Halloween personal cards

Image is a  Tiddly Inks digital image colored with Copics. The bat is covered with Diamond Glaze. On her hair and around the edge of the die cut I used a purple Spica glitter pen. The entire green background is a designer sheet of paper.
I stamped a Bo Bunny image in green and then did some coloring with Twinkling H2os. I added some crystal lacquer to his eyes. I mounted him to Tim Holtz grunge paper, cut him out and popped him up. The background is designer paper.
This image is a layered chipboard I have had for ages. It's pretty cute. I added some fun fibers because it is for a 3 year old.
A big chipboard spider I painted with Twinkling H2os
A chipboard bat. I added some gems for his eyes.
Colored with Copics. The top portion of the cakes are covered with Diamond Glaze.
This last one is a digital image.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. I made a total of 17. Most are for my family. Some for friends. I would have liked to have made more for my friends but I waited until the last minute.
 I love Halloween. I enjoy all of the little kids and even the teenagers. I love them all dressed up and I love them when they don't dress up. Last year we had about 100 kids. I have Rice Krispy Treats to give out. I opened 1 box already. I had too. I ate all of the plain ones and left the flavored to give away. I don't like them so much. My oldest daughter and her 20 year old daughter will be here to help give out the treats. The granddaughter will be dressed in costume. We always have a good time.

Winter Wishes

The OWH midweek throw down is for a winter card. I posted this on Facebook but decided I would also blog it.

I used a precolored digi from The Paper Shelter. For the parts with snow I used a glaze pen to make it pop. The blue paper is from Bo Bunny. The sentiment is an Imaginisce stamp stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue Ink. The ribbon is May Arts wrinkle ribbon. The bottom embossed section is done with pearlescent paper

Love is in the air

Last week I made 6 of this card for OWH. Very much a card for a young girl. The pink paper is shiny and the green is entirely built in glitter gloss paper. Because ATG doesn't always stick when glossy paper is underneath, I used brads to hold the top layer to it. I had another look at this card. It wasn't on the card base yet. I added a pink Prima flower under the brad on the top left. That is what my little grand daughter would tell me it needed. And ribbons too. lol And maybe some jewels.

From one sheet of this Best Creations dinosaur paper I managed to make 9 cards by chopping it into images. The striped paper is from the same line. I am sure you can see that there is a lot of built in glitter embossing on this paper. On 3 of the cards I had scraps that I was able to cut a dinosaur from and pop up. This is my contribution for little boy cards.

I now have 27 card fronts that need to be mounted onto bases. I guess I will do that today before I start another card.

Multiply the fun-Midweek Throwdown

The OWH mid week throw down was to make multiples. Our samples were provided by Pam T. The design for my cards is a CASE from Pam. She was kind enough to give the measurements. The first card is like hers.The first 2 cards were sent out in a box earlier this week. I made a few of each. The last card I am ready to mount onto the base. I have 12 of these. The patterned paper is Bo Bunny. The first 2 cards I used Basic Grey papers.
