Spooky Delights

This my submission for the DCWV Stack-aholic Challenge for October.  The challenge uses this sketch:

I used papers from the DCWV "Spooky Delights."   I fussy cut the spider  and fashioned flowers from the ghost circle design paper.  The flower sprigs were cut with a Memory Box die.

Help Me Celebrate!

On Wednesday, October 5th, I posted the news that I was published in the Autumn 2016 issue of The Stampers' Sampler.

My cards were published in one of my favorite features: Tempting Templates.  A new template is presented each month to challenge readers.  The template for this issue was a ladybug.  It is always so interesting to see all the submissions and unique designs created using the template.  

To share in my celebration Stampington is giving me a free copy of this issue of The Stampers' Sampler to share with one lucky reader of my blog and/or Facebook page.  My apology to my friends outside of the USA---The issue can only be shipped within the USA.

On Nov. 1st I will randomly choose the winner from a reader who posts a comment here on my blog or over on my Facebook page.

Autumn Kitty

The Dies R Us Challenge #58 is The Leaves on the Tree
I chose a Spellbinders label die on which to stamp my kitty as my focal point. I sponged the label's edges with copper Inka-Gold by Viva Decor. I added leaves cut with a Joy! Crafts die.  Added veins to the leaves with a gold Wink of Stella pen.  I also cut some floral sprigs cut with a Memory Box die.  I used a Darice embossing folder to create the tan background.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and added orange Stickles to the floral head lei.

Happy News! I've Been Published in The Stampers Sampler

I just received the news that four of my card designs were chosen to be published in the Autumn 2016 issue of The Stampers Sampler.  I haven't received my issue yet but I'm anxious to share my exciting news.  

The designs are all based on a "Tempting Template Challenge."  The template was a ladybug.  I used the actual template to create the Halloween card.  As luck would have it, I own a ladybug stamp and used it in the design of the other three cards.

Autumn Leaves

The Dies R Us Challenge #58 is The Leaves on the Tree.   I chose this wheelbarrow die from Die-namites as my focal point.  I added leaves cut with a Joy! Crafts die.  Added veins to the leaves with a gold Wink of Stella pen.  I used a Darice embossing folder to create the tan background.  I added an edging of gold with a Krylon pen.  Also added some gold cording and an Autumn sticker.

Hope you are enjoying the change of colors and cooler temps...Paulette

Blue Ribbon Pie

The Dies R Us Challenge #-57 is County Fair.  I used the Apron die from Die-namites, Circle Nestabilities from Spellbinders and Iron Works Accents for the scalloped circles.  The "1st" emblem is from a plastic button.  The pie and blue ribbon are popped up on Pop-Dots.  I also added a bit of lace to the apron.

DCWV September Stack-aholic Sketch Challenge

I made this Halloween card for the DCWV Stack-aholic Sketch Challenge for September.   This is this month's sketch:

I won a craft kit from DCWV designed by Lia Griffith called "Cupcake Spiders."  The kit includes die cut black spiders and white webs to decorate cupcakes.  The webs are wrappers and the spiders go on top of the frosting.  I added some rhinestone eyes to the spiders and added them as embellishments to my card.  The papers I used are all designs from DCWV's "Spooky Time" Stack.
