sketch

So this didn't turn out quite like I wanted.  It started out as an invitation but I decided it would be way to much coloring lol.  So I changed it to a challenge card.  I incorporated Try Stampin' On Tuesday's challenge this week. 
SS: various stamps by Judith, bite me
INK: tombo markers, black tuxedo ink, orange chalk ink
CS: tangerine tango, basic black, whisper white
ACCESS: bitty banner dies, hemp twine, 1" & 1 1/4" circle punches

Sept Card Kit

I don't usually join card or scrapbook kits of the month clubs but I love getting The Stamps of Life stamps and dies each month and couldn't pass up the chance to get her card kits.  In order to sign up you had to be a stamp or die hard club member.  I am both and couldn't wait to get my hands on this kit!

I missed out on the first month due to limited quantities so I was so excited when I received the email for the September kit telling me I was in!! Getting this box was like Christmas morning.  So many wonderful things inside and endless possibilities. 

This kit comes with everything you need to create up to 12 cards and doesn't have any directions.  Instead you have all the tools to be completely 100% original.  I wasn't sure how I'd like that at first but once I got going it's a lot of fun.

Here is the first card I've created with this great Christmas themed kit. I used a framelit flipit from The Stamps of life as well.  It's the only item I used that didn't come in the kit.

Nerdy Girl

I love this stamp set that I used on this card.  I haven't used it yet because I wasn't to confident in my coloring skills.  So today I just decided, what the heck, and started coloring.  I really am happy with the result and am looking forward to the next card!! 

I used the sketch over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday for this card.

SS: nerdy girl
INK: tuxedo black, tombo alcohol markers

Oh Happy Day

Good morning and Happy Friday!  Today is a perfect day to craft in my neck of the woods.  It's a bit chilly and cloudy.  Looks like more rain is headed our way.

I decided to create a birthday card today for the challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  I combined it with a great sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!  I did something a little different this time.  I decided to get all the elements stamped and cut out BEFORE adhering anything down.  This gave me the opportunity to make sure I liked the way it was going.  I usually tape first and decide later.  Not the best way to go about it lol.

The challenge at Seize the Birthday is always anything goes birthday but this time the "topping" is "Sweet Treats".  I decided on using cupcakes as my "sweets"

Here is the sketch I used
SS: cricut artiste collection birthday
INK: tangerine tango, crushed curry, pistachio pudding
CS: crushed curry, whisper white, confetti celebration dsp
ACCESS: regals & brights candy dots, basic jewel rhinestones
TECH: fussy cutting
