Halloween Llama Card

I'm enjoying a rainy day in my craft room making Halloween cards.  :)  I was in Michael's last week and fell in love with a cute Halloween stamp set which had llamas.  It begged to come home with me and I was happy to oblige.  I used the Foil Quill free hand to create the gold foiled pattern and ran it through a laminator.  I used a metallic gold pen to do the dots at the top and bottom (plus on sentiment).  The glittered bat and wooden jack 'o lantern are by Recollections.  This Halloween llama wants to play at:





Thanks for taking time to visit.  I'm off to make spaghetti for our supper....that's what rainy days call for.  ;)  As always....stay crafty (and watch out for those three legged creepy llamas).  :)


Hocus Pocus Witch and Coffee Card

We are having rainy weather today and it is the first time in weeks and weeks. I know our grass, shrubs and trees are celebrating.  :)  I decided to celebrate too in my craft room making cards.  :)  I've started making my Halloween cards to mail to friends and neighbors.  This is a quick card I put together with Pink Paislee patterned papers and ephemera from their Spellcast Collection.  The heat embossed stamped image/sentiment is by Joy Clair Stamps (Creeping It Real).  The swirled pumpkin is a sticker by Jolee's Boutique.  I added Halloween colored twine by Maya Road as the finishing touch.  This coffee drinking witch is joining in at:







Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty (enjoy those rainy days)!!!  :)

Frankly Awesome Halloween Card


I was in the mood to make a Halloween card before I left my craft room.  I like to mail Halloween cards to friends and neighbors.  What better time to make one when still celebrating World Card Making Day.  :)  I used my Foil Quill and gold fold to do the frame around the patterned paper and stamped sentiment (Joy Clair Stamps Creeping It Real).  The die cut was done with my Silhouette Cameo (#67843 Frankenstein Silhouette) and black cardstock.  I also stenciled the word "beware" with Distress Oxide ink on white cardstock.  I cut a stencil using the Silhouette Cameo and this stencil pattern (#32431 Stencil Caution Signs).  For a fun finishing touch, I added a glittered spider sticker (Recollections).  Frankie is going to be walking by these challenges:






I guess I need to get out of my crafting comfortable clothes and get dressed.  Hubby has offered to take us out for dinner so I wouldn't have to cook.  I certainly wasn't going to argue with that!  :)  Thanks for taking time to visit.  Remember to stay crafty this week.  :)




Foiled Trees Christmas Card

I'm still celebrating World Card Making Day.  :)  Recently I played with Deco Foil Transfer Gel and some of my stencils.  The Christmas tree background shown here is one of my results.  I used Newton's Nook Evergreen stencil with the Deco Foil Transfer Gel.  After letting it completely dry, I used iCraft Deco Foil in  Spring Green and my laminator for the finished results.  I wish you could see it in person.  It has depth and is so pretty and shiny.  :)  My image and sentiment are by Joy Clair Stamps (Cozy Snowman Wishes).  The oval die cuts are Sizzix Framelits Dotted Ovals.  The stamped image was colored with alcohol markers.  I adhered sparkly snowflakes for the final touch plus added some Stickles to the snowman image.  This snowman is going to drop by:







Hope your weekend has been a crafty celebrating World Card Making kind.  :)  Thanks for stopping by and I'm heading back to my craft room where I see another card in my future.  :)

Birthday Wishes Card

I'm still in my craft room celebrating World Card Maker's Day.  :)  Pink Fresh Studio has fun challenges going on during the card maker's dream holiday.  :)  One of their challenges is "Favorite Technique."  One of my favorite techniques is to put Distress Oxide ink pads on glass, spritz with water and drag an old credit card through the ink,  Next smear it on cardstock.  This is a fun way to create a quick and pretty background.  I used stamps by Pink Fresh Studio (possibly retired).  I'll be adding this card to my birthday stash since I never seem to have enough.  :)  I'm linking this one up at:






All for now....who knowsI might head back to my craft room before the day is over.  :)   Remember to get crafty....it is is our holiday.  Happy World Card Maker's Day!!!!!!  :)

Peaceful Maple Card

I hope you are having a crafty World Card Making Day.  There are lots of good sales and fun challenges, etc. to check out.  One of them is Kat Scrapinness (sale plus challenges).   My youngest and I attended our town's fall festival this morning which was fun.  I came home and put on my comfortable crafting clothes and headed for the "crafty cave" to celebrate my favorite holiday.  :)  I cut out a maple leaf tag from watercolor paper.  I colored it with a watercolou r technique of spritzing Distress Oxide ink pads and "smooshing" the tag into them.  The die cut design (#223926 Rounded Rectangle Maple from the Silhouette Design Store) has two other layers which I cut from black cardstock and then kraft cardstock.  I used a Tim Holtz (Sizzix) embossing folder and orange cardstock  to do two narrow strips.  The stamped sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  The waxed orange hemp is by Ken Oliver (found a few months ago at Tuesday Morning's).  Definitely CAS and especially enjoyable on this beautiful fall World Card Making Day.  :)  This leaf is going to be falling by:





Today is going to be the last day in the 90's here and the temperatures are supposed to be more like autumn.  I'm definitely looking forward to cooler weather.  I'll close because I want to head back upstairs to my craft room and make more cards.  After all it is not everyday I get to make them on a "Card Maker's Holiday."  ;)
As always, stay crafty!!!!!

Autumn Greetings Feather Card

I put myself in high gear this morning getting all my "chores" done so I could have card therapy time.  :)  It was the first time this week and much needed!!!!  ;)  There is a new CASology challenge of  "feather" and I couldn't wait to create for it!  I started by cutting a feather die cut with my Silhouette Design Store (#40563 Floating Feather) out of white cardstock.  I cut the negative of this die cut into A7 card size.  I stamped  on a white cardstock panel which would go behind the feather card base to create the scene.  I used a set I've had a few years by Inky Antics (#11196MC Autumn Fields).  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I stamped a sentiment to the upper right of the feather die cut piece.  I used a few yellow and orange sequins for the finishing touch.  I'm going go link this card up at:






Thanks for dropping by and checking out my latest "card therapy."  :)  As always remember to stay crafty!  :)
