A Wreath for All Seasons - Wonderous Wreath Stamp set

A fun card for my 10-4-$10 class at Hobby Lobby this week. 
These framelits are so easy to use, I had to make an early card with them.
Just die cuts and embossing.  I used the Ribbon punch to edge
the center panel of the card.  A few Rhinestones colored with a Sharpie
and the card is done!

Wonderous Wreath - 2014 Holiday Catalog

A great photopolymer set!
It is so easy to do the 2 step stampng with this set!
When I saw this in the catalog, I knew had to make an Autumn wreath.
So I created this card for another Demonstrator card swap.
I did a Rock n Roll type technique for the wreath.  I inked the wreath in Crushed Curry,
then added Cajun Craze around the edge with a dauber and ink.
I love the little wood accents.  I love the leaf shapes.
Autumn Wooden Elements #135846  $4.95

Ornamental Pine - 2014 Holiday Catalog

Hi all!
Long time no post.  So sorry.  I was on an antibiotic for a SECOND Deer Tick bite.  grrr!
The meds kicked my butt.  Better that, than Lyme Disease though.  bleh
So I have been trying to catch up with all that got behind, plus do what was
in that day's schedule, and get my energy level back up where it belongs. 
So I participated in a few Demonstrator card swaps and want to share those cards with you.
Here is my card for Ornamental Pine.  Love this set.
This could be a birthday card or just about any occasion,
all you'd need to do is switch the greeting.
So off to another marathon day, no I am not racing.  Just trying to catch up.
For all my local followers!

Stampin' Addicts Fall Blog Hop

Another great blog hop by Stampin' Addicts members! We are each featuring a different Fall product from the Holiday Catalog. I think this is the best catalog
we have offered yet!  You are at stop #1.  There are 12 blogs in the blog hop.
If you are traveling forward in the blog hop you just came from Mary's Blog,
Scrap and Stamp With Mary.  She showcased the My Digital Studio Download
Halloween Bites MDS Template beautifully. 
For my projects I am using the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Card Collection
and Accessory Packs.  You're not a scapbooker? 
Well, check out what else you can create with these kits!
My first project is a Pocket Tag card.
I used the envelope punch board to create a quick and easy pocket.
It, and my die cut leaves, are embossed with different embossing folders.
The Project Life cards make quick work of creating tags for any project.
For the smaller tag I cut one card down and attached 2 sections together
to use the words from the top of the card, with the banner on the bottom
of the card.  My "twine" pieces are long strands pulled off a 3 foot section
 of the Burlap ribbon.
Add a small banner with a name to the leaves and you have something beautiful
to place at each family members spot for your Thanksgiving dinner.
A small candy treat would even fit inside!
My next project is a Treat Slider card. While these have been around for a while,
they are the perfect project to use the cards from this kit with.
I used the Sweet Treat Embellishment Cups to hold my candy treat.
Using the envelope Punch board I created my pocket. 
Yes, for this one I will have instructions!
I attached a Halloween card from the pack to the front of the pocket, then added
the Sweet Treat Cup.  Another card is the pull up tag to reveal the opening
for the candy in the back.  The little tag and colored dot in the top left corner 
are from the sticker sheet in the Accessory Kit.
Here is my scrapbook page.  It took me 20 minutes to put together!
It took me longer to find photos.  These kits are so easy to use!
The divided pages make creating your layout a snap.
I used sequins, round and star shaped, plus several stickers and a striped button from the accessory pack.  The little card that looks like notepaper will be where I write my "story" about the photos.  My son hates for me to put that online. 
Last a card!
The Accessory kit includes 3 acetate sheets 3" x 4" with greetings on them.
After trimming one 4" x 6" card down to fit the front of a card base,
I layered the Halloween greeting over black cardstock. 
I added some of the stickers in the kit and popped it onto the front of the card.
Easy, peasy fun kits!
Don't forget to check back Monday for the how tos on the different projects.
Next on the blog hop is Carmen's blog, Stampin' Addiction.
She will be showing you spooky projects made with the Frightful Wreath kit.

Thanks for hopping by!
