Last Chances Today!

This is it! The end of September means the end of entering to win my Rubber Stamper's Halloween Pack. You can still enter today until midnight by answering the question below in a comment or by placing an order (gets you 5 entries).

Embossed Fall Color Card
Today's card idea is one of my favorite stand-by layouts.
  • The Kraft cardstock base was embossed with the Big Shot and Stampin' Up! Texturz plates, then a light sponging of Dusty Durango rubbed across the top to help the embossing stand out.

  • A piece of close to cocoa attached at the bottom creates the "text box". The sentiment is from Kind and Caring Thoughts--email me if you would like to know how to get this stamp set free.

  • For a little zip, I added some Bermuda Bay polka-dot ribbon.

  • The image is Flowers in Silhouette which is a single stamp offered by Stampin' Up! It is stamped onto a small piece of Kraft first in Dusty Durango, then again (slighty offset) in Craft White. I just love the way the colors blend together creating a third color! The image piece is layered onto Dusty Durango and all the edges are sponged with Dusty Durango ink.

Card close up of stamped imageToday is also the last chance to order the Definitely Decorative Growth Chart.

This special offer growth chart is $24.99. It goes up in a jiffy on a wall, door, or if you think you might move you can apply it to a board that can move with you!


And now for the last question...but first I want to thank everyone who has participated! It is so fun to hear about what you are doing and find out your view on things!!
Do you usually have trick-or-treaters come to your house?


Have a great day! I'll post the winner tomorrow!


  • The 12 Weeks of Christmas started today! If you're on my mailing/newsletter list you should have received a Christmas card idea this morning. The upcoming weeks will include cards, gifts, and tags/wrapping projects. Not on the list? Sign up in the upper left corner of my blog.

Love the double colored stamping technique. Will have to try it today.
Yes, I have trick or treaters come to my house. We have been in our new home for 4 years now, and the first two year almost no one. Now that the neighborhood has started to fill up, I expect a lot of munchkins this year.
