Happy "Spooky" Halloween

Wow where is October go?  I can't believe it is already Halloween today!  I hope you all get lots of treats and no tricks! :)  Today I have a fun Halloween card that I have made using some absolutely amazing and cute stamps!
I am a total Team Edward Girl!  I fell head over heels for Edward when reading the Twilight Series books...which I can't wait for the next movie to come out later in November...my sister and I are counting down the days! :) When I got the Make It Crafty Monztaboyz Set (which is currently 25% off at SCACD) I immediately inked up the cute vampire...or if you were in my studio his name turned into Little Edward (wink wink)!  The papers used are from the fabulous Echo Park Apothecary Emporium collection (which also happens to be 25% off at SCACD...think of all the savings you can get by ordering these Halloween items today...you'll be ahead of the game for next year at this time)!  
My Little Edward was colored with Copics and cut out using my SB Circles, and then popped up onto a SB scalloped square.

Copic Colors Used on Little Edward: Skin: E11, E40, E42, Hair: E27, E35, E47, E49, Coat: N0, N1, N3, N5, Cape & Pants: N3, N5, N7, N9, R05, R46, R59, Bat: N3, N5,N7, N9.
The gorgeous flower arrangement was made using my Marianne Design LR0128 Flower Fantasy Die for the flower and leaves.  The Bat was created using Teresa Collins Happy Hollows Stamp Set.  Topped off with a Prima Delightful Day Glory Flower.  Flower, leaves, and Mr. Batty were edged with Black Diamond Stickles.

I also got a chance to color the other Monztaboyz too....although I didn't get cards made for the other two boys.....but I wanted to at least share my colored images with you :)
Meet Mr. Headless Horseman!  I still can't get over how fun these characters were to color.  Of course they all were colored with Copics.

Copics Colors Used on the Headless Horseman: Pumpkin: YR04, YR12, YR16, YR18, Y38, Y000, G28, YG00, YG06, YG45, Cape: N3, N5, N7, N9, V000, V01, V17, V95, V99, BV11, Pants: N3, N5, N7, N9, Shirt: B00, B41, B93, B95, Boots: E25, E47, E49.
Finally meet Little Frankie....that's the name that I gave him.  I thought he was so darn tootin' cute...with being so shy!

Copic Colors used on Frankie: Bolts: C1, C3, C5, C7, B93, Hair: E25, E31, E47, E49, Eyes: E97, YR12, YR18, Skin: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG99, YG0000, Shirt: V09, V15, V17, Jacket: N3, N5, N7, N9, Jeans: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99.

And finally one more view of my Little Edward card!  Again I hope you all have a Happy Halloween and get lots of treats!

WOC #35 - Santa is Coming to Town!

Hi Friends...I hope you had a great weekend!  My hubby and I spent the weekend in the big windy city...for those of you unfamiliar with the midwest that is Chicago, Illinois.  Saturday we spent the day in the city...going to Navy Pier, taking a double decker bus tour, and checking out the downtown area.  Sunday we went shopping at an outlet mall in one of the suburbs that we stayed by, and today we are heading back to the city for a convention for my hubby's work.  It definitely has been a fun weekend for us....minus the heater not working in our hotel room....oh well!

Today is another Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge day!  YAY!  I love Mondays for this reason!!!  Our challenge for you this week is SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN!  That means you need to use Santa Claus on your project/card!  Remember to head to the Wild Orchid Challenge Blog to double check the rules so that your project qualifies you for the fabulous project that is up for grabs! :)
For my card I have decided to make a shaped card this challenge!  This cute little Santa is from a Stampendous set that I have.  The shape of my card is made using the Marianne Design Creatable Die LR0112 Frame Circle.  I absolutely LOVE the shape this die gives.  I then cut out a SB circle and gathered lace behind it adhering the lace to the circle with Scor-tape.  Papers are from the Echo Park Holly Jolly Collection.
Santa was colored with Copics.  I added white flock to his beard, and Polar White Flower Soft (which is currently 15% off at SCACD) was used on the trim of his coat and hat.  Santa was then cut out using my SB Lables 14 and airbrushed while still in the die.
The beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts flower arrangement consists of 25mm Wild Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, 10mm Rose, 8mm Semi-opened Rosebuds, Gypsophilas, Red holly berry, and Silver Padded Snowflakes.  Flowers were glitzed up with my Diamond Stickles.
The edge around the red circle was blinged up with my Silver Stickles.  I hope you have enjoyed my Santa creation!  I can't wait to see your Santa Claus projects!

WOC #34 - Christmas Fun

YAY it's another WOC Challenge Day!  We have a super fun challenge for you this week....we want to see your Christmas Creations!  This week's challenge is Christmas Fun....create anything with a Christmas Theme!

