All Occasion Masculine Card

Happy Halloween everyone.  While I don't have a Halloween card to share with you today, I do have an all occasion masculine card to show you.  I always need a good masculine card but seem to never have one on hand.  I made this card by using the Come Away With Me 8X8 Paper Pad by Graphic 45
and a few items I had in my stash. It was so quick and simple that I made a few extra to have on hand. 
Hope you have a great  Halloween and are able to recover from the sugar overload over the weekend. LOL

So Thankful For You

Good morning!  It's Anita here today sharing a fall card using a Lawn Fawn stamp and coordinating die.

I used the So Thankful clear stamp set and coordinating So Thankful custom die to make this clean and simple fall card.  I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock using Memento ink.  I colored the pumpkins with copics and then die-cut them.

No Peeking by Mama Elephant

 Just popping in to show one of the tags that I made this weekend with the new, adorable  No Peeking (Mama Elephant) stamp set and cute papers from the Santa Express (Doodlebug Designs) 6X6 paper pad.

  One of the sheets are these cute little Christmas Wish List tags. I punched the top of each one with a Notebook (EK) paper punch. I wanted it to look like a piece of notebook paper that a little one would write his letter to Santa on. I colored the reindeer and peppermints with Copic Markers. I used a Wink Of Stella glitter pen on the peppermints to give them a little sparkle! And the red ribbon was the final touch!  Hope you like my tag!
Thanks for stopping by!

The items that I used on my tag are available at the 7KIDS Store

Penny Black - Christmas with Mimi

Good morning everyone, Jo here! Happy Saturday! It's time for a NEW challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! The challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist (Multiple Folds)".

Today I created a holiday card using Penny Black - Christmas with Mimi. This is one of the many images that comes in this clear stamp set. To accent the image, I used Wink of Stella in Clear and Red, for that added shimmer. The designer paper is from Lawn Fawn - Snow Day.

For the "Multiple Folds" twist, I created a large rosette, using a die, to border the circle image. On the bottom of the card, I embossed white cs with small polka dots and used the Mama Elephant - Landscape Trio Dies to create a fluffy snow border.

Lastly, I white embossed the sentiment from Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings on vellum paper. For red accents, I added a trio of red sequins and a red satin bow for a pop of color.

So that completes my card for this challenge. Can't wait to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by! Come join in on the fun over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! Enjoy your weekend!

Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

Tomorrow is time for another ANYTHING GOES Challenge here at 7KIDS!
And this challenge has a twist... Multiple Folds!
I think goodie boxes fall into that category!

I always like to share Halloween treats with my friends. So I made these cute little "baskets in a box". The video tutorial to make these adorable little boxes can be found hereBelieve it or not, you make these with a 6X6 piece of paper and the Envelope Punch Board. 
Easy, peasy and so much fun!!!

After I made all of my little boxes, it was time to decorate!

I pulled out my favorite Halloween stamp set-Bootastic by Mama Elephant.  I stamped each image with Black Tuxedo Memento ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending white card stock.
Each image was then colored with Copic Markers.

The ribbons were custom made for the boxes. I cut several lengths of white seam binding. I then dyed them with Distress Inks and water. Crinkled them up and set them aside to dry.
I filled the little boxes with candy and tied them up!
I can't wait to share them with my coworkers!

Please join the fun with our new Anything Goes Challenge starting tomorrow!!!
