Some of my recent cards...

Good morning and Happy Halloween! I wanted to share a few of the recent cards I've made with you today...

This first one was made with the October kit from Artful Delight and is actually my very last DT project, which makes me SO sad! I've really loved being a part of Leeanne's DT for the past year and it will be a big change now that I won't be anymore. I still plan to play along with the sketch each month though and try my hand at winning a kit! ;)




Supplies Used From The Artful Delight October Kit: BoBunny Et Cetera Paper - Stamped; BoBunny Double Dot Cardstock - Coffee Stripe; Bazzill Clear Self-Adhesive Jewels; Flower
Other Supplies Used: Papertrey Ink Cardstock - Vintage Cream; Tim Holtz Ink - Walnut Stain; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Sentimentally Ali; Fiskars Butterfly Punch

This next card was inspired by a challenge in my scrapbooking group Scrappin-N-Chattin, which was to include leaves on your card. It was simple for me since I had a gorgeous flower left over from my September AD kit and it already had the leaves attached! It worked perfectly. ;)




Supplies: Crate Paper Farmhouse Paper - Cupboard & Accent Cuts (From The AD September Kit); Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe Paper - Playhouse; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Sentimentally Ali; Flower (Made by Leeanne - From The AD September Kit); Misc. Button

This last card was another challenge at Scrappin-N-Chattin and it wasn't as simple to do and was actually a bit of a challenge for me! I've made cards before with pockets on the inside but never one on the front. I just thought it over though and once the idea for this design came to me, I absolutely loved creating it! I think this is a great way to have the gift on the actual card and then have the inside for your message. I'm thinking these would rock for Christmas! :)




Supplies: BoBunny Gabrielle 6x6 Paper Pad; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Craft Smart Ink - Chocolate Brown; Skipping Stones Designs Stamp; Martha Stewart Circle Cutter; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches; I-Rock; I-Rock Clear Gems

Ok, that's it for today. I have a busy day ahead of me, which includes trick-or-treating with my munchkins! They are a vampire and princess this year...should make for some awesome pics together, right? LOL! Have an awesome day!
