I created a Halloween card with my daughter in mind. 
I used a Graphi 45 paper and kraft cardstock for this little cutie.  Graphic 45 is one of my favorite paper lines. 
I used a Tim Holtz distress tool to edge one of the 'cards.'   I also added Black Diamond Stickles and highlighted with a Spica pen.

Get Inky Stamp Challenge

Happy Wednesday!
Today is my day to post on the Get Inky Stamps blog with a bit of inspiration for our current challenge which is.........
Use Buttons on a Halloween Card.
Here is my take..............
Don't you love it??  I do!!  :-D
I used Teresa Collins' new Masquerade Party Paper Collection.   The week that I created this project, Cricut also had the Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cartridge free.  I used my Cricut Craft Room and the TC cartridge to create the witch and '31.'   For the witch, I added Black Diamond Stickles. 
Now for the buttons...I added two.  The orange button with a bit of twine...and if you can believe it, the spider web is a button. 
To finish of the card, I used Get Inky's Halloween Stamp set for the sentiment and the witch hats. 

I used Memento Tuxedo Black in to stamp the image/sentiment.  For a touch of sparkle, I traced the ink with a spica pen. 
Be sure to head over to the challenge blog and link up your creation.
Happy Haunting!

Button Bonaza Blog Hop

Welcome to the Button Bonanza Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

Buttons are fabulous embellishments to all types of craft projects, and what better than to spruce them up with some Stickles?!

 If you have just come across the hop and are looking to start at the beginning, please visit All that Stickles! If you've come from the All that Stickles' blog, you're in the right place.

Here's my creation...............

I created a box using a file from Silhouette.  I had some fall leaf buttons that I thought were perfect for the box. 

I tied a bit of twine in each button.  Then using Tombow liquid glue, I adhered them along the edge of the box. 

I outlined the leaf cutout in the lid with new Burgundy Stickles. 

I created the tag by outlining the leaf cutout in my Sil software.  After cutting, I layered the cutout and the shadow.  The tag was tied to the top of the box after placing some eyelets in the top and the tag for the twine placement.  I outlined the tag with Golden Rod Stickles.

Since I tend to keep EVERYTHING, I used a Peachy Keen Stamp envelope as a barrier for the cutout.  It worked perfectly! 

We have blog candy for those who are a follower of All that Stickles and leave a comment on every stop of the hop! Winners will be announced Wednesday October 23rd at All that Stickles.

All that Stickles Linky Party

Happy Saturday!
It's time for another linky party at All that Stickles.
This party's theme is......
Here's my creation...............
The day I cut the banner pieces, Cricut had the TC Chic & Scary cartridge for free use in Cricut Craft Room.  The letters were cut from that cartridge from black cardstock.  The base papers are from Teresa Collins' Masquerade Party pack.   Once assembled, I added Black Diamond Stickles to the letters.   The sparkles make the letters pop when hung on the mantel. 
 Close up of the sparkle on the letters.

A Halloween Bow

Happy Thursday!
I have a quick share with you before we head out to watch our daughter perform on the dance team. 
This little creation was inspired by two things...the first: Peachy Keen Stamps - October Release Challenge #2 and second: my little girl who loves Halloween. 
I used a file from the Sil store to create my bow.  I added a Peachy face, a bit of highlights, and Stickles.    I think it's just darling, don't you?

Peachy Keen Photo Challenge

Peachy Keen's challenge theme this week is a photo inspiration.

I used the colors of the photo and the theme of fall as my inspiration. 
I used my favorite Peachy Keen Stamp set PKSC-09.  For the sentiment, I used SY-907.

Peachy Keen Stamps Release

Happy Sunday!
It's Peachy Keen Stamps Release time...and you know what that means! 
Challenge #1 is to create a Halloween project using 2 colors. 
Here's my take......
The patterned papers are from Ehco Park's Chillingsworth Manor collection.  The cardstock is Core'dinations. 
The two images are from Peachy Keens Stamps set PKSC-09.  I love, love, love this stamp set.  I use it ALL the time.  :-)

Peacy Keen - "Just A Recipe"

Happy Wednesday!
It's a B-E-A-U-tiful fall day here in the upper Midwest.  Enjoying it tremendously! 
On this lovely day I wanted to share with you my PKS challenge creation.  This week's theme is "Just Cards: Can I Have That Recipe?"
I am a mother of many.  :-)  So when I think of recipes, I think of my kids.  And one recipe that we were exposed to when we first moved up here a number of years ago was Puppy Chow.  In the South, we never eat it.   It was all barbeque and sweet tea.  ;-) 
I used three PKS stamp sets, PKSC-21PKSC-20,  and PKSC-04.  I'm not extremely happy with the way my puppy's head turned out in the picture.  But I don't think I'm ever happy with my coloring.  :-)
I added some liquid pearls in Hot Cocoa.  The papers are from a DCWV Halloween/Fall stack. 
For the details on the inside of the card, I merged to files in my Silhouette Cameo.  The paw prints are just darling, aren't they?
