Halloween Card Series 2017 - Card #1

     Its the beginning of my Halloween Series and the excitement is real.  The MFT Fab-Boo-ious Friends Stamp Set had such cute images that I had to used them in my first card.  Mama Elephant's Grid Window Die added that extra look.  Finishing with some wiggle eyes and the Lawn fawn Happy Happy Happy Stamp Set completed everything.

Clean & Simple Genius

      The Clean and Simple Genius category for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar contest  was right up my alley.  Simple is always good when you need a fast card.   
      I used the MFT Abstract Cover-Up Die-namics with a piece of masking paper to create a stencil.  Then the masking stencil was used with Koi Water Color to create a colorful background.  The MFT Because You Stamp and Die-namics Set was used for the sentiments for the outside and inside of the card.
Hope you like.

Abstract Cover-Up is no longer available, however the following are can be used.

Halloween Card Series 2016  Card #1
     Yay!!!!! Halloween series has started.  Bring out your witches  scarecrows, and zombies and lets get to spooking. 
  So delighted to start my halloween cards for 2016.  The 'Halloween Cuties' stamp set was perfect to begin the series.  All the images were stamp using the black licorice ink from MFTStamps and colored using Copic Markers.  The Pumpkins Die set played a major part in the card background, while a couple stamps from Michaels, the spider web die set from Impression Obsession, and glossy accents added the finishing touches.
Thanks for watching.  Hope you like the card.

Clearly Besotted Friendship Card

     Friendship is the theme for today's card.  I started with a vase purchased at Marshalls.  The colors in the vase is what captured my attention so I knew I wanted to create a background like it.  The Brusho Crystal Colours were used in creating the background.  They are watercolors in powder form.  All you do is add water.  The colors are very vibrant and beautiful.
     The main image was taken from the 'Best Friends' stamp set from Clearly Besotted.  The Jumbo Peek-A-Boo Dye set was used to finish the card with some fun foam and sweet sentiments from the Best Friends stamp set.
     Hope you like the card and video.

Clearly Besotted | Thank You Card 

     For today's Throwback Thursday card I started with Quickutz squeeze tool.  It can be used a embosser or die cutter.  I have mine for many years and still use it.  I used the squeeze tool to cut out a sun for my scene.  The Vegetable Patch and Got Your Back stamp sets from Clearly Besotted were used as the main images on the card.  Some beautiful ink pads from Mama Elephant finished off everything nicely.
