Basket of Pumpkins

This pumpkin basket is a flat pop up card.  It is one of my Holiday Extravaganza class projects that I did the end of October.  Didn't it turn out to be a super cute fall card.

I fussy cut out the pumpkins from the Painted Autumn designer paper.
 Here is what it looks like from the side view when it is standing up.

When it lays flat it fits perfectly into our medium envelope & is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" size.  
I added a 4x4" white piece of card stock to the back side of it for the words & signature area.
The pumpkins are sitting in the basket from the 'Basket of Wishes' stamp set.

Here are the measurements & the supplies:

Happy Thanksgiving!!

 Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family!!!  Wishing you all many blessings on this special day!!
Here is a pretty fall shaker card that was one of my October monthly class cards.  

Check out the gold sequins that are behind the window sheet- that is behind the leaf cut out!
Here is a closer look at the baby wipe technique I did with the leaves here.

How do you do the baby wipe technique?  Take a baby wipe, put it on a plate (something protecting your working surface under it), put drops of ink refill onto the baby wipe & that then becomes your "ink pad" to tap your stamp into for a rainbow of different colors!
stamp sets:  'Colorful Seasons' & 'Seasonal Lantern'
card stock:  Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Window Sheet
designer paper:  Painted Autumn 
ink:  Cajun Craze
ink refills:  Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie & Cajun Craze
other:  Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Thick Twine, dimensionals, Glue Dot, baby wipes, Foam strips, sequins

You can see another card BY CLICKING HERE, that I previously posted on my blog that is similar to this one, that I made that card with left over pieces from class. 
I hope you have a very special THANKSGIVING DAY!
Happy Stamping!

A Snowflake Embossed Acetate box!

WOW!!  Check out this beautiful Snowflake Embossed Acetate box, using the Winter Wonderland Embossing folder!!

This was another one of my projects from my Holiday Extravaganza class last month.
It was so easy to do!  And it is just so pretty!  It was a big hit- forsure! 

How do you do it?
You just slide the embossing folder down into the Acetate box.  The top side of the box is between the embossing folder & the back side of the Acetate box is on the outside of it!  It works like a gem!  SO quick & easy & so neat!  

I decorated the outside of the Acetate box using the Stripped Black & White Ribbon, along with a Mini Silver Ornament & the Green Sprigs!

These Acetate boxes can be found on page 13 in the Holiday Catalog.  The come 10 in a package for only $6.50, #144628.  They are truly a great little box that holds 3-4 cards & envelopes that you can fill & give as a gift to someone special on your Christmas list!

I'll be spending my day with the 3 little ones today!!  And tonight I'll be baking all night- getting ready for our Thanksgiving dinner.

I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!!
Happy Stamping!
