Dracula Party

As we’re coming up to Halloween our lovely leader, Judith, has chosen the theme of Celebrate Halloween for this week’s challenge at Fab’n Funky.

Our fabulous sponsor is Lemon Shortbread with a prize of 3 images for the lucky winner.

Lemon Shortbread gave the Design Team images to play with and I used Dracula Party, available here.

dracula-partyI thought this would be a good choice for my oldest grandson, who will be 13 on Halloween.  I cut an oval from the base card and placed a greyish blue paper behind it.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and fussy cut around it. The “castle wall” is bright blue paper, distressed with brown and green inks, and the bricks are marked out with a grey Promarker.  The buildings are from clip art – fussy cut and distressed with grey ink – and the moon is cut with a circle die.  The ivy is die cut with a Signature Die from Joanna Sheen and distressed with green and brown DI.  Distressing certainly took over this time as the  edges of the moon are distressed with a brighter yellow ink.  The ribbon is from my stash, the bats are confetti and the sentiment is computer generated using Chiller font.

Winnie Winter Fox

I’ve changed from Halloween to a Christmas card today.  I do love Winnie from Polkadoodles and when they brought out Winnie in Winterland I just had to get some of the images.  I’ve used Winnie Winter Fox for my card – coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics, added dots of Tulip Slick for the holly berries and Stickles Frosted Lace for the snow.  The edge of the image was cut with fancy scissors.  The papers are from the recent Polkadoodles download – Festive Christmas – and my stash, and the sentiment is from DSB.  I die cut 2 trees from Marianne Designs and layered the glittered white tree over the black one.  The snowflake is from Joy Crafts – also glittered with Stickles Frosted Lace.  I finished off with 5 small gems from my stash.

Spooky Spells

Yes – it’s another Halloween card…!!!  This one is for our baby granddaughter who will have  turned one a few days before Halloween – but I didn’t want her to think I’d left her out of the spooky cards.

The new challenge starting today at My Time to Craft today is Autumnal Colours or Halloween – no prizes for guessing which one I’ve gone for…especially if you read my last post…

I used an image from Di’s Digi Designs – Too Cute to Spook – and coloured it with Promarkers and Copics.  The papers are from my stash, I distressed the moon and added confetti bats and the big bat is from clip art.  The sentiment is computer generated using Chiller font and I dotted green and lilac Liquid Pearls on the “spell”.

Witchy Bella Boo – on blue

I love making Halloween cards – which is just as well as we have 5 grandchildren that I want to make cards for.   I used an image from Digital Delights – Witchy Bella Boo – and coloured her with Promarkers and Copics, then fussy cut around the image and placed her on a paper from my stash.  The ribbon and 5 star gems are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated using Chiller font.  I doodled around the edge of the card and the oval with the sentiment.  The star die cuts and the black pearls on the o’s are also from my stash.

Rose Fairy

The new challenge starting today at Fab’n Funky has been chosen by Jan.  There are 2 themes and you can use one or the other – or combine them both.  The themes are Lots of Sparkle or Shades of Grey and One Other Colour.  Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Aurora Wings with a prize of a $10 voucher for the lucky winner.


Aurora Wings gave the Design Team their choice of images to play with and I chose Rose Fairy, available here.


I coloured this gorgeous image with Promarkers and Copics and added Sparkles Star Dust to some of the roses.  I used a paper with several shades of grey and added a sentiment from a mag freebie – embossed with sparkly embossing powder.  The ribbon and gems are from my stash .
