Happy Halloween

Hello crafty friends!  I always look forward to Halloween as I enjoy handing out goodies to kids trick-or-treating.  This year, I just made simple goodie bags.  I bought orange plastic bags, and a bunch of halloween cards which I cut in half to adhere on the bags.  But I made sure to make it extra special with some embossed images and Copic coloring.

In this picture, you can actually see the card front.  I just stamped the fangs and drew the eyebrows.


Here, you can see the back of the card, which I just stamped with the eyes and fangs.


This is the third design, using a ghost halloween card.



Materials used:
image/sentiment:  Inkadinkado
ink:  Tsukineko, Copic, Ranger
tools:  Fastenator
misc.:  Halloween cards, orange plastic goodie bags
adhesive:  Scotch

I like to put out halloween decorations as well, but I enjoy carving pumpkins the most.  Since I was busy with craft shows the past three weeks, I only found time to carve three pumpkins last night.  The designs are from the Pumpkin Carving cartridge by Cricut.







Enjoy tonight, everyone!

Blog Candy No. 10

Happy Sunday everyone!  I intentionally delayed the announcement of Blog Candy No. 10's winner for two reasons.  One - I wanted to give participants more time to link their cards because today's candy is extra special.  Two - I was so tired from yesterday's craft show:

Negatives

Good morning crafty reader!  I mentioned a week or so ago about organizing my leftover die cuts.  I now have them organized in baggies according to color.  But while I was going through them, I found several negatives of some punch out sheets.  I thought I could use them for my cards.

So here's what I came up with:





Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Wassau, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Verve
tools:  edge punch (Fiskars, Martha Stewart, EK Success),  Janome Sew Mini, corner punch, Spellbinders
embellishments:  flowers, sentiment punch outs, Robin's Nest, rhinestones

Congrats

Hello crafty friends!  It's going to be another busy week for me as I prepare for another craft show.  I'm really starting to get a hang about this routine.  The wonderful comments that people give about my work make my heart swell, and receiving them in person makes it a lot more special.  Each time a card leaves my hands, I give it one last look and silently say goodbye. 

After this weekend, I can breathe freely and focus more on my participants for my World Card Making Day celebration.  I haven't forgotten about you, and I have seen all your cards.  It's just that I haven't had the time to leave comments yet.  And I will.  For now, I would like to thank you all for celebrating with me.  You know, this kind of thing is an annual Tinker Planet event.  And then there's National Craft Month in March and National Scrapbooking Day in May.  And let me tell you a little secret.... I'm planning on doing something special for Christmas too. 

Anyway, here's my card for today:



No stamping here.  I just used a design from one of my Cricut Cartridges - sorry I'm too lazy at the moment to figure which one exactly!

If you just happen to pass by, there are some blog candies up for grabs.  Just click the top of my ride side bar for more information.

Saturday

Hello crafty friends! I was busy making some more cards yesterday for today's craft show.  And during the event, I realized that I forgot to take photos of my new cards. Some of them I have sold already. What a bummer!  

Anyway, here's a christmas card I made using one of my favorite pens called POPCORN PENS by Kodomo.  


You basically use this pen to color your image and blast it with a heat gun. The ink just puffs like magic. And the best thing about it is that there is no waiting time.  The more you heat it, the more it puffs out.  I just love it!



Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  The Paper Company, DCWV, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Inkadinkado
ink:  Tsukineko, Copic, Kodomo
tools:  Martha Stewart edge punch
embellishments: rhinestones
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

Speaking of today's craft show, I bought a couple of goodies from fellow vendors.  This ornament pretty much made my day... and it was just 50 cents!


And this crocheted hat made my day even better... for $6!


We have 10 more days into our World Card Making Day celebration.  All you need to do us link your cards you have made this month.

Hello everyone!  I forgot that I have a drawer meant for "misc. die cuts".  I looked through them today and I was amazed at the many die cuts I found.  Some were from swaps, and some were extras that I have cut from before.  Some were already stamped with images, embossed even.  While some were already inked on the edges.  I can't believe I have neglected them for quite some time.  So I laid them on my craft desk and arranged them according to color.  And now my mind was racing on how many cards I can make with them. 

Anyway, here's a quick card I made using my leftover die cuts:



This card is for all the sweet people who greeted me on my special day.  I feel blessed to have you all in my life.  Thank you!!!
We have exactly 12 days 'til we raffle out our grand price for World Card Making Day celebration.  Lots of time.

Christmas in October

Hello crafty friends!  This weekend was super busy.  In fact, I'm just stealing some time here and I'll have to go back to work for a couple more hours. 

Anyway, I have mentioned a few blogs ago that I was going to be in a craft show this weekend.  It was my second time to be in this particular show, and I enjoyed being in both.  With that, I'd like to share with you some photos of my booth yesterday:






Tomorrow, I can start winding down a little bit... and visit my participants in my World Card Making Day celebration.  Better late than never!

We still have 15 days to draw the lucky winner of these fab goodies:
