Inspired By Stamping Day

Happy Halloween --  It's Inspired By Stamping day today here on the blog.

I made a Halloween card for my Inspired By Stamping post using A Spooky Halloween, and Holiday Washi Tape.


I have to say these spiders really creep me out! Seriously realistic looking... ewww



If you celebrate Halloween, have a good one.  Me?  I'll be watching tv with my porch light off.  Just call me Halloween Grinch....

Cardabilities & i{heart}papers

It's time for Cardabilities Sketch #110 and my last post for i{heart}papers as their Guest Designer.

For my Cardabilities Sketch I used a couple of IHP products:
I also used Avery Elle Hello Elle-ments and some wood veneers I had laying in a drawer.  It's a really clean use of the sketch I have to say, but I still like my card.


I am so excited to say that Karan has approved another term for me to design with Cardabilities!  I love her sketches and am proud to do a 4th term with her team!!


And, here is my official last i{heart}papers card:

A very clean and simple card that I made using the following IHP products:

And that's a wrap a for today!  I would like to thank i{heart}papers for having me Guest Design the last couple of months!  I had a great time!

I am totally in love with the clarity of my photo!! [You will be seeing this in future posts..]  For this card I used the following Heartfelt Creations products:

Happy Birthday & AAA Card Challenge #26


Today, the Inspired By Stamping Design Team is hopping for Joanna's [the owner] and the company, Inspired By Stamping, birthday! If you are hopping, you should be coming from Shan's Blog.  [To start at the beginning, pop on over to Joanna's blog for the complete list of participants.] It's been 3 years up and running for the company, and more then that, for Joanna up and running ;).  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to both!

I used IBS Background Basics III, Chalkboard Birthday and Flowers Bloom to make my birthday card for Joanna.

 J, I hope you have a fabulous birthday.  If I know you, I am sure it will be on the boat somewhere awesome!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

[This is the last stop of the hop for Joanna's birthday]



It is also AAA Card Challenge #26 time.  This week's challenge is a clean and simple Halloween card.

 I dug through my give-a-way stamp pile and found some Halloween stamps from Inkadinkado, Gemstone Halloween.  My sentiment is from SP Company, [which I just found out is OOB].

As you all know, Halloween is not something I like, in fact, I have disliked this "holiday" for a long time.  This is to your benefit because I am giving this Inkadinkado stamp set to a random commenter!  So, leave me a comment, and I will chose a random winner next SATURDAY, November 1st.  I know, Halloween will be over for this year, but you can save the set for next year!  It's a pretty cool set, even though it is a Halloween one ;).

Meanwhile, pop on over to AAA Card Challenge #26, and play along!  While there, be sure and check out the rest of the Team's sample cards~


And last, but not least, there is also another surprise birthday gathering for Shirley-Bee!!

 I wanted to use Shirley's new Bee's Knees release, City Girl.  I adore this image!  I used a Copic dotted coloring technique. Don't you think it works perfectly with her classy look?  And the gray stockings? I love this image!
Maria is hosting this birthday get together with a Linky [starts 8AM GMT today]!  Feel free to pop on over and say HAPPY HAPPY to Shirley, and upload a card!  The more the merrier!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHIRLEY!!
