HAPPY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN!

Happy Halloween!

Just a few more days till the spooky event.  Today's image is by Tim Holtz, and it can also be used for Dia De Los Muertos cards.  I took the stamped images with me to Arizona, and colored them there.  Got cards made when we returned home.

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The die cut web in the upper left-hand corner is by Cheery Lynn.  DH and I were invited to visit the factory while we were in AZ, and the owner gave us the grand tour of the Cheery Lynn Factory.  It was amazing, and I found out that they also make all the dies for Memory Box, Poppy Stamp dies, My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, and more.  Nice to know that so many dies (although not all), are made in the USA.  So interesting to see the entire process.  I always thought the name of the company was Cherry Lynn....like Bing cherries.  LOL  It's Cheery Lynn.  They make some really nice dies.

Back to the card, the upper right-hand web and dangling spider are stamps from my Halloween stash.  I use…

CHRISTMAS WILL BE HERE SOON

Happy Weekend!

I was looking at the calendar today and realized Christmas is just a little over two months away.  Where has this year gone?  Today's card is one I made in a swap with friends, and this card was designed by Karen.  Thanks Karen!  Cute little penguin, igloo and falling snow embossing folder were used.  The stamps and embossing folder are Stampin Up.  I added an organza gray ribbon to finish it off.  Layered with black and gray card stock.  I added Stickles to the igloo ice blocks.





Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back later with another card. Hugs, Geri

A CARD FOR HUBBY

Image
Hi Friends,

Today's card is one that I made for hubby.  The image is a Welsh Terrier.....and our fur baby, Zoe.  She's spoiled rotten and has hubby wrapped around her little paw.  Really.  That's okay though, that's what fur babies are for...to love and spoil.

I used two different pieces of scrapbook paper from of my paper stash for the background and behind the doggie.  A Tim Holtz embellishment is in the lower right corner.  And to finish it off, I used a chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon that gathered and stitched.  Colored the image with Copics.  






Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back again with a new card.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Image
Hi Friends,

Today I'm sharing another Graphic 45 card.  I made this for a friend who without fail, sends us one of her beautiful handmade anniversary cards every year.  Always fun getting happy mail.

It was another fun card to make, and once again, made me think outside the comfortable box I'm usually in....fun to do something different once in awhile.  Lots of fussy cutting again, and layering of the different patterned papers.  The coral and greens were different than the colors I usually use.

Popped up the butterfly with foam tape, and added a row of pearl embellishments underneath the word anniversary.  Distressed the edges of patterned papers with Vintage Photo distress ink.