Just a friendly reminder....in order to qualify for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge you need to follow the following rules:
1. You must use at least ONE Wild Orchid Craft product on your creation,
2. You may only enter TWO other challenges besides the Wild Orchid Crafts challenge (which means your WOCC entry may only be linked to a total of 3 challenges.), and
3. You must follow the challenge theme.
We thank each of you for entering our challenges, we look forward to seeing each and every creation.  We want you all to be included in the chance to win all the goodies! :)

For my card I have used the NEW Where on the Tree Peeker from the Holiday Peekers Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  I love her blank ornament....it leaves so much to the imagination.  I've decided to use a mini stamp and put the sentiment in the ornament...I have lots of other ideas circulating for this cutie too...so be on the look out for more fun with her!  Papers are from the Bo Bunny Blitzen Collection.
This Peeker was colored with Copics and my pastel pencils, she was cut out and popped up onto a paper doilie.  The top of the ornament and tag have been glitzed with 100 grit Silver German Glass Glitter....LOVE the sparkle to this glitter....like I've said before it's absolutely my FAVORITE glitter! If you haven't gotten any from Wild Orchid Crafts you really NEED to get some!
Wild Orchid Crafts flower arrangement consists of a large poinsettia (edged with 100 grit Silver German Glass Glitter) topped with a 30mm Wild Rose, small poinsettias topped with Sweetheart Blossoms (edged with 100 grit Red German Glass Glitter), 25mm Silver Padded Snowflakes, Gypsophilas, 8mm Semi-opened Rosebuds, White Stamens, and Red Holly Berries.  Arrangement was then finished off with two Pearl Swirls and some May Arts Ribbon.
Bow was made using my Bow Easy and then I added a 8mm Semi-opened Rosebud, and mini ringing bell.  These bells are so adorable, I {heart} them to pieces!  I think my hubby thinks I am weird as I was going around the house "ringing" my card! LOL!
Bottom right corner was accented with some gorgeous large Moonstone Brads.  These are so beautiful in real life and add an amazing colorful shine to the card!  Make sure you check out the different sizes in these beautiful Moonstones that Wild Orchid carries!
Hopefully from this picture you can see how dazzling the German Glass Glitter really is!  It's so hard to photograph....but really this stuff is AMAZING!
I hope you have enjoyed my creation!  Make sure you head over to the WOC Challenge Blog to see the other girls stunning Christmas creations!  I can't wait to see what you make for this Christmas challenge!

Copic Colors Used: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R02, Shirt & Hair band: G40, G82, YG45, B000, Pants: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, Hair: E31, E33, E35, YR20, Ornament: R08, R14, R17.

Welcome Fall

Happy October!  Are you all ready for fall....I know I'm sure not....I would much rather have warm weather....lol!  Fall means that the dreaded *S* word is on the way....for those who don't live in the upper part of the States that dreaded word is snow....blech!  But I do enjoy the holidays...so all in all it's not a bad time of year!  Plus with fall comes football..and since my team....The Green Bay Packers are the reigning Super Bowl Champs..watching the Packers play makes fall more fun!  Today I have a fun festive fall card to share with you!
Please meet Pumpkin Patch Peeker....she is one of the adorable NEW Peekers in the Holiday Peeker Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD!  Have you gotten your Peeker Fix yet?  You do know the ONLY way to cure Peeker Fever is to purchase your very own Peeker Stamp set, which you can get      -->HERE<-- at SCACD, or for my friends over the pond you can get them -->HERE<-- at Quixotic Paperie.  Papers for this beauty are Echo Park Apothecary Emporium Collection (which is 20% off now at SCACD)!
Pumpkin Patch Peeker was colored with Copics and my pastel pencils.  She was cut out using SB Labels 4 (which is 15% off now at SCACD) and while still in the die the sky and ground were airbrushed.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and arrangement consists of a 35mm Trellis Rose, NEW Carnations, 15mm Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Tulips, Gypsophilas, Gold Glitter Holly Berries, 15 mm Rose Leaf, 25mm Rose Leaf, and a Heart Pin.  I then added some black sparkly tulle to the ends of the arrangement.  Flowers have been glitzed with Diamond Stickles.
Check out the beautiful Guipure Lace.  Then I took some tan raffia ribbon and braided it for a fun edging above the lace.  The triple raffia bow was made using my Bow Easy and then a decorative metal corner was added for a finishing touch.
I hope you have enjoyed my fall creation!  Make sure you head over to the SCACD store to get your very own Pumpkin Patch Peeker....or better yet get the whole Holiday Peeker Set.  When you purchase the WHOLE Holiday Peeker Stamp Set you get 3 FREE mini stamps illustrated by SCACD's Co-DT Leader Carolyn!  Plus when you purchase the whole set you are saving a total of $6 or 20% off of purchasing each stamp individually.

Happy WCMD!

**Scroll down to see my SCACD Holiday Peeker Post**

Happy World Card Making Day 
to all of my crafty friends!  I hope that you all got some crafty time in today!  Today our friend is getting married so the below is the wedding card that I made for the new Mr & Mrs!
This card features the beautiful Kaisercraft After 5 Collection.  I was so excited when I found in my stash the SAME blue shimmery paper that the wedding invitation was made out of so I accented the Kaisercraft paper with the beautiful blue pearl shimmer paper.   Lace is from Wild Orchid Craft and was woven with some silver ribbon from my stash.  WOC also carries rhinestone swirls like the one in the bottom right corner.
Sentiment is from the Verve Love Story collection which was stamped on a cut out that comes with the Kaisercraft paper pad.  I edged it with Silver Stickles and layered on top of a SB Circle and then a SB Doilie Motiff.
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and arrangement consists of a 35mm Trellis Rose, 20mm Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, Babies Breath, Gypsophilas, and 5mm Rosebuds.  Flowers were sparklized with Diamond Stickles.  MS border was accented with 3mm self adhesive rhinestones.
And one more angle view!  I hope you have enjoyed my card for today....hard to believe I made another card without Copics!  LOL!

Happy Weekend to you all!
