A Challenge Just For Fun

This week's challenge over at For Fun Challenges is to create a Halloween card using any of your favorite Halloween colors except orange. At first I though this would be a tough one but I though on it a while...it's not difficult at all! I made a card for this challenge using shades of black, gray, white and red. The spider web and spider are from Cricut's mini cartridge October 31st. It's soooo cool! Lots of really spooky images. For the word "Boo" I painted some chipboard and then melted some empossing powder right over the paint then randomly glued on some glitter. The drippy blood is red velvet and punched out with a Martha Stewart border punch. I added some black tulle ribbon with some awesome little metal roses and there you have it....my non-orange Halloween card! Make sure you hop on over to For Fun Challenges to see what the other ladies came up with. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday, it's challenge time!

This week's challenge at For Fun Challenges is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. The lucky winner will receive 3 images of their choosing so why not give it a shot? What is the challenge, you ask? Create a project using the colors of red, brown and cream. I love this color combinations, don't you?
The card I made uses one of the images that I think is so appropriate for this time of year. I added a lot of Stickles just to give a little fall sparkle. The rest is pretty self explanatory...plenty of leaves, some of my favorite brown polka dot paper and a Cuttlebugged red background. The image was colored with copics and cut out using a Nestie. That's it! Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!

A Spooktacular Challenge

This week over at For Fun Challenges we're having fun with Halloween. That's it...pretty easy huh? There's just so much cool Halloween stuff out there. Don't you just love it all? My card was one that I made for the  The Stamping Boutique Digi Day a couple of weeks ago. I think the image is just adorable. I added some candy corn brads from HL and threw on some super cute orange polka dot ribbon. Really pretty simple. Make sure to stop by For Fun and check out the other creations....they're Spooktacular! (sorry couldn't help myself) Hope you like the card and thanks so much for stopping by!

Old is New

This week's For Fun Challenge is to make a card using something that you bought or acquired somewhere somehow but never used. Come on...we've all got those things, right? Well, I know I do and here is what I came up with. I used some fabulous DP from Creative Imaginations that I've had in my stash for a while. I also used Just Rite's DIY Monogram Stamper Kit that I have never used and now that I've discovered how easy it is to use will definitely create several of these cards to have around for a quick card...super easy! I also used the Classic Scalloped Squares Large Nesties that I've had for quite some time but have never used. Wow....that's three unused items that I had in my stash....COOL! Why don't you hop on over to the For Fun Challenge blog and see what the other gals came up with and dig into those piles and use something that's old but new. Hope you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by!

Boo to You!

Quick post today. Wanted to share a Halloween card I made for the last Digi Day over at SNR for The Stamping Boutique. I have several so I will sprinkle a few in over the next week or so. I think this one is my favorite. I have always loved these types of images.....they're just so fun. I colored this image with Copics and sprinkled some flower soft on the monster feet to make them fuzzy....added some glitter to the witches boots and used some crystal effects on those funky yellow boots. I cut out some dots and popped some of them up for some added dimension and there you have it....a fun Halloween card. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
