Happy Halloween!

Good Afternoon and Happy Halloween!

I'm so excited to get back to my Magnolia stamps! They are one of my true obsessions. Just look at that sweet little face!

This is "Lovely Tilda" from the Autumn/Fall Collection and she was a "must have" as soon as I saw her.

I've used some gorgeous paper from Teresa Collins called "Giving Thanks" and black and orange Bazzill card stock. The flowers are cut from the same Teresa Collins paper using one of the Tim Holtz flower dies and the May Arts Black stitched ribbon is one of my all time favorites!
She is all dressed up for Halloween in her little orange dress.
Here is a list of the Copic colors used: E0000, E00, YR14, Y38, Y32, E31, E25, E50 and 0.

My final Halloween project is another image from the "Be Very Scared" Penny Black stamp set. I didn't even get to ink up every image in that set...I guess there is always next Halloween.

The kitten and balloon are colored with Copic markers. I've matted the image with some black card stock and adhered it to an acetate box that is filled with Candy Corn.

Here is a side view of the project complete with candy corn!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a great Halloween!

Penny Black Halloween

Hello Again!

I'm back again with three Halloween cards that are all made using the Penny Black Transparent stamp set called "Be Very Scared". This is such a great collection of images because every single image is absolutely adorable! Just take a peek at these little cuties!

First is the Kitty in the Pumpkin:
I've used White, Black and Orange Bazzill card stock, my large Marvy circle punches, the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder, a white gel pen and my Copic markers. This is such an adorable little kitten:-)

Second is the Mouse with the Broomstick:
I must admit that I bought the stamp set for this image alone, but instantly realized that I liked every image in the set. I've used some Reminisce Halloween Argyle paper, Black & Orange card stock, Black May Arts ribbon and my Copic markers to color the image.

And the third image is the Vampire Kitty!
He's super easy to color with Copic markers because his cape is already stamped black. I found this beautiful candy corn paper from K&Company and paired it with the same Black and Orange Bazzill card stock I've used on the other cards. I've airbrushed a soft background on my white card stock using the Copic airbrush system.

The "Trick or Treat" sentiment stamp is from a separate Penny Black transparent stamp set called "Trick or Treat". I think that little spider hanging from the word "Trick" adds just the perfect touch.

Thanks again for popping by. I'll be back tomorrow with a final couple of Halloween projects!


Witches Shoes

Good Morning and Happy Almost Halloween!

It is such a gorgeous Fall day. I'm hoping that the weather holds for all of those little Trick-or-Treaters that will be out tomorrow evening.

I really love this stamp from Stampendous called "Witches Shoes". It's sweet and simple and so easy to color. The orange paper is in the first card is by Echo Park. The dotted green paper used in the second card is from the "Booville" line by Little Yellow Bicycle.

The "Trick or Treat" sentiment is from a Penny Black stamp set. You may notice the tiny spider hanging from this sentiment. I popped a tiny black gem on top of the stamped spider. Just gotta love that itsy bitsy spider!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Give Me Your Candy...or Else

I'm Back....Just in time for Halloween!

It's been so long since I've posted anything...and now Halloween is just a few days away.

I couldn't let Halloween pass by without posting a few new projects on my much-neglected BLOG so I grabbed my camera and a few of the Halloween projects I've been working on and headed over to my little photo cube.

I'm starting tonight with a couple of sweet little Halloween treats.

This adorable little Vampire image is from Stampendous. He is colored with Copics and adhered to a small treat holder that is just the right size for a snack-sized package of M&M's. Here's a side view with the M&M package nestled safely inside.

The paper is from the "Booville" collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. The BAT trim at the top of the treat is a Black Satin trim from May Arts. I've used it here to decorate the top of the bag as well as hide the small staple that is holding my treat closed.

The treat bag is made from a strip of paper measuring 3x12; then scored at 4 1/2, 6 1/2 and 11. As you fold the top 1" flap over the top, you can simply staple the treat closed.

And here are the Copic Colors: C7, C5, C3, YG01, YG03, E0000, E00, YR04, Y38

Thanks so much for stopping by!
