Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to all that celebrates it! =) Here is a, well, Halloween card that I made using a cute image from Whiff of Joy Stamps.


Not necessarily the traditional colors for the background, but still fun, right? =)


The adorable image is called Maya - Witch & Kitty on Broom and it's stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size.


The patterned paper is from Mischievous 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment and bats are from Happy Halloween set. The spider charm and black grosgrain ribbon are from WoJ as well.

That's all for now. Hope you have a fun and safe one! =)

Stockings

Hi ya, all! =) Here is another card that I made using the newly released The Sweetest Season collection by Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs.


I used Stockings for this card. These are so cute! =)


The image is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. I added White Enamel Accents to the dots on the middle stocking for a little texture and interest.


Instead of using patterned paper, I covered the edges of the card front with a mixture of matching (in colors) Japanese washi tapes. The sentiment is from Sweet Season Sentiments.

That's it for now. Don't forget to check out the entire The Sweetest Season collection here! For more samples from the design team, please visit Purple Onion Designs Blog! =)

Maya's Kitty On Pumpkin

Hi ya, all! Here is a card that I made using one of the Halloween images released by Whiff of Joy Stamps last month.


Do you celebrate Halloween? We usually don't do anything special with it. However, there are kids in our condo building, so we will have some candies on hand just in case someone comes by trick-or-treating. =)


I used the adorable Maya's Kitty On Pumpkin for my card. She is stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die using the out of frame die cut technique.


The patterned paper is from Mischievous 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is from Happy Halloween set also from Whiff of Joy. The new WoJ challenge theme is Boo! Spooked You, so don't forget to submit your entries for a chance to win!
