Stampin' Up! Twick or Tweet Ghost Card

I love the new Night and Day paper, and used it to inspire me to do this card. I love Halloween and this new stamp set is just my style, with the old time theme. I stamped the ghost image onto some of the pattern paper and then you open it up and inside is the ghosts on black card stock with Craft white ink. Use the "slit punch" on the black card stock to put the button onto and it also holds the little window down.

Silly Pictures of the Boys

The Boys found this Cow girl outfit and some wigs in the Halloween stuff. I have had that outfit for over 14 years, It was my Daughter's when she was 7 years old (2004). It was a hoot when the boys came up to my room all dressed up and showing off the a girl.. lol. I just thought that I would share my Pic's with you all!!

Pirate Time Treasure chest and Jewelry box

Treasure Chest and Jewelry Box from Priate Stamp Camp and Jewelry Party

Pirate time Kit

I had to make a Jewelry box, with it being a Jewelry party.. lol. Jordan gave me 12 of these gold Jewelry boxes for this project. I used the pirate eye patch from the Kit on the top of the box, put the flags together that are also in the Kit used the tooth picks, tied them on with the eye patch elastic and red polka dot ribbon. I gave every one a skull braclet .. I just did not have any left to put in the pic.

The Treasure Chest was easy, I just added the Cross bones and skull with white craft ink on Chocolate chip paper and glitter on a scallop. I gave every one a skull and gold coin chocolates.. yum.. for the treasure.. lol so cute!

The Girls loved all the projects

Beware Pirate Cards

Pirate Stamp Camp and Jewelry Party Cards

The Pink in this card is not showing very well in the photo, it is much brighter than it looks. I am not sure why I thought of the ribbon hanging off the card, I was just trying to make something I had not seen yet. Its a little crazy but cute. When you put the Jumbo grommet on the card, just place it where you want it pushing into the card stock, then use a hand held punch to cut the center out before you attach it to the card. Then add the Jumbo grommet and I just used double stick tape to hold all the ribbon behind the card and tied knots at the ends so they would not fray.

Gingham ribbon pink and moss (both retired 2008), 1/4 Grosgrain ribbon pink and white

I really like how this card turned out. I used Stampin Ups new glitter paint "champagne mist". I used an aqua painter and painted the edge of the card and eyelet border, it gave it a cool gold look. I also painted the white card stock before I stamped the ship and word "ARRRR". If you try to paint the gold after you stamp it, the red ink will run all over your image.

Stampin' Up! Scary Skeleton Card

This card was done for a make and take. I wanted the cape to look kind of real so I used fabric, made a tie out of black ribbon and tied it on his neck. I cut an extra head and added it on top of the first cut out to make the skeleton head pop.

Sock Monkey 12x12 Scrapbook Pages

Field day on the last day of School June 2009

I used the Arrow punch on this page to name the races. Super Cute!

The kids love the shoe toss.. I think that might be their Favorite!

My Son working hard on running the Marathon, then resting on the grass.

I found this idea on page 90 in the Idea book and Catalog. I changed it a little and added a second page. I used Creamy caramel ink with the Aida Cloth background stamp on white card stock then stamped the monkey in Chocolate chip and cut him out and layred it onto a piece of Kraft paper. I stamped the monkey onto the pattern paper and cut out his clothes. I just used my printer to print out the words for the arrow punch (printed it then punched them out) and the title below page 2, on white card stock. (I tried to get the ink color as close to Pacific point as I could)

Carved & Candlelit 6x6 Scrapbook Pages

I made these a few years ago, but I wanted to share them on my blog. Levi is only 1year 4 months old and Sabrina is 11. (now Levi is 11 and Sabrina is 20). Time sure does fly by. We had so much fun at the pumpkin Patch that year, Levi was running around with his binky and Sabrina was chasing him so I could take some cute pic's. I just love the weather in the Fall when you go to the Pumpkin patch, the cool crisp air,and the farms are so pretty with Fall colors.
Use the Alphabits set and just punch out each letter that you need to make the words on the page. Use the Masking technique on the pumpkins.

Batty for you Halloween Card

This card just came to me one day. I made it for a Halloween stamp camp I did.. I think back in 2007, everyone thought that it was a really funny card. What I did was stamp the monkey first on a black square peice of paper and then heat emboss it, then stamped and heat embossed the skull both on black, then cut out the skull and put it on the monkeys head. It makes me think of some crazy Halloween movie with skull creatures dancing around a bond fire.. lol It would also be very cute with the frankenstin head or the Pumpkin head stamp. I would also add some ribbon and a brad to this card if it was just for me.. OMG I just love Halloween!!!!
