Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween everyone!! Hope you're all having a great Saturday! I've been wanting to share these cards with you for over a week now but I was waiting until I was sure that the recipients had received them.

I saw this stamp (Tilda with a Spider Web) and knew I had to use it to make these Halloween cards. I pretty much stamped them in Memento ink, embossed them with some sparkly black detail powder, and coloured them in with my Stampin' Write markers. All of the paper used came from the Halloween Key Ingredients kit by Taylored Expressions (love these kits). I wanted to keep these cards simple so I just used my corner rounder and some pop dots on the image to finish off the card. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out (although I wish I had made more Halloween cards this year...these are the only ones that I got around to making).

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations! Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

Hi everyone! Hope that you're having better weather than I'm having! It was so gray and rainy all day...just the perfect kind of day to stay inside and make cards (once I got home from work that is). I've started my Christmas card making and wanted to share what I've made so far with you.

All the supplies are from Stampin' Up!. I used the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit, Stampin' Write Markers, Basic Black ink and Versa Mark ink, embossing powder, Whisper White organza ribbon, Top Note die, and a bunch of different stamp sets (Dasher, Good Cheer, Jolliest Time of the Year, Berry Christmas and Patterned Pines).

I'm pretty happy with how my cards turned out and glad that I've got a start on my Christmas cards (I'm going to devote at least one day in November to try and finish them all up). Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations and hope that you all have a great night!!

Sunflower Tilda

Hi everyone...hope you're all having a great weekend! I just wanted to share some cards that I made last week for some mingles. I'm really loving this Tilda stamp right now (I think she has to be my favourite Magnolia stamp).

I inked her up with SU! Basic Black ink and coloured her in with my Stampin' Write markers. The cardstock is some of SU!'s new in-colors (Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Dusty Durango) and I can't remember which company the patterned paper is from (I bought it a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to use it to make some autumn type cards with). I ran the image through my cuttlebug with my scalloped nesties and popped it up for some added oomph. I added some glossy affects to the sunflower (love this stuff)and added some of the in-color ribbon to finish off the cards.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my newest creations. I got a bunch of new product this past week that I'm just itching to use so I'm hoping to get some more cards made today (in between spending time with my guy, who flys back to Texas tomorrow for work and helping him get his stuff ready to pack as he'll be leaving super early tomorrow morning to catch his flight...the good thing is that he'll be coming home again in 5 days for Thanksgiving weekend). Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
