Full of Thanks Cards

 The 1st Friday in August the local Irrigation Association installed a Sprinkler System for the Therapeutic Riding Center here in town. I am the Secratary for the local association and I wanted to send out some Thank yous to the parts manufactures that donated all the supplies for the system.
I copied this card right from the Pathfinding Kit from CTMH. I really love that stamp in the kit and those sweet little feathers!

The Deer Horns

So I have been pretty infatuated lately with deer horns. I think I spent a whole hour on Pinterest last week looking all kinds of stuff. Pillows, tags, 3d cardboard things. So when I spotted this stamp from CTMH
  I added it to my order. I decided to make it a Halloween card. I stamped on a piece of vintage book paper and then hand drew a spider. Pretty scary, huh?

Halloween Treat Toppers

 One of my favorite things about Halloween is the treat giving. As papercrafters it gives us endless opportunities to make little treat gifts. These 2 pleated toppers are super fun and are great with these fun chocolates for Halloween I found at World Market.

Sweet Treats Halloween Card

Being a CTMH consultant comes with lots of perks! For starters I make a money selling what I love most, scrapbook supplies. Another perk is that I can buy one or all of the Hostess sets that would normally only be availiable when you held a home gathering. When I saw this apothecary jars stamp set I knew I would be making lots of cards using it. This Halloween card is the 1st of many.
Have you ever thought about making a money doing something you love. I would LOVE to have you on my team! You can read all about it here.

In case you were wondering this is what comes in the Cardmakers Starter Kit.

Pin Inspired Halloween Card

It's been awhile since I have posted a pin-inspired card. Here is my inspiration card. I really like the stickers that go with the Scaredy Cat line from CTMH, especially this little owl.
 I really love the kraft color added to the orange, purple and black. Look for some more projects using this combo soon.
Have a wonderful weekend and come back next week!

Halloween Heads Card

I was inspired by one of my own cards for this project. Take a look at this card.  I really liked the lined up pumpkins so when I saw this stamp-
Tick or Treat Sweets- in the catalog I thought it would be fun to recreate the card. All it really takes is masking.
Stamp your image on scrap paper or the Post-It. Cut out the image.
Stamp the image again onto your regular paper. Place the paper mask on top, covering the image completely to protect it as you stamp the second time.
Stamp again, positioning the image partially onto the mask. This second image will appear to be behind the first. Repeat, if you want additional images.

Do you see those tiny staples on the sides of the cards? Yep my new favorite tool from CTMH is the Mini Stapler!

If the broom fits card

So I have been having fun this month creating all these Halloween projects! Now I bet you are wondering about how I got a two colored image for that sweet little witch? It's really very easy.
1. Stamp your image in Black Ink and cut it out.
2. Stamp your image in Purple Ink and cut out the dress only.
3. Glue the dress over the top of the black dress. *note use strong adhesive like liquid glass* sometimes using dry adhesive over the top of a stamp image wont hold very well.
You wouldn't want her dress to fall off!!!
