Halloween cards

I'm under the weather but wanted to share some of the cards I made for Halloween.  

 Simple background created with distress inks and then image and greeting stamped with archival ink.

 This cat is a Dustin Pike digistamp that I love, I couldn't figure out what to do with him till I walked into a spider web on my front porch!  I fussy cut him out, created a spider web with my embossing folder and then went over it with silver ink,  I added the creepy spider at the bottom!

Simple card but I like it.  A shimmery black cardstock, a yellow moon, witch and bat die cuts!  I love that witch die!

 This card was made for a special little girl!  Her parents sent us the video of her saying it was a boo bear!  She's precious!  Another fussy cut and layer on a Halloween background stamp.

Another cool spider web this time it's a die cut.  Really simple card, but I love the detail on the web!

That's it for now.  I hope you have a magickal Halloween, Samhain or whatever you celebrate!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday #490

What a mess!!!  On the left is my desk, I'm scurrying to finish some Halloween/Samhain cards to get in the mail.  On the right, ugh.  We had to take the stuff out of my drawers to add another drawer to each unit.  My hope had been I could get all my wood stamps in the upper drawers.   No beuno.  So now I'll have to buy an Alex cart from Ikea for those.  I'm also waiting on another Ikea item to put all my dies and embossing folders in.  I've found it too much of a pain to dig into those deep drawers for those!

Now off you go to the Stamping Ground to see what Julia and the gang of merry deskers are up to!

A few of you wanted to see pictures from my recent trip to the Outer Banks, if you'd like there are a few below!

 I'm a fan of sunrises at the beach!

 Working on getting action shots of waves.

 The very crowded beach lol, the weather was in the 80's the water was almost 80 as well.

 The Spanish mustangs that roam free.

 They are stunning!

 They come right into your yard!

 Pelican shadows on the water.

 Doggies in the clouds.

 More stunning sunrise pictures.

 A beautiful sky.

 Sunrise after the storm.
 Even my dogs love the sunrises!  This is Tucker taking it in.

And here's Cooper basking in the morning glow!

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday #489

Happy Wednesday one and all!!!  We have just returned from our fall holiday to the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina.  The weather was spectacular, the scenery breathtaking and the wild mustangs are stunning!  However, you aren't here for that, your here for what's in the picture above!

While I was playing on the beach my box of Tim Holtz holiday goodies arrived from the Funkie Junkie.     Linda has wonderful prices and her customer service is top notch!  So what did I get well starting on the left, a splat box, ornament, birch tree, and a moose die.  A poinsettia embossing folder, a watercolor poinsettia stamp set, a set of Vintage greetings and a snow edge stencil.  Now to get to creating with my new goodies!

That's it from here, off you go to the Stamping Ground to see what other deskers are up to!

A Little Different

So I had the dandelions already cut out when I was going through my stash of stuff for cards.  I did a quick sketch in my book so I'd remember the design that was dancing in my head.  I think it's a neat idea for a birthday card!  It's not the typical candle make a wish thing so I think that's pretty cool!  Again I used browns I don't know why it just appealed to me for this card.

So that's it from my birthday creative session for now.  I never make two of the same card, I just can't do it lol!

Till next time!

Masculine Birthday

This two shades of brown are for some of the men in my life.  I don't do a lot of brown anything so these were a little bit of an out of the box thing for me.  I like how they turned out though and I won't miss my friends birthday ever again!
