Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge!! =)

Pin It





Hello!! 
I'm here to share the card I've made for the New Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge ~ Anything Goes!! =)  With Halloween only two weeks away I thought it would be FUN to create a Halloween Card!! I started with some Sweet My Mind's Eye Halloween Paper and the I've used the PS Holly Jolly and Ghoulfriends Stamp Sets along with the Ghoulfriends Icons Dies to create my FUN card Design!! I've added some Orange Martha Stewart Glitter and some Vintage Silver Glitz Ritz Glitter to a few of the Streamers for some Extra Dimension and I LOVE the look in real life!! I stamped a shadow using the PS Shadows Stamp Set to ground my image and then I stamped my Ghost onto some Spider Web Patterned Paper with Versa-Mark and Heat Embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder!! I added some Cream Ink over the mouth and let it dry!! Then I added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker Pen over his Teeth and some Wiggly Eyes for another touch of Dimension and FUN!! I stamped and Heat Embossed the Sucker using Clear Embossing too onto some Chevron Patterned Paper and then I colored in the stick and edged my images after die cutting them out a Black Soot Distress Marker!! I added my Images using Foam Tape and then adhered my Card Front Panel using Foam Tape to a Black Card Base!!



 


I just LOVE the way it turned out!! What do you think!!??

I hope you'll check out the REST of the Paper Smooches SPARKS DT Blogs and that you'll join us in the FUN for the Challenge this week!! You'll have until The deadlineSaturday, October 25th at 11:59pm PST.

Halloween Wekk

Hello!!

I'm here for the Halloween Week Spooktacular over on the Paper House Productions Blog and I'm sharing the Sweet/Spooky Halloween Banner I've made for my Entry Way Hallway!! =)
I have a Ladder that hangs on the wall and I decorate it for the different Seasons, Holidays!! I wanted a Banner that I could hand for Halloween which is only 2Weeks away!! I started by Die Cutting some Banner Bases using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Large Rectangle Die from some Paper House Productions Halloween Patterned Paper!! I just LOVE this Collection of papers as there are some Designs with Glitter and I LOVE Glitter!! =) I then Die Cut some Stitched Circles using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Die from Cream Cardstock!! For the Letters I've used the Memory Box Letter Dies that I cut from Black Cardstock and ran through my Xyron Sticker Machine and then covered in some Glitz Ritz Fine Black Glitter!! I LOVE this super Fine Glitter!! =) I adhered the Black Glitter Letters to the centers of the Cream Stitched Circle Dies and then Glued them to the Centers of the Stitched Rectangle Banners!! I used a couple Different Packages of 3-D Paper House Production Stickers to Decorate my Banner and Bring it to Life!! I LOVE that there are SO MANY options available just by changing out the Stickers that you use!! =) These Banners would even make Great Gift ideas either to make or for you to put together as a Kit for someone!! =) The Holidays are coming FAST and this would be the PERFECT time to think about things that you could make or give as gifts!! =)
I then punched my Holes and Adhered some Paper Reinforcements so that my Banner would be more sturdy!! I used some Sheer 7/8 Black Ribbon as my Banner Hanger and then I took some 1in. Purple Ribbon and some Green Tulle Ribbon and an 3/8 Oragne Ribbon into 4 in. strips and tied them in between all of the Banners to create a FUN Junk Ribbon Banner look and I LOVE the way it turned out!!





What do you think!!?? These pictures don't do this Banner total justice as these Stickers are So Detailed!! I just LOVE them!! =) The Glitter bats on the Paper just adds that EXTRA Touch and I hope you'll consider making one of these for your Home or to give as a Gift!! It took me about 30 minutes to sketch out my design once I had all of the elements together I thought I wanted to use!! Then by the time I got everything Die Cut and glued together it probably only took about 3 hours to put it altogether!! =)  (I'm operating with only one arm so this might be subject to change if your ALL there!! HAHAHAHA!! )
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you'll go and Visit the Paper House Productions Blog to see what the rest of the Amazing DT has create to share this week!! =)
Have a Fabulous Weekend!!

