Stampin' Llamas Fall-i-Days September Hop

Welcome to our Stampin' Llamas Fall-i-Days September Blog Hop!  My life has been so busy since our last hop visiting the newest granddaughter and my folks.  So many new toys and so little time to play.  I finally scrapbooked today with a friend and it had been over a month since the last time, and I am supposed to be retired, ha!

This Halloween card was made using the new Label Card Thinlit Die and it turned out too cute.  I used retired dsp and the sizzlet retired pumpkin also.  The Boo! is from retired Tiny Tags and punched out using the retired tag punch.  See the cute little Old Olive dot on the tag?  That is one of our new Candy Dots, just love them.

Technique class was last night and this card was made using the Clear Block Stamping Technique.  Just ink up one of our clear blocks and stamp, then stamp darker images over it.  The leaf images are from the Gently Falling set and the Pumpkin Pie Chevron was made using the new Chevron Border Punch from the Holiday Catalog.  The Thankful is actually cut using our new Expressions Thinlits Dies.  My husband thought I had died string brown and glued it down.

Once again I used the Expressions Thinlits Dies to make the Merry. This is the Sunburst Technique and I used our new dsp pack Winter Frost.

The snowflake on this spinner card was made using the Straw Blowing Technique.  In the center is a Frosted Finishes Embellishment and doesn't it really set it off?

One of my biggest challenges is making man cards.  Unfortunately, the camera did not pick up my colors well on this one, but the technique I used was the Magical Masking Tape Technique using the same colors that are in the Venetian Romance dsp.  Finished it off with the Chalk Talk Bundle (what a great buy)!
Well, that's all from me this time(PS: if you want to see the grands keep scrolling).  Go see what my other talented friends have made for us this time:

Well, this is eight month old Corinne, and I just spent five days with her.  Her mom text me today that she started crawling, two days after they went home, too late for me to see, but what a great time we had.

Addison had her first birthday on the 19th!  You are right, her right eye has a shiner she fell the night before her birthday party and had a black eye for the party.  She started walking on the 27th, just growing up too fast.
