September Card Swap!

We just had our September Card Swap last week, this month we had a theme of Halloween.  I love Halloween!!  I love to decorate and make fun projects for Halloween.  I went a little crazy on this card but I love how it turned out!

Cardstock from my stash and watercolor paper
Stamps: Close to my Heart
ink: versamark and Black Soot Distress ink
Black and white embossing powder
Inktense pencils for coloring
Black fine tip marker
Googlie eyes
foam squares
shimmer spray (made with Perfect Pearls & water)

August Card Swap

I want to show you my card for my August Card Swap group.  Our theme for August was Fall or Thanksgiving.  I wanted to do a fall card because then you could use it for a thank you card as well. I really like the colors and how it all came together. 

The cardstock is from my stash and the paper is from Fancy Pants.  I used and old Stampin' Up stamp set for the leaves, heat embossed them in clear, brown and gold.  I also clear embossed a Stampin' Up background stamp on the blue cardstock.  The Sentiment is a stamp from CTMH enhanced with a bronze fine tip marker. I used the marker to add some dashed lines to the dark brown cardstock also.  The dashed lines on the sentiment circle are done with a brown fine tip marker.  I used tea dye distress ink with a blending tool for the shading.  

Soccer Team Treats!

I had to share what I made for the High School Girls Soccer Team!  All of us Soccer Moms are taking turns bringing a treat to the school on game days.  I delivered mine this morning, and I really like how they turned out and I hope the girls like them too!

The Soccer ball is a stamp that I heat embossed with black powder. I used a stamp from My Pink Stamper that says "You can do it!" in red ink from Stampin' Up.  I adhered them to a red circle punched from a 2 1/4" punch from EK Success and tied some tulle at the top. 


Thank you for stopping by, taking a peek, and leaving a comment or two!
