Here is the card that I created as my swaps for my monthly stamp group.  I had a customer request to hold a workshop in October and she wanted all Halloween themed projects.  I ordered this paper and this stamp set for that.  I couldn't wait to play with it.  I love the clear mount stamps.  They make 2 step stamping/layer stamping so much easier. 

I first stamped the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, and Lucky Limeade.  I then used a Versamark pad and black embossing powder for the faces.  I think the embossing buddy is one of the best inventions for paper crafting!!!  My pumpkins were practically flawless in regards to the heat embossing.  If you don't have one, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing one.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  Thanks for looking!!

Aviary Birthday

Yes, I'm still here and creating......I know it's been like forever since I've posted.  Life has gotten really busy and before I knew it weeks went by without me posting anything.  Anyway..............

Here is a the make-and-take that we created at a workshop I held last month.  It was the first time that I got to use my big shot at a workshop!  One woman said "I don't want to use it. I'm afraid that I'll break it!"  I assured her that she couldn't break it when using it properly.  I personally really think it's a wonderful tool and every paper crafter should own one!!!

Thanks for stopping by and come back next week for a pumpkin card.  If you have any questions, please let me know!!
