Happy Fall

Happy Wednesday and Happy Fall.  It's my turn to host the Crafty Creations Challenges this month.  This is my first time to host and I am having so much fun.  For my card I have chosen this cute little image from Bugaboo, which happens to be our sponsor for Challenge #352.  You can find The Happy Fall Trio here.

I stamped the image and then colored it up with my Copic Markers.  I simply love my Copics.  It is my favorite coloring medium.  

I cut a piece of yellow card stock to the size of an A2 card, ran it through my machine using an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers.  Then I layered the colored piece on top of the yellow piece.  Finally I adorned the card with several leave sprigs that was cut in about 3 different shades of card stock.

Thanks for joining me today.  I hope you have enjoyed my card and that I was able to inspire you.  Please remember to hop on over to Crafty Creations Challenges and join-in on our challenge we have going on.

An Owl's Halloween

Hi there, Kathy here and it's my Tuesday to share a card with you.  For my card, I decided on another Halloween image.  This one is from Whipper Snapper Stamps.  It is called Broomstick Owls.  I have always loved all the owl stamps out there but have never bought any of them.  When I seen these cute little owls I could not resist.

I stamped the image and colored it up with my Copics.  I then cut it out and adhered it to a circle that I cut using a circle die.  I stamped the sentiment, which is from My Favorite Things on another circle die cut.  

I used a white side fold card base, put a green layer and then layered with a yellow and purple piece that I ran through an embossing folder from Taylored  Expressions.  The bats are made using a die from My Favorite Things.

I used the Craft-Dee BowZ tool kit to make my bow.  I love how this bow turned out.  I think it is the best bow I have made so far and it was so easy with the bow maker.

I hope I have inspired you and we look forward in having you join us with our monthly Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow Challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ.  We can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by,

Halloween Kitty

I have a card to share with you today for the Craft-Dee BowZ October Anything Goes Challenge.  Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo.

Of course for the month of October I had to create a Halloween card.  The image I used was created using the Halloween Kitty image. There's just something about Halloween that Screams Black Kitties.


I colored my image using various Copic markers and fussy cut it out. The sentiment and lamp post are both from a retired Halloween Set from My Favorite Things.

The Card Stock and ribbon is from my stash.  

The bow was made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.  If you haven't picked up your bow maker, go on over and grab one.  You will never regret your purchase.  And remember to hop on over to the Craft-Dee BowZ blog and enter a card for our Anything Goes with a Handmade bow challenge this month.

Thanks for stopping by.  I do hope I have inspired you today.  If you have never looked at any of the Bugaboo images be sure to check them out.  They have some really nice images.
