LCC Christmas

This card is done without stamps
the inner piece with the trees is done with a folder
The trees were dusted in chalk
The next layer is a die cut raised with foam dots
Of course the little deer are a die cut

LCC Fall Colors

Okay I know it is Nov 5 so I had better get Halloween out of the picture
The scene of this  card is made with an embossing folder
Colored with distress inks on a dabber and copic markers
The Halloween figures hiding are from a mini set of Marks Finest Papers

Come visit and see what the rest of the DT came up with

LCC Spooky

I had a little struggle with the theme Spooky
I tried Halloween but they all seemed too cutsy
So back to the drawing board
Still Halloween but much darker a theme
I stamped and colored with copic
Then used webbing  over the finished piece
Asked around the  house and it seems to be spooky
What do you think
Check out the other DT work

Child Play LCC

This little darling is blowing her bubbles 
A perfect way to play when you are alone
So I chose to make this card for the Child Play Ch
At   LCC
I did the background in chalk
Die cut the circles which are very mush like bubbles
Added the clouds
The image is colored with copic markers and
hand cut She is foam mounted

LCC 129 Child Play

I think this qualifies for Child Play
I used several stamps from a Huckleberry Finn Stamp set
I aged and torn edged the background
Colored the images with copic markers
Added dies from a fishing die set
Come set what the other DT members made

A few things I don't often do
I seldom work from a kit
I seldom do Halloween
I seldom do

This time I did all three

I have a sweet friend who keeps supplying me with occasional  kits
My motto is "It is not mine until I use it "
So as soon as it is on my desk I must attack
I have too admit I find kits restricting and I take many liberties
This kit could be a real clock
I decided against that but finished it without the fittings
I will take the face off fill it with candy for a very sweet little neighbor

Huge Flowers

I pulled out this stamp set 
Huge Flowers by MFP
at request of a friend who needed a stamp off
While it was out I decided it might be a good idea to use it myself as well
I stamped off both sizes  colored with copic markers
popped the smaller one over the huge one
The sentiment is also in the set
The southern belle die seemed  the perfect finish
So I thank her for her request

                                  This month on Let's Craft and Create the theme is Beachy OR
                                                              Red White and Blue
                                When you see my card you will never guess what I chose  LOL

                                            I first painted the background in water colors
                                                      on ( wait for it )  water color paper
                          Then with the help of a basket full of Stampscape stamps  my Misti
                                                             and Distress inks
                                                    I had fun creating the scene
                                       Not quite sure what those little pesky insects are
                                                          but it  seemed to   work
                                                                I hope you enjoy it

                                                                  And here it is
