Good Morning to all;
Here is my take on the Fall Card for SSC....
The background is embossed with Versamark and clear EB. I brayered Ranger Big and Juicy Spice on glossy cardstock. The leaves are TAC (retired). Cardstock is #80
Cocoa and #80 Cappacino from Marco. The metallic gold is also Marco. It is hard to see the versamark stamped leaf with autumn in small square. The little leaves are punched from metal and glued around the orange floss.
I enjoyed making this card and I hope you enjoy viewing it. Thanks for coming by and have a good week!!

Now that I finished these Halloween Treat Boxes for Barb's Macabre Monday Challenge #8 here
they are in full photo. But the close up photos are better. All stamps used are TAC and the box template is from Oriental Trading. I made 25 but only have about 10 kids that come around. I fill with 3-4 kinds of candy from the $1.00 store.

The white ghost on the gray boxes is stamped on white sticker paper and cut out. I only made 6 gray boxes so needed 12 ghosts. I used a black stardust glitter pen on the ghost eyes and mouth and on the cracks on tombstone. Tombstone stamp a $1.oo bin special at Michael's. I did emboss the black box but decided to just use Moonlight white Brilliance Ink on the others since I made 6 more and then adding the orange circle with an eyelet ( see top photo) I had a good time making these, hope you like them.

Presenting My "pierced circle bird card"....
I had to make a template for piercing circles, so I made 2 and using the cuttlebug and Nesties sure makes it all so much quicker to cut heavy plastic. But on to the card, TAC sets peace and retired sparkle.
Burnt Umber ink used on Kraft paper and all other cdstock and paper is DCVW. Fussy cut the wing and poppped up. Made several with matching envelope(striped paper). Nothing special this week just working on Halloween treat boxes. Must tell you about great purchase this week. I earned $50.00 in gift-cards at thru My reading emails and ads. I ordered Nesties Plain Ovals and Labels #1 each was around $19.99. Also got Ranger Tuscan Garden Alchol Ink set for $8.99 and the shipping for whole order was only $2.99. I ordered on Wed, it shipped Thur. and I got it Fri!!! So I can play all weekend. But I had gotten Free Movie Tickets fromeating alot of Rice Pudding and I took My Tom to the Movies on Sat. and we saw FAME!!! OMG, You gotta see it!!
