Curt's Best Shots Slideshow

THE WEDNESDAY EVENING POST

Hey All!  It's time for another Wednesday Evening Post!!!  Boy I'm tellin' ya, this one is HUGE!  LOL  I'm so excited about this post.  Remember last post I told you that this one was going to be a special one????  Well, here's why. . .This is my 100th post!!!!  Wow, that amazes me.  And I'm going to celebrate that and the fact that I now have over 100 followers too!  This is just too much fun!  So now that you know why this was a special post, let's get on with it.  I have a ton to share and some BLOG CANDY to give away!!!

OK, to start, October is a huge month of Birthdays for me.  My sister's is the 1st, Jay's is the 2nd,  my best friend's is the 4th, my Mom's is the 10th, and my aunt's is the 17th.  I'm not going to show you all the birthday cards I made, but I will show you the ones that I made for my Mom (because I told her I would LOL).  Here is the first:



I wanted to make her something elegant, so I used that mirror finish matte board that I got at HL for the matting behind the sentiment piece.  I gold embossed the leaves around the sentiment piece and also did an extra one and cut it out to also put on the sentiment piece.  Here is the inside:



She really loved it.  I also made her a funny card as well.  I hadn't used this image in awhile, and I thought it was perfect for the sentiment I wanted to use.  I have seen this sentiment several places on the web, and it makes me laugh every time I read it.  Here is the card:



Isn't he cute?  I honestly forget how makes this set.  I got it before I knew I was supposed to keep this kind of stuff for posts.  All I remember is one of the character's name is Bert.  I colored him with my ccp/oms, and sponged the background sky.  I also stamped the cat tails on a separate panel and use FlowerSoft on the cat tail part.  Here is the inside:



Makes me laugh every time.  The dragonflies were made with a punch.

Now, her "Granddogs" had to give her cards as well.  Here are theirs:



This image is from "Gunther's Greetings" which was the stamp set inspired by my sweet Gunther.  It was done by Jami Bova.  I stamped the paw prints on the card stock and the image was colored with my ccp/oms.  Here is Shotsy's card for her:



This is an "altered" Inkadinkado" stamp so that I could make it look like Shotsy.  I Fun Flocked him in black and added the screw brad to look like a picture hanging on the wall.

OK, on to the projects. . .As you guys know, I'm a freak for Fall and for Halloween.  I found these really cool copper colored metal frames at JoAnn Fabrics for $1.  So I bought several because I had the following in mind:



I always loved this wooden stamp set by Martha Stewart.  It has the four leaves you see in the pic above.  I stamped them in Versamark ink and then embossed them with copper ep.  I colored them with Staz-On pumpkin, olive green, and mustard inks.  I then cut them out and mounted them on various papers then dropped them into the frames.  I love to have lots of Fall decorations around the house, and these are perfect for setting on a bookcase or small shelves.  They really add a charm where ever you put them.  Here is a close up of one of them:



I also was so excited this week because I received the stamp set that I ordered from Stampin Up for Halloween.  They are the sweetest images and I bought it specifically for one of the images.  I plan on using the one image for the Halloween dog treats for the neighborhood dogs.  I thought that these frames would also work with this stamp set.  Take a look:



Aren't they cute?  I LOVE these frames!  I've got to go get some more!  The skeleton up there is the one I'm using for the neighborhood dogs.  What a riot that image is and so perfect for dogs!  LOL  Here is a close up of the sweet little pumpkins:



These were so easy to color (ccp/oms) and so quick to put together.  I've got them sitting in one of our bookcases in the living room.  OK, enough of the frames. . .on to the next project!

I loved this Stampin' Up set so much that I decided to make one of my famous (snicker) Spam Can Note Card Set.  Here are all the pics:














Are they not the sweetest images?!?  I love how the cards turned out.  Love my Spam cans!!!

Can you believe it. . . . .I have MORE!  LOL  I'm so tired I can't stand it. . . .LOL

Remember last post I said that I had a fabulous cookie recipe to share?  Well here are some of the pics of my cookies:





Do these not look yummy???  OMG they are so good.  A lot of you probably already know about these, but I sure didn't, and when I tasted them, WOW I had to make them.  Here is the Halloween project that I am using them for:



I packaged them in a regular sandwich bag with a decorated strip of card stock and another Stampin' Up Halloween image from last year called Tableau of Terror.  Another one of my cherished Halloween images.  I again colored it with my ccp/oms and stamped the background with Colorbox inks to make it look like a ghostly moon is behind them.  I cut it out with my Nesties and then attached it to the strip.  The strip is folded over the bag and then stapled to hold the bag in place.  Here is a close up of the colored image so you can see the detail of this great stamp:



OK, here is the recipe for the cookies:

Devil's Food Sandwich Cookies

2 boxes of Devil's Food Cake Mix
4 eggs
1 cup of vegetable oil

Mix the above together until a firm dough forms.  Roll dough into small balls (I used a teaspoon to measure).  Drop onto greased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes.  Let cool before applying icing.

