Haunt Ya Later Halloween Card

Hi Stampers!

Here is a really cute watercolored Halloween swap card that I received from Jill George. This card is so cool!!....She used the Haunt Ya Later Stamp Set (don't you just love the greeting--"Witch Way To The Candy"---adorable). The stamped image is stamped using Stazon Ink and it is stamped onto Watercolor Paper. She then used the Aqua Painter and ink to color in the image. Notice the background---the Watercolor Wash Stamp Set is used to create the cool background. The full supply list will be posted at the very bottom of this post.

Papillon Potpourri Watermelon Wonder Thank You

Hi Stampers!

Here is a quick card share for you all before I head on out the door. One of my favorite cards to make are "Thank You" cards. This card is this month's customer "thank you's". I decided to partner up Watermelon Wonder with Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set. The greeting comes from my all time favorite "go to greeting stamp", Teeny Tiny Wishes. Made use of several punches and used up some my scrap pieces of Watermelon Wonder Designer Series paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. 

Hope you enjoyed my card!

World of Dreams Friendship Card

Hi Stampers!

It was so nice to finally bask in some beautiful sunny weather in Kailua Kona. Yesterday was a full day of Pop Warner football on the West side of the Island. Both boys play in the Pee Wee division while my hubby is the Hamakua Cougar's certified medic for all three teams. The heat and humidity was on and boy did I feel for those boys. At the end of the day, the three divisions all played well and there games were very exciting to watch.  Can't wait till next week where we will travel to the wet side to play to Kona Marlins.

Today's card share is a friendship card that I made. I used the World of Dreams Stamp Set that comes in either wood mount or clear mount. I decided to stay monochromatic and team up the set with the In Color - Tip Top Taupe. I used the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper for the bottom of the card. The stamped image is accented with Linen Thread, one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, In Color Blossom Accent and Rhinestone Jewels.

It's Monday and the start of a new week. Wishing you all a wonderful and great week!!

Howl-O-Ween Treat Card

Hi Stampers!

Happy Aloha Friday Stamping Pals!....If you have been following me, you have noticed that I have been sharing cards from a recent card swap event that I have participated in. I hope you all are enjoying these daily shares. I felt that those that have made these cards put a lot of time and effort in creating their cards and that they shouldn't just be sitting in a drawer, but be out there for ALL to enjoy. I'm hoping that you are all enjoying these share just as much as I'm enjoying sharing them with you!

Here is a cute Halloween card using Stampin' Up!s Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set that is in the Holiday Catalog.  This stamp set has a coordinating Framlit that's make it so much easier to cut out the images---No fussy cutting!! In addition, when purchased together as a bundle you save 15%. I also love how the creator used the New Black Glimmer Paper for the the word "Boo".  The glitter paper can also be found in the Holiday Catalog. 

Unfortunately, there was no name to this card so I am unable to credit who the maker was.

Vintage Leaves Fall Card

Hi Stampers!

One thing I love about Fall is the beauty of nature - the falling and changing of the color of leaves. Living here in Hawaii, we really don't get to get to experience this part of Mother Nature. Basically, in order for us to experience this, we must live it through the eyes of our friends and family that live in North America or create it through rubber stamping.

Here is a swap card share for you using Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Leaves Stamp Set stamped in the 2014 - 2016 In Colors and cut using it's matching Leaflets Framlit (You can purchase it as a bundle to get a 15% Savings). The greeting is from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set. To add a little bit of character, there is some light sponging is Early Espresso on the Woodgrain embossed piece of card stock This beautiful card was made by Sheryl Spitzley.
