Gotta Love that Spooky Cat Stamp Set & Cat Punch by StampinUP!!


 I used 3 pcs. of the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper on this card.
Yes, in case you don't know- that pumpkin was NOT stamped!
I simply cut it from a sheet of the designer paper- easy peasy  :)

I made a shadow around the cat by just snipping a black cat in half (sorry- does not sound good)
When its paper, its allowed though!  Just cut vertically and extend to the left & right.

The Hearth & Home Thinlits were used for the window and sill.

Color Combo includes Pumpkin Pie, Black, and Vanilla



THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.........LORI

The Big Shot die set is called "Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies" (pg. 6-Holiday book)
Thank you Gayle for this labor of love you gave to each duckling who swapped!!
It is very much appreciated, my friend.

"Party Like A Rock Star" and have a great Birthday w/ Marquee Messages by StampinUP


For this Birthday card and recent class project, I used the 
Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper

Both sentiments come from the Stamp Set "Marquee Messages".

Color Combo includes: Crushed Curry, Black, White & Pool Party

The Balloon Bouquet Punch was used along with the Layering Squares Framelit Dies.

I found this card layout on Pinterest I believe, and
switched up a couple things to make it my own.

Anytime, you find a project on my blog you would like to CASE-
please feel free!  I'm more than willing to share or I would not have this blog (smile)

Thanks for stopping.......Lori

"Flurry of Wishes" Stamp Set, 3 Ink Colors, & a Sponge Dauber- Easy Peasy!!

 Color Scheme:  Flirty Flamingo, Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, & White

The snowflakes & the sentiment come from the Flurry of Wishes Set (pg. 116- Annual Catalog)
I used a "Sponge Dauber" in the Flirty Flamingo Stamp Pad & went to town!

One snowflake was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink & then punched out w/ the 3/4 in. circle punch.
Of course, 2 different markers were used to color the sentiment before stamping.

I hope you enjoy this winter card and if you have a question, just ask.
Thanks very much-  Lori
