My mom, sister, niece & daughter were able to come with me this year. We rented a beautiful suite at the Milan Inn (see link on side bar) so we had a wonderful Girl's Night out.
This year some of the crafter's were asked to contribute to the door prizes. We were asked to make cards for the 6 baskets that would be given away. The theme this year was The Sparrow so many of us used birds in our cards. Below are the 3 that I submitted.
Sorry the last one is burry. I think Santa needs to bring me a new camera. The circle says Peace.

Any how, we worked on techniques. She's a new stamper, but is very good. The card with just the evergreens on it we were trying to duplicate a technique that we saw on a card at Archivers last christmas. No one could tell us how they did it because the card came from the company. So we played until it came close. We stamped first. Then we outlined some of the tree parts with the Versa Mark pen. Embossed that in black. Then we stippled the sky with blues. Stippled the trees with green. Then we topped it off with some glitter. We thought it was successful. Though all the ones we did were just practices. I can't wait to see her final work!!!
We also worked on some miscellaneous cards she needed. Enjoy the pics:
It's hard to see but we did run the pink card through the Big Shot and embossed it with hands & feet. I love embossing!!!

Becka's school's homecoming was October 11th. She was asked to go by Chris B. As you can see on her face she had a great time. She asked Dave to take Black and White pictures. Chris' family took colors, so if I get one I'll post one.
My first fall card. I used my new Big Shot from Stampin' Up! If you don't have an embossing/die cut machine, I encourage you to splurge on this item.
I embossed the background in leaves. I then took a paper towel and dipped it in the ink that I pressed onto the lid of the ink pad and I gently colored parts of the leaves. I did this with a few fall colors and this is what I got. If you only press gently you won't get pass the embossed part so the background stayed white. If you notice the brown strip is embossed as well. I die cut the pumpkin and his face with the Big Shot. I'm not thrilled with the card, but I just wanted to play and get use to my Big Shot.
If you're interested in learning abou the Big Shot you can call me and I can show you how it works! (PS there is a spot on my camera lens that is driving me batty. I can't seem to get it off. Any suggestions?!)
