This card was made by using the new Friendship Jars from PTI. When we first saw them we didn't  think we would  get a lot of use out of them. Yet this past month, they introduced the fall fillers (halloween and autumn) and we simply could not resist. Having had the set for only a week, I can honestly say that we LOVE it. The jar is just so cute. 

For this card, I cut and stamped the jar image on a piece of Kraft PTI cardstock. The new dies from PTI make it very easy to cut out the jar image. I then punched a bunch of white circles using a SU punch. The eyeball comes from the fall filler addition to the Friendship Jar PTI set. I then die-cut the jar label and stamped the matching sentiment! Don't you just love the eyeballs for Halloween?? The jar is sitting on a piece of the new Halloween paper from PTI. I added a small strip of black cardstock to the bottom and attached a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set from SU. Hope you enjoy!

I don't normally enter my cards into online challenges, but I thought it would be fun to start. This card works well for Ted's Halloween challenge. If any one is interested, you should really check out his great blog

Falling for you!

Hello everyone!

I thought I would share some cards made using our newest stamps from PTI. We got a bunch of Halloween sets as well as a fun fall/autumn set. 

I have to say that I absolutely love the fall. Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays so I really enjoy making these cards for OWH. Its hard to believe that the deadline for Halloween is so close. 

This first card was made from a set called Falling Leaves. The set comes with a tree and various leaves. It also has an adorable acorn and a small apple. I used different shades of red, yellow and orange ink to stamp the leaves. I then added the brown acorns. The entire image was cut out and backed with an orange/red piece of cardstock. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom with a matching acorn. It is a very clean and simple card. Hope you enjoy!
