Eerie Hallo Bride

I colored up this image over the weekend while I was at my Moms house playing. She was perfect for todays sketch so I paired her with some Eerie dp and made a CAS card (for me!). I didnt use any nesties and didnt mat any of the dp. I added the spider and put some halloween pearls on him. I LOVE this image and HAD to have it!! I wanted to have a Halloween wedding and my Mom thought I was insane but I thought it would have been cute!! I mean the decorating would have been SO easy and fun. I love decorating for Halloween and Halloween cards are my fave to make! Anywho I was going to be dressed like Frankensteins bride and of course hubby would have been Frankenstein!LOL!

Stamps: Hallo bride-The Greeting Farm
Paper: eerie dp, Coredinations purple cs
Ink: copics
Accessories: MS spider punch, recollections halloween pearls

Marvin the Bat

ETA: Marvin the Bat is available at The Stamping Bazaar.
Im batty for Marvin!LOL!! Isnt he just the cutest!?! I had SO much fun coloring him up and even got to use my SU vintage violet cs. I LOVE Halloween b/c its the only time of year I can use it. I also used some Pebbles inc dp from 2 yrs ago I think. I started using this weeks Saturday sketch but my image was too big so I had to go another direction. (How many posts do I say that in?!LOL!) I know the goop or whatever that punch is called is supposed to going down but I wanted to use it and the only way I could make it work was for it to be going up.
Okay thats it for me today! Sorry such a quick post! Have a good one!

Spooktacular Hallo Witch

Todays featured stamper is Kristen! I had alot of fun browsing her gallery and found this Spooktacular card to case. I kept the colors and used the new Hallo witch image from The Greeting Farm. I also changed the layout to this weeks Saturday sketch from Club Anya. The witch was so fun to color up and of course she is colored with copics! I used some recollections dp from last year that I got at Michaels. I also added some ribbon I won from Jacksonbelle embellishments. I used the EK Success bat border punch and SU scallop border punch. I cut the witch out the nestie and had a little boo boo so I used some bat punches to cover it!LOL! Have a good one!

Stamps: Hallo witch digi image-TGF
Paper: recollections dp, rich razzleberry, pti white
Ink: SU going gray for sponging
Accessories: sponge dauber, bat punch, bat border punch, ribbon from Jacksonbelle embellishments, SU scallop border punch, dimensionals

All stitched up

It feels like its been forever since I made a Kenny K card. Our challenge today is stitching it can be machine, hand, or faux stitching. Since I dont have a sewing machine I added faux stitching...alot of it!LOL! I had a friend of mine come up to me last week and ask me to make a card for her daughter. She wanted LOTS of white, polka dots, flowers, and a sassy rock image. Okay so most of that I can handle. Kenny K's rock chick image is the first thing that popped into my head but...LOTS of white?! Uh HELLOOOO do you not KNOW ME?!!LOL!! I just got this polka dots ef and loved how it matched the size of the polka dots in the MME Quite Contrary dp. Of course I colored Rock chick with copics (listed below) and added some sparkle and shine using sakura clear glaze for her lips, shoes, and earrings, and I went over the guitar strings with the silver pen. Be sure and check out the challenge blog for the rest of the dts cards that will have you in stitches!LOL! Sorry I had to do it!LOL!

Under Wraps

I know Im killin yall with all these CC designs images this week!LOL!! Have I said before how much I ADORE these super cute images?!LOL!! After I made my witch Emma card I had to show Trevor some love too! I knew I wanted to give this weeks Sketch Saturday a try so I used Mummy Trevor from last years Halloween release. I paired Trevor with some MME spiders web dp and embossed the dot and black panels with the spider web ef. I also used a quickutz button punched out in the dot design and popped it up with dimensionals. I really love this dp for a masculine Halloween card so I didnt want to add any girly elements to it. I used some twill ribbon sponged with antique linen to "dirty" it up some and also sponged the edges of the dp and main image. I also used my cutter kit to distress the edges of the dp. Well thats it for me today! Hope you have a great one!

Emma is colored using copics and I added some black rhinestones but kept off any other embellishments since the card was so busy from the dp!LOL!

Meet Spindle Mossyrock

She is a new fairy from the wonderful Amy who creates the fun Sweet November stamps. The digi dt are playing with these fun stamps this month over at ATS. I paired Spindle with some MME so savy dp. I thought the colors in it were perfect for her! I love that there are fallish colors in the dp. I colored Spindle with copics and cut her out with the curved rectangle nesties and sponged some antique linen around her while it was still in the die. I also used one of the labels dies for the purple flowered dp panels and I covered most of it up with the large image but there is also a scalloped panel under the image. No bows on this card just a strip of the wide so saffron ribbon and a couple of quickutz flowers cut from the dp. I had to use these flowers b/c they reminded me of the flowers in the purple dp. This layout was a little different for me but it was one of those cards that just took on a life of its own!LOL! Check out the other fabulous dt samples here. Spindle and a couple of her friends will be released on Monday Sept 13.

Paper: MME So savy, pti white, sage shadow
Accessories: quickutz flower, gold brads, labels nesties, curved rectangle nesties, SU so saffron wide grosgrain ribbon, PTI large scalloped border die, dimensionals

Bloom and Grow Pippi

I dont know about yall but Im so ready for fall. We had some nice cooler temps this past weekend and it was so nice. I keep thinking if I make fall cards it will hurry it along!LOL!
Whatever the season or event I always pull out those stamps and have them in reach so they get used. So this weekend I pulled out all my fall and halloween stamps to start using them and I had to use one of my faves from last year. This swiss pixie image is sooo cute to me!! I paired her with some MME bloom and grow dp which isnt exactly fall dp but I just love the colors in it which to me are somewhat fall colors. I actually had Pippi colored first and just tried to match her up with some of my dp. I also actually got a chance to play along with the Mojo sketch which I havent been able to do in awhile. This was a fun layout and I cant tell you how long its been since I used my SU tag punches!LOL! I stamped the swirl from Baroque motifs onto the Kraft card with soft sky and stamped the happy hello sentiment over it. I did forget to write down the colors on this one but if you need to know just leave me a comment and I will see if I can figure out what colors I used. Have a great day!

Lady Raven

This weeks Kenny K challenge is to use pearls and swirls. I used Lady Raven and paired her with BG Junebug dp. I used a sketch challenge from somewhere but cant remeber who now since I made this last week and forgot to write it down. Of course Lady Raven is colored with copics and I added some sakura clear glaze to her lips and tattoos. The dp is sponged with antique linen and ran through the swirls ef. I had all my layers all ready put together minus the main image and realized I had no swirls on my card so I just ran it through and actually like it better!LOL! Check out the other pearls and swirls creations here. Have a great day!
