Witch Wanda

Good morning everyone!

I'm back with another VERY bright Halloween card and it features the adorable 'Witch Wanda' stamp from Impression Obsession... isn't she a cutie?!!
It's stamped onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper in VersaFine black ink and colored with a combination of Zig and MozArt Brush pens. I used an Avery Elle die for the large stitched rectangle, MFT dies for the pierced fishtail flag & stitched circle and TH dies for the double stitched rectangle, tiny bats and sentiment. The papers are from Doodlebug design and to finish it up I added Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Ahhhhh... AUTUMN!

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today over at Cardz 4 Galz and the theme is...
Thoughts of Fall!
My card features some gorgeous papers from Graphic 45- the 'Children's Hour' collection. I love the main image, it looks like a watercolor panting! I used Lawn Fawn dies to cut the stitched leaves and MFT dies for the circles and tiny fishtail flags. All of the edges were distressed and to finish it up- I removed the center of an old decorative brad and added a small piece of DP and then placed it near the leaves.

Bugaboo Halloween Cards

Good morning everyone!

I've been working on Halloween cards to give to my local Ronald McDonald House so I thought I would pop in and share a few :)
They feature adorable images from Bugaboo Stamps and are colored with Copics. All of the papers are from Doodlebug Design, the stamped sentiments are from Taylored Expressions and I used a QuicKutz die for the 'BOO' die cut below. I used Avery Elle dies for the stitched rectangles, a TH die for the tiny bats and a MS punch for the larger bats. The stitched circles, fishtail flag and corners were cut with MFT dies. 
And there you have it... a few not-so-scary Halloween cards!

Just Chillin'

Good afternoon everyone!

I wanted to pop in today and share a quick and easy summer card with you and no stamping was involved! 
The flamingo image is from a piece of 12x12 cardstock by Recollections and the floral background paper is from Echo Park and IRL they match perfectly but not so much in this photo. Anyway, I used a Sizzix die for the dotted rectangle, a Tim Holtz die for the double stitched rectangles and the flowers were created with my new Stitched Blooms dies from MFT. Oh my gosh I love these dies, I just received them in the mail Tuesday and had to make something right away! :) This flower die set includes 17 pieces so I can't wait to play with them again!

Well that's all for now, thanks so much for stopping by!
