FS194: CherylQuilts

I really loved the {sweet pea} card by Cheryl in her gallery, so I decided to make my last Halloween card of the year! It's bittersweet, because I ADORE Halloween! It's one of my favorite holidays! This year, my kids are dressing up as Goth Red Riding Hood (Karen), Hermione Granger (Vicky), Halloween Cheerleader (Bella), Storm Trooper (Xavier), Panda (Sophia), and 50s girl (Genevieve). Love it!

On to the card! The changes from the original - colors, main image shape, theme.

I used a textured cream base, then a fun orange patterned paper (very small polkadots), I used a black nestabilities die cut and stamped on the cream layer! I stamped the web and the spider on the main image, then went over the web with stickles. I used the orange ink with the sentiment on the main image (happy fright night) and black ink on the BOO! sentiment.
I added some black gems to the bottom - and finished it off with a fun ribbon! The main image is adhered with dimensionals!

Hope you have a SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Stamps: Been Boo'd {Papertrey Ink}
Paper: Cream textured, cream, black, patterned paper
Ink: black, orange (PTI)
Misc: ribbon (mayarts), gems, dimensionals, nestabilities, stickles

FS194: LynniePoo

This week's card by Lynette {CAS Christmas} caught my eye. I cased it and made some changes - I added some bling, changed the colors to blues and white and changed the stamp set!

I used the scor-pal to create the score lines and I used the snowflake embossing folder on the darker blue layer. The snowflakes and the sentiment are from Trees with Trimmings. I used enchanted evening ink on the bashful blue paper, and layered it atop the brocade, embossed paper.

stamps: Trees with Trimmings {PTI}
ink: enchanted evenign
paper: white, bashful blue, brocade blue (SU!)
misc: gems (PTI), embossing folder (snowflake)

FS193: imamuttnut

this week's featured stamper card is based on Laurie's {CAS Halloween card}.

Here is my version:

I changed the colors and used a stamp set. Laurie had done her card with punches! I used the Been Boo'd stamp set. This was such a QUICK & Simple card, literally 3 minutes TOPS!

I used a PTI kraft base with a piece of My Minds Eye designer paper. I thought it looked very Halloween-ish. I stamped the ghosts on white cardstock and cut them out. I adhered them to the card with dimensionals. I stamped BOO! from the same set with black ink in the lower corner. I colored the eyes of the ghosts in with copic B000, and the exterior of the ghost with T1.

stamps: Been Boo'd (Papertrey Ink)
ink: black
paper: kraft, white, designer paper (My Minds Eye)
misc: dimensionals, copics

FS192: Jenndspencer

This week's featured stamper is Jenndspencer from SCS. Jenn's card {Quiet Snowfall} really caught my eye, so I decided to case it.

I changed the colors, stamp set and stamped snowflakes instead of using punched snowflakes. In lieu of pearls on the bottom, I used green gems (PTI). I only dry embossed on the lower layer, which in retrospect was quite foolish. YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE IT, LOL!

So here are the deets:

Kraft base, plum layer {dry embossed with snowflakes folder}, spring moss layer, stamped with my Trees with Trimmings set. I used the snowflakes and the star tree with spring moss ink. Fresh snow ink for the snowflakes on the kraft layer and PTI black ink for the sentiment. A few green PTI gems under the sentiment and WHAM BAM, THANK YOU MAM - it's done!
I am not feeling up to par tonight (must be the age - you hit 42....err, I mean 31, and your body protests) {snicker}.

stamps: Tree with Trimmings {PTI}
ink: spring moss, fresh snow, black (PTI)
paper: kraft, plum, spring moss
misc: snowflake embossing folder, PTI green gems

Sneak peek: PTI October

Just a little sneak peek of one item to come this month at Papertrey ink. I created this image, so I thought I would share the sneak peek as well!

Happy WCMD - and my FS191 card.....


I cannot believe that it is October (my favorite month of the year!) This month is full of birthdays (my brother Rich on October 5, my daughter Victoria will be 11 on the 7th, I will be 29 again on the 7th, my daughter Bella is 9 on the 18th, my nephew Liam will be 5 on the 21, my sister Karen will be 30 again on the 22nd, and my daughter Karen will be 13 on the 25th). That does not include my cousin Shannon, my nearly adopted daughter Tasia and a ton of friends who share a Boo-day in October. It finishes off with Halloween - and a Happy Hauntingly good time trick or treating!

So much to squeeze into 31 days!

Today is also World Card Making Day! I stamped and had fun (and didn't mess up my office too bad). This was the card I created for today for the Featured Stamper challenge. This is based on Alison's {inchie anniversary} card. Alison (alimarbles) on SCS has a great style!

I changed the colors and stamp set - loved the layout and the pierced line after the sentiment. I changed it to Halloween colors and used my "Been Boo'd" stamp set, available at Papertrey Ink. This is such a fun, simple card.
Here is a close up of the card!

clean and simple - just a cute little card - love the way that the ghost pokes his head from the side. I colored his eyes with copics, just to give them a hint of color!

stamps: Been Boo'd {Papertrey Ink}
paper: white, plum, new leaf, pumpkin, black (PTI)
ink: black
misc: square punch (one inch), paper piercer
