So, last month we did some really beautiful cards and projects for Mojo Monday. This month we are moving into the holiday season starting with one of my favorites, HALLOWEEN. So, I did some fun projects; Friendly Frankie is made with punches and the Top Note die, and how cute is he? The tube of candy is using an old time favorite stamp set, Batty for You, and the new 1 x 8 cellophane bags in the mini holiday catalog. Both are fun projects to give to your co-workers, children’s classmates or other friends.
On to the cards, here in the greater Sacramento area the circus comes to town in September. So, I was inspired to use the Big Top Birthday DSP paper and the Bear stamp from the Tagtastic Hostess stamp set. If you look back to last month I used this same stamp set with the Doily stamp. It really is a great stamp set and if you host a workshop you too could get this set.
There are subtle differences in the cards shown below because I could not decide between a swirls embossing or polka dot background; or between using red or blue (Tempting Turquoise) ribbons. Which one do you like better?
Last, but I don’t think least, is a simple card, using the Season of Friendship stamp set and the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch. I think this card is good for ending the summer and starting the fall season.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again for next month’s projects……..
