Thankful for You Fall Card!

It's Wednesday and it is time for another challenge at Craftaholics R Us. This week's theme is Thank You! I went with a Thankful for You card.


I used a set of leaf stamps from Bo Bunny and stamped them onto a piece of cardstock from Papertrey Ink that was diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die from Jaded Blossom. I used the same cardstock for my card base and attached a piece of patterned paper from Doodlebug Design. The Thankful for You stamp is from Jaded Blossom as well.

I can't wait to see what you make for this week's challenge!

Blessings,
                    

Happy Halloween 2017!

Happy Halloween, friends!!! I hope you have a Boo-tiful day with family and friends!

I have a couple of fun treats for you!


My daughter's class visited a Care Center behind their school and put on a fall skit for the residents. Her teacher asked me if I could make something that the kids could give to them, so I made a bunch of these cute bookmarks! They were a big hit!

I used Jaded Blossom's Halloween Dies, Halloween Paint Splatters, Pumpkin Faces, and Pick Your Poison! I loved the cute little faces so much, that I decided that I would also use the ghosts and faces for the treats that I made for my husband and kiddos for Halloween morning.




Have fun trick or treating tonight. Stay safe and stay warm!!! It is going to be a really cold one here in the Kansas City area!

Head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog to see more Halloween treats that have been shared this month.

The bookmark svg file is from SVG Cutting Files. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design and the cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.

Blessings,

Charming Friend, You're Invited! Craftaholics R Us Challenge #41!


This week's theme is an easy one - Anything Goes!!! Yay!


This is the birthday invitation that I made for my daughter's birthday. We had so much fin stamping coloring and assembling these together. Then the best part was that once we had the party, we also taught all her friends to make cards using the same characters - and then they were able to pick a sentiment of their choice and give the card to someone else. It was such a fun party and so full of blessings! The characters are from a My Favorite Things stamp set called Magical Dragons. I also used an MFT stencil for the clouds. The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.

Can't wait to see what you make for this Anything Goes Challenge! You have until Tuesday October 24 at 12 pm EST to enter.

Blessings,
                    

Spooktacular Birthday!

It is my day to post over on the Jaded Blossom Blog, so I have a treat for you today!

I always wanted an October birthday so that I could get Halloween birthday cards; so when my niece had her birthday last week, I couldn't help myself - I had to make a Spooktacular card!!!


Isn't it cute!!! I used Card Mat Dies, Stitched Circle Dies, Halloween Dies, and So Many Birthdays 3. The card base is cardstock from Papertrey Ink.

Hope you are getting excited for some trick or treating. We will be joining my brother and his family at their haunted front yard. I'll share pictures of our hauntingly happy fun!

Blessings,

Merry and Bright! Jaded Blossom October Release Day 4!

Welcome to Day 4 of sneak peeks for the Jaded Blossom October Release! Today we are sharing two more stamp sets - Noel and Ornaments.

I used the Luggage Tag Die and Holiday Splatters stamp set as well. The paper is from Doodlebug Design and the cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. I used Shabby Shutters Distress Ink to stamp the snowflakes for the background.

Eating gumdrops reminds me so much of my Grandpa, so making this treat has been bittersweet as I ate gumdrop after gumdrop! I have missed my Grandpa for many years!

Merry Christmas to All... Jaded Blossom October Release Day 1!

Crafty friends, it is October Release time at Jaded Blossom.

Day 1 sneak peek is the cute new Christmas Banner Dies that are sure to make all your Christmas projects Merry and Bright!

When I saw the stockings, I was brought back to my favorite Christmas book - The Night Before Christmas. I collect this book, trying to get another one every year with the different illustrators.



So I paired the new Christmas Banner Dies with the Holly Jolly stamp set and the Card Mat Dies to make this sweet card.

I used cardstock from Papertrey Ink and used embossing powder to add my sentiment.

The new release will be available this Friday at 4 pm PST, but if you can't wait...

Can't wait to see what you create!

A Halloween Hello!

It has been a few weeks, but I was finally able to finish another MFT Weekly Sketch.


This was made using Sketch 352. The stamp set is MFT's Witch Way is the Candy!

The patterned paper is from MFT's Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pad. I used Copic markers to color my images and the then colored the yellow panel with the same yellow Copics I used for her dress. I used foam squares to adhere the panel, the witch, and her famliar.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Blessings,
