Spots and Dots

MSL is starting a new challenge today - Spots and Dots!  This is a challenge that is near and dear to my heart since it reminds me of Ladybugs.  I am a fanatic when it comes to Ladybugs!  So of course, the spots and dots had to be in red and black!  LOL!  And of course, I used the Magnolia image - Tilda with Ladybug.  I also used one of my favorite Stamping Scrapping stamp sets - Sweet Bugs!

I hope you are inspired to post a creation of your own after looking at my creation!

Here is the front of my card:

Here is the inside of my card!

Happy Sunday!

I have created my card using kraft  cardstock in various designs.  I used Stamping Scrapping's Sweet Bugs stamp set on my card.  I just love this stamp set, but I am a ladybug fanatic!  LOL!

Hope you enjoy my creation!

Hint of the Holidays

Today is my day to post a card on MSL for the 2 SB Dies Challenge.  I used the two Spellbinder's Dies Fancy Ribbon Threader and Classic Scalloped Circle.  I used Core'dinations glitter cardstock for the card base, Neenah vellum, DP cardstock and Cryogen.  The Magnolia image that I used is Wrapped Tilda.  I thought the colors and the image gave a Hint of Holidays to come.  I guess I am starting to think about Christmas but not quite there yet!  LOL!

Hope my card inspires you to make a creation of your own!

Happy Saturday!

Candy Corn Kisses

I am gearing up for Halloween and made this cute little "gift" holder.  I used the new papers and stamp set from A|Muse to create this.  Love the little bag that I slipped candy corn into.  By the way, have you tried the caramel apple candy corn this year yet?  Oh My Gosh, they are very addictive.

Hope you enjoy my creation - now to know who to give them to!  LOL!

Have a great Sunday!

Hugs, Meg

World Cardmaking Day

Happy World Card Making Day!  I had to post a card today for this great event!  I am posting a card we made in our A|Muse Workshop last week.  It is a simple card, but I just love the Fall feel!

I will probably use this card for one of the many birthdays that we have in our family this month!  I just love this leaf stamp set.  It is one of my favorites.

Hugs, Meg

Dracula Edwin

Today I am posting a Halloween Card using Dracula Edwin for the Boo 4 U Challenge on MSL.  I used Core'dinations cardstock for the base of the card, Bazzill cardstock to stamp Edwin on, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 6 to cut out Edwin, Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress InkCopic Markers, and Halloween scrap paper.

I made the inside simple, but it is ready for stamping a sentiment.

I hope this inspires you to create a Halloween card of your own.

Happy Thursday!  

Hugs, Meg

Fall Leaves

I love those Wine and Design places, where you paint a picture and drink wine while doing it.  I am not a painter, but I seem to be able to make this work!  The place that I tend to go to is Artistic Abandon.  I am going to show you how this all works.

First you begin with a blank canvas -

Then you start to add some color -

With this we painted the whole background yellow, then we started mixing brown and red with the yellow to get various shades and start on the ground and sky areas.  Here is the next iteration of these colors - 

Now we started adding the tree trunks - 

You can start seeing the ground versus the landscape and sky areas.  What I find amazing is how this progresses.  Now I am adding some more red so that the sky area looks like sunlight coming through the Fall leaves!

So what do you think of the finished product?

I just love doing this!  It is so relaxing and fun!
