Hey all! I’m here to share a couple of halloween cards that I had created for World Cardmaking Day. It was for a challenge on the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine…and there is still time to play along to win some great prizes. You can find all the details for the challenge here!
This is the Patterned Paper challenge.
I have this box of Halloween stuff that only seems to come out in October! This is the Sweet & Spooky collection by Bella Blvd, which was actually part of one of my SCT Samplers I think in 2019 (but don’t quote me). I also added a few chipboard pieces from the Simple Stories, Frankie & Friends collection which I thought went well with these papers!
I love how these turned out! You should stop by the SCT blog here and see all the great things that are happening!
This is what they gave us to work with and the challenge is to use any three on your project!
Here’s my card, using this month’s Sheetload of Cards from Call Me Crafty Al. You can find the link here, to see how you too can get these really fun monthly sketches!
Here is my card!
I managed to incorporate quite a few of the suggestions in this card! I used some pieces from my October 2018 SCT Sampler…
The DP is from Bella Blvd’s Sweet & Spooky Collection (flowers and polkadots). The stamped image (green) and sentiment (friendship sentiment) is from Stampin Up as are the inks. I did emboss the sentiment using some Stampendous embossing powder (embossing). The die cut is also from Stampin up and the vellum is my last of the Doodlebug! (I got a lot of projects out of that 12×12 sheet!). To finish it off, just some bling from my stash (sparkle).
If you want a fun challenge the Festive Friday blog has some great ones and this one is open until the 30th.
After a bit of a hiccup in our challenge blog (we believe we were hacked) we are up and running again at Creative Corner Challenges! We have a new challenge for you hosted by Tina (who has a little prize for this week’s winner). We want to see eyelets and/or brads on your projects this week. It can be one or it can be many.
I have a layout for you this week of my husband and sweet boy. This was taken a few years ago when we did our annual family vacation to Cuba. It was the first one with Riley and so he is six months old in these pics. We were just getting Riley used to the water and he took to it like a fish. He still loves it!
The DP is from my stash and it’s the Bella Blvd Super Stud collection. I added a few brads in the circles and just a little bling on some edges. I hope you like it.
Make sure you stop by the blog to enter this week and also to see the other creations by the DT for you this week.
