Anything but a Card

 

Hello,  I know Halloween has passed, but I knew what I created last month for my Stampin Up ladies would work perfectly for this week’s challenge at Just Us Girls. I made 25 of these to hand out after club where I was the hostess.  I found this idea over on Pinterest.

Here are a few details:  The hair was made with MFT-grass, I used punches for all my circles, a little ink distressing, corner rounding and ribbon and I was done.

Come check out all the amazing projects this week at JUGS!

Trick or Treat

Hope you had a great weekend!  Here is my final Halloween Card for this Halloween Season.

 I colored this image a while ago and stumbled upon it the other day and took some time this afternoon to finish her off.

 I will be entering her into the Color Challenge over at the ColourQ and also at The Friday Mashup where they asked us to make a project with a witch.

The paper is mostly CM with a little GKD.

Stamped images I got from a friend.

Colored her with Prisma Colored pencils.

Added some buttons for detail along with some pop dots!

Have a great start to your work week and thanks for stopping in,

Happy Halloween…

Halloween is close at hand and the kids at school are getting excited, so as the saying goes….” If you can’t beat ’em you might as well join ’em!

This week the Dynamic Duos have chosen Orange and Black as there 2 color choices along with using a Diecut as an added Dessert!

 I combined that challenge with a great sketch over at Freshly Made and this is what I came up with!

I got to use my new Spellbinders that I got yesterday!!!  It’s called Picot Edge and I have been wanted some kind of Circle Diecut for quite sometime now!  So thrilled!

The paper is a mixture of  SU,CM, along with Stamp TV Cardstock.  I also used the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder for some added texture!

Thanks so much for the visit!

Have a great week!

Haunted Hop

WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER BLOG HOP!

“Haunted Hop”

Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in our September blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating HALLOWEEN this month! Halloween was always such a fun holiday growing up! I remember the excitement building and then the fun school Halloween parties to the furious finale….trick or treating!  Join us on our haunting hop!  Each host/hostess will have a card creation posted that is his/her representation of what HALLOWEEN means to them.

Here is my Card for this HOP!

It’s a type of Tri-fold card just like my last Halloween card from a few days ago!

Love the close up of the pumpkin!

I took my little letter stamps and stamped them on cardstock in a up and down pattern…

then took a ruler and a black pen and added the outline to define the sign so I could cut it out. Hope that makes sense!

Some details:  The cardstock and DP is mostly Creative Memories, the Happy Halloween I made with some letter stamps I have had for a long time.

Used my Scallop Nestabilities from GKD… add some MS punch leaves and some twine and some black ink for added effects and there you have it!

Halloween Time

Yes, If you can believe it…Halloween is not that far away and as you surf the internet, pinterest or Facebook you are starting to see witches, ghosts and bats popping up all over the place.

Also,  I am on board with some friends over at Stamp TV and we have a Halloween Blog Hop coming up this Friday the 21st, so I thought this weekend I would get my creative juices flowing in that direction.

 Which leads me to the card I have for you today!

 I took three different shots of this card so that you may have a better idea of how it opens. It’s a type of Tri fold, and if you have any questions just shoot me a message!

 I myself don’t have a lot of Halloween stamps so I asked around at work (what teacher doesn’t have Halloween stamps lying around.) and this is what I came up with.

I used some of my Prisma colored pencils, a black marker for added details, and some neon gems to finish it off.

 I am entering this in the color challenge over at Dynamic Duos to use Lucky Limeade and Basic Black. Why not jump on board and join us at the DD!!

Hope you have a great week,
