Forget brains, I want candy...

Hello crafty friends! 

Are you ready for my Tuesday 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card? Last week I finally got my hands on the Magic Color Slider die set from Lawn Fawn and I couldn't wait to try my hand at something new. So I grabbed the super cute Trick or Treat stamp set from TGF and settled on the zombie boy for the magic little scene. I knew that I would need to use Staz On ink for stamping on the transparency layer but when I dug out my old ink pad I was bummed to find it completely dry! To say it had been a few years since I'd used it would be an understatement, LOL! Unfortunately I don't have a local craft store that I can run and pick up a new ink pad at so I had to make do with my Versafine onyx black but I had to let it sit overnight and set it with a heat gun before it wouldn't smear. Needless to say, Staz On ink will be at the top of my shopping list so that I have an easier time on the next magic color slider card that I make. Other than that little mishap I have to say that this die set made the whole process super quick and easy  Bonus points as it makes me look and feel craftier than I actually am too! ;) 

Now don't forget the monthly challenge over on the 7 Kids blog. There is plenty of time to get creative and enter in for a chance to win the $20 gift certificate!

Ghostly greetings...

Good morning!

I finally found time to play in the MFT sketch challenge and I'm so glad I did because I've been meaning to ink up these funny little ghost for weeks. The set is called Fab-BOO-lous Friends and everything about it just makes me happy. And talk about a super quick card to put together and color, I think when it was all said and done this was made in just under an hour. The Doodlebug papers are a perfect fit with those bright colors popping off the white background. The finished card is much different from the rest of the Halloween cards I've been making this year but who says all Halloween cards have to be dark and spooky?  ;)

Later gators!

You say witch...

TGIF my friends!

I'm wrapping up this week with my guest post for Whimsy Stamps and I've done another twist on a non-Halloween stamp. This beauty was just released last week and she is called Hot Chocolate Honey. I really can't wait to use her on a cozy Christmas card but until then I thought it would be fun to turn her into a witchy gal with a magical brew. So I wiped away the heart from the mug as well as the marshmallow before stamping her up then just colored her up in some perfectly witchy colors with an eerie glow. I even added a little spider to her cup for good measure. This potion paper from Carta Bella nailed the theme I was going for and I love how it kinda looks like we are peeking in on her in her secret apothecary.   :)

Thanks for dropping by and I hope your weekend is a crafty one!

When black cats prowl...

Olo!

I've got a quick post for a quick card to share today. This sweet digi from Mo's is called Three Little Kittens and since I am a crazy cat lady it totally tugs at my heart strings. The image seemed perfect for a Halloween card so all three of those cuties were getting colored up like my favorite black kitties. The paper is from an older Crate paper pad and I really dig the creamy, muted color scheme so of course I tried to use my Copics to match it as best I could. :)

Alrighty, I've gotta scoot my boot. Have a great day everybody!

You are bootiful...

Hey there!

It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for the October 'anything goes' challenge over on the 7 Kids challenge blog. Playing along is easy, all you have to do is use at least one product that can be found in the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and link back to the challenge blog in your own post, which gives you a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate at the end of the month... who doesn't love that?

This past summer I instantly fell in love with the Littles from Stamping Bella. Being a card maker with a passion for building scenes with my stamps these cuties were right up my alley. So when the Halloween and Autumn Little Bits were released I just had to add them to my collection. I love that with some simple masking the possibilities for creating fun scenes are as limitless as your imagination. My card today combines stamps from four different sets and they come together seamlessly to tell the story of ghostie and his witchie love. ;)
    

Ok now I hope to see some of my crafty friends joining the fun with me this month over at 7 Kids!

A bit of magic...

Hey there!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means... time for my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. I'm continuing on with the Halloween theme this month so I thought it would be fun to take a couple of the cuties from The Greeting Farm Little Party set and create a magical Halloween party. The way the one witchie-poo has her arms raised it looked to me like she could be working a spell so I stamped the plates and mini cakes flying through the air. Then I just added some sparkle with a few Copic Spica glitter pens and a sprinkling of sequins to really sell the mystical moment. The sentiment plays off the entire scene and since it is also a quote from one of my most favorite movies, Practical Magic, even better!  ;)

Alrighty, well the September challenge just wrapped up but be sure to check out the 7 Kids blog tomorrow when October's challenge kicks off! Fun new holiday stuff is hitting the store shelves and who wouldn't want that $20 gift certificate?!

Sit for a spell...

Good morning!

