Oh how I love coffee.  I am truly a Starbucks Coffee Junkie!  However, can't stop there every day, so the am Keurig does the job.  Today, however, might just be a Starbucks pumpkin spice coffee latte day!  Happy National Coffee Day Everyone!

For this Digital Page, I basically just added photos and some digital designer paper!  My Digital Studio by SU! did the rest!

I had some new shimmer paints from MS that I wanted to try out.  I punched the maple leaf and embossed it with my SU! BIG SHOT and also the background card stock.  I then swiped some of the shimmer paint onto the card stock highlighting most of the embossed images.  I think if you could see this card up close you would truly by oohing and ahhing.  The shimmer is so cool.

What's Up? Clear-Mount Stamp Set 134270
Price: $15.95
Hey girlfriend! You're keeping it real, so why shouldn't you have a clear mount set that does the same? With phrases as comfortable as a long chat with your best friend, you'll find lots of reasons to heart it. Set Quantity: 8.
The sentiment WHAT'S UP is from the SU! stamp set of the same name.  I stamped that in versamark and highlighted the edges of the die cut image with versamark and then added SU! pool party embossing powder and heated it.  So cool when you see it up close also.  The die cut is from the NEW SU! Project Life Framelits set called PROJECT LIFE CARDS AND LABELS.  This framelit is perfect for Project Life because it die cuts the pocket cards perfectly so they slip into your pocket pages, but cool because there are label images as well.

My Frightful Wreath Class

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I always decorate for it. So, I was extremely excited to hold this class.
We had Halloween music playing, candy to snack on, and this fun wreath to create! Everyone’s wreath turned out different. They were all so creative and beautiful when they were finished!
Here are some photos from my class. Enjoy! (Item # 135866)

The NEW SU! stamp set WONDROUS WREATH is awesome.  I love that this set coordinates with framelits and that SU! has made coordinating the wreath to the die so easily. There's a little tab on the stamp that coordinates with the framelit tab and there's almost no chance of getting it wrong.   There are 2 wreath stamps and then berries, words, a tie and a bow.  The 2 wreaths are great.  One stamps one color and then the other stamps right on top with a coordinating color and what an incredible look.  The framelits have some word dies so you are set for fall, winter or any season of joy!

BUY the framelits and stamp set together and save 15%.

I love the woodgrain background.  I stamped it in white craft ink on ALWAYS ARTICHOKE card stock.  I also added glitter and crystal effects to the card. Look closey at the two tones of leaves on the wreath - cajun craze and tangelo twist, great SU! combination and a great combo to welcome the Fall season.

What would Christmas be like without a wreath? Well, there's no need to wonder, because the Wondrous Wreath set has you covered, with two-step photopolymer stamps to add some dimension to your creation. Set quantity: 9.

Here's another card featuring the HOSTESS stamp set by SU! I LIKE YOU!  I think this set is great when you want to color in the images. I used SU! BLENDABILITIES.  Maria

Some of the stamps are non SU! but the card stock and the inks and the feature stamp from I LIKE YOU are all SU!

I think this stamp set by SU! is so adorable.  I purchased this set for a dear AUSSIE friend for her birthday.  I think I need my own.  I'm lucky another friend owns the stamp so I can stamp it when I see her.  Here I stamped the KOALA on whisper white SU! card stock and then colored her in with - YOU GUESSED IT!   SU! BLENDABILITIES alcohol based markers.  For an added touch I added a glimmer brad to the center of the flower.

I embossed the background SU! card stock and I also added some sequins from my stash.  Below is the envelope I made with some leftover designer paper and the SU! ENVELOPE MAKER.
The HUGS & KISSES sentiment is from the GOOD GREETINGS stamp set you can EARN FREE exclusively this month and next from SU!

I have been sending a lot of GET WELL WISHES this summer and SU! stamps and craft supplies are certainly serving me well to complete some great cards.  This particular card was stamped with MEMENTO BLACK INK (YES! this is my Favorite NEW BLACK INK!) and colored in with the SU! BLENDABILITIES markers.  I love how I can shade with these markers and easily get two or more blended tones. 
I was going through my stamp closets and found two stamp sets that I haven't used in a very long time, as well as butterflies from PAPILLON POTPOURRI. The older sets are NICE AND EASY NOTES and ALL ABOUT OCCASIONS (The flowers are from the second set, the cute adorable pill bottle from the first).
I added some sequins and embossed all of the colored card stock.  I inked up the envelope and sent the card on it's merry way to a dear friend who has not been feeling well for awhile now.
 The Tag on the back is adorable and actually matches an older SU! TAG punch.  That stamp is also from ALL ABOUT OCCASIONS by SU!
The colors on this card really make me happy, so I hope they will cheer my dear friend.

WOW! We really need to get going with our Halloween projects.  It will be here before you know it.  A neighbor around the corner from me has already decorated her home!  yikes!  I'm not that organized.  I usually don't decorate the outside until 2 weeks before, if I'm lucky...but this year - who knows?  I did receive MY PAPER PUMPKIN from SU! Friday and I'm thrilled with the contents of this kit!  I think my friend Linda K would LOVE this kit!  It's so cool and has the cool type bags I think she likes.  I do know my two Sandi (y)'s should be getting their kits soon too as well as all the other My Paper Pumpkin Subscribers. I'm going to have fun with this kit and the stamps alone are so worth the kit.

Here's what's in this month's kit! It's really packed with the goodies and there are always pieces left over for more projects.  I think I love the burlap bags, the sequined trim and the stamps the best, but look at all the other embellishments you get.
Look at just two of many projects you can make with this month's kit!
