Eve was invited to a birthday party last weekend, for two of the girls in her class. I figured that was as good as time as any to break out the Pony Party stamp set! Pink, Purple, and Ponies — really, what could be bad? Here’s what I came up with:

Stamps: Party Pony
Ink: StazOn Black, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper
Other: Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

If that doesn’t scream 7-year-old girl, I don’t know what does.

We’re doing Halloween Buddies at school — each teacher has a secret buddy that they give treats to for a week and a half before Halloween. It is so much fun! The bummer though, is that I can’t give anything stamped, because then my buddy would know that it was me! Arggh! Talk about frustrating! I f I could though, I would definitely give her this adorable Halloween matchbox.

It was Sarah‘s fabulous idea to put the little pumpkin faces on the Hershey’s nuggets. How cute are they?

I really liked the color’s for last week’s Stampin’ Addicts Color Challenge. The colors were So Saffron, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Not Quite Navy. I wanted to make a fall card, but everything I thought of needed some shade of brown.Then I remembered that there was Old Olive in the Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper, so I decided to make a Halloween Card instead! This is what I came up with:

CIMG8511Stamps: Batty for You, All Holidays
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron, Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, 1″ Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch

The cute little Batty for You circles are actually attached to the inside of the card. I used my 1 3/8″ punch to put holes on the front so you could see them through it. Here’s what the inside looks like.

Halloween’s getting close! Are you ready?

As long as I’m starting with the Hanukkah cards, I figured that I might as well do one for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch challenge this week too. I like the big circle as the focal point.

I hadn’t done any embossing on my Hanukkah cards yet, and I love the look of silver and Night of Navy, so I grabbed those first. I thought the Bashful Blue pieces looked a little plain, so I used the single candle from Party Hearty to make a more interesting background. Here’s the finished card:

CIMG8510

Stamps: Shalom Sayings, Party Hearty
Ink: VersaMark, Bashful Blue
Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Brushed Silver, Going Grey
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, 1/4″ Night of Navy Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Elastic Cord, Scallops #2 Bigz Die, Big Shot

Thanks for looking!

I was at a Tupperware party the other night (yes, seriously, and it was so much fun!) and I was talking to one of my friends about how I had made a few Hanukkah cards, but hadn’t started putting them up on my blog yet, thinking it was still too far away. But she pointed out (Thanks Lisa!) that Hanukkah is less then 2 months away, and there was no need to wait to post them. Excellent point! So I decided to do a Hanukkah card for this week’s Saturday Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411.

This sketch lent itself very nicely to the new “Let There Be Light” single stamp found in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I love the fun whimsical look of the candles. See the Designer Series Paper on top? It didn’t start out like that. See below for more info on how I modified it.

CIMG8513

Stamps: Let There Be Light
Ink: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Crushed Curry
Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Crushed Curry Designer Patterns Series Paper, Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper (Hostess Level 1)
Other: Brayer

The top piece of Designer Series Paper is from the Patterns Pack that you can get free with as a Hostess Level 1 set. It comes with five colors included — Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, Sahara Sand, Really Rust, and Night of Navy. I used one of  the Night of Navy patterns for this card.Here’s what it looked like fresh out of the pack:

But it was too white. It took away from the stamped image. So I pulled out my handy dandy brayer nd my Bashful Blue ink pad, and I brayed ink over the piece of Designer Series Paper. Et viola! A beautiful piece of Designer Series Paper that matches my card fabulously! Amazing, huh?
