Rubbernecker Design Team Sunday- Cozy Cabin

I am loving this cozy little cabin from Rubbernecker stamps, KKCS Moose #3013. There are two different cabins, four different trees, and a bunch of critters to add to your woodsy scene. I stamped the cabin first, then used a masking technique to add my […]

Rubbernecker Thursday- Flying Monkeys

Rubbernecker Thursday- Flying Monkeys

Hello, and welcome to another Rubbernecker Thursday! I just realized it was October. OCTOBER! This year has really just flown by very quickly! For today’s card I decided to embrace the lovely month of October with a Halloween themed card. I have always loved Halloween, as a kid it was so much fun to plan a costume (we always made ours, with little to no purchased items). Trick-or-treating with friends in the Victorian era neighborhood of my home town, on those crisp (cold) autumn nights.  Great memories, so much fun! Today’s card was really quick and easy to make. This card could easily be adapted for a Christmas card as well, just by changing up the colors and swapping the witch for Santa and his sleigh!

I made my background using Pan Pastels. I punched a circle in a piece of scrap paper and used the circle piece mask off my “moon”. I started with a deep blue color, then added the dark purple over the top, love the depth that the two colors added! I removed the circle mask, then used the negative space from the circle punch to mask off the rest of the “sky” and add color to my moon. I did spray this with a workable sealer, so my pastels would stay where I put them, also, so I didn’t continue to add purple fingerprints to everything! πŸ™‚ I used Black Versa Fine ink and my Misti tool to add the Rubbernecker Witch #663-02 and Watercolor Forest #972 to my card front. The Misti tool is so great when you know you will need to add layers of ink to the same spot, love it! I added the sentiment Flying Monkeys #475-02 after I had sprinkled the whole card front with FSJ Sparkle Silk for some extra texture. After I added the sentiment I decided it needed just a little something… I ended up deciding on these purple sequins, I think they add the perfect finish to this fun Halloween card.

Hope that you enjoyed today’s card, thanks so much for stopping by! There is lots more inspiration on the Rubbernecker Inspiration Blog, I hope you will pop over and see what all the other design team members have created for you! πŸ™‚ And don’t forget you can join in the fun with the new Challenge posted every other Tuesday! It’s a great chance to win some wonderful Rubbernecker products!!

Happy Fall…Almost!

Happy Fall…Almost!

DSC_4326_01Well it is almost time to say good-bye to summer and hello to fall! I guess I will be happy to see some cooler weather, but it’s always so sad (to me anyway!) to see summer come to a close. Thankfully I live in an area that has a fairly temperate climate, so the mornings and evenings will be chilly, but the days will remain pleasant.

This little fox and sentiment are from, Fall In The Forest, in the A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog. The leaves are from Hey Foxy, also from A Muse.

Papers: A Muse Studio Sugar, Eucalyptus, Pumpkin, and French Roast wood grain cardstock

Toffee twine.

Leaves colored with Peerless Watercolor Sheets, and Gold Splash Spray

Fox colored with Copic markers.

Enjoy your last days of summer! Thanks for visiting today! πŸ™‚
