Retrosketches # 80!

Hello There!

Back to Halloween cards again today………(love these! ) with a card for Retrosketches. This week it is Challenge # 80 and here is the sketch………..


I played around with this for quite a while turning it on its side and looking at the different possible ways of arranging the elements. In the end I settled on using the sketch pretty much as shown above with the addition of some sprinkles in the top right corner where I felt my card lacked balance.I also rounded a few corners!………I can seldom make a card without using my corner rounder!!

So here is my card…………

I really love this weeks Muse and was very tempted to use a wildflower set  (that I really should break out!)  and do some masked stamping much like on the beautiful card Marion created.

Freshly made Sketches # 99


Today I have a card that I made for the latest challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

Lately I have been on a bit of a Halloween crafting Kick!………..It is one of my favourite holidays! So I couldn’t resist using the sketch to create another Halloween Card.

Here is the sketch by Rita………

FMS Final 99-001

And here is my card………



I just love all of the Halloween stamp sets from Paper Smooches so had to use another of these images, The cute little pumpkin for this card! I did a little basic Copic colouring and kept the rest of the card simple.

Supplies: Card – PTI White, Bazzill Liquorice. Patterned Papers – Doodlebug Haunted Manor 6×6 pad. Dies – SSS Tri-Square die. Stamps – Paper Smooches Hallowenies. Ink – Mementoo Tuxedo black, Versafine Onyx Black. Copic Markers YR16, YG23.

See you again soon with another card!

Muse Challenge # 29


First of all I have to say how much I am enjoying the Muse Challenge blog! Having a Muse is very inspirational in fact even the word muse inspires me! I also particularly love the way this Challenge blog gets is all interacting with each other by commenting and voting…..I love it!

So on to this weeks Muse………



And here is the card I came up with…………


As I mentioned in my last post I really  love holiday cards….all types! But my favourite is Halloween I could make them all day but living in the UK is not the best for a Halloween lover like me as we do not really celebrate it much and very few people give Halloween cards… boo!  But at least I can make them for my blog right?……Yay!  So look out fro more Halloween cards coming up soon!

My interpretation of the Muse uses the layout of the sketch for my card. This layout is a great design offering scope for many themes or styles of cards.

Supplies: Card – SU Black, MFT Grape Jelly. Patterned paper – Doodlebug haunted Manor 6×6 pad. Stamps – Paper Smooches Halloweenies. Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black. Copic markers – YG23, YG25, YR16, YR18, C3, C5, C7, V15 and V17. Dies – MFT Sentiment Strips. Punch – Martha Stewart Bat. Jewels – Doodlebug Halloween Collection.
