For this card:

I cut my cardstock base and ink blended it with distress ink.  After that I die cut the dripping goo and adhered it to the top of my card base.  Then I die cut the circle moon and adhered that to the card base.  After that I stamped the sentiment using the hybrid ink.  Then I stamped and masked all of the pumpkins and faces.

Super simple and easy!!

Hello everyone,  I’m here today with So Suzy Stamps October 2015 Blog Challenge.


Check out my card:

Halloween (SSS)

I just love how that background turned out!!  I’m not use to making background but I wanted to give this a try and I’m so glad I did!!

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. I cut out a circle mask and adhered it to the card front so that I could blended Distress Ink Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves together to create the night sky.IMG_5380
  2. Then I used Heidi Swap Star Stencil and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink and added some stars in the sky.
  3. Then I used WPlus9 Shimmer Spray Mist to add shimmer dimension in the sky.
  4. After that I stamped So Suzy Stamps Safest Day Stamp Set using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  5. Then I stamped the So Suzy Stamp Halloween Cat using the same Hybrid Ink .
  6. Then I used the Hybrid Ink to add color to my Unique Laser Deisgns Halloween Mini Chipboard and adhered it within my moon.

It might look hard, but it was the easiest card I could have created!!

So what do you think?  Please let me know below!!

CASology 163: Moon

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card for you!!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 163 - Moon

Take a look at my card:

Brighter because of you (CAS)

I have to be very honest with all of you.  I had no clue what I was going to do with this cue card becasue I do not have any stamp sets with a moon.  I really struggled with this cue.  Then I remembered I had a paper pack with a moon in it and then the light bulb went off.  LOL!!!!

All I did was die cut the moon out of the paper and adhered it to my card front and stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant Bling Stamp Set with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

For more inspiration, check out my fellow Design Team members blog for more awesome work.
