More and More Halloween!

And a sketch challenge you can still play along with :).   Recently I came across this blog for sketch challenges called I spy Sketches,  There sketches are creative and inspiring.   They are posted on Friday, (which works perfect for me) and you have all week to upload your card.  

So for my other niece I created a card for her using this sketch.  And of course I used my new favorite stamp set from There She Goes Clear Stamps- Hauntingly Delightful.

So take a look and play along!

Mojo Monday 263

More Halloween!   I had so much fun with this  Mojo Monday Sketch.  Of course I always wait to the last minute to do their sketches because most of my crafting is done on the weekend and they post their new sketches on Monday.  So generally I have to wait all week till I can get in my craft room and create something.  The good news is it gives me all week to think about, the bad news is if my followers wanted to play along  it doesn't give you all much time to do so.    However a new sketch is posted each and every Monday so tomorrow check out what new fun layout they post and join along.  Hopefully you wont be a last minute Lucy like me :).

Ok so for the card.... I made this card for one of nieces for Halloween.  I recently purchased a new product called Perfect Pearls Mist and decided to give it a whirl.  As you can see I sprayed in on the black half circle.   I love the shimmer effect and definitely gonna play with it some more.  Especially for Christmas cards.

Recently and finally I just purchased this stamp set from The She Goes Clear Stamps.  This stamp set is so hot that every time I went to purchase it, it was sold out.  It took me almost a year to get-LOL.  Its called Hauntingly Delightful,  and little guys are so cute!

I also did a technique using MFT Wonky Scallop Border and SU Perfect Plum ink to make clouds.  So so easy.  I learned of this technique a while back. However at the time I made a circle cardboard die cut  to get the cloud effect.   Of course using the MFT diecut this time around made it so much easy and more detailed.

Oh and don't you just love the eyeballs I gave my mummy and bats.  Yup I had fun with this one.

Happy Halloween!

This is such a fun time of year and may I mention my favorite time of year.  I love seeing all the creativeness that come out of people  with crafting, costumes and decorating.

So speaking of......  I know it's been a while since I have posted, but rest assure I have been crafting away.   I even had a little helper.  My second cousin Ms. Brianna.  I get to spend some time with this cutie on the weekends and we have been having tons of fun. 

 Brianna wants to be a butterfly for Halloween, so this was a trial run for her face,  I am going to try and duplicate this for Halloween,  wish me luck.

So let me show you some of the projects my trusty lil assistant and I have created :).

Bri and I created this for her class room.  Very cute banner and mostly done with Diecuts, of course all from MFT.

Candy and candy holders!.   First  the vellum bag is embossed with one of my favorite patterns-chervon.  This is perfect for a little treat.  And secondly yes that is chocolate in that paper jar.  Isn't that jar so clever?  This a diecut from SU and all we did was use our oval punch to punch out the window to see the chocolate.

Well thanks for stopping by I have a few more posts coming up with Halloween tricks and treats.
