How Did We Get to Thursday?

How did we get to Thursday already??
I am in disbelief at how time is zooooooming along!  Whoooooooosh!

It's past time to share ... so share I will!
Since Fall has officially arrived this week, it's time for my Thank You's to reflect a more seasonal approach.  Here's the latest:



Even though I don't generally send 'Halloween' cards, I do send cards with a Fall or seasonal theme of sorts ... and I absolutely 'had' to have this year's Happy Haunting DSP.  Whether you like Halloween itself, or just enjoy the seasonal fun + colors, this paper is for you ... and for me!  I love the non-imaged sides of every sheet of the papers as well as the Halloweeny sides for treat bags and fun creations.  The page featured on this card coordinates perfectly with the Boho Chic Textured Impressions embossing folder too, for super-simple theme carryover.

The sentiment banner is easily created by cutting a 1"-wide strip of Very Vanilla C/S, then punching each end with the Banner Triple punch ... Yeah ... I do adore that punch!  I stamped with a small branch stamp from the Thankful Forest Friends set, then wrapped a strip of Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tape around one end before adding a cut "thanks" in Basic Black using the Greetings Thinlits. Try the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen next time you're adhering a thin-lined item such as the Greetings Thinlits or other word-style die cuts.  The ultra-thin point of delivery is terrific, and it's non-clogging via a splendid feature within the lid.  Yay!  Naturally ... Stampin' Dimensionals are lifting up the sentiment banner ... (Perhaps you already know that I consider them as a "must".)   All products will be listed as a group below for your convenience.

Punchy Lovin'!

Wow!   Where oh where has this week gone?
Whooooosh!   That's fassssssssssssssssst!

Here's my latest Valentine, featuring a couple of my favorite punches and new items from the Occasions catty!


This one is very easy, and it all started with the PPA237 sketch challenge this week.  

I knew that I wanted to use the new Stacked with Love Paper Stack, and those diagonal stripes seemed to insist on being used!   (I think it reminds me of oxford fabric stripes ... but enough about old faves.)
I just adore the itty bitty hearts in white on black from the paper stack, and that led me straight to the darling new Bow Builder Punch.  Honestly ... this punch is going to be one of my faves for a very long time.  Just so easy and cute!  You'll find the punch for these little red hearts as a part of the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack

The thermometer has taken a nose-dive here today.  Hopefully you're all cozy, and have found a bit of inspiration to warm up your stampin' table soon.   Stay warm, my friends!

Wasabi Birthday Wishes!

Welcome to March, everyone! 

It's been a crazy-busy time here for the past 2 1/2 weeks or more ... so I owe y'all a big apology for missing blog posts.  So off we go into our brand new month ... getting that much closer to finishing off this incredibly cold & icy & snowy & crazy winter!  Yay!!

Let's do it up in green!

Wild Wasabi green is the main color here, and it's CAS for an easy start.   I honestly adore the Watercolor Wonder designer series papers from the Occasions catalog.  This green chevron is just one of the several awesome papers in the set.  And, it will matches beautifully with your Gumball Green cardstock as well!  Marina Mist cardstock & ink are used in small amounts as an accent color.  'Subtles Candy Dots' are an easy little addition ... they're even self-adhesive!

See those bitty banners on the lower  portion?  The 'Banner Blast' stamp set (133554) and the 'Banner' punch ( 133519) are FREE Sale-A-Bration choices!

That's it for now!  I have several more creations to share here this month.   Hoping that you found some inspiration here today!
