Fall is Coming--Maybe

Maybe if I stamp Fall cards, the weather will cool down.  It's worth a shot!  These two cards were made using products from the NEW Holiday Catalog.  Enjoy---

Love the Effect

Embossing Paste has become my new favorite thing to use to add dimension to a project.  It's one of those things that you have to give a try.  I believe you learn by doing and the more you use it, the better you get at it.  Think of spreading the paste like buttering toast.  It doesn't take a lot to cover the area.  Dries fast.  Adding color takes just a few drops of ink (mix it in a small plastic cup like you would get for salad dressing at a fast food place--comes with a lid so you can use it again).  It's about $20 for the materials you need---embossing paste, pattern masks, and palette knives.

We played last Thursday night and this is what we did---yes, these ideas are both "cased."

This Little Piggy

When Aubri was 6 months old, I took this picture of her at Mandi's college graduation.  I always called it, "There's My Piggy."  So when I the the "This Little Piggy" stamp set, I thought of my Aubri (who will be 10 in November!).  She was and is still such a happy girl and piggies tend to put a smile on someone's face.  Hope it makes you smile, too.

This Little Piggy is one of the sets we'll be using on Saturday---Easy and fast, but with happiness embedded in it.   ~~Susie
