Dancing Skeletons

Here's an adorable stamp of a dancing skeleton.  I got this stamp for just a dollar somewhere, most likely michaels, it was a wood mount.  I paired it with some gorgeous lace from Istanbul, Turkiye.  

Can you all believe we are halfway through this month?  Thanks so much for everyone who doesn't LOVE skulls and Halloween as much as I do putting up with me!  I just had to get a chance to use SOME of my huge Halloween collection this year.

Cheers and Happy Sunday

Fall Leaves

Here are some more beautiful pressed leaves that I got from a fellow church member.  She loves to press various leaves that she finds and I take them and make greeting cards for the church's bazaar.

Happy Halloween

Here's a card I made with some super cute skeletons and some great papers from Paper Temptress.  I love that I can combine Halloween with my love of skeletons, but as you know, it's never really stopped me from enjoying them on cards!

The base of the card is white cardstock, Neenah solar white classic crest.  If you want to make square cards but only have 8.5x11" card stock, fold it in half and cut out a 5.5" square card.  I then added a wonderful Hambly Studio Overlay on top of it.  I just love the Lime Green color for Halloween (well, let's be honest, Halloween and many other) times.  This paper is called Lime Mini Graph.  I added a cute set of stamped skeletons on Neenah Solar White, layered on Silver, layered on Black glossy.

Here comes Peter Cottontail....

Ever wonder what Peter Cottontail does during Halloween?
Here's an adorable Halloween bunny stamp (sorry I don't know who makes it, feel free to tell me if you do).  It has this funny sentiment with it which of course reminds me of the old sentiment about Petter Cottontail.  We used to hear that song so much around easter time when I was a kid.  Am I showing my age with that?

I don't know what kids see at easter or at Halloween nowadays.  I might be too ScArEd to see it. lol

Have a great day!

Life is better

I am sharing a quick and cute image from Unity Stamps today. I just loved this adorable bird and the sentiment that he came with. I used some great embossing on the card and paired blue, orange and green together today.  Not my usual color set, but I am trying to use some different colors some days.
Hope you had a great week and are planning something special this weekend.  If you are here in America and get the Monday off, enjoy your three day weekend.  I will be working on Monday, though the kids will not be at the school.

Trick or Treat!

Here's an adorable Halloween card using some cute die cuts and some great paper from Paper Temptress.  I just love orange and black and most especially SKULLS and skeletons, so needless to say, Halloween time is one of my favorite card making times of the year.
I am using Basic Black as the base of this card.  I cut out three adorable Skeletons (Yvonne Creations) in Heavenly White paper and glued them on to the card.  I added a single strip of Flame Mica/Metallic to give the final card a little shimmer.

Sugar Skull

Here's a recent die cut that I got, I just had to make some cards using some awesome skulls and skeletons dies that just came out.  Here's one that I used another product called a Wobble with.  Those are items that will make one object on your card spring back and forth so I added a little video on the bottom of this posting so you could see how it looks when it wobbles.

First here's the card


Here's a short (a few seconds) showing the skull wobbling

Witches Brew

Here's a recent image that I got from The East Wind.  I thought she would be perfect for a Halloween theme card.  I colored up her dress in red and added some witchy theme embellishments as well as some cool skull paper for her card.

I just got some awesome Skull/skeleton die cuts that I hope to get some cards made before Halloween to share.  But if not, you all know I never need to have Halloween as my excuse to share skull theme cards :)

Cheers, Holley

It's never too late....

Here's an awesome image from Sherri Baldy this month.  She's just TOO cute!  This lady in a robe with her fuzzy bunny slippers are fabulous! I added a sweet sentiment "It's never too late to start the day over."   I am also using some great lace that I got while in Istanbul.
