best witches

Hi!  Wasn't it nice to see a post from Cheryl??  She needs more time to craft.  Anyway, I was inspired by the sketch at Some Odd Girl and the recipe challenge #20 over at Paper Works Co to make a little something.  It's my first time with the Paper Works Co challenge though I've visited the site often for their cute Rachelle A. Miller stamps.  Thought I'd give this challenge a try after spotting it on Corinne's blog as well.  The recipe calls for an image that "floats," ribbon and brads/eyelets.

Here's the SOG sketch.

Here's my card using SOG's Witchy Tia.  I was so excited for so many different reasons to make this card.  Kristy over at SOG celebrated her birthday with a sale so I picked up some digital images.  I think it's still on until this weekend.  But you might remember me saying I didn't like my printer because my images always smeared with my Copics even after a night of drying or heat setting.  BUT I realized with my new addiction to colored pencils that I didn't really have to worry about this anymore since I don't use OMS either.  AND the other great thing??  You can change the outline color of the stamp image!  So I printed this out in a light peach tone instead of black for that no black lines look. 

AND I'm also excited cause I just bought my first set of Prisma colored pencils today.  I've been using a combination of Crayola/Hello Kitty/Rose Art pencils.  I'll try the Prisma colored pencils tonight!  I was so lucky to win a gift card to Ben Franklin from Joy's blog and it came just in time to use with my 40% off coupon.  It really helped with the purchase.

Back to my card!  The tag and sentiment is from PTI.  I wrapped some black and orange ribbon around the card and attached a purple brad to the tag.  And witches on broomsticks float, right?  Hopefully, that qualifies.  Hehe. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

First of all............GREAT CHIBI g/f!! Dontcha just love them! images smear too . I find they smear more when I JUST change the ink tanks.......when the ink nears the end of the tank, that is when I get the best bang for my buck with my copics! (Also my laser printer at work works real well, but don't tell my boss...haha).....This image is colored perfectly. Your no black lines is perfection! YAY for halloween and birthdays!! Thanks so much for being ODD with us this week. Take Care.

Looooove this, Eva!! Hope you win on both challenges. You did a fantastic job on our PWCO's You Float My Boat challenge!! A witch's broom totally floats :). And your take on the sketch is awesome! I love your scene, especially the stars paper, and embossed moon. Your coloring is amazing! Thanks for the tip on changing the ink color for the no lines look. As always, fab coloring. I almost attempted colored pencils but that'll be another story, lol! Thanks for the mention, girly, and for playing with us at PWCO!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
