Frightening Feline (in every literal sense of the word!)

Okay, so I made this card and as I was photographing it, I realized how FRIGHTENING it actually is! lol. Those are JUST Basic Jewels on his eyes, not googlie ones, can you believe that? How CREEPY! Anyway, I used The Howlstooth DSP as my background paper and color scheme, the orange is Tangerine Tango and and Basic Black and Very Vanilla cardstocks.  I also used the spider web from Wicked Cool and stamped it in Basic Gray. And the CREEPY cat is from the Holiday Mini called Frightening Feline.  I then tied a bow from the 1/8th Basic Black Taffeta ribbon and Mono Multi'd it to the cat. Happy Halloween!

Jolly Bingo Bits

I told you before I LOVE these Bingo Bits, both Jolly and Spooky, but I was ready to break out some more Christmas ideas, so this is what I came up with.  I layered Whisper White cardstock on top of each other, ran the smaller layer throught the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  I cut two strips of Gumball Green with the Finishing Touches die and adhered it behind a strip of Be of Good Cheer DSP.  I then stamped random images from Jolly Bingo Bits in Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Soft Suede and punched them out with the 1" circle punch and popped them up on the DSP.  I then stamped Merry in Soft Suede onto Gumball Green cardstock from the set Tiny Tags and punched with the Jewelry Tag punch and adhered to the gingerbread image with an Vintage Trinket safety pin.  It's hard to see in this photo, but it's all spritzed with Frost White shimmer mist~

No Peeking Twisted Card

So, I needed to step away from my craft fair stuff for a bit and just stamp for fun.  I had this tutorial lying in my pile of "want to try" for a week or so and just hunkered down and made one. It literally took me less than 10 minutes, including the stamping!  I just adore the characters in the stamp set No Peeking and the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper has my favorite red, Cherry Cobbler, so how could I have gone wrong. I have to say that I broke the seal finally after 5 months on my Doiley Die! CRAZY! Anyway, I colored the penquin with markers, Gumball Green, Basic Gray, and Cherry Cobbler and then stamped it onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it out with the 1 3/8 circle punch. I stamped the To/From in Gumball Green and also onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then looped some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon through the end.
