Pumpkin Card - CCC Digi

Wow, it's October 1st already! Before you know it, it's going to be Christmas. I'm so not ready!
I made my first Halloween card for the season. Using this really cute whimsical pumpkin digi image from Oak Pond Creations. She has some of the cutest images in her Etsy store! I colored the pumpkins with Copic markers YR02, YR04 and YR07 and for the leaves I used G21 and G28. I then airbrushed around the edges with E33. I embossed some Black Magic Core'dinations to back the pumpkin image and used Fancy Pants corrugated kraft paper behind that. For the punched border I used a Fiskars border punch.
Here is the finished results....

Hello scrappy friends! Since there is 5 Mondays this month in September, Let's Get Sketchy is having a 5th week challenge for the month.

Ready, Aim, Splat! - RCS

Today I have a page that I created for Red Carpet Studio, the challenge is to use any Robin Williams movie as your inspiration. So I used some pictures of my son and hubby paintballing with the movie "Good Morning Vietnam" as my inspiration for it. I did some major grunge work on the background of this page. I used lots of mists, distressed stamps, modeling paste, crackle paint and crinkled, wrinkled, ripped and distressed it to death. The poor paper went through a major battle! lol
I cut the crosshairs, grenade and title all out on my Cameo. Pop dotted up the picture block and used bits and pieces of some cork. I wasn't so sure about this page at 1st but it actually ended up being a rather fun page to create.

Red Belt - MSAM Sketch #91

Yay, it's Friday! Not only is it Friday but there's also a brand new sketch up on the My Scraps & More Sketches blog today and the sketch is one that I designed. :) I am the featured sketch designer on the blog today, you can find more out about me by going to the post here.
The pictures I used are of my daughter the day she became a red belt from a brown belt in karate. One more testing and if she passes she will be a black belt, which is quite a huge accomplishment at the age of 8!
I decided to go with a black, white and red theme to go with her red belt and found this lace cardstock hidden in my stash. Remember when that stuff used to be really popular? I've never really been good at figuring out what to do with them. I cut this one into a circle and I really like how it looks. I also used some super old papers from 7 Gypsies. I'm happy to finally of found a use for those papers and to also use up more of my stash.

I cut the title out on my Cameo, I'm really loving making my own titles lately.

Cardstock: American Crafts, Lace CS unknown
Patterned paper: 7 Gypsies Savannah & Gypsy Market Papers
Embellishments: Queen & Co. Pearls, Prima Flowers,

Picture Perfect - CC

Today I have a sketch from Colorful Creations to share with ya all. Colorful Creations is also having a design team call, so if you love to scrap and also love to work with sketches then you will love this team. So what are you waiting for, the call ends on Sept. 23!!
On the background I sprayed some mists and also used a brick stencil with some modeling paste and then after it dried I painted the paste with some watercolors to give the rustic brick look. This picture of my kids was about 7.5 years ago on our cruise to Alaska. Since it was a formal picture I went a little more formal with my papers and embellies then I normally do. I always love the looks of Webster's Pages but for my scrappy style I am normally at a loss as to what to do with them. I do though like how this came out with the bricks on the background.

Autumn Wreath

Just wanted to share the 1st wreath I have ever made. Very time consuming and lots of blisters on the fingers later from the hot glue gun but kinda of a fun project. Think I might make some more! But Christmas ones since autumn colors really are not my favorite.
