To show how easy these are to make, my grand-daughter, Holly, decorated this 12" x 12" tile (after spray-painting white) with the Spooky Things Décor Elements and new 1/2" Raven Lace Trim. She did such an awesome job, in about 10 minutes tops.
After spray-painting these metal pumpkins, Holly and I decorated again with "Spooky Things." This idea was a CASE from Brent Steele's presentation at Convention. The other table decorations were all done by Tami Ackerson, for Ronda's Holiday Event yesterday. Tami's presentation used the Halloween stamps, etc., from the new Holiday Mini. She asked if she could use my Décor Elements on her table (I felt so honored because she is such an awesome stamper). Sorry about my picture cutting off part of the elements, but you get the gist of it.
Here is a picture of Tami's entire table of projects (you need to right-click to enlarge as she has some beautiful projects). My projects using the Décor Elements are for a workshop I am having this week. The Hostess is going to love getting these for her front porch. In an upcoming post I will show you pictures of the Christmas projects for the workshop.
And of course, I need to have a Fall card!! Here is my card I did for Ronda's Leadership Meeting on Friday. We had a shoebox swap -- very first one for me and let me tell you, I learned a lot!! I won't even go into details about all the things I did wrong -- I just hope I get invited again!! This card uses the new "French Foliage" stamp set, which was just crying out to me to do a vintage design (yah, just about anything I buy has the same cry). I used all 6 stamps in the set on this card stamped on Glossy White cardstock (that had been brayed with River Rock ink), the new "Tasteful Trim" Bigz XL Die to cut the new "Deck the Halls" Designer Fabric (inked in Cajun Craze), the "Leaves #2" die stamped with the "Elegant Thank You" single stamp set. Yes, that was one of the things I did wrong -- I used way too much product!! I do have a problem with getting carried away with my cards, but trust me I'm still working on that issue.
All in all, I had a great weekend!! My next post will feature the cards from my card class yesterday. We had an awesome "ladies day," and they all created some fantastic cards. I so love seeing what they create because everybody adds their own style to each card. It's a win-win situation for all of us because they learn new things and they teach me new things.
Until next time, happy stamping, and "Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another." -- Romans 12:10
