Best Witches


Today I have a Halloween card to share with you. I made this for the color challenge at splitcoast today, which was to use purple, honey and white together on a card. Well this sweet witch goes so well in those colors! I love this image from Inkadinkado. She is colored with Copics and cut out. I created a spooky background for her by sponging inside a circle mask.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks!


The clean and simple challenge at Splitcoast today honors tessaduck (Brenda). I used a die cut of an apple (from MFT Die-namics) on my card and embossed it with a basket weave. I inked up the embossing folder before putting the die cut to give it more dimension. This will be put away until the spring when I need thank you cards for my daughters' teachers.

Happy Birthday!


My friend's son just turned five yesterday so I chose this cute little man to celebrate the occasion. Masculine cards are not usually my thing but I do love using orange on a card and it just so happens that is one of his favorite colors. Lucky me! I colored the image, a digital from Whimsie Doodles, using copics and cut it out. I embossed a panel of blue to add a contrast color to the card. The embossing folder is new (I seem to like polka dots!). 
I'll be back with another post soon! I seemed to have found some crafting time now that the kids are back at school!

Gate Fold card


I tried a new challenge today over at Splitcoast, called a Gate Fold card. Such an easy technique with really cool results. The fun balloon die-cuts were my inspiration for my card and I used them as the center focal point. The rest of the card was just fun papers to go along with the colors of the balloon. So easy!
Here's a peek at the inside, which uses a coordinating paper of a simpler design with a sentiment.


The balloon die cuts are from My Favorite Things and the number die if from Papertrey Ink.

Cowgirl at Heart


Here is a card I made for the sketch challenge at Splitcoast today. I haven't colored with Copics in a while so I used a partial image of a favorite There She Goes image for my card today. I used some coordinating western papers to finish my card. So fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Cute!



Here is my card for the sketch challenge at splitcoast today. I chose my one of my favorite PI's from MFT, Cute-a-tude for today's card. I colored her with copics and paper pieced her dress to match the panels in the back. A big gingham bow finishes the card!

Be Happy


I'm trying some new techniques in my card making and love this new look. Clean and simple is one of the hardest styles to master (in my opinion) and this card is a case of one of the masters, Karen Dunbrook. I masked the side panel and sponges some shades of blue. Over that I stamped a repeating damask stamp that I inked in three different shades of blue. Once done with that, I removed the mask and scored two lines along the stamped panel. I used a scoring tool to add a line of holes to one of the score lines. Then I added a banner that had scored lines as well. The end result makes me smile!
