Time for Halloween yet?

17 Aug
It’s hard to even think about Halloween time. Before you know it we will be making Christmas cards etc too.  In this last batch of New Release dies, there were a couple of dies for Halloween and I thought I’d pair them with some I already had and I came up with this fun card.
I embossed my card background with Leaves Embossing Plate.
The dies I am using from the new releases are CREEPY GATE and PUMPKIN SWAG.
The black cat and tree are a set called SCARE ME and the moon is made from the center of the SUNFLOWER die.
The cloud is a stamp that I stamped and cut out.
I think that the card turned out so cut and not too spooky! What do you think?
 I am having a lot of fun with the new release of dies.
I hope to have time to play with the flowers this next week.

Pop Up Halloween Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs

14 Oct
Not wanting to sound like a broken record, I will not tell you how excited I am about my post today!
Maybe this has been done before and if so, that’s ok…but this card design I did not do any GOOGLE searches to help me at all!  It is 100% me and my crazy mind.
It is my pop out Pumpkin Card/Decoration.
I have seen a lot of people doing he 3-d pumpkins from normal circles and then using them as decorations. I did not just want to do what everyone else is doing.
What I did here was to 1st, not use circles but a Scalloped Oval.
I really wanted it to look like a honeycomb pumpkin and asked my 15yo son how he thought I could do it.  He said I couldn’t!  But I proved him wrong!!
With a little creative sewing and hot glue, I did it.
Another secret?  My bats!  All I did was to use the Hearts die, fold  a heart in half and then cut the top off the heart.  When you open the paper up, you have yourself a bat.
I had so much fun making this and think I might get a frame and just turn it into a Halloween decor item!

A spooky peek inside my IMAGINATION!

I could not ask for a more appropriate helper with the project I am sharing today.

This is LUNA, the crafty cat.

We rescued her and have had her about a month.

 She is making my husband terribly sick, but I think I might have finally found a good home for her!

She made herself at home with my Canvas Corp goodies!

I have been a fan of Canvas Corp for a while now.  I first fell in love with all the KRAFT papers they have.

I am not hugely into Halloween. But I was given the opportunity to work with this template from Mementoes in Time.

The template I have used is called SHOP CARD.

I had all this fun paper from Canvas Corp and combined with the template, I just thought of making a “Little Shop of Horrors.”

All of my critters are cute and spooky, this is about as scary as I get.

These images are the inside of the card. AGH!!  Canvas Corp has THE BEST POLKA DOT PAPERS….EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes when I get an idea, I just run with it.  This card is one of those times.  I had so much fun making it.

My little ones just keep opening the doors over and over again.

It is a small piece of magic for them to look at.

I will definitely be using the SHOP CARD template again, so be watching for some more fun things with that.

Head on over to Mementoes In Time and look at their fun templates and other things.

Also you can see ALL of Canvas Corps products by downloading their catalog here.

So what do you think of my LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS?

Let Canvas Corp and Mementoes In Time know!
