Lets swing from the Chandelier. Its Halloween.

Hi Everyone. Happy Halloween Day. Last card for halloween this year. I've just packed all my stuff away after making this, so its goodbye halloween goodies for another year. I used the Split Negative Technique (I think its called). Anyone would think that I didnt have guests coming from England in a few days. I should be cleaning the house, weeding the gardens, cooking, organising activities.... you know, all that stuff you do when you have visitors that you havnt seen in 5 years!!! Instead I've been in my craft room for about 2 hours this morning. Oops, gotta go. Gotta do the school fete and I'm now running really late. Queen of unorganised, me. See you all soon.

Haunted House

Well, I'm back, but its just for a quickie. I suddenly remembered today that I hadnt updated for about 2 weeks!!!! So I ran off to my craft room, which I also havnt been in for about 2 weeks, and made a quick card. I thought I'd just fit in another halloween card before its over. Gee, its nearly here, and I havnt even really thought about it. The spooky house in the background is by Alota Rubber Stamps (which I just love).  Hope you all have a good one.

Halloween Night

I've been on the missling list for a few days so I thought I'd try out my very first Halloween card. I love halloween, not that I celebrate it or anything like that, its not big here in Oz. I just love all the halloween goodies that you can buy in the craft stores. Especially the Magnolia stamps. Have you seen the new ones? Love them. Ok, I had loads of trouble with this one. Nothing seemed to go as planned. Expecially the tree in the background. I stamped it with momento ink and for some reason it just wouldnt come out bold enough. Oh well, back to the drawing board on that one. I'm sure I'll find time to post a couple more before the end of the month, but If I dont, ave a spooky halloween.

Home Sweet Home

I couldnt take just 1 photo of this card, because its a dimensional card and I thought you might want to see the layers. I made it for the buttons challenge over at Magnolia Down Under. The card uses 1 piece of A4 card, then you just embellish as you want. I used Tilda with key and I hand cut the window and the planter box. The white trim on the roof lining is German Scrap and of course I coloured Tilda and the bird with my copics. See you next time.

Going Shopping

I think you need to put your shades on to view this ones Ladies!!! I have to say I'm really terrible at matching colours. What I think looks ok, other people think is terrible. Maybe I'm colour blind and dont know it. Ha ha. When I used to go to cardmaking classes at our local store, the teacher would tell us all to pick papers that we thought would look nice on the project we were doing. I'd pick, she'd say "mmmmmmmmmmmm", then I'd hear her go around the rest of the group saying "beautiful, lovely, perfect".....  Seriously though, picking beautiful colours that go together is just so hard for me. I think this card falls into the mmmmmmmmmmmm category. Still, i had fun making it. Thats what matters, hey? It also looks like its on a slant but its actually my photograpic skills. Nil, I'm afraid. Not much I can tell you about this one. I made the tree with the stampin up punch, cut once in green and once in red, then punched with a circle punch to look like apples. Coloured tilda with copics. Hand cut the house and used the Martha Stewart fence punch. Thats it for now. Have a great day.
