October 24

This is my design team card for Try Stampin' (or not) on Tuesday.  The sketch is below and the theme is HALLOWEEN.

I started with a Halloween pad from Recollections choosing the embossed bats on red and the purple potion.  The moon was also pulled from the pad.
I cut the bat background to fit on the black top fold cs base.  I then followed the sketch to add the purple square.  The ribbon is left over from last Halloween as well as the piece of pick from a wreath I made.    The letters were cut from black cs using my cricut and the Lyrical Letters cartridge.  So much fun and very festive.

Here is the sketch for the week

I hope you have fun playing along as well.

Have a great day !!

Kittah in Autumn

October 17

           This is my design team card for Try Stampin (or not) on Tuesday.  The sketch for this week is below an the theme is LEAVES.
             I have to admit, I just had to use that stripe of kitty heads.  I just didn't have the heart to toss it and I  knew it wouldn't last in my stash anywhere.
             So, I started with two shades of brown card stock for the base and background.
           For the leaves, I blended Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and Brushed Corduroy on yellow and orange cs.  I cut them out using Spell Binders dies 'Foliage".  I then inked the edges with walnut stain.
          The cute little kitty was stamped with Simon Says stamp and die set.  I colored the kitty by brushing in distressed inks.
        The stripe of kitty heads that I so love is from an American Craft pad.

Here is the sketch for the week

I hope you have fun playing along ....

Monster Hugs

Stinkin Inkers October

Hello everyone.  This is my design team card for Stinkn' Inkers.   The theme this month is Monsters.

For this card, I started with a piece of white cs and I blended Blue Print Sketch, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Black Soot across the card.  I then used water drops to remove some of the ink.  I then went over it again with the same colors and a Kaiser Craft stencil, speckles. I also flicked white paint on the top black edge.
Using Lawn Fawn monster stamp set.  I stamped the goblins on purple designer paper and used a white gel pen to fill in the eye.  I used white embossing powder to stamp the square bats and heat set those.  Then, I used the corresponding dies to cut them out.
Using the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder on black CS.
With two shades of brown cs, I cut the spooky tree with my cricut and the Simply Scarecrow cartridge and then inked the edges with Walnut Stain ink.
I adhered everything on to a top fold black cs base lifting all the monsters on dimensional squares.

I hope you have fun playing along.
