Making Spirits Bright

 So, I had a workshop this past weekend with a group of FABULOUS ladies and my hostess requested a wine tag.  So, I pulled out my Making Spirits Bright stamp set from the Holiday Catalog and came up with something festive for Halloween and this stamp is PERFECT for the wine tag.
I started by cutting a piece of Basic Black card stock to 3x6 and scoring it at 2".  I punched a hole for the neck to come through with the 1 3/8" circle punch.  I layered up the front with Pumpkin Pie card stock and a piece of Monster Mash DSP (the ghosts were just too perfect NOT to put with the sentiment).  I cut a piece of Gold Glimmer paper with an Oval from the Oval Framelits and then another piece of Whisper White card stock to stamp and color on for the front.  I colored with the Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities the drink and the eyeball olive with Old Olive Blendabilities.  I stamped out the Happy Halloween from the same set on Whisper White in Momento Black ink and flagged the end.  To the top of the layers, I added a black button from the Nuetrals pack with some Tangerine Tango Baker's Twine tied in a bow.  I added some Crystal Effects to the "drink" to make it look wet. I love this set and plan to do some gift giving at Christmas with some of the other stamps in the set.

Wonderous Wreath

 First off, let me start by saying I cannot believe it's been one month since I posted on my blog....secondly, this is why!  I took some time recently to keep my 6 month old grandson for a week and just "forgot the rest of the world" ....I had stuff to post, but being on the computer was the last thing I wanted to do with him here.  I was pooped by week's end, BUT I wouldn't change that week for anything...
 He is just a HAPPY baby and that made it so much more of a GREAT time with us.  I hated walking away from him on Saturday when we sent him home. :(  We took lots of pictures and these are some of my favorites.
 As I said, this is how he is most of the time...PRECIOUS~
 I have cards to show from October's card classes.  I just now got to taking photos of them as you see above, my camera was busy elsewhere.  I started by layering up Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze card stock onto a Whisper White base.  On the top layer of Whisper White, I stamped out the sentiment from Mingle All the Way in Blackberry Bliss.  I stamped out the wreath in Crushed Curry and then another time with the Cajun Craze ink and cut out using the Wonderous Wreath Framelits.
I used some Dimensionals to pop up the wreath  and then stamped out the bow using the Blackberry Bliss and also cutting it out with the framelits. I finished it off by adding a Basic Pearl to the center.
My goal is to get all my cards from this month's class posted this week and then I will have some workshop projects and my Christmas Class projects from my class I'm hosting this evening.  Thank you for stopping by.
