Leaves Are Falling

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs our challenge to you is leaves.  That's right!  We want to see leaves on your project.

I went a little leaf crazy on my project!  I started with Clearing Leaves and colored her with Copic markers in some lovely fall tones.  Then I kept adding leaves with a die cut from the Silhouette Design Store, embossing, and ribbon!  It reminds me of raking leaves as a kid and the wind just kept blowing more off of the tree!  A few fall colored gems, and it was finished.

You have a chance at some great Crafty Sentiments prizes this week.  You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments product, but if you do and you win, your prize is even bigger!

Take a break from raking the leaves and come play along!

Before Coffee

Welcome to another Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday Post.  I went monochromatic with my project this week.

I used Coffee & Tea Inchies for my focus images and stamped the Coffee Bean Background on half of my card.  I layered up the images to give them some weight and then stamped the But Not Always sentiment directly on the card.  A few black gems and it was done!

Don't forget to play along in the challenge for your chance to win some Rubbernecker Stamps cash to use in the shop.

Our Web

It is hard to believe it is the middle of October already!  And Friday the 13th on top of it all!  So what better day to feature a Halloween card made using Rubbernecker Stamps!

I used Halloween Set 1 and stamped the web using white craft ink on black card stock.  The sentiment is from the same set and I liked the effect of stamping the sentiment on the patterned paper I used for the background.  The spiders on the background are part of the paper which is from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection.  You can get it digitally on Snap Click Supply.  It is one of my favorite Halloween paper packs. 

Don't forget to check out the challenge while you are visiting the blog.  You have a chance to win cash to spend on your Rubbernecker Stamps wish list.

Spooky CAS

This week at Creative Knockouts the theme is one of my personal challenges...CAS or clean and simple.  I manage to do a CAS card occasionally, but when it is required, I find myself struggling.  This time, it wasn't quite as much of a struggle though.  The biggest struggle was trying to figure out where I put the cheesecloth!

I used the mummy from the Halloween Candy Corn set from Oddball Art and colored it with Copic markers.  The set also has a Frankenstein and vampire candy corn.  You can see the others over at the blog or in the shop.  I sprayed a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in marshmallow and scarlet on some black card stock and stamped my sentiment directly on the card.  I am not sure if this counts as CAS, but it is really CAS for me!

You have a chance to win 3 images from Oddball Art for playing along.  Click the badge below to check out the Halloween Candy Corn and everything else in the shop.

How awesome are they!

This is my project using Halloween Magic.  I have to admit, I was going to go in a completely different direction with this project.  Then I realized I needed to check the challenge theme, which is add brown or kraft paper.  My thought processes came to a screeching halt as I tried to figure out how to make brown fit into my idea!  Then I remembered I had this paper pad from Carta Bella.  It is All Hallows Eve and is also available digitally on Snap Click Supply.  It fits the theme perfectly and it saved the day!

I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using the Silhouette Cameo.  Her hooves have silver Wink of Stella and her horn a little clear. 

You have all month to play along with us at Sami Stamps.  You have a chance to win some great prizes, just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image so you will be eligible to win.

Going Batty!

Are you up for another challenge?!  Great!  I have on for you over at the Crafty Gals Corner.  We want you to go batty and add a bat to your project. 

This is Josie Zombie Witch from Scrap n' Dipity.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  The paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Haunted collection that you can find over on Snap Click Supply.  I printed it for another project and just didn't like the way it looked.  It definitely works for this image AND it has bats!!  And what is a witch without a bit of sparkle?  She has some silver Wink of Stella on her bat and skull jewelry and a touch of clear sparkle the magic swirling around her wand.

Scrap n' Dipity is our sole sponsor this week.  You have a chance to win 3 digital images just for playing along.  You can click the badge below to pop over to the shop and see what's available.

Why don't you go batty with us?!
