CCC #011: Groups of Three !!

Hey Stampers,

So, the Card Challenge for October was posted over on Catherine and Cathy Create today !! The theme we picked for this month is a lot  of fun - GROUPS OF THREE !! So, make a card featuring anything in a group of 3; 3 buttons, 3 shapes, 3 items of any kind !! Fun and easy, right ?? I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my stash using 3 ornaments I created with the Mosaic Madness set !! Take a look at this fun and quick to make card !!

Isn't that cute !?! I love taking non-Christmas sets and using them to make great Holiday cards !! This rich color combo is Island Indigo, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler and is perfect for Christmas cards. I also used the Modern Mosaic embossing folder to mimic the shaped of the ornaments. Love how that brings it all together ! 

Well thats it for me today !! Drop over to Catherine and Cathy Create and play along with us, won't you ?? Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!

CCC #010: October Challenge "Orange & Black"

Hey Stampers,

Well ... time is STILL flying by !! its now October, can you believe it !?! And I only have 30 days left in my 20's !! Hahaha. And of course, a new month means a brand new challenge over at Catherine and Cathy Create !! I don't know about you, but when I think October, I think Hallowe'en !! Its one of my FAV days of the year (and not just because its my birthday). Our challenge this month is to create a project using the colors Orange and Black ... lets take a look at what I created !

Isn't that SO cool !?! And the coolest part is, I didn't even use a die or anything !! I trimmed a piece of the fab Witches' Brew DSP to 10" x 12" and then used my Sticky Strip to create a tube. I then folded the bottom 2" a couple times, trimmed up to my fold 4 times and folded these "tabs" over to create a bottom for my little bag !! SOOOO easy and quick too !! I tore the top edge of the bag then for a "spooky" look, and used my Paper Piercer to poke some holes for my 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon to go through. I tied a nice bow, so its easy to get at the yummy treats inside. 

The stamped images come from the Hallowe'en Bash stamp set. I heat embossed the bat image with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder onto some Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and layered it onto the fun Decorative Label stamp from the same set. Really cute when layered together, right ?? I can see me making a bunch of these fun bags this year - perfect for my co-workers !! 

Well thats it for me today !! Don't forget to drop over to Catherine and Cathy Create to check out the fun projects the rest of the Design Team came up with !! And play along with us too !! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
