DeNami Halloween Blog Hop!

Wow! Another awesome Blog Hop opportunity brought to you by DeNami Designs! :) If you are hopping on over here from Jennifer Harris' blog, you are on the right track!! If not, please hop on over to the DeNami blog to start from the top! YAY for Blog Hops!

 I wanted to use my chickies this time for the Halloween theme. Didn't even know where I was to start so I just got out some Halloween paper and started on it! I used the Pumpkin Pie cardstock from Stampin Up for the back, rolled it through my Cuttlebug with the argyle type embossing folder. Aged it with some Chocolate Chip SU ink. Then I ran the nestabilities rectangle die for the frame with some black cardstock, cut out the middle and attached it to the card with some green patterned paper scraps. Next, I used the Martha Stewart spiderweb punch for the corner then drew a spider to the bottom of the frame. 


Next, stamped some of the DeNami mini's pumpkins on watercolor paper. Colored them, cut them and popped up the one. I then used my 2 favorite Chickie stamp's, the Pirate and the Superhero and stamped them on watercolor paper as well. I wanted there to be a girl chickie somewhere so I made one of the pirates a "chick". :) Then I used a Stampin Up postage punch to use to pop them up on the side of the card. Finishing touches included stickles on anything shiny on the chickies then liquid pearls along the frame to add to it. There ya have it! Thanks for showing some love on my comment box and please come back later to check out future posts!

Next up on the hop is:

Couple Random Cards

Here are a couple recent cards. The sentiments used are from Stampin Up. The rest is mentioned on the photo itself. With the Some Odd Girl card I used the deconstructed sketch #46 from the deconstructing jen blog. Great place to get inspiration let me tell ya! :)

BTW...the background image for the dragon card was actually a cutout of the upcoming plays from the local theater of arts college. I just loved the colors and needed to use it for something! :)

Lunch Break Speed Card!

Here is a card I made using materials that were headed to the trash can (ripped manilla folders, used up cardstock folders not needed anymore); then I had some brads hanging around the office, permanent marker to color and highlighters and colored pencils for the rest. I had printed a sheet of one of my favorites, Giggle Fairy from Some Odd Girl. I had a lot of fun spending my lunch making a card. Sometimes I get the crafty feeling and need that output! LOL!

I used the sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch blog, sketch #71. ( by Lori Boyd as my layout design and there ya have it! :)
