Happy Halloween all!  This is the card I sent out this year.  The basket is CC Rubber Stamps, pumpkins are by K*I Memories, and the saying by Hero Arts.   I sent these out on Friday and forgot to take a picture, thanks Shirley for scanning yours and sending it to me!  Enjoy the day!

Cattail Pond

This is my favorite scenery digital from Doodle Pantry, I colored it with a mix of KOH-I-NOOR pencils for the small areas and Copics. The window and curtains are a Spellbinders from Our Daily Bread that I could not pass up at the Collinsville Convention this past summer, my Christmas card is planned around it but of course I could not wait until then to use this die cut!

I am entering it in the monthly Doodle Pantry Challenge DPDC 28, lots of amazing designs.

A Boy and His Frog

This Digital Image is from The Digi Garden and I placed him  on a Zig Zag Accordian card, pattern from Technique Junkie's Fancy Folds CD. Pumpkin is k&i Memories. How do you like his overalls?  I used a piece of burlap with Copic Blender fluid to get the burlapy look, I need to experiment with it more, not exactly what I wanted but fun. Denim material is great for the blue jean look.  I have more Halloween cards to show later.  I enter this cutie in:

Triple Time Stamp Technique - Girl's Day

Last but not least!! This is Shirley's card.  This is triple time stamp.  You stamp all the white layers (except the saying) at one time and then layer it.  Isn't it gorgeous!

Two Step Stamping - Girl's Day

This is Pat's card, or Patti J. as you may know her.  This is a great technique - Pat does it have a name?  I made this name up.  You stamp with the wrong side of a clear stamp - yes the wrong side, for a solid image.  Then you turn the clear stamp over to the right side and stamp in black and it just pops!!  What a dynamic card! Quick and easy too. Okay now we have the real technique name: Two Step Stamping.  I just love learning new techniques, you can do so much with them.
