Autumn Splendor

>> Saturday, October 1, 2016

Good morning!
Let's get fall falling!


I've used the Open Leaf-584D for the background, Woven Plaid-613P, for my plaid and October Pumpkin with Fall Leaves-1102G for my focal image.
My die cut frame is from Spellbinders (2 dies in the set to make the frame), sponged with Distress Ink.  My outside frame was made with Stitched Rectangles by ODBD. The outside frame and the oval frame are popped up with foam tape.  My embellishments are ribbon and a threaded button.
This is another simple card and easy to do!  I stamped the leaves all over but ended up coloring only the leaves that would show of course, Made my plaid with Yellow, Red, and orange to match the leaves in the background and my pumpkin and leaves are colored in the same fashion.
Before attaching my framed image, I stretched a piece of yellow ribbon with sheer middle and orange ribbon with sheer middle, across the plaid panel, then I added the framed popped up image.  I made a small bow with yellow gingham ribbon and topped it with the little threaded orange button. 
I love the bright colors of Halloween and fall, what a feast for the eyes!
Let's get stampin'!!
Thanks for visiting today!

Big City Wish

>> Friday, September 30, 2016

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff 

Happy Friday!
And happy LAST day of September! Yikes! Where has this year gone? Don't look now... Christmas is right around the corner. I'm going to play Scarlett O'Hara and think about that tomorrow. Or the next day. For today, I have a fairly easy card to share. I used the colors from the Splitcoast color challenge because I thought they would be pretty behind a black silhouette skyline. The colors are a dark purply raspberry, plum & lt gray. I die cut a white background, taped off the edges all around, then sponged on a combination of inks to try to get close to the colors. Then I stamped the Starry Bg first in the plum ink, then again in the white pigment ink across the top. 
The black city skyline & white silhouette behind it were added at the bottom & then I put into my Misti & inked only the BIG w/ a black marker & stamped it 3 times to get good coverage. The Wish was die cut once out of white & once out of black & stacked together to add on top of the BIG. The lt gray layer was die cut & added underneath. 

Here's a look at the inside. I used the negative of the die cut as a mask & sponged the city silhouette across the bottom.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
Supplies:
stamps: DRS Designs - Dream Big, Starry Bg (inside - Birthday Wishes greeting)

More Monsters

>> Wednesday, September 28, 2016

A few weeks ago, I posted a fun milk carton that I made, but I was only able to show you one side of it.  Today I want to share two more of the sides.

On this side I used the Beware Zombies Sign, the Ghouls Wanna Have Fun Greeting, and the Accent Bats.   I decorated the side by sponging and using stencils.


On this side I used Monster Hugs Greeting  and the Goblin image. I used stenciling and sponging on this side too. 

What a fun project this was! 

Hugs,

Nancy

Beware of Zombies

>> Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I have a quick and easy card share to remind you to join us for our current Trick or Treat challenge here on the blog.  I colored up the Zombie Gal along with the Beware of Zombies Sign stamp and fussy cut them out.  Since I knew this card would be pretty plain, I stamped and colored a second sign post and layered it on top of the first to add a bit of dimension.  I attached these onto an embossed background of a haunted house.

Then I uploaded it to the blog, and I looked at it and thought, hmmmmm....It needs something.


So I went back and added a few googly eyes to my die cut bats. That seemed to do the trick and make it more complete :).



Also, over the weekend I baked some mini pumpkin pecan loaves as a favor for my dinner guests to take home with them. I made my own tags by cutting a rectangle from some card stock, stamped and colored my Simply Pumpkin and used my corner punch and hole punch to make them look like tags, since I don't have a tag die that large.


Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you at the challenge!

Trick or Treat

>> Monday, September 26, 2016

In keeping with this week's challenge here at DRS Designs, I have a trick or treat card for you today. I used Count Porkula, my all time favorite Halloween image. Isn't he just the cutest thing?!


First I stamped Count Porkula with Memento Black ink on white CS, using the Misti so I could stamp again after coloring with Copics to get a crisp image. Once that was done I die cut him and layered him on purple CS. The candy corn border was stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics, trimmed down and layered on orange and purple CS. The banner was created by using just part of the Smell my feet greeting, die cutting and sponging on some Pumpkin Pie ink. The orange panel was embossed with a CB folder.

Hope you can join in the fun this week. I'd love to see your favorite Trick or Treat image! You can see details on the challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by,

Scary, Creepy Halloween

>> Sunday, September 25, 2016

Hi all, I know the calendar says it is fall but the thermometer says it July Hot, Hot, Hot. It makes it hard to think about ghost walks and hayrides. Which are some of my favorite fall actives. And Scary movies, the scariest of them all is what you cant see. To me this the Raven is super creepy why is he there what does he see.  



For my card today I started by sponging the background with 
Distress Ink, squeezed lemonade,and wild honey Memento tancelo, peanut brittle. If you have trouble sponging on the Memento cover the card with a coating of the lightest Distress Ink in this case the squeezed lemonade. Then adding the other colors on top. Once the background was dry I stamped the The Raven with Color Box Black then clear embossing powder. I very carefully colored the limb with brown Copic. The Accent Bats were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. 


For the greeting I stamped and embossed the Run in Fear then sponged the same colors over the top.

The spider web is a ms punch and the background is a embossing folder.


On the inside I used the Witches Brew Halloween Greeting.

Have a wonderful day,

Janett
