No Cracks

I just love this stamp. It is from Hambo stamps. Pretty simple card. The stamp is colored in with Copics. I used the gear cut from the Cricut Cartridge, Indie Art, for accent pieces.

Halloween Cards

I just purchased my first copic markers. Wow! I am having lots of fun practicing with them. Still have lots to learn but the video turtorials on youtube have helped a great deal. The bear with the pumpkin is a digistamp but I don't remember where I got it. If you recognize it, let me know so I can give credit where it is due. The cat is a stamp by Stamppassions that I picked up at a garage sale at my LSS several years ago.

Spooky Chandelier

I got the idea for this card one night while eating dinner in our dining room. I looked up and noticed a spider web on my chandelier. Spiders give me the creeps! The paper for this card is all from Basic grey. The spider and stars are foam stickers that were given to me last year for halloween. The spider web is made from the spider web material that you can use to decorate your house. I added mini rhinestones that I ordered off of ebay. They are for nail art and boy are they tiny!!!!

A Child's Year Snail Card

I just love my new cricut cartridge, A Child's Year! Every image is just adorable. Years ago I used to do Scherenschnitte, a german paper cutting craft. This cart makes using those types of cuts so much easier!!!
