BOOOOoooooo

October 24


This is my design team card for Try Stampin' (or not) on Tuesday.  The sketch is below and the theme is HALLOWEEN.

I started with a Halloween pad from Recollections choosing the embossed bats on red and the purple potion.  The moon was also pulled from the pad.
I cut the bat background to fit on the black top fold cs base.  I then followed the sketch to add the purple square.  The ribbon is left over from last Halloween as well as the piece of pick from a wreath I made.    The letters were cut from black cs using my cricut and the Lyrical Letters cartridge.  So much fun and very festive.


Here is the sketch for the week





I hope you have fun playing along as well.

Kittah in Autumn

October 17




           This is my design team card for Try Stampin (or not) on Tuesday.  The sketch for this week is below an the theme is LEAVES.
             I have to admit, I just had to use that stripe of kitty heads.  I just didn't have the heart to toss it and I  knew it wouldn't last in my stash anywhere.
             So, I started with two shades of brown card stock for the base and background.
           For the leaves, I blended Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and Brushed Corduroy on yellow and orange cs.  I cut them out using Spell Binders dies 'Foliage".  I then inked the edges with walnut stain.
          The cute little kitty was stamped with Simon Says stamp and die set.  I colored the kitty by brushing in distressed inks.
        The stripe of kitty heads that I so love is from an American Craft pad.

Monster Hugs


Stinkin Inkers October

Hello everyone.  This is my design team card for Stinkn' Inkers.   The theme this month is Monsters.

For this card, I started with a piece of white cs and I blended Blue Print Sketch, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Black Soot across the card.  I then used water drops to remove some of the ink.  I then went over it again with the same colors and a Kaiser Craft stencil, speckles. I also flicked white paint on the top black edge.
Using Lawn Fawn monster stamp set.  I stamped the goblins on purple designer paper and used a white gel pen to fill in the eye.  I used white embossing powder to stamp the square bats and heat set those.  Then, I used the corresponding dies to cut them out.
Using the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder on black CS.
With two shades of brown cs, I cut the spooky tree with my cricut and the Simply Scarecrow cartridge and then inked the edges with Walnut Stain ink.
I adhered everything on to a top fold black cs base lifting all the monsters on dimensional squares.

I hope you have fun playing along.

The sketch for this week is below and the theme is
  'bold words'
I started with yellow and orange card stock to build the base.
The designer paper is from American Crafts.  I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the lacy edge.

Get Well


   September 12


This is my design team card for Try Stampin (or not) on Tuesday.  
The sketch is below and the them is Fall Fun.

I started with white cs that I smooshed Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint.  I cut that in strips the width of the cars and attached them with spacing between.
I took the rest of the smooshed paper and cut a bunch of small leaves with a punch.
I ran the dotted white with a gel pen and then stamped the sentiment with a Hampton Arts stamp and gold embossing powder.
I then mounted all those little leaves with dimensional squares to lift them up like they're floating.

I hope you have fun playing along.

Dance.

 September


  This is my September card for the design team at
  Stinkin' Inkers.  
The theme this month is 'YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBINATION'
and BLUE
is my signature color.
I love how all the distressed ink blues blend together with the transition into green.  I used a bunch: Salty Water, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.  This was all blended on white card stock using a Darice folder.

The sentiment was stamped using an Inkadinkado Stamp and blue glitter embossing powder on a pale green vellum.

A couple of teal and green sequins for the flower centers and all adhered to a top fold black cs base.



I hope you play along.  I can't wait to see your favorite colors!

Have a great day
