Haunted Mansion Card in a Box

The Card in a Box has become one of my favorite type of cards to  make and this one was no exception.  I used a Martha Stewart set of stickers and some paper scraps and stickers from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection.  I like how is all came together, so it's a card...it's a decoration!  And, the moon glows in the dark!  Are you working on any Halloween projects?  Thanks for stopping by!   Marie

Happy Fall Card

So, I am really proud of this card.  I sat down to create a pumpkin card for a swap that needed to go in the mail ASAP.  I had no plan.  I found the gate cut card in my stash of card pieces...it is from a kit from several years ago that I never completed from a class.  After adding some ink for depth and a lighter piece for the inside, I made my pumpkin from handmade orange paper.  I just cut three ovals, inked and layered them.  I then added some paper vines and punched leaves.  I scrounged through all my sticker sot find a sentiment...no luck.  I then looked through all my stamps...nothing. So, I made my little sign to "hang" on the fence from a metal finding a computer print out.  I LOVE how it all came together.
Have you had a project like that?  
Thanks for stopping by.

Wicked Good Card

Another quick one...

This is another one from my colored images stash, Wicked Good from Simply B Stamps.  I colored the image with Prismcolor pencils and added Krystal Effects to the crystal ball and eyes, and use a glitter pen from Gelly Roll to add sparkle to her crown.  This was a fun one to color and I have been dying to use.  I kept it pretty simple as I wanted to focus on the image and sentiment, which came with the image.  Papers are from my scrap basket, as well as the ribbons and flower stickers...even the blue scalloped circle was in my scrap basket.  I love when I can use up those bits and pieces!  

What are you creating today?

Funny Bunny Card

Quick share...I did this one for a technique swap.  I like this Tee Pee card.  It is fun and so cute to display.  Our theme was summer and I just happened to have this little Tiddly Inks image colored up already so...went together very quick.  I used parers from my scrap basket and added a few glittery fish stickers.  Done!  Hope you are having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by.  Marie
