Spooky Halloween Easel Card

Went shopping at the Silhouette store and found this fun Halloween easel style card cutting file.  Used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out of AC cardstock.  Assembled all pieces then added some googley eyes and a ribbon with bats and cats on it.  Bat was attached with pop dots for extra dimension.

You are sew special

Working on another package of cards for the chidrens charity.  I picked this fun kitty image from 2 Cute Ink because it always makes me smile and I hope the kids will too.  Colored with Copics.  Punched flowers and dots for the centers with EK Success Punches.  Printed saying and cut out with my paper trimmer.  Machine stitched with zig zag pattern around edges. Print paper is from The Paper Studio Basics Pack.  It has white stitched lines in the pattern which ties in nicely with the sewing theme of the card.

Hope you have a MOO-velous day!

Love this cute little cow from Bugaboo.  Colored her with Copics and cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities square die.  Added some ribbon, punched flowers and pearls.  Made the pink polka dot paper in my graphics program and printed on my inkjet printer for a softer look.

Merry Christmas To Ewe...

This is one of my all time favorite Christmas digis to make cards with.  It's called Merry Christmas to Ewe from Bugaboo.  Cut out image and saying with Spellbinders dies.  Added some punched snowflakes and a "ice cycle" border made with MS drippy goo punch.  Applied glitter glue to the hat so it's very sparkly.

This adorable little kitty is called Cat in Fall by Digi Darla.  I colored him with Copic markers and cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies.  Was able to use up a lot of let over scraps of fall papers from last year using the fun sketch from Card Crafters Circle.
