Halloween Card Challenge

Hi guys!

Me again. You are shocked, right? 😉 Got one last entry into the Halloween Card Challenge with Ashley, seeing that Halloween is tomorrow and all.

Rather than being stampy, I went just plain old paper crafty today by whipping out some paper from Bella Blvd. The bright colors of Bella? Yeah. I’m so there.

I embellished the little spider guy (cut one from big old piece of 12 x 12 paper) by adding a couple wiggle eyes and the twine. And then I added some enamel dots and the little enamel heart sticker under the spider. Just kind of a fun thing to do.

Pretty simple but effective in the cute department.

Alrighty! That’s what I have today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog-a-roo to see her take on the challenge. A3030nd we’ll be back at the challenge game again next week too so come back for that too. I’d be… like… sad and stuff if you didn’t. 😉

Halloween Card Challenge

Hi kids!

Another day of Halloween Card Challenge fun with Ashley. If you are just tuning in, we’ve been challenging each other to make a card a week… FOR FUN! Yeah, fun!

This week’s card is … well… this week’s card.

Made this guy with a small Tim Holtz Halloween stamp set I picked at Michaels the other day on impulse (not going to sugar coat it) for a whopping $5 on sale. Woot. Not my norm with style these days, but sometimes you gotta mix it up. You get me? 😉

I misplaced my Old Paper Distress ink and was too dang lazy to look for it so I used a light khaki ink to stamp the pumpkin once onto watercolor paper. I grabbed my trusty Clean Color pens and added some color. Spread the color with water so… you know… I seem all artsy like. I let the color dry and then stamped on top with a nice coat of black ink.

You know, I think it turned out OK. Oh, you might be wondering about that patterned paper behind it? It’s from My Favorite Things. They have a kick booty selection of 6×6 paper pads. You should check it out.

Alright. That’s what I have for you.

Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge today.

Halloween Card Challenge

Hi guys!

Back again with another card to share! Ashley and I decided to change up our challenge for the next few weeks into a Halloween Card Challenge. So this is my first take on the new challenge.

This card is pretty much all Lawn Fawn, all the time. 😉 I saw the new Happy Howloween set and had to have it. So. Darn. Cute. And the challenge somewhat justified my having to have it. Hee hee.

I was totally cheapo though and didn’t get the coordinating dies. (Heehee. Yes, I believe in honesty in blogging and paper crafting.)  So instead, I relied on my old friend, my trusty scissors to cut out the hat, mask and other accessories for the cute doggies. Fussy cutting? Sure it took me a little longer but still did the trick.

To make the noses pop, I used some Ebony Black Novo Crystal Drops. Word to wise if you haven’t used them before: A little bit of droppage goes a longgggg way. You don’t need a lot at all.

Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog for her take on the challenge this week. I’m sure it will be rad-to-the-add.

See you again soon, friends.
