A Bit Out of the Box


I rarely make home made crafts.  Not my forte  :)  But, I saw some Halloween bottles on eBay and thought I could do that!  So, here's what I came up with.   Got some bottles at the thrift store, printed labels found by googling Halloween bottle  labels images.  Threw in some fake spiders, eye balls and skeleton from Michael's.  I adhered the labels with Modge Podge and covered the entire bottles to give them some texture and age them a bit.  Died some cheese cloth with tea.

 My sweet cat had to inspect them  :)  Hope you like this idea!  Super quick and simple!!!

Free Digis Friday- Christmas

Hello crafty friends!  I am very excited about this week's free digis.  That's right, more than one!  I found the images at DZ Doodles.  You can get them here for a limited time only.  So hurry and grab them.  While you're there, take a minute to thank them by leaving them a comment.  It's the polite thing to do  :)

Now, I saw a similar card somewhere so my idea for this card is not original but I can't find the card that inspired mine.  I did a few searches on Splitcoaststampers but to no avail  :(  The other thing you'll notice is that the antlers aren't the same colour!!! Oh my heck!  I need to pay more attention when I colour!  Anyhoo, used Prismacolor Pencils again along with my Gamsol.  Added a bit of glitter on his red nose and voilà!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Saturday tomorrow!

Something a Little Different

I don't really have a style when it comes to my cards.  In fact, I don't really have a style for the clothes I wear either.  Sometimes it's jeans, sometimes, it's a skirt.  Plain and neutral one day, fun colours the next.  So, I feel the same way about the cards I make.  I would say though that I dress modestly and it is always simple.  No big jewelry or loud accents.  No layer after layer.  Same with my cards.  I prefer to go clean & simple.  Mostly because I am always short on time  :)  Anyhoo, this card was inspired by Birgit's card.  Hope you like it and have a happy Sunday!

Supplies: Stamp by SU! Nature Walk (121997)
Papers: Textured White and page from a French book.
Ink: Black.
Accessories: Pop Dots, Sponge, Perfect Plum Ink Pad, Markers, Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (109027) , Thread and Button - my stash.




Je n'ai pas vraiment de style avec mes cartes.  En fait, je n'ai pas vraiment de style avec les vêtements que je porte non plus.  Parfois je porte des jeans, d'autres fois, je porte une jupe. Simple et neutre une journée, couleurs vives une autre.  Alors, c'est un peu pareil pour mes cartes.  Je dois dire que je porte mes vêtements toujours de façon modeste et bien simple. Pas de gros bijoux ou d'accents.  La même chose avec mes cartes.  Je préfère simple & propre. La plus part du temps parce que je n'en ai pas beaucoup de temps  :)  En tout cas, cette carte est inspirée par Birgit.  J'espère que vous l'aimez et passez un beau dimanche!


Matériaux: Etampes par SU! Nature Walk (121997)

This card is for this week's Colour Challenge at SCS.  This is so out of the box for me.  I actually drew these birds.  My card is inspired by Godelieve and the drawing lessons are by Delphine Doreau.  I used a water brush with my markers so the edges of my birds are a little fuzzy but I kinda like it that way.  I had so much fun drawing these, I will do some more in the future.  Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies: Sentiment done in Word.
Papers: Naturals Ivory, Island Indigo.
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Black and Island Indigo

Bugs & Kisses

So sad to see this stamp set go at the end of the month.  Making this card reminded me of the old days (back when we didn't have a computer) and we had to draw our own bugs for school projects.  We couldn't print them off the internet.  So, I decided to use staples and school paper.  Hoping this will cheer a little boy who is in the hospital right now.  Have a happy Sunday!

Supplies: Stamp set by SU! Bugs & Kisses (116580).  Papers: Crumb Cake, DSP In Color (hostess level 1) and Paper Studio.  Ink: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Chocolate Chip.  Accessories: Staples.


Bien dommage de voir cet ensemble d'étampes être discontinué à la fin du mois.  J'ai pensé à mon enfance pendant que j'ai fait cette carte.  Dans le temps, on n'avait pas d'ordinateur et il fallait dessiner les insectes.  On ne pouvait pas les imprimer avec l'aide de l'internet.  Donc, j'ai decidé de mettre des agrafes et du papier d'école.  Cette carte va aller à un petit garçon qui est a l'hôpital et qui j'espère va lui amener un petit peu de joie!  Passez un beau dimanche!

Matériaux: Etampe par SU! Bugs & Kisses (116580).  Papiers: Brune dune, Bloc de papier de la série Design – In Colors (palier 1) et Paper Studio.   Encre: narcisse délice, vert olive et pépite de chocolat. Accessoires: Agrafes.
