Hello My Friends. . . Happy Saturday. We had a great day yesterday, sun was shining and it was not too too cold. The Royals had a great day, they won both games, but it was not about winning yesterday ito was about personal performance. All of our players had a good day. Lots of colllege scouts there.
Today I have a clean and simple card for you. My basic colors are Real Red, Whisper White and a touch of Olive Green. My stamp set is Button Buddies (W122735 C122737). You will not find a more versatile stamp set around. The cherries are pretty large. They were punched with a 2" punch so I used my nesties to cut and nest the other two circles. Stampin Up has the Lacy Scallop Circle Die in the new die cut called Perfect Pennants (123126). I used a couple of other cool tool, the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402), the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder (117335), Square Lattice Embossing Folder (119976) and the Three Flower Punch (ret). In its place you can now use the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (#118309). Add a little bling and viola' you have a very nice birthday card. Oh, my sentimemt comes from the A Word For You Stamp Set (W117032 C120528).

Hello Everyone. . . Happy Thursday. Today I have a birthday card to share with you using one of the Hostess Sets from the catty this year. It's called Happiest Birthday Wishes (W122615 C122617). Have a workshop of $150 or more and this set can be used for only $15 in Hostess Cash.
My color combo is one that I haven't used in a while, River Rock and Very Vanilla. River Rock is one of those colors that you can use as a neutral and it works very well here. My other color is Early Expresso. I've used a piece of designer paper from one of my favorite designer paper packs – Spice Cake #124003. My cool tools for this project are the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch #119275, the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, the 2" Circle Punch (non SU) and the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. For that little extra spark I also used some 3/8" Early Expresso Taffeta Ribbon.
Just as a heads up, I will not be posting on Friday. Korts has a three day softball tournament this weekend and I am the chauffeur on Friday. Yes, its kind of late in the season. This just happens to be a college scouting tournament for those who will be seeking scholorships.
We are in the final days of Stampin Ups FREE BIG SHOT promotion. Now is the time to take advantage of all of Stampin Up benefits plus get a Free Big Shot or $100 in free products. If you are considering becoming an SU demonstrator I would love to talk with you about it. I'm just and email away. Offer ends on Oct. 31st.

Good Morning Stampers. It's a little dreary here this morning, I think some rain might be in the forecast for us today.
Today i have a cute little Christmas Card to share with you. My stamp set is Polar Party (W122675 C122677). If you remember some time back I made a card using the Polar Bear but I was intriged by the cute little penguins. My mojo was just not working for these little dudes until last week when the Monday MOJO Sketch presented itself. So I put some colors together and came up with this cutsy Christmas Card. My colors are Whisper White, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and some deisgner papers. The polka dots are from the designer paper pack of Frightful Sight (#122351). A halloween paper. Go figure. As I mentioned the other day, inspiration can come from anywhere. LOL I used SU markers to color in my images and my sentiment is from the set Petite Pairs (W122495 C122497). This is a great set to have in your arsenol because it has matching versuses, one for the outside and one for the inside. I know some of you like to have a verse for the inside of your card instead of just leaving it blank. Well, here you go Now we have the best of both worlds one for inside and one for outside. For a little extra pizzazz I used some 5/8" Satin Whisper White Ribbon #114616 and some red brads from the Regals Collection #119744. Oh, if you haven't tried the new glitter glue #124117 made with Dazzeling Diamonds you are missing out on some great sparkle. You can find it in the Holiday Mini on pg 41.

