Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #244 Halloween

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #244 Halloween
Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Kim is hosting today's challenge # 244
and the theme is 'Halloween'.

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it follows the Halloween theme.

I used a wooden plague my late husband had made many years ago and painted it black.

The scene was created by cutting out a square piece of cardstock from the Recollections 'blackbird' collection (titled 'glowing orange'). I then adhered the spooky tree (Memory Box 'Grand Willow Tree'), the two paper bats (handmade) , the 2 black zigzaggy border trims ('Spooky Fence' by Cottage Cutz), then to finish it off the round 'moon'   created by cutting out the Spider Fang circle and the 31 from a page of Halloween images I found in my stash. I added half pearls just because.

Happy Halloween everyone!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #243 Add Some Sparkle


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #243 Add Some Sparkle

Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Marlene is hosting today's challenge # 243
and the theme is 'Add Some Sparkle'.

 As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the theme.

I chose die-cuts instead of images and some fabulous paper.   I also added some of the punched out zig-zaggy leftovers from the die-cut tree to the bottom of the card, so no colouring which speeded up the process.

Card Details
Punch: star (brand unknown)
Die Cuts: Deer, set by Cottage Cutz, Tim Holtz Woodland trees, Snow Die 141482 Thinlets Detailed Floral

A simple card, easy to make and Christmasy.
