I Love this months paper pumpkin!  Here is an alternate card I made using the negative space from the arrows.

Simply Stars

I have NO idea why, but I am not good at making projects with stars!  It might be the sharp edges, or the symmetrical image or the fact that I always think they should be red white or blue.  Does anyone else have the same problem or is it only me?
  I got the Simply Stars stamp set at a regional event I attended and my stamp set has just been collecting dust.  So I challenged myself to make a card with it.  I was pleasantly surprised with the results, so I guess the stamp set is a keeper. :)
 For this card I used Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizazz, and So Saffron.  I still love the Crisp Cantaloupe color and I love it even more with Calypso Coral.  What is your favorite In- Color this year?

Spooky Banner

I absolutely LOVE Halloween, I love it so much that I start decorating in September and keep the decorations up till the middle of November.  So when I saw the spooky banner in the catalog and at convention, I knew I had to make one for my home.   

 This banner is pretty easy to make, the banner pieces come cut and with the jumbo eyelets so we just get to decorate them. 
For my banner, I didn't want precise lines so I chose to spray the stencils with the stampin spritzers instead of using the sponge daubers.
Here are some close ups of the banners.  If you would like to make a banner of your own, send me a message.  I am having a class later this month!

More Six Sided Sampler

 When I was designing my swaps for convention I also created this card... that is why so many elements are the same :)  I have seen this layout of hexagons on pinterest a lot and wanted to make my own.  I like the mix of small and big hexagons but wasn't so sure that I liked the background embossed... which is why I chose the other card instead.  I love those simply pressed clay flowers though.  On this card I attached the gray flower with dimensionals! 
 To get the small Costal Cabana hexagon, I stamped the image from the Six Sided Sampler stamp set in Costal Cabana ink on Costal Cabana cardstock and then ran it through the big shot with the hexagon embossing folder.  I then used my paper snips to cut out the hexagon.  Another great way to  make different sizes of hexagons is to print them out using My Digital Studio.
