myStampBOX: Happy Halloween!

Join the DT at myStampBOX today for a team post all about Halloween! You'll find layouts, cards and an altered project packed with inspiration.

This year we began a new tradition for Halloween - scary face pancakes at IHOP! The boys loved being allowed to play with their food. I used the myStampBOX Royal Flush alphabet on Canvas Corp canvas (love our product partner!!). The diamond paper is also Canvas Corp.

Of course I had to throw in a little Karen Foster Design! The collage paper and Crazy Coil Brads are KFD. I added my journaling onto a spot stamped with the Just Add Notes set from myStampBOX as well.

Happy Halloween!

myStampBOX: Hope, Support & Friendship DT Projects

Today the myStampBOX Design Team is sharing lots of projects about hope, support, and friendship. You'll see a variety of projects and themes, and there's tons of inspiration! Please click over to see them all.

For this team post I made a window card. I used a fabulous card base from product partner Canvas Corp. I punched a window into the card front and framed it out with a double-punched, scalloped square. A pink bow added a pop of color to an otherwise-plain color scheme.

With the window opening, I was able to play with what went inside. I stamped the multi-heart image from Itty Bittys, colored them pink, and added some Stickles for sparkle and shine. I also added a sentiment from Mention It. This sweet card will hopefully help someone feel better!

Karen Foster Design: Season's Greetings

It's time to start thinking about holiday cards, and today I'm sharing one that's published in the latest issue of Crafts 'n Things magazine.

Click here for all the instructions and supplies from Karen Foster Design and others. I used their fun clear stamps, Scrappers Spools, and of course one of my favorite Swirl Burst Brads. They are an absolute must-have!! I stamped Santa's beard and the fuzzy parts of his hat onto felt and even fashioned tiny wire glasses for him. This Santa is detailed! The whole thing is layered onto a card I made using (another favorite) Core'dinations cardstock. I hope you enjoy my first peek at holiday scrapping.
