Trick Or Treat!

For the Fall themed challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
This card was assembled from various bits and pieces from my Halloween craft box. I really have to get my supplies in better order as it has begun to put a damper on my creating, I can never find anything! If you have any organizational tips, I would love to hear. I've started by organizing things together by season but hope to refine that even more.
Have a beautiful day! Fall is in the air here, for sure. Crisp mornings and evenings and lovely color changes on the trees. Not too many leaf droppers in my yard which is sad for the beauty of it but great for less raking :)

Love You

What a fun set to bring a smile to someone's day! This is called Really Hungry by The Project Bin.
It would make some great valentines in addition to all occasion cards.
I used a retired Basic Grey designer paper collection. Sorry that I don't know the name of it, I often get rid of packaging to save space. I seem to remember Infuse, not 100 per cent sure. Stamped the tomatoes on a stitched heart die cut and the sentiment on a strip of the designer paper.

As paper crafters this beautiful sentiment says it all. Never underestimate the value of one of your handmade creations and how it will bring joy to someone's day! 
This stamp (actually a set of three) from The Project Bin is called Keepsake. You can use it as a sentiment or add it to the back of your card creations. Don't forget to sign and date your cards for an extra special touch, it's a great way to keep track of special occasions.

Snome Time

I love the new gnome holiday stamps from Craft Consortium called "It's Snome Time". This is my first attempt at the no line style of coloring, I almost always stamp the images in black. For this card I used Gina K amalgam ink in Warm Glow which works beautifully with Copic markers. I went over everything with the fine tip of Stampin' Up! markers to match and added some highlights with white acrylic paint and some glitter to the images.

Present Shaker

For the Jingle Belles Tag Challenge this week. I can't get enough tags, I make and send them in batches to my sisters since they have a lot of grandchildren. This elf is from Art Impressions and the present is cut out and attached to an action wobble so it shakes and jiggles. I'm sure we are all guilty of shaking a present or two! These wobbles are so much fun and an easy way to add a little something extra to a project. I bought a big bag of them on ebay a while back and really love them. See second picture for wobble works.

Turtle Travel and a Snowman

Oh, this image brings such joy, I love the sweet little smile. The set is called Love Your Shellfie and also has matching dies available. Check out The Project Bin's blog for more really cute cards made with this.
This was a fairly simple card that used a combination embossing/die cut folder (Sizzix) on white card stock. I stamped the turtle on the inside of the card and embellished with some pink sequins.

This darling set is called Merriest Christmas and the snowman and sentiments will warm your heart. A little something for everyone here. I used a designer paper for the background sky, some stitched white hill dies (Lawn Fawn), and the star (from Milky Way set) in silver. An easy card to create with the help of the coordinating dies.
