10 Cards | 1 Kit ā€“ Spellbinders November Card Kit (Part 2 of 2)

Hi There,

Happy we’re half-way there day! Although this time of year I’d be ok with the weeks going a little slower – so much to get done, sigh. I’m back today with part 2 of the Spellbinders November Card Kit. Here’s what I came up with:

and here are your close-ups:


I was tempted to go all out and cover this snow globe with glossy accents or acetate or half of a globe Christmas ornament but reigned myself in…less usually is more šŸ™‚

This is my favorite card from all 10 – I love Rudolph and his Mrs.

This was super simple and quick. I love that they include 2 of every ephemera – sometimes you love a piece so much it’s hard to choose what to use it on!

What can I say…I’m feeling the pink and the red this season. I could’ve used about 50 of that cocoa mug die cut.

Another quick and easy card. The glossy accents really make those berries pop!

I’m on my way to Pennsylvania to visit with family but before I head out, I wanted to wish all my crafty friends a very Happy Thanksgiving! On that note, I’ve got one more Thanksgiving card to share with you using Stamping Bella’s Thanksgiving Oddball. Here’s the video of what I came up with:

Here are some stills of the finished card:


She is so cute – I love her crazy hair!


I’m wearing leggings so I’m covered!

Art Impressions | Pumpkin Spice


Today I’ve got a watercolor card to share with you using the Stamptember special edition AI Pumpkin Spice stamp set. This image is adorable – these ladies look like the best of friends chatting over their lattes. Don’t you just want to know what story she is telling? Here is the video of what I came up with:

Here are some still shots of the finished card:


I followed the packaging art for where to add in the shadowing but added some brighter colors to my scene.


Such a cute sentiment – it’s definitely pumpkin latte season.


Thanks so much for stopping by, hope I was able to give some inspiration. xoxo, Sarah

3 Cards | Spellbinders October Large Die Kit

Hello there,

Today I’m sharing 3 cards I created using the Spellbinders October Large Die Kit. This truck die is absolutely fantastic – it’s the reason I checked out the kits in the first place and I’m so glad I saw that sneak peek because I’m loving all of these kits so far. The really great part about this large die kit in particular, is how versatile it is – you can use this die set all year round! Here is the video of what I came up with:

Here are some photos of the finished cards:


This card is my favorite. I love the blue truck with the orange pumpkins, it’s so perfectly Fall.

1 inside

I stamped out this sentiment from the SSS Thankful Heart set using Lawn Fawn Hippo ink and brought in a little piece of the orange to finish up the sentiment.

1 close

Cardstock Colors: Nightshift Blue, Cement Gray, Steel Gray, Red Hot, Jelly Bean Green, Tandy Orange, Orange Fizz


As much as I love the truck die, I think the snow is what really makes the picture. I’m still thinking about adding some puffy dots of that marvy snow pen in the “sky” in addition to the sequins I added.

2 inside

This Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings stamp set is wonderful – you’ll see me use it lots more during the coming Christmas Series.

2 close

Cardstock Colors: Wild Cherry, Cement Gray, Steel Gray, Red Hot, Field Day, Chocolate Brown


I created this card using the sample that came with the die set (love that they include this!). I just made a few changes and I used some of the pattern paper that came in the October card kit.

3 inside

I used SSS Birthday Bits stamp set for the sentiments on this card. I love this font and go back to it time and time again when I’m creating birthday cards. It embosses wonderfully too!

Cardstock Colors: Bubblegum, Cement Gray, Steel Gray, Red Hot, Smooth White

13 Days of Halloween ā€“ Day 12 | Trick or Treat!

Hey There,

This is my last card for the Halloween season this year. I will have one more video to finish up the 13th day but I need to wait until after I’m sure the recipient has it as I don’t want to ruin the surprise. For this card, I combined two MFT stamp sets to create my trick or treaters. That’s one thing I really love about MFT – their stamps are for the most part sized the same and very easy to mix together (Lawn Fawn does this too).

Here is how I put it together:

Here are your close-ups:


This is another sweet simple card, and probably my second favorite of the bunch this year.


I kept the inside really clean as well.


Copics: E00, E11, E13, E15, E18, R20, N0, N4, Y32, Y35, B99, R17, RV66, YG25

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Halloween Series this year – I’ve really enjoyed making everything for you! xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween ā€“ Day 4 | I’m BATS about you

Hello there,

I’ve been working all weekend on projects for this Halloween series and am in love with how this card came out. It’s been in my head for a few days so I was really happy to get it down on paper and that it turned out as I was planning. Here is the video of how it came together…

Here are some stills of the finished card:


Doesn’t that look like a cave full of bats! This is the first time I’ve colored in a background around stamped images and I’m for sure doing more of that.


Here is a close up of that little cutie! you can see how that colored pencil (though not necessary) gives just that little bit of extra.

Prismacolors: 1054, 289, 1013


With the front being so busy I kept the inside simple, but couldn’t resist adding a little pop of orange washi tape.


Here is that rip strip in action:


As always, thanks for stopping by. Hope I was able to give you some inspiration for your next project! xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween ā€“ Day 2 | Giveaway winner!! & 5 Cards, 1 Kit


Happy Friday! A big congratulations to Lynn Griffin you are the winner of my giveaway – Please email me your address and I’ll get your goodies in the mail!

For today’s Halloween video I used the goodies from my Halloween card kit to create 5 spooky cute greetings cards. You can check out the video here:

Here are some still shots of the finished cards:


I’m in love with these web doilies! Wanted to put one on every card, but I refrained. I used a mini wobbler (trimmed down in half) to pop up a spider sticker and added some cotton thread for extra webbing.

1 inside

For the inside, I added the matching smaller spider and drew a web line with a marker. I used Simon Says Stamp’s new Frightful Fun stamps for all the inside sentiments and I stamped this one with Lawn Fawn Fake Tan ink.

1 close2

Such a lovely bunch of trick or treaters šŸ™‚ I used some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide to color the book page fringe and create a little grass for them to stand.

2 inside

Since the front was so busy, I left the inside simple.

2 close3

Those white pumpkins – something about the pink eyes is just adorably creepy. I popped this guy up with some foam squares and his spooky sentiment was the perfect finish to that embossed phrase.

3 close

This sentiment was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and I finished off the inside with a sticker that matches the florals from the outside.

3 inside4

I really love this card, it’s soft and very lullaby-ish (if that even makes sense, lol). I added some American Crafts gold paint to the book page and it really gives this beautiful warm sheen to it. Then I used my fingers to rough up the edges a bit.

4 inside

I love this inside too – the mix of white, yellow and orange makes me think of candy corn every time I look at it.

4 close5

I couldn’t resist using another one of those webs. The saying on the darker tombstone is really fun – this would make a great party invite.

5 inside

With that thought in mind, I finished this off with that frightful fun sentiment and a little bat sticker.

5 close

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I was able to give you some spooky inspiration. xoxo, Sarah
