Jack-o-Laterns are the best! When my kids were little, pumpkin carving was a huge part of Halloween.
This card was pretty easy. I stamped the pumpkins four times with Pumpkin Pie on Basic White cardstock. I added the faces to three, and the sentiment on one. I only needed one stem since they are stacked on top of each other.
The background was first colored with Balmy Blue and a Blending Brush. I then stamped the leaves on the bottom with Garden Green. I then embossed the whole thing with the Raindrops embossing folder.
Added the pumpkins with Dimensionals, done!

New PDF! Pick of the Patch! 4 cards- all have different sentiments. One is for Halloween, the others for thank you, blessings, etc. You can see it here!
The All About Autumn suite is so dang pretty. One of the best papers I’ve ever seen! This card took me about 10 minutes.

Scraps of All About Autumn DSP (for the leaf)
Step by Step:
Die cut the leaf with the DSP paper.
Die cut the midrib (the middle part of the leaf) with Pecan Pie cardstock. Glue to the leaf.
Glue the 5/8″ DSP on the bottom right of the background DSP.
Stamp the “with a grateful heart” on the DSP background paper with Versamark. Emboss with gold embossing powder. Heat.
Stamp the “to have you as a friend” on Very Vanilla with Copper Clay ink. Die cut with one of the Autumn Leaves dies. Glue below the grateful heart sentiment.
Add the leaf to the card with Dimensionals.
Add the Speckled Dots.
OK, when I first got this suite out to make stuff with it, I struggled a little. I just couldn’t come up with ideas. Then! I came up with tons! I have a few I’ll share with you, but I also have 4 that I will not share anywhere and have a PDF Tutorial for them! You can see it HERE
More skeletons! I’m kinda obsessed with those suckers! I had this idea when I was at my desk. I was holding the skeleton (from the DSP) and was looking at my cards I have displayed. I saw the bike card I did a few months ago and I thought that would be dang cute!

When I first started stamping with the Tricks & Treats stamps (the monsters) and die cutting them, I was getting so frustrated how they came out every time. So, I figured a way to do it better (for me). My video shows this technique and how to make this card! It also shows the cards you will make if you buy the PDF Tutorial!
Like I told you when I made the candy corn card, I got the Tricks & Treats bundle and had a hard time figuring out what to do with it. And then I made 8 cards! This one is one of my favorites. Pretty easy.
I stamped Frankenstein monster twice with Pumpkin Pie and Memento ink. Die cut.
I stamped the vampire twice with Smoky Slate and Memento ink. Die cut.
I stamped the Pick of the Patch sentiment with Memento and die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies. I added Pumpkin Pie ink on top with a Blending Brush.
I die cut 4 squares from the Stylish Shapes dies with the Them Bones DSP.
My Basic White cardstock is embossed with the Cane Weave embossing folder.
Add the four squares to the embossed paper. I like to put the Tombow glue on them, let them dry a bit so they are moveable before completely set to the cardstock. That way you can make sure they’re perfect!
Glue to the sentiment in the middle of all 4 squares.
I added wobbles/craft springs to each monster and added them to the squares. Make sure there’s enough space in the center so that you’ll be able to read the sentiment.

Now, don’t forget I have a PDF Tutorial using the Tricks and Treats. 4 cards, some of which are my favorites! You can see that PDF here
The O Holy Night suite is one of the prettiest suites I’ve ever seen. I have made so many cards and other projects with it. The paper, the stamps and the dies are so easy to use to make a beautiful card. The suite comes with two stamps, two die sets, two packs of paper, embellishments and ribbon. Some is backordered right now, but it should be back in stock soon.
So, here’s the first one I’m sharing! I put this together in about 10 minutes.
I die cut the camels (Night Divine) three times with Crumb Cake.
I die cut one star (Stars at Night) using Gold Foil paper.
Using the DSP, I fussy cut the sand hills. Here’s what the paper looks like full:
I glued everything to another DSP.
I stamped the sentiment (Night Divine) with Boho Blue ink of Boho Blue cardstock. Die cut with one of the Stars at Night dies.
Tied a bow with the Night of Navy & Gold Glittered Ribbon. Done!
