Challenge Card-Halloween

I made a Halloween card yesterday.  I made it for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge at My Creative Time.  Her challenge was to make a project using NO machines.  You had to go old school on this one!  After I got the card made; I realized that it would also work for Paper Play Time's Fall Challenge this week.  I killed 2 birds with one stone this week!  (Told ya I didn't like birds!)  The printed paper is Flair Designs, all the cardstock is SU.  The ribbon is also SU.  The stamp and the ink is CTMH.  The black pearls are Queen and Co.

MPS Challenge-Bird

Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is doing some challenges today.  I decided that I'd play along.  The first challenge was to make something using a bird.  Now, I'm not really into the "bird craze" that is going on right now.  I'd prefer not to have birds on any of my stuff, but I tried.  I used Very Merry Tags and got a jump on my Christmas tag making!  I cut the tag at 4".  Then I cut the layer in red, then again in brown and cut the brown to fit onto the red.  I ran the red thru my CB using the D'vine Swirls folder.  I also inked the edges of everything using Colorbox chalk ink.  The green paper is DCWV, the brown is Coordinations and the red came from my scraps.  ****I have played with this all afternoon.  If you saw my first post, I apologize, that was awful!  I went back and sprayed the image with shimmer mist.  I made the shimmer mist using SU's Frost White Shimmer Paint and alcohol.  I also added a bow to the top.

"Hot" Card

The card swap this month over at Paper Crafting Mania was a "hot" card. Since I live in Texas and it's been 107 here, I used the sun for my "hot"! The sun came from Life's A Beach. I used a Peachy Keen stamp for the face and inked the edge of the circle with SU ink. I added Stickles for some glimmer! The clouds came from Mickey and Friends. The stamp is Paper Trey Inc. The best part-I used all scraps to make this card!

For the next 4 days, I'll be on retreat! I should have lots of pages to share next week!
