Happy Fall Y'all

Two Paper Divas just released some new stamps that you are going to LOVE!!!  I feel extremely honored to be one of their designers.  I'm having a blast sharing my creations with you!  I used the new Wheelbarrow stamp along with one of my favorite sets, Fall is in the Air.  I wanted to incorporate the fall season into my card, so I decided to put pumpkins and gourds into the wheelbarrow.  Using some autumn patterned papers and a doily die cut, I popped the wheelbarrow so it would really stand out.
I then added some scalloped paper to the bottom of the card, a cute burlap bow with green stitching and an orange button.  

I just love decorating for fall.  My hubby and I just got our house all decked out.  Check it out!  Too fun!

I just couldn't stop with the card this week, so here's a little treat bag I made using another new stamp from Two Paper Divas.  It's called Autumn Block.  Who wouldn't like to get some goodies in this bag?  Maybe some of my white chocolate krispy cookies?
I started with a paper doily that I distressed to get rid of the bright white color.  I then added some rich colored fall patterned papers and some rust colored twine.  And finally, the new Autumn Block stamp.  I really love all the words and it fits for the entire fall season.  I colored the outside border of this stamp in a brown color and also colored the little pumpkin, leaf and acorn.  I also thought this stamp would be perfect for place cards at Thanksgiving.  Maybe I'll have to whip some up and share with you soon! :)

Thanks for taking a minute to check out Kirby's Kards!  I really appreciate it!

Make it a great day!

Yeah, it's officially Fall!  Time to be thinking of Halloween costume ideas!  We usually dress up our dogs for all the spooks to see that come around trick-or-treating!  They don't always like what I pick out for them, but they sure look cute!  I wanted to share a Halloween card I made using stamps from Two Paper Divas.  I started with a cute black polka dot die for the background on cream cardstock.  I then added an orange and black mini polka dot patterned paper and topped it with one of the Halloween Bingo Cards from Two Paper Divas.  There's several bingo card sayings to pick from and you just purchase them online and then print whatever you would like.  You can use them over and over and over!  I decided to color the word "Spooky" in orange to pop it.  I just love the Happy Halloween stamp set as there's so many fun stamps to pick from.  So, I used the moon, bat, "Happy Haunting" saying and the witch's hat.  Some orange ribbon, cream twine, a black star and a couple festive buttons and this card is just the thing for that special spook!

Lovin' this Cooler Weather

My husband and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and planted some mums Sunday afternoon.  Now, I just have to get out my fall decorations.  I just love all the rich colors!  Can't wait to get some hay bales, corn stalks, pumpkins and gourds to make our house a little more festive!  In keeping with the fall theme, I'm sharing a tag I made this week.  
I started with a tag I cut out of kraft paper.  I stamped three different leaves from the set "Fall is in the Air" by Two Paper Divas.  I then distressed the tag and added some cream colored burlap with a frame I cut from kraft paper as well.  I just love this stamp set from Two Paper Divas.  There's a ton of options with this set.  I decided to cut apart the saying for a little different look.  
I absolutely love these pumpkins!  You can cut them on the vertical lines and pop them for a layered look.  (Thanks Mel and Rene for sharing that with all of us gals!)  I then added some pearls, pom pom ribbon, greenery and some ribbon to the top.

Thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by Kirby's Kards!  I really appreciate it!  And, if you haven't started following Two Paper Divas you really should! :)

Make it a great day!

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Hello Everyone!  I wanted to share a Halloween card that I made this week using stamps from Two Paper Divas.  They just released a bunch of new stamp sets that you are going to LOVE!!!  I started with one of my favorites, the Mason Jar stamp, and used one of their cute lids from Mason Jar Accessories #3.  Then I used the spider's web and the itsy bitsy spider that I stamped to look like he is hanging from the web.  From the same Happy Halloween stamp set, I used the bat and the BOO saying on a piece of notebook paper that I die cut.  
Since I love polka dots, I used some orange and white polka dot paper and a piece of black paper with little cats to make it festive.  A couple Halloween colored buttons, some black and white twine around the jar, black ribbon, black pom poms along the bottom of the card and I'm finishing it off with the Happy Haunting saying. 
 Thanks for taking a couple minutes to check out my Halloween card!  I hope it inspires you to create something spooky!

Make it a great day!

Pure Sweetness

Gumballs, Sprees, Jawbreakers...what is your favorite candy?  Wait until you see the latest stamp set released by Two Paper Divas!  They have created an adorable jar with multiple treats to go inside it.  Make sure you check out their new website and all of their new stamp sets.  Simply amazing!!!  I decided to use the round candies for this card.  So cute! 
 I started with a couple patterned papers in greens and a reddish color.  I colored the candies some shades of pinks, reds and greens and added a little glitter to each one for some sweetness and dimension.  I decided to color the jar lid a green color and used glossy accents for the jar top as well as adding some red twine and a pearl.  I like using the Happy Birthday stamp from TPD's Everyday Sentiments that has some confetti around it, since this card was just fun!  A couple pearls at the bottom and this card is ready for that special someone's birthday!
Wait until you see the back of my card...Two Paper Divas just released a stamp set that allows you to put your name on your creation.  I love all the phrases as I like to sign my name to each project I create, making it more personal.  The possibilities are endless with this set...you can add your special touch to whatever you create!
I hope this card has reminded you of all those yummy, sweet treats that we all grew up with!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards.

Make it a great day!
