I used the skull stamp from the “Boo-tiful Cameos stamp set and stamped the skulls a few times to drape my card.  The Border trim is from the Celebration Labels One & Bracket Border. I stamped the border and fussy cut it to add some texture on the end of the card.  It pops off the card which is what I wanted. I also used Spellbinders Web die and cut the die shape into pieces since the web was bigger then my card.  The branches are also some Spellbinders and the frame of the card.

World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day!  I love making cards and today, I thought I keep with the spirit of Halloween and create this little pumpkin card.

PumpkinI used Tim Holtz Pumpkin Die and cut out 2 pumpkins and glued them back to back to create my card.  Next I used Spellbinders web die and cut the die into smaller pieces for webbing.  The die was too large for what I wanted so i altered it.  Then I used a label die from Spellbinders and Authentique’s NEW Thrilling line for my paper.  The flowers are from Petaloo’s Mini Textured collection, perfect for cards!

Pumpkin details

Looking forward to seeing the Facebook boards light up with cards.  Have a great day crafting and I’ll be back.

Owl or Bat?

Owl 2

What’s so great about digital images?  Absolutely everything, especially these adorable digital images from Chi Chi Memories.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted a bat or an owl so this is what I ended up with.   This digital is from the, “Happy Halloween” set.   It’s like having a stamp that you can alter anyway you want. I’m hooked!


Happy Halloween

I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the bat since it took attention away from my stamp.  The owl won of course and so I cut the bat out and used his wings instead…LOL  I also used Hero Arts stamps for my background.  Tiny little bats make a great background.  The cloud dies are from PaperTrey,  The stamp word spooky is also from PaperTrey.  I used a white pen to highlight the wings to give it detail so they pop off the card. Finished the card with a bow…ta da!

Thanks for visiting and I’ll back with more Halloween fun.  See you soon!

Digi stamp for any Occassion


I’m so jazzed to work with these adorable creations from Chi Chi Memories.  This little darling stamp is from the NEW Costume Set 2  stamp.  It comes with a robot girl companion and two other animal costumes and sentiments.


Costume Set 2

Robot 2

I created a flap in front of the robot so I had a place for my sentiment.  My favorite part of using these stamps is that you can use them again for other themes.  For this image I plan to use it again for Valentine’s Day.  I think he’s perfect for that.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat

Autumn is finally here!  You can always tell because Starbucks starts to carry pumpkin flavor goods and drinks…yum! I have loads of Halloween fun planned this whole month so be sure to stop by and see all the fun.  Today I’m going to share a freebie digital stamp from Chi Chi Memories.  

Here’s the link for this free image http://bit.ly/19cm1Cv

Supplies and directions

I used a few things on this card. First the web was created using Spellbinder’s die.  After I die cut my web it was too big for my card so I cut it into pieces to fit my card size.  The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts. The flower is from Petaloo and you get this style in multiples colors, but black seem to fit  this theme.  The spider is from PaperTrey dies and the google eye is from Michaels.  You can find the eye in the section where they carry felt. I used Echo Park paper.

I’ll be back again to share more Halloween fun!. See you soon!

Happy Halloween

It’s finally here… Halloween!  So what are you doing today on this festive day?  Are you out with the kids or passing out candy? I love to pass out candy and stay home.  At our house we make a ton of appetizers, watch scary movies and have a few cocktails.

Today’s card is made with Lifestyle Crafts dies and Hero Arts Stamp.

This die is from the Trick N’ Treats collection called, Spiderweb.

One Die Two Cards

I am a true believer in making full use of what I have.  Like many of us, money is hard to come by these days.  I only buy craft supplies if it’s on sale or with a coupon.  Today I like to share a special treat with you.  I used  Frightful Edges, by Lifestyle Crafts to create the following cards. You can get these dies at 20% off using coupon code, CARDSBYALICE.  I love a good deal!

I used the rough edge die to create this card.  I cut pieces off so that it looks like strips from the mummy’s cloth.

Frightful Edges, by Lifestyle Crafts

I want to show you how diverse this die is and how many different looks you can achieve.

Here’s another card using the same technique of just cutting pieces and turning it into a monster bite. I also used a few other dies from the Tricks N Treats collection that you’ll just love too. It’s always 20% off when you use coupon code, CARDSBYALICE on Lifestyle Crafts.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Wicked good fun!

Having a WICKED good time today making Halloween cards.  I just adore Halloween and everything Halloween has to offer.  I can almost feel it in my bones when Fall rolls around.  Lately, it’s been hard to get excited about Fall with this icky weather we have in California.  What I would give for a little chilly weather and colored leaves?  Oh well…sigh.

I have inky fingers today playing with Ranger Dylusion’s ink sprays.  Have you tried these fun ink sprays?  I love the clean bright colors in this collection and not the glitter.  Makes it so nice to finally spray ink and not worry if the nozzle gets clogged.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love the glitter sprays too, but these are my favorite at the moment.  Like the background of my card?  That’s the look you get when using the ink sprays  along with some white paint  and stamping.

There are 12 different colors to choose from or buy them all.

I have also been playing with my Silhouette Cameo machine and I am LOVING it!  I cut out this cute witch’s hat, do you like it?
