Lots of Freaky Friends!

The new Holiday Card "Create"tions Collection from Create with Connie and Mary has begun....I am so excited!  Normally my posts are on Friday, but my first card set is up today for this week!  Since I used Freaky Friends, I am doing a review of some of my favorite designs that I've made so far.

I love this fun shaker card!!  The post for this one includes a quick tutorial showing how I make my shakers from jewelry bags.  To see more click HERE.

I love this one too!  The fun banners and sparkly stars are two great elements to use with the spooky witch!  To see more about this card, click HERE.

I think this is a fun one with the spooky white eyes.  I had this card put together in a flash with simple stamping and Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper.  More details can be found HERE.

Another fun card with spooky eyes!  It also features Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper and Ghoulish Greetings.  The Star Framelits add a fun design element as well.  More details can be found HERE.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the review of Freaky Friends cards today!  I made an awesome set for the Holiday Card "Create"tions Collection too!  To find out more about the collection and how to become a subscriber, please visit Create with Connie and Mary.

Truly Grateful for TSSC330

It's Monday and time for the new Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  I had a great time with this week's sketch, check out what Mary Jo has for us.

Isn't this a fun one!  I was in fall card making mode so I went with the same theme for this card challenge.

I used the new Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper for inspiration.  The card base is Crushed Curry with a layer of the designer paper.  I took a piece of designer paper in Cajun Craze and embossed it with the Woodgrain embossing folder for texture.  The rest of the design comes from Truly Grateful.  I kept with the fall tones by using Soft Suede, Hello Honey and Early Espresso for my inks.

The last part of the card was the sentiment.  I used Cajun Craze ink to stamp "truly grateful" at the bottom.  To follow the sketch, I added in paper piercing around the sentiment.

Now it's your turn!  Join the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge too!  Just go to Technostamper for all the details and more great samples from the Design Team.

Celebrate Fall!

I hope you are all enjoying Labor Day weekend!  I have a fall card to share with you today for the color challenge this week from the Creative Challenge Club Blog.  First, let me show you the colors.

I put together a quick card that uses stamps that are not meant specifically for fall.  I used new stamps from the main catalog.

I made a card base from Island Indigo and added a layer of Crushed Curry.  On Whisper White I stamped Pumpkin Pie polka dots using Dotty Angles.  The dots remind me of falling leaves and fits perfectly into my idea!  Next is the sentiment stamped with Island Indigo.  I only used "celebrate" so I could add "fall" with the Alphabet Rotary Stamp.  Last little embellishment was a leaf from the Autumn Wooden Elements in the Holiday catalog.

A quick and easy card for fall! Love it!  I hope you will take a few moments to stamp this week and join the color challenge with me!  Just stop over at the Creative Challenge Club Blog for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy stamping!
