Pixar Halloween Card

Hello!  I'm so glad you stopped by!  I have my last Halloween card to share with you today.   

All cuts are from Best of Pixar and the papers are all from scraps.

                      I glued the door frame/character side down flat, but pop-dotted the door.  It almost looks like it really is opening out of the card!

I hope you like it.  It's a really cute cut.  Thanks for stopping by!

My Sheri Crafts #97

Hello!  Welcome to my blog and another challenge at My Sheri Crafts! 
Brrrr!  The weather has changed from 80 degrees and sunny to 50 and rainy.  I think it's definately Fall!  And just in time for our challenge #97 - Use Fall Colors and 3 embellishments.  Believe it or not, I made this card for a 40th anniversary!  For these friends, a typical, frilly, glitzy anniversary card just wouldn't do!

I recently bought Spectrum Noir alchohol markers and have been practicing -- this card is my "unveiling"!  My first project using them!  I figured flowers were the best place to start.  :)

This image is from Beccy's Place.  She's got so many digis and they are so cute.  And talk about generous, MANY of them are free!

And a wonderful stamp from Just Rite:
The orange paper is a scrap from my stash, the blue paper has been embossed with a Sizzix folder and I used Tim Holz "Rusty Hinge" distress ink on the yellow and on the inside.

 The ribbon is from The Paper Studio.
I struggled with what color to use on the inside!  This is the 3rd mat I used and finally decided to stick with it.  It looks better in real life than it does here. 

So my 3 embellishments could be the 3 I-Rock gems or it could be Ribbon, Gems and Embossing.  Overall, I really like the way it turned out and for my alcohol marker premier --I think it works!

Be sure to head on over to My Sheri Crafts and check out all the DT inspiration.  I think you're going to love what you see!  Then get your Autumn colors out and join us.  I just love Fall and all the beautiful colors, so I'm anxious to see your creations!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Halloween Step Card

 Hi!  Today I have my second Halloween card I need for grandkids.  I only need 3, so I'm almost there!  Halloween is not really a holiday I celebrate, but my grandkids still like to get cards for it and it's a reason to work in my craft room!  I sure have been having a hard time getting some crafting time lately, so I'm tickled to get another one done.
For this one I chose to make a  side step card.  It took me awhile to recall the dimensions for scoring the folds. All the
papers used are from scraps.

 This super tree cut is from Simply Scarecrows and the sentiment is from Ultimate Creative Sampler.   All other cuts are from Paper Doll Dress Up.  I added some little pieces of twine in the tree to resemble mossy webs hanging down. 

 I added a Jack-O-Lantern die cut from my stash, a few marker accents and there you go!  A fun and easy card to make!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope your week is full of blessings and you see God working this week!

2nd Breast Cancer Awareness Card

OK, here's my second card.  The stamp is from K Andrews.

I cut a doilie in half for the edges and the ribbon is a scrap from my stash.

On the inside I used another 1/2 of a doilie cut in half again for the corners. The mat is preinstalled on the Imagine and inked with pink.

Breast Cancer Support Cards

Hello!  I have just a couple of quick cards I made this afternoon.  Very simple, but pretty. 
The sentiment is computer generated and just add strips of ribbon! The breast cancer ribbon is actually mounted on top of a wider pink polka-dot ribbon. Very CAS, don't you think?

I've tried to show all the shine to this card.  I like pink and white together, so this card really appeals to me.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love it if you left me a comment!  I hope you have a blessed day!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge #96

 Hello again!  I hope you are having a great, Autumn weekend!  I love this time of year!  It's cooler, we finally have had some nice rain and the trees are actually showing some color.  I was so afraid they wouldn't.

But it's time for a new challenge with My Sheri Crafts and we are looking for anything Halloween Related.  I've made my first Halloween card this year for one of my grandkids.  It's also the first project I've made with my Imagine Buccanneer cartridge and the first time I've printed paper!

 The "happy halloween" is from Holiday Cakes, but the "Have A" is from Billionaire and I used my Gypsy to weld the letters and make a shadow cut.

 Isn't he a snazzy pirate with his purple feather?  I cut all the layers and pop-dotted them so he has lots of dimension.

 <-  And the inside.  I hand wrote the "Or You;ll" on the sword.  On both mats I used a distressing tool from Creative Memories, inked the edges with Tim Holz "Rusty Hinge" distress ink, then lightly wet the edges and scrunched it up.

What do you think?  I kind of like it and it was lots of fun to make. Now it's your turn!  I'd love to see your Halloween creations linked up at My Sheri Crafts!  Be sure to check out all the Design Team inspiration and our guest designer's beautiful work!

Football Shaped card

Hi!  I'm so glad you stopped by today!  Well how about some more Football!?!?!?!  It's that time of year and I don't know about your  town, but in my hometown it's a BIG deal! 

I made another card for another one of my Sunday School kids.  He also plays Mighty Mite football and is a huge fan of the sport so it was pretty easy to decide what to make for his card.
  I used my Gypsy to weld two of the shadow cuts of the football on the Sportsmania cartridge.  It's embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and all edges are distressed with Antique Linen distressing ink.

I made the sentiment on my Gypsy using Pooh Font.  I really liked the completed card and hope you do  too.  It was fun to make and I really like the embossing. 

Again, I appreciate that you stopped by and would love to recive a comment!  Hope you have a blessed day!
