It’s getting spooky on the Make the Cards Challenge blog today! Our new theme is up, and you guessed it —HALLOWEEN is what we are going with!

I was just using some bits and pieces from my Halloween box for this one. I knew I wanted to use that NEVERMORE tag as my focal point. So I just started grabbing bits and bobs that I thought would layer well for work with the card. I really like how this turned out!

The DT has put together some really great projects for you to see on the blog. They know how to do spooky right!

Stop by and play along with us…we can’t wait to see your spooky or cute projects

So we are halfway through the month and a mid-month reminder for our Pile It On Challenge…… Pets!  Now this go round, it’s Pets and/or your favorite way to color an image.

We are still being sponsored by Dr. Digis.

 

So my card for this week is a cute lil thing.  I stamped this image when I was at a friend’s house, so I don’t know who it is by.  I colored it with my Copics, which is my usual go to coloring method and then added a bit of glossy accents and some pop dots to the hat.  The DP is from Simple Stories and I added just a few sequins and some Nuvo drops in clear to finish it off.

Yep, another card with my Sampler pack.  I love how this one turned out.  I took the clips from the Vicki Boutin All The Good Things collection and clipped off the end and just used the images as die cuts.  I had the sentiment in my box so I thought it worked well with this card.

I added just a bit of Nuevo dots in black to add a bit of dimension to this.

Thanks for hanging out today!

 

Love Birds

Inspired by a post I saw on a blog today (I’ll try and find the post for you later because it was a great idea for cards), I created this card for the challenge at Red Carpet Studios this week.

Inspired by The Wedding Singer (A movie I myself have not yet seen, hard to believe I know, considering how much of a movie whore I am, but I am not a fan of Adam Sandler), the challenge is to create a wedding or anniversary card.

Here’s mine…

I went for non-traditional colors on this one and I think it could really be used for either wedding or anniversary which is always great.

Everything on this card is from my stash.  The cardstock is Co-ordinations.  I used my Leafy Branch embossing folder and then I did some distressing.  The felt birds are from Maya Road and I have had them for ever.  I printed the sentiment on my computer and cut it out.  The tag and bling heart are from my stash as well.  I hope you like it.
