13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #13!

  Good morning and Happy Hallowe'en! How are you going to be spending your Hallowe'en? Are you dressing up? We finished our pumpkin carvings yesterday and just need get them ready for tonight now. We'll be spending the day watching lots of scary movies as well.  For my final day in my 13 Days of Hallowe'en, I am sharing the little gift boxes I have made for my work colleagues. I had initially planned to make some  of Lawn Fawn's tiny gift boxes with the bat add on, but they ended up being way tinier than I realised they would be and my treats wouldn't fit inside them, so I had to improvise.  I used the frame from my Make A Card #8 die set from C.C. Designs and then decorated each piece before adding a folded up piece of card between 2 of the frames to make an open topped box, which fitted my Goo Heads treats perfectly. (These are basically Cadbury Creme Eggs in a different wrapper!) The photo shows the front and back of each box. This project is for Creative Fin

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #12 Featuring Evil Fairy from Paper Nest Dolls

Good morning and welcome to my penultimate day of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en feature. For today's card I was very much influenced by the card made by the Paper Nest Dolls DT and bought the same patterned papers to go with this Evil Fairy (or Maleficent) digi stamp.  Unfortunately my printer decided it didn't want to play and wouldn't print the papers out properly at all. Every time I tried to print ones with pink ink the printer jammed and had a major hissy fit. I managed to get a little bit printed out, but think I will print a load more on the big printers at work when I go back next week! So frustrating as my colour cartridge is nearly full too, so it's not that!  Anyway...here's my card. This card is for Allsorts Challenge #648 Add A Sentiment Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 43 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Evil Fairy from Paper Nest Dolls, Happy 31st Sentiments from C.C.Designs Papers: Rich Razzleberry & Basic Black both from Stampin' Up, Ultimate

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #11 Featuring Ginevra from Digi Doodle Studios

Good morning and welcome to Day # 11 of my 13 days of Hallowe'en event! I have used the cute Ginevra from Digi Doodle Studios for today's card which I made using a spiderweb shaped die, that I had forgotten I had! It definitely makes for a fun shaped card, but doesn't leave a lot of room for decorating. I do love how it came out though!  Recipe: Stamps: Ginevra from Digi Doodle Studios, Treats Please from Clearly Besotted Papers: Highland Hyacinth, Basic Black & Cute Hallowe'en DSP all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Highland Heather from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers Accessories: Hallowe'en Ribbon from Groves, Gems from Poundland, Woven With Love Dies from The Paper Boutique Copics Used: Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, R30 Hair - BG05, BG07, BG09 Eyes - G24, G28, 100 Lips - BV04, BV08 Hat - V05, V06, V09, C2, C4, C5, C7, C9, YG05, YG07, YG09, YR04, YR07, YR09 Dress - YG05, YG07, YG09, V04, V06, N5, N7, N9

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #10 Featuring Witch Hat With Bat from Star Jam Lines

Good morning and welcome to Day #10 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en. For today's card, I have used this adorable digi stamp from Star Jam Lines, Witch Hat with Bat. The bat is such a cutie. I went for a fairly simple layout so I could try and show off the bat printed paper in the background, but as always added more than intended so a lot of it ended up being covered up! Typical of me!  Recipe: Stamps: Witch Hat With Bat from Star Jam Lines, Going Batty from Whimsy Stamps Papers: Gorgeous Grape, Basic Black & Cute Hallowe'en DSP all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card form Make It Crafty Inks: Granny Apple Green from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers Accessories: Leaf Doily Dies from Marianne Design, Circle Accordion Card Dies from Die'Sire, Halloween Ribbon from Groves, Halloween Sequins from Amazon Copics Used: Bat - W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, R11, R12 Snake - YG13, YG17, YG67, YG21, YG23 Hat - V12, V15, V17, V09 Hat Band - YR04, YR07, YR09, C9, YG05, YG07, YG

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #9 Featuring Pick of The Patch from Lawn Fawn

