Spooktacular Halloween Card

Hello! The month of Halloween has arrived and I enjoy making Halloween cards for family and friends. This Spooktacular Halloween Card was inspired by a couple of challenge. The photo at Inspiration Station has a girl trick-or-treating with a green pumpkin pail and there are bats on the house. The photo at Two Old Bats inspired me to use the spider web oval stamp by Newton's Nook. Most of the supplies used on this card are by Newton's Nook. The image is called Halloween Pile and it was colored with Copic markers. The Oval Frame Dies were used and the patterned paper is from the Halloween Meows paper pad. Everything was adhered flat for easy shipping and that's it. So glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day! 🎃

Pumpkin Gnome Card

Good day! Pumpkin season is here and I couldn't resist making a card with the Hello Pumpkin Gnome stamp set by Unity Stamps. Copic markers were used to color the image. The colors used were selected to coordinate with the patterned paper from the Happy Fall paper pad by Echo Park (2020). A little brown gingham is peeking out from behind the image and layered onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock by Stampin' Up!. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!🍁

Leaf Fall Greetings Card

Hooray... It's officially Fall!!! Now, I just need the cooler weather to arrive. It will still be about a month before the leaves turn colors here in Oklahoma. We have two maple trees in our yard. One tree turns a reddish orange and the other turns yellow. So, for this Leaf Fall Greetings Card I used the ink smooshing technique using distress inks: Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Aged Mahogany. The image is from Unity Stamps called Thankful Leaf by Graciellie Designs. The scallops & rectangles nesting dies by Unity Stamps was also used. To finish it off a sentiment from the Bountiful Fall stamp set by Unity Stamps was added. The papers are from the Fall Forest Mat Stack by DCWV (2019). Everything was adhered flat and that's it. So glad you stopped by and I wish you a happy and blessed Fall!🍁

Newton's Crate Fall Card

Hello! There are only a couple of days left until the arrival of Fall. I usually make a few cards to mark the changing of the seasons. To make this Newton's Crate Fall Card I used the challenges colors at Inky Paws to use: Orange, Green, Black and Cream. The images and sentiment are from a new stamp by Newton's Nook called Newton's Crate. Copic markers were used to color the images. I tried to color the cat to look like my youngest, she is a muted Torti (photo below). She is mainly black with one orange paw, a spot on her head and then she looks like she has subtle orange highlights. She is a sweet and beautiful girl! Anyway, back to the card... I found a linen looking paper and I stamped the edges with a stamp from the Stitchery stamp set by Stampin' Up!. Then I used some Frayed Burlap distress ink around the edges. A piece of black gingham and leaf print paper were used to anchor the image. Five die cut leaves add some detail and everything was adhered flat. That's it! So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.🍁

Boo Ghosts Halloween Card

Good day! My hubby is working today, so I'm playing in my craft room. I decided to make a Halloween card to play along with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge. It's just a simple card featuring a Boo Ghosts image by Pink & Main, from the Hello Bootiful stamp set. These ghosts just make me smile, they are definitely too cute to spook. Some striped and polka dot papers were selected and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. To finish it off I added five sequins for some sparkle and that's it. So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.👻

Later in the afternoon I decided to make another card with the same image. This time I used the scallops & Rectangles nesting dies by Unity Stamps. A bolder striped paper was used along with the same polka dot paper. Just a few changes, but I like how it turned out.👻

Fall Blessings Card

Hello! Each day we get closer to the arrival of Fall and that makes me happy. I keep waiting for the weather forecast to show a good cold front, but that hasn't happened. So, I'll keep waiting!🍁

This Fall Blessings Card uses a new stamp set I bought from Taylored Expressions called Autumn Blessings. The sentiment was already stamped and had been hanging out on my craft desk since last year, so I used it. It's by Impressions Obsession. The patterned papers are from the Welcome Autumn paper pad by Echo Park (2021) and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. Well, that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Fall Card with Cat

Good day! Is anyone else counting down the days until Fall/Autumn arrives? It's my favorite time of year and after the super hot Summer I'm ready for the cooler weather. In anticipation of Fall, I made this Fall Card with Cat. It features a stamped image by Newton's Nook called Paw-tumn Newton and it was colored with Copic markers. I love using gingham paper, especially in Fall. The design is super simple and everything was adhered flat for easy shipping. So glad you stopped by and enjoy the rest of your day.🌻
