Season of Sweets - Moving Forward Style

This is one of the projects from my Moving Forward  Stamp Set class.  We used the cookie pouches from the Season of Sweets Designer Kit. (p. 15 of the Holiday Mini)  We used the blimp image on these pouches--and as you can see, I am no baker, so we used the little plastic bags that came with the kit for our Fall M & M's!  We also used the Window Frames Framelet Dies and the designer paper is from the Orchard Harvest DSP pack.  Both of these are available in the holiday mini also!  The little stamp on the left side of the window frame is the little bird from Moving Forward, the only image we hadn't yet used from the stamp set.  I love the M & Ms idea, because  you could make up some of these ahead of time, and not have to worry about the "cookie" getting stale.  I thought that these would make nice thank yous for waitresses, bank tellers, etc.  (Would put Thank you instead of Happy Birthday on them, obviously.  lol.  Thanks for stopping by!  Brenda

Ghoulish Googlies Desginer Kit

Today's sample is made with he Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit, which I dearly love!  This will be one of our projects in the Halloween 3-D class on Saturday, September 9th.  The little tag came with the kit, and I just stamped the mummy on it, the rest was already there.  Love the little googlie eye, which is also part of the kit.  There are 20 tags in the kit - 10 like the one above, and 10 that are round.  So even after you make the little treat bags, you still have 10 tags left over for another project!  Woo Hoo!  I went in search of Corn Candy to put in the little treat bag, but there was none to be had yet.  They had lots of trick or treat candy out, but no corn candy!  So I was forced to buy the Fall M & M's.  What a shame, huh?  lol  Have a blessed stamping day!  Brenda

Fall Card Class Sample

I am so excited!  I have had such fun the last 2 days working on Class samples!  I love, love, love the new Holiday mini catalog--and now my supplies are arriving!  It has been like Christmas here!  Fortunately the garden has cooperated and I don't have to can tomatoes until tomorrow.
On this card I used the new Woodgrain embossing folder on our new Core'dinations Card Stock!  I just love how the center of the cardstock shows through when you sand it with our Stampin Sanding System.  I used one of the Natural Designer Buttons as an accent piece.
This is one of the cards we will be making in my Fall Cards Class on Wednesday, August 22nd.  Email me for details and to sign up.   Thanks for stopping by.  Happy stamping.  Brenda

Nancy Drew Game

I took a few days this week to go to my daughter, and downline;s house with my grandddaughters.  Mary Ann had prepared a real life Nancy Drew game for the girls.  In this one they solved a mystery that took place at the Nationals (her version of the Olympics)  She fingerprinted all of us and then they dusted for fingerprints to see who dun it!  Turns out that since I have had this skin problem, where all my skin has peeled, I almost had no fingerprints to print!

I took a whole box of new Stampin Up goodies to work on, but instead I mostly just relaxed and enjoyed my daugther and granddaughters.  I did work on a 3-D sample that will be one of the items in my Christmas 3-D class this year!  I will save it to share with you later, as we get closer to Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!  Brenda

For the Birds - Ice Skating Bird

This card was also one that I used in my For the Birds class on Saturday.  I mostly cased this one, with a few tweaks, from teammate, Carolyn Serviss!  I sprayed the whole card with Glimmer mist, which is made by adding Champaigne Mist Shimmer Paint to alcohol and spraying the card.  I also used the Rhinestones on this card.  The bottom 2 layers are Brushed Silver and Bashful Blue.
Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping, Brenda

Thanks for your Support

 This card was another one that we made in my For the Birds Stamp Class on Saturday.  I cased this card from Kim Knoph.  It was another card that I received as a trade at Convention!  This one showcases our new Chevron Embossing folder.  I am not a big Old Olive fan, but it sets off the pinks in this card very nicely!  It was also an opportunity to use the new striped ribbon (Cherry Cobbler)
Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping, Brenda
