Witches Brew

I’m so excited over DRS designs new Halloween stamps. Go over to DRS designs and check all of them out.

For my card I used the Witches Brew Halloween Greeting ,Burning Cauldron
and Accent Bats.

On the green card I added a band all the way around the card with Black glitter embossing powder. On lt. brown card I stamped the Accent Bats with tuxedo black ink and tore the edges then I sponged Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Using the Spellbinder Book die I cut out a Lt. brown for the book back and sponged Walnut Stain all around the edge. I cut 3 pages for cream card and sponged the edges. The Witches Brew Halloween Greeting was stamped on the left side and the Burning Cauldron was stamped on the right. The cauldron was colored with Copic markers. Stickles were added to the flames and steam.
I wrinkled the pages so then would have some depth. 

Have a wonderful day,

The leaves are changing

Hello everyone. I’m enjoying our beautiful fall weather. And that inspired my card today.

I used the Medium Silhouette Leaf  stamp and Twinkling H20’s painted on the stamp to create the background. This was layered onto copper card and then a cream card. I stamped Changing Leaves Thanksgiving Greeting onto cream card stock and painted Twinkling H20’s over the top of the stamped image and layered it with the copper card. I stamped the leaf two more times and cut it out. They were attached with foam dot’s.

Have a wonderful day,

Flat Backed Treat Box

Good morning everyone. Fall has arrived in the north Georgia Mountains, the leaves are changing and the nights are cool. I have been thinking a lot about when my children were young, and we would have family hay rides and roast hot dogs and marshmallow over a fire. We had so much fun.

When I saw this little treat box over on Splitcoast I new that I had to give it a try. You can find the directions here. The stamps that I used were Argyle Background, Argyle Diamond, and Toasting marshmallow. I stamped the Argyle Background in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on cream card stock. And used the Argyle Diamond and Peeled Paint Distress Ink and Rich Coco Memento ink to add the color These were cut out and layered on to brown card. Using Tuxedo Black ink and the Toasting Marshmallow  was stamped and colored with copic markers and cut out with scissors. A little Stickles was added to the fire and Glossy Accents were added to the marshmallow. Foam tape was used to attach the marshmallow to the box front.

Have a wonderful day,
