Twinkle - Time Is Running Out

Seriously people, this set is a must have!  Only a few more days until it's no longer available.  October 31st is the very last day to order this set.  Head on over to my website to order or contact me I can help you out.

Twinkle Stamp Set only available until October 31st!

I used markers for this one.  Love the ShinHan markers.  The colors I used are Z2467 Warm Grey, Z2452 Golden Yellow, Z2454 Leaf Green, Z2465 Turquoise Blue, Z2453 Lavender, and Z2448 Carmine.  Go HERE to order your very own markers. 

 For this card I used kraft cardstock and the White Pines paper packet.  I tied a snowflake charm on with thick twine and added a silver sequins for a finishing touch.

Again I used the White Pines paper packet, it's perfect for the holidays.  I cut the holly using our new Cricut cartridge Artistry.  A little fern thick twine, silver shimmer trim, and red enamel gems finished  it off.

Pumpkin Treat Bag - Om Nom Nom

Need a quick and easy Halloween treat?  Look no further!  This takes hardly anytime to create and who doesn't love cheese balls?

This treat bag was one of the make and takes at our last team meeting. It is so fun to get together with other consultants and be inspired and make fun things like this!   Join my CTMH family and you too can come play with us!  You can find more info on joining my team HERE.

To make this cute pumpkin all you need is a cellophane bag, ribbon, and tag supplies.  This one looked like a vase to get the round shape, I'm sure any cellophane bag would work though.  We took a stencil of a pumpkin face cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  We colored in the face using a good ol' sharpie marker.  You could tie with a ribbon and leave it at that or add a fun tag.  I love the Om Nom Nom stamp!  

This set is called Tasty Terrors (D1669).  It's so fun!  It comes from our Seasonal Expressions idea book.  It is for sure a set you can use year after year.  You can order this stamp set on my website

Happy Halloween!

This treat bag was designed by Sheri Rottler

Believe in October's Stamp of the Month

Let's take a closer look a this card I made using October Stamp of the Month - Twinkle.  My most asked question is how do I come up with ideas for my cards?  As much as I want to say they magically appear in my brain, that is rarely the case.

For this card I used my Originals Card Confidence Program.  The design I used you can find on page 99.  I love the Card Confidence Program because it gives you a sketch with cutting guides along with samples and creative tips.

Pinterest is great too, but this makes it simple with the cutting guide, saving you time trying to figure out dimensions and it doesn't require an internet connection! :-)

You can purchase your own Originals Card Confidence Program on my website along with the other products I used to create this card.

Products used to create this card:
9036 Originals Card Confidence Program
X7200B White Pines Paper Packet
X1410 Colonial White Card Bases Bulk
Z2650 Fern Ink
Z2116 Cranberry Ink
Z3093 Fern Twine
Z1985 Gold Shimmer Trim
