Fresh Apple Pie

I hope you are enjoying all the fun Fall/Halloween stamps the design team is sharing this month. 

This is "Milton's Fall Harvest". He looks so proud of all his apples! For me this stamp reminded me of all of the fresh, warm apple pie and apple crisp my mom made when we were growing up. She sometimes made apple dumplings too but not too often so they were a special treat for us. 



Close Up


After colouring the stamp with alcohol markers I cut him out using a stitched rectangle die. I added some paper from Jillibean, Carta Bella and some from my stash. I added some texture by running some plain cardstock through an embossing folder and using some burlap ribbon. The sentiment was created on my computer. Milton is popped up with pop dots as there are lots of layers of paper underneath him. A quilled apple from my stash finishes off my card.

Halloween ATC Tags -- High Hopes Stamps

Happy Friday!!!!!!
I've been working on Artist Trading Cards (ATC's)  as part of a trade I joined in on awhile back.  I decided to include some fun Halloween recipes and the Halloween Mini Set from High Hopes is perfect for food related Halloween Fun!!!
I made two different ATC recipe tags being "Candy Corn Jello Cups and Spooky 7 Layer Dip.
How fun is that?? Its the kinda thing I would make for my co-workers on one of our traditional Food Celebration Days at work. Last year I made these cupcakes for them using the same set ...
Honestly this stamp set rocks!! I love it :)
Okay .... so the back of the tags have the Recipe details. All the papers are from One Crazy Stamper, they have the best selection of Halloween pattern papers in town!
Thick twine, plastic spiders, black sewing stitches, pumpkins and hand typed Recipe banners helped create these tags.
Lastly a quick pic of my cat helping create the ATC tags! I think she's sick of wearing a fur coat on these hot and humid Summer Days were having!
Thanks for peeking! Wishing you a great Weekend. Hope you get crafty and create some Fall and Halloween designs! I would love to see your creations in our Current challenge found here!

Wanna Hang Out?

Happy Wednesday OCS Fans! 

I had a little bit of fun with my card this week. I challenged myself...to use tissue paper and material instead of patterned paper. It was an interesting experiment! 

I used "Just Hanging Out and Bat" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 


Close Up


After colouring the stamps with alcohol markers I fussy cut them out. I went one step further with my fussy cutting and cut out our cute vampire's cape. I added some pale orange and silver material from a Halloween bag I found. Sparkle was also added to the bats just for fun. 
I used some white tissue paper I received with a gift - I wanted a used piece so I had some texture. I very carefully! stamped my cob web and fence and glued it onto the back of the black frame I made out of cardstock. I used some orange and black patterned paper to create a second frame and mounted it to black cardstock. The sentiment was created on my computer and voila! A few orange gumdrops finish off my card.

Stamps: Just Hanging Out (R125), Bat (H267) High Hopes Rubber Stamps
Sentiment: Mistral font - computer
