Freaky Friends for CCMC317

I have a fun Holiday catalog preview card for you today.  Connie and Mary have a super cute sketch for the Thursday Challenge this week, check it out.

As you all may know, I LOVE Halloween cards!!  So, today I have another Freaky Friends card to share.

I had such a blast making this card!  The new Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper is just tooooo cute!  The card was quick and easy to make, which I love as well!

The card base is Tangerine Tango.  I added segments of designer paper along the bottom then added stamping to the top.  I added in eyes in Tangerine Tango and the sentiment from Ghoulish Greetings with Basic Black.

The focal point is two layers of stars with a cute little monster in the center.  I hand cut the monster and added him with a dimensional.  So there you have it!  Another fun Freaky Friends card.  I will have many more to share in the future so stay tuned!

Now it's your turn!  Pull out your stamps and paper and join the challenge with me.  You can find all the details plus more great samples at Create with Connie and Mary.  While you are there, be sure to check out all the details about the upcoming Holiday Card "Create"tions Collection.  We have lots of amazing card sets to help you prepare for the holidays!  We start Preview Week on Sunday and Early Bird pricing is available now!

Freaky Friends for TSSC328

I am sooooo excited to have new Holiday Catalog products to play with!  My order came last week and I have been stamping and stamping!  For the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge I used the cute new Halloween set called Freaky Friends.  First, let's look at the sketch Mary Jo has for us this week.

When I saw this design, I knew the little monsters would be perfect!  I even added a star to match the sketch!
Isn't this too cute!!!  Let me tell you, you are going to LOVE this year's Holiday Catalog!!  There are so many amazing stamps and accessories, you will be blown away!  This new set Freaky Friends caught my attention right away...I love making Halloween cards!  So this was the first product on my pre-order.

I started out with Tangerine Tango as my card base since it's one of the colors in the new Designer Series Paper Motley Monsters.  To match the polka dot designer paper, I embossed the Tangerine cardstock with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

For the monsters, I went pretty simple.   The first is stamped with  Bermuda Bay, the second with Daffodil Delight.  In the center is a Tangerine Tango star from the Star Framelits.  I stamped "yum" in the center with the new Rotary Alphabet.  This rotary stamp is absolutely AWESOME!  It gives you the freedom and the ease to add whatever sentiment you need!  One tip though, I did find it stamped better when I placed my cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat.  The mat has a little give that allows the rotary stamp to get good contact with your cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this fun Halloween card!  I know it's early, but playing with new stamps from the Holiday Catalog is so FUN!  Now it's your turn to have FUN!  Grab your stamps and paper and join the challenge with me!  Just go to Technostamper for all the details plus more great cards from the Design Team.

Bloom with Hope for CCC09

Happy Monday!  I have a beautiful floral card to share today for the sketch challenge from the Creative Challenge Club Blog.  

Isn't this designer paper gorgeous!  When I looked at the sketch I knew simple was the way to go.  Here's the sketch Wendy has for us.

I based my card design on the All Abloom paper.  I wanted the paper to stand out and this design does just that.  Since the paper is on the bolder side, I went with simple for the flower.

 The largest bloom was stamped tone on tone in Lost Lagoon.  If you haven't gotten this color yet, you MUST!  It's such a beautiful color of blue.  To complete the design, I added in a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock and Blue Lagoon 3/8" Stitched Stripe Ribbon.

All in all , I am loving the colors and design of this week's Creative Challenge Club card!  I hope you will join the challenge with me and create a card of your own.  Just visit the Creative Challenge Club Blog for more details and designs from the rest of the team.

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Stamping!
