RIP Mr. Bones

My sister loves skeletens so when I saw this latest die cut set by Tim Holtz, I had to get him. It's a doozy - lots of pieces to put together but I love how it came out and so did she! I added him onto some speckled paper and it made for a pretty easy card once I assembled all the pieces.

Pam's stocking

I love these stockings by Concord & 9th. They come with stitching although I did stitch Pam's name on the top without using their stitched part of the stocking. I figure since she has a short name, she gets a personalized stocking this holiday season. I made the background with tone on tone stamps.

Wishing You a Spectacular Halloween

These Tim Holtz pumpkins are sure fun to put together but have ALOT of pieces!! I cut apart a saying from Purple Onion Stamps to make it fit up and down on the side of the card and I used splattered cardstock for the background. Shiny black bat die cuts added by Impression Obsession. I made several versions of this card, some with bats, some without. 

Thought I would show off my pumpkin purse I found at Marshall's back in August. I saw it on the Fall/Halloween Facebook group and had to have it. I was shocked when I found it at my store. I also have a haunted house purse too!! I'll have to show that one off too later.

Ghost with family pictures on wall

I thought this was a fun scene to create and added a brick wall behind the main ghost.

Deck the Whales

I thought this was a cute card for our son's bonus kids who are 8 and 4 :).  They do call us "Grammy" and "Grampy".  I used a stencil for the oval die cut to make it look like water.

Christmas skiing and presents

The Greetery sure came out with a cute car set this year!! You can do so much with it and with this challenge being in brown and red, I knew I had to use it. For my birch trees, I chose this technique at Splitcoast to do it with my Distress Mica Stain in Crooked Broomstick which is the perfect shade of brown for this challenge. You can see it done here and it's very easy to do. All you need is an old credit card and some paint or ink to do some swiping of the trees. It's more like flicking side to side. So easy!! I decided to add some presents and some skiis to the back. Aren't they the cutest?

Manger scene in Embroidery Hoop

I love this new set by Concord & 9th. You can use it with stamps or just the stencils. This one I chose to use the embroidery hoop and then just stencil it on with no stamps. I have 25 cards made so far so I have a good head start on my cards this year. This one is really quick and easy to make.
