Good Monday afternoon!

I know, it's been almost a week. I do apologize - but real life has been super-busy - so I've got that, plus not feeling well on the days I'm not so busy! ANYWAY. :) Back to stamping!

Today, I'm going to show you the two cards and one 3D project we did in September at my parties. October's going to be an AWESOME time to hostess; if you're interested, PLEASE let me know! You can even have your party at my house, so you don't have to clean! LOL!

The above card is done with NATURE'S SILHOUETTES, which I purchased by accident. :D It's stamped in Basic Brown on Very Vanilla; we used the backing from the negative space left from the rubber diecutting process to mask the saying and sponge with Really Rust. We sponged the edges with the Basic Brown, and then layered onto Really Rust and Very Vanilla. Super easy!

This pillow box was made completely with the Big Shot. It is SO fun to play with - er, ummmm, WORK with. Yeah, that's it. :D

We used the pillow box die, the pumpkin die, and the leaves #2 die. Cut it all out, stamped the "Happy Thanksgiving" on the pumpkin from HOLIDAYS & WISHES, and assembled it. It's filled with candy corn! :D

Here's the third project:

Everything inked is stamped. We used a Versamark pad, and stamped the angel, the background, the saying on the front, and the saying on the inside - then used gold embossing powder on it. The angel is from the set HOLY TRIPTYCH; the background is one of the ITTY BITTY BACKGROUNDS. The sayings on the front and on the inside are from MANY MERRY MESSAGES. We colored in the angel with Stampin' Pastels, clipped the corners with my favorite, ticket corner punch, and that's it!!! :) It really was a simple card!
