LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration post featuring Sabrina

Good morning and welcome to my monthly inspiration post for LeAnn's World 101. This month I picked the gorgeous Sabrina for my card to add to my Hallowe'en card stash! I made her into a fairly wide image, so that I could add her to a DL sized card, but boy did that sky take a while do! 

I kept the rest of the card fairly simple and added a few die cut bats and cats (the cats were needed to fit in with the sentiment, which is one of my faves to use for Hallowe'en cards!).

Scene It Sunday #17 Featuring Let's Go Nuts from Lawn Fawn

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. I thought I would use my new Lawn Fawn goodies for this week's card. I love squirrels so this stamp set jumped straight into my basket on release day! And I just had to have the cute Acorn House die and the Lift The Flap Trees too, but I forgot to get the Big Acorn stamp set, so that will go on next month's order!

I made a DL sized card for this one to get everything in and used the Lift The Flap trees die twice, but cut the frame off it to make it more like the trees were in the woods. I also used the new Into The Woods patterned papers for the sky. 

This is the card with the flaps closed...


And this is with the flaps open, so you can see the cute squirrels hiding inside!

Something Else on Saturday #73 Featuring Madame Mirlande from Sweet November Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. You can probably tell, but I'm starting to get right into Hallowe'en colouring mode now! I love all the creepy, but fun images, and just had to colour this one when I saw Amy Young's version of her. The background was totally taken from Amy's card (hope she doesn't mind a bit of obvious inspiration here!). I just loved all the swirls of magic around our beautiful voodoo priestess (but Amy's were better!)

I have never done a background like this before and I really enjoyed doing it, even though I didn't have a clue what I was doing :P

Scene it Sunday #14 Featuring Birthday Party and Birthday Boys from The Greeting Farm

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post! The Greeting Farm brought out some more of their fabulous scene building digi stamps again last month, so again, I had to add them to my catalogue! I used the Birthday Boys this time, to add yet another boy card to my stash!

I made almost a slimline sized card - it was supposed to be a DL sized card, but was slightly too short to fit, so I made my own card base to fit the image instead! I wanted the scene to look like the birthday boy was receiving all his presents but couldn't add another character in there without it being too full - it is full enough as it is! I love layering all the different elements but I do get carried away sometimes LOL

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. Not sure if you have seen but Rachelle Anne Miller has recently released lots of stamps in digital format now, so I just had to buy a few!
