Halloween with Delicious Doodles

Good morning! Kevin and I stopped and had Arby's last night for dinner because we were out running errands. We BOTH ended up sick too!! I think maybe it gave us food poisoning... I was up at 2 am sick... still have a huge headache. Not how I wanted to start the weekend o.O

So, today we are having our Halloween challenge at Delicious Doodles. I've used several different images to create a step card. And Teri adds so much detail to her images, that I really didn't add much color at all. Her images are already amazing!!  Here is what I've come up with:

So, as you can see, I've created a step card for this challenge. I used The Graveyard for the center of the step card. I've used my Prismacolor Pencils to add just a little bit of color on this image. I used some grays for the sky and shadows and green for the grass and that's it! I also popped the front two tombstones on that image. On the sides of the step card, I have used tombstones from Tombstone Collection. Happy Halloween is stamped at the top and that stamp is from My Craft Spot. I took my finger over the wet ink and tried to drag some of it up an down to make it a bit more creepier. Not sure if that really came across like I wanted it to LOL!!

Trick or Treat at Meljen's Designs!

Good morning! And a very Happy Thursday to you! I'm really ready for the week to be over! I have been coloring a bunch of images.. I'm hoping this weekend to get them on something! LOL  Then I'll be good!  I hope you all are having a crafty fun week!!

Today we are on Challenge #233 - Trick or Treat (Halloween) at the Meljen's Designs Challenge Blog! I LOVE Halloween cards and I LOVE using Meljen's Designs images to create them!! She has some of the best Halloween images! They are so fun!  For this card I went with a kitty theme LOL!!

I used quite a few images for this card.. sticking with my Kitty Halloween theme. So, first is the sentiment stamp. That is a new stamp set from My Craft Spot. They had an amazing new release recently with some amazing stamps and dies! I stamped that with white on the dark purple. The image at the bottom is Mini Boo Ghosts. I decoupaged the stars spelling out Boo. I also added the green gems at the top. The next image is Fish or Treat Cat. I decoupaged the ghost part of him and the front fish. The swirls in the middle are from a Memory Box die that was cut a bit. I also added the black pearls. There are also four die cuts, a cauldron, ghost, tombstone and pumpkin which are Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The Trick or Treat Stamp is also from My Craft Spot and then the two additional images on the inside are Nibbles The Zombie Cat and Mummy Kitty. For Nibbles I decoupaged his body and those legs that are more to the front and then I popped his head one more level. For the Mummy Cat, I popped up his body. For the final panel I have the Cutie Corner Spider with the spider body popped and then Franken Kitty and his front legs and body are popped and then his head is also popped. I love these tri-shutter cards! I always seem to make one for Meljen's at Halloween!! LOL  All of the papers are scraps from last years Halloween papers.I did add chalk to those four small die cuts as well. And all of these images were colored using my Copic Markers!

I used white Liquid Pearls to add some snow falling. I've added the corner die cut, small red gems to add a bit of detail to that corner, the green ribbon and the green candi dots at the top.

October Inspiration for SLS Lines Digital Stamps

Happy Morning to you!! And Happy Monday... errr.. I guess its happy LOL  I can't believe the weekend is already finished. I feel like I didn't really get much done this weekend. I got 4 images completed.. colored, decoupaged, detailed, but I didn't get any cards created. I am almost finished with the 5th image I was working on. Again.. still didn't really get anything completed LOL  Oh well!!  This week will be a busy one. I have teacher conference for Bailey on Tuesday morning.. Kevin is going to do that one for me.. I LOVE THAT MAN! He is so wonderful!!  Then on Wednesday I have to take Bailey to the dermatologist. We are going to see about getting some warts removed from her finger tips. Bailey also has practice this week.. not sure which days yet.. they keep switching! And then her last game for the season will be Saturday morning. Michael was at a drama competition with the school this Saturday and they made it through to the regional level, so he will be doing that on Saturday, but they will be practicing Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I believe. He wasn't able to be IN the show because of his grades, but he is able to be a stage hand. That's it.. my busy week LOL  Hope you guys have a WONDERFUL week ahead!!!

Today I am sharing my October inspiration for SLS Lines Digital Stamps. Here is my inspiration:

For this card I'm using Day of the Dead Calavera 2 which you can find at the SLS Lines Digital Stamps Etsy Shop! I printed this image on kraft paper and colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils. I love the look of Prismacolor Pencils on Kraft! I did a little bit of decoupage.. I popped some of the flowers and the skull on the flower on her head. The two black strips on the front are embossed with brick wall embossing folder and they are also stitched around the edge with red. I stamped the thank you. The cut around the image is a Spellbinders die. The corners on the inside are Die-namics dies from My Favorite Things. The inside square is also a Spellbinders die. I used all cardstock on this card; no patterned paper. This is a diamond fold card, but inside out.

Getting Spooky at The East Wind

Good morning! Can you believe we are halfway through October? I can't believe it! Let's see... what's been going on? Bailey played a Lacrosse game on Saturday and they really got beat badly. But the girls played hard all the way through. So proud of them! There are only a couple of more games to go for the fall. Bailey seems to really like it though and she will keep practicing through until Spring. That's about it. I was feeling rotten all weekend... glad we are halfway through the week now. And yesterday... I thought it was Wednesday all day!!! Ughhhhhhhh I hate that!! LOL But!! It has been a good week so far at work. My desk is clear, I'm all caught up and my email box is manageable!!
