Thanksgiving Treats!

Here are the treats I made for one of my red hat groups for our annual early Turkey Day Dinner at Bob Evans. I love the way they came out. Of course, I filled them with chocolate!

I used Gesso Canvas Primer on them first (that is the white area) and then used the baby wipe technique using the solid leaf image to get the varied colors and then I used Versamark and gold embossing powder with the leaf outline image.

Sr. Ctr. Cards

I am still going to the Sr. Ctr. once a month to make cards. Have had quite a few ladies attending the past few months as we got some new attendees and I am not having to do as much of the work for some as I have more now that can do their own cards for the most part. Here are some of their creations. (A friend that goes with me took the pictures and she is not use to my fancy camera, so she got her shadow in the pics - I was just glad to have some taken as I always forget).

Give Thanks Wreath and Halloween Cards & Treat Holders

Wow! I had not realized it had been so long since I posted last, so it is catch up time again! Sorry for neglecting my blog. However, I have been busy and I do have some creations to share.

On Oct. 15th, I had a Give Thanks Wreath Class and we made a wreath similar to the one on pg. 6 of the Holiday mini. I only had 2 attendees, but we had fun. One had to leave early, so she did not complete hers, but Tina did finish hers. Here it is:

I think it came out very nice. I started on a Halloween one myself and have all my lollies (SU! term for the circles), just have to put it together, but since Halloween is over, I am setting it aside for now to start on some new things. Gotta get ready for a craft fair I am doing for my red hat group in Dec.
Here are a few Halloween cards I did get made and actually sent out to family.

 These 2 are a case of ones done by my demo friend Catherine Ray, with slight changes.
I didn't have the black lace ribbon that SU! sold once, so I did the scallop. I also could not find my Shimmer Paint, so I used the Log Cabin Shimmer Spray. Loved the way it came out as it added little orange colored shimmer to the black. You can kinda' see it below.

I also made these cards, however the dragon is non-SU!, but I just had to borrow it from a friend and make it for my SIL as we both collect dragons. The hedgehog one is a retired Stampin' Up! set called "Hedgehog Halloween", had to make it for my niece as she loves hedgehogs.

The Happy Halloween on the hedgehog card is from a current stamp set called "Scaredy Cat".

Below are some treat holders I made for my red hat groups. The first ones are made using the Fancy Favors Die for the Big Shot. I love these, so easy to make. The DSP is Frightful Sight. The stamp sets I used are discontinued ones. However, I also did some using "Wicked Cool", but didn't get a picture of them.

These were made using the Scalloped Square Die and the packing paper from my Stampin' Up! orders. Great way to recycle. This was not my idea - I saw it on one of my online groups, but forget who originally did them as everyone started doing them as soon as she posted hers. I used both "Wicked Cool" and "Scaredy Cat" on these.
That is all of my Halloween and Fall creations for now.
