Happy National Coffee Day! Did you know coffee was discovered by a goat herder in Ethiopia? It is said that he discovered coffee after noticing that his goats upon eating berries from a certain tree, became so spirited that they did not want to sleep at night.
So in honor of this day I designed a fun Halloween card using our new Merry Cafe stamp set.
I inked up a white doily and the watercolor swooshes are from Beautiful You. You can find these and all the other supplies in my shop by clicking on the images below
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a very crafty weekend!
Today’s card is brought to you by the Timeless Texture and Best Birds stamp set.
Using a background stamp is a great way to get a unique look for your handmade cards. Here I used Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie ink pads to get this background for today’s card.
I then added some pumpkins from the Spooky Nights Designer Series Paper (DSP) and layered them on a Very Vanilla circle and a scalloped Pumpkin Pie circle with a few strips from the DSP . To finish it off I added the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Spooky Cat stamp set.
If you would like to create a similar card I have listed the links to all the supplies I used to make this card below. Just click on the image and it will take you to my store.
I know fall doesn’t officially start until Sept 21 but here in Texas it sure feels like fall. This past week we have been waking up to cool crisp mornings and our afternoons have been sunny and mild. It has inspired me to get all my fall decorations out of the attic and filled our home with fall leaves and pumpkins. Even Merlin loves this time of year!
New Spooky Cat Stamp Set
And speaking of fall have you seen the new holiday catalog? You will love the new beautiful fall stamp sets this year. And the new Spooky Cat stamp set and coordinating paper are a real treat for all your Halloween cards and party decorating needs. Here are some Halloween cards I have been creating for my upcoming card class with the new Spooky Cat stamp set. Links to the supplies I used are listed below.
I’ve also been making some grab bags for the Crossroads Church craft fair I’ll be at later this month. If you live in the North Texas area be sure to come by and say “hi”. I’d love to meet you.

It’s time to order your holiday stamps and start creating all those holiday projects you’ve been planning! Today, September 1 kicks off the Holiday Catalog for all customers! I am sure you have seen lots of samples and hope you are ready to place your order!
Remember that some of the “hot items” could sell out fast so if you want those foil snowflakes or cat punch make sure to place your order early in the month! All Holiday Catalog items are while supplies last 😉
If you would like me to mail you a copy of the catalog, send me an email requesting a Holiday catalog and or the annual catalog along with your mailing address and I will be happy to send you one.
