Stuff from the Open House

I had such a hard time trying to decide what to post today!! I have so many things from my Open House I've been dying to share, but I didn't want to spoil it for anyone who was comming! Here's the first Make & Take card.

Halloween Card
This card was inspired by this card on splitcoast. Making the goo across the middle was a touch from the Haloween projects shown at convention last year. You use a circle punch to take random punches at different depths and create a goo effect :)


Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Whisper White, Ghostly Greetings DSP - paper; Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss - ink; Batty for You, All Holiday - stamp set; Scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 16" punch, 1/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon - accessories;

Bella Card
This card was inspired by this monogram card on splitcoast - I really wanted to show another technique along with the gorgeous Bella Rose paper! And of course, we needed to use the scallop edge punch on Something!


Chocolate Chip, Bella Rose DSP, Whisper White, Brushed Gold - paper; Chocolate Chip, VersaMark - ink; Taffy Alphabet, Frames with a Flourish, Define Your Life - stamp sets; gold embossing powder, scallop edge punch - accessories;

And finally, from all the samples I plowed my way though in the last month, this is my most favorite! I saw the banana candies in a baggie, here and loved the idea! Here's my take on it :)


Yo-yo Yellow, So Saffron, Bella Rose DSP, Whisper White, Real Red, Kraft - paper; Chocolate Chip, VersaMark - ink; Sock Monkey - stamp set; white embossing powder, corner rounder, cellophane bag, banana candies - accessories;

The sock monkey is paper pieced.

Hey, I like the sock monkey with the runt bananas -- that's kind of neat!
