Halloween Challenge for RRR

This month we have a fun challenge on the RRR Blog to create fun
projects and cards for Halloween.  Today i have 2 things to share 
with all of you, a super cute card and a banner to decorate my house.

My first project is this card i did with a new Penny Black stamp
and some Graphic 45 papers that i had.  I created a simple backround
for it with fun oranges and blacks and then stamped the image on
white cardstock and colored it with chalk and colored pencil.
The beautiful orange ribbon goes perfect and has the tiniest bit of gold 
on the sides of it.  I just love how this one came out.

For my banner i found this neat pad of banner sheets at my local 
craft store.  All i had to do was tear them off and cut the purple 
backround that you see.  I used a stencil and some Studio G gesso
to create a backround and then i cut out some fancy circles with
one of my favorite Spellbinders dies and glued that on.

Then i inked around all the edges with orange and black chalk
ink and glued on these huge adhesive letters i found.  (If you 
have a cricut you can do them that way too).  To finish it
i tied a piece of the purple swirl ribbon through the whole
thing and tied lots of pretty ribbons from the
September ribbon assortment this month in between them all.  

I had lots of fun stickers from Doodlebugs Halloween collection
so i created these fun little scenes on the ends and a few in the
center with the letters.  It's a little more fun and not so scary but
i like it and can't wait to add more things around it on my fireplace.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure and share with
us what you create for the challenge and maybe you will win!!

Have a great day... Teresa

Happy Birthday to you Card

Wow-- i can't believe that the week went by so fast.  My new job is
really fun and we have lots to do getting ready for the Christmas
open house this week so with everyday life added in---
it's been a little crazy.

But i had a chance to make up a special birthday card with one of
the new Spellbinders release dies and some gorgeous papers

The new dies are called Labels 42 and Labels 42 Decorative Accents.
They are some of my favorites and the details on them are amazing.
There is also one more die available in the trio but
 i just wanted to use the 2 together today.

To make the designs really pop i used white cardstock from Worldwin
and then layered it with the gorgeous dies using foam dots between the layers.
The sentiment is from Penny Black stamps and the flowers i had in my 
stash.  I also used one of my favorite foliage dies called Sprigs.
It's perfect to use whole or tear apart for smaller projects.

I just love the colors and design of the papers and have lots more
projects to share soon.  Thanks for stopping over today and i hope
that you all have a really wonderful weekend :)

Hugs and Smiles to you.... Teresa

RRR September Blog Hop...

It's time again for our Really Reasonable Blog hop for this month
and we have lots of fun projects to share using our new September
 Ribbon Assortment filled with lots of yummy prints and colors.

You should have arrived here from Bonnies Blog and wow
was her project ever gorgeous.... and now i get to share mine :)

For my project today i wanted to make something up to
put in the house that i could add a fun photo each year of our
halloween events.  So i found this frame from my local craft
store and painted it with fun colors of orange, black and purple
and then i covered it with cute halloween paper i had.  The
papers are from Pine Cone Press and the cute stickers are
from Doodlebug.

Here you can see some of the pretty ribbons that i added at the top
and at the bottom to finish it.  I really love all the bright fun colors
in this set and there is lots more that you can get to coordinate in
the seasonal section of Halloween too.  So have fun and create
something amazing that you can decorate with too!!

New Oval Bliss Die

I have another new die to share today that you can preorder from
Spellbinders and it's really pretty.  I love lots of ovals and circles
and this is another one that is really beautiful to mix and match
with all the other ones that you have in your SB Stash.

This new die is called Oval Bliss and i had the perfect LOTV 
stamp to fit inside.  I colored the image with chalks and 
colored pencils and the papers are from MME.  I love that the
grey and tan is perfect for the little teddy bear image and the phone.
The twine you can get from RRR shop online and they have lots
and lots of colors to use for all your projects.

So that's all for today and be sure and stop back for our RRR
Blog hop tomorrow, it's going to be a fun one :)

Fall Page to share today

So we are finally getting a little rain our way here in Southern
California and it's really nice.  I can't wait to go to Riley's this year
and get pumpkins and go have lunch at Hawk's head house.  I am 
sure it's going to be a great year for pumpkins.  

This page was one that i did with photos from last year when we went
to visit Indiana.  They had so many pumpkin patches and one had
these giant pumpkins so we all jumped out and had fun getting some
photos.  My favorite part was my niece pretending to be a scarecrow.
She looked so cute so i just had to do this page of her.  
I used lots of fall papers and fussy cut some of the tags and leaves
to make the border on it. The flowers are from Bo Bunny and prima.
 It was super quick and easy to do.

And one last quick thing for today is a fall card that i did
with this cute paper from Imaginesce and one of the fun little
stickers that came with it.  The die in the back is another one from
the new release. It is called Decorative Labels 41 and it's another of my favs.
  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and
the metal leaf is from Magenta.

Hello with Flowers

Happy Monday everyone and I hope that you had a wonderful and 
relaxing weekend.  I had the whole weekend off so i got alot of gardening
done and made lots of projects to send off for pubs and classes.
It was really nice so today i have a new card to share with you from
that same new release of Trendy dies. 

I really love this new die too and like all the others there is
so much that you can do with it. It is called Contemporary Strip 
and I decided to just use simple card stock in 4 colors and i 
cut/embossed the design and matted it and then used the 
Spellbinders Sunflower die and i made it in white and flat
 (so that i can mail it) and put that on the front too.
There is also some brand new word dies that are just released
and i thought this would be a fun set to show off because there are
 lots of great sayings in each set.  The hello die was just a bit long
so i snipped off a bit of the right side and it fit perfect under 
the flower.   I really like it and it took no time at all.

Here are the sayings cut out in paper and you get 2 of them in
each of the new sets.  And the neat thing is you can cut them in any
color that you want to use.  No stamping and no mess.  I love that.

Hope you like this new die too and be sure and visit the website
so that you can see all the new dies.. They are amazing as always!!

Have a wonderful day... Teresa
