Working on Christmas cards today between loads of laundry.  This is the first time I've ever made a spinner card and it was fun!  The design was CASEd from Michelle Rey on SCS.  Stamp set is Snow Much Fun, card stock is Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Whisper White.  Images were colored with Stampin Write markers.  I LOVE Dazzling Diamonds glitter but waited until after scanning the card to add it along the snow bank.  We will make this one in stamp club next month!

One last Halloween card for this year.  This was a quick and easy one created using the Festive and Fun stamp set, Frightful Sight DSP, Basic Black and Old Olive card stock.  The Old Olive card stock was run through the crimper, the image was colored with Stampin Write markers, and the bats were punched from a punch I've had for a very long time.

Here's a card we will be making in stamp club this Saturday.  It was made using the emboss resist technique, Lovely as a Tree stamp set, a script background stamp, Whisper White, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, and Old Olive card stock, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, and Old Olive Classic ink, leaves cut with a Sizzix die in my Big Shot, and linen thread.  I added a little Log Cabin and Gold Glow Smooch Spritz to the leaves and like how it makes them look like real fall leaves.  This could be a masculine birthday card, a get well or thinking of you card so club members will be able to choose from a variety of stamps for the inside sentiment.

I've been working on bookmarks this week.  I used the Inspired by Nature stamp set, Stampin' Write markers to color the rubber before stamping, Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Naturals White card stock, a jumbo eyelet, and Early Espresso ribbon on this one:
For this one I used Crumb Cake and Naturals White card stock, Bermuda Bay DSP from a retired Prints Pack, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, an embossing folder, Basic pearls, a jumbo grommet, and Bermuda Bay ribbon.
On this one I used the Your a Gem and the retired Knobbly Gnomes stamp set, Stampin' Write markers to color the gnome, Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, and Natural White card stock, the Square Lattice embossing folder, and a miniature art hook to hold the red and blue ribbon.

Welcome to the 14th stop on the Hopping Just for the Fun of It October blog hop!  If you are hopping along in order you arrived here from Raissa's blog.  If not, and you want to see all of the fun projects we have for you this month, just click on the link at the end of each post.  You will also find a list of all the blogs in our hop here on our home blog.
Our theme this month is Halloween and Fall Happenings.  I used Haunted Forest, one of the new a la carte stamps in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog.  It was stamped in black StazOn ink on glossy white paper with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Poppy Parade Classic inks sponged on.  The moon was created by placing a circle punched from a Post It note over the owl before sponging on the colors.  Frightful Sight DSP was layered onto the Basic Black card stock base and some retired black and white SU ribbon complete the card.
Today is also the 6th annual World Card Making Day!  I hope you enjoy this expression of your creativity and the connection with other card makers and the recipients of your cards that is the heart of card making.  The next stop along our hop is the blog of Holly and The DogEnjoy!
