2 Old Bats: September

Welcome everyone to this month’s new challenge for 2 Old Bats Halloween Challenge. Can you believe we are in September already!

As always, our challenge is anything goes and each month we give you an inspiration piece to get you started.

Here’s what I created for you

I was really inspired by those skeleton heads! I was actually going to go black and white and then I decided to add a little gold in there just because. The image is from a Tim Holtz halloween collection that I have and I went over it with some distress ink. The paper is from recollections. I die cut a piece of gold foil paper and then did a bit of gold embossing for my sentiment. I really like how this turned out.

Be sure to stop by the blog and see the great creations that the rest of the DT has done and be sure to play along with us with your own Halloween inspired project!

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge: July

Here is this month’s challenge at Two Old Bats inspirational challenge!

Lots to choose in this one, maybe it’s your pet in a costume, pumpkins, rats, moons and cats. Ravens and Witches Hats! Oooooohh I made a poem!! 😉

I chose to go with the Ravens as my inspiration. I had this cut apart with the ravens in a tree and then some little Tim Holtz die cuts. I used a couple of different DPs for this card!

Come by the blog, see what the DT has created and please play along with us!

TOBHC: November

November is here! Can you believe it!

Ok so today is our first full challenge over at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge...our jump start challenge was such an overwhelming success we can’t wait to see what you create with a whole month to do so!

Look at our awesome November mood board!

Our theme is anything goes and we hope that you will use this mood board as a kick start to your project as you play along with us!

I was really inspired by the black, white and purple color scheme as well as the witch silhouette for my card.

I used some Tim Holtz distress oxides to create the background and then I had a Recollections stamp and die set for the images. A little scrap of DP and some twine as well as a sentiment from Tim Holtz and we are set to go. I love how this turned out.

Now head over to the blog to see how the rest of the team were inspired by the board and then we hope that you will play along with us!

Hey everyone! I’m happy to announce that I have been accepted to the Pile It On challenge blog and I am so excited to be a part of the team!

Pile It On

 

 

This is my first challenge with the blog and the theme is Black/Purple & Orange.  Your project would have those three colors or a combination thereof, as the primary focus.

The Challenge begins at 7AM CST (U.S.), and closes at 11:55PM CS  the Saturday before the next challenge begins, with a bonus theme on the 3rd Sunday of the month.

Our sponsor this month is Ike’s Art.  I am using an image called Frankinella for my Halloween Tag.

I used a large manilla tag and added some Halloween paper from my stash.  I then added some Dusty Concord Spray Stain to some Heidi Swapp Metallic white paste and mixed it together and put it onto the tag with a crackle stencil from Tim Holtz.

My image was colored using my copics and I added a bit of Wink of Stella to her dress.  After placing it on the tag, I added a few pieces of Halloween ephemera from my stash and some enamel dots from Doodlebug.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog.  The rest of the DT has created some awesome inspiration for you.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

You are my sunshine

Hello all!

Just a fun card today…I am in a swap on a FB group called Canadians Crafting with Paper.  Our theme is BEACH.

So, here’s the card I created for my partner.  I did a little bit of mixed media for the background using some of the Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then cut a circle out with my sizzix die and added some sequins, pearls and glitter to create a shaker.  I put a little bit of the turquoise cardstock behind the shakers so it blended a bit better.   I colored my image from CC Designs (DUDE – I actually cracked this one open for the first time although I think I’ve had it for at least 2 or 3 years in my stash!) with my copics and stamped the sentiment from Hello Bluebird.  A few enamel dots from Michael’s and voila!  I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I hope my partner likes it!

C4G -Bugz!

Hello one and all!  Did you head on over to the Cardz 4 Guyz blog yet!  It’s a great challenge…It’s all about the bugs!

Get out those images or pics of your favorite creepy crawlies and let us see them!  Absolutely any insect ( sometimes even non-insects like slugs, snails and spiders).

I know it’s still August, but I just felt like making a Halloween card!  So I created this fun little guy using an image from my Cricut Air

dav

The DP is just from my halloween stash and then the little sentiment is a rub on from Tim Holtz.  I added some glitter to his hat buckle and then a few enamel dots to finish it off.  I think he looks more cute than creepy but it totally makes me smile.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with this week!

 

The Ordinary

Hey everyone!

I’m happy to be a guest designer this month on the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge!  Their challenges are always anything goes, as long as you do coloring of course!

My card for this week’s challenge features and image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  I think he’s just great for those masculine cards that we all need but never quite seem to have enough of right!

dav

So I’m still in the process of working through some stash papers that I found, which is what I used for this card.  I colored him with my copics and used my CC designs stitched rectangle dies to cut and mat him.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz tiny words and I added a few sequin stars and enamel dots to finish him off.

I hope you like it and please come play along on the blog and see what the rest of the design team has created to inspire you this week!

I decided to do some non-traditional colors for this card.  I did some smooching with my Tim Holtz distress inks in picked raspberry and peacock feathers.  The stamps are from Hampton Arts.  I think he’s just adorable.

Remember to Play

Hello everyone! So today marks my first project for the Kitty Bee Design Team.  I’m pretty darn excited!

Our challenge this go round is Fairytale/Fantasy.  We have 2 great great sponsors for this challenge.  I am using an image from All Dressed Up

7e2fd-20152ball2bdressed2bup2bstamps

I was inspired by the fairy tale Peter Pan…who didn’t want to be a lost boy at one point… just playing all the time…no rules, no responsibilities, and you were only hindered by your imagination.  These days with the age of electronics, I think sometimes kids forget how to really just use their imagination and play! ….

dav

The DP is from Stampin Up and the sentiment is from Tim Holtz.  I colored the image with copics.  I added a bit of cord from my stash and the circles are dies from Spellbinders.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us at Kitty Bee this week….we want to see what you can use your imagination to create!
