Deathly Delights

Happy Halloween! 
Today, I wanted to share with you a new card I made yesterday one the using Graphic 45 papers and
inspired by Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 382. Originally, I had planned on making a cupcake but then I had all these fun papers and decided to go that way. The cupcake has fun eyeballs, so I added the on he ends of the swirls and also on the skull. 

The plaid ribbon bow is a triple bow with a green rose in the center. I have had these green roses from Michael's. Perfect for Halloween! 

A closer view....

Fun wiggly eyes.....

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the drippings and placed a few cards on the inside for a gift card and sentiment. 

Here is the fun inspiration! Thank you! 

Have a great Halloween! 
Be safe and have fun!

Boo to You!

Hi Happy Friday! 
Yesterday, I was in my craft room making some new cards for Cheery Lynn Designs for upcoming posts and a new release. However, first I wanted to make a card for this week's Mojo Monday #471. I used the "boo to you" stamped ghosts and the adorable sentiment with "everything nice" pumpkins.

The halloween paper I recently bought at Michaels for 60% off! YAY! 
The spiderweb die and fishtail banners are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I pierced the white square and added pop dots behind the pumpkins.

Fun sketch! Thank you! 

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Halloween With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Welcome back to another Halloween card for Cheery Lynn Designs
I was on a super roll making cards earlier in the month and it has been slowing down a bit since my daughter's wedding is just around the corner! Busy busy busy! 
Meanwhile, I was stumped on what I was planning to make? I knew I wanted to make flowers using the "black eyed susan strip" The centers of the flowers are gorgeous! 

The "cuties 3" I placed on the top and the bottom of the card. Reminds me of a ribbon. I stamped the sentiment on the "horizon fishtail banner" I do have to say it is one of my favorite go to die cuts. The "spiderweb" is in the background and the spiders are from "spider nest" Lastly, I added the cat from "witch's brew"  I just love the cat....meow!

Thanks A Latte

Hi Happy Sunday! 
Today, Im back sharing a card inspired by this week's October Viva La Verve sketch and the October color inspiration challenge at Verve. The coffee/latte are both part of the new release over at Verve stamps called Everything Nice. The die cut Thanks is part of the Autumn Thanks. This month colors for October at the Verve Blog are quite bright and cheerful. I personally think of spring/summer. Here is AZ it is soon hot outside that is when I spend more time in my scrap room....LOL

The die cut flowers are from Cheery Lynn Designs called Black Eyes Susan Strip. I really love the centers of the flowers. I added some black bling and some ric rac ribbon. 

A closer view ....the tiny "a latte" is printed from the computer and I chalked the edges.

Here is the fun sketch! Thank you Lesley!

The inspirational colors....

Verve Stamps "Retrospective" Blog Hop

Welcome to Verve's October Release Retrospective Blog Hop!  Today the Verve Divas and Guest Divas are back with another dose of inspiration using the brand new release! All of our new products are available to order in the Verve shop and on sale through the end of October! Plus, we've got a sweet hop prize in store!

 Hi! Welcome back! I had to make another card using the beautiful "Everything Nice" stamp set and the matching "Pumpkin Spice" die cut set. It is almost Halloween and lots of pumpkin tasting foods and drinks. Yum!! So naturally I used orange for the color palate. I stamped the pumpkins in orange ink and decided to add some lace, pearls and flowers to match. 

Here is the stamps and matching pumpkin die cuts. 

 The orange paper I embossed with my cuttlebug. The patterned paper is from DCWV "Spookytime"
Bought these tiny envelopes a long time ago, so I thought it needed some other layer....since that is my kind of style.

Christmas Gatefold With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi! Welcome back to another card for Cheery Lynn Designs!This week we are featuring all Christmas cards....enjoy! 
I wanted to make a card with doors, so I used the "Screen Door With Dog" I reversed the dog and door for the opposite side by flipping over the cardstock. There are magnets between the papers so you can close the doors or keep them open. 

The sentiment is from "Winter Holiday Word". The "Wreath Strip" was cut a couple times and layered throughout the door with tiny red pearls. I also added them to the dogs' collar. 

Inside I used the "lace christmas tree" I did cut the bottom off a tad so it fit in the gatefold. 

Here is one side...
The snow is liquid appliqué in white. 

Here is the other side....

Abundant Blessings With Cheery Lynn Designs

Hello again! Two Saturday's in a row for me! I hope everyone is having a great day! 
I've been busy crafting away in my scrap room. Getting all kinds of ideas for the upcoming holiday season. Today, Im sharing this autumn card for Cheery Lynn Designs using their beautiful detailed "fall leaves" set. I used the largest leaf multiple times in orange and yellow cardstock. 

I placed my favorite "french pastry doily" in the background and stamped the sentiment from verve stamps on the "horizon fishtail banner"  The "floral bouquet kit" I die cut in kraft and used a yellow topic marker on the tips. It gave it a different darker color to match the patterned paper in the background. Lastly, I added a bow in the center. I sure do love my bow maker!

Grateful For You

Today, I wanted to share another card using the new stamps again from Verve called Autumn Blessings. This card as made to give a big Thank You to Julee Tilman for picking me this month to be part of her new release. Thank you so much! 

The beautiful feather flowers I stamped and embossed in white. The sentiment is from last year's Verve stamps called Bountiful Harvest. I stamped it in brown ink and fussy cut it out. I also made the stamped kraft paper using an old retired stamp from Heartfelt Creations. 

The leaves, doily and the colorful brown and orange accents are from Cheery Lynn Designs. 
Flourish #14, French Pastry Doily and Floral Bouquet Kit. I sure seem to have been using the floral kit quite a bit lately.
