Good morning! This card was sort of a personal Limited Supply challenge this morning!
We really do live in a 'cottage sized' house and we are having carpets cleaned in 3 of the rooms today. This means that last night EVERYTHING that could be moved had to be moved somewhere else! Not an easy task in a small house! Well, we got it done, but I can't get to many of the items in my craft room, hence the limited supplies! (And the poor photo-where's my OTT light?, no idea!) Looks like I took the picture through a yellow filter! LOL!
I used a Summer Sun card base, stamped in Pumpkin Pie with Linen bg. The Kiwi Kiss layer is stamped with Paisley, in Old Olive then the Pumpkin Pie layer is stamped in Really rust. Gotta love tonal colors! My main image is masked and stamped on watercolor paper that is really cream colored and then watercolored with reinkers. I don't know what the set is and can't get to it to check. Could it be Season of Thanks or Give Thanks? The image was colored previously and happened to be on my stamp table!
Enjoy your day! We'll be putting our house back together this evening! But the carpets will be CLEAN!! Yeah! Thanks for stopping in!

Hi! There's a sale at Magnolia USA, Diana Crick's Magnolia store! Magnolia (Sweden) was late in getting the Halloween images to her. When they came, she uploaded them right away AND PUT THEM ON SALE! 30% off! Generous, huh? Here's the link: http://www.magnoliastamps.us/index.php
This card has two of the images, the Tilda with Spider and the carved pumpkin-you get TWO in the set (this is the taller one)!
My card base is So Saffron, then a layer of Basic black. The Dp layer is Creative Imaginations, Melange collection. The my image on Papertrey White Select. the Jack o' lanterni is on a dimensional. The bats are a Martha Stewart punch and the ribbon is from Martha Stewart, too.
I colored with copics (colors below) and sponged the edges of the main panel with So Saffron. Added a few stickles and some touches of white gel pen.
Here are the colors I used: Face-E00, Eo2, R20. Dress and Apron: Y21, Yog, Y17, Yr16, Yr61, YG91, YG25, YG63, Eo8. Greys: C-3, C-5, C-7. Around image: YG91 (such a versatile color).
I also got my sister's birthday card done, so that will be tomorrow's post. She collects OWLS! Hope you can check it out!
Thanks for checking in today! Cheryl

The Whipper Snapper ghost is stamped on paper trey white with Memento Tuxedo black. He is colored with BG10 and around the outside I used YG91. Both are softened with the blender pen (0). I used my cloud template and Soft Sky around him and added stickles to his body. His nose and cheeks are R00 and R22.
The card base is black, then a layer of Baja Breeze and the dep is Creative Imaginations-Melange. My little ghose is layered on a nestability of black and then Not Quite Navy. Dots are made with a white gel pen.
I added a layer of BB inside which I sponged clouds on. I'll add the sentiment "Have a Spooky Halloween" BOO!!
(The first post was better! Wonder where it went!)
Have a great day!

Now what do I do?! I'm trying not to panic!
This is the card I made yesterday for the terrific Anne Ryan! She leaves the nicest comments on Splitcoast!
I used two of the stamps I got from Diana Crick here: http://www.magnoliastamps.us/index.php
She picked me as one of the design team members for her US store! That's a huge part of the reason that I started this blog. Thank you, Diana!
I colored this wonderful Tilda with lantern with my copics. When I cut her out I cut off the wings that are part of the image. I didn't think the angel worked for this one.
I have mostly Ciao markers so I will list the colors I used. (No neat picture of the colors as I've seen others do! Sorry)
aqua- BG10, BG09, BG72, skin- E00, E02, R20, hair- Y21, E33, browns- E31, E33, E43, E35, E08 and E77I cut the oval with my nestabilities, then sponged soft sky and a little baja breeze BEFORE removing it from the cutting die. Then I stamped the snowflakes (another Magnolia fromDiana) in Baja Breeze.
The bg paper is from Kaiser (Jade Garden) and the dotted paper is from Bo Bunny. I punched snowflakes from SU shimmer paper, bit they needed more so I added stickles and the aqua pearls from Kaiser. Layers are distressed with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink. The card base is Hunter Green but I think it's old because it used to have a dark teal look to it. Then there is a layer of Baja Breeze and a layer of Really rust.
I will try, in the future, to explain more about how I color. I will say, for now, that I start with a lighter color because you can always go darker. I DO use the blender quite a bit.
More another time, I promise!
I'm anxious to see how this posts!
Thanks for reading!
