Happy Belated World Card Making Day!

How many cards did you get to create yesterday? I only finished one card. I broke out my Cameo again (I'm vowing to use it more then I have been) and used a studio file from the Silhouette Online Store by Kolette Hall for the base of my card. I also used a cute spider stamp by Inkadinkado from my stamp collection.

Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a great weekend!

A Happy Halloween Card.

This digi stamp was fun to color with a Halloween twist. I used copic markers to color in the girl & butterflies. It's a fairly simple card, quick and easy to make. The girl & butterflies image has pop dots underneath to add dimension.

I really like digi stamps for the ability to print them out in the size of my choice. But, I really love clear and rubber stamps. I love being able to ink up a stamp and stamp it out! I guess you could say I prefer them to the digi stamps.  Which one is your preference? Let me know in the comments below!

Zombie Card.

Hey All!

This step card svg by Lori Whitlock is so versatile and is a great way to show off your stamped images. I used it in yet another card, this time for a zombie card!

The step card svg was cut out with my trusty Cameo. I inked the bone stamp in white ink onto the black cardstock strips. The zombie and word bubble sentiment were stamped in Memento ink and then colored with Copic markers. The green bracket has pop dots underneath to give this card some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Happy October!

It's finally Fall, and today the weather is actually feeling like it. (It was almost 80 degrees the past two days! Unfortunately, weird weather is becoming more common in NJ.)

Anyway, I created this cute Halloween easel card. How cute are these little owls by Doodlebug?

I used the easel card bracket svg by Lori Whitlock, and cut it out with my Cameo.

The October 31st badge is a studio file by Echo Park available in the Silhouette Studio Store. I used a white gel pen to make the little stitches around it.

The 'too cute to spook' stamp is by Studio G.  The owl sticker is by Doodlebug.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy October 1st!

Poison Halloween Card


I created this Halloween card using Bombshell Stamps "Sugar Daddy" stamp set. True story about this card, I made it about 2 months ago when I was in a crafting slump. Not my best card to date, but it helped me get out of my craft rut! 

Ever have one of those days or weeks (or months) where you don't feel creative or your projects aren't coming out right?  How do you get out of a craft rut or slump?

Bombshell Stamps August Hump Day Hop!

Hi All!

Thanks for hopping along with us!  You should have arrived here from Alison's blog. She has chosen the theme "Gilded" (ie: Metallics) for this month's hop!

I created a card with the "Panther Tattoo" set.  I used the Skull and Snake Stamp, as well as the safety pin stamp and embossed them with Silver Metallic Embossing Powder by Zing!

The card base and elements are the Step Card Center Panel by Lori Whitlock and were cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. The black cardstock is by Bazzill and the printed cardstock is from a Halloween 6x6 paper pad, unfortunately I can't recall the manufacturer right now, so I will post it tomorrow evening.

Thanks for hopping by! Your next stop is over to Alaine's blog, to see her awesome project!

Dead Necessities Easel Card

Over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog, Ms. August had issued her challenge earlier this month. See the below link for more info:
-Ms. August, Suzi McKenzie's, Pin-Up Challenge - Easel-y Does It! Create an easel card

I used the Dead Necessities Stamp Set by Bombshell Stamps, my Silhouette Cameo, and a really fun Easel Card by Lori Whitlock (available in the Silhouette Studio Store) to create my take on this challenge.
 I love this key background! So much that it was actually what started this whole card. I chose this paper, and then chose the stamp set and colors from it. The key cardstock is from last year's Halloween 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug.
I covered the coffins with Glossy Accents to make them pop a little more without putting pop dots behind them. The skull and rose however, are a different story. They definitely have pop dots behind them. Lol.

Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a relaxing, if not crafty, weekend!
