Happy Halloween


Hello ... we working a new challenge at
 IF YOU GIVE A CRAFTER A COOKIE

The cookie for this challenge is





For my card, I'm using an image from Dr, Digi, Lil Jason.  I used all markers on the image.  I trimmed it down and framed it with Kraft CS.  The front panel spider web cs is from Recollections, a Halloween pad.  I inserted a piece of black cs between the Digi and the panel and used a white gel pen on the faux stitching.  The sentiment was colored with marker and then framed with black cs.  Everything was then added to a side fold black cs base.

I hope you have fun playing along with us on this challenge and I wish you all the best of luck as well.

Trick orTreat


Hello Everyone  --
Time for another challenge at 

For this challenge we have a sketch:



For my card, I started with a Digi from Bugaboo and I used all markers on the image.  I trimmed it down and framed it with black cs.  The background cs is from Recollections and the bottom maroon is just plain cs.  The ribbon I had in my stash as well as that puffy mylar heart.  That sheet is getting a lot of action lately.

I hope you have fun playing along with the challenge.  Thank you for stopping by.

Pumpkin Stack




Hello --It's an 
ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE
at Brown Sugar Challenge

our sponsor this month is 


For my card, I am using the image, Stacked Pumpkins.  I used markers and a water brush on the pumpkins.  For the card front, I blended Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans and Soot across the front.
Out of black card stock I cut using Lawn Fawn: the fence, using Penny Black: the tree and using MFTs: the stitched flag.  The sentiment was stamped in white embossing powder and a holiday stamp by Avery Elle.  The leaves were cut with a Spellbinders die 'foliage' out of scrap blended with Mustard Seed, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint.  All set on a black cs front and then again on a black cs side fold base.  Spooooooky.

I hope you have fun playing along with this month's challenge, remember, it's anything goes.

Owl Boo

This is my team card for

Pattie's Creations.

The theme this month is Halloween

I am using the image, 'owl silhouette'.  I masked off the owl and then I blended Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Fired Brick, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distressed inks.  Using the die cut from MFTs, I cut the grass out of black cs.  The moon is a circle punch that I dipped a couple of times into Lawn Fawn glow in the dark embossing powder.  The multi dips gave it an awesome texture and I love that it glows.   The sentiment was edged with Wilted Violet distress ink.
I hope you have fun playing along with this challenge this month.

Thinking of Fall





Hello, we have another challenge on the run at
If YOU GIVE A CRAFTER A COOKIE

The inspiration cookies for this round are:
 

For my card, I started with a stamp and die set from Simon Says  - Ornate Leaves.   I stamped them in Crushed Olive, Salty Ocean and Carved Pumpkin.  I then added clear embossing powder to give them a bit of texture and shine.  The Y-O-U was cut multiple times out of kraft and stacked and then topped with embossing ink and clear embossing powder for a cool look like leather.  I stacked up all my leaves on a piece of texture green wood-grain paper from DCWV and added the sentiment and bakers twine along with a couple of acrylic gem stones.  All on top of a top fold kraft cs base.

I hope you have fun playing along with this cookie challenge.
