I drew my inspiration from the pumpkins and colors, and also was
inspired by Connie who made these darling treat bags for Halloween
 and Christmas, I went with a fall version.  You can find her tutorial at https://simplysimplestamping.com/holiday-treat-bags-make-in-5-quick-minutes/.
 
I used Repeat Impressions: 514-I, Prize Pumpkin, 3312-E, Maple Leaf
and 3313-E, Oak Leaf and colored them with my Copics after
cutting them out with my Scan N Cut.

Happy Birthday Guys

I needed 3 masculine cards to mail tomorrow so here are the 3
quick and simple cards I made.
 

I used Echo Park papers on all of them. Above is a Pickle ball and paddles
I found on line for my brother-in-law.
 
 
My brother is a camera buff so this paper was perfect for him, you
can't tell to well but 3 of the camera's and the sentiment are pooped
up.

 
This is for a nephew.
 
Sometimes life gets busy and it is hard to keep ahead on the birthday
cards, especially masculine as I don't tend to have those in my stash, not
my specialty.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Repeat Impressions: Designer Choice Impressions

It's is always fun to see what one of my Design Team pals picks
for the monthly DCC at The House That Stamps Built and this
 month Joy picked circles:
 
 
As soon as I saw this I thought I love circle easel cards but I
am afraid to make one, but nothing speaks circles more than
than a circle easel card to me.  So I browsed Pinterest for a
few tutorials and they are actually very easy to make!
 
Above is the design I came up with using some pretty
purple floral paper from my stash, Repeat Impressions
Someone Special and the dragonfly from Waterlilies &
Dragonflies. Die cuts by Spellbinders.
 
Below is my card closed.


 
Copics I used.

The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

 
Yes, it is everyone's favorite week at The House, Anything Goes! I need
to get going on Christmas cards as it will be here before we know it.
 
I embossed 2103-M, These three gifts with Egyptian gold embossing
powder on a white silver metallic paper, added an elegant gold
layer, a few gold stars and left it at that for the sentiment to
shine.

Wine bottle tag/bookmark

 
 

I will give you one guess as to where I am this week, you guessed it.  I
am laying on the beach, sight seeing, eating and of course enjoying wine with
dear friends since high school.  I made these wine bottle tags/bookmarks
as a little remembrance of our trip for the group.
 
I look forward to catching up with your blogs when I get back!