Icing

3-4 cups of powdered sugar (I used 3 cups and it made plenty)
1 package of cream cheese
1 stick of butter
3 tsp. of Vanilla

This recipe made about 42 sandwich cookies.  They are just melt in your mouth good.  I kept mine in an air tight container in the refrigerator.  They stay soft and chewy if you do that.  Also, if they come out a little over done don't worry.  Once you have them iced and refrigerated, they soften up and become chewy.

OK, now for the end of this post. . .(some of you are now saying "Thank God"!  LOL)  On to the Blog Candy!!!   Yeah!!!!  Here is what is up for grabs:



What do you think?  Worth leaving a comment????  That's all you have to do.  Just leave a comment on this post and I will draw a winner next Tuesday (October 20th) after 6:00 PM (Eastern Time) and will post the winner's name on next Wednesday's post.  I'll use Random.Org to pick the winner.  Whoever comes up #1 will be the winner.  Here is what is in the prize package:

3 different sizes of scalloped circle punches by The Paper Studio
2 rolls of Halloween ribbon
1 package of letter stickers by Tag Type
1 package of glitter butterflies rub ons
1 package of Creative Keepsakes silk flowers
1 package of Making Memories Page Pebbles
1 Snag'em Stamp Flip Flops
1 package of 3 mini albums
1 package of Colorbok magnetic frames
1 box of K & Company 24 long cards in Fall Colors
1 box of K & Company 24 long cards in Pastels

OK, there you go.  I'm done!  I haven't even had my dinner yet!

Thanks so much for your support over these last 100 posts!  You guys have made my days more than you will ever know.  I hope you've enjoyed this post, long as it might be.  I just have so much to share and love doing it.   Don't forget the pic of the week below!  I'll be seeing you all on your blogs in the next few days!  Good luck to all of you on the draw next week!

Best,

Curt O'Brien

How did you find time to bake and gather blog candy with all that stamping you did?!?!?

Gunther's card is adorable. The frames with the MS leaves look so elegant. Beautiful job. I knew right away which SU image you meant. That skeleton and dog crack me up. It will be so cute for Halloween for the neighorhood doggies.

Thanks for another fab post and the chance to win your candy. Perhaps you could add one of those yummy cookies to it!

Two of you would make quite the gift shop artists!! We'd all have to stop in weekly to check out the latest personalized caring gift selections. Good clean fun!

Wow! Congrats Curt and thanks for sharing all your creations! You've been very busy and they are all adorable. Love the funny birthday cards for your mom...the frog one is hilarious...I think the stamp is from Anthony and Burt and here's a link to a store that has some (but not the one you used, I think)http://www.littlecs.net/anthonyburt.html

Thanks for the opportunity to win all the goodies! :)

Sue said...

Love the cards for your Mom, and from the Granddogs too!! And aww, your Mom posted a comment, so sweet!
Cookies look yummy, will have to try them, love the packaging you did with them too.

berg4 said...

Wow - what an impresive post. Great cards! I love the paw prints, and the funny card for your mom. All the Halloween cards are fabulous. Those cookies look so good - I cannot wait to try the recipe. The converted spam can is perfect. You are right the frames and perfect. Wonderful work.
Thanks for the candy opportunity

STAMPING SAM said...

Well, I made it through this 'long' post and saw some awesome cards on the way! Your card making style is really great and gave me some great ideas, especially the doggy cards! I too have a gran-puppy so I know how your mom feels. TFS. Sally

Bonnie Weiss said...

Congrats on your 100TH, Curt!! I'm not sure what I enjoy more ... your creativity or your warped sense of humor ... either way, it just keeps me wanting to come back for more!

So, as for the cookies...no point in my attempting to make them. There would not be enough icing left to fill the cookies, after I was done 'sampling' the icing!

Looking forward to your next 100 posts!

~B~

PS: Hugs to The Boys

Juls~ said...
