Boo!

I was invited to Guest Design for the Sweet 7 Digital Designs Challenge, the theme is Halloween and this is the card I have made using the fabulous Pumpkins & Jack-o-Lanterns image - there are 2 images in the set and I have used the Jack-o-Lantern image for my Clean and Simple card.


I printed the Jack-o-Lantern image three times and coloured it with ProMarkers, I also stamped a selection of Halloween images from Clearly Besotted and cut them all out with Hexagon dies from Memory Box.


I inked the edges of the hexagons and attached them with foam tape for a little dimension.  The spider web background was created with a stencil from My Favorite Things.

You can never have .....

too much Chocolate!  Well that's what the sentiment says anyway - I think you probably can, but it's a nice thought.

I have been playing with one of the fabulous Card Kits from Paper Creator's Crafts.

This one is called Chocolate Bunny and includes:  Backing Paper and Layers Sheet, Jumble Pyramage Sheet, Envelope Front and Envelope Back.


They are really easy to make up, I just do a dry run first so that I know what I am doing - the layers are all numbered and there is a picture of the finished card to guide you as well.


All that I added was some dark brown card stock and my card base.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Party Time Tuesdays Challenge 186 - Anything Goes
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Lots of Layers

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Tis the Season

This is a little Christmas card that I have made just for fun.  The idea came from a card on the Lawn Fawn blog, but my card ended up looking quite different.


The cute little robins come from the Clearly Besotted Rockin' Robin stamp and die set along with the sentiment.  My white rectangles have been cut with my favourite Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies.
