More Halloween Goodies

Well would you believe.......I actually dusted off my brayer and got
inky with it??? Did the old resist stamping technique with my
versamark pad and some Close to My Heart orange ink. Yummy
candy corn stamp from Stamps of Life! No trick, this card is a treat!!
Ok, how corny is

Where Did October Go??

I lost almost 2 weeks!! Yikes! I guess a 4 day crop and a kids birthday
party will do that to

Here is another great Halloween idea.......the background on this card
reminds me of peeling wallpaper in a "spooky" mansion.....I "stamped"
it using the sides of a flashlight!! Use Tim Holtz peeled paint ink....and
it made for one spooktacular background! More to follow......

Had some fun playing with Cosmo Cricket today!
Wanted to finish off a quick card inspired by the
SSD sketch #45. Used their Garden Variety line
paper and chipboard for something different! Also
pulled out some new spellbinders dies......can't help
but enjoy playing with new toys!

Just had to take a break from my Halloween posts
to post this sweet little butterfly card!!
I made it for a color challenge....had to be Red,
Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue represented
and no other "colors". Love this bright little card!

It's here.......

More spooktacular the easy breezy cards.....this
one was a snap to make! Used some of my OLD DCWV fall stack
papers. Who knew they were so cute? Used my new Spellbinders
labels 14--new goodies are always fun! Also some glittery ribbon
from Mikes.....ya know a gal's gotta have her bling! More to come,
stay tuned......

30 "one"derful days......

I love fall, and I especially love Halloween! Over the next
month, watch out! Spooktacular projects are heading your
way! I'm starting with this "Trick or Treat"'s from
SSD sketch #44. I played with my Tim Holtz distressing inks
in bundled sage, rusty hinge (WOW, love this one!) and also
pumice stone. Embossed the web with my cuttlebug folder,
then blended the inks over it....really pops it! Then I mixed
it up.....the stamp under the "trick or treat" (which is stamped
on acetate, by the way!) is a SSD tile stamp, the banners and
the "trick or treat" was done with the Stamps of Life banners
and Halloween sets. The result is absolutely maaaahvelous!
