Happy Halloween!

I hope Michele doesn't mind me peeking in on her day!!   I feel a little guilty about missing my post this past week. . . I didn't get the usual stack of Halloween cards made this year but still managed a couple of items.

I completely {heart} Walzingmouse's "Midnight Feast" stamp set!!   I used it for my daughter's class's Halloween treats, and also for her teacher's card:

First, the treat boxes which I made using Stampin' Up's milk carton die:

It's a pretty small box but I managed to squeeze in a mini bag of M&Ms, Smarties, and a McDonald's gift certificate. 

I used Claire's stars and bats, and her spookalicious sentiment 
to decorate the boxes, punched a hole with Crop-a-Dile in the top
and tied it off with a black twine bow.

I also turned to "Midnight Feast" for her teacher's card:

This amazing paper is "Blackbird" from Memory Box
and "Midnight Feast" did the rest :^) . 

Here's the inside with the McDonald's gift card in place:

This set has so many amazing stamps, especially this Gothic arch!

And when you take out the gift card:

You find the witch zooming past the crescent moon :^) . 

I love making Halloween cards and missed it this year, 
but I know I'll have a bunch for next year using
"Midnight Feast."   It's fabby!!! 

Hope your Halloween was super spooky!!!

A Tag

Good Morning and Happy Halloween! I've got a little tag today. I made it using Claire's free download a while back. I usually don't do digi but she was so cute I couldn't resist. I colored her up with copics and then added tons of wild honey distress ink. I rounded the corners and matted her on some older making memories paper. Big ole bow on the top finishes things off. Thanks for stopping in!

Merry Christmas

This card is made with the polka dots from Off-Beat Backgrounds and the Poinsettia image from Bountiful Baskets Additions. I colored and cut out the flowers, and then popped them up with foam tape. The A2 card is adhered onto a piece of 5x7 Scarlet Jewel (PTI) cardstock.

Thanks for looking!

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #19

Hi there! There is a new sketch up at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Just click for details. I decided to use my Tiny Trees set. I heart this set so much!
I used a Kraft base (PTI) and some lovely Cosmo Cricket paper. I think its from the nutmeg collection. I strung some buttons on some rustic twine and stamped the sentiment underneath, then I added a rustic twine bow.
I was feeling extra crafty so I finished off the inside. I am really proud of this one! Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Tiny Trees

Sorry I missed Thursday again!  But I had great fun sitting down with Claire's Tiny Trees set tonight.  I was in the mood for using some patterned paper.  This time I chose Stampin' Up's luxurious textured autumn patterns.

"Paper piecing" with the tree shapes, 1-3/4" punched circles,
some sponging, some direct-to-paper ink application,
and lots of SU foam dimensionals. 
You can click on the photos and
(+) zoom in for closeups!

I used the little leaf stamps by stamping off the ink one time
so they were nice and light on the sentiment panel.

Cardstock is Papertrey Ink, and the ink used is
Memento rich cocoa and 
various fall shades of Versamagic and Memento.

Hope you're having a Happy Fall!

Thanks for coming by :^) .

The ribbon is some dyed seam binding from Etsy. I used Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream and Kraft Cardstock. The focal image is made with a Label 4 Nestabilitie, and the flourish that is gold embossed comes from Very Vintage Label 4.

Hope you're having a great week!

Fall Tree

Had fun trying to come up with a fall card with my Waltzingmouse stamps. I used Sewing Box Christmas to make this one. The background is a Cuttlebug folder on Coredination paper and then sanded. The fence is a Martha Stewart punch.

Sorry I'm Late!

Hi there! Forgot to post before I headed out of town for my SIL's wedding. (You can see a few pics on my blog if you are interested). Anyhow I have a cute little card featuring Teeny Trees. I stamped the little trees in brown. I added orange leaves. I used some crinkly green ribbon for grass. I inked up the edges in green. I added a sentiment in brown and glued the whole thing to green card ( I think its Bazzill). Thanks fro stopping in!
