Trick or Treat!

Image
Hi everyone! I am here today to share with you a cute Halloween card I created using two colors of Distress Oxides and two stamps from I brake for stamps.

When I saw this cute little image with only Cat's paws showing I knew this sentiment would be purrrfect...

The image is called Guess Who and the sentiment is called Smell my feet. I created the background by using two distress oxide colors, Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber.

I also added some washi tape and a cute metal embellishment.

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop - Day 3 You complete me

Image
It is day 3 of the coffee lover's blog hop. Today I am sharing a card I created using a cute set from Neat & Tangled.

I don't typically create cutesy cards, but this little guy is so adorable and it has such fun sentiments. I had these cute little coffee creamers sitting on my desk from the last hop, so this was a perfect time to get those onto a card.
Hopefully you hoppers are taking a break between your comments to enjoy a nice cup of your favorite drink!
Thanks so much for stopping by!



Coffee Lover's Blog Hop - Day 2 Pumpkin Latte

Image
Hello hoppers and coffee lovers. For day 2 of the Coffee Lover's blog hop I decided to create a pumpkin spiced latte card. I had some of this beautiful graphic 45 paper in my scrap pile, just enough for a card.

I picked up this little coffee Die from Taylored expressions last summer and have not had a chance to use it yet.  It is so cute and small, not how we like our coffee, but great for a card.

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop - Spider Coffee Day 1

Image
Wow! It seems like just last week we were hopping through the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog hop and now here we are again for our Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  I am in the middle of packing up my craft room for a move, so I am not sure if I will be able to get 7 cards finished this week, but I will do my best. 

I designed this image using pic Monkey. I had an idea of spiders coming out of a coffee cup, creepy I know, but it is close to Halloween after all.

I embellished the card with some washi tape and a spider token.  Oh and also a little arsenic label. So tell me Coffee Lovers...would you drink this cup?

Thanks for stopping by!



7 Days of Halloween - Day 7 Distress Blending

Image
It is day 7 of my 7 days of Halloween. I wanted to do something different, a blending combination I had never tried before and I am so glad that I did.

To see in detail how I created this card you can click on the video below. 



I used a circle die cut to mask of the moon and created the background by blending two distress oxides and one distress ink.

The stamp that I am using is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps and is called Winter Woods Scene 4.  I also used the bat stamp from the Tim Holtz Halloween set called Haunted House.

The sentiment is from the Halloween Clippings Sticker set from Ideaology.  I hope that you have enjoyed my series over the last 7 days.

Don't forget, I am doing a giveaway over on my you tube channel, so be sure to check out all 7 videos.

It is day 5 of my 7 days of Halloween. Today is my favorite day and my favorite card. I am going to share with you my process for creating a vintage Halloween card.   

I am using three stamps from I brake for stamps to create this card., Ruler Background, Girl on Pumpkin and Travel Planes and Letters. 

To see how I created this card you can click on the video below.



To create this card I used several layers of the Halloween Paper stack from Tim Holtz. I also used a die called lovely view to add some contrast.
