Saturday's Cards

Here are four cards I did today. Actually only 3 I did today. This first one was done some time ago but it has been one of my favorites and only a one layer card that I thought I would share it. The look is done totally with chalk. I keep forgetting about our chalks and then I take this card out and tomorrow I will do some cards with chalk.
This is another like the one I did yesterday but with a different cat image and dsp paper.
I decided to dive and and try the treat cups on the cards. They are a lot easier to use than I thought. I just bought a big bag of M&M's and matched the colors to the season. I used the circle cutter to make the outline of the punched circle that the treat cup fits into. It made the ornament look a lot better.
This, of course, it the halloween one. I used the cut out of the stamped image and a rub on for this card.

The chalk card is beautiful - how did you make it. The other two are yummy - where does one get their hands on "treat cups". Cute idea.

After stamping, I used a sponge dauber dipped in versamark and then white chalk and applied to card. I just played around with it until I got the look I wanted. The treat cups will be in the Holiday Mini Catalog which comes out Sept. 1st. The stamp set also is in the catalog and has a ballon and heart to use with the treat cups. Our large circle punch fits the cups.
