Happy Halloween Z Fold Card

Hello Crafty My Crafty Friends,
Another first, I made a Z Fold Card.  With Halloween around the corner, I created this Halloween Card with my Silhouette and of course my Spectrum Noir markers. I went to Google and typed in Free Coloring Book Pages then I typed in Halloween.  There are tons of free images and I was able to import them into the Silhouette and cut them.  Did I say I love my Silhouette and Spectrum Noir Markers? LOL.  I also created the sentiment in the Silhouette and added the layers. Did you see the spider? I Love the way Silhouette can make intricate cuts. I remember how to use my Cricut, LOL I used the Holiday Cakes cartridge for the haunted house. The markers I used on the pumpkins are CT3,FS9,FS1,TN1,GB1,2. The cat BG2,3, PP1,JG2.  The ghost PP1,6,GG1,GG2, PP5. The wolf, TN2,3,FL3,BT7,CR8,OR1.  The witch, FL3,BGR3,BG7,PL4,CR8,BT1,TN3.  Frankenstein Family, GT 1,IG9,GG1,PP5,BB1, EB8, CT4, LG5.  As always, I love hearing from you, thank you for leaving comments and stopping by today.

Easel Card

Hello my crafty friends,
I created my first easel card for the Pin}spirational Challenge #76  The image is from Delicious Doodles   I used Spellbinders lacey circle die for the image and Spellbinders A2 basic shape dies for the sentiment and layers.  My base card is black and I embossed the green layer with the Cuttlebug chicken wire embossing folder for texture.  The sentiment was computer generated. I used Spectrum Noir markers.  The image made me think of the land of milk and honey.  That is how I came up with the colors for the ground. I used CT1,2,,4, GB8,10,TN5. For the horse, I used EB5, BGR3,Harness GB8 For the man I used DG2, TB1,TN7. I used Memento summer sky ink for just a hint of color in the sky.   The background paper layers are from Colorbox Design Light Bright 6x6 pad.

Missing You

Hello my crafty friends,
We had some really nice images from our sponsor Delicious  Delicious Doodles  for this weeks challenge over at {Pin}spirational Challenges I ventured into the realm of more paper layering.  The design paper I used was going to be a challenge, but  I had  confidence with my newly aquired set of A2 Spellbinders dies. Yea, no more measuring.  LOL  I just eyeball it most of the time.   I used my Spectrum Noir markers. Were you able to take advantage of the sale this past weekend? I mentioned it in an earlier post on my blog.  I had used 2 images from Delious Doodles for {Pin}spirational Challenges this week. Be sure to stop over and see what our Design Team has to inspire you. And a chance to win some digital images from Delicious Doodles too. Thanks for stopping by today.

Look Who's 3

Hello my crafty friends,
Today's card is for the Pinspirational Challenge #74  The sponsor for this cute image is by Stamp Art Design by Kathryne. I used Spellbinders oval scallop die on the image.  I created the sentiment label with my Silhouette Cameo.  The paper came from a 6x6 Ki paper Celebrate pad I picked up at Walmart.  I used Spectrum Noir markers for the balloons.  CT 1,2,3 LG3,4, For the bear FS2 TN2 and for the dress PP4,2. I used red glitter sticker dots for the buttons. I use Tim Holtz tea die distress ink on the edges of the scallop. I'm pleased with the way the pink balloon looks like its behind the yellow and green balloons.  Come visit{Pins}pirational Challenges for more inspiration from our design team and enter the challenge for a chance to win images from our wonderful sponsors Stamp Art Design and Bugaboostamps  As always thanks for leaving comments and I'd like to invite you to follow me as I share what I learn on this creative journey.
