Halloween tag card

Wendy Buttke made this tag card with Crackerbox Palace stamps.
The black card stock is cut 4 1/4 X 11.  It is folded at 5 1/2. 
Make the tag and lay it beside the black card stock and mark where you would like to cut it so the saying is above the cut line.
A strip of purple card stock is used behind the ribbon on the front.
Thanks for stopping in and looking.

Sweet Lady in Red

Lois Larson made this card. She used Crackebox Palace stamps.
On the chocolates she used brown applique.  All she did was apply the applique to the the candy and let it dry.  Usually you heat the applique to make it puff up, we found when you just let it dry, it dries very shinny.
Thanks for looking and have a sweet day.

Thinking of you with quilling flowers

This is one of our sayings I used. 
The flowers are the new quilling flowers from Cuttlebug.  I liked the looks of quilling, but was never interested in doing it until now.  It is so easy and I like the 3D flowers.  With having all 3 flowers I am able to mix and match what the flower looks like.  I like using it with printed paper and some of my scraps that I have stamped on and cut out.

This is another card I did in Chicago when I went stamping with the Stampscapes group.
The stamps I used are Crackerbox Palace stamps and also Stampscapes rubber stamps.
The ghost and Vamp are paper shaped.

Stampscapes mouse pad

Last weekend I was able to go to Chicago and stamp with some stampers and Kevin from Stampscapes. The weekend went to fast but I did get a couple of things done, and this is one of them. I will post the other projects I got done in that short time.
Here are a couple of other photos of the weekend.
Other than 'the master', Kevin we had the help of Ken which was a BIG help.
Here, Ken is helping Kay.
Stay tune for more projects and pictures.
Here is the web site for Stampscapes:

Necklace from Currie

Isn't this a nice necklace that Currie made? She used the frames from Memory Makers.
She added colores with the beads that attach the piece to the chain.
Don't worry if it does turn around when you are wearing it, she has a pretty butterfly on the other side.

Ever Need a Hand

The background paper has been put through the Cuttlebug with one of the Fades from Tim Holtz folders. I sanded the embossed area.  I stamped the hand on the card and then cut out an opening by the wrist to curl the paper back.  I then stamped the hand on a light tan card stock,(so I didn't have to color to much) and cut it out.  When I cut it out, I left some extra card stock at the end of his wrist to lay under the card.
The square behind the saying and the inverted frame are Spellbinders.  All of the stamps are Crackerbox Palace rubber stamps.

Best of the West

John and I just love this card.
Currie cut out the matting for the image with Cricut.  All of the stamps are from Crackerbox Palace and colored with Copic.  If you look close, the horse is like the kid's 'giddy up' wood horse.  This is just a great card for any guy(s) in your life, I think they would laugh.
This is the inside of the card.

Thank You with Quilling

This card is stamped with Crackerbox Palace stamp.  The background matting is from Spellbinder die cuts.  I got in the Cuttlebug Quilling flowers for the store and did not think I would open any for myself. I always liked looking at quilling but it was to flat for me to want to do it.   For a while I have been wanting to get more dimension in the flowers I make.  I kept walking by those quilling flowers by Cuttlebug and finally broke down and opened one.  As you can see, I ended up opening all 3.  I cut the card stock and cut the single strip, 2 flowers and leaves all at the same time.  The flower by the saying is just half a strip to make the flower smaller.  By doing this card and one other, I have about a dozen ideas on what to do with these, can't wait to try them!

Anniversary Monkey

Currie used Basic Gray paper and Copic markers and the embellishments are brads.
This is for the couple that has a sense of humor.  Acutally John found this saying and wanted to make it into a stamp.
If you would want to use the Happy Anniversary stamp for your spouse, you can just cut off the bottom part of the saying, we left enough room.
