Last Minute She-Devil

For this week's Farm Fresh Monday Challenge, it was to use Black, White and one other color. I choose red to go w/ my new-to-me She Devil Anya digi. I colored her up in copics. Then I die cut a scalloped frame in some sparkly red paper and added a bit of sparkle smooch over her dress and devil horns. The sentiment is obviously my current favorite halloween senti from my PI Little Witch set.

The Dets:
TGF She Devil digi, MFT PI Little Witch sentiment
Paper: MB notecard, PTI pure poppy, MME Mischievous, red glitter paper
Ink: Copics, Stardust pen, Versafine black

Spy-Friday Hallo Witch

I really {heart} halloween cards. I think its the pretty papers and fun stamps, plus the optionalness of it all. No one really expects a hallos card right? Not like a christmas card. So anyway, for this halloween I decided to pick up TGF's digi Halo Witch. She's rather big, but super fun to color. And it makes me remember just how much I like digi images, when I get off my lazy butt to get the printed out.

The TGF Challenge blog came out with a brand new Friday Challenge, this week's is Cas-ing Dictionary. I colored up Halo Witch in copics and cut her out. Then layered a few of my 2010 hallo's papers and topped it all off w/ some super awesome hallo's bakers twine.

The Dets:
Stamps: TGF Halo Witch digi, MFT PI Little Witch
Paper: MB licorice notecard, Cosmo Cricket mathilda
Ink: Copics, Versamark Fine black
Accessories: bakers twine

MFTWSC Little Witch

I so love halloween cards. And this year when I saw MFT's Pure Innocence Little Witch I knew I had to get it.

I paper pieced her outfit and colored the rest with copics. For the layout, I used this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge, MFTWSC37. The image was a bit large so I had to tweak it just a tiny bit. Then I used my brand new MFT file tab for the sentiment layer. I just love it. It's the perfect size to use up all my scraps. I topped it off w/ a bit of halloween colored baker's twine I got at my LSS.

The Dets:
Stamps: MFT Pure Innocence Little Witch
Paper: MB notecard, MME mischievous
Ink: Memento black, Spica glitter pen, Copics
Accessories: ribbon, MFT file tab die, bakers twine

Deconstructed Party Emma

I have a long list of uninked stamps (that for some reason just keeps growing). Luckily, I also have a long list of birthday/wedding/baby/hallos/xmas cards that need making.

This Sugarplum Party Emma is just one of those stamps that I had for a longer-than-I-care-to-admit. So I finally decided to break open her package, trim her up and stamp her out. I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch No. 19 for the layout. I colored Emma out in copics and then sponged the edges w/ some PTI chai tea ink. Then I added some stickles to her banner b/c I digs bling of any shape or form. I used PTI's vintage ornament die for the sentiment.

The Dets:

CC Designs Sugarplum Emma, Verve Birthday Bash
Paper: MB notecard, MME stella rose
Ink: Memento black, copics, chai tea ink, Brilliance pearlescent brown & galaxy gold
Accessories: PTI vintage ornament die, spellbinders, ribbon, bakers twine

Happy Wedding Day

Because I always leave things for the last minute (my middle name is "procrastinator"), I had to start & finish a wedding card just hours before we had to leave for said wedding. It was a wedding at the zoo. Have you ever been to a wedding at the zoo? Very interesting...suited the couple. I saw alot of penguin butts.

Anyway, I needed a quick and easy card so I pulled out my brand new PTI Simple Sentiments set and got to work on a very CAS card. Since the bride's colors were darker tiffany's blue/tealish and brown I went for a sort of similar color scheme. I thought it looked a bit too plain so I die cut a few hearts from the TCP heart trio cut-up. I just love those hearts, so funky looking. It was definitely a five minute card, which was perfect b/c I still needed to wrap the gift...

The Dets:
Stamps: PTI Simple Sentiments
Paper: kraft & cream cs, MME stella rose
Ink: Brilliance pearlescent chocolate, spica glitter pen
Accessories: TCP heart trio die

Honey Bear

It's been a really long time since I've played in Jen del Muro's SFYTT. But as soon as I saw this month's sketch my mind immediately went to my new (to me) TCP Honey Bear set. Which I had just bought and hadn't yet used. Which is too say it was taking up space on my Looming List of Unused Stamps.

I colored Mr. PJ-bear up in copics and added a bit of glossy accents to the honey in his jar. But I had a really hard time getting it to show up in any pictures I took, so you'll just have to trust me on that. This card was supposed to be for my Honey's birthday, its just a few week's late...

The Dets:

Stamps: TCP Honey Bear
Paper: MB key lime notecard, MME lime twist fly a kite
Ink: Copics, Memento black
Accessories: PTI pure poppy ribbon, Michael's ribbon, MFT bitty dots die
