Boo! and a Sketch Challenge

Halloween
I’m not at all a Halloween person, but I fell head over heals over the Motley  Monsters designer series paper! I used portions of this particular design because I loved the piercing hello eye staring back at you.  I can’t wait to mail it to my nephew in Wisconsin.

Halloween

Isn’t little Frankie just adorable? What kid won’t find him not so scary? I know I don’t normally send out Halloween cards, but my little nieces and nephews are gonna get something sweet and spectacular this year.

Since I also don’t purchase Halloween stamp sets the little letters think it’s dies were perfect for this card.  The layout is an inspiration by Creative Challenge Club. I’m not sure how long they’ve around, but I love their challenge layouts and I want to help get the word out about them.

Dazzling Details Snowflakes

snowflake1

This is my most favorite Christmas card and I plan on making about 75-100 of them.  It is my favorite because it is the easiest to make and I can churn them out faster than the spark can dry.

I normally place rhinestones of different sizes in the middle of each snowflake, but on this one I wanted to try something new and I used Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.  It adds the same spark as the rhinestone and you just have to let it dry a little.  It’s gorgeous!

There Are No Words

Sorry

If waking up to an earthquake wasn’t bad enough, waking up a second time to the news of a passing of a loved one (through marriage) is even worse.  I had the card sketch ready with a different sentiment, but decided on “I’m Sorry” when I heard the sad news.Loss

Although banners are so super easy to make with snips, I decided to use the Bitty Banners Framelits because it made layering easy. The Night of Navy card stock gives the sentiment a little more focus.

Thinking of You… Have You Thought of Me?

Thinking of You

When I first began making cards I did NOT like flowers and leaves.  HAHAHA… now I absolutely love them. I think it may have been because I don’t have a green thumb. Usually my plants die, but I soon discovered that paper flowers don’t need watering and especially you don’t need to them. Now, I just talk to myself as I’m putting a card together with flowers. This reminds me, I better go water my in-house tree my cousin Veva gave me. LOL.

Thinking of You

If you notice the specific print on the paper I used in the Back to Black designer series paper has a natural fence design to it.  It’s the perfect compliment to the hard wood print.  Also, you would NEVER know I kinda messed up the sentiment on the actual wood because THERE ARE NO MISTAKES IN CARD MAKING… LoL.  But then again, after you look at it the cover up looks much better.
