Welcome to the SUDSOL  Blog Tour!  This is my first one and I'm so excited you were able to stop by and visit my blog.  If you are a fellow Stampin'Up! Demonstrator, SUDSOL (Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing OnLine) is the place to be.  Sign up for a free trial and check out the wonderful advantages they have to offer, not to mention the great swaps, gatherings, patterns, ideas and much more.  You can check it out here.

My first project today features not only the new Label Card Thinlit Dies, but also the Halloween Hello stamp set and Witches' Brew DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  This is one of my workshop projects this month.  For the bats, I mixed a little of the Black Stampin' Glitter with some Black Embossing Powder to create sparkly bats!

Although it's hard to tell from the photo, these bats really shine and sparkle!  

Supplies used:  Halloween Hello Stamp set (131718), Witches' Brew DSP (132185), Label Card Thinlit Die (133479), Black & Orange Stampin' Glitter (132206), Black Embossing Powder (109133), 3/8" Basics Glimmer Brads (121003), Inks - Black StazOn and Versamark, Card Stock - Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla

My next project features our new Expressions Thinlits Dies.  I stamped the wheat image from the Truly Grateful stamp set with Crushed Curry ink on the Crushed Curry Card stock, then added the Early Espresso "thankful" on top.  The ribbon is our new 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon, cut in half and a little frayed. Recognize the DSP?  It's the beautiful Birch Paper Ribbon from the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit.  The leaves were die cut from Sweater Weather DSP using the Autumn Accents Bigz die.  A Naturals Designer Button, some Linen Thread and a Rhinestone Jewel finish off the card.

Supplies used:  Truly Grateful stamp set (131730), Expressions Thinlits Dies (132171), 1-11/4" Burlap Ribbon (132140), Sweater Weather DSP (132184), Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit (133463), Naturals Designer Buttons (127554), Autumn Accents Bigz Dies (127812), Linen Thread (104199), Card Stock - Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Inks: Crushed Curry

My last project today is a decorated holiday candle.  It features the Joyful Christmas and A Banner Christmas stamp sets.  I love poinsettias.  I remember my mother having those big half barrels filled with them growing up in Florida.  My candle was fairly narrow, so I stamped the flower twice and cut out the smaller inside flower image.  If you had a wider candle, I would suggest using the large flower and layering with the smaller flower on top.

Supplies used:  A Banner Christmas stamp set (130255), Joyful Christmas stamp set (131805), Season of Style DSP (132340), Gold Foil Sheets (132622), Pearl Basic Jewels (119247), Gold Embossing Powder (109129), Ink - VersaMark, Card Stock - Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Whisper White
