Hello Crafty Friends!  Today I am sharing a Halloween Summer Treat Card!! LOL  Kadoodle Bug Designs has a challenge going on at their Facebook KBD Challenges page and the theme is 'Create a Treat-Summer Themed'.  Well a Doodlebug fan had wanted to do a Halloween Challenge so it gave me this idea to combine the two.  There can't be Halloween without Freddie Krueger!

So, I hope y'all can come play along with us and if you do, you have a chance to win your choice of a free KBD pattern!

Koala-fied to party!

Hello Crafty Friends! Today is my day to post over at Craftin' Desert Diva's blog and I made a shaker card using the new Koala-fied stamp set!  I hope y'all enjoyed the New Stamp Release this past week!!  I think Tara knocked it out of the park with this release! All of the new stamp sets and new sequins are available in the CDD shop now.   Here is the card I made: 

I colored the images with Copics.  I also fussy cut an extra image and popped dotted him so that he would hang over the side.

Stamped sentiment in VersaFine Black Ink

On the butterfly I also used Clear Wink of Stella and added white dots with a Gelly roll pen.  I also fussy cut an extra butterfly to add on top to give dimension.

I used Springtime Wishes sequins for inside the shaker.

Now, I got this FABULOUS  card design from a channel that youtube had suggested to me and I am so thankful they did!  Her name is Therese from Lost in Paper and she is so very talented!  Here is the tutorial for this card I made.  Please go and visit her blog and you will see how talented she is!  Thank you Therese for giving me the inspiration/idea/tutorial for this card!

CDD Products used:

The patterned paper I used is Embellish by Dena, Little Azalea, 6x6 pad

I used the stamp set Owl-idays!

  These owls are just too cute and so irresistible!!  This whole New Release is just beyond cute and I know you will love them as much as I do!  For the frames I bought a svg from the Silhouette store called Tiles Squares Sketch and picked just one square and used my copic multi-liner pen to draw instead of cut the square.  I then masked the edges of the squares then stamped my owls.    

 I colored the images with my Copics.

I colored in the white background with my Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.

I popped dotted just the square with the sentiment.

From our home to yours!

Hello Friends!  I am on a roll tonight posting two post in one day!  But I have to post this card as I just LOVE how it turned out!  I used Kadoodle Bug Design's Giving Gifts Santa pattern and Craftin Desert Diva's Simply Said stamp set, Tag It stamp set and Tag It SVG.  I also used Merry Mix sequins that will be available Friday in the CDD shop.  I embossed the sayings with clear embossing powder over VersaFine ink.  I also used Wink of Stella clear glitter.  I have made this card design a few times before but the name of the design is not coming to me, sorry!
