new Fusion card challenge

It's been awhile since I joined in with one of the card challenges at Fusion. but I joined in for this week's Christmas inspired challenge.   Here's the challenge - to use either the sketch, the inspiration photo, or both.

I went with the sketch as my inspiration and kept this very simple with just a snowflake and sentiment.  The snowflake was stamped in blue and then embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder and then I added a sequin and rhinestone center.

Stamps: Cas-ual Fridays (snowflake) and Neat & Tangled (sentiment).  Ink: Catherine Pooler

Seriously cute

This page was for a challenge at Paper Issues' Fall Crop - to use black, white, and one other in this case, for the photo of my youngest granddaughter!  I used my Cricut for the daisy and the title.

a reindeer Merry Christmas

Another Christmas card is ready to go!  This card was made for a challenge at Creative Inspiration and also for the November challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

This card uses an older Hero Arts stamp set called Christmas Reindeer.  I stamped the reindeer with Momento Tuxedo Black ink (stamping them partially off the cardstock) and then colored with Copic markers.  I added some silver stamped snowflakes and used Ranger white enamel accents for some little snow drops.  The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts stamp set and it was stamped with Lawn Fawn Lobster ink.  I just love these funny little reindeer!

The amazing Spiderman

My oldest grandson is really into Spider-Man these days.  He loves all the Marvel superheroes but Spidey is his favorite.  We got him this Spider-Man costume a couple of weeks before Halloween, and he wore it so much it was almost worn out before trick or treat came around!

I used the November 1st sketch from Stuck?! sketches for this layout.

from Bruce Banner to the Hulk!

I didn't get much scrapping done during October and didn't even take many pictures, but I did get several of the grandkids on Halloween.   This is my youngest grandson, who loves the Hulk.  However, he had just as much fun taking off his mask and being Bruce Banner, LOL! 
Based on a sketch from Paper Issues .

Gingham and holly Christmas card

I ordered a few of the new Tim Holtz Christmas stamps and mini stencils a couple of weeks ago and got to try a couple out on this card.  The background was stamped with Hero Arts shadow ink.  I mixed some embossing paste with sage green perfect pearls and used that with the embossing stencil over the stamped background. 

I added the kraft and white ribbon and a small stamped tag with twine.  This is a more muted color scheme than I normally use for Christmas cards, but I kinda like it.  Love that background stamp and think it will be very versatile!

Halloween time!

I love Halloween - the spooky movies, fun decorations, cool weather, not to mention all that candy, LOL!   I try to add a few new Halloween decorations every year.  These are some of the items I made this year, using my Cricut.  The coffin is an SVG file from Dreaming Tree, and all the other items are Cricut images.  The wreaths are grapevine wreaths, wrapped in tulle or black plastic sprays, and ribbon.
