Spooky Smiles Halloween Tag

Playing along in Laurie’s MIM with cover plates on tags!
 Hello! I made this the other day but didn’t have time to post.

Im so excited to have the first sets from Kay!
I only had a bit of time but knew I wanted to add them 
to my tag. I used: Spooky Smiles Stamp Set

I blended ink then stamped the image. 
I had a bit of black strip on the top to the tag and didn’t like it
 so I added a white layer over the very tip of the tag.
Love the new sets from Kay! 
Better hurry they are going fast!

Hope you have a great day , friends!

Birthday Cake Anyone!

CAS(E) this Sketch #186
 Hi there again, sorry so many post in one week.

I was so happy to see this beautiful sketch and saw it as a way to share my cake card
with this amazing new set from Concord & 9th  Happy Day  stamp. 
 I saw the triangles as the slanted flowers bordering the bottom of the cake. 

I couldn’t make up my mind which one I liked best so I posted both

I used my Zig pens on both, one is more watercolored, the other is 
with just the pens and less water. I also added some: Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops  to the cake.

Thank you for the visit!
Hope you have a great weekend!

 Simon Says: Summer Fun
It's my birthday month so
always summer fun with a cake.

A Few Cards for Today

 by Lexi

Hello and a happy Monday to you! I have one card for MIM and one just for fun!
 I love this little set by Lexi and needed a get well card , so I just used the same set created and used by Lexi. 

I made this one over the weekend with my Purple Onion Designs stamps. I was pleasantly suprised with the size of the picnic basket and tray of treats. Since Im not the best with overall coloring, like I do many times, I left the large image uncolored .  I colored the smaller images and then fussy cut them out and added Nuvo Crystal drops.
I had so much fun creating this card I made a few at the same time.

I have a container on my card: the picnic basket!

Bookmark and Blooms

Michele Ferguson
Hi friends!  Michele is our featured artist this round,
 I knew I wanted  to play along. Look at the beautiful tag Michele made. 
Below is my version , not far from Michele’s

I cut all my flowers on white card stock using: Wplus9, Bountiful Blooms, 
then blended inks in the colors I wanted. The bookmark is from: Paper Smooches, Bookmarks.  
I accidentally blended the wrong side of the book mark, the other side has nice rounded edges.
 I used a stencil from Papertrey Ink .

I hope you have a great weekend !

Using a Tiny Bit of Felt

Hello! Happy August to you! We have a new challenge: just use fabric!
As you can see I only used a tiny bit on my card today.
 You have a chance to win a $20 to the Serendipity Stamps store, 
all you have to do is add fabric to your card and one Serendipity Stamps product .

I couldn’t make up my mind what card I liked best ,
so I added them both.

I stamped the Christening Gown in pink, then added some felt flowers. 
 I used the tiny things from the Little Critters set, 
All I did was pinch and sew to make the flowers.
