C4C254: Boo-tiful Day

Hello crafty friends -

It is time for another crazy challenge and this week I have whipped up a fun sketch to inspire you. I also have some fun new Halloween stamps that I just had to break out and give some stampy love.


Here is a look at the sketch and you can find more details on the challenge and some really great samples at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog.


For my card I used the new Monster Mash stamp set and coordinating dies. I die cut a couple of the little images and colored them with Copic Markers. Added a bit of glimmer here and there using a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. Also coated the big ol’ eye with Glossy Accents… all the better to stare at you! Used a few sequins, ribbon, and twine as accents. The designer paper is from the My Mind’s Eye Frightful paper pad.

Shaking up some Hello

Hello sweet friends -

How about something extra nice tonight? I made this lovely a while back and am just not sharing it here.


A few quick details: I created a shaker box using a spellbinder's label die, cardstock, designer paper, foam tape, and sequins. Created a sentiment topper by die cutting four pieces of yellow cardstock with the hello die and then stacking them together using Glossy Accents as an adhesive. For a final touch I painted over the hello with a glitter pen and then coated with more of the Glossy Accents.


The gnome was stamped on white cardstock, colored, and cut out. His hat was paper pieced form designer paper. I didn't like the way I colored it so I covered it up. :) Finished the card with Liquid Pearls and ivory jute.


Thanks for stopping by! I’m off to craft something new.

SPDSS11: Happy Fall Y’all

Hello crafty friends -

It is time for another sketch challenge at SugarPea Designs and this one has a delightful layout. It also forced me to do something I don’t usually do: cut off a piece of an image. Gasp. In this case I shortened the sweet image from Bountiful Blessings by cutting it out using a circle die. Sorry dearie, I had to leave your feet behind. ;)


Here is a look at the sketch:


I used some burlap ribbon and washi tape to add additional detail to my layers of designer paper. The green of the burlap also helped to tie in the green that I used on the main image since there was none in the designer paper. Added a few enamel dots for embellishment and as usual the main image was colored with Copic markers and accented with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen and Glossy Accents.
