Halloween Shaker cards!

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today at Sparkles Monthly and this time we want to see your Shaker Cards!

As mentioned in a previous post... I'm back with my last two cards featuring the fabulous 'Boo Crew' Halloween kit from Simple Stories! Again, I used several papers, stickers, tags and chipboard pieces. I used a SSS stamp die for the stitched rectangle and to create the shaker I used MFT Peek-a-Boo die and a rectangle shaker pouch.   
Here's a close up so you can see the shaker/tag portion a little better :) Inside the shaker pouch I used black, orange & star sequins and added twine to the tags. 
I hope you can join us and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog for
more inspiration.

I have a very busy week ahead and my computer time will be limited, so I will catch up with you all soon :) Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween Bats!

Good morning everyone! 

It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is Halloween!

 I love making Halloween cards so I have a couple of cards to share and they feature my new Bat Crazy dies from Tim Holtz :) 
The backgrounds were created with Carved Pumpkin & Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks and I used a circle to mask off the moon. On the first card I added a crackle effect to the moon and on the second card I let the DOI ink drip into the moon to give it a spooky feel. Both cards were splattered with black & white Posca pens and I used a MFT die for the skyline. The die cut cat and Halloween label tape are from Tim Holtz.

 Now head on over to the main challenge blog and check out the awesome creations by the other team members!

Thanks so much for stopping by... I'll see you soon :)

Another Card Kit! :)

Good morning everyone!

I'm at it again... playing with my newest paper collection! :) This time it's the 'Boo Crew' Halloween kit from Simple Stories!
This kit was so fun to work with and it included: papers, stickers, tags, chipboard pieces and so much more. I used a number of stitched dies to cut everything out and on the two cards above I added some googly eyes.
I made several cards out of this collection to add to my donation box so I'll be back later this month with a few more cards :) Then, I promise that's it from this kit- well, this year anyway! LOL! I still have so much paper left over! 

Enjoy your week and thanks so much for stopping by!

Autumn is in the Air...

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is... 
Autumn Blessings and this time I decided to make an art journal page :)
I created a watercolor wash/splatter background with Distress Oxide inks and a misc. leaf stamp. I cut three ovals for the pumpkin, colored them with ink and then stamped a few flourishes. I used a burlap folder to emboss the ground portion, a Lawn Fawn die for the leaves and a MFT die for swirls- all were colored with Oxide inks. I cut the 'Autumn' word out with a Echo Park die, stamped some extra sentiments and to finish it up I added a orange twine bow and that's about it!

Autumn Owl...

Good morning everyone... I'm back with another owl card- two days in a row! :) 

Today starts a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly and the theme is...
Autumn Colors... I love working with autumn/fall colors!
To start: I created a watercolor wash background with Lindy's Magicals- I used colors from the Prairie Wildflowers & Caribbean Cruise sets. The leaves were cut with QuicKutz dies and colored with the same colors of Magicals. The adorable owl was cut with a Cheery Lynn Designs die and I used a Tim Holtz die for the letters. 

Well, that's it for now.... thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog for more inspiration.

Going Around in Circles...

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today over at Try it on Tuesday and the theme is...
Going Around in Circles!
My card features a cute owl image from Vera Lane Studio, it's colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. The background was created by using a smooshing technique with acetate, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn & Twisted Citron DOI. I used TCW Mini Circle stencil for the dark green circles, I mixed Twisted Citron ink & modeling paste together and applied it through MFT Confetti stencil for the larger circles and the circle loops were cut with a SSS die.
 
Now head on over to the main challenge blog and check out the beautiful creations by the other team members!

Thanks so much for stopping by... I'll see you tomorrow! :)

Fall Chipboard Cards...

Good morning everyone! 

I wanted to pop in real quick today and show you some of the Autumn/Fall cards I've been working on... 
They feature some really cute chipboard accents/stickers from Echo Park. The sentiments and most of the papers are also from Echo Park. I used a Pink & Main die for the stitched rounded rectangles, MFT dies for the fishtail flags & circles and all of the edges were distressed. 
These were so fun and easy to put together and I know I've said this before... when making several cards at a time for donation- I LOVE using coordinating papers, images & embellishments! 

Well, that's it for now- Thanks so much for stopping by!

Book Page Flowers...

Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today over at Try it on Tuesday and this time we want you to use Book Pages on your projects. I made a couple of cards featuring Lawn Fawn's Stitched Flower Frame die. 
The backgrounds were created with acrylic paint, bubble wrap, distress ink and Stampendous Grunge Script stamp set. My book pages are from a used paperback book that I bought from a thrift store for a $1.00... what a deal! I glued the pages down with matte gel medium to a piece of heavy cardstock, once dry I cut the flowers out and then distress the edges with ink. 
I used a Penny Black die for the stitched rectangle, a Tim Holtz stamp for the sentiment and for a little extra sparkle I added Stickles Moon Dust Glitter Gel to the flower above- it's so sparkly IRL! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful creations! 
Take care... Tammy x
