Its late Monday ok well I think its officially Tuesday but I had a few technical difficulties this week. So here is what I came up with!
You can check out the blog by starting at Shirley's
I am trying out brayering and I must say that it is not quite as easy as some people make it out to be - but I am getting better! It took me a couple of tries to get the look I wanted for the back ground. I used Whisper White Card stock for the picture - and brayered with Daffodil Delight, Cajun Crazye, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray, and Night of Navy. I sponged using Daffodil delight, Old Olive and Basic Gray. Then I stamped versa mark on the house and embossed with Black embossing powder.
Then I stamped the saying and embossed with Black again, and the bats are black stazon. I stamped the characters Love Frank the most!!!! With Black stazon and used a combo of markers and chalks to colour and highlight. The Bags are from Spooky Bingo Bits and are embossed with Tangerine Tango embossing powder these were all cut out and popped up with Stampin Dimensionals. The Card base is Old Olive and the corner accents are Basic black punched with the stamp punch.
Inside is my halloween Tree - the Die is the Big Shot O Christmas Tree. I cut the tree in basic black and decorated with halloween confetti and feathers for the webs. The top and bottom are wheeled out with Halloween Hangups and basic black.
Feel free to join in the fun!!!

Now if Tracy checks out my blog this week she will be very impressed as she knows how much I LOVE (not) fussy cutting things! But I really thought this card was screaming out for it and I love the way it turned out.
As you can see I used a lot of technique and products on this card but it was so fun I am just loving the out on a limb set~
So here is the list!
Basic Black Card stock, Whisper white Cardstock, Frightful site DSP
Inks - Versa Mark, Wild Wasabi, Basic Gray, Stazon Black, Rich Razzelberry, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake
Wicked Cool for the bats and phrase
And Out on a limb for all other stamped images
Web Embossing folder for the big shot
Whisper white INK on the web!
I used Mica flakes to highlight the moon and Dazzling details for the cats eyes.
My Yellow spider is cut out with Doodle Charms for the Cricut.
Hope you enjoy the Hop!

I got a little inspiration from the Monster Mash Blog hop and now I am on a roll. This one is just because -I will keep my Blog Hop creation a secret until Monday!
Hope you Enjoy
Well here is my first attempt at brayering ( is that a word?) Anyway I thought it added some depth and dimension to my card
I used Lucky Limeade for my card base and I ran three sides of it through the scallop square Big Shot Die. I then used the brayer to make it look kind of eerie with Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Island indigo. Then I heat embossed the stamp Haunted Forest with black embossing powder. I used the ticked punch in the corners and layered onto the black card stock added silver brads and some Pumpkin Pie Ribbon!

As I was looking through the Artisan Award winners blog hop series - found a really cute video from Heather Summers! A VERY talented lady from the group of girls in London. I get so much inspiration from everyone at our quarterly meetings - But Heather is the icing on the cupcake for me!
I tried to recreate a cute Triple Layer Card that Heather has on her site - just the design the stamping and DSP was my thing.
The only problem I ran into was the second layer did not quite fit the way it should. My next one will be better I will play around with the sizing and see if I can get this style of card to lay just a little better for me.
So here is what I came up with!
The saying and most of the stamps used are from the very cool set Wicked Cool - in the new Catalogue but is carried over from the Holiday Mini from last year! Love this set!
I used Cajun Craze to make the pull tab and used a matching glimmer brad to add a little bling!
Here is where you can see what I did wrong the dimensions on the second layer are off slightly so the card does on look equal - it looks a little on the funky side. The Spooktacular saying in the middle is from a retired set but I still like it -
And the DSP is called Frightful Site!
Pretty fun card!

I had a serious problem with my work space and everything was a huge mess --I meant to take a picture of it before we got started on Mission Organization!
The room is ALMOST complete but I felt so happy about being a little more organized I had to create a card. And since I am a night hawk UGH! I made this little cutie!
I used the Delicate Doillies Stamp set and clear embossed the Lucky Limeade but since some of Dazzling Diamonds got mixed into my clear embossing powder, there is a little sparkle to all my clear embossing right now.
I used a piece of Flirtatious DSP So very pretty and placed that on a distressed piece of whisper white card stock then tied aWisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon to that layer.
Next I used the rock and roll technique with Wisteria wonder and Concord crush and stamped out a doily and added a matching polka dot brad. All of this was layered on a regular size card base of Wisteria Wonder!
Then I got playing with Up and Away! I cased this but I cannot remember who I got the inspiration from
Have a great Monday!
