TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Halloween Harvest

I will be back to do my write up when I return to Pagosa ......  Back from Denver and the trip was successful for my friend, Bonnie, at the Merchandise Mart.  The Buying for her Store, Colorado Christmas Shoppe, went well but we have been to better shows in the past.  Next "shopping spree" may be in Las Vegas in 2016.

My featured card started because of the 12 x 12 paper seen in the background.  Way toooo fun to use for the backdrop of this card.  I embossed the Sentiment, Bat, Crow and Fence with clear embossing powder.  The Set is from TWO PAPER DIVAS .... a new one!!!

Enjoy .......

TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Circle Stamp

Okay ..... hurrah for me .... I was able to put my newer Watermark on my card!!  But, I am still working in the old system.  Maybe next week I will be closer to working totally in the New Computer System.

I will be back to do all my write ups for the past few weeks but I have to get myself ready to go to Denver at 6:00 in the morning (6:00 AM) Yikes!!!  Going to the Denver Merchandise Market with my friend, Bonnie.  We are going to check out some product for her Christmas Store here in Pagosa. After doing that tomorrow, we will go stay with my kids!!  Time for Granddaughter time (3) for just a short while.   Later .....

Okay, I am back!!  Love the new "circle" stamp set from TWO PAPER DIVAS called "Silhouette Circles" located in the category "Sentiments" in their online store.  What a fun set to use in so many different ways.  As you can see from the above card, I took scrap pieces of white cardstock and embossed them in three different folders.

Short and sweet report because it is pretty obvious what I did.  Enjoy your Card Making!!!

TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Halloween 2015

Yes, ladies it will soon be time to WHOOP IT UP with candy and scary things we like to drag out of our storage areas in the home.  This actually is my husband's favorite time of the year!!  For years I have made "real" egg ornaments and have two different trees (Christmas and Easter) but I always wanted to do a Halloween tree and my daughter has begged me to make her eggs for her trees and to also do a Halloween one.  But neither of us have bought the cute things to go in my eggs for this crazy, spooky time of the year.  If I ever do .... I will post it (the tree) for you to see.

Okay ..... gotta go finish cards for my next classes this coming Tuesday.  Then I will be back to finish this information and also one which I need to finish further down on this list!!  See ya later ......

Here I am finally .....  My weeks just "roll by" with teaching classes and then prepping for those classes.  I spend a lot of time on the computer and go back to school myself online in this wonderful Card Making Industry.  One of these days I will post all the symbols of ALL of the Online Card Classes I have taken over the years..... Love, Love, Love all of them!!

My Two Paper Divas card this week is composed of the following stamp sets:

  • Creepy Crawly Halloween
  • Wicked Wear Accessories
  • Large Mason Jar Toppers
  • Mason Jars
I used silver cardstock for the Jar Lid to make it stand out on the card and looking like a metal lid.  Goggle Eyes on the Owl just completed the card!

Happy Halloween to ALL ........BOO!!!

P. S.  While I was in Denver last weekend, I looked in Michael's and they do not have any tiny things that I liked to put in my egg ornaments.  So, I think I need to resort to checking out something online. Maybe next year I can have a Spooky Tree!!

TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Little House with Sun Die

Sneak peek at a new stamp (the House) from a darling set due to be released any day from TWO PAPER DIVAS.  Love, love, love this House set and cannot wait to use each of them on more cards. The landscape and sun dies I have had a number of years and thought it was a perfect timing to drag both of them out.  But, I cannot take total credit on this one because I have seen something similar somewhere on the net.

I will be back to finish this write up.  But, I need to get back to prepping for my Tuesday classes coming up.  I have been ill for a week and I need to finish.  BYE!!

Hi, yes I am back.  Did not realize that I needed to revisit so many of my cards and bring them up-to-date.  Okay .....

Love this tree and slope die very much and love to use it.  Because of adding the House to the card, one of the trees had to be cut off but can you find where I added the tree?  The sun is another die that is actually kinda cute in this concept.  But first and foremost are the TWO PAPER DIVAS stamps:

  • My Neighborhood
  • Bee Happy (Bee and the Sentiment)
I love cloud dies and do you notice that I placed one of the clouds upside down for a different shape!!

Fun mix of dies and stamps!!  Happy Card Making ......
