Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
Yea I know I am 3 months early, but those 3 months will fly by! My son is well above the age of Trick or Treating, but I sure to remember Halloween during my college years...OK let's put that thought out of our mind and get back to crafting.
I am making several Halloween passport cards this year. You know I love making these passport cards, and some of the Halloween images I am working with go great on these cards. So I thought I would share a couple of the cards I have made.

The poison skull is from VectoriaDesigns and I have use it on some of my other Halloween cards I have shared. The set is called Halloween Poison Tags. It was a fantastic choice for the front of my passport cards! 
These tags are perfect for Halloween, They can be used on gift bags as well as cards. 

This next card was made using a fun Halloween set also from VectoriaDesigns called Halloween Kit Junk Journal and it had several pieces to it, great for collage cards and PERFECT for my Passport …

CHF - The Beauty of Nature

Image
It is time for another challenge over at Cornish Heritage Farms.
Steph's challenge for you today is "The Beauty of Nature."
The sentiment I used this month for my card is from the Friend expressions set and was a perfect sentiment for this image. 



I used my distressing inks to create the  background. Very easy and very FAST!

Distress without the Stress!

Image
Did you know I LOVE Vintage? If you follow my work, then you know that is a silly question, being that most of my designs have a vintage flare to them.

Well, I am here today to share with you a vintage inspired greeting card using two of the new releases this month over at So Suzy Stamps! This image is called Vintage Stockings and would be great for all those Vintage inspired Christmas cards.


Now some of you may be intimidated by vintage, or don't know where to start. Well, I am here to share with you some of the things I do to create some of my vintage projects.

Most every image can be worked into a vintage card, of course there are several that may work better than others.  I find that the best vintage cards (for me) are the ones where there is minimal coloring and just a perfect stamped image, like the one I am using today.

All the stamps in the Steampunk section over at So Suzy Stamps are great for Vintage inspired theme cards as well.

Your design always starts with your pape…

Baked with Love - Imagine That

Image
Hi everyone! I am back to share some fun tags I made using one of the new releases this month over atImagine That.

This cute little mouse isBaking Chloefrom theBaking Mice collectionreleased this month. She is so cute and ready to do some baking for the holidays. Every holiday I make up baked goodies for my neighbors. Wouldn't it be fun to attach a cute little tag? I thought it would be, so I made these up to use this Christmas the set came with this fun little image along with some designer paper that I also used and fun sentiments.



But what is fun about this set, is that while it sure can be used for those Christmas goodies, it is perfect for goodies all year round. I love this little critter so much, I decided to make a couple of cards as well.



Now one of them I did turn into a Christmas Card and I used this fun sentiment that I recently got got over at So Suzy StampscalledSweet Christmas.


I also used a cute little spoon image from So Suzy Stamps calledCookie Spoonwhich is so cute …
