October Design Team Cards

This month, I chose to make cards with the super cute Stampavie stamps by Tina Wenke that Simply Scrapbooks just started to carry.I absolutely adore these little critters dressed in their Halloween outfits.Can you even believe that its almost half way through October? Still plenty of time to make and send all of the little monsters in your life a spooky card.
I also wanted to showcase that you dont have to use an entire stamp all of the time. Stamping the image and cutting away part of it to either pop dot for dimension or to use by itself is a great way to get more great looks from just one stamp.

Have a Spooktacular Day!

Sports Chicks Rule!

Denami stamps have the most adorable little chickies and their last release included sports ones. The 4 pack includes baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. My hubby volunteered me to make the thank you card that will be presented from the girls to their coach at the tournament this weekend.I used the school colors for the ribbons...I wish they had a stamp that said "Soccer chicks rule"...maybe I'll suggest that.
I received so many compliments during the Denami designs October blog hop on the ribbon technique that I used. It is sooo super easy! I decided to make (my first) quick video so you can make them too.

A special thanks to my 7 year old daughter for being my videographer...she did a great job!

Denami Designs October Blog Hop!

First, I would like to welcome everyone to my blog! Many of you have found me through I am very happy to be a part of Denami's blog hop and hope that you have a great time looking at everyone's wonderful ideas using their stamps.

Below you will see three of my cards. The first one uses the adorable little turkey . I can hardly believe that we are already talking about Thanksgiving!

I am a HUGE Steeler fan so football always reminds me of fall! I was so happy when Denami made the football chickie this year for my second card!

My third little card uses quite a few of my Denami favorites, the barn, the farmer chickie, the corn stalks, and the thought bubbe that I converted into a cloud.

I wanted to keep my post short and sweet. I know you have quite a journey to make on the hop. Stop by often, I am always posting new cards and ideas. Your next stop is
