Happy Halloween

pumpkinscary

Challenge time over at the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostesses of the month, Liz Williams & Lynn McAuley continue to bring us fun challenges.

Create a card using your favorite ghoul, ghost, monster, or witch to scare up some Halloween fun.

I don’t do Halloween so I have no ghoul, ghost or monster images so I went with a Jack ‘o Lantern cupcake using Paper Pretties Holiday Sweets I instead. Colored the image with copics. Added yellow stickles to the stars. Pulled out some “Halloween” design paper that I have and made my card. The sentiment also comes from the Holiday Sweets I set.

Clean and simple Christmas

cleansimpleajsh

Time for a Paper Pretties challenge! This week's challenge is:
CLEAN AND SIMPLE!

also This month take 50%  your entire order using promo code: HAPPYHALLOWEEN over at Paper Pretties!

Clean and Simple, huh? Sometimes I can do them and other times they don’t stay to clean and simple. But I have to say I am in love with my card and am thinking Christmas cards for this year! The only time consuming part is the complete cutout.

I used Tis the Season Sophia and colored her with copics. Used some sparkly pens for the ribbons and cut her out completely. Ran some vellum through the cuttlebug with a Christmas folder. Attached it with brads and attached Sophia with dimensionals.

The plane

storybookajh

There is still plenty of time to play in the CHF challenge over on the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog.  This week the challenge is hosted by Kelly.

This time round our challenge is to Create a card based on a favorite storybook character.

I used Toy Airplane Digital Stamp for my card. Colored it with copics and popped it up. Don’t ask me what favorite storybook character as I have no clue but there has to be some storybook out there that has a plane in it… right?? Shoot, it could be Jay Jay the Jet Plane… that is in storybook form too, right? Anyways here is my card.

    Happy first day of Fall

    sketchfallajh

    Happy Fall!! Today is the first day of Fall for us and I am so in the mood for Fall. Pumpkins, Apple Cider, Fall Colors, Hoodies, Bonfires, Hayrides, Boots and the list goes on.

    It is also time for another Cornish Heritage Farms Blog challenge! This week’s challenge is hosted by Frances. She has a sketch for us.

    CHF62sketch

    I used Pumpkin Wheelbarrow digital stamp for my card. Decided to use watercolor pencils to color the image. Did a little out of the box cutting and added some leaf brads. Thought I had the sketch in my head but when I started to do my post, I saw that I forgot to layer my sentiment. Oops!!

    H.U.G.

    HUGajh

    Time for another challenge with the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month Lois Bak has another fun challenge for us.

    This week Lois has given us a Wordplay Challenge. In honor of “Hug a Greeting Card Writer Day,” include on your card something that starts with each of the following letters – H U G.

    My H.U.G. is hiding, ugh and green, read on to see how that all fits into my card.

    I decided to use Gnome What? that was just released from North Coast Creations.  Pulled out my prismacolored pencils and went to coloring. The plan was to color the mushrooms and cut them out completely which I did. But I needed an “U” so how about Ultra thick embossing and do some cracked glass? Sure! Well, I embossed it, stuck it in the freezer and worked on the gnome.

    The gnome is also colored with prismacolored pencils. Added some clouds behind him and went and got the mushrooms. When I started cracking them, pieces of the UTEE actually started falling off!! Great now what am I gonna do? I ended up peeling most of it off so hence my UGH!

    Mushrooms are popped up with dimensions so the gnome can hide behind them.

    HUGajh

    See, you can see the ultra thick embossing on the thin pieces that I just couldn’t get off! ugh
