This months challenge is so much fun!  Who doesn't love Tic Tac Toe and then when you combine it with super fun techniques...You have a really awesome challenge.
For my card I went with Stenciling, Die cutting and embossing.  I used the Spooky stamp set and a Brand New Scallop Tag die!  The sentiment is heat embossed.  I just love how the spiders are used in the word spooky.
So head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog and Play along with us!!

September 29

Have you ever been Boo'd?  I have and I love to participate in spreading a little Halloween cheer.  I have a adorable card to share with you today that is perfect to include with your goodies that you leave with someone you choose to BOO.
I used three new die sets from Top Dog Dies for this fun card, the Ghost Die Set, Pocket Page Halloween Die Set and the Wicked Witch Die Set.
The poem was stamped and heat embossed on the spider pattern paper that was die cut using the Halloween pocket page die set.  Those cute ghosts were cut from vellum, I just love googley eyes and they are perfect on these cute ghosts!  Last but not least the spider is from the Wicked Witch die set.
Here is closer look...
Do you have any fun Halloween traditions or have you ever Boo'd anyone?  I would love to hear about them.

September 20

It is almost fall!!  Fall is my favorite season, it is the start of the holiday season and much cooler temperatures.  So have you thought about your Thanksgiving Table yet?  I have.
  I know its a little early but I think you just have to plan a few things in advance, right?!  With work and three kids I try to get as many things done in advance as possible. 
This adorable little name tag is going to be on every place setting at my holiday table.
I used the new Top Dog Dies Make a banner set and Fall Foliage set to create this name tag.   So let me teach you how.
Gather all of your supplies
 I cut a piece of cardstock to 5 inches in length and scored it down the middle at 2 1/2.  Fold your cardstock and then we are going to die cut that banner.

Now the trick to making this a name tag is to place your die just above the fold line we created so you end up with one piece just like a card.
Next we are going to cut of the tabs on the end of each banner.
All you have to do now is decorate your name tag as you choose.  I used the banner layer cut with gold foil and the leaf from Fall Foliage and heat embossed my daughters name on vellum.
Here is a look from the side
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy Tuesday!  I have a super sweet card to share with you today using the Unicorn Die set from Top Dog Dies.
I just love this unicorn die and what a better use for glitter than a magical unicorn, right?!  I cut the hair with adhesive sheets and glittered one side and adhered it with the other side.  The horn was cut from adhesive sheet also but instead of glitter I used gold foil.  The sentiment is also foiled.  Here is a closer look at the adorable unicorn.
I also added some shimmer using the wink of stella glitter pen.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Fall is almost here and I am so happy about that I can't wait for cooler weather!  Have you seen the Top Dog Dies New Release yet?!  I made this adorable fall banner using some of the new dies.
I just love those Pumpkin dies and they fit perfectly with the Make a Banner die set.  I also used the Vintage Alphabet.
Go check out the new release and if you make a banner using some of these new dies leave me a link to your project in the comments, I would love to see what you create!

Top Dog Dies Aug. 25

I have some fun dessert themed cards for you today! 
First up is the card using the Make A Cake Die set.  I cut the cake base and then embossed it just to give it a little texture.  Those candles are so fun, I added some wink of stella glitter pen and glossy accents to the flames.
The next card uses the Cupcake Die set and the Borders #1 Die set.
I used the border die along both sides of the card panel.  The stamp is from an older PTI set and that saying just makes me smile.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