I wanted to make a card for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday challenge using "fall colors". I know I have plenty of KK Halloween cuties still waiting to make it on a card but when I started to flip through my binder of KK stamps it wasn't a Halloween image that caught my eye. Instead I saw this Purrr-fect Princess all cozied up with her kitty and I was inspired to make them work for a fun Halloween card. Everything was going well, I was nearly done coloring them in dark fall colors when my E89 decided to misbehave and bloop out a big splotch of ink on the right side of the chair back. I was so frustrated and thought for sure I would have to abandon my original plan and fussy cut her out instead. Then my sister had a genius idea that I turn the splotch into the mouth of a ghost creepin' up behind her. Now I can't imagine the scene without him, LOL! 

Alrighty, off to work I go... talk at'cha later!  :)

Happy Halloween...

TGIF my friends!

I'm wrapping up this week with a card for today's Free Form Bellarific Friday challenge. I inked up Tiny Townie Patricia Loves Pumpkins and totally borrowed the Copic color combo for those gorgeous white pumpkins, or spooks as we call them in my family, from the uber talented Alice Wertz. I love how this simple change from traditional orange pumpkins really alters the entire feel of this card with a pretty elegance. I also grabbed the Set of Pumpkins and Little Bits Haunted House Outdoor Decor set to complete this riff on the Little Miss Muffet nursery rhyme.

Alrighty folks, have a fab weekend!  :)

What's brewin'...

Olo!

I'm heading to the big city early this morning so this post will have to be kept short and sweet. This darling witch is called Befanina and she is from Impronte d'Autore. The movement in the image had me immediately envisioning her riding across a moonlit sky at top speed, heading to the Monster Mash party. By simply using a circle die cut around her I had the perfect moon to light the way. Then all I needed was a great starry sky paper to complete the scene for this CAS Halloween card.

Ok, I'm outta here for a fun day on the town... laters!  :)

Happy Meow-lloween...

Hello, hello!

I'm here today kicking off my second month as a guest designer for Whimsy Stamps. Because I'm currently all about Halloween cards I thought it would be fun to do a twist on this cute Tommy and Cleo stamp and make it work for the holiday. As sweet as Tommy is as a boy I figured that by simply coloring on a headband and adding a paper flower to it, Tommy could become a sweet baby witch getting to know her black cat familiar. I added a couple of pumpkins in for good measure to complete the cozy scene. Then I found this pretty floral paper and added some extra flowers to tie back to the one I added to her hair. Now I've got a pretty little Halloween card using an unexpected stamp, which I love. :)

Thanks for dropping by!

Hocus Pocus...

Hello! 

I'm here again with my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. For my card today I wanted to make one of the tiny Gorjuss Girls work on a Halloween card. I finally settled on Gorjuss No. 12 On Top of the World because with a bit of masking I could easily sit her on this large pumpkin from the Stamping Bella Haunted House Outdoor Decor set. Then with the help of a couple old Halloween stamps from my stash and an ink sponged sky I had a not-too-spooky scene for my card that I was quite happy with.   :)
 
Alrighty, there is still another week to play along in the September 'anything goes' challenge so head on over to the 7 Kids blog and join the fun! New holiday stamps and goodies are hitting the shelves every day and that $30 gift certificate prize could really help to fill a shopping cart!

Happy Halloween...

Good morning! 

I always look forward to the arrival of October and jumping into Halloween cards with both feet. So to kick things off this year I've made a fun and colorful card featuring the little trick or treater dressed up as a spider from the Roberto's Rascals Creepy Crawlies set. I paired her up with a cool spiderweb die and a couple crazy spider enamel dots from Doodlebug. Those spying eyes behind the web are also from the Doodlebug Booville collection. Put it all together and I've got a cute CAS Halloween card that is too sweet to be spooky.  ;)

You at my side...

TGIF!

Since this is the last day I will be posting before jumping into Halloween cards next week I knew I wanted to get this cutie on a card. These two walkin' buddies from Mo's Digital Pencil are called Corgi and Bess and I paired them up with the Happy Home set from Sunny Studio Stamps to set the scene. Now they are ready to take a stroll through the neighborhood together, enjoying a beautiful fall afternoon. I'm hoping to do a bit of the same thing today as it looks like we have a perfect fall weekend ahead of us. Hopefully it's just as nice in your neck of the woods. :)

Have a great one my friends!

Birthday Wishes...

Hello, hello!

There was no way that I could ink up Oak Tree Boy yesterday and not get this adorable Oak Tree Girl on a card of her own. So I've got a bonus Whimsy post this week along with the satisfied feeling of completing the set, LOL! I didn't feel like I needed to reinvent the wheel with this one so I kept the wood grain frame idea and die cut acorn embellishments. The birthday theme stayed as well since I still had that sentiment set out on my desk. Another simply sweet card ready to make someone's day.  :)

Later gators!