  Good morning and welcome to Day #9 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en! Today I am using the adorable Pick of The Patch set from Lawn Fawn along with my new Pumpkin House Dies. I love these cute little squirrels and this card is just perfect for those friends of mine who don't really celebrate Hallowe'en, but to whom I still want to give a card. I went for a 5 x 7 inch card this time to get everything in. These little squirrels certainly are bust with all their pumpkin carving!  This card is for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #508 Anything Goes Crafty Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 43 Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread Challenge #157 Anything Goes Use Your Stuff Challenge #434 Hallowe'en or Pumpkins Recipe: Stamps: Pick of the Patch from Lawn Fawn Papers: Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Bumblebee (Retired), Lemon Lime Twist (Retired), Wild Wasabi (Retired), Gard

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #8 Featuring Miss Anya All Year Kit from The Greeting Farm

  Good morning and welcome to Day #8 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en feature. I am totally loving making all these Hallowe'en cards, but I know I won't need them all! But it's all good fun anyway!  Today's card features the Hallowe'en image from Miss Anya All Year Kit from The Greeting Farm which is a fabulous clear stamp set with one stamp for almost each month. I love these stamps and this one is probably my fave! I decided to make a shaker card this time, which I haven't done in ages. I managed to find some Hallowe'en themed sequins/confetti on Amazon which were perfect for this! And this is the card laying down so you can see the confetti in the shaker a bit better.

13 Days of Hallowe'en day #7 Featuring Tricky Treatzzz by Clearly Besotted

Good morning everyone and welcome to day #7 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en! For today's card I thought I would use my Outside of the Box Level Up die set from MFT which I have been trying to get for absolutely ages. It finally came back in stock and arrived last week, so I had to break it open this weekend! I used my cute Tricky Treatzzz set from Clearly Besotted - I just love these cute sloths in their Hallowe'en designs! Ilove the shape of this card and now need all the other bits to go with it!

13 Days of Hallowe'en Day #6 & Scene It Sunday #66 Featuring Werewolf from Pretty Cute Stamps

  Good morning and welcome to Day #6 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en and my Scene It Sunday post #66! For today's card I thought I would do a more masculine Hallowe'en card - I tend to do witches and more girly themed ones, so this one was a great image for something different.  This cute little werewolf and matching sentiment are from Pretty Cute Stamps, but I printed the sentiment too large for the card really, and then had the idea to tuck it under his paws and it worked brilliantly!  This card is for A Gem of A Challenge #22 Anything Goes Allsorts Challenge Week 647 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #217 Anything Goes Alphabet Challenge O is for Outdoors Crafty Catz Challenge #569 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 42 Anything Goe s Recipe: Stamps: Werewolf from Pretty Cute Stamps Papers: Soft Suede & Early Espresso both from Stampin' Up, Ultimate White Graphic Paper, I Love Halloween Patterned Papers from Echo Park, The Witching Hour Patterned

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.  This card is for Sweet Stampin' Challenge All Hallow's Eve Polkadoodles Challenge Week 43 Anything Goes Creative Moments Challenge #225 Anything Goes Creative Knockouts Challenge #424 Hallowe'en Fun Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Spooky/Hallowe'en 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 Car

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!  This card is for Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #536 Spooky Season Crafty Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 42 Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread C

  Good morning and welcome to Day #3 of my 13 Days of Hallowe'en feature.

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.  This card is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge #693 Anything Goes Through The Purple Haze Challenge #185 Hallowe'en Party Unicorn Challenge #70 Hallowe'en The Fairy and the Unicorn October Challenge Anything Fantasy Goes Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge #10 Anything Goes Digi Doodle Studios Challenge #43 Hallowe'e

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!  This card is for Unicorn Challenge #70 Hallowe'en Crafty Sentiments Design Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 42 Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread Challenge #157 Anything Goes Simon Says Monday Challenge Spooky/Hallowe'en A Bit More Time To Craft EXTRA Challenge Anything Goes 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 Pap

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.
