Aren’t these cards so cute? They are little 3 1/2″ X 3 1/2″ gift enclosure card made with the Wondrous Wreath set and I just love them. In fact, I think I will be making several more of these cards.

Wondrous Wreat Trio of Cards

These little cards would be great to add to those gifts that you make or get for people that do things for you, like the mailman, delivery people or bus drivers. I try make little treats and these will be perfect for that give some of my homemade fudge.

I did make them a bit larger than the 3″ X 3″ size so the wreath would fit nicely. That means that I do not have a pre-made envelope for these cards so I will pull out my Envelope Punch Board to quickly make envelopes if I need them.

I saw a card somewhere with leaves made from a newsprint and I though that was an awesome idea so decided to create a card with the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I love the leaves as the focal image.

Chalkboard Newsprint For All Things

The sentiment from For All Things is stamped with White Craft Ink to create the chalkboard look. I left the chalkboard “clean”, but it would be great with white ink brushed on to give the “eraser” look.

Chalkboard Newsprint For All Things

I am working on making “cleaner” cards with a little more white space around the stamped images and embellishments. I am really happy with how this card turned out and can’t wait to make more newsprint leaves. Click on the links below to find these products in my Online Store.

These Halloween treat bags are perfect for giving to those special ghosts and goblins that come your way. We get very few trick-or-treaters so I plan to make these for everyone that comes by. I used paper and trim off the Clearance Rack so it is a very reasonable price.

Halloween Treat Favors
I started with a 6″ X 12″ piece of patterned paper and my finished bag is 4 1/2″ X 5″ with side gussets to hold treats. The little banner tag is made with the Fall Fest bundle.

Tips & Tricks for saving ribbon and paper when you are making your cards. The mats are actually two pieces and so is the ribbon. You can see all the details in the video tutorial below.

For All Things Handmade Card Stampin' Up!

You can get the fun accents to the sentiment with Washi Tape. I love the combination of the Washi Tape and the Decorative Label punch. It is an awesome addition to the Good Greetings set. I know I will be using these two products together again.

I use the sketch again from the other day, but this time I went with the White Christmas set this time. I used the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and the Smoky Slate Blendabilities to color the focal point.

White Christmas Colored with blendabilities

Because the stamps are photopolymer I was able to manipulate the stamp to get a flatter line when I was stamping the image. I inked only one side of the tree image and you can see how I did that in the following video.

I have filmed a video of me coloring the car and tree with the Blendabilities marker. (If you cannot see the video you may have to come to my site.)
