Hi there!  Well it is that time of year when school is starting and along with that the leaves are changing color and starting to fall.  Next month is Halloween so I decided to start making up some fall cards including Halloween.  But before that, I made another gift card holder but for a baby.  I just want to show you that you can make the same design but with different paper and embellishments you get a different look entirely.

There is no glitz to this card.   I used buttons that are plain and simple and of course the paper I used is definitely not sophisticated but it is very cute.  

And now for the first of many Halloween cards. 
The stamp I used is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, Inc.  I love the cats in this card, they are just waiting to get in trouble.  After I stamped, I colored the moon, then masked it so that I could brush on grey and purple ink all over the white card stock.  I then used small crystals for their eyes.  I mounted the entire thing on grey card stock.  This card was one dimensional so that made it fast and easy to do.  Using a large stamp can afford you the ability to complete cards quickly and then you can have fun with the embellishments.
