Spoiled Rotten

Heavy metal in a feminine way!

There is gold everywhere on this card!  The background was embossed with gold, the lipstick tubes are gold and the sentiment is embossed with gold...can there  ever be enough  gold?

I have had this stamp stored away in my going to use this box and  have never thought of a card to make with it. I used foam to pop up the sentiment circle. This card was so much fun  to make and I know exactly who it is getting mailed to!

One Buck

Christmas  is coming and where are the cards to send out?  Yes,  this may be the  second Christmas card finished this year.

This stamp/die set has been looked at many  times but never  stamped  before now!!  The deer is popped up and a little greenery  and bling added.  It looks woodsy  and  simple.

Oh man...I wish my bones flexed as much as this jammin skeleton's did!  This looks like total Skellifun!

Using just black and white seemed like the perfect color combo. Shimmer was added to the skeleton, black splatters and black strip.  I think young teens would get a kick out of this card.

Coffee Chickens

This sassy chicken scares the other chickens in the coop... until she has had her morning coffee.  

Guess it is safe to leave the coop!!

Shery from STAMPlorations has given us this spooktacular image to download and use. 

Using gelatos the orange smears were added.  Mustard Seed distress spray dripped from the end of the sprayer added some splatters.  Then, black ink was stenciled on to add the swirls and stars and numbers were stamped.   After printing the image, it was colored.  The black spider web frame was cut on the cricut.  The sentiment was embossed on black paper and this spooktacular card was complete!

Thanks for stopping by and have a spooktacular day!

Fall Coffee

I am having fun with the acrylic block stamping and it  adds such  a warm, cozy, colorful fall background.  The spoon is cut from scraps and the coffee cup is a copper beauty.

This is my September coffee exchange card and she  has already received it!

Happy Fall

Carmel Apples, leaves crunching under your feet, scarecrows and a trip to the pumpkin patch to pick out that perfect pumpkin for carving are the joys of fall.  I also like putting on the hoodie and watching the leaves burst with color.  Yes, I think fall is my favorite season of all!

After running the card base through an embossing folder, versa mark was applied.  Gold embossing powder was spread on and heat set.  The scarecrow was colored on the  inside of the card.

Have a great  day!
