WOW 2 posts in one day! the mailman brought me presents today!!! i got Indie Art, Home Decor, and Jubilee DIRT CHEAP online the other day...wait, i ordered Friday WHOA they shipped FAST!!! but i digress........

i just HAD to play with Indie Art immediately, and here's what i came up with...the skull is cut at 3 inches and shadowed...i ran black Core'dinations cardstock through my cuttlebug in the Diamond plate Embossing folder and then sanded it and distressed the edges...i used my trusty dymo for the sentiment...and voila! card done!

hope your week is off to a great start!

1 Stamp 2 different looks

hi peeps! so... my newest obsession is the Magic Colored Pencil Technique using prismacolor pencils to color in the image, and Odorless Mineral Spirits to blend the turns out so pretty, and is super fun to do! i got this ADORABLE stamp in the mail from and i thought hmmmm i'll make a "springy" card and a "fally" card...and here's what i came up with....funny how changing the colors make such a huge difference! for the "fally" card i used my "Doodlecharms" cricut cartridge and cut out a lil' pumpkin at 1 1/4 inches three times to get the layers...then i did a lil' doodlin' on it and stamped the face (also a peachykeen stamp)...added some chalk and a pop dot and added it to the stamp to cover up the "springy" butterfly ;o)

i hope you all have a scraptastic weekend!


p.s. thanks again to for featuring my halloween cards on their site! it's a huge honor! ;o)
