Hey Crafty Friends! How is everyone? I’m doing great and hope you all are too! I’m excited to announce that Cricut Cardz Challenge has a new home over at Cardz Tv! So be sure to update your bookmarks.

I’m also really excited to share my Design Team card for Challenge #91! The challenge this week is “Things That Go Bump In The Night!” So get ready to make a Halloween card with the spookiest, scariest image you can find. You can use any carts and colors that you’d like.

I love making Halloween cards so I had a lot of fun with this one! I didn’t have any scary images, so I dressed up the pumpkin card from the Wild Card cart with some stamps. I think it turned out pretty creepy! Let me know what you think.

Now that's one pumpkin I wouldn't want to run into!

Eek! I hope he's not still hungry.

I dusted the bats with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I can’t wait to see your scary Halloween cards!!!

Hi! I hope you’re all having a good Monday evening. I wanted to share the card I made for Mary’s challenge at CardzTv. The challenge is to make a card without using your die cutting machines! So I broke out my Halloween papers and got to work!

Here is what I came up with. For details on this card please visit my YouTube page by clicking here. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my Blog and YouTube page. Hugs!

I also wanted to sneak in a BIG thank you to my boyfriend Kris for drawing my Avatar. You can see her in my blog header.  He is also working on a new blog header for me. Thank you so much, I love it!!!

I love the Bo Bunny Whoo-ligan's paper!

Distressed and inked edges are the perfect touch for Halloween cards.

Glittered bats in flight embellish the bottom of the card.

Hello! Today I’m sharing with you my DT card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #44. This weeks challenge is to make a Z-Fold card for Halloween. You can use any carts and colors you’d like! This was a fun card to make. I did keep it simple but I think it turned out pretty darn cute.

I used iridescent vellum paper to cut the ghost. I cut him at 4 inches using my Paper Doll Dress Up cart. To cut the word BOO, I used SCAL. I used my Creative Memories wavy cutter to cut the top of the card. The edges are stamped with a spider web stamp from Inkadinkado and embossed with iridescent ice from Stampin Up. The pattern paper is from Recollections and Target. Both of these papers are from last years Halloween collections. The ghost and pumpkin on the patterned paper are popped up using pop-dots. The orange cardstock on the inside of the card has been distressed using Tim Holtz’s paper distresser and inked with pigment inks. Stamping on the inside of the card is also from Inkadinkado. To complete the card I added white stitching around the ghost and the lettering.

To see a video describing it in detail click here to be taken to my youtube page.

I hope you can join in on the fun at CCC! We can’t wait to see your cards! Have a wonderful week and thanks again for stopping by.

I also entered this card into challenges at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays and Fantabulous Cricut. Both challenges required us to use real or faux stitching. Check out all of these challenge sites they are each a lot of fun!

Card opens to reveal some spooky fun and a place for your personal message.

The little ghost and pumpkin are pop-dotted for some extra dimension.

Hi! I hope everyone’s Thursday has been good. This afternoon I worked on a card that followed a sketch over at Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge blog. This card is also entered into EtsyInspired Challenge #88, & Simple Doodles. Please check out each of these challenge blogs, they are so fun to participate in!

The EtsyInspired store featured was Creation Designs. There was a lot of fun items to chose from. This little flower caught my eye and inspired my color combo for this card.

This cute little Valentine card was made using a Valentine $1 stamp from Inkadinkado. The image was stamped on watercolor paper using Staz-On ink and colored with watercolor pencils. Then it was distressed with Fire Brick distress ink. The patterned paper is from K & Company’s Lovely collection. The dark red solid card stock is from Recollections. I edged the right side with Creative Memories scallop scissors. The card base is white Georgia Pacific card stock, distressed with Fire Brick distress ink. Inside sentiment is from Inkadinkado. The hearts are punched out from the Lovely paper collection using the Creative Memories heart punch.
