    Lucky you ,lucky us. Thanks for give away. You have so many inspirational ideas. Thanks . Happy Halloween!

  8. I love this card and love how simple but amazing it is. You are so talented!!!

  9. The Blackberry Bliss is such a beautiful color. I love how you used the stamp and leaves (over-lapping and masking) to create a swag effect. I can’t even see purple on the leaves. Watercolor has a soft look. Fabulous project, Tami.

    • Thanks so much Mary! Of course when I first colored the leaves purple, that’s all I noticed. But now I don’t see it at all. We always notice our own mistakes the brightest don’t we lol.

  10. Vikki Byington says

    Hi Tami! I have recently gotten a bit obsessed with card making. After caring for my precious for nearly 5 years, we lost her June 3rd. In my grief I could find nothing to interest me enough to hold my focus. Then I began YouTubing how to make Halloween cards. Loved it. Of course, I need a lot more materials so if my name is drawn I will be ever so grateful!! Happy Autumn!!

  11. Pat Topoleski says

    Love the beautiful card and with your terrific instructions I think even I could master it. Thank you so much. Love your videos.

  12. Karen Margotta says

    Hello Tami,
    I want to thank you for all the tips and tricks you share in your video’s. I truly enjoy your enthusiasm and love for stamping. I also appreciate all you are doing to stamp out breast cancer (I am a survivor) because together it is possible to bring about change. I typically never comment on blog posts but after watching your video, I could not help myself. This paper pumpkin set you water colored and the card samples you stepped up are too cute to resist! Thank you for doing all that you do for us stampers!

    • Thank you for taking a minute to write, and to share a little of your story. We do this fundraiser for you, and all of our loved ones fighting the fight. You’re right together we can make a difference! Rock on sistah.

  15. You are awesome and so talented Tami. Love your designs and tutorials. Thanks so much!

  16. Debbie Paulsen says

    I’m a subscriber to your posts and love your ideas, but this time its because of that “pink box” . Found out this past Friday my sister in law was diagnosed with breast cancer. So to get a chance to win has a special meaning.

    • Thanks for writing. I will pray for your SIL, I’m so sorry she has to go through this. I hope it helps to know so many are here to support and fight the fight with her.

  17. Heidi Halvorson says

    just found this…have been stamping for years, was a SU demonstrator for 10 years, keep thinking I should get back in.

  29. Chris R. from Iowa says

    Hi Tami – just a quick comment to say I loved the watercolored card and plan to CASE it for a co-worker. Your video showed how it seemed so simple and made such a wow statement! Also, congrats on all the breast cancer $$$-that was amazing! I already have this kit so if my comment is randomly picked, please play it forward to someone else so they can experience it! I love your blog and your videos are great.

    • That is so sweet of you Chris! Both your kind words, which mean so much AND your wanting to “pay it forward”. If you win, I’ll let you “pay it forward”. I hope your friend loves your card, I know she will, as much as I hope you love making it .
