Pumpkin Spice–You are my favorite

Oh my gosh!  I’m late!  This has been a bit of a crazy week and I lost track of the days.   I hope you don’t mind if I keep the post short and to the point.


Once again I was playing around with some fun papers and chipboard from Pumpkin Spice.  I so love making cards like this now.  With a few extra added accents you have a fabulous card that is pretty fast to make.

These beautiful papers and chipboard pieces are from the For the Record 2 – Documented collection from Echo Park.  I just love these colors.   For my card, I layered a couple of chipboard pieces to give it a bit of extra dimension.   To add a little something extra, I used liquid pearls to accent the center of the flower.


Check out the 6x6 paper pads and coordinating chipboard and embellishments at Pumpkin Spice for great prices and fabulous customer service.


Thank you for stopping by!

Sorry I've missed so much beauty on your blog lately!!!!!! This is a great CAS card! I know it doesn't look TOO CAS but for your regular cardmaking - it's awesome! Love the addition of the pearls!

Loved the doggy in the dog house card too from a few days ago and you made me laugh during your 'glitter' post when once you got to blogging - you didn't have much to say! LOL

I know the feeling!

I'll be back around normally in a few weeks!!!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
