Happy Fall Break to you. :) Well, it is for us, anyway. So far we have done nada. We had a trip planned to North Carolina but based on weather conditions and half of us getting over a lingering cold, we cancelled that one. Just didn't think it made sense to go. So we are on a Staycation.
So, I'm popping in to share some cards I made last night when I finally had enough energy to do a little creating. It was quite therapeutic. I felt so much better afterwards. 8-) (Nerd smiley)
I started with Freshly Made Sketches for my jumping point, knowing I wanted to make a Halloween card with bats based on the current Curtain Call challenge. And, for some strange, nerdy reason decided to challenge myself to make a card for Christmas using the same sketch. THEN, I decided it was working for my Mojo so much that I made one for Thanksgiving, as well. Covered all my holiday bases for the rest of the year. 8-)
Here is what I did (first):
I used my circle punches and 6x6 BoBunny Fright Delight paper pad for the circles. The bat is stamped and heat embossed in white using my CTMH Frightfully Fun stamp set, the BOO stamped the same way from CTMH Trick or Treat Sweets set. I finished it all off by outlining the card base with my Signo Broad white gel pen.
I'm also playing along with The Paper Players current Halloween challenge.
For my second card, I wanted to make a Christmas card, but make it a little different than the first, while still following the sketch.
I used my Simon Says Stamp Candy Cane Christmas stamp set, MFT Double Stitched Rectangle die and Diagonal Striped stamp set, Lawn Fawn's Cranberry ink, and MFT's Limelight ink. Very simple - took just a few minutes to make!
I'm also playing along with Addicted to Stamps - CAS challenge.
And here is my third card - Thanksgiving - since I was having so much fun. :-)
I used my Lawn Fawn Harvest Season stamp set - embossing the leaves in gold before watercoloring with my Zig Clean Color pens. It's all on a panel of watercolor paper. I layered the panel on a card base from Cocoa CTMH cardstock.
I'm also playing along with the Less Is More - Jewel Colors challenge.
Ok! I think that's all for me today! I've been trying to type my post and talk on the phone with my parents. :) Always an interesting time. hee hee!
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit. Please do so again soon!
