Day of Gratitude with Markers

Day of Gratitude, found on page 7 of the Holiday Mini, is a 
beautiful set.  It is easy to emboss (check out my upcoming post),
color with markers and yes, even cut out (I hate cutting, but this
set makes it tolerable).

In this example, I colored the large image and sentiment with Pumpkin Pie,
Wild Wasabi and Rose Red Markers.  Cut things up, layer the images
and you're good to go.

Falling Leaves with Owl

This is a CASE of a card by my good friend Mary Brown.
I used the Falling Leaves set and added the delightful Owl Punch.
This Owl punch from the main catty is so much fun!
He can be moody, or disguised as a penquin, pirate,
nurse, you name it!

The brown strip is from the NEW exclusive Big Shot
Tasteful Trim Die (page 17 of the Holiday Mini).
It has soooo many uses, whether you are cutting paper or cloth.

Dark and Dreary Web

This is the Dark and Dreary set from the Holiday Mini.
The Spider Web embossing folder is found in the Holiday mini
on page 6.  In order to add the "sparkle" to the web, I rubbed the
raised embossing with Versa Mark and sprinkled with Irridescent Ice
Embossing Powder.    It's really GOOD STUFF!

Stacked Candy Wrappers

Here's another Candy Wrapper (page 10 of the Holiday Mini) idea.

An Old Olive and a Perfect Plumb candy wrapper are stacked
and bound with the wide Old Olive Ribbon.

You can make your "stacks" as high as you want.  Rather than
wrapping them with ribbon, you can decorate each "layer"
with stamps for the occasion (Christmas, Halloween, Birthday).
