Show Me The Stamps: October Style

 Welcome to this month's blog hop!! Today, Tami Mayberry and I will be showing off some of our latest creations with sets which we designed for Gina K. Designs. 

This monthly hop, which will be the second Tuesday of each month, will feature not only some of our newest stamp sets available through Gina K Designs, but also occasional prizes, sneak peeks and other surprise you won't want to miss so be sure and mark your calendars!

These six projects are sure to get you thinking outside the box when you are crafting. Our personal design teams will also be showing some of their creations as well...so grab a cuppa and get comfy!

This is my first creation...I call it my facebook cuppa joe! I combined Becky's coffee cup, Tami's thumbs up (which reminds me of the facebook "like" icon) and my sentiment from Wicked!  
I used copics to color the coffee cup and create the steam!

Here is a cute & simple gift for this time of year. I recycled an olive jar and added some yummy candy corn to the jar. I covered it with designer paper, some ribbon, ric rack, and a small tag with the owl and the "boo!" sentiment from Wicked!

I attached the tag with some bakers twine. 
 Here is a clean & simple card with the Wicked set! I also used the Wicked Web silhouette file. The smiley spider and a combined sentiment (Wicked & Boo) along with a button and some bakers twine complete this card.

 The nugget project (yes, I finally got my supply replenished), features some copic colored avery address labels. Simply swipe your copics on the label. You don't need to go right to the edge, since you will be wrapping the label around the back of the nugget. I used the images from Wicked with black ink after I colored with the copics.

...simply peel the label and add them to the chocolate nuggets...
 ...put the wrapped nuggets in a clear plastic bag and tie on a tag...makes a great teacher's gift for this time of year!
 Here is another fall card which I made this past weekend (on World Cardmaking Day!). Some designer paper and my favorite image from the set - Mr. Monster!  Such a simple layout using some scraps and buttons...

Finally, the Truth Is....coffee pocket card

 >>>TRUTH IS..... I love coffee<<<<

Wouldn't this be cute with a Starbucks gift card inside!

 I made the coffee sleeve with kraft paper & colored the mug in with copics!

So that is my Show Me The Stamps Hop for this month!
