Spooky Halloween Cars

 Hello everyone! 

Time for Halloween!!  I used this die cut to make my Halloween cards this year.  The dies are from the Sunday Drive series from Spellbinders. This die has lots of pieces and I used a glue bottle with a very narrow cap called Beary Arts Precision Craft Glue. Putting the pieces together without this glue would have been quite difficult and messy.  Just takes a little patience and time. 

The cards have a decorative paper background.  I added some trees made with a Stampin' Up die cut. 

The moon is a punched circle distressed with distress ink. I used a foil paper with an adhesive backing to cut some of the bumpers.  Not sure where I got the foil paper. 

The insides all look like this:

Here are the other versions I made:
I made the card bases and the cars in different colors.

So, as the card says, Be Spooky!!  Hope you Have a Happy Halloween!!

See you next time.

Fall Themed Cards made with Stickers Part 2

 Hello everyone!

Back today with the rest of the Fall themed cards I made with stickers. My BFF Jan gave me the stickers and I really thought they were cute.

Here are the cards:

The last two and a little more minimal.

I found the stickers fun to work with and it was something a little different to do.  

I will be back next time with my Halloween cards.

See you then.

Fall Themed Cards made with Stickers Part 1

 Hello everyone!

I am back today with a collection of cards I made with stickers.  My BFF Jan gave me the stickers and I thought they were so cute that I wanted to make cards for Fall. Sometimes with stickers, it is easier to design a card around the sticker. Making the sticker a focal point instead of an embellishment seems to work better for me.  I made quite a few cards using all the stickers.  I will post them all today and in my next post.

 On the inside of each card, I stamped "happy fall". Of course, I did not have a stamp that said Happy Fall!  I had to use two different stamps.  One with happy and one with Fall. Worked out fine.  

See you next time with part two.

Girlie Graduation Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

I made this card for a friend who graduated from college.  Her degree is in commercial art.  So, I wanted to make an artsy card.  I may have gotten carried away with the bright pink ribbon.  Well, you can never have enough ribbon, can you?!  
I used multimedia paper (Strathmore) to stamp on and colored with watercolor markers. 

 Very cheerful!  I love the gigantic pink ribbon!  

Next time I will share a group of fall themed cards I made with stickers. 

See you then.
