Here is my spooky All Hallow's Eve project:

The skull and crossed bones are from a Martha Stewart punch.  I distressed them and added black glitter paper behind the skull for just a touch of sparkle.

All the bottles are stamped and embossed.  I varied the labels with stamped/embossed and paper labels cut from the same paper as the background.

I like the metal mesh at the bottom for a touch of masculinity.  I am giving this card as a birthday card tonight.

Happy Halloween Bow card

I have just a few more Halloween cards, this is a Pinterest inspired card.  The card on Pinterest is made from Close to My Heart products including the Artiste Cricut Cart.  I used the Tim Holtz tattered bows die from Sizzix.  I used some Halloween paper I received in a Secret Sister package.  I can think of doing this in a dozen different themes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Animal Spirit Tree of Life card

I recently colored another Animal Spirit image for a friend of mine suffering from liver cancer.  I looked up the ribbon color and it is emerald green.  I thought this card was perfect!  I added the emerald green ribbon at the bottom.  Positive thoughts for my friend and his journey.  Thank you.

Whistlin Dixie Bold and Bright Teen Layout

Good morning Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia with you today still chugging along on my family vacation album. Today I have a layout with the vibrant Whistlin Dixie collection which are now my favorite papers for teenage layouts.

My favorite way to make the most of a beautiful sheet of paper is to fussy cut the pretty parts.  Which is exactly what I did here with this piece of Whistlin Dixie 103 paper.  The flourish design is so bright and beautiful just like my niece!  I also cut out strips from Whistlin Dixie 100 paper.  I love papers that you can cut up for embellishments.  I had the most fun cutting various flowers and layering them for this bold and bright teen layout.  Of course, I inked all the edges and crumpled them a bit for a distressed look.  My new favorite chalking ink is Coal Miner, it looks great with every thing! I finished off the flowers with some bling.

I had so much fun making the flowers I made a card with the scraps.  It doesn't look like a card from scraps at all!  I used Kiwi Lane templates to make the twist layer.  It turned out to be such a bold and bright card but balanced with the blacks and greys from 49 Shades of Grey.

Spooky Halloween Engagement Party Card

I went to a great Halloween Engagement party this weekend.  I made this spooky cards for the lucky couple!  I created the "wall" scene but wanted to still grunge it up a bit so I sprayed Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold over the paper layers masking the "label" area.  I also liked the frayed satin ribbon so I left it distressed.

Water Goddess Card

This is another digital witch image I won from Lunagirls, I believe.  I thought she was just beautiful but not as traditionally witchy as the other cards I made.  I added a lot of elegant embellishments and beautiful papers to accentuate the image.  I love how it turned out.
