Frankenstein & His Bride

Hi!  It's time for another fun challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown
 Our sponsor this week is http://www.doodlepantry.com/     
and our theme is "Halloween Colors"  I

I used the image set "Harvest Bounty" and used the "Tree & Fence" image from the set as a background for some fun little 3D stickers from  that I found in my stash.



I colored "Tree & Fence" with Spectrum Noir markers, cut it out with a Spellbinders die, then inked it with purple and green before adding the stickers.  For the inside, I printed the sentiment from Silhouette Design Studio, then completed it the same as the front.  Simple, but cute!

So please head over to Tuesday Throwdown, check out all the great inspiration and then join us!  See ya there!

An Autumn Bulletin Board

Fall and Spring are my favorite two seasons.  I love the smell of spring and all the green coming back, but I REALLY love Fall!  The fantastic colors, the crisp air, cool evenings.  God really blessed us with a beautiful creation to enjoy!

I work at our church and one of my responsibilities is to collaborate with another secretary and keep our bulletin boards decorated.  This is our Fall board and it's a perfect match for the new challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  Marge hosted this challenge and gave us the theme "Autumn Abundance - Use Fall items that are seen in abundance, like leaves, acorns, fruits, pumpkins, gourds, etc."  Well, I think I've got that covered here!




Isn't that colorful!  I love that tree!  I have to give full credit to Tammy for that part!  The Cricut cartridges used on this project were Disney Classics, Create a Critter and I honestly can't remember what the grass cut is from.  I did that back in the spring, but I've used that cut several times.



 I just love those cute Chip & Dale and Jimminy Cricket cuts!  This was a really fun board!

So, grab some paper and get creating!  Hope to see you over at My Sheri Crafts!

A Cabin Christmas

It's Thursday and that means a new challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday!  We are sponsored this week by

Challenges in our Twisted Thursday group are always Anything Goes with an Optional twist!  This week the twist is "Outdoor Theme".

This time I've used a digi from Robyn's Fetish called "A Cabin In The Woods" and made a very rustic Christmas Card.

I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers, punched it out with a Spellbinders die.  I've distressed it with Tim Holz distress ink and the papers are from My Minds Eye.  The sentiment is a Inkadinkadoo stamp.

What do you think?  It's a very different type of Christmas card than my usual, and I really like it!

So please head over the The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and join in the fun!  You can find a challenge for every day of the week at The Outlawz!


Spectrum Noir markers used:  DG3, DG4, Tan4, Tan5, Tan1, JG3, JG4, IG1, IG2, Ig3, BG1, TB1.

Tuesday Throwdown #216

It's Team A's turn to post at Tuesday Throwdown and we are sponsored by  
  with the theme "Button Up!"   I used RF image "Daisy Days" to make a "Thinking of You" card:

I've had this ribbon for  couple of years and I think I've used it once before!  The stamp is one I bought at a yard sale at least 4 years ago and it doesn't even have a name on it.  Other than that I've used Spectrum Noir markers, a Spellbinders die and buttons from my Mom's button stash.

Please check out all the DT inspiration over at Tuesday Throwdown and I hope you'll join us!

First Post with The Outlawz!

 WooHoo!  It's finally time for my First Post with The Outlaws Twisted Thursday challenge!!

We are sponsored this week by
 

Challenges in our Twisted Thursday group are always Anything Goes with an Optional twist!  This week the twist is "Taking A Ride".

Lee generously gave us this cute digi to work with and here's what I made:


The background cut is from Cricut's Paper Lace cartridge. And the image and sentiment are on Spellbinders cuts.  The "Hi" are little letter stamps from The Paper Studio.



I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.  Just for fun, I colored the bike just like the one had as a kid, but mine had a banana seat!.  Do you remember those?  Mine was sparkly purple!  :o)

This stamp is from Stampendous.  This was a really fun card to make and I like the bright, happy colors!

I'd love to have you join our group at The Outlawz! You do have to become a member to join in the challenges, but it's free and you get welcomed by the designers!  There are new challenges every day of the week and lots of great sponsors and prizes.  Come join in the fun!

Gazebo Wedding

Welcome Bloggies!  It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and Sheri has challenged us to "Use any Style of Bunting or Banners".  This was a fun challenge and led to a fun card.  I  have an order for a couple of wedding cards and this challenge theme was perfect to get me working on them.  Here's my first card for the order:






Inside I used a "Congratulation" stamp.  The Cricut cartridges I used were: Wedding, Garden Soup, Indie Art and Christmas Seasonal.  The wedding colors were dark navy and Fall colors.  That's why the silhouette couple is brown.  The bows are a little more orange than they show here so with the red hearts, green writing and the inside stamp is green also, I think I got all the Fall colors represented in the card!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll check out all the other great Banner & Bunting inspiration of the rest of the team, then join us!
