Spider Venom

Hi everyone! 
Its Thursday so it is getting close to the weekend! Yay!
So I made this card Tuesday afternoon, but just now posting it. It is a new Halloween card inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch #413. I recently made another card using this elegant little spider and well, I just had to use him/her again!  

The circle diecut and the inverted diecut are from Spellbinders and the rest of the spooky diecuts are from cheery lynn designs. I have had the green patterned paper for years and the green spider ribbon went perfectly to my theme. I fussy cut two more spiders and the title I happened to have bought a couple years ago at the local scrapbooking yard sale. I totally forgot I had them! I better get more organized soon! 

A closer view! Im just loving the green for my cards this Halloween season! 

Here is the awesome sketch! Thx Julee

Have a great day!

Hello, ladies and gents!

I also used some old Bo Bunny ribbons and some 2 keys from Walmart for a $1 dollar. It comes in a little pack of 8 in the crafting department.  The beautiful butterflies are from Bo Bunny that I just bought recently. They are so delicate and I distressed them with Tim Holtz "tea ink"

Chocolate Nutcrackers With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hello again. It's Lisa back with a new Christmas card using several New July Release diecuts from Cheery Lynn Designs. Part of my fabulous and generous package from Cheery Lynn Designs I received a Toy Soldier. It is really very detailed but I wasn't  sure on how I wanted to incorporate it onto a Christmas card? 

Well, I started this 21 day fix this week and of course CHOCOLATE is not part of the diet....So naturally when you don't have something you crave it right? That's how the Chocolate Nutcracker card became my inspiration or is it craving? LOL

This is a 5 x 5 inch card and I just used one piece of white cardstock and one piece of 2 sided patterned paper. The brown was on the back of the teal snowflake paper. I diecut 2 "Toy Soldiers" and placed white cardstock behind them. I diecut one "Snowflake Delight 1" in the center and added several pearls. I diecut the smallest "Believe" and added a pearl to the top of the "I"

I also added a few "Wreath Strip" pieces along the sides of the soldiers. 
Here is my inspiration, "Snickers Nutcracker" that my children still love every Christmas!

Happy Travels!

Just sharing a super quick post of a card that is pretty large,  6 x 8 inches. It is in fact, the largest card that I have made so far. I was asked by a colleague to make a large card for a supervisor who is leaving us...but she asked for it to be big so that many people can sign it.  So I was hoping to find out her favorite color but I didn't have much time. I do know that she loves bike riding and so I have seen this type of theme on pinterest... so here is my version of a goodbye with a cheerful theme. 

The striped paper and swirl paper are from K & Company. I have always thought the swirl paper as water, however I think now it can be used for the wind too. Almost all the diecuts are from Cheery Lynn Designs. Clouds, Balloons, Little Bicycle, Victorian Fence and Grass. The Banner flag is from Spellbinders and I printed up the sentiment on the computer. 

I thought about adding flowers to the basket, but then I like the way it looks without them :)
Strange for me right??? LOL
Thanks for taking a quick peek!
Hope she likes it! 
Have a great day!

Hey There... Love Ya!

Hello again! 
I'm back with another card made for this month's Verve August 2015 Inspiration Challenge. I'm also using a great sketch from Viva La Verve August Week #2. I didn't get the chance to make it during that particular week but I knew I wanted to make it with the heart. The heart stamp I bought so many years ago and I'm sorry I forgot who made it? :( I used papers, the frame and sentiment are all from Lawn Fawn. The pink hearts on the paper were perfect! 

I used Lacey Circles and matching Standard Circles from Spellbinders and added some bling and ribbon on the bottom. The card is so girly and it reminds me of the shabby chic collection by Teresa Collins, Chic Bebe. The black and white patterned paper was bought at Joann super cheap. 

Here is a closer view...The tiny black tag under the sentiment is called Pierced Stackers #4 and can be found at the Cheery Lynn Store. I just love them...hard to see but it has piercings....

Her is the great sketch! Thanks Maureen! 

Here is the inspiration challenge photo....I was planning to use some gold... 
however it got away...

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great evening!

Incy Wincy Spider

Happy Monday! 
Well, I wish it was a happy morning....I was up most of the night with a stomach flu! Just horrible and I was on call...thank goodness the girls there didn't need me to come in! Hugs! However, I was not much for sleeping this morning thinking I could take a nap later...and I decided to check out this week's Mojo Monday # 412. I have been making a lot of Halloween cards and I thought I might as well keep going... Here is my interpretation of the sketch: 

The vintage Halloween paper is from an old collection from Teresa Collins. I bought it a couple years ago at the yard sale at the local scrapbook store. The dripping goo is a Martha Stewart Punch. I stamped some spiders in black and fussy cut them out. The frame is a Recollections stamp, I think? and I just printed out the sentiment from my computer with two different fonts and two different colors. 

The spider web diecut is from Cherry Lynn Designs. I have been asked in the past if I fussy cut them must be a funny joke? right? ! lol

Here is the sketch this week! Thanks Julee!

Have a great day! 
Hugs Lisa
