 Don't you love the new Core'dinations Card Stock?  I'm having a lot of fun trying all the different embossing folders with them and sanding them to create really cool textures on my cards!  And I'm really enjoying the new Perfectly Preserved stamp set.  It's so versatile and just plain cute!!

Pumpkin Tote

My friend made some cute pumpkin to toes, which inspired me to make some of my own!  I started with two Tangerine Tango scallop circles, cut out with the Big Shot die and embossed them with the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I also cut out two leaves from the Autumn Accents die and embossed them with the spiderweb embossing folder.  I added the sentiment from the Day of Gratitude stamp set and a 1/2" x 5" strip of Olive Olive for the handle.

For the box I used a 5" x 5-1/2" piece of tangerine tango and scored at 1" on each side on the 5-1/2" side and then at 2" and 3" on the 5" side.  I counted 8 scallops and then scored the scallop circle to wrap around the bottom of the tote.

One week left until Halloween!

Field Flowers Birthday Card

This is a remake of a precious card I made with some retired colors and the retired fancy fan letterpress. I love this card so much I decided to remake it with current colors and the new Fancy Fan embossing folder.  I popped up the flower on the right with some dimensionals.

Blooming with Kindness Thank You Card

It still feels like summer here in the Bay area of California, so I have some flower cards to share with you this week.  I saw this card in Stampin' Success, Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator magazine.  I just love the flower from the Blooming with Kindness stamp set.  I used the bone folder to tough up the edges and the square punch to punch the ends of the strips of paper.
