Hallowe'en, Christmas and a random!

I promise these are the very very last Hallowe'en cards I've done and they have now all been posted and will have all hopefully arrived in time for Hallowe'en tomorrow!

This first one is for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #22 to Use 3 design papers, 2 embellishments and 1 ribbon on your card. I also used old Mojo #54 for the layout.


Stamps: House of Haunts

Papers: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White, Cast-A-Spell DSp (retired)

Inks: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Perfect Plum

Accessories: Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon, Buttons from Papermania, Bat Brad from Making Memories, Scallop Edge Punch

My very last Hallowe'en card is for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge #25 to use buttons - although I only used one button, it was quite a large one! I also used Mojo #51 for the layout as well.


Stamps: Friendship Jar Fall Fillers

Papers: Basic Black from SU, Orange Zest, Stamper Select White, Halloween Prints all from PTI

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch from SU, Orange Zest ribbon, True Black buttons both from PTI

My next card is a Christmas one using one of my new sets and matching punches! This one is for Color Throwdown's challenge #116 to use Riding Hood Red, Vanilla and Certainly Celery, for Free For All #34 to make a Christmas card without using white (I guess I'm stretching it a bit there!), Mojo #76,  Papertake Weekly's Bright and Sparkly challenge and finally the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #27 to use shimmer paints. I don't think you can see particularly well in the photo but I did spray all 3 baubles with my Vanilla Smooch Spritz and they do shimmer quite nicely (they also make the ink run as you can see on the Riding Hood Red one!).


Stamps: Delightful Decorations from SU

Papers: Certainly Celery, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla

Inks: Certainly Celery, Riding Hood Red

Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Riding Hood Red ribbon, Silver Cord, Ornament Punch, Silver gems from Papermania, Snowflakes Embossing Folder

And my final card for today is for the In Love With Stamping Colour challenge for October to use red, white and black and for Paper Pal Arts #66 for the sketch. I just had to try out another of my new sets and used the rock 'n' roll technique which is one I very rarely use, but I do think it looks stunning on this one!


Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Because I Care

Papers: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Love Letter DSP

Inks: Riding Hodd Red, Basic Black

Accessories: Whisper White satin ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Circle Nestabilities, Black Diamond Stickles

And that's all for me today folks. Thanks for stopping by!
