13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #5 & Something Else on Saturday #128 Featuring Locasta from Sweet November Stamps

  Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post mixed in with Day #5 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en! Today's card uses one of the gorgeous witches from Sweet November Stamps digital range. This beauty in her fabooolous pumpkin trimmed dress is Locasta and I attempted to do the sky in Amy Young's style. I really like how it came out although once I had cut down the size of the original colouring the moon looks a bit big, but still loving all the colours and swirls.  Recipe: Stamps: Locasta & A Little Hello-ween both from Sweet November Stamps Papers: Bermuda Bay & Basic Black both from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Bermuda Bay from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers, Posca White Paint Pen from Uni Copics Used: Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R30, R20 Hair - BV13, BV17 Dress & Hat - V12, V15, V17, V09, YG11, YG13, YG17, T7, T9, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR27, G94, G99 Ruff - T5, T7, T9 Shoe - Y23, Y26, T7

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #4 Featuring Witch Cats from Isabel Cristina Stamps

  Good morning and welcome to Day #4 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en. I hope you're not getting sick of all my Hallowe'en cards yet! As you can probably tell, I am a huge Hallowe'en fan and love making Hallowe'en cards even though I make way more than I send out! Still love having lots of fun colouring all the fun images up!  Today's card features Witch Cats from Isabel Cristina Stamps over on Etsy - I love her cute images and how they can be arranged to create different scenes. For this one, I opted to use just two of the cats, the shelves and lots of potion bottles, candles and a crystal ball. I attempted to colour the wall to make it feel like they are in some witch's tower in a castle or something! I need to try and make my wall not so rectangular though - you know some rougher shapes!  Recipe: Stamps: Witch Cats from Isabel Cristina Stamps Papers: Old Olive, Basic Black, Frightful Sight DSP (Retired), Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks:

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #2 & The Paper Shelter Challenge #488 Digital Image

  Good morning everyone and welcome to my combined post for my Day #2 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en event and my DT blogpost for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter . Our challenge this week is to use a digital image, so you can use anything you like to create anything you like as long as the image is a digital image, not a stamped one. You can still use a stamped sentiment though.  For this card, I used the gorgeous Laid Back Witch and gave her a purple cloudy sky to be flying through. I added a few dots of Stickles for some glittery stars as well. The sentiment, which I thought went perfectly, was from the same patterned paper pack and the backing papers.  Recipe: Stamps: Laid Back Witch from The Paper Shelter Papers: Gorgeous Grape & Basic Black both from Stampin' Up, Ultimate White Graphic Paper, I Love Halloween Patterned Papers from Echo Park, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Hickory Smoke, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet & Dusty Conc

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #1 Featuring Purrfectly Wicked from Lawn Fawn

  Good morning and welcome to my 13 Days of Hallowe'en feature. I loved doing this last year, so thought I would do it again, sharing lots of my gorgeous Hallowe'en stamps and dies!  To kick us off, I have the cutest card using Lawn Fawn Purrfectly Wicked and Add On stamp sets to create a fun potion making scene. I generally don't buy the matching dies for a stamp set, but boy did I wish I had for these images as all those tiny pieces of candy were so fiddly to fussy cut out!  Recipe: Stamps: Purrfectly Wicked & Purrfectly Wicked Add On both from Lawn Fawn Papers: Old Olive, Basic Black & Frightful Sight DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Ultimate White Graphic Paper, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Bermuda Bay from Stampin' Up, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers & Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks all from Tim Holtz, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers Accessories: Key Lime Jewel Drops from Nuvo Copics Used: Bro

Scene It Sunday #65 Featuring Pumpkin Wendy from Di's Digi Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday. I decided to go for a cute pumpkin but non-Hallowe'en based card for this week's post. I have a couple of work friends who don't celebrate Hallowe'en, but I don't want them to be left out when I give out my Hallowe'en cards, so I always try to make some more Autumn based cards and this image is just perfect for that!  I coloured a simple background to the image and kept the rest fairly plain too, just adding a sentiment and some patterned paper behind her.  This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #168 Anything Goes Allsorts Challenge Week 646 Anything Autumn Di's Digi Challenge Creepy or Cute A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #146 Anything Goes Digi Doodle Studios Challenge #43 Fall or Hallowe'en 613 Avenue Create Challenge #11 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Pumpkin Wendy from Di's Digi Stamps, Newton's Pumpkin Patch from Newton's Nook Papers: Pumpkin Pie & Mossy

Stampers Delights New Release Tutorial Featuring Anime Cheers

Good evening and welcome to my second post of the month sharing my projects for the new releases from Stampers Delights . Today's card uses the gorgeous Anime Cheers stamp set and although primarily a Happy New Year card the image could be used for so many different occasions.  I used the embossing resist technique on this card to create my own background paper. You can read the tutorial on how I did this on my Stampers Delights blogpost here . And here's the card alongside the stamp set...

Something Else on Saturday #127 Featuring Raccoons from C.C. Designs

Good morning and Happy Saturday! I thought I would do something not Hallowe'en-y for today's post as I am hoping to do my 13 days of Hallowe'en starting next week, so will have lots more Hallowe'en cards and projects to show you then. So for today's cards I really wanted to use these cute, cheeky raccoons from C.C. Designs chomping on their delicious looking cupcakes!  I found these old patterned papers from SU in my stash and just had to use them, but kept the card fairly simple to show off those lovely looking cupcakes on them!  This card is for A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #146 Anything Goes Creatalicious Challenge #221 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #217 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #568 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 41 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 42 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Raccoons from C.C.
