I See You

I have SO MUCH FUN coloring with Copics! I will admit - when I first bought them, I was intimidated. I needed to learn and really play a lot. Now - I just LOVE it!

The stamp set Peek-a-Boo by Our Craft Lounge is SUPER FUN to color! I colored the image a while ago - and then just thought and thought about what to do with it. Well, I decided to let the image speak for itself. The rest of the card is simple. I did use a Cuttlebug embossing folder to add some texture and interest to the purple cardstock. VOILA!
Hope you have a spook-i-licious day!

Sparkly Spooky Tree

Hi there! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!!

OK - so I went away last weekend and spent some time with my girls - the Scrap Chicks. We had a blast in the beautiful New Hampshire weather! It was New England at its best! There was a LOT of laughter and just general fun!

Well - I decided to pick up and play with the stamp set Spooky Nights by Our Craft Lounge. I LOVE this set - and the tree is just AWESOME!!! It is illustrated by the Fabulous Debbie Corbari. :) So I stamped the tree and glitterfied it with my Eyeliner Black Crafty Sparkles. Oh - HOW PRETTY! And my friend Donna leans over and says "I think you should cut it out now." I laughed - nah - I don't think so.

And then I sat and thought - and thought - and was like "dang - I am taking that as a challenge!" So I set to cutting it out. It took a little while - but WOW - I absolutely LOOOOOOOOOVE the results! LOVE! I only popped a few spots up so that the tree could curl and look "alive".

So there you have it - my fun Halloween Sparkly Spooky Tree!

Happy Sunday!

Spooky Nights!!!

Well hello there! Sorry I've been MIA. The sickies reached our house big time - but we are all on meds and mending.

Halloween is coming - and give it a few weeks and it will be coming on fast and furious! So why not get started playing now?!

I had so much fun making this card! I used the stamp set "Spooky Nights" by Our Craft Lounge. The tree in this set is FANTASTIC!! And the sets of eyes - OMG - SO MUCH FUN! I colored each set of eyes a slightly different color - and then used Ranger Glossy Accents on them.

What are your li'l ones going to "be" for Halloween? We haven't even started thinking about it here - I'd better get on the ball before all the "cool" costumes are gone!

On a more somber note, I just want to take a moment and say that today I am thinking of all those who lost their loved ones or were affected by the tragedy that occurred on this date 8 years ago. I still find it absolutely shocking and truly can't comprehend the level of devastation, nor the desire to do something so terrible. My heart broke that day, as did the hearts of millions of others. I wish healing for everyone.

Have a beautiful weekend.

You Dazzle Me

Hi there! It is a beautiful and sunny day here in Massachusetts! *aaah* I love Fall weather!! :)

Today I am showing you a simple and fun card I made with the stamp set For-bitten by Our Craft Lounge. I thought I would use some of what I am calling the "supporting characters" and putting them in the spotlight!

In order to really play up the sentiment "You Dazzle Me", I decided to use lots of Crafty Sparkles on the hearts. Oh - so fun!

I added some texture by using a Sizzix Texturz plate on the bottom half of the grey cardstock - it is a flourish plate and kind of matches the flourishy oval that surrounds the sentiment.

Hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday!
