Melonheadz - Halloween

For this week's Melonheadz challenge, you can choose 1) Halloween or 2) use green, orange, black and purple colors or 3) both! I did two cards for this challenge, because I really love making Halloween projects. Hope you like!

First is a spinner/slider card. Super fun and easier than it looks.

Up next is a Halloween party invitation. I used the Witches Clothesline set for this one.

If you look closely you can see I added sparkle pen to the dress.

Hope you'll join us! See you in the gallery.

OCC Wild Card Class, Day 5 - Gift Giving

For today's Online Card Class I wanted to make something a little different than a normal gift card envelope. Don't get me wrong, I love all the gift card envie dies that I do have, but just wanted a different version I guess. Anyway, here is my project for today's class. This adorable little gift bag by My Creative Time is super sweet and can be used in many ways, not just for gift cards, even though it is small.

You can get a better perspective of the cute bitsy size in this closer-up view of the gift card. Fun project!

OCC Day 3, pop ups

To make my pop up card for today's Wild Card Class, I used adorable images from My Creative Time. Because the inside is where I want the focus, I did a very simple front design.

Cobblestone stamp by Bo Bunny.

The mummy is just too cute for words, and I love the sign post.

OCC Day 2, Movement

Today's class is all about cards with movement. I made this slider card for grandboy, Logan's, birthday. He's obsessed with zombies and this cute Peachy Keen zombie kid is perfect! :)

The bats are My Creative Time, the graveyard is a Quickutz border die, and the slider opening is My Favorite Things.

I stamped "pull" in tiny letters from a My Creative Time alpha set after I took the pics. Inside says simply, "happy birthday" but on the back I stamped Got Brains? from another Peachy Keen stamp. LOL The sentiment on the front is also Peachy Keen.

Copic markers, foam tape, clear embossing powder, circle punch

Melonheadz Autumn Challenge

For my autumn challenge project, I made this fall banner which will hang across my front door wreath. I altered the acorn from the Season Fall digi set in Cricut Design Space and embellished with letters and banner shapes cut on my Cricut machine.

I wanted a little something extra to help the letters stand out, so I stamped a variety of tiny fall shapes on them and heat embossed. I cut each of them 5 times and stacked them with foam tape between.

 For texture and interest, I used burlap, jute twine, and buttons, and added fall leaf die cuts.

MFT Card Design Superstar Contest 2016

I'm so excited to share my first entry for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar Contest. (See rules here.) I used quite a few different MFT sets for this fairly simple design. The word "give" was printed from computer as I didn't have a stamp that worked.

For the gate, I wanted a woodgrain-ish look, but don't have a woodgrain stamp or embossing folder by MFT. So, I improvised and literally dragged my ink pad over the paper before cutting out the shape. I think it worked out pretty well.

And, of course, I HAD to add foam tape because that's how I roll. Gotta have that dimension.

Product list:
My Favorite Things inks: black licorice, chocolate bar, kraft
My Favorite Things dies: inside and out diagonal rectangle STAX, sunflower sweetheart, fall friends
My Favorite Things stamps: written in watercolor, so much love, sunflower sweetheart, happy hedgehogs, fall friends
Copic markers, foam tape, cardstock

Melonheadz Friends Challenge: Hand colored image

This week's new challenge is up. Use your talents to hand-color an image for your project and join us!! I used copics but you can use any medium you like to color your image. Have fun and show us what you created by linking to the gallery. You could be this week's winner!

I used the wheelbarrow from the Season Fall set and "filled it" with the apples that were in the barrel, also in this digi set. I love taking images and modifying them to create new ones. Check out the digi sets I used in the Melonheadz store linked above.

Glossy accents make the apples look extra delicious! :) The sign post is a Cricut image, and the grass was cut using dies by My Favorite Things.

Product List:
Melonheadz Illustrating, Season Fall digi set
My Favorite Things, grass border dies
My Creative Time, Piles of Smiles (5¢ stamp)
Copic markers, glossy accents, foam tape, Cricut image and cutter

My Favorite Things, Sketch #296

Here is my entry for this week's sketch challenge for My Favorite Things, Card Challenges. It may not look like it by this fairly simple sketch design, but I used a LOT of different stamps and dies for this one!

Starting with the papers, both are by My Favorite Things; Plaid Patterns and Tranquil Textures. The sentiment is from two stamp sets - "Hello" is from the Forest Friends stamp set; I had to dig a little to find a "fall" word in the size I needed, and that one word is the only thing I used that is not by MFT, other than the markers for coloring.

You may have noticed the cross stitching on the center panel. That is from the Basic Stitch Lines die set. The sentiment box is a piece cut from Blueprints #29.

The pumpkins are from the Harvest Mouse set and the super cute cart is from Sunflower Sweetheart.
