My Bildy Bookmark

I have a 9 year old daughter I am always encouraging to read. So, I thought maybe if she had a cute little bookmark, she might get inspired to read more. The current challenge on Bildmalarna Blog is to make a bookmark- perfect!! For this challenge, used a Bildmalarna stamp, Rose Mimosa, she is just so sweet looking.

I have colored her with copic markers to match the colors in this new Basic Grey pack called Olivia. I can't get enough Basic Grey paper, I love it all. I added a couple of swirls that I made with my irock and the swirls pattern. I love the little bit of bling and elegance it adds to the card.

Tilda the Witch

I have used the adorable Tilda with spider stamp for my Magnolia Halloween project for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge. She is just such a cute little witch. I have colored her with my copic markers of course.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the papers are really blingy. They are from a new Die Cuts with a View pack that is full of glittery Halloween papers. The houndstooth is glittery and the silver spiders are foiled. To match the bling of the paper, I went over parts of my image with my spica pens, which unfortunately doesn't show up well in the picture either but it looks great in real life. . I added a brad made with my chatterbox easy brad maker and some ribbon and then finished the card off with some crystals that I set with my Irock tool.

Trick or Treat

It is my turn on the big Stamping Scrapping Designs nestability compatible stamps blog hop!!!! ! luck person will win some free stamps at the end of this blog hop!!! You need to leave a comment on every design team members blog each day of the hop and you will be entered in the drawing. I have used some of the stamps from the Holidays Set to make my project.

I cut a treat bag with my cricut out of some black core'dinations cardstock and then covered it with different patterns of paper from the Basic Grey Eerie collection.

Then I stamped and colored my images. I put a little bit of my E50 copic around the edges of the mummy to make him look a little more worn and not so white. Then I cut him out with my labels 4 nestability and inked around the edges with some black soot distress ink. I cut another paper pattern with the larger labels 4 dies and matted the mummy on that. I then air brushed some prima flowers with my copics so that they would fit in with the paper a little bit better. The V99 and V95 copcs go well with the purple in this paper.

I put added the Boo sentiment onto a mega curved rectangle die, embossed it, sanded and distressed it. Now, every treat bag needs some handles. I decided to use black tulle as the handles of this bag because I think it fits in with the whole eerie Halloween them. I hope you have enjoyed my treat bag. Please leave a comment to be entered in the drawing!!!

My Little Candy Corn Witch

I have had some unexpected time off from crafting due to a family tragedy. I think I am ready to jump back in with both feet and try to get caught up on my challenges. This little card is for the Anything Goes challenge on Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central. I absolutely love this little Mimosa witch stamp. She is a super cute little witch. My daughter was a candy corn witch for Halloween last year, so when I saw the ruffles on her dress, I knew she would make a perfect candy corn witch too. So, here is a picture of my little candy corn witch

and here is the card she inspired.

I colored Mimosa and her little cat with my copics. I cut her out and then put her on a circle that I turned black with my black soot distress ink. I then matted that circle on one of the new beaded circle nestabilities. I added a spider web border that I cut with the new deep edge spider web punch from Martha Stewart. I finished the card off with a bow topped with a candy corn button. I hope you can join our anything goes challenge we would love to see what you make!!!
