Day 245 at 365 cards was to make an "inchie". I have made these before but not for this site.

Day 241 at 365 cards was to "Put a list on your card instead of a sentiment." I immediately thought of a recipe with a list of ingredients. I found this well-loved, rather soiled recipe card in my file box. After copying it, I attached it to the card with cut out stamped items.

Macabre Monday at Haunted Design House's challenge this week is to use green, purple, black, and or tan with something round and shiny on your card. I used stamps, punches and Copic Markers on my card today. I added 2 shiny silver brads for Frankie's neck bolts.
Week 72 at Penny Black Saturday was to make something spooktacular using at least 1 Penny Black stamp. I used the Trick or Treat set which I love. I colored the image of Frankie with Copic Markers and sponged the edges of the papers with CTMH cocoa. I used twine from my stash, a square punch from I don't know where, and made the computer generated sentiment. I gave it to my friend Bud. He laughed at the Frankenstein saying.

Day 234 at 365 cards was Tuesday Trio. We had to use a tag, a pearl, and a ribbon on our card. I used CTMH stamps colored with Copic Markers, a Stamping up punch, 2 black pearls for "eyes" on the tag mummy (which I put torn paper on and distressed it to make it look like dirty bandages,) and a Happy Halloween ribbon from the Target $ bin. At first I only put one pearl on as an accent piece but when I was walking to my computer room to scan it, I had a "flash" about using another pearl and making eyes. I wish those flashes would come more often. LOL Have a great day everyone!

Day 233 at 365 cards was to find a piece of fabric in your home that you love and using it for inspiration for your card. I bought 3 of these Halloween dish towels because I liked the design so much. For my card I used CTMH purple paper, brown textured paper...unknown, CTMH stamps, Copic Markers, and a ghost punch possible from Fiskars. I think I want to do some punched out leaves in fall colors to help break up the brown or some pumpkins on the lawn befor I give this card away. This was a neat challenge.

Day 229 was a color scheme on 365 cards. I used CTMH tulip, cocoa, olive, bamboo, and buttercup cardstock. I used a punch for the stars, balloon, cupcakes, squares, stars, hat, present, and candle. (Unsure of what company they are from.) The sentiment is from CTMH.
Day 227 at 365 cards was "In Motion". We had to depict motion in our card. Mine is the butterfly. I used Copic markers to color the digi stamp (so sorry, I don't know where it came from), DCWV "Nana's Kids" designer paper, and CTMH cardstock for the backgrounds.

Day 223 at 365 cards was to create a shadow. I used a transparency to create the shadow on the bottom. Unfortunately, you can see the adhesive on the corners. Any ideas on what to use that would not show through? I love this card and would like to make more. This was a good challenge.

Day 221 at 365 cards was "Imagine This: Denim" I used CTMH stamps from the Blue Jeans set and CTMH outdoor denim and cranberry ink. I used my Cuttlebug bubbles folder and I found a silver star applique to stick on (because back in my day we decorated our jeans.) I used 2 metal dots for the pockets and I put a gift card in the pocket.

Day 220 at 365 cards was "In Stitches." We had to have cross stitching on our card. I think Pam and I must be on the same wavelength or something. I made a bunch of cross stitched ornaments to put on cards with pop dots. They can then be taken off the cardstock and hung on the tree. This will be for my neighbor as we both love Cardinals and we see which one of us can put the best food in the feeders to attract them. It's all in fun. I only had one Cardinal kit so I'm really sacrificing this for her. LOL The cross stitch was a kit that you stitched on plastic canvas. The papers are from CTMH and I'm not sure about the punch.
These candy bar holders are the brain-child of Angie at http://www.mychicnscratch.com
I used CTMH paper and ink. Mine are slightly different than Angie's as I used googly eyes for the mummy, a different punch for the candy bar, and slightly different size circles for the Frankenstein eyes. I haven't put a ribbon on Frankie yet but you can see the one on the mummy. I think these are adorable. You slide the candy bar in through the punched area so it hangs out a little, it's like a match book.

Week 69 at Penny Black is Autumn Breezes using a Penny Black stamp and autumn colors. I used a punch I had (no manufacturer name on it) to make the leaves and the pumpkins. I used DCWV cardstack "Green" for the background, PB hedgehog (love them), Copic markers for the pumpkins and the hedgehog, CTMH cardstock for the leaves, and a Sakura gel pen for the pumpkins. The ribbon is something I had hanging around. I am going to give this to a friend who takes very good care of his lawn (almost to the point of being crazy). I put on the inside "Happy Fall! Time to rake the leaves."
Day 217 at 365 cards was Stampin' Saturday. We had to stamp a background that was the same color as our cardstock. I used CTMH twilight cs with CTMH twilight ink for the background. The stamps are from Technique Tuesday, the ribbon is Offray, the bird paper is from DCWV "Green" cardstack. I am lovin' that cardstack :-) Now I am all caught up until tomorrow.
Day 216 at 365 cards was Ad Inspired and had a picture of 3 tote bags. This is my take on one of them. I used black cs that was in my scraps, DCWV "Green" stack for the background with the birds, CTMH stamps for the sentiment and flowers, CTMH twilight ink, and the Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder to emboss the black cs.
Day 215 at 365 cards is all about the 4 elements, water, fire, earth, and air. I found a model of the elements on the internet, printed, cut and pieced it onto the card. I used DCWV cardstack "Green Stack" for the words and I used DCWV "Fairy Tales" for the background cardstock.
