Sugar Skull Cards

I just cannot get enough of these Sugar Skulls whether it is form the Flower Market Cartridge or the adorable Sugar Skull Stamp set. Here are two more Sugar Skull cards.

jeepers-creepers-sugar-skull-catscrapbooking-comFor this card I used Jeepers Creepers paper pack, Flower Market – Sugar Skull, and Sugar Skull stamp set.  I used my blender pen to add the willow green to the stamped leaves.

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #213 we are challenging you to combine White Daisy, Black, Lagoon, Lemon, Tangerine, Raspberry, Emerald and Pansy .  If you know Close to My Heart new papers then you will realize these colors correspond to Jeepers Creepers paper pack.

color-dare-213I have been seeing a lot of cute cards made with the Monstrous Halloween stamp set so I decided to partake.  I needed some new fun kids birthday cards so I changed things up

jeeper-creepers-monstrous-halloween-birthday-catscrapbooking-comI used masking to block out the Halloween which is part of the sentiment and then used a birthday stamp.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #213 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday October 6, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Sugar Skull Wreath

I have seen a couple really awesome wreaths made using strips of pattern paper around various sized rings. I decided it was time to make my own instead of just admiring them from a far.  So this weekend I sat down and designed my Halloween Sugar Skull Wreath.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-wreath-sugar-skull-flower-market-catscrapbooking-comI am so in love with the new Flower Market and used the fun Sugar Skull #md72cd2, Halloween banner #md72c8a and Daisy #mfadcf2. I used the Jeepers Creepers paper pack with Tangerine, Whisper, Slate and Black.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-wreath-detail-sugar-skull-flower-market-catscrapbooking-comHere is a close up of the details.  I used the Enamel and Glitter Duos Blue Dots on the Sugar Skull.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-wreath-detail-flower-market-catscrapbooking-comI used the new shimmer brush to add to sparkle to the flowers. I also used liquid glass in the center of the daisy flowers.

This wreath is made by wrapping 1.5 inch by 12 inch strips around a 14 inch foam wreath.

I could not do this hop with our featuring Halloween since it is probably my most favorite holiday to celebrate.  So I designed a fun Halloween card for you today.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-card-silly-spider-web-catscrapbooking-comI have to admit using black as my card base is new territory for me but it so fit with Halloween.  I love this Silly Spider Web B1529 stamp set.  I just love the Jeepers Creepers paper pack. To make the black twine I simply took our white twine and used our black Shin Han Marker and colored it.  I used some black glitter paper, Shimmer Brush and my blending pen to add ink to my stamped spider web.

Your next stop is along this hop is MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.
