Skipping Stones Design September Challenge

Hi Everyone,

for the coming week we have a fun challenge for you here at Skipping Stones Design - the theme is HALLOWEEN

Now I don't have any Skipping Stones Halloween set, so its time to get creative! Nothing better than a real challenge!

For my card I am using this hilarious Skipping Stones Designs set called Dandelion Dreams. I first masked the moon and then sponged with distress inks to get a spooky night background. I then took various stamps and first stamped them  in white. Then I moved the card a smidgen and overstamped with black. Repeated until I was happy. Added the "clouds" - white ink directly to paper. No sentiment, 'cause I don't have one. 

Spooky enough, what do you think?

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Joy Clair

Hi Everyone,

I am on the Joy Clair blog today with this card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:

Joy Clair is a  Sponsor for the first time and you have a chance to win a gift card to spend at the Joy Clair's store. 

Coffee gift
I used the wonderful  Fall Planner set to make this card. I repeatedly stamped the cocoa cup with my Misti. I sponged the left side with dark brown ink and also stamped the cocoa cup on Kraft and heat embossed it in white. Added a snippet of  PP for more interest and mounted the Kraft circle with foam tape.

So Suzy - Cats in a Tree

Hi Everyone, 

I made a romantic night scene using those pretty So Suzy stamps:

I started making my background first - using a punched out post-it note and sponging around in yellow. I then took grey distress ink and sponged again, but was not happy with how it looked. So I took Memento Luxe ink in grey and sponged again - this ink works like a charm - smooth and creamy, no splotches. Then I took the  Cats in a Tree stamp and stamped it with my Misti. Added the Audrey Hepburn sentiment.
It still needed something, so I figured splatters would do and I think they succeeded. You can see it as stars or perhaps snowflakes - after all winter is coming, right?

I took the pumpkin and apple basket and stamped them onto DP. Colored them with my Inktense pencils. I heat embossed the sentiment onto a snippet of dark woodgrain DP and sewed it onto my card. Easy Peasy!

At our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)
