Halloween treats


Bree and I made up little treat bags full of Halloween toys for her kindergarten class and I made a card to hold the Starbucks gift card we got for her teacher! 

We're not handing out candy this year to trick or treaters because we'll be out trick or treating with the girls, so we made the treat bags for the class and we donated some massive amounts of candy to Bree's school for the trunk or treat event they're putting on tomorrow night. obligation fulfilled!

I'll be back tomorrow with one last Halloween card and then it's all autumn and christmas cards for the next few weeks! ♥

Inky Paws Challenge 84


There's a brand new Inky Paws Challenge today that's just perfect for some fun autumn cards! The new challenge is to use Burlap or Twine and you have two weeks to play along for the chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store!

I made a pretty ink blended background with some Distress Oxide inks and then used the same inks to stencil my tree ring on the background for some fun pattern. I die cut my leaves out of a rustic cream piece of cardstock and then glued the burlap behind the negative leaves. I fussy cut around the edges of the leaves and then glued in the stems of the leaves on top of the burlap for an extra bit of detail. So fun!

This is the beginning of a crazy busy week over here, we have spirit week at Bree's school, Trunk or Treats, Trick or Treating, Doctor's appointment, Dance class, Dishwasher Installation, MOPS meeting, Date Night, the New 30 Day Coloring Challenge starts on Thursday, Switching out Decorations, Hopefully getting my ceiling fixed in my living room, family visits, and then of course, regular day to day life! eek! wish me luck! I'll be back tomorrow with the Halloween treat bags and tags I made for Bree's class and a card I made for her teacher!

Have a lovely day!

Inky Paws Challenge 83 part two!


I have my second card for the Inky Paws Challenge #83 sketch today. I went with a shaker card for this card and it turned out so fun! There's still a week left to play along with the sketch challenge for a chance to win $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store! (and their last release was ah-mazing so that $20 would come in handy! my new release order is supposed to be delivered today and i can't wait to play with it all!)

I used The Snow Globe Scenes and Sentiments of the Season stamp sets and the Starfield Stencil. I masked off my sky area and inked it up with Distress Oxides before stenciling the stars with texture paste, I sprinkled some glitter on top of the texture paste before it dried to make it sparkly and my little scene inside the circle is a shaker!

We had a fun fall weekend over here, on Saturday we went to a costume birthday party and then on Sunday we went out to a pumpkin patch (and it was chilly enough that we all had to wear jackets which is almost unheard of here in Suffolk in October!) Now that we've dressed up and done the whole pumpkin thing I'm kind of ready for Halloween to be over :)

bring on Christmas!

a merry menagerie

 Hello and happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone is ready for some Christmas cards!
Last year I made unique cards for everyone on my list instead of a mass produced family picture card and I mailed them so late in the year that I decided to wait until Christmas card season rolled around again to blog them :)

This one was for my aunt, and all of those animals are modeled after her current flock of dogs (6
!) and a cat (!) 

soooo much coloring and fussy cutting!

have a lovely day! ♥

Fall-ing for Inky Paws Challenge 83!


There's a new sketch challenge today for the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! I decided to go with a cream colored pumpkin background for my bottom layer of the sketch using the Newton's Nook Pumpkin Patch Stencil and it turned out so soft and pretty!

I started off by masking off my stenciling area on a kraft colored card base and then I mixed up some Ranger Texture Paste with some Distress Ink Antique Linen Reinker so I could have a cream stencil paste for my background. Once my stenciling had dried I inked it up with some more Distress Oxide Inks. I used Antique Linen on the bottoms of the pumpkins, Gathered Twigs for the pumpkin stems, Bundled Sage for the vines, and Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon together for the leaves. so pretty I kind of hated to cover it up! I added some ribbons across the card front and tied a twine bow over them. I used the Tree Ring stencil (I haven't been able to put this stencil down this week, it keeps ending up on all of my projects because I love it so much!) and some Old Paper Distress Oxide ink on some rustic cream cardstock. I die cut the stitched circle and added the sentiment to finish the card off!

Definitely try and play along with this sketch, it was a really fun one to work with! As usual, there's a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs Online Store if you link up to the challenge!

Have a lovely day!

Trick or Treat! Inky Paws Challenge 82 ♥


I have my second card for Challenge 82 for the Inky Paws Challenge Blog! We're still on the color challenge of purple, orange, yellow, and lime green and I have another Halloween card!

I stamped my candy corn background with the Newton's Nook Candy Corn stamp set and colored it with Copics and coated my candy corn in glossy accents. After my glossy accents dried I inked up the background with Distress Oxide inks and splattered it with white paint. I colored and cut out my witchy kitty from Newton's Nook Boo-tiful Night stamp set with Copic markers on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I die cut some clouds out of vellum and I cut the tag from the Newton's Nook Tags Times Two die set and stamped my sentiment from the Creepy Cameos set. I put everything together on a white card base and added some sequins and baker's twine to finish it off!

We're very ready for Halloween over here! The girls have their costumes, I have (most of) my costume ready, we're decorated and ready to go! Every morning Bree wakes up and says "today is a Halloween day! Happy Halloween!" and she says hello and goodbye to our decorations when she leaves for school and comes home 😏

Come join us this week for this fun color challenge and a chance to win a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online store!

Have a lovely day!
