Today I decided to take a little break from sewing and make a halloween card. I noticed that Newtons Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge this week was Halloween as a theme. I always love making halloween cards.

I made today's card for a Mystery Image Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Carol was our hostess this month and she came up with an adorable image to challenge us with.
The image is called "Mimi" by Taylored Expressions. I thought it was adorable but my carded needed something a little extra so I added the dog house which is from the Happy Tails stamp set by Stampin Up.
Thanks Carol for a great challenge this month.

Today is September 15th and that means it is time for our Classy Card Ladies Challenge. I am lucky enough to have Barb as my partner and we love to come up with ideas for challenges. September was our month to hostess so we decided to have as our challenge "Pumpkins" because fall is just around the corner and all my favorite coffee houses have started selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

Today's challenge over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies does not have a sponsor but the winner of this challenge will win a $5 Gift Certificate from Mo's Digital Pencil donated by Pam. After cleaning out my craft room this week, I have decided that Digital stamps are the way to go. A lot less storage issue and they have so many darling images.
I did not have time to color one of Mo's Digital Pencil darling images so I decided to use a card I made for our Monthly Image Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Patti was our hostess this month and she chose the image and sentiments from Stampin Up "Back On Your Feet". It seems like we all know someone who is going through a rough patch and could use a card of encouragement.
I used an embossing folder for the background that looks like the turtle shell to me. I colored the image with my copic markers and used SU circle dies to cut the image out. I added a few gold sequins and wrapped twine around the sentiment on the bottom.
Thanks for checking out my card and I hope to see your entries over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies.

This week for Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.
There is an extra element to the challenge this week. It is to be clean and simple. You will see the description of how to do that on Pammie's blog.

Maggie had a great challenge for us this month over in our Challenge Your Stash group on Splitcoaststampers. She challenged us to use dies and punches on our card - No stamps. Well I have tons of dies and that hard part was deciding which set to use.
I have to admit that this die has not been in my stash long but I have been looking for a reason to use it. The background is a pierced lattice cutting plate from Taylored Expressions. The flower is called Layered coneflower by Honey Bee and the Hello is from Pink Fresh.
I cut the flowers out of Tim Holtz Watercolor paper and inked them up with my Distress oxides. The stem I fussy cut and guessed on the size.
What a fun challenge. I just may have to use this technique again. I do love my flowers.
