BOO!

Hi everyone!  I wanted to make some halloween cards and this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch made for the perfect sketch for the stamps I wanted to use!  I pulled out an old set from Our Craft Lounge, Ghostly Greetings.  I can't part with this set, it is too cute!  I used the Boo from my Gina K Designs set, Wicket.  Because there is a star below the exclamation point, I added a few star sequins along the side to bring it all together.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by!

Bokeh De Boppitty Boo

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for a few challenges, this weeks CASology challenge, the cue card is Home and this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. Kelli Jo is today's host for the Splitcoast Hope You Can Cling To Challenge, Bokeh De Boppitty Boo.  She would like us to make a cared using the Bokeh technique.  This is a technique I hadn't heard of and haven't tried but on my second attempt I had a lot of fun with it!  I'm not always good with techniques and it usually takes me several tries but not this one!  I used the sentiment from my Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalow set and the mushroom house from my Fanciful Fall set.  I love coloring this mushroom and thought the blue went really well with the gray I used.  This weeks theme for the Sparks challenge is:
It was perfect for the other 2 challenges!  :)
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Resist, being resilient, shining through, coming out on top!


Hi everyone!  Today's card is for Robin's Resist, being resilient, shining through, coming out on top! Hope You Can Cling To challenge.  I tried a new to me technique, Crayon Rubbed Embossed and it was a lot of fun!  I didn't use my brayer to apply the ink, I just rubbed the ink pad over the cardstock and I like how it came out and it was a lot of fun!  Hubs picked out the sentiment from my Paper Smooches Sentiment sampler set.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Tissue? I hardly even know you!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for Debbi's Hope You Can Cling To challenge, Tissue?  I hardly even know you!  This was fun and I technique I haven't used in quite some time, the Faux Silk technique!  She gives a couple others we could try but since it had been so long I went with Faux Silk.  I stamped by Gingham stamp from My Favorite Things on tissue paper, attached to piece of cardstock and then stamped my sentiment from my Eye Charts set, love this set, so fun!  I added a few wood dots to finish the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Show me the Love

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for Stacy's Show me the Love Hope You Can Cling To challenge on SCS.  She would like us to make a card showing love but not the word.  I had this super cute image Meant to Be from Lili of the Valley colored for a bit and knew it would be perfect for her challenge!  The image panel is up on pop dots, the white below it was run through my Big Shot with my cloud impression plate, I added enamel dots on their eyes and a bow finished off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
