Sweet Sunday........Witching You a Happy Halloween




Happy Sunday Peeps!!


Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:


I turned the sketch on its side. I wanted to use my fun new set from Stampin Up called Tee Hee.
I stamped the witch's dress with Tangerine Tango onto some Whisper White card stock, I then stamped the shoes using Black memento ink. The hat and the broom was stamped onto some scrap white using black and chocolate chip ink. I cut then out and added to the main image panel with some dimensionals. 

The base of the card is Tangerine Tango card stock and the DSP is from the Motley Monsters paper pack. I matted all the layers with Basic Black card stock.


The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped with black and die cut. I added some glittery black sticky back rhinestones that I had in my stash.


Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:

Fall Crafts


Happy Friday Peeps!!

Thought I would pop in here quickly and update my blog with what I have been up to as of late.

I have caught some sort of bug so I am home laying on the couch today but have been fairly busy crafting till this bug hit me.

I am doing a fall craft fair with a lady from work and I have been busy making some things for that.

I made these cute Halloween pumpkins on an old rusty spring. They are fun and easy, I have some fall ones as well, but have not got a picture of those yet.


Also doing some of these primitive pumpkins and jack o lanterns:



And how about these primitive Sunflowers? Love these!!


And lastly hubby made me a few of these:


I will be decorating these with some greenery and pine cones and maybe some bells and ribbon, we will see. You got any ideas?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Sweet Sunday.....Happy Halloween


Happy Sunday Peeps!!


Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:



I had such fun with this card, I love this set and that little ghost! I used the Stampin Up Fall Fest with matching dies for my ghost and pumpkin

And how about that fun tree paper in the BG? It is from the Motley Monsters pack.

I was very much inspired by this cute card from Mary Brown, I loved the fun little banners and the sparkly ghost with this BG paper, so that was my jumping off point. I, of course, had to add the pumpkins. The base of the card is Crushed Curry card stock and then a layer of Basic Black. 



I used more Crushed Curry for my stripes under the circle. I cut a basic black circle to mount my sparkly ghost on. I used some of the silver glimmer paper for the ghost. The pumpkins are Cajun Craze and Hello Honey. I used Crushed Curry for the Happy Halloween banners. I used some toothpicks to mount them on.
I added a small black bow and a couple of twine bows on the pumpkins.

The Paper Players.....Boo To You


Happy Monday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card and little treat box that I made using the challenge this week at The Paper Players


I been itching to play with the new Fall Fest stamp set with matching framelits.
I have to admit, this set did not really strike my fancy when I first saw it and I have had it a bit and this is my first time using it. Why did I wait so long? I really think the pumpkins in this set are adorable!!
I did use some retired Halloween DSP on here, from the Houndstooth and Scaringbone pack. I just love the colors in that pack and the new Halloween paper is cute, and I will be using it soon but today I was just messing around and wanted to use up some of my enormous stash of retired papers.


The base of the card is Basic Black and then a layer of Basic Gray and then some of the DSP.
I die cut a large circle using Crushed Curry card stock and then sponged with Whisper White Craft ink.
The ghost is cut out with white card stock using a framelit and I stamped the faces using Memento Black ink.
I added some leaves and twine to the pumpkins. The bat is punched from Basic Black and I added some little red rhinestone for his eyes.
The sentiment is from the Good Greetings stamp set.

I made a matching little treat box and tag to go along with my card:


The pumpkins are stamped on whisper white with Pumpkin Pie ink and then cut out with the matching framelits. I then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink.
The tag is made with the white and top is punched with the scallop tag topper punch.
I added the tag to my bag of goodies using some of the tangerine tango two tone trim,
The box is a 2x2 inch square made with basic black and then embellished with basic gray and some more of the Houndstooth and Scaringbone DSP.

Well, that is all from me today, have a great week!!

Sweet Sunday......Hey There Pumpkin




Happy Sunday Peeps!!


Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:


As you can see I flipped the sketch on its side.

I am using this awesome new stamp set I got from SugarPea Designs called Bountiful Blessings.
I love this sweet little scarecrow girl! Isn't she adorable?
I stamped her on some white card stock using Memento Black ink. I colored using my copic markers.

The little pumpkin is also from the same set and stamped and colored with copics.


The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock and then a layer of white and all the DSP on here is from the Color Me Autumn pack.
I was inspired by many of the great cards I saw made with this set to add the "sunflower". It is made using my new MFT daisy die. I cut with Crushed Curry card stock and then sponged with Crushed Curry ink. The center is made with Chocolate Chip card stock. 


Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:

FMS.....Stache-ing through the Snow


Hello Peeps!!!

Popping in her real quick with a card I made this evening using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.


I am still in Christmas card making mode, even though it is still fairly warm here and I should be making some Fall and Halloween cards. Anyway it is what it is and I wanted to use another fun new Stampin Up set I got called Santa Stache.
I love this Santa, isn't he adorable?
I stared with a base of white and then use a piece of DSP from the Trim the Tree paper stack to cover the base. The strip down the side is also from the same pad of DSP. I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler down the edge of the DSP. I then used my corner rounder on all four corners of the base. 


I stamped the Santa image twice onto some white card stock with some Memento Black ink. I then colored with my copic markers. I cut out the Santa's stache by hand altho SU does have a die for this I failed to add it to my last order. :/

I then added the stache to the Santa with a few dimensionals.  I matted my image with more Cherry Cobbler card stock. The top of the image and mat are punched using my corner tag punch and I rounded the bottom corners. You can not see the "tag" corners cos my big ol' bow. I also used some glitter gems in the corner and on Santa's hat. You kinda get a peek of that through the ribbon.
The sentiment is from the same set. 
LOVE this Santa!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Sunday......Partridge and Pears





Happy Sunday Peeps!!


Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:


I really love this sketch, I pulled out another fun new set, Stampin Up's Partridge and Pears.

I stamped the image a few times with black stazon onto confetti cream card stock,
I colored with my aqua painter and ink pads, using Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake.
I colored a few extra pears and I colored the partridge a few times to get the colors I wanted. I am not sure what colors a real partridge is but I finally decide to use some Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake with a bit of Cherry Cobbler thrown in. I added the pears and bird over the original with a few dimensionals. I also added some crystal effects to the pears, looks cool IRL but does not show much in the pic.


The base of my card is Crumb Cake that I covered with some DSP from the Under the Tree pack, I LOVE the papers in this pack and I think I will be adding another pack to my next order. 
The next layer is Cherry Cobbler followed with some more DSP from the same pack.
I added the circle piece with dimensionals.
The sentiment comes from the same set and is stamped with black onto the cream card stock and matted with more Cherry Cobbler card stock.
I colored and cut out another pear and added it the sentiment piece. I die cut the bottom flag with Cherry Cobbler card stock as well. I added a small jute bow to the top of the pear and then scattered a few candy dots, pearls and sequins for some sparkle at the top.

I am also adding this to this week's Merry Monday Challenge:


I used the first row, which is Sparkle, Die cut and Red.