Happy Birthday...

Mornin' friends!

This week for my Whimsy post I inked up a sweet older Sylvia Zet image called Oak Tree Boy. These darling little characters tug at my heartstrings and make for super cute cards. I wanted this one to be for a fall birthday so I pulled out a fun sentiment and made it happen. To keep with the nature/fall season vibe I found this scrap of wood grain paper in my stash and used it to frame the scene. Then I just finished the card off with a little bow and some die cut acorns. The end result is simple and sweet... just how I like my cards.  :)

See ya manana!

You're pretty...

Hi there!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means... time for my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. In my last order from 7 Kids I got some of the fun new viking stamps from CC Designs along with some Neat and Tangled goodies. At the time I hadn't planned on pairing up the two but as I was putting the stamps away I really looked at this You're Pretty sentiment set and realized how perfect it would be with this fabulous Viking Nancy character. I love how together they take a rather superficial compliment and turn it into an empowering message.  :)

Alrighty, there is still a couple weeks to play along in the September 'anything goes' challenge so head on over to the 7 Kids blog and play along for the chance to win a $30 gift certificate!

Crisp sunburnt leaves...

Good morning! 

With fall officially upon us I just had to print off this gorgeous Spirit of Autumn digi from Some Odd Girl and get her on a card. At first I couldn't decide what color her hair should be so I challenged myself to create a fall ombre effect from brown all the way down to golden yellow at the ends. I'm pretty happy with the final results, at least it mimics the changing leaves on the train of her gown quite nicely. When it came time to color a quick background I made sure to make the tall grass sway in the same direction as her wind blown tresses to really sell that illusion of a crisp, autumn breeze. I found the sentiment in an older 6x6 paper pad from Simple Stories and it couldn't have been more perfect. All in all I had a lot of fun coloring this one up. :)

Ok then, hope your week is off to a great start!

Warm wishes just for you...

TGIF! 

I'm wrapping up this week with a quick little card featuring the long retired Twinkle Tot Madelynn from TGF. I was kinda hoping that some of her fellow Twinkle Tots would be in the Farmer's Market yesterday but no luck. I'll just have to keep hoping and waiting a bit longer to complete my collection. In the meantime I have been waiting for the cooler fall season to get Madelynn on a card. She's so stylish with her long, fabulous scarf and pretty floral cap. In fact it was that flower that had me pulling this lovely floral paper to pair with her and pull all my Copic colors from. Total bonus that it gave me a built in sentiment for the card as well. :)

Have a crafty weekend everybody!

Hello fall...

Olo!

The weather has definitely taken a turn for the cooler side with the nights getting down right chilly here. I'm not complaining though because I finally got to pull out all my comfy sweaters and snuggle up. I guess that's why this cutie caught my eye, with her oversized sweater and layers I could just feel the nip in the air. She's called Hello Autumn and I mean come on, how adorable is she? The birch trees made another appearance too because I thought that lone leaf needed somewhere to fall from. It makes for a sweet, simple scene that I am quite happy with. :)

Laters!

Milk and cookies...

Mornin' crafty friends!


I'm here today with another card for Whimsy Stamps and I had a lot of fun with this one. This darling stamp is called Sweet Lil' Chef but she looks like a baker to me. Who can resist delicious chocolate chip cookies? Heck, I would take that bowl of cookie dough right now, LOL! I had just gotten the new Milk and Cookies 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug and even though it is technically a Christmas collection I knew right away that I wanted to use this specific paper with Sweet Lil' Chef on a non-holiday card. So I pulled my Copic colors from the paper and I think she turned out just as sweet as those cookies she's baking. :)

Ok, time for me to get my day started. Thanks for dropping by!

Autumn Greetings...

Hello crafty friends! 

It's time for my Tuesday 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card. I placed an order as soon as the new release from Stamping Bella hit the shelves and once those stamps were in my hot little hands I just had to ink some of them up. Tiny Townie Layla Loves Leaves completely stole my heart with all of her joy and exuberance and she needed somewhere special to live. So I masked her off and added the leaf pile and log from the awesome Little Bits Nature Collection set and finished off the scene with the Cave Kids Backdrop. I chose not to ink up the stream in the backdrop since I already had so much else going on and I love how such a simple change completely changes up the look of the stamp. I colored the whole scene to match the colors in this pretty Vintage Blessings paper from Simple Stories and I don't think you could ask for a more beautiful fall day than this.  :)   

Now don't forget the monthly challenge over on the 7 Kids blog, there is still plenty of time to get creative. And because it is the special one year anniversary challenge the prize has been upped to an awesome $30 gift certificate!
