I would LOVE to do my front entry way this way!

How cute is he?!?!

I just love how this card turned out!!!  My club members LOVE IT!! 
 I even received a few orders for this card!  

In the picture about the card is closed with the NEW Twisted - Thicker Baker's Twine!  This new twine comes in 2 different colors at this time.  The Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.  LOVE IT!! You can find it in the Holiday Catalog.

In this picture, these are the front and the 2nd panel to the screen.  I just love that little punch art Bat.  And how about the NEW  Fall Bundle that came out in the Holiday Catalog!!  It is called "Fall Fest", it is a Photopolymer set.  But what is really great you can get it as a bundle and get the framelits to cut out all the images in the stamp set.  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for us!

Here are the 3rd and 4th Panels.  Wondering what stamp set the little moon and bats came from?  This is another NEW set that came out in the Holiday Catalog as well.  This one is called "Holiday Invitation", this is also a photopolymer set.  If you haven't checked out this catalog you really have too!!

I almost forgot to tell you about the NEW punch, Confetti Stars.  This punch also came out in the Holiday Catalog.  I love how Stampin' Up! has come out with more boarder punches.  And with punch you get all those little stars after you punch.  I see another project coming!!!

I hope you will join the DOstamper Stars with the next challenge Thursday!  Here are few links to the other stars that have participated in this weeks challenge.

Check out future challenges here:

This week it is the DOstamper Stars 100th challenge!
So the Stars decided that we would do a
Winner will be drawn randomly by my other half.

How cute is he!!!

This time of year is one of my favorite holidays to decorate and create for.  Next to Christmas.  So of course I had to do a Halloween Card for our challenge this week.

Did you happen to notice the Designer Series paper in the background???  Yes, it is NEW and it is a Christmas paper!  But I seen the design and just knew I had to use it as a Halloween card.  Stars - Bat...of course!!!  Stampin' Up! has made it so easy and versatile for us to use the DSPcardstock for more then just the occasion it came out for.  You can find this in the Holiday Catalog that just came out.

The bat is made out of the Build a Owl Punch.  How great and easy!!  For the wings of the bat I used the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Heart punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  The heart punch was used for making the scallops on the end of the wings.  

The of course you have to finish off the card with some Chevron Ribbon and Candy Dots!!!

Missing In Action!


WOW!!!  I have had a very busy couple of months...  My daughter came home for a visit in June.  She has 3 of my grandchildren!  I was so excited to see them all.  As you can tell in the above picture there is 2 of them.  Briana the oldest and Teagan which is 4 yrs old.  I will get a picture of Carson up as well.  It was a great time!!  Allot of selfie's as you can tell.  LOL

Here I am with the 3 of them

They stayed with me for almost the whole month of June.  LOVED IT!!!  After they took off for Texas I started looking at all the pictures on my phone and you should see all the photo bombs and selfies that the 3 of them left me.  LOL

After they left it was time to get ready for a nice long weekend up north for the 4th of July.  Well...that didn't happen either for me.  My mom ended up in surgery for a hip replacement.  So I thought I better stay home and make sure everything was OK with her.  Went and visited with her on Sat. and did some running around to get her somethings she needed.  She is recovering very well!

After that came STAMPIN' UP! CONVENTION!!!!  More to come....

Thank you for stopping by and stop by for Convention memories.

Color Six Sided Sampler Challenge

Here we are again with challenge Thursday.  This week is flying by!!  It helps that it is only a 4 day work week!

I just love these colors together!  They are soft, but yet, they have such a pop to them.  It is even better when you use Smokey Slate.  LOL  I don't know what I was looking at last night, but I used Smokey Slate instead of Basic Gray.  Oh well it still came out nice! You can judge for yourself!

I cased this card out of the Stampin' Up! catalog.  It is on page 125.  Of course I changed the colors to match the color challenge, and didn't even get that right!

I have to admit that I really never used this stamp set until last night to make this card.  I have used the words but never the six sided images.  What I really like about this set is that it has a punch to go with the six sided images to punch out.  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for us!!  What is even can still get the Bundle and SAVE 15%.  So you would get the stamp set and the punch.  But hurry you only have 2 more days.

The little button is filled with the silver that is from the Silver Bakers Twine.  I just took off the silver in the twine and threaded it through the button and tied a bow.  I believe it gave the card a little extra accent.  For the six sided hexagon that has the hole in it, I stamped the image on Whisper White cardstock and then punched out a 3/4" hole in any color cardstock and centered the punched circle in the middle of the stamped image and took the 3/4" punch and punched the hole.  The 3/4" hole I punched the 1st time was for a guide to get it centered in the middle of the stamped image.
