FMS 160- With Sympathy

I don’t know about you, but I often find it difficult to make sympathy cards when I need them… so I decided to make some extras up while I was making one that I needed this week. I was trying a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I always love their clean and simple look. Here’s their blog, if you want to see their awesome samples:

 

Freshly Made Sketches

 

This week’s sketch is a very simple one, but so many possibilities:

 

FMS Final 160-001

 

Here is my interpretation of their sketch using the awesome Color Me Autumn DSP, For All Things stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, Blackberry Bliss and Sahara Sand ink pads, word window punch, modern label punch,  2 1/2″ circle punch, big shot, banner framelits, perfect polka dots TIEF, and Fancy Fan TIEF.

Do you have a favorite sketch you like to use? How about when you are making sympathy cards, any design you like to repeat? I would love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Have a great day!

Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Tonight!

Spoiler alert- here are the two cards we will be making tonight at my third in the series “Last Monday”… this is a Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack which I started in August. Every month we make 10 cards, five each of two designs. I try to balance the difficulty level with the number of people here, making decisions about which stamps and products to use takes some juggling because I have a philosophy about not repeating cards (I try to avoid it as much as possible, unless there is a request to repeat, which does happen from time to time). Anyway, I have not used my new Wondrous Wreath stamp set for any Christmas cards yet, hard to believe I had only made one fall card with them. I found an adorable inspiration card on Pinterest by Tina R. and I modified her design a little bit to work for this class, what do you think?

And here are the supplies I used to  make this card:

 

 

The second card for tonight was also inspired by Pinterest, this one was an awesome winter night interpretation using my favorite new set “Holiday Home”, the original card design was by Dolly W.  What do you think of this card?

IMG_1883

 

This was a cinch to make with our  new blendabilities. I love the warm glow of light pouring through the windows, don’t you?

 

Here are the supplies I used for this card (plus the big shot and magnetic platform again):

 

Well, I hope my stamping friends are ready for some sponging, cutting and night of fun paper crafting! I picked up some cookies and will be looking forward to some more Christmas creativity!

Maybe you’d like to make these cards? I’d be happy to plan a gathering with you and your friends, maybe a Stamp and Sip or Girls Night Out? Let me know, I have a few dates available within the next month and would be happy to help you earn free Stampin’ Up! products.
Hope you all have a very Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today. Would love to hear from YOU- which card do you like better today?? thanks!!

Mojo Monday 368 – Thank You Card

Hi Friends,

I finally had some time to work on some custom card orders. A friend is a real estate agent and she orders all her cards from me, aren’t I lucky?!!

Well I wanted this batch to be different from the last ones I made, so I went to the recent Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration.

Here is the link to the sketch:

Fall Fest was a Blast!

image

 

Last night I had the pleasure of helping out at Glendaal Elementary School’s Annual Fall Fest! I decided to have the kids decorate the fancy favor box die with Halloween stamps and punch art.
 

image

 

The boxes were a big hit! I had over 60 kids come make one! I could not believe how many cute costumes there were! There was a pie eating contest, crockpot cook-off, photo booth, races and games in the gym, cookie decorating, cider and donuts, and more crafts. The organizers did a great job, I was super impressed!

 

image
So thankful for these awesome helpers, they are in the Give Program at the high school and came to help out as volunteers! I could not have done this project without them! Thanks ladies!
image

 

How cute is this Trio from Frozen? I had to burst into “Let it Go”…. Got a few chuckles…
image

 

Greta was a great helper too, she made lots of boxes up to help others and she was right there to give a hand. She is one of the cadets in our girl scout troop, so proud of her!

 

 

image

 

 

How cute is this mother-daughter duo? They found a quiet corner to work together on a cute Halloween box!

 

 

image

These boys were awesome, they had great ideas and seemed to be in “awe” of the bat punch! Their boxes were unique and they even came up with a handle!

 

 

I love seeing girls and boys having fun with crafts, and boy were some of these kids creative!

Do you have a special Halloween tradition? I’m looking forward to a fun Halloween with the kids next Friday!

If you love Halloween as much as I do, you might want to check out the Clearance Rack, there are several items there for your Halloween crafts- you can stock up for next year!

Have a nice weekend, thanks for stopping by to read my blog today!
