Guess Hoo Card

Tacky Tuesday Challenge

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Happy Chilly Fall Morning!!! For today, I want to share with you all a Card that I entered on Tacky Tuesday's Challenge on Facebook. The theme was to use an Owl and the word HOO on the project. Here are some pics of my card:

I put some stardust glitter glue to the light pink color of the eyes and tummy.

The sentiment used is from Joy's Life Wild Life Puns. There is a link at the bottom of this post if you wish to purchase any of Joy's Stamp Sets.

For the Original Entry for thisChallenge I did not have this Orange mini Rosette. I thought the card needed a little bit more color. So, I decided to add this Orange Rosette.

I made the inside sentiment with my Word Doc in a chocolate brown color.

Here is some of the Supplies Used:

There is STILL TIME left if you want to have cute Halloween Sentiments for your Cards and Treats! So, go over Joy's Life and pick yourself some before it is too late.

I added some stardust, black, and lime green glitter glue to the card for 3D affect.
Curled up some thin strips of cardstock with a toothpick and added it to the top of the card.

Added the same elements to the pencil topper to coordinate the card. I also bunched up some tulle made it into a pompom and hot glued it under the pumpkin. Put some lime green glitter glue on the tulle for some color and texture.

I adhered some foam squares behind the pumpkin for dimension.

Fangs So Much...

Happy Halloween Card

Happy Happy Saturday Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is doing well and taking advantage of this beautiful Fall Weather. I want to share with you a cute, fun, and not so spooky card. I really did have fun working on this card. It is letting me know Halloween is just around the corner. I can't wait for all those lil' and not so lil' trick or treaters that will come to my door. So much fun!!! Ok, now onto my card. Here are some pics:

The Bat is inserted behind the bow with black wire. The "Fangs So Much" stamp is from Joy's Life HALLOWEEN PUNS Stamp Set. I cut a small piece of boa strip and hot glued to the center of the red bow.

Love the font on this stamp. Way too spooky looking.

Added some foam squares behind the lil' guy.

Gotta Love those Peachy Keen Stamp Faces. I used the Wide Eyed Kids set. Also, added some fangs to his cute face.

This sentiment is from Joy's Life Holiday Occasions Stamp Set. Very versitile... also stamped a spider from the dollar bin and drew stitched lines with a black pen.

My packaged card that I have for sale.

The top of the package coordinates with the card as well.

I stamped the sentiment that is inside of the card to the back of the card package.

Here are the Stamps sets I used and their links if you are wanting to purchase them.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today. Also, make sure to take advantage of all those blog hops going on today and all their blog candy too. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Congratulations Baby Card

Good Morning Crafty Friends! And Happy Columbus Day as well! I hope some of you are taking advantage of the Columbus Day sales going on today. For this morning, I would like to share with you a cute and not so baby blue or baby pink card. I wanted to use some neutral colors for this card. Here are some pics of my project:

All of the background matting were edged with chestnut roan chalking mini pads.

I backed the onsie with foam squares to give it dimension. A red button with brown cord was also adhered to the bow. A small googly eye made a cute accent for the baby chick.

Inside of the card, another baby chick was added to give a little more dimension, a googly eye was adhered to the baby chick also. The background circles were punched out with circle punches.

I made an extra card for sale and packaged it to coordinate with the card as well.

I also stamped in the back of the packaging, the sentiment that is inside of the card.

Here is where you can find some of the products I have used for this card. The direct links to them are underneath. Have a Sweet and Creative week my Creative Friends!!!

Don't Forget there is still time to purchase Joy's Spooky Halloween Stamp Set for your Projects!!!

A Whole Latte Love...

Thank You Cards

Good Morning Creative Friends!!! I am happy very happy to be back in the creative world again! On Saturday, I took advantage of "World Cardmaking Day" and made a set of Thank You cards for my Son. My other inspiration to create this set of cards:


 Sorry for that tempting and yummy moment (perfect for this fall weather too)...lol.
Ok now, back too the crafty part of this post. I will try to show and let you know all the steps I took to create this set of cards. Enjoy...

White Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool were used on half of the cards.

Half of the Cards were just left with the Clear Embossing Ink and heat set. It left a rich brown look.

Here are some of the supplies used to make this set of cards. Other supplies was used as the cards were put together.

I used my Susie G. to design all of the cards.

Close-up of the Susie G. Screen.

First layer cut on the Cricut Expression. I forgot to take a pic of the second layer.

This layer was on the second screen and is adhered on the inside of the card.

I didn't use green textured cardstock like I planned to use. This layer was on the second screen as well. I used a light shade of green to color the leaf  and sprinkles part of the layer.

I adhered the next layer on top of the leaf one.

I stamped "A Whole Latte Love" from Joy's Life Stamps on the next layer of the cards.

The brown layer was adhered and white top layer was adhered as well.

The last layer was adhered on the inside of the card.

I added Stardust glitter glue the Sprinkles and added white dots around the mug and smaller dots on the leaves.

Here are some Yummy and Fun Supplies (along with links to their site page), I used to make this set of cards.

You still have time to order this Spooky and Fun Pun set from Joy's Life.
Huuurrry Halloween is right around the corner!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by to view my project and post. I hope everyone has a Sweet and Creative Week!!!
