Pumpkin punch around the page

When I first saw this pumpkin punch at the store, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I like how versatile it is. I decided to make a pumpkin face shaker card to attach to the matchbox pro die that I have. You can punch it out anywhere on your paper. I used Dandelion Designs pumpkin face stamp from last year to give my pumpkin a face. The cute stamp is "pumpkin" from CC Designs.I cut the grass out with my Eclips machine using the Edges cartridge. And the embossed background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder. The pretty orange sheer ribbon is American Crafts which I bought last week from Ben Franklin Crafts.
And because I didn't want to waste the punched out pumpkin, I used it to decorate the inside of my card.
Word stamp is also Dandelion Designs. See, I stamped the face on the pumpkin.
Here is what the punch looks like and the face stamp.
Hope you're having a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!!!

Webbed Kiyomi

Happy Monday! Ok, I didn't know what to put as my title but did it catch your eye? I just spent half of my day cutting kits for this Saturday's make & take at Ben Franklin Crafts 60th anniversary party at the Paa St. store. We will be using this CD holder die that I used to make this Kiyomi project but using different dies to finish it.
While I was cutting kits, I decided to make a Halloween project using Kiyomi from Sister Stamps. Yes, I tend to do several things at the same time. And I wanted to try coloring her hair like how Jenny mentioned on her Sister Stamps site. The paper that I used to cut the CD holder is an old Making Memories paper that I have been hoarding. You can't really see it but the spider webs are made from velvet material. It's the coolest thing.
The orange piece is a Cheery Lynn Designs die called "inverted scallop circles" which I got from the store.
Well, hope this weather cools down because I still have a lot more to do before this weekend.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments!!!

For fun

As I was going through my piles of scrap mess, I found a Sizzix die buried under it all. The die is called zigzag 3-D pop-up by Karen Burniston. It is the easiest pop-up die to put together. And so for fun, I used Dandelion Designs newest cling sets called "Smile" and "Halloween".
Sorry if this picture is kind of bright but I'm still learning how to use my photo program.
I stamped 2 of the same monsters but colored them in different colors.
I love how each character in the new cling sets have that extra hand stamp so you can have them holding something.
Here's what the zigzag 3-D pop-up looks like behind the stamped image. This die is so much fun and so many ways of creating with it.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!!!

It's that time of year

Sometimes while I'm working on a project, my mind goes blank. So I tend to stray away and work on something else. These days that means playing with all the different cartridges for my Eclips machine. While making this witches hat, I decided to use the Halloween and Scaredy Cat cartridge to decorate my hat.
And because I made the witches hat in black, I wanted to make sure that you could see the black spider. So I cut the spider in black and also a taupe color and placed the taupe paper under the black spider to outline it.
That's a new Hero Arts stamp from the "Spooky Halloween" set that I stamped on the orange rectangle piece. The box that I used is an older Sizzix XL die called triangle box.
Hope you're having a fun filled holiday weekend and thanks for popping in and leaving your sweet comments!!!
