That Girl is Poison!

I just fell in love with this stamp the first time I saw it! Her name is Perfect Poison by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and I knew I had to make something over the top with her. This weeks Challenge from KKS is a Color Challenge using Orange, Green and Purple. This combo lent itself well to Perfect Poison.

I decided to try my hand at making a three dimensional card, this was my first attempt at a shadow box card. I found a tutorial online, it was pretty easy but I could use some practice at being more precise. I am not a perfectionist, my cards always come out a little crooked. I found that when I try to be perfect it holds me back so now I just go for it, if it works great if not then try again!

Anyway, I had fun putting it together. I love that MS Drippy Goo punch and The New MS Splat Punch. Lots of Diamond Stickles, flowers, mini skull and fun paper.
Thanks for looking!

Haunted Trick or Treating!

Trick or Treat? Which are you? Personally it's Treat for me preferably something covered in CHOCOLATE!
I've been playing around with the new Stampotique Pumpkins and they are popping up all over the place. Here you see one being used on "smile" from Stampotique. I made this card for two challenges Haunted Design House "Horrific Haunts" and The Burtonesque Dolls "Trick or Treating in Burton's Neighborhood". Do you see the Burton Movie references? Thanks for looking! Happy Haunting!

Simply Betty Stamps Non Traditional Halloween Colors Challenge

Today I am playing along with Simply Betty Stamps Challenge. Create a New Halloween color combo, no Black, Orange, Purple or Green combos.
I just Love Betty's new Halloween Emo's, as soon as I got them they were colored up and I was excited to play along. I just love the vibrant contrast between turquise and red, so I decided to use that combo along with Rio Devil.
Thanks for looking!

Mostly Black and White

I'm Lovin' my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, they are so much fun to color and the designs from Annie Rodrigue are just soooo cute!
This weeks challenge on the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog is Mostly Black and White. Who better to inspire Black and White then Dracula himself. I used Fred and Ginger from KK, background paper from Creative Imaginations Marah Johnson Collection (they have fun Vampire papers), Spellbinders Nesties, red glitter glue and MS Drippy Goo punch. I also added Glossy accents to Fred's Hair to make it shiny but you can't tell from the photo. Thanks for looking!

Ghoul School!

Time for another Burtonesque Challenge! This week it's Burton's School of Ghouls. I immediately thought of Tootsie from Simply Betty Stamps, I wanted to make her look like she was running away from the school house. HA! Because that's how I would feel if I had to go back to school, instead of hanging out with my ghoulfriends. The School House is from Tiddly Inks and I printed out the phrase. Enjoy!

Be a Girlie Girl!

I am Lovin my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I decided to play along on The Krafin' Kimmie Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge is To Be a Girlie Girl. I just love Miss Vivienne, she looks like a real Girlie Girl to me. I bet she is awlays dressed to the nines.

It was fun using my new spellbinders nesties, adding flowers, gems and glitter glue.

Thanks for looking!

It's Witchy Poo!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps have been on my wish list for awhile now and I finally got my first stamps over the weekend. Witchy Poo is my first card and she was a lot of fun to work with.

I worked with a larger card format 5 1/2 inches and more paper layering than I usually do. I like the look and will probably use that size more often. This card was not made for any challenges, just for the joy of stamping! Hope you enjoyed it!
