Something Good to Eat

Friends were coming over to dinner and my husband decided to gift them these cute pumpkins he found at Sur La Table. They were on sale! We filled them with Hershey's Kisses and then I went into my studio to doll them up.

I used some leftover Very Vanilla Stitched Shapes and added some leftover Copper Foil pumpkins from Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits and a tiny piece of Black Mini Sequin Trim. My sentiment is from "Something Good to Eat" (September 2016 Paper Pumpkin) and is stamped in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake card stock and cut with a 1" Circle Punch. The Black Chevron Ribbon is retired, as is the Gold Cording I used to tie my tag onto the ceramic pumpkin dish.

I'm so glad you stopped by today! Please leave me a comment so I know you were here!

Heartfelt Sympathy

Sympathy cards are hard cards to make. I rarely have one handy, as I prefer to make them especially for the specific person I'm sending them to. In this case, two of my friends lost loved ones in the recent weeks, so I made two of the same beautiful card.

It's not hard to put together a lovely card when you begin with the Detailed Floral Thinlits. They MAKE this card what it is. My standby Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set completes the card. In the middle I used the Smoky Slate gingham ribbon for a beautiful bow. The Basic Pearls and Clear Faceted Gems complete the elegant look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired. Make your own cards using Stampin' Up! supplies from my Online Store.

Pumpkin Thank You

All of my October customers got this sweet little 3 x 3" thank you in the mail after their orders. I got the idea from a card that Erica Cerwin made. 

Hers was a full-sized card and had three pumpkins on the front, one stacked on top of the other. She used three colors. 

I loved how she used the pumpkin thinlit, glued it onto a solid piece of card stock the same color and then fussy cut around the pumpkin. 

The shadow created is very artistic. Texture comes from the background using Timeless Textures stamps and the Gold Metallic thread under the pumpkin. 

The sentiment is stamped using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and easily punched out with the Duet Banner Punch.

Thanks for looking today! Please use my Online Store any time.

Thanksgiving Favors

My fellow Stampin' Pretty Pal, Julie DiMatteo made some cute little candy totes and I used her pattern to make up my own for Thanksgiving time. Now, by using the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pumpkin print, I didn't have to do much to decorate the front of the little boxes. Costco has the Ferrero Rocher candies at a great price if you are making a lot of these cuties!

Don't they look delicious and beautiful? They would make great name placards at dinner as well. I hope you enjoyed looking today! Let me know if you have any questions.
