A weathered Halloween

Happy Day to everyone!  My card features DRS Designs new releases:  the candy corn wreath and happy halloween greeting.  I stamped the wreath in burnt umber on white card stock, colored it and fussy cut it out.  I used only orange, lovely lilac and orchid opulence.  I stamped the sentiment on a kraft tage and adhered to wreath with orange embroidery thread.  For the door, I took a piece of hazelnut tan and swiped the craft white pad back and forth horitzontally.  I used the heat gun to set it and then ran soft suede back and forth horizontally to achieve the weathered door look.  A star brad used for the door knob.  I attempted to add some dimension around the perimeter.

Enjoy the lovely fall weather!

Faith SCS MMTPT164, DSCA01

My card today was made for a couple of reasons...it was made for the teapot challenge over on SCS and is on its way to a sweet girl in California going through some hard times.  Also, I am submitting it to Dolce Stamps and Cards for their challenge this week and it is distressing.  There blog can be found here.  I made this using DRS Designs stamps: medium daisy and a portion of the faith open heart greeting. I inked up the Tim Holtz musical score embossing folder with black and ran it through the cuddlebug and then distressed it with the edge of scissor.  The black layer was stamped with DRS Designs woven plaid bg stamp in craft white.  All edges distressed, did some tearing of paper and sponged some red along the edges.  The flower was stamped, colored in ruby red with a blender pen and then added some ruby red hi-lights with the marker...also some white hi-lights and then added some yellow stickles to the center.  I do believe that distressed cards are my favorite card to make!
Have a lovely day everyone!

Autumn is Nature's Second Spring...Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #73 and SCS CAS136

Now this card came together quick!!  I made it for two challenges... Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge  #73 which was to make a one layer card and SCS CAS 136 which is to use leaves on our creations.  It was a no brainer.  Gotta love the quick cards!  I used the Pumpkin patch kaleidescope ink pad and stamped the leaf repeatedly from the awesome new set at MFP's called Autumn Glory.  A touch of sheer ribbon and some rhinestones and it's all good!

I hope that everyone has an uneventful Monday!
Enjoy our second Spring!

Halloween Wishes (Play Date Cafe Color Challenge #98)




My card on this Sunday morning was made for the Play Date Cafe Color challenge #98 which can be found here.  Their colors this week are navy, teal and mustard.  I am digging making Halloween cards this year and DRS Designs is sponsoring the challenge this week with a $15.00 Gift Certificate! 
I started my card by stamping the soon to be released from DRS Designs silhouette cat on moon in versamark and embossing in black.  Next, I stamped the starry background in versamark and embossed in clear.  I brayered bermuda bay on bottom half and not quite navy from the top and down one corner.  I sponged more mustard in for the moon.  Halloween Spirits and Booze greeting (which is also soon to be released from DRS Designs) stamped in black and lightly brayered with bermuda bay and not quite navy.  I had a leftover piece of more mustard paper that was embossed with lattice ef and layered all the colors on the sentiment.  A bit of more mustard ribbon finishes the card off. 

Thanks for peeking and head on over to the Play Date Cafe and play for your chance to win!
