Happy Halloween!!!

I have a super cute card (if I do say so myself) that I made for Halloween using MFT's Spooky Scene Die-namics.  I am submitting this card in The Cutting Edge Challenge #13. Here's the inspiration:

And here's my card:

This card actually has NO stamping on the front! Here is a close up shot:

And here is the inside:

This banner was originally going to go on the front but I stamped it a little off center and I wanted perfection to go along with those gorgeous die cuts, so I went with the "boo" instead!

Thanks for checking out my blog!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL THE GHOULS OUT THERE!

Ingredients: MFT Spooky Scene, Spider Web Cover-up, Trick or Sweet; Spellbinders Classic Circle

Holiday Wishes card for PTI Blog Hop

Here is the recipe I used for this card:

I love this combo - modern, fresh and great for a masculine card!!!

Here is my card:

I used the snowflake impression plate for the scarlet jewel background and then sprayed it with SC Calico Shine to add sparkle.  Here's a detail shot - the impression is very faint (I need to work on my "sandwich"):

Here is the card inside (i used the leftover from the frame die cut to stamp my sentiment on):

Joy & Peace cards for PTI Blog Hop

It's time for the October Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month PTI provided holiday color recipes for our creations.  I ended up making 3 cards for the hop, 2 here in this post since they use the same recipe.

Here's the color recipe I used:

I love these colors! My original idea/sketch didn't work out but after some brainstorming I came up with a sketch I loved - so I made 2 cards!!!

Here they are:

The background is clear embossed.  Here are some detail shots:

I didn't have any pink enamel dots so I colored the white pearly ones I had to create raspberry fizz ones.

And here's what I did on the inside (same for both so I only took one pic):

For my card "O" is for October when the leaves turn all those pretty colors and for orange, the color of pumpkins!

The larger tag is dry embossing and then I swiped my ink pad over the raised areas to highlight the texture.

Here is a detail shot of the smaller tag - which I cut out of colored cork!

This is what I stamped on the inside:
