Here’s my second card entry for the C C Designs Summer contest. I used a mermaid and seal stamp set from Sweet November and some Astrobrights metallic papers for the backgrounds, her tail and the seal, they have a wonderful shimmer to them!

With the new Inkadinkado Stamping Gear tool. I recently did a review at Craft Gossip for this cool new stamping tool, click here to check it out.
Here’s a few of the projects I made with it:
Made some cute cards with my new Cricut Mini die cutting machine. I like this mini machine better than any of the other Cricuts I’ve tried. It hooks to your computer and it’s so much easier to see what you’re doing, change sizes and make adjustments on the computer screen.
I love this cool Bride of Frankenstein, she’s from the Movable Monsters collection.
This cute owl come from the Create a Critter cartridge, it has such adorable animals and accessories to go with them.

Been playing around with more new Halloween stamps from Inkadinkado.
I’m in love with the Voodoo Doll stamps, a cute witch and funky cat. I thought they’d make perfect shrink plastic charms so I stamped them on white shrink plastic using Staz-On ink, colored them with colored pencils, punched a hole for the jump rings and strung them on a chain. I also added a small domino with the word “Voodoo”.
This Death Head Moth stamp is spooky but also seemed a little vintage to me, like an insect specimen so I made a collage with a vintage feel with it. It’s on layers of pattern paper embellished with vintage lace, a vintage button and a chipboard label with brads.
This X-Ray of a Trick or Treat bag is just so evil! Along with the candy there is a razor blade in the apple, brass knuckles and a big knife. Probably not a stamp for everyone but I like twisted things so I think it’s really cool I added some poison labels cut from some pattern paper and added the color tinting with small sponges and ink.
K and Company that is I recently got an amazing box full of goodies from K and Co. to review at Craft Gossip from their brand new “Beyond Postmarks” line. It’s got a bunch of cool cards and embellishments that move, pull out, pop up, etc. really cool.
Here are the cards I made, quick and easy but so fun.
I think the rabbit pulled out of the hat is my fave
This week over on Craft Gossip I did a review of Pentel art supplies.I really liked everything I tried especially the tube watercolors and the Hybrid technica pen. I used them to make a primitive witch collage for Halloween. I drew her in pencil on watercolor paper, used a Pentel water brush and watercolors to color her in then went over my pencil lines with the Hybrid pen, her hair was done with their Pocket Brush pen. I cut her dress, mask and hat from pattern paper.
I also used some of their gel pens and markers for a couple of cards.
This card uses stamps from Lawn Fawn colored with markers.
These stamps are from Inkadinkado and colored with gel pens.
Here’s a link to my complete review over on Craft Gossip if you’d like to check it out.
This big guy better be careful or he’s going to set his pinwheel on fire!
This weeks Lawnscaping Challenge is to use dimension. I just got the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After set and I ADORE it! I decide to give my card a lot of dimension by making a 3-D pinwheel and adding thick foam dots behind my dragon. All stamps are from Lawn Fawn and the pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket.
Just wanted to share a couple of cards I made recently.
This one uses a stamp from the Character Construction’s Bird and Bee Paperie line. I adore how the bunny’s tale is poking out in the back! The paper I used is My Mind’s Eye.
The next card uses stamps from Stampin’ Up’s set Just Buzzin’ By. I used a glitter pen on the bee’s wings and liquid dimensional adhesive (aka, liquid glass, crystal lacquer, etc) on the honey to give it some shine. I used Echo Park paper on this one.
Both cards were colored with Prisma Color Pencils and odorless mineral spirits (aka Gamsol)
