All similar in style but a bit different....I even texturized the envelopes.....

Page 4. This is such a cool idea because after it is used as a card it can go into a 12x 12 album! What a great gift this would be, don't ya think?

Here, we used the owl punch again...the ghost is made my cutting of his little feet.....the bat by adding the wings from the bat punch. Also, the pumpkin is 3 oval punches put together and the stem is from the 2 step bird punch. Once again the Square Lattice texture plate was used for the background.
We used the Bells & Boughs set from the Holiday Mini for this card. The Square Lattice texture plate for the backgrounds. Simple and cute!
This adorable harvest card was made with the Harvest Home stamp set. It was simply stamped in black ink and colored with markers. Lorraine also gave us a chalk board tag from the Definately Decorative Catalog to use....I will post a pic once I find a container to put mine on.....these are great and you will love them!

Oh my! So, it's been awhile since my last post. I have been busy since we started school the day after Labor Day and haven't slowed down yet! I have been able to squeeze a few fun things in too. Tonight me and some friends made some stamped Christmas Tags and bags. Didn't they turn out great? I just love it! I cased an idea from the Stampin'Up Demonstrator's Showcase...Thanks to Kay Kalthoff. The bag is a clear envelope with a top note die as the flap. There is a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card inside and it as well as the top note and butterfly are textured with the snowflake texture plate in the new Holiday Mini Catalog.
This set is a bit more rustic looking. I used the Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Very Vanilla papers. Oh! and I used the shimmer paint all over everything. Have you seen this stuff? You mix a little bit in a small spritzer bottle with some rubbing alcohol and spray on your paper. It adds a really nice shimmer to anything. The Tags Til Christmas set is also available in the Holiday Mini Catalog for a limited time. There is a matching punch to almost every tag so you don't have to cut them all out by hand! What a fun project. I can 't wait to make more and experiment with some other colors.
Here's one last close-up of the tags inside. These don't have the cording so they weren't finished but you get the idea. Aren't they cute? I hope to sell a bunch of these at the Bella Vista Craft Fair on Oct. 2nd.
