TTSTV #21-Faux brick

My card today is for TTSTV #21 over on MFPspeedytv.  Pat Garvin brought us the faux brick technique.  I  have never tried this and I do love how it works...the next time though, I'd ink up the brick some more.  I used frayed burlap and aged mahogany, gold domes and champagne shimmer paint with the new Poinsettia Blooms stamp set.  Head on over to Speedy TV and check it out, play and you might win a new stamp set. Below is the stamp set you could win.

I know....I was surprised, too!  I wanted to use this ribbon from MFP's a HC so I googled poinsettia images.  Low and behold.  I found one this color.  I didn't read about it.  My eye is still messed up.  I have meds for it but it is a bugger for sure.  I used pearlescent watercolors, a bit of dimensional gold paint and some gold domes.  The EF doesn't show up on here but is beautiful.  Time to close the eyes!

I made a clean and simple card for the hop today.  I have a terrible scratch in my eye and drops don't last long enough to do anything.  Darling set.  SO much to do with it.  Beautiful ribbon from MFP's a HC.
Head on over to Debbie's next!

A Cauldron Halloween



Good Saturday!  I am definitely in a Halloween mood and had fun making this card!  I love our festive Halloweeen stamps at DRS Designs...check them out!
For this card I used the new releases: tree limb, the Burning Cauldron and the vertical Happy Halloween.  I stamped the images in versamark and embossed in black.  I took so many photos to try to show the glitter in the cauldron and the black glitter on the steam....not so much!  I masked the moon and sponged the bg.
Head on over the the online store for some fun stuff.

Speedy TV TTSTV Challenge 20-Embossing Pop Can

Our 20th TTSTV challenge is embossing on a pop can-brought to us by Tammylee.  It can be found here. I used MFP's a HC set Autumn Splendor.  I am dieting so I am not drinking ANY soda....I had to dump one out to do this:)  I cut the top off, cut down the sides and then around the bottom.  I don't own a die cut machine so I cut it into a square, stamped my owl with versamark, embossed in copper and then rounded the corners with scissors.  The aluminum is on dimensionals.  I stamped the leaves and using ink and an aqua painter, painted them. Button, twine and a banner sentiment finish it off.

DRS Designs Thursday Challenge #47-cats

Happy Thursday!  I made this card for our challenge over at DRS Designs and today it is "cats".  I had fun with this card.  Stamped everything in black and used the following stamps; Cat Spider Square, Vertical Happy Halloween, Polka Dot BG and the large original plaid. I used some coordinating satin ribbon and then added some embroidery thread.  A ticket corner punch was used on the purple layer and though you can't see it well, I have a bit of stickles on the cat's hat and the middle of the spider web.
Head on over to DRS Designs Blog and play along
Take care,

DRS Designs Spooky Halloween

                                   
I made another card for Halloween...though I didn't use any new releases on this card, DRS Designs has some awesome stamps for you.  On this card I used spooky halloween greetingspooky eyes background and argyle background. I decided to add a little more fun to the "o's" in Spooooky and made some eyes using a hole punch and then drew in the pupils. The sentiment and spooky eyes layer are on dimensionals.  The ribbon and googly eye finish it off.

TTSTV-Waterfall card


I had a lot of fun doing this tutorial over at TTSTV by Jane Chambers...a waterfall card.  My brain had difficulty comprehending how to put it together initially.  But am happy with the result and it got a 2 thumbs up from my daughter!  Head on over to Speedy TV to play and maybe you can win this week!

DRS Designs Challenge 46-Witches

Happy Day!!!!  I hope everyone is well and still able to enjoy some beautiful fall colors.  I had a ton of tun making this card and I have some seriously inky fingers!  I used some new DRS Designs stamps: Run in Fear Halloween greeting, tree limb and (the not new) Silhouette haunted house.  I stamped the house in black twice and cute the moon out the second time and colored it with more mustard.  I then stamped the moon part again and painstakingly cut out the witch.  So...the main image is on dimension as well as the moon and then the witch on top of that.  I used a sponge for the sky with gray, perfect plum and concord crush.  I had a giant rhinestone brad in the top right corner but it is hard to see.
Head on over there and play with some of your witches for a chance to win!

DRS Challenge #45-Fall Leaves

I am sure I have said it already, but fall is my FAVORITE time of year!  I randomly stamped the fall leaf with acorn on white and brayered red, orange and yellow.  Next, I put more colors on the leaves with aqua painter and ink.  The acorns were done with pearlescent watercolors.  Head on over to DRS Designs to play.