Isn't it FUN!!?? See I told you!! I thought it would be FUN to create a Sweet Little Treat Bag!! I started with a Kraft and White Polka Dotted Gift Bag!! I have some Red Doilies and then I Die Cut an Ornament Tag using a MFT Die Set!! I Stamped and colored my Image using my Colored Pencils and then blended it out with Gamsol!! I fussy cut the main part of the image leaving behind the Sleigh Runner and the Gift Bag Handles and then I stamped the Image again onto the Center of the Ornament Tag and then Colored in the Sleigh Runner and added a Snow Bank that I added some Rock Candy Clear Distress Glitter too!! I Adhered the Sleigh over the top of the other image and then I die cut another Smaller Ornament Tag from the same MFT Die Set and stamped my Sentiment onto it!! I glued it down off to the left hand side of the Sleigh!! I wanted to make it look like it was snowing so I stamped some Snowflakes using some White Pigment Ink and then I added some Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder and some Rock Candy Clear Distress Glitter!! I just LOVE the way this looks in real life!! =)  I die cut a couple Holly Leaves from some Green Felt using a PTI Holly Die and then I die cut the Holly Berries from some Red Felt and then to add some Sparkle I added a few SSS Red Metallic Sequins and added a few Red Gems to the Centers of them!!

I LOVE these SWEET Images and there are SO Many ways they can be used!! I thought it would be FUN to create a Shaker Card!! I started by Die Cutting the Elements for my Shaker using a PTI Snow Globe Die Set!! I LOVE this!! Then I stamped the Snowman and Newton Image and colored it in using my Colored Pencils and Gamsol!! I added some Clear Glitter Wink Of Stella Glitter Pen to parts of the Image for some Extra Sparkle!! =) I fussy cut the image out /and then used my Black Soot Distress Marker to finish off the edges!! I wanted some falling Snow inside my Snow Globe so I stamped a few of the Snow Flake Images with White Pigment Ink and then added some Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder and some Rock Candy Clear Distress Glitter!! =) I then added my Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and a Few MINI Sequins and I LOVE the way they look like Falling Snow!! I put my Shaker Element together and then Stamped my Sentiment chosing to only use a Part of the Sentiment!! I LOVE that you can use as little or as much of a sentiment as you want to personalize your projects!! =) I die cut some Trees from an IO Stamps Die and then added some Jute String!! I thought it would be FUN to create a Poinsettia with a Jingle Bell center for an Embellishment to my Snow Globe so I Die Cut some Felt and some Patterned Paper that I covered in Glitter using a Memory Box Die and then layered the pieces all together to create my Poinsettia!! I added a few Felt Holly Leaves too and I LOVE how it turned out!! I wanted the background to resemble the inside of my Snow Globe so I stamped and added to some more Snow Flakes and my card was Finished!! =)

Hello Sweet Blog Friends!!

I can't wait to share the Tag I've made for today!! I LOVE this New Holiday Hounds Stamp Set!!

 
Isn't this FUN!!?? It just makes me SMILE every time I look at these SWEET Images and read the AMAZINGLY Clever Sentiments that go with them!! I decided it would be FUN to create a Tag for a Stocking Stuffer and I started by die cutting a Wood Grain Tag using a PTI Tag Die!! I then used the Winston's Home for Christmas Stamp Set that we shared yesterday to stamp the Holly Garland across the top of my Tag!! I colored it in with Colored Pencils and then I used the Sparkle image from this stamp set to add just alittle Sparkle to the Garland!! I wanted it to look like the Lights were Twinkling!! =) I stamped the little one only with Versa Mark and then added some Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder and then added my Gold Ritz Glitz Glitter!! I stamped and Embossed my Sentiment to make it pop and then I stamped the Stocking Image and used my Colored Pencils to color it in and used my Gamsol to Blend it out!! I fussy cut it out and colored the edges with my Black Soot Distress Marker and used Foam Tape to pop it up off the Tag front!! I die cut a couple Sweet Little Bows from an IO Stamps Die and layered them and then added a Mini Rusty Jingle Bell to the center of the Bow to finish it all off!!  =)  I LOVE the way it came together!! =)
