Happy Halloween Friends!

I meant to have this posted for Halloween, but you know how life gets in the way of blogging.  I used a really old stamp I had in my Halloween box for the window image.  If you look closely at the third pic, you can see the little ghost, scary tree face and spider.  The background big web is by Hero Arts.  The window die cut is by Memory Box, and the green spider web border is a Martha Stewart punch.  

Rarely do I get to use the bright lime green card stock, but Halloween is the perfect time to use it with purple.  The inside of the card (sorry, forgot to have hubby photograph that), has a little ghost attached to the word Boo!  A glitterly bat from with googly eyes sits on the top of the winow frame.  The bat sticker is from Michael's.

Mr Tree is having a very bad hair day!  lol

I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween!  Better go get our candles lit at the candy table and wait for the little ghosts and goblins to get he…

Quoth the the words of Edgar Alan Poe

Hi Friends,

To quote Edgar Alan Poe would take too much typing, so I'll just use the title.  The Raven card was a quick and easy card.  The design was shared by Liane Ceglar.  Thanks, Liane!  The stamp is by Stampendous.  Layered with orange and black card stock.  The hat has a bit of Copic coloring, then orange and black Stickles finishes it off.  Add a few sequins, and all done.

Here's a close-up of the blingy Stickles and sequin.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll be back soon with another card.  Until next time....

Good to the Last Bite

Hi Friends!

Today's post is a Halloween card.  Stamps are by Stampin Up, and the card idea was shared by Karen Kurz.  Isn't it cute?  I just love the bling that SU sells, it's very sparkly.  Take a look at the little vampire's eyes....bling!  The "Good to the Last Bite" is stamped on a tag and backed with orange card stock.  The bottom diamond design on the card was black & white, then colored in with SU's new alcohol markers.  Happy Halloween stamped on an orange ribbon tied a bit below the center of the card.  Quick and easy card to make.

Close-up of the blingy eyes....spooky!

Look at the inside of the card....creepy spider.  :o)

Ms. Snottie - A Goth theme

Hi Blog Friends!

So our stamp group decided that for October our theme would  be "Goth."  Well, I had one stamp that I bought a very long time ago that I thought would work for Goth.  Her name is Ms. Snottie!  The name is on the wood block by Stampotique.  LOL  Anyway, I stamped her, colored her with a very light skin color....that is Goth-like, right?  Embossed a flourish above her head with silver embossing powder, and stamped some swirly designs at the bottom of the card.  Added a few dots too.  It's kinda hard to see, but I added a tiny flower to the bottom left hand corner, and covered it with tulle.  Her face is also covered with tulle netting.  The backgound stamp of twigs and birds is by Penny Black.  Embossed the bottom black piece with a Cuttlebug folder.  This one was a challenge for me because I'd never done a Goth theme before.  I added a strip of rhinestones under the main image (you can see them better in the bottom pic).  To me...she's spooky..I th…

House Mouse ~ Happy Anniversary

Happy Weekend Blog Friends!

Today's post is an image by House those little critters.  Colored the image with Copics, and used different patterned black and white scrapbook papers for the background and banners.  Background and banners backed with black card stock.  Added the Happy Anniversary sentiment, used dimensional foam tape on it to pop it up a bit....then all done.

I hope you all are having a beautiful fall weekend.  The weather during the day is perfect, although I know it won't be long before the dreaded cold weather arrives.  Have a good one! can "click" on pics to make bigger

I'm sneaking in a pic hubby took of our beautiful Cosmos!

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I'll be back next week with something new.  Until next time...

Piper's Paper Wings Blog is 2 Years Old Today!

Hi Blog Friends!

Today my blog is two years old!  Happy two-year Birthday!  So, in honor of celebrating the blog's birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to post a birthday card.  Actually, this card went to our daughter-in-law, Yvette for her special day.  

The image is by Stamping Bella.  She has wonderful whimsical stamps.   I colored the birthday girl with Copics, and used a Spellbinder's die around the image.  The Happy Birthday die cut is from Sizzix.  Flowers are from my stash, and the greenery behind the flowers is a Martha Stewart punch.  I used another daisy-looking flower punch to place a little white flower in the middle of the pink flowers.   Stickles on the bottom hem of the dress and on her headband.  I borrowed the polka dot idea from my friend an fellow blogger Tracy.....thanks Tracy!!!  Love the polk dots.  I can tell you, I had so much fun making this card.  

Thanks to all of you who follow Piper's Paper Wings!  I very much appreciate those of you who …

My Angel has been published in Stamper's Sampler Magazine!

Hi Blog Friends,

I'm excited to let you know that I've been published in Stampington's Stamper's Sampler magazine!  Our group guru, Lydia Carroll coordinated the submissions for the "Angel Template" magazine challenge.  Thank you, Lydia! 

So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy looking at the submissions. 

The angel I submitted was named by Stamper's Sampler staff and is called "The Gate Keeper" the name.  I'm sure she was given that name because the angel has a set of keys hanging from a gold thread around her waist.  

I used a Hampton Arts stamp for her face, colored with Copics.  Behind her face I glued on a black flower I had in my flower stash.  Her dress is washi paper with gold embossing on it.  For her wings, I used the Tim Holtz wings die, then I ran them thru a Cuttlebug domino embossing folder.  Lightly brushed the top part of the embossed wings with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  I tied two gold key charms on gold thread and…
