So Greatful.........

I love it when a plan comes together--esp when you did not have one!  Well I fell in love with this stamp set from CTMH called SO GREATFUL. It is a multi step stamp set that is perfect for the fall. I also found what I thought was the perfect paper to use from Imaginisce---guess what it was named---SO GREATFUL!  NO JOKE!  I think they are a perfect pairing!
I used a kraft card base and used the Imaginisce pumpkin paper for the large matte.
You all know I love that cord ribbon from Hobby Lobby and I also used one of the new Hobby Lobby embossing folders called leaves for the green matte.  I used foam squares to elevate the layers and add some 3D.

So this is how I did the pumpkin.  I first stamped the orange base, the brown stem which was a second gen stamp, and the green vine.  I then stamped the word overlay in versa mark ink and added dark brown embossing powder and heated it up until it became glossy! I stamped the leaf on a scrap and cut it out--mini foam squares were put on the back and then I placed the leaf to give it even more pop!

I simply love how this turened out--
Make it a great one

Super Quick throw back gift....

So today I have such a fun throw back gift.  Do you remember making your own mix tapes?  Trying to get the songs off the radio on your boom box and giving them to that special someone--well I was in Michael's and found these great rub-on and I had these CD covers from MUJI (check it out-- amazing store).
So I made a mix CD which was so much easier with itunes than the radio ever was and used these for the cover--
I really like how it came out and it was only like 2.25 with tax all included (not the music).  I hope that someone like it!
Make it a great one-
