Happy Halloween!

Pin It

I stopped by my fav stamp store again for a final sweep of fun halloween stamps and found another whimsical stick person by Karen Stolper.

I've decided to call this one Mr. Spookmeister...not sure why I picked the name but it seems fitting. I used leftover spider web paper for the background and sakura gelly roll pens for extra sparkle on the Spookmeister's jacket and pumpkins.

Happy Halloween!!

Peppermint Joy

Pin It

I really like this line of stickers I found from Penny Black. They make great cards and have a fantastic vintage, nostalgic look.

I wanted to play with the peppermint theme and used the new basic grey line of christmas papers. Their new collection is called 'figgy pudding' and the colors and designs are fabulous. Of course, the background paper is appropriately called peppermint. For added sparkle on the joy sticker, I used a sakura pen to the tags, swirlie, and candy. I finished the peppermint strings with su dazzling diamonds.

The figgy pudding collection...12x12 collection pack or 6x6 available at InkyDiva Card E~Boutique.

Snowman Hello

Pin It

I went to my favorite stamp store today and found these great snowman stickers. They are so cute, I thought they would look great on cards. The snowman looks like he's waving hello.

I used the 'merry christmas' sentiment from memory box. The designer paper is from basic grey 'dasher'. I used dimensionals to enhance the scalloped snowman.

I've been busy lately and found a few other stickers to try on cards. I'll be posting more this week since they are quick to make.

btw, the stickers are from penny black 'joyous season'.

Fall Whimsy

Pin It

There are so many great stamps out there for this time of the year. I found this cute and whimsical girl at one of my favorite stamp shops in Issaquah.

She is adorable with her big leafy balloons. To make her pop from the fall colors, I colored her hat and boots in crimson red. I thought the flowers would be a perfect touch for this adorable gal.

Happy Birthday Anna!

Pin It

Since Anna is one of my favorite bloggers, I decided to join the featured stamper challenge in honor of her birthday. I chose this card to CASE.

I love the colors on the pumpkin cart and the simple layout of Anna's card. I changed the following elements on my card:
--used basic grey 'infuse'
--distressed the first layer
--used ribbon for the embellishment
--used 4 1/4x4 1/4 size for the card

Happy Birthday Sweet Miss Daisy!! :)
