Happy Halloween Everyone!
The DT Challenge this week has been Halloween Colors! Here's my card to finish off the week of samples for you.
I used the ever so sweet set called "Get Well Soon". Colored the teddy with copics in my Halloween colors and layered onto Basic Grey Fusion DP and orange CS.

On this creation, I used one of my most favorite WoodwareUSA sets (I think I say that about all of my sets, but it's TRUE!) called Mary and Friends. I added a little witch hat (QuickCutz) to Mary's head so she and her friend "Boo" can spook the town Sunday night!
I noticed something as I was making this card. I always seem to add a few more curls to Mary's hair. For some reason, I think a fuller set of hair is easier to color with my copics. What would you do? Keep it the same or add some more?
I hope you have a fun Sunday evening and have some fun stamping too! Remember, If you want to play along in the "Make an Everyday Set HALLOWEENIE" Contest, the deadline is tonight. So post your card on Piali's post HERE and you will have a chance to win a WOODWARE PRIZE!!!
Its Friday...my day again! This week's challenge is Halloween Colors.
We always don't have all the stamps for every ocassion ...I know I don't! Sometimes we don't want to spend on specific holidays/celebrations stamps because we won't get to use them all year long....but we all love to make cards for all of them...like Halloween !
So today I used a non halloween image with few seasonal papers and some supplies from my backyard to make a Halloween card..
Thanks for stopping by..

I stamped the balloon and the sentiment on the card, then stamped the balloon again on a piece of Cream cardstock, after I colored the balloon with my Copic Markers I cut it out and glued it over the balloon on the printed card.

I altered a little 2-1/4" square acetate gift box for my project this week. I'm thinking these would be great little treat holders for the upcoming holidays!
"Penguin Fun" set on white cardstock and coloring with copics. I trimmed it to fit over an oval chipboard piece I had and then glazed over it with UltraThick clear embossing powder. I attached a little beaded chain around the side of the chipboard and added a half-back pearl to his hat. I die cut a scalloped oval for the base out of colored tin that I got from my LSS.
Hope you have been having a great week! Be sure to stop by tomorrow to check out a brand new Woodware USA challenge!

Woodware's Wizardry set was the perfect set for this cute tag. I started out by distressing with Ranger Rusty Hinge distress ink, then "generation" stamped the bubbles from the cauldron around the edges of the tag. After that, I doodled a border, stamped some stars in Ranger Stormy Sky distress ink, added my Copic colored dragon, stamped and doodled the sentiment (You can even hand write a name if you don't want a phrase like I used), popped on some bling and the fun fibers and POOF...It was done!
Make your holiday and party service a hit with little tags like these. Attach the tags to a bendy draw and it's a perfect treat! I think the tall bud "glass" is a unique way to spice up a boring drink presentation too...Give it a try!

It’s Monday, and we have a treat for you!! This week’s challenge for our Woodware USA design team is ANYTHING BUT A CARD (A-B-C)! This really is a challenge for me each time that we do it. I get into the card rut, so I seldom venture out into the world of “other things.” Today, I did!
I have a box that came in a pack of six from Martha Stewart Crafts. It is designed to hold treats (brownies, bars, cookies, etc.), so I decided to jazz it up a bit. I tend to give more treats around the holidays, so I made this for Christmas. I kept the stamping simple, but I loved that I could assemble the phrase “we wish you a Merry Christmas” through stamps in the set called Traditional Christmas Greetings. It is a great all purpose set, and it gives you a large amount of greetings, both religious and secular.
I used a set of paper from My Mind’s Eye called Colorful Christmas, and it is adorable…so glad that I had some left over from last year because this box took up a lot! The box is almost 9 inches square, and the depth is 2 ½ inches. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon from Stampin’ Up.

Here's the final sample of the week for the Faux Stitching challenge! I used "Flower Frames" and "All Through the Year" sets for this card.
I stamped the vine-y frame image from the Flower Frames set but didn't ink up the little flower that's located on the lower right of that frame to leave extra room for my sentiment. I added Primas over the flowers that were part of the frame image and embellished with some faux pearls.
I then stamped the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment from "All Through the Year" inside the frame onto green DP from Basic Grey Capella paper pad.
I off-set another piece of BG Capella DP to the lower left side of the card and used my Signo Uniball white ink pen to add the faux stitching around it.
Next I created a little loop from coordinating papers and attached it with with a white brad.

I had fun playing with the little flowers included in the Mixed Greetings set. I had a piece of leftover Kraft CS sitting on my table and it made a smaller than normal card, so the small scale flowers were perfect! My card base measures 3" x 4.25".

I paper pieced the angel's clothes and I used the SU! Mat pack and a paper piercer to create the holes for my faux cross stitching.

Have you tried out our challenge for this week yet? Today's the last day of our samples for a "Monochromatic Cards" challenge! Haven't the girls done great with this one!!
I used "Owl Greetings" for my card and the "Purple Toes" Inky Links ink to sponge around the edges. I have to say, I am loving these little pads, the colors are unique and similar to chalk ink. Super value from Woodware!!
To get the embossed scallop around my owl image, I first cut out my circle, then I embedded the next smaller sized scallop die into the circle and ran it through my Big Shot using the sandwich recipe to emboss but not cut through the paper. I left the die embedded in the circle and then sponged on the "Purple Toes" ink.
Be sure to come back tomorrow when we introduce a brand new challenge and a whole new week of samples each day!!
