Happy Halloween

Good Morning!

Boy I'm on a roll this week! This is my 4th and last card for this week. The other day while I was surfing the net I found some inspiration from Market Street Stamp designer Julie Day . I haven't used my brayer in such a long time.So when I saw her card, I knew I had to do something with it. I also grabbed some  inspiration from Michelle Zindorf. I love her cards! This card is also for a very special block party. Market Street Stamps is celebrating their first year in business!! Congrats!  I must say I'm a very loyal shopper. LOL my Clip it up  is filled with their stamps. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us in the next coming year.

For the inside I kept it very simple.

Card Details:
Size: 5x7
Layers: Decrease every  1/4 inch, inside layers 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 and 6 x 4
Card Stock:  Paper Trey Ink and Stampin' up.
Ink: Stampin' up and Memento.
Stamps: Market Street Stamps "Night Owls,"  "Sweet Spooks," and "Woodgrain."
Twine: The Twinery.
Image Colored with: Prisma Colored Pencils (this time I blended with  the Prisma colorless blender marker. I normally blend with the colorless pencil).
Other: Diamond Glaze and pop dots.

**The Tree was handmade. I took my versa marker and went around the edge of the branch in the stamp set "Night Owls." I stamped it on brown card stock and then hand drew the trunk of the tree around it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Yum Pumpkin Pie!

So yesterday when I had some free time to my self I decided to look at some challenges. This card is based of  Peachy Keen's Sketch Challenge 62. I haven't entered it because I rather enter a card that contains more Peachy Keen Stamps. Yes I know you don't have to use them for the sketch challenge, but I like to. It's more challenging that way. So where did this card end up?   On Market Street Stamps Face book page. If you make anything with their stamps you can post it on the face book page, Twitter, Flicker group, or Split Coast Stampers gallery.  They will look through all the posts and then pick out the cream of the crop. If they pick you, you will receive a 20$ gift cert to their store and your project and blog(or gallery) will be posted on their blog. Very cool if you ask me!

Card Details:
Size: 7 1/2x 4 1/2
Layers: 7 1/4 x 3 3/4, 7x3, 6.5x 2.5, and  6 3/8x 2.5

Stamps: Market Street Stamps " Happy Pumpkin," " Comfort Food,"  and "Simple Joys." Peachy Keen Stamps "Small Polka Dot Print."

Babci's Birthday Card

Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since I've posted. September has been very busy. It started off with my brothers car breaking down  in Yonkers. A little too close to NYC for me, but I had to drive him down there to surrender the title to the garage. It wasn't worth it to tow it all the way up the Orange county. So in Yonkers it stays.  Besides that my boyfriend is working out of Jersey. This will thankfully be the last week he is down there. It's such a long drive and no offense Jersey, but you people drive the manics on  80 and 287. Anyways I do have a card for you all. This card was for my Babci's (grandmother) birthday.

Card Details:
Size: 5x7
Card Stock: Paper Trey Ink
Ink: Stampin' Up
Stamps: Market Street Stamps "Autumn Greetings,"  Paper Trey Ink " Birthday Basics."
Image colored with: Prisma Colored Pencils.
Other:  Scallop border punch by Stampin' up, Cuttlebug folder "Victoria,"  Paper Trey  Ink " Double ended Border" die, and Paper Trey Ink Twine.
