A Joyful Halloween

Ok so how about those new gorgeous Pion Halloween papers?!!  I was so excited to see them when they came out that I had to have all of them!!  They are called "The Witching Hour", so cute!!  I know some of you don't celebrate Halloween but rest assured there are other papers that would be perfect for you as well.  I think some of them could be used for those masculine cards we are all challenged with.  LOL!!  

I liked using the Joy stars border die because I think stars go with Halloween, given that it kind of all happens at night.  You can see a bit of a piece of paper under the "A Joyful Halloween" postcard that shows some stars on the Pion papers.  Barely, but it's there and that would be a handy sheet for masculine cards.

I was going to color up an image but the papers come with some cute vintage images I opted for instead.  There's lots of cutouts you can use from Pion tags, images and borders sheets.  I used three butterflies from the borders sheet and here you can see I placed one of them on a Joy "Vintage Flourish Clip" die.  It's a set of three and one of them is a balloon clip you could actually add a sentiment to.  Super cute!  (See supplies list below)

Oh my GOSH this bronze owl is gorgeous so I think I'll be adding a few more to my stash! hee hee  It's just the perfect little piece to fill in that spot where you think something looks like it's missing.  I tied a cute little wax cord bow and topped it off with a Wild Orchid Crafts flower.  I have to tell you this cord is sooooo easy to tie and it doesn't get a kink in it when you decide to start a bow over.

I used a new Joy die brought out this fall called "Autumn Leaves".  See all my foilage at the bottom of this pic?  What I liked is that you cut once and get a ton of leaves so I cut three times (different papers) to get an overabundant amount of them.  I think I even had leftovers!

There's a cute sentiment on the Pion images sheet I've used and then popped up a bow with a "Vintage Findings Perfect Arrow".

If you celebrate Halloween 
and to the rest of you have a great week!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hand Picked For Hedgy

I've been doing so many winter cards lately I just really needed to do something summery but I'll be right back to the winter pieces soon!  I really managed to jam pack this card with many wonderful goodies!!  hee hee  I mean how precious is that little bronze owl?!! KA-UTE!! 

I had sooooo much fun coloring this image from LDRS Candibean.  Sooooo stinkin' cute!!  Now I had to laugh at myself after I was finished.  I unintentionally colored it the SAME WAY as the packaging on the stamp!!!  Well!!  I'd be the one advertising works on by using the power of suggestion!  LOL!!  Too funny!

I still love all the leave dies Noor has so I used a couple of different ones on this card.  The silver bark hearts are relatively new to the store - YAY!!  I LOVE THEM!  And I'm also a huge fan of the glass strawberries.  It might even be because of the cool name cuz that's cute too.  LOL!  

One of my latest favorite embellishments is the Marianne tassels die.  I can't stop using it!!  Another set of leaves and you can see the border of leaves using a Studio Light die.  I also topped off a lot of pieces with Gesso to add a little shabby to my card.

Thanks for coming by again and enjoy the rest of your day!

Want a Present from a Penguin?

I'm already getting ready for Christmas what about you?  I have a big list for cards but I'm not gonna stress about it anymore.  If it doesn't happen, then they get a new year's card and isn't it a new year for a whole month?  Lots of time!  LOL!!  So today, I bring you another Christmas card and many more on the way.  hee hee

I know I'm always telling you something is cute BUT SERIOUSLY?!!  ISN'T THIS PENGUIN CUTE?!!!  OMG!!  He's from Wild Rose Studio along with a handful of new Christmas stamps.  A bit difficult to tell but I added some Snow-Tex to his hat for texture then glitter over top.  

I think these Scrapiniec snowflakes are so pretty so I popped a couple of those on the card.  I'm really liking this moss that's been on my last 2 cards.  Who would have thought we'd ever be using moss but it looks great!!!

Love those Wild Orchid gardenia's especially with a seam binding bow underneath, which is available in 9 different colors.  Great selection!

Well there you have it for today!  If you have started on your xmas cards or crafts already I hope you're making some headway too.  Enjoy your day!!  Thanks for stopping by!
