Halloween mini cards

Hi everyone,

I unfortunately didn't get there in time and I missed the challenge.  So I am going to show you what I did anyway!

(The challenge is in multiples of three or more that coordinate.  So I thought since Halloween is coming up I would do a few mini cards.)

I unfortunately didn't get there in time and I missed the challenge.  So I am going to show you what I did anyway!

These are 3x4.25 top folding.  I used the Lawn Fawn Critters in Costume  and Critters in Costume Lawn Cuts as well as SSS Hey Pumpkin stamps sets.

The cardstock is Recolletions from Michaels and I did some basic Copic colouring.  I use Color Box white pigment ink that came in the SSS CKOM for September.  

UPDATE:  This little guy was featured on the Lawn Fawn Flicker Friday (Oct 4th)!  YAY!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

OCC Insider D2


It's day 2 and this class is really making me stretch my crafting abilities!

For today's card we were to show off the inside through the outside.  Acetate was used in some of the cards and others where super long cards which were all great.

Here is my card for today.  I have to say that I have a love/hate relationship with Tombow mono multi glue.  I love it but when we get together, it gets messy... and not in a good way.  So you may see a hint of glue in places that there shouldn't be but I really didn't want to do this card over again.

If you have a look at my cards then you will notice that I actually used twine on my card today.  This is a first.  I know, true story!  I used the SSS "Thanks" stamp and die set.  I die cut the thanks and stamped the "for thinking of me".

I used Recollections cards stock and I cut the whole out with my MS craft knife and the acetate is from a die set that I purchased and put them with the stamps instead of keeping them in their own packaging.

I felt the card needed something more on the front so I added the dash lines and kept that going into the inside of the card.

Hope you enjoyed today's card and stay tuned for another one tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 1 of the Insider Card Class


Today is day 1 of the Inside card class.  Our home work is to take an existing or new card and match the inside with the outside.  The DT showed us a few "Pop Up" techniques but I felt that it wouldn't match my card so I popped it up with foam squares instead.

I took a card that I had made with the SSS KOTM and I added to the inside.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for another card tomorrow!

Lawn Fawn cards

Hi everyone!

I have to say that I am tickled with my Lawn Fawn order that I placed.  For one it came in just over a week (being in Canada it takes over 2 +) and they send with my order the cutes little stamp and thank you card and a few extra 6x6 pieces of paper!

Here are a few little cards I did with the sets that I ordered.  These are little 3x3 cards that I got out of the $1.50 bin at Michaels that I like to have on hand for those spur-of-the-moments that need a card

I used the Critters on the farm stamp set for the first two cards and I coloured them in with my copics.

For this card I used the "Our Friendship Grows" stamp set and again coloured it in with my copics.  

...and this is the result of thinking it needed just a little something and then it drops down onto my ink pad!! Grrrr!!!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Safe Travels Card - SSS September CKOM

Hi everyone!

Here is a card I did with the SSS card kit of the month for September.

For the card I used Recollections white card stock.  It did start out at an A2 size card but when I was colouring the little car black it had dropped on the edge of the card smearing some black ink on it so I cut it down so it's more like 5 1/4 x 4 1/4 but I think it still looks ok.  I used Hero Arts shadow inks, pale tomato, butter bar and tide pool.  I cut out a circle with my MS circle cutter (which I cut my finger on the first time I started this card!) at 1 1/2 in then I used my Tombow mono to adhere the the car.

Hope you enjoyed the card for today.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for all you do - card.

Hello again!

Wow!  Three posts in the same morning!!!  Thank goodness for holidays and a cloudy day!

Here is a card I made for one of the ladies in my church...shhhh I haven't given her the card yet!  ; )

I used Recollections kraft card stock and the SSS All seasons tree die.  I love this die but it is a labour of love as I had to take about two days to figure our a shim so that it would cut out all the little leaves but I finally got it and I love it.  I cut the tree out of three different colours of card stock and paper pieced them on to make it like a fall tree.  Totally worth it, don't you think?

I used the SSS stamp set "Inside and Out Sayings" designed my Kristina Werner.  I didn't show the inside of this card and I wrote a personal message but I love the sentiments the stamp set comes with.

I stamped the sentiment with CTMH Cocoa ink.

Hope you enjoyed the card as I enjoyed making it.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.
