Good Morning! As promised here are the swaps from October's Stampin Club. Tis top card is MY swap card. I was inspired to do the silhouette from lbrown on SCS. This is suck a great way to make your stamp set look a whole new way! I also used the robe twine from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Oh how I love it!!!! I used silver brads and then colored them with a brown sharpie. SO EASY!!!! I love doing the sponged background!

Man oh Man I am cold! This is going to be a QUICK post my fingers are frozen stiff! The first 2 projects are from my Halloween Class a few weeks ago. I did this little treat bag that Avril found online. For the life of me I can't find the site....I also made this little center piece for each of the tables. I just filled the vase with candy corn (YUCK) and stuck some lollipops in! Chelly came over and helped me punch and stick these cute figures to dress up the pops....then she went home and made 40 more for a bday party LOL.

The card I made is a COPPY CAT card from Dannie's Design...I tweeked it a little but not too much :) I love the skull...go figure! I used my pumkin pie ink pad and rubbed it over my card stock to give it a little something...I really like how it turned out!

I was in a swap last week and I used the new Winter Post stamp set. I do not know what it was about this stamp set that drew me to it...I just really like it! I got inspiration from a wonderful stamper on SCS go check out ponygirl40! She is so talented! Check out her entire gallery while you are there!!!! I had to make 18 of these cards! My fingers were hurting after I cut out that cute little couple. I loe how she used Lovely as a Tree in the background! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that set and have not used it for a while. So here is what I did with this card:

Last weekend when Zak was here it was a YUCKY rainy day so when Zain took a nap we played in my stamp room. I was making some Frankie treat bags that I will share with you later in the week...We are making them at my Treat Class on Thursday night. I gave Zak all the stuff he would need and a picture of Frankie and he did everything himself! He did a WONDERFUL job!!! Oh can I just tell you how much I LOVE the Top Note Bigz Die that Stampin Up sells!!! I have a cuttle bug and it goes through it so easily!
Off to prepare for my treat class!

I do have a lot of things to show you all that I have been doing over the last few weeks! I made this cute little backpack that I have been seeing all over blog land! I found some great instructions from Inking Idaho and it made it a breeze to whip up. The first one took a little thinking but as you complete your first one you will be itching to make more! Zakary found this in my stamproom and now wants a lunch box to go with it LOL!!!! This is a really cute idea for a school teacher...just fill it with some candy or anything that you would like to give them! Here is what I did
Followed pattern from Inking Idaho
Paper: Black, US White, Ghostly Greetings DSP I colored every other skull red
Stamp: Just Jawing (LOVE IT)
Accessories: Star Designer brads with crystal effect and red glitter, Crystal Effect on the small black circles, Skull ribbon I found at Michaels.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Chris's sister Shana is expecting her first baby in December. She had her baby shower a few weeks ago and here is the card I made for her. As soon as I saw this Bella I knew I had to have it! The first thing I thought of when I saw it was popping out her belly with paper piecing. It looks so darn cute! Paper piecing is so easy and adds a great look to your stamped image! All you do is stamp the portion of your stamp on some DSP, cut it out, and glue in on VOILA done! I also paper pieced some of the bags and watercolored the rest of her. I had to add a little glittler to her hair cause it's oh so pretty!!! I got a little carried away when I was coloring her hair and oops wnt right into her eye....oh well we all make mistakes! So what did I use you ask?
Stamp: Bella (forgot th mae of her teddybella I think
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, US white, and Urban Garden DSP
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Pretty in Pink, and Blush Blossom
Accessories: Dew drops, stampin dimensionals, Baja Breeze ribbon, and aqua painter
I also made her a diaper cake. This was actually the first boy one I did and it was so much fun! I like to add some tags with "advice" on it....from one mom to another ;) I really love making these diaper cakes and what a great gift they make!
Today is world Card Making day so go ahead stamp yourself a card! Have fun doing it!!!!
