How is it November 1st?

**Affiliate links used when possible at no charge to you!**

 Well, yikes! It's November 1st already. No, I am just not ready. But since it is November 1st, we have a new Fan Club Christmas Challenge.  

Last year, my daughter's future mother-in-law gave me lovely presents wrapped in this gorgeous paper. Being the saver I am, I couldn't part with it and tucked it away.  

I also used the Small Layered Bow and the Merry Christmas Die from IO. I LOVE die-cut paper bows. I am all thumbs regarding real ribbons, but paper bows do what it's told!  :)  


Have you started making your Christmas cards?

Boo! A Treat for You at IO!

 Happy Halloween!

We had a monster of a Halloween release a few months ago; here are a few I didn't get to share earlier!  

Also, IO is having a frightfully fabulous sale until midnight EST.  31% off ALL regularly priced items!  Today is the day to treat yourself. Click HERE.


A simple yet effective technique. Simply stencil black ink on colored cardstock. Here is what I used:



Two colors, fancy patterned paper, and a cute girl!



This is one of my faves, and it was SO simple.  I love a simple design.  



And last but certainly NOT least, because you know my affection for cats!  These cute spooky cats are up to no good!  




I hope you have a safe and wonderful Halloween!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thankful - IO Theme Day - Give Thanks

Hi!
This week at IO, we are Giving Thanks. I am grateful for warm beverages and sweet conversations with friends and family.  

I had a wonderful time creating this card. I die-cut the Big Mug and then stamped the big flower from the Fall Gratitude set onto the mug. The sentiment is also from the Fall Gratitude set. I love making things with the color yellow right now.  The Crazy Stitched set is my go-to layering die.  I love the finished look with the stitching; the size is just right to show off some color behind it!  



The Fall Gratitude set is new this month.  To check out all the new, click HERE.

Life is Lovely - IO Oct Release & Hop Day 2

Hello! Welcome to day 2 of the October Release & Hop.  

I am still playing with Brushos. I love the intense color I achieved using the Maple Stencil. I placed the stencil over the cardstock, ink blended with Distress ink, then sprinkled Brushos and spritzed it with water. Presto, Fall leaf
 magic. The sentiment is from Wonderful Life.  




This next card features the new Turkey! He is such a cutie and very easy to put together. I used a patterned paper from the Watercolor Pumpkins Paper pack for his feathers and the background. The sentiment is from Turkey Sayings. I love the size of the Bread Tag to use as layers.

You are a Work of Art - IO Oct Release & Hop

Hello, and a warm welcome to Day 1 of the IO October Release!

Do you pick up an art medium you haven't worked with in a while and feel like you have rediscovered it? Recently, I  pulled out my Brushos Watercolor Powders and have had a blast seeing where they take me. I love the brilliance and explosion of color I have rediscovered with Brushos.  :)  I used this color background with the new Work of Art stamp set. I love "art" stamps, so this set will be one of my favorites. I stamped the cute girl on a Suit Tag die; the size was perfect.  


I once again created a Brushos background. The red took over more than I planned, but they are still beautiful. I die-cut the Simple Leaves from the background and placed them on twine. The sentiment is from Leaf Sayings.  




October 15th & 16th The Impression Obsession Team will share new projects with the NEW clear stamps, dies, stencils and paper packs! You can find a list of participants on the Impression Obsession Blog each day through the event.

Go to the Corner

 Hello!
We are headed to the corner for this week's F4All Challenge at SCS!  We are working in the corners of our projects this week.  :)  The challenges at SCS are free! If you haven't stopped by SCS, you are missing out.  There are daily challenges, tutorials, and your very own art gallery to fill with your paper projects.  We would love to see you there!  

I used the Edges 2 die to decorate my corners.  The lower corner has two pockets for the fun tags to snuggle into.  This kind of pocket card is crazy easy to make!
Here is a list of all items used to make this card.

Scenic Paper & Word Dies for IO Product Focus - Dies

Hello!  
This month's IO Product Focus is Dies! My cards today feature new word dies.  I love how they take a project up a notch and add that polished look.  The word dies I am featuring today includes the bubble shadow background for extra versatility!

 I used the Winter Scenes Paper Pack on both cards.  The scenery is simply stunning. I am featuring the Peace Love & Joy die set and Edges 2 for the border for this card.

The second card features the O Holy Night word die.

Most Wonderful Time

Hello!  
We are having so much fun at the SCS Fan Club Christmas Challenge.  We have been creating all year long and are ready with our holiday cards when December comes!  

I chose to feature this adorable Reindeer Mug!  I would love coffee, tea, or cocoa from a cute mug like this!  Here is what I used to create this fun card:



I added just a little something on the inside using the second sentiment in the In & Out 12 set.  


I would love to know if you have your stash of Christmas cards made yet!

Time to Sit and Watch the Leaves - IO October Limited Edition Set Hop

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the October Limited Edition Set Hop!  

There is nothing like sitting and watching colorful leaves float to the ground!  Here in the south, it's like a colorful snowfall! I love the Fall season as it means the super hot days have come to a close.  Since we don't get very cold temps, it's a delight to experience the cooler days of Fall.
