Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone. Thanks a bunch for stopping by. So are you dressing up and going out tonight...or have any little ghosts, goblins or princesses that are chomping at the bit to go and do some Trick or Treating? I know my daughter can't wait to get going. This year she is being a Pirate Gypsy (really it's a Gypsy costume but she thinks it looks like a pirate now- due to her tights and glove-ish things we got her). My son is a bit more simple and he's just being a Guy that is riding an ostrich -ish looking bird with one of those fun guns that doesn't shoot instead the word "Bang" pops out.

But on to the fun stuff- this Monday over at TS Monday the challenge is "Halloween". We can't wait to see what you brew up for this one:)

I have used Friendly Dexter for this challenge....who doesn't love a good dragon right?  He is another super fun image from artist Sylvia Zet, you can find him Here.

I created this card in my 5th wheel while camping so I have lost the list of copics that I used. The paper is from the Glowing Collection from Authentique and the Rick Rack is from American Crafts.

You've probably noticed by now that the last few projects I have made are done so with allot of the same products- I was in a pinch for time and my Hubby didn't grab my supplies from home before he left to pick me up to go camping (I was working out of town). So being resource-full and all I did the next best thing and went shopping.... hence my limited supplies (I even had to buy a cutter and adhesives, scissors,etc). 

Over at Totally Stampalicious they  have priced ALL stamps (yes the 4x6 sets) at 8.95 now!

And they have a great new promotion going on:

A Pair of Fun Halloween Tags

Happy Monday:) I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a nice and relaxing one that involved hitting West Edmonton Mall (that was really not so relaxed- it was uber busy) for a bit of shopping, a whole lot of family time and a nice dinner. 

But anyhow this week over at TS Mondays it's a Color Challenge- Purple, Orange and Black...but since I never use Halloween cards I decided to make a couple of Halloween Tags. I thought they would be great for giving some sweet treats to my Niece and Nephew.

I used Chester Platypus from Totally Stampalicious and you can find him HERE. He's just an all around fun and wacky image I am just adoring.

image:  Chester Platypus- Totally Stampalicious
copics:  YR04, YR07, YR09, YR15, YR18, YR68, R05, E51, E53, E55, E59

A Road Trip Thanks;)

Happy Monday, thanks for stopping by. Talking about being Thankful the challenge over at Totally Stampalicious this week is "Canadian Thanksgiving".  I thought I would make a bit of a fun "Thank-you" card using Road Trip Stella

She truly is a girl after my own heart....I love road trips and I can't wait to head on up to Peace River for Scrap til You Drop 2011! this coming weekend. The ladies up there are so awesome and the food is out of this world and well I just highly recommend attending this one.

 I colored Stella using my Copics on X-Press It cardstock (alot of YR's and E's). I paired her with some fun designer paper from Authentique Paper.  I added a bit of rick rack from American Crafts and a fun little accent piece from American Crafts as well and topped it all off by popping up the main image panel using some pop dots (all available from The Inked Stamper in St Albert, AB).
Be sure to stop on over at the Totally Stampalicious Design Team's Blogs to see some fabulous eye candy - the links are on the right hand side of the screen.

Have a wonderful week and a Blessed Thanksgiving,

Suffer from Insanity???

Lol, I know that I definitely do some days. That's why I adore Chester Platypus by artist Sylvia Zet. I also felt like making a different from the ordinary shaped card so I made this one (I'm so tired I can't think of the name of it) and there is a tutorial for it over at Splitcoast Stampers.

The challenge this week over at Totally Stampalicious Monday is "Emboss It!" - either heat or dry embossed. I chose to dry emboss using an Embossing Folder and my Big Shot (well okay 2 embossing folders).

I had such a blast coloring Chester...I even decided to make my own background; he was looking really bare against a stark background. So I drew up the bushes and the grass line with a pencil and then went over it with my Copic Multi-Liner. Then I just layered it up and added my sentiments using pop-dots for a bit more dimension.

Copics:  BG10, BG72, BG75, BG78; YR31, YR23; T3, T5; O; Multi-Liner
Ink: Tuxedo Black- Tsukineko; The blue ink is from Tim Holtz line of Distress Inks 
(sorry I couldn't figure out the name - all my goodies are packed for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival...WOOT!)
Cardstock: Basic Gray-SU; off white- Bazzill and it has a bit of sparkle to it.
DSP:  Renaissance Faire Collection- Graphic 45
other: off white ribbon; tag (both unknown)

Thanks a bunch for stopping by ;)