Hello Folks. . . How is your morning starting off. WOW we had a beautiful day here yesterday and today is supposed to be even better. We have had such a warn fall this year. Man, I'll take it.
Today I have a clean and simple card to share. My colors are from our new In Colors this year, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo. My neutal is Whisper White. I used one of our pretty border punches, the Scallop Trim Border Punch #118402 to take my card up a notch. My designer paper is from the 2011-2013 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. I'm sorry I can't give you the number for that, it was puched out when I binded my catty with a spiral spine. I hope you can find it without too much trouble. My stamp set is the cute Button Buddies W122735 C122737. Don't you just love the little vase with flowers. I'm a foral kind of girl. LOL I stamped that with Island Indigo #122937 Classic Pad. My stems are Old Olive #102277. I used some retired buttons from this years SAB ribbon and buttons collection. My H/B is from Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370. OMG what would I do without that set. I use it over and over. You can never have too many words. Once I had everything stamped I thought my focal point still looked a little bare, so I embossed it with our Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder #117335. Of course I used our Big Shot #113478 and let it do all the work. What a handy dandy tool that has turned out to be. A must have in your Cool Tools collection.
Now I would be amiss if I didn't mention that the Big Shot can be yours for FREE when you join Sandy's Stampers and the Stampin' Up Family. Purchase a Standard or Digital Demonstrator Starter kit for $175 (shipping is FREE) and the Big Shot is yours for FREE. WOW don't delay because this offer ends on Oct 31st.

Hello My Stamping Friends. I was driving thru my neighborhood the other day and in my neighbors front yard there stood the cutest yard ornament. It is three pumpkins stacked on top of each other with the cutest faces and on top was a black witches hat. My card today was inspired by this Halloween yard ornament. It's amazing where you can get inspiration.
My card today is a happy one. My card base is Very Vanilla, topped with some Early Expresso and topped again with a piece of Spice Cake Designer Paper #124003. I know I have said it before but I will say it again, these colors are just superb. Love at first sight.
My stamp set is the retired Autumn Harvest. My faces are also retired (Fun Faces) and the witches hat comes from Wicked Cool W118738 C120600. My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370 punched with the Word Window Punch #119857 and the Modern Label Punch #119849.
My coloring technique is with Color Pencils and Gamosol. I stamped the pumpkins with Pumpkin Pie and used PC1034, PC921 (Goldenrod and Pale Vermillion), PC943, PC947 (Burnt Ochre, Burnt Umber), and PC913 (Spring Green).

Hello My Friends. . . I just want to say thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers. The hugs were nice too. All I can say is it is pretty quiet around here. I have been crafting some and I must say it is a great way to take your mind off other things.
OMG !!!! I made these little Halloween Treats and I thought I had better post them soon. Halloween is just around the corner. Don't panic you still have time to make some cute little treats for your family and friends.
I combined a couple of ideas. While surfing my favorite blogs I came across this cute little tag made with a scallop circle. I made mine with nesties but Stampin' Up has a new die cut with a cute lacey scallop called the Perfect Pennant Die #123126. Our Scallop Circle punches will work just as well too. I'm thinking the 2 3/8 Scallop Punch #118874. Next up is called an Accordian Flower or a Lolly. To make this cute flower you will need a scoring tool and Stampin' Up has introduced Simple Scored #122334 in our Holiday Mini. Check out all the deets on pg 7. This is a handy dandy tool and a must have. You can make them any size ranging from 1 3/4" to 1". TIP: Be sure and measure your scallop circle so your lolly will fit the first time. Been there done that. LOL Select a piece of DP (I used Frightful Sight #122351) and cut two (2) 12" inch strips. Click here for a video on how to make your Lolly flower. My stamp sets are Batty For You #116576 and Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370. Punches are 1 3/8" circle punch #119860 and Modern Label Punch #119849. Just for fun I added some googley eyes. Oh, I almost forgot about the treat box. Here I used our versatile Top Note Die Cut #113463. I lined my ruler up with the point lengthwise and scored 1/4" on both sides. Next I used an embossing folder to "take it up a notch" as Emeril would say. Folded on my score lines and viola' you have a cute treat holder. I used Hershey's nuggets for my candy treat.
If you have any questions I'm just an email away or if you need any supplies please shop at my online store. It's open 24/7 and just waiting to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this little Halloween Treat. It's guaranteed to put a smile on someone's face. Until next time. Happy Stamping!!!!!!! Toodles
