Halloween card #1

Hello everyone, I've been crafting my fingers off trying to get some cards done for you guys. 
Here is the first card in my Halloween series.

Isn't this little guy from TGF just adorable?! I love him! Sooo cute.

I colored him in with my copic markers, added some wink of stella and that was it. 
Trimmed him out and grabbed a few halloween pattern papers from my stash

And for the inside I used my newest Peachy Keen stamp. 
Their new Halloween release had this great drippy goo sentiment. 
It's slightly blotchy due to my rushing stamping but it totally works for me.
Stay tuned for more cards in the Halloween Series!

Where have I been?

Oy vay! It has been just over a month since my last post.
I can assure you there will be many more to come here shortly. 
Between summer fun, birthday parties, new business, and now back to school prep, it has been a crazy last few weeks!
Hopefully this weekend I can get some much needed crafty things made and blogged as I have missed it so!
See you soon :D

TGF Super Secret Stamp Club #007

Hi everyone! It's here! My very first stamp since joining
The Greeting Farm's Super Secret Stamp Club subscription.
What's that? Well it's a 3-month online subscription where they mail you a "mystery" stamp 1-5 months before it's scheduled to be released as an exclusive first look.
You get these stamps for $8 a piece as opposed to the regular $12! 
For more info on this SSSC click here.
The first one I received is absolutely adorable!
 Isn't he just too stinkin' cute?! I just love him!
This stamp is called "Puppy Love"-SSSC no.007
I don't have many boy stamps so this was a fabulous suprise!
 I'm very happy with how his hair turned out as well. I was a little worried with the side whip, but I think it came out fine. And this little pupperoo just called for a brown spot over his eye for personality.
I coordinated the circles into the inside of the card as well. The circles was inspired by Kristina Werner's July Mail Call theme. You can find her here.
Hope you all enjoy!

Lawn Fawn Into Tuesday!

Phew! Birthday madness is over with! 
The Maleficent party went really well, I had a lot of fun creating stuff for it.
Now back to CARDS!!! 
I got to break out my Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set for this one.
 This fox is by far my favorite critter from this set. 
I nestled him inside the cut out circle, created my own pattern background on the desert storm cardstock using SSS Khaki ink and the little leaf from the set.
 As you can see here my embossing got really messy this time, which I haven't really had an issue with in a long time so I'm not quite sure what happened there. 

I mounted the wood pattern paper directly to the green cardstock and die cut a circle from the top center.
Then I popped the whole panel up on dimensionals.
I don't know if I really colored him accurately like a fox but I do love how he turned out. The blending came out better than I anticipated since using colors that didn't really blend well together.
Well that is the card for today. I just got my new Erin Condren Life Planner in the mail today!
 Eeeek! I'm in love! Going to plan out a lot more time for crafting and blogging!

Happy Hump Day!

Good morning! I wanted to hop on here and get this up before we leave for the day.
The hubs and I are taking the girls to Legoland for our oldests birthday!
They have no idea and have never been so it's pretty exciting.
I created this little card using my new lawn fawn stamps and dies
I bought in my recent SSS haul. 
This set is the "Love You Smore" stamps & dies.
For some reason they wouldn't link up below so I'll link them above.

Isn't that little s'more adorable? 
I kept is very simple, stamped the images on scrap neenah cardstock, colored and cut them out using their coordinating dies. Then adhering them straight onto the cardstock with a little Tombow Mono Multi and added some Wink of Stella to the flames.

I decided to leave the inside of this card blank to leave plenty of room to personalize it.
The sentiment came from the same stamp set.
I just pieced it together how I wanted it and stamped it using Versafine ink.

Just look at that smiling s'more! He's just to cute for words. 
He looks so perfectly toasty too, now I want a s'more.
Oh wait! I have s'more granola bars in the pantry, I know what this momma is having on the ride up to Legoland!
Hope you all enjoyed and have s'more fun today.
