Trick or Treat

Just a little more than a week and Halloween will be here!

So it's the perfect time to share this fun card that I made using House Mouse Designs, Mouse Costumes image from Stampendous.

I colored the image with my Prisma colored pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.

Then sentiment is from the Tricky Words perfectly clear stamp set.

I hope you and your kiddos are enjoying the fall season and all the fun that comes with it!

Swinging Birthday

I have another BIG card to share with you today!

This is another 5 x 7 card That I made for one of the ladies at work for her birthday last week.

I used High Hopes image, Lil' Swinger.

The sentiment is from Stampendous.

The flowers are from my stash.  I think they are recollections from Michaels.

When I first started making 5 x 7 cards I found them a little intimidating because there was so much surface to cover.  But now I am having a lot of fun because I can use so many layers!

Happy Holidays

Happy Wednesday!

I have another Christmas Card to share today.  I's not even Halloween yet...but I have a lot of cards to make in the next few months.

I used the Stockings4christmas set for the front.

The best part of the card is the inside, where I used the new Sizzix Happy Holiday drop in dies.

Here is a closer look at the inside.

There are so many awesome drop in's that you will want to collect them all!

Check out all the samples in the gallery!

Wishing you Sparkle and Cheer

Made a sparkly Christmas card with a fun new sentiment from High Hopes Stamps.

This is called Sparkle and Cheer.

I used a Spellbinders Die to die cut all the layers.
All of the paper is The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.
The holly stickers are Jolee's.

This would be an easy card to mass produce.
It was super easy to make!

I hope you enjoyed today's card.

Birthday Selfie

I am not exactly sure how it happened but somehow I have become the official office birthday card maker at work!

It's been a challenge because we have over 20 people in our department so I need to make big cards so there is room for everyone to sign!

This is one I made recently for one of the ladies birthdays.  
It measures 5 x 7 and she loved it!

The image is Sally Takes a Selfie from High Hopes Stamps.

I colored her with Prisma Colored pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.

The paper is The Paper Studio Uptown Flair Paper Pack from Hobby Lobby.

I'll share some of the other cards I've made for work next week!
