Cards in Envy - Let's Play Dress Up (Halloween costumes)

Cards in Envy's second challenge for October is "Let's Play Dress Up (Halloween costumes). You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. 

I made this sky background using my Tim Holtz Oxide Inks. Then just dropping water droplets on them and dabbing them with a paper towel. The Oxide inks really do make backgrounds easy!!

Cards in Envy - Blowing in the Wind (Leaves)

Cards in Envy's first challenge for October is "Blowing in the Wind" (any card using leaves).  I decided to go outside, find a leaf and I smeared some Oxide inks on it and put it through my Big Kick machine. Voila!  A leaf imprint!!  Perfect for this challenge!  You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing.

This card is perfect for a friend of mine's birthday which is next week. I hope you'll come play along at Cards in Envy.

By Golly Be Jolly

When this brand new set came out by Unity Stamps, I had to get it!! You can find it here and it's on sale now!!!  For this card, I made a mask so I could sponge my Oxide inks around the Santa. I colored him using copic markers and then added some Martha Stewart stars for my "bling".

Whale Whale Whale

The Sisterhood of Crafters - Oh Boy!
Crafty Catz - Birthday #385
Kitty Bee Designs - Water Fun


I love this whale set by Memory Box. Its great for birthday cards and baby cards. I made the background using Tim Holtz oxide inks (Salty Ocean) and then splattered it with water droplets. I typed the sentiment on my computer and printed it out. I used my Gelly Roll gold ink pen to outline some of the waves.
