Bloggers Challenge - Warhol cards

This week's challenge is inspired by the signature pop art style of Andy Warhol. Bold panels of color! I went with a simple, blank notecard - it was hard enough getting my layers the same. I finally ended up just using a punch, and trimming around.

Stamps: Fall Flair

Cardstock: Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black

Ink: Basic Black

Other: 1 3/8" square punch

Halloween Coaster Box

Now wouldn't you just love to get this little box filled with candy for Halloween???!!! I would! I made this with 4" coasters that I got from my favorite bar (unused of course). Use a glue stick to cover the coaster, then lay your trimmed paper on it, and rub all over. Punched on the sides and bottom with my Bind-It-All...makes it so easy and fast. Tie together with ribbon.

I covered the insides with cardstock, and the bottom coaster is just plain cardstock on both sides. I stitched the ribbon through around the bottom, like sewing it onto the box. That went a lot faster than tying ribbon through each hole, like I did for the sides

Papers: Basic Grey (Stampin' Up), Halloween print from a Fall Glitter Stack

Other: Bind-it-All, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black grosgrain ribbon (SU

Halloween Coaster Scrapbook

Oh my God! My friend Jamie scored a whole pack of these hexagon shaped coasters from a bar and we immediately put them to use! I made this little mini scrapbook out of them. I traced the coasters onto Whisper White cardstock, and cut out, for the inside pages. Bound it using my trusty Bind-It-All. I love that thing!

Halloween Treats!

This is a triangle box, to hold some Halloween TREATS! I love making little treaty things for Halloween!

I stamped little girlie here on Glossy White cardstock, then sponged Tangerine and Kiwi around her, and on her dress. Colored in her body/face and hair with markers.

Ink: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss

Vintage Halloween

I just got this set from Artistic Outpost, and love it! I'm trying out other stamps - trying to broaden my horizons a little, and learn a few new things. I used an old Stampin' Up spectrum pad for this base. Brayered it on Glossy white cardstock. Stamped the image over that in Basic Black.

Bloggers Challenge - Color Combo

This week's challenge was to use certain colors (or close to it) - Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, and Riding Hood Red. I was trying to use just black and white cardstock too, so I sponged the edges. I'm not really happy with it, but it's a learning experience...hence, a challenge! Sorry for the blurry picture, but you get the idea.

Stamps: Upsy Daisy

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White

Ink: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red
