Coffin duck Birds of a Feather www.stampingwithdi.com

...coffins! Such cute little 3-D treats to hand out at Halloween...or how about a 50th birthday party...ha! That would be cute too eh? As you can see the poor little duck is a pirate and has lost his eye...no worries, it is right there on the tag...ha! Those googly eyes are so fun!

This one uses the Monster Bash DSP so they all looked a bit different depending on what spooky face was added. I also added one of the new Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to the tag.  Don't even get me started on that Glittered Organdy Ribbon, it is like a silver galaxy shining on there. Love it, and it ties like a dream! I cut the shape out of one of the bases so I had a pattern in order to line the coffin...so cute.

Toile Tidings Cardinal

Toile Tidings Cardinal www.stampingwithdi

I wanted to share another card from my Country INKers Fall Social. Everyone got the Toile Christmas stamp set for coming, it is so beautiful.

We stamped the branch on the Pool Party cardstock and then just added the bird on top with dimensionals.  We colored around the edges of the bird to make the Whisper White cardstock look Pool Party, it blends in a bit better to the cardstock in the back.

OMG! I am watching an old episode of Laverne & Shirley and they are dressed as guys...Shirley looks like Sqwiggy, the greasy hair and all...ha! These old ones are good. It is fun to see old movie stars on here when they were younger too.

What are some of your favorite older shows?

A Little Snow on the Branches

Fall Social 2019 Red Cardinal Feels Like Frost www.stampingwithdi.com

I just can't get over how beautiful this stamp set is and pairing it with the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP is even better. Oh and yes that is snow on the branches! I love the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.

This is one of the cards we did at my Country INKers Fall Social.  I received a swap card by Margaret Van Vliet that had this layout and I just had to use it. Adding the cardinal added a pop of red. Thanks Margaret!

Fall Social 2019 - Table Goodies

Country INKers Fall social 2019 Studio www.stampingwithdi.com

Now that my 2 weekends of Country INKers Fall Social are over I can start sharing stuff. I have shown you a couple cards but I kept the room under wraps.

Above you can see the room set up. Fun with the red buffalo plaid, it is my go-to every Fall.

Here you can see what met them when they got here. Their cute little swag bag (a fun purse organizer that holds their new stamp sets and supplies). Four cute table goodies.

Country INKersFall social 2019 table goodies test tubes www.stampingwithdi.com

I had grabbed a bunch of these test tubes when they were on a Paper Pumpkin refill. I found a cute box pattern made by my sweet friend Dawn Griffith and I just had to adapt it to fit these tubes, and voila'! Adorable! Thanks Dawn!

I loved these little easel frames I found at a local craft store and just had to get them. I had to order more online as they did not have enough in the store.  I showed me making these daisies the other day...yeah lots of punching, but oh so cute right? The saying is just clipped on there so they can remove that and put a picture if they want.

Last year I had gone to my friend Earleen's house and made something like this and we put candies in the bottom and I could not wait till this year to do it for Fall Social. I found the little trees and reindeer and put them away till now. The snow is hot glued on the lid of the jar. I had wanted to use a glue that dried white underneath but did not find any, they turned out super cute anyway. I added some of our cute Holiday catalog ribbon and added the jingle bells to the container. So cute!

I told the girls they could add some of their swag bag bling later at home if they wanted.

Country INKers Fall social 2019 table goodies mercury glass mini curvy keepsakes box www.stampingwithdi.com

I don't know what was my favorite little table goodie, but these are super cute and so impressive.  Just think how cute these would be at each person's place at Christmas or to leave on a friends desk at work. These definitely took the less time...well unless you count the time it took to get in more of the ribbon...I thought I had ordered enough...well I did I just could not see it sitting right in front of me....ha!  These use the new Mercury Glass Acetate and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die. In fact I am doing a Pop-Up Class Series in November and you will get this bundle when you come...let me know if you are interested.

Country INKers Fall social 2019 table goodies group www.stampingwithdi.com

Here is everything sitting out waiting for their new homes, I forgot to take a picture before I had boxed up all the Virtual packages. But it was fun  making all these. I sure was able to binge a lot of old tv shows that I did not really have to pay attention to...ha! I really think Laverne & Shirley went on one season too long....

Let me know if you are interested in coming to my Country INKers Spring Social March 21 and March 28.  Make sure you sign up for my emails.
