The Beary Cutest In The Patch

Hi fellow stampers..  
I'm here today to share a cute little fall themed card I created as my design team project using some of the amazing stamps from the Craftin Desert Diva's store.. 

Here is the card I created:
Eeeek.. I can't get enough of that adorable teddy bear :)
I am a fall nut and so I love everything that comes with Autumn.. The colors, the pumpkins, sunflowers.. oh my!!  :)   This guy was so much fun to color..

How about some close ups and details:

I loved adding a few falling leaves, just a little detail underneath with a fine tip black marker..
That sentiment, I thought it would great for any kind of a card..

The pumpkins I colored using different tones of yellow, tan and brown.. 
the taller pumpkins looked like they could be spotted, so added different tones of Green :)
and finally a little highlights using a white gel pen.. 

Here are the stamps I used to create this card:

Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my cute little beary thankful card..

"Mad" Halloween wishes-card-PPPR daily

Hi fellow crafters..
I'm here today to share a fun Halloween card I created using the "Science lab" cutting file as my design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
I've had this idea in my head for a while now and really wanted to share it with you, even thought we all just celebrated Halloween last weekend :)  It's never too late or too early to get crafting on next years cards right? 

Here is the card I created:
I had so much playing with all of these cutting files..

Here are a few close ups:
I used the books from the Bookworm couple cutting file, then layered all kinds of beakers and jars on top and in front.. The skull is from the Skeleton Couple cutting file..

The eyes, how creepy but so cute right?..LOL Those eyes are from the beakers in the science lab cutting file and added a the flour container from the Baking fun cutting file as the creepy jar to keep them in :)
The font is a free font I found online and created the large label in the back of my card, which can be found in the Layered Labels two cutting file,  added some bubbles in there to go along with the theme and then of course, what creepy mad science lab card would be complete without glasses..which are also from the Science lab cutting file.. 

and their you have my creepy mad science themed Halloween card..
Thanks for stopping by today..
Till next time
