Happy Halloween!!!!!

I hope everyone had a great Halloween!!! It's been a busy weekend. Here are some pictures of the Halloween festivities here at our house.

We used the cricut cartridge Pumpkin Carving to cut our pumpkin design out of vinyl.

We placed the design on the pumpkin, traced around it, and cut. Super simple!!!

Now time for the Halloween Carnival.

As soon as we put the costume on the dog, she ready to trick or treat.

Happy Thanksgiving

I know it's a little early to be thinking about Thanksgiving, I mean we haven't even made it to Halloween yet, but I've had this little image for so long and haven't used it. I figured this was the perfect time. Scrappy Frogs is having a Thanks challenge. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and created this Happy Thanksgiving card.

I used Native American Tilda as my image. I masked her and have her sitting on a bench. She is colored with copic markers and this is one of the first times I have ever colored black hair. I've always been intimidated by it, but it wasn't as hard as I expected. I added a flower up in the corner with some leaves and some fall looking berries that I found at the craft store. The sentiment is from my favorite sentiment set- label accents.

Sparkly Singing Tilda

Magnolia Stamp Lovers is having a Sparkling Challenge and I wanted this card to sparkle as much as it could, so I grabbed as many sparkling products as I could find. I stamped my image Singing Tilda, and colored her with copic markers to match the colors in this glittery sparkly paper. I went over her dress with some shimmerz paints to make it sparkle.

I then drew on a necklace with some liquid pearls and stuck a real pearl in the center. The flowers have been dabbed with shimmerz paints and sprayed with shimmerz spray to make them more sparkly. I also added some clear sparkly pearls behind the flowers . To finish it off, the sentiment is stamped on paper and colored with shimmery chalk. It's hard to tell but I went over the words For You with a clear glitter pen. And the final sparkling touch was to put an Irock rhinestone in each corner. I have used the sketch from Friday Sketchers for the layout of my card. I am also entering this card in the 7 Kids College Fund Magnolia Challenge to use flowers and layers.

Well, Halloween is almost here and I'm sure all the little witches, goblins, and ghosts are getting ready. It looks like Mimosa and her little cat are getting ready to go out and do some haunting.

This has to be the sweetest little witch I have ever seen.
The stamps is Mimosa Witch. I have colored her with copics to match the colors in this fun Halloween paper- Lollipop Lizzy from Imaginisce. I stitched around the edges of the layers and then added a few prima flowers up in the corner. I sprayed the roses with my copic airbrush to turn them black and green to match the paper. Then I added some black rose ribbon along the side. I love the way black tulle looks on Halloween projects. The sentiment in the corner is from the Bildmalarna fall kit. I stamped it on textured cardstock to give it kind of a distressed look. Don't forget, this is an anything goes challenge, so please link your projects.

A Batty Bildy Card

Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central is hosting a Halloween challenge right now. I decided to use Tosse dressed up like a bat from the Fall Bildmalarna stamp kit for my project. I cut the haunted house out on my cricut with the mini monsters cartridge and added some stickles and spica pen for a little bit of bling. Then I colored Bat Tosse to match. I gave him a little bling by adding some copic spica pen along the shadows of his bat cape. I pop dotted a few bats and added them up in the corners for a spooky look. I hope you have enjoyed my Batty Bildy card and I can't wait to see what the rest of the design team comes up with.

Magnolia Stamp Lovers is having a lace challenge right now. I had the perfect stamp in mind for this challenge- Tilda in Bunny Slippers.

This is one of the cutest stamps I've seen in a long time and the little diaper she is wearing looks like lace. I colored this sweet little Tilda with my copic markers. I used BG10 to shade the white diaper to give it some depth but still appear to be white. I matted the image with one of the new Beaded Oval nestabilities. I used another beaded oval nestie for my sentiment. I added a flower and some Magnolia chandelier garland in the corner for some added excitement. The paper I used is Basic Grey- Olivia. It's adorable and the little bunnies on it are perfect for this image. To finish my card off, I added a little bit of lace of course. I love adding lace to my projects, so this one is right up my alley.

Halloween Treat Bag

Scrappy Frogs Challenge blog is having a Halloween Treat Bag contest. I decided this was the perfect time to use my new Pumpkin Carving cricut mini cartridge. First I cut a bag from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on my cricut. Then, I cut one of the faces from the pumpkin carving cartridge and backed it with a green rectangle. I sewed around the rectangle with a zig zag stitch and added some fringe to the top of the bag.

For the back of the bag, I cut the word Boo also from the pumpkin carving cartridge and mounted it to a lacey square nestabilitie.

This was a really fun and easy treat bag to make. The pumpkin carving cartridge has a ton of cuts on it that would be great for this kind of bag.
