spooky witch - halloween card

Hello there peeps,

A halloween card today! I took out all my halloween materials to make this card, I bought "Spook Alley" Slice cartridge last year (note that MM no longer makes the Slice or coordinating cartridges) and came in handy for this yrs halloween. One thing about this card is the Martha Stewart glitter that I was dying to use, see, I tried covering the witch entirely with glitter but to no avail, the paper warped and it did not look - well - pretty. So, I decided to glitter up the "spooky" sentiment (also by Martha Stewart) and I like the effect. Lots of paper cutting and bling :) You likey? Let me know! Just 10 more days for Halloween! Looking for my Halloween craft inspiration? Do check out Keisha Campbell's blog! She's got the whole thing going :)

Take it easy,
C :)

'L' is for Love - WCMD '12


Hello there peeps,

A card here for WCMD '12 - there were tons of card making activities yesterday, I settled with Studio Calico's Challenge #5"make a card using die cuts or punches" challenge - so I decided to break out my Slice and put it to work. Some times, you feel very proud of your crafting skills - this is one of them ... Of course, give credit where credit is due - I've always been a fan of Stephanie Degan's (@ SC) work - so I used her card as a guide ... What do you think? I also used Dear Lizzy "5th & Frolic" paper exclusively, very colorful and playful and of course Kelly Purkey stamp ... Did you make a card for WCMD? I gotta say, I think it's the first time I've done it :)

Take it easy,
C :)
