Helloooooooo there!! It's our last Halloween 
Coloring Down the Lines 
blog hop of 2016!!! Where did the month go?! 

You may have arrived here from Helen's blog! Enjoy here then hop on to Lizzy's blog!!! They're hauntingly fun this week!!

Here's my card:

Here's the inspiration photo:

for some reason I can't get it to download to my computer! But it's a cute ghost that says "Create a Halloween Project"  Boo hoo!!!

This week I decided to have some fun! I've been dying to use my new      Paisley Framelits! Hint: you'll see a lot of them next month! Wow are they awesome!!! But I just thought they had the best ghost shape!

So I pulled out the Silver Glimmer Card stock & cut a few out! Aren't they cute?? I just simply cut them out!!! I used my small circle punches to make the eyes & mouths!!!

Heat embossed the sentiment with my Layered Letters Alphabet stamps. Backed them all on Basic Black then on a piece of Pink Flamingo DSP! So boo to you!! lol  Now I know the pic looks like I got White Embossing Powder everywhere on the card, but no. I used the Aqua Painter & splattered a bit of Whisper White Ink refill to give a bit of attention to the background. It looks good in real life! Trust me! lol

So I hope you and yours have a fun & safe Halloween next Monday!!! We will be "thanking" you for joining us next week!

Happy Haunting ( I mean Stampin'!!!)

Here's my card:

Here's the inspiration photo:

So I hope you're not sick of these little guys, because I could stamp & punch them out all day long!!! Soon I'll have to put them away! So I thought one last CDTL week with my buddies will work!

So the name of the stamp set is Cookie Cutter Halloween! The guys are cut using the Cookie Cutter Punch!  I just simply embossed the background matte using the Seaside Textured Embossing Folder.  I used my Layered Letters & Labeler Alphabet stamps for the words. Threw in a little  
Pink Flamingo Washi Tape & some Halloween Bakers Twine & it's a cute little card!!!

So there's one more week of Halloween treats! Next week I promise something "spooookkkkyyyy" just for you!!!

Happy Stampin'!

It's October! Halloween time at 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!  
Well I'm sort of changing it up a bit yet staying on track. Clear as mud?! lol

Hoppers this week are here from Amanda's Crafty Playdate!!! Head over to Lizzy's when you are through!!! Enjoy the projects my friends have to share with you!!!

So here's my card this week:

Here's the inspiration photo:

So this week we are supposed to do Halloween! Well mine is a Halloween Birthday card! I'm not a huge Halloween fan. I think the holidays get rushed, so to me, Halloween is more fall-like! I actually made this card for a friend whose birthday is on Halloween! So I wanted it to be about her! But the pumpkin keeps it seasonal!

This was such a simple card but I think it really packs a punch.  Simple yet fun!  The only stamping really here is the sentiment from the BYOP stamp set! The pumpkin parts were cut with the Oval Framelits and the Paisley Framelits. The edges of the pumpkin were sponged to add some depth.  

The background DSP is from the Serene Scenery Pack, and the 
Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folder makes the neat background for the pumpkin.   The Linen Thread and Burlap Ribbon add just enough of a finishing touch.

So while not traditional Halloween per se, it works for a Halloween birthday card-makes it about her birthday and not just Halloween! Happy birthday Melissa!!!!

Happy Stampin'!

Here we are in October already!!! Our 
Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop 
this month is all about fall!!! And what's more fall than Halloween?!  So I decided my fall creation would be Halloween!!

Here's my design:

It's a cute little 5"x7" sampler to go into a frame or just display. I actually have a frame for it but it didn't photograph well, so here it is-naked! lol!

I've been getting quite a bit of use of the Cookie Cutter suite from the 
Holiday Catalog! The little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween cut out with the Cookie Cutter Punch!  And of course the bling is the gorgeous Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper!  
The whole "package" is tied up with the Halloween Night Bakers Twine! And the little guys are all slightly watercolored-just enough to give some texture!

I created my own DSP using the bat stamp from the set! I didn't order any Halloween DSP yet, so had to improvise!!! Right now with out Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP special I'll have to think about stocking up!!!

So just a fun little Halloween sampler this month! Now hop to Tina's blog & enjoy her creation.  You ca either click on her name or the icon below! Then keep hopping until you get back here!!!  Lots of amazing Fall creations!!!! A bit early, but Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Stamping'!!!!

Coloring Fall again! For the month of October our 
Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop 
is featuring Halloween creations!!!

Maybe you're here from Helen's blog! Hi! Lizzy's blog is next!!! 
Happy Hoppin'!

Here's my card:

Here's the inspiration photo:

So Halloween creations are a bit of a challenge for me. I'm not really that into it. I love the decorations & all, but it's without little kids around, it's just one of those holidays to eat lots of candy! So I don't typically get a lot of Halloween stamping supplies! So it'll be interesting this month trying to come up with stuff! Challenge accepted!!!

That being said, I love this little card! So this stamp set,  
Cookie Cutter Halloween, is so adorable!!! It coordinates with the 
Cookie Cutter Punch. The little guys are so sweet!!! You will see different ways to use this set this month!

I created my own DSP using the little bat from the stamp set!!!  I kind of think he looks like he's "the vampire in the moon" here, although that wasn't my intent! lol

The beautiful Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper is the perfect backing for the Labeler Alphabet letters! I wanted them to pop-and I think they did here! It also worked well for his little tie! lol The "to" and "you" are stamps from My Paper Pumpkin sets! I bet they're available to you if you're a 
My Paper Pumpkin subscriber!!! Hint Hint!!! lol, hal

Wrapped it all up with some Halloween Night Baker's Twine. The little guy has watercolor touches to him! He doesn't scare me though!

So on this first week in our October blog hop, I say BOO to you!!

Happy Stampin'!
