October club sneak peak

Here is a sneak peak of what we are going to be doing for our club this month.  Aren't these just the cutes or halloween treat bags!  The technique is very easy!

Weekend Sketch Challenge #60

Here is my take on Beate's sketch for this month.  My card was very simple, but I'm happy with the results.  I used Close to Cocoa and Baja Breeze ink with a blender pen to color the image of my cupcake platter from Crazy for Cupcakes (which is on special this month from Stampin Up!).  I used Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White card stock.  And the red is from the hostess prints pack.  I got out my new Sizzix Big shot, and our new Top Note Die (exclusive from Stampin Up!) and cut the top note in half.  Then I just popped out three 1/4 circles using the punch and tied white taffeta ribbon around my Baja Breeze cs.  LIke I said, very simple, but very cute IMO. 

P.s. I also used that cute little birthday sayings set.  At the moment I can't remember it's official name! 

Be Inspired #25

I am trying to stay motivated in making stuff, so I pay close attention to Beate's challenges. This one I used Stampin Up's Eastern Blooms with Tangerine Tango ink, Close to Cocoa, and Versamark.  I used Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, and Kiwi Kiss card stock, and the Hawaiian Papaya designer series paper.  I also used a tiny bit of Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon in there too.

 I am really happy with my results. though my intention was to copy the layout of the inspiration, but I did it from memory, so it wasn't perfect.  If I wanted it to be perfect I guess I should have looked at the inspiration peice closer :)
