Ice Cream Cone Bday Card

This is a birthday card I just made for a friend. My new craft room is not ready and we had a major set back so I am afraid it will be awhile before I will have a room and all my supplies unpacked. This card I had seen on the Scor-Pal website:   Once you are on the home page you can click on the Projects word--that will take you to the Full Projects Listing Page and you click that. Scroll down to the cards section and you will see the instructions and pattern for the "Ice Cream Cups Card" which is what this one is. I used Melon Mambo ink from Stampin up for the words and that "Happy Birthday" stamp is from one of my Craig's List finds and the stamp is from Comotion Rubber Stamps from 1985.  I used the Dazzling Diamonds from SU to put around the edge of the 'ice cream' mound--that is paper by American Crafts. Ribbon is scraps. Used the Scor-Pal that I just unpacked to make the lines on the cone.

A Haunted Forest Halloween Card

This card is on Stampin Up Chocolate Chip paper. Used SU Very Vanilla for the cream piece and for the stamped piece. For the image I used the new Haunted Forest stamp from Stampin Up and since I am still not settled from my recent move I have limited supplies. Used a one inch circle punch and punched out a piece of scrap paper for the moon. Put that circle on top of the Very Vanilla paper and I used a cotton ball to chalk around the circle. Used a black and a dark gray for the chalking. Took the circle off the paper and using black ink from ColorBox I stamped the Halloween stamp over the chalked circle piece. Solid black paper and print paper are from Joanns. "Boo to You!" is stamped also with black ink onto paper from the Earth Elements pack of paper from Stampin Up. Used the SU Word Window Punch to punch that out.The "Boo to You!" stamp is by Northwood Rubber Stamps and I got that at a garage sale.

Just want to thank everyone that has left me kind comments about my cards and how I try to leave all the details for making the cards. This is the first time I have been published---FOUR of my cards are in this issue of "Just Cards!". I am published as Candee Porter. So thank you everyone here and on Splitcoast that have inspired me to share my love of card making. I just moved to North Carolina from New York and will be working on more cards as soon as I can take a break from unpacking... as if that is not enough DH wants to move the staircase and so it begins.... THANK YOU ALL!!  Candee P
