I finally finished my personal Christmas cards today. With all that is going on this time of year I needed something simple and easy. My inspiration for this card was from a dear friend and fabulous artist, Lesley Retherford. She sent a card like this to me 2 Christmases ago using Stampin’ Up! products. I wanted to post the original card also, but I’ve searched and searched my card storages and cannot find it. 😦 It is very easy to make. I used a piece of patterned cardstock and a coordinating tag from Merry Wishes by The Angel Company. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to 4 x 5-1/4 inches, wrapped ribbon around it to look like a bow on a gift package and added a designed tag. I adhered the layer to a Scarlet cardstock card base. You should really try this quick and easy card.

Fall is officially here!!! Yahoo!! I love it… the “not too warm” days and the cool nights. I always want to kick back and stamp this time of year. Ok, so I always want to kick back and stamp… any time of year, but I specially love to stamp and scrapbook it in the fall. I thought I’d kick off the new season with a new website design. I hope you like the new colors and layout. Leave a comment to let me know what you think.
I’ve been preparing projects for my Halloween/Fall stamp camp next week so I’ve been designing various Halloween treat containers. I love this one. It is a little metal tin from The Angel Company. I filled it with candy corn and wrapped it with ribbon. I used a pumpkin sticker from my local discount store to make the tag and a current GWP (Gift With Purchase) stamp from The Angel Company to make the “Halloween” tag. It was super easy. It took all of 10 minutes to make. The tin is 2-1/2 x 1 inches and holds about 2 handfuls of candy. Perfect treat for your little trick-o-treater… or big trick-o-treater. They come in a pack of 4 for $5.95… very reasonable. Click on my TAC website (www.kandy.ismyangel.net) and pick up a few. They would also be great to use for little Christmas gifts for teachers, class parties, co-workers… the list is endless.
Until next time, Keep Stamping!
