Happy Halloween Everyone

I love this time of the year when the temperature changes, the trees are array of colors. So I have 2 Halloween cards for you. One I sent my Granddaughter who also has a birthday just before Halloween and my oldest Great Grandson.

So let's get started:

I was in such a hurry to get this one out, that I forgot to take pictures of the inside. I made this one for my Granddaughter Heather. All I can say is the I used a Ghost Sizzix and retired DSP. On to the next one.

Inside of card
This one I made for my Great Grandson Brian. I think he will like the inside with skulls, bats and frogs.

Cardstock                 Brown Sugar, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
Markers                    Basic Black
Punches                    Decorative Label, Scallop Tag Topper
DSP                          Retired Halloween
Ribbon                     Trick or Treat designer ribbon
Stamp Set                Boo-Tiful Bags (Paper Pumpkin) and Toxic Treats

I love making these Scallop Tag Topper fold cards, they are quick and easy. Thanks for stopping by.

VC Rocks August Blop Hop

This month's Theme is Rock your Creativity with Stampin’ Up! Colors! 

I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with. There are so many colors and combos. Myself I chose some new colors and went a little artsy. What can I say!  I hope you enjoy the last Blog Hop of the season for VC Rocks. If you landed here first and want to go back to the beginning go to

Here is my card:

Stamp Sets                Lovely as a Tree, Best of Greetings
Stamp Pads               Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon and Soft Suede
Card Stock                Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White
Framelits                   Bitty Banners
Aqua Painter

This is a wonderful, card to make with a dramatic effect. I used my aqua painter with the new colors Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon for a water color background effect. Using Two of the stamps from Lovely as a Tree to give a forest  effect. I loved doing the stamp over with Mossy Meadow and the Larger Tree stamp to make that happen. I used one of banners from Bitty Banners framelits to make the sentiment. Just that simple, just that quick to make.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think. I enjoy reading the comments, it makes me a better stamper. To continue on go to

VC Rocks May's Blog Hop 2014

Welcome to VC Rocks first Blog Hop of the year. If you are new to our blog hops, you probably are wondering what VC Rocks is all about.

VC ROCKS stands for Virtual Convention and it ROCKS! This is a group of SU Demonstrators and non SU Demonstrators who love to stamp. We get together every year from April through August to hang out and have fun. The group hosts plenty of  card ideas and 3D swaps, challenges, make-n-takes and much more. So come along and have some fun you can start at the beginning at the VC Rock Blog  here at anytime. Click on each of the blogs and enjoy.

This months Theme: Rock your Creativity with Stampin’ Up! Tools or Embellishments.

Now onto the fun part as you can see there is not a lot of product to use. If you would like to make your own version of this card I have a video with step by step instructions under my video tab.

I tried several shots and couldn't bring it out.
