Happy Halloween!

Hello and Happy Halloween!

I have a snow globe shaker card today :)

 (just ignore the fact that my baggie leaked and messed up my pretty background...)

This was my first attempt at a liquid shaker card and to be honest there were many mistakes. So I'm not going to type out how I made it because it was a very fluid and constantly evolving process. I should be able to do better next time :)

so instead of details on the card, enjoy pictures from our Halloween activities on Saturday!

They're so stinkin' cute!
Anyways, I'll be back tomorrow to start off the next 30 day coloring challenge! Have a fun, spooky, and candy-filled day!

Bright Shiny Trees!

Hi and happy Friday!
Today's card is pretty simple but very fun and sparkly :)

This one was fairly quick, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then all of the trees in raspberry fizz, tropical teal, bright buttercup, and limeade ice ink on some white card stock. I adhered it to a black card base and then added some glitter and sequins using glossy accents. ta-daaa!

We're going to try and take Bree to a trunk or treat thing tomorrow so I'm trying to teach her to say trick or treat but i'm not holding out much hope, the only thing she really says to strangers is "hi" and "bye bye see ya soon" I'll definitely share a picture of my princesses in their costumes on Monday! Have a great weekend!

Embossed Poinsettia

Today's card uses a fun embossed impression technique that Jennifer McGuire did a video on this week. Fun, simple, quick, and pretty!

I started off with a piece of Berry Sorbet card stock, cut to 3 3/4" x 5 1/4". I prepped the paper and my poinsettia die with some anti static powder and then lightly tapped my Versamark ink pad on my die. I carefully placed it on my card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing pad. I heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder and then I had the gorgeous letter-pressed look with the embossing and the fine white outlines from the heat embossing, so pretty! I used a white colored pencil to sketch in the veins on the flower petals and then colored over the petals with my wink of stella shimmer pen. I die cut the Merry Christmas out of white cardstock and adhered that over the flower. I added some baker's twine and pearls and then mounted it on a white card base with foam adhesive to finish it off!

Bree fell in love with Little Einsteins this month and she can pick out all sorts of instruments when she listens to classical music like Oboes and Cellos. (although she still won't say Emma's name and insists on calling her Bah-ha...) Her new favorite instrument of the day is Cymbals. She doesn;t have cymbals but that sure didn't stop her from playing them. She's decided that the play lunchmeat and cheese from her kitchen (which was actually my play lunchmeat and cheese from my kitchen set when I was a kid...) are her cymbals. It's kind of hilarious to watch her marching around the house beating her two plastic slices of swiss cheese together and asking me to sing along (apparently she prefers the 1812 overture when she plays the cymbals... who knew?) Parenting is magical :)

Have a great day!
