I so love Mason Jars.....
I saw the candy corn jar on Pnterest  and knew I had another use for my Stampin Up "Jar of Love" stamp set and dies.  I love it when I can take a stamp set and use it all year round....

I used my Pan Pastels to shade the jar like a candy corn.  Then just die cut scraps of black glitter paper for the leaves and bats.   Allflowers were stamped in grey and black.
erfect adult Halloween card!

One of my favorite things about Autumn is "Apples"  I love to go apple picking.  In fact Hubby and I just came back from our annual trip to Edwards Apple Orchard.  After picking our favorites, "Honey Crip" and "Golden Delicious"  we left the orchard and headed to the barn and indulged on apple pie and icecream.

My trip today was the inspiration for ths card......Back to School Apple Core from The Stamping Boutique.    Image colored with Copics,  I made it into a shaker thanks to "The Fuse Tool"  sequins are from my ever growing sequin collection.  DP is from MFT, ribbon is from my stash.

My favorite thing about fall is the changing of the leaves.  
I've had this stamp set from Hero Arts for a while now,  and was motivated by my trees which are starting to turn....

 I am a crafter who is a hoarder of potential crafting items.  I hate to throw paper goods out.

Image is from Stamping Boutique, colored with Copics and Spectrum Noir glitter pens. I recycled the pink cardboard backgrounf from my embellishments package.  the doily is from a restaurant, and the buttin is from an old sweater.
Frame die is from Pretty Posh Pink
I'm not really infacial jewelry but I thought the star under her eye matched her top so well.......

WOW!  time is passing too quick,  I can't believe I haven't  had craft time in over a month. I really miss my de-stress time! Not to mention my to do pile is growing bigger and bigger.  

One of my favorite new stamp sets from Stampin Up, Teddy Bear.  I love the triple stamping,  you can make this bear look so real.  Next I want to try a black bear.

I used the We are Memory Keepers 3-D heart embossing folder, it really pops the background.  Other colors of DP are Dapper Denium by SU.
