Mojo Monday 368

Mojo Monday 368 posted up  and it’s another great sketch.  I had fun with it.  I’m in the process of creating several cards (15 to be exact) for a “Come and Play Card Buffet).  Mojo Monday’s have been a fantastic help in creating the cards.  Here’s their sketch:

mojo368My card is created with one of my favorite stamp sets featuring a Christmas Tree which I embossed with white embossing powder. 

CC1015 HW Card1 WMI took CTMH reinkers and the blending pen to create the watercolor effect.  Wipe of the white embossing to make it stand out.  I used up some retired Sparkle and Shine paper for the card.  You can make this card at one of my Come and Play Card Buffets (CPCB)!

For class, we’ll use a different Christmas Tree set.

Have a creatively blessed day!

Elegance with Scaredy Cat

I love the colors in the Scaredy Cat papers.  We had a some black and white pictures from a family photo shoot.  I took the Scaredy Cat papers, Laughing Lola Picture My Life cards, and the Magic book to create this interactive layout:

 

SC LO4 WMSC Today Life is Good WMI think it turned out quite lovely! There is no stamping or  Cricut Cuts.  It’s a very simple layout.  Want to learn how to do this?  Attend one of the crops at my home!  =)  I’d be happy to help you recreate this layout.

Have a wonderfully creative day!

MoJo Monday 367

Hi everyone,

I follow Mojo Monday Blog and took my first big step out to enter one of my cards into it!  Very scarey and exciting all at the same time! I’m busy creating several cards for my “Card Buffet” Class.  When I saw the sketch for this week, I knew I had the perfect stamp set for it!

I love this stamp set, B1453 Frightfully Fun!  The little characters are awesome, cute, and easy to color in.  The sayings can be used outside of Halloween.

 

B1453 WM

B1453 – Frightfully Fun. Price of $12.00 reflects cost of item, shipping, handling, and tax.

Here’s a picture of the card in progress – love coloring with our Shin Han Touch Twin Markers!

If you love this card, you can come and make it at the Card Buffet!

Have a blessed, creative day!

Scaredy Cat – not so scared

Don’t pass over Scaredy Cat paper if you don’t celebrate Halloween!  I’ve done a few layouts with Scaredy Cat to show how versatile the paper can be!

SC LO3 WMBy using the reverse side of the B&T (Background and Texture) paper, you have patterns not specific to Halloween.  You are able to create layouts which use beautiful fall colors included in the paper pack, yet not a whiff of Halloween!!  I used Laughing Lola Picture My Life cards to create some of the accents and journal blocks; Used the CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridges to make the titles, and Magic to create the below interactive part of the page!

 

SC LO3 LP2 WM

I really  love the Magic book because it shows you how to add so many different interactive components to your pages!  It’s always fun to see someone’s face when they discover the secret to the page!

Have a creatively blessed day!

Scared Cat Two

Here’s featuring Scaredy Cat papers  as Halloween paper.  These layouts were inspired by some Brenda Rose did for the Close to My Heart Convention.  I did change some things and add my own touches.  I used the paper, compliments, and assortment for the these layouts.

 

SC LO2 WM

I cut the web borders from Artbooking (Cricut), stamped the cute Creepy Creatures (C1522) and used the Shin Han Touch Markers!

Have a creatively blessed day!!

Scaredy Cat isn’t so scary!

Scaredy Cat is our Halloween paper this year.  I love dress up play with kids and Halloween is just another excuse for kids to dress up all cute!  Here are some layouts inspired from some layouts Brenda Rose did for the Close to My Heart Convention.  While I added my own signature to the pages, the basic layout is from a picture I took at Convention.  I used the papers, compliments, and accessories from Scaredy Cat along with stamps and Cricut cut outs.  I  love how it turned out.

SC LO1 WMSC LO1 LP WMSC LO1 RP WM

I added the very cute Halloween characters from the Frightfully Fun (B1453) – they are so adorable just like the children in the pictures.  I used our Shin Han Touch Markers to color them in.  The Touch markers are a nice addition to our product line.  I love to color and these are an affordable option to Copic.  You don’t need three colors to do the shading – you layer the color to get darker areas and use the Colorless Blender to pull out the color to do highlighting!  I used the Cricut Artbooking to cut out the moon and bats.

Have a creatively blessed day,

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays is the October Stamp of the Month (SOM).  I am so in love with it!!  Most of the images can by cut out by the Cricut (makes your life infamously easier) and the stamps are solid (again making your life easier).   Here’s a card I made with the set (I see a few more cards coming!)

 

Oct SOM WM

I used our polka dot embossing folder, bakers twine with silver, glitter tape, Snowhaven papers, and 3-D foam tape.  This will be one of the cards we’ll be making for our Christmas card class (not the Snowhaven Card Workshop).

Pictures from CTMH for the SOM:
