Spooky….Boooo!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the DoubleClick Spooky Fun Challenge!!  I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  I’m not a Halloween person but I get into the spirit for my children… no one loves a grouch.

So for this challenge, I turned to my 8 year old daughter, Little Lady Sanaa!!  She helped me put this card together.  She saw a  design on Pinterest and loved it.

This challenge asked us to use at least 2 colors: orange, black, purple or green!

She said mom let’s use all of the colors!  I said no problem.

Take a look at our card:

Booo

Isn’t this cute!!  My daughter and I make a great team, I have to say.  My daughter loves the Wink of Stella pen, so I’m so surprised that she didn’t want to put glitter on this card.  I guess when she saw the googly eyes, she forgot all about the glitter, LOL!!

So here is how we made this card:

1. The base card was cut to 4.25 x 5.50 out of Stampin’ Up! Old Olive card stock.

2. We used Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Embossing Folder to emboss only one quarter of the cardstock.

3. We then cut a 2.75 piece of Stampin’ Up! Sweet Taffy DSP and added it to the left of the polka dots.

4. Then we add a scrap piece of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black card stock between the DSP and the polka dots.

5. We used a piece of orange bakers twine I received as a part of some happy mail packaging to tie a bow at the top of the card.

6. They we cut out two circles.  The larger one from Stampin’ Up! Circles Framelits Die out of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black CS and the smaller one from Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banner Die out of Stampin’ Up! Rich Razzleberry CS.

7.  We used the smaller splats stamp from Stampin’ Up Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set and stamped the Rich Razzleberry stitched circle.

8.  We stamped the mummy from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Googly Ghouls.

9. I fussy cut the mummy out and pop him up on the circle die using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

10. We stamped the sentiment and cut it out using Stampin’ Up! Bitty Banners Die.

11. My daughter added the googly eyes to the mummy and the eyes in the sentiment.

12. We then added our Pumpkin Skittles for added embellishments.

Now our card is finished!!  We had a great time creating this card.

So what do you think?  Let us know. My daughter would love to hear from you.

We are entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge as well!!

2. I embossed my card panel with Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.

3. I stamped my birds and tree branch from Lawn Fawns Winter Sparrows.  I colored my birds with Copic markers: Body C5 and their accessories BG34.

5. I attached the tree branch and the birds with foam adhesive.

6. I used Lawn Fawn Joy die and cut out three of them from white card stock and one from Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather pattern paper.

7. I stacked them together using Tombo Mono Adhesive.

8. I added it to my card panel.

9. I added Stampin’ Up! Whisper White bakers twine to the right side of the card panel.

That was easy!!

Second Post for the Day

If your looking for the a2z Scrapbooking Design Team Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with CASology Week 117.  The theme is CANDY!!  I love this theme.

Week 117 - Candy

I haven’t played with them in such a long time.  I really miss being apart of the different challenges.  I’m really going to make a big effort to participate more.

So, onto this challenge.  Candy!!  When I saw the cue card, I smiled because candy is such a perfect cue, since Halloween is on the way.  In my thinking, I felt like everyone would do a Halloween theme and as you know, I try to be as different as possible.

My mind went straight for the new stamp set that I just order and received from Newton’s Nook Designs called Apple Delights.  I ordered this set because of the “Candy Apple”!!  Perfect!!!  This set came right on time.

Take a look at my card:

Candy Apple

Candy Apple closeup

Can you see the shimmer on that caramel!!!  It makes me want a candy apple!!  I might have to go over to Coney Island today to get one.  I know the perfect store.

In any case, what do you think of my card?  Does it fit the criteria for CAS?  I think so.

Let me know what you think?
