CTMH Raven Halloween

Good Morning Crafters, Lyne here from Lynn's Everyday Ideas.  
This week I made a clean and simple Halloween card.  
I used the bird from the Believe in Yourself set, heat embossed him in black and fussy cut.
 I used the front and back of one of the designer papers from the collection Scaredy Cat as my card bases. I like using both the front and back since they are designed to match each other.
{View the Scaredy Cat Collection HERE}
Lastly I dry embossed some matching purple paper with a diagonal stripe.  I felt the dry embossing added interest, but didn't overwhelm the patterns.
     I used this bird for Halloween since he looked a little creepy to me, but I could definitely see him also being used for more steampunk cards or even a mixed media canvas. 
 What would you use him for?
     Until next time...Keep Scrapping!

Crazy Camper

About Me:

Deirdre Smith designer and owner of Glittered Roses "creating something handmade" . I have been crafting for what seems like a life time, but about 18 years is about right. I have tried everything from sewing to painting and settling with anything involving paper. I believe in order to be a crafter you have to be willing to try and make things in two's ; one for keep and one for a gift. I am currently residing in Las Vegas with my two beautiful children and enjoy cooking and crafting and occasionally cleaning the house. Motherhood has taught me that preserving memories is a must, so I try to capture most of my experiences with my family through photos and projects. I currently do special order projects, teach Copic along with other craft classes and design for Sherri Baldy's My Besties 3D Images.

Welcome, welcome Deirdre here to start your week with a card showcasing Crazy Camper Occasions  (C1578) a stamp set that is not only useful for camping trips, but versatile enough to use for everyday cards and even layouts   

I colored this image using my Copic Markers (R05; R08, R27; BG32; BG34; BG49; Y19; YG25; T1; T2; T4; T6) I know it seems like so many markers for such a small image...I got nothin....lol
The base of the card is made with designer papers Seaside (X7192B); Yueltide Carol (X7187B)
and last I used some road and sky Washi Tape (source unknown)

I really adore the sentiments that came with this set because they are so very versatile and appropriate for many occasions and projects.
Head on over to I Heart Stamping Heather's shop where you can purchase items I used to make this card.

Until next week continue "creating something handmade" it's so good for the soul

On to the project I created for today..

{image credit}

hat I did was alter a composition book to hold my ideas for my DT Projects and due dates.
Paper is from Heidi Swapp,  Flower & Stick Pins are Pinque Peacock product created by Ms. Jessica..
White Ribbon is CTMH Ribbon
This was a super fun and easy project to create, we always have a ton of Composition books in our house as the school lists always ask for more than what my girls actually use. I will have to share with you later how I alter the inside and back page {i'm still working on ideas} ..

This card was created using the Random Collection by Crate paper, I paired it with this FABULOUS yellow Elegant Floral Pleated  Petal you can find it in the Pinque Peacock Shop HERE.
The Arrows was an extra piece I had left over from when I tried out my art booking cartridge, I used some Tim Holtz Distress paint, matted it on black card stock and then layered the card. I intentionally left the bottom 1/4 (or less) of the card without design I just like how the sentiment looked that way. I cut the sentiment with the cricut explore.
