Halloween Greetings

 I needed one last quick Halloween card and I love a good Clean and Simple card that packs a punch. This card was super quick with just the right images.

I started with stamping the CANDY CORN BORDER - 606D and the DECO HAPPY HALLOWEEN - 707E then I colored up the candy corn.

Once I was done I thought oh this needs more. Well of course add a couple of EMPTY SPIDER WEB - 329G in the corners and then I just had to add the 4 IN 1 HALLOWEEN SILHOUETTES - 1152D,  I just drew in the line from the sentiment to the spider.

Halloween Greetings



FS769 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper Jocelyn aka JoBear2. Her gallery will amaze you. I am blown away at how much talent she has to share. I found this cute WT309 Make a wish!! by JoBear2 at Splitcoaststampers

I used a similar layout however I did not add any embossing to my base layer.

This amazing image was a RAK sent to me by my good friend Polly (peeps321) to help with my pet card donations. Thank you Polly. I colored it up with copics then added a few punched stars and finished with the thanks sentiment.

Wishing You


I love looking for ways to stretch my stamps. This New Home Greeting - 967G - DRS Designs is a great sentiment but if you look at it different you can use it for a baby card.

I die cut this baby outfit and added some fun colors using dome distress oxides giving it a groovy vibe. I then added a hand drawn smile. The card was finished with the New Home Greeting - 967G - DRS Designs.

Wishing You

I used a similar layout but added a bit more interest with adding a 2nd DP paper to the bottom. The dog images are all DP from a paper pack and are great for cranking out some quick cards. These are more for my donations.

Pink Flowers


MMTPT691 - Scissors & Pink

This image was sent to me in a Teapot Tuesday exchange a very long time ago and I thought it was perfect to color up and use today.

I colored the image then cut it down for the card. On the right side I did an out of the box cutting on the butterfly using my scissors to cut around the butterfly then straight edge on top and bottom. I trimmed the image with a light pink to pick up the pink in the flowers.

Happy Halloween


I just had to use this Silhouette Witch Cauldron - 716K again. She is so perfect for a fun midnight scene.

For the card I masked the moon with a circle stencil then sponged 3 different blue oxide inks starting with the lightest around the moon and added a hint of black at the bottom.

Once the scene was colored I stamped Silhouette Witch Cauldron - 716K and the Batty Happy Halloween - 548G in black.

Happy Halloween

I loved that large diamond but don't have a large diamond. So I created a shaker card and used Glitter behind my image.

Stamped the image on acetate with stazon then cut it down and created the shaker. I kept the rest of the card clean and simple to let the sentiment and shaker be the card.
