Cardztv Go To Galz GHOST AND GOBLIN challenge!

The colors of fall are starting to
dot the landscape.  Looking at homes while
I drive to work, I'm beginning to see pumpkins,
corn stalks and other fall decor displayed
prominently on front porches and let's not
forget the Halloween candy in ALL the stores.

Well I hope you are ready for some fun with the 
Go To Galz from Cardztv Stamps.  We are having a
GHOST AND GOBLIN CHALLENGE.

DATES: October 18 - noon on October 31
Create a layout, card or other craft project
for Halloween.

Mary has posted some great projects doing different
card folds and that was the reason I created this one.

Take a 12 inch piece of cardstock and cut at 4 inches.
Then score at 4 & 8 inches and do a mountain/valley fold.

As you can see I just decorated all three panels
to create a SPOOKY scene.  I used my 
Martha Stewart punch to get the spooky fence.
I love that fence.

I broke out my Gypsy to cut the tree and the
moon and SCARY letters.  I added some white
gel pen on the wording to make it show up a little
more.  You can see that I sprinkled some sequins
here and there just to add a little zip!


I love how this card turned out!  I used two sets of 
Cardztv stamps and I love them both.



Spooky Sayings & Oct 31 are the two sets.
These are great sentiments for ALL your fall creations.



Well I just had to add in one more card.  I love this one!
The witches boots are from the Silhouette store
and the "skirts" are just scraps of paper
with a border punch for the hem.
The sentiment is a NEW one from
Cardztv Stamps called Trick or Treat.




Thanks for stopping by today!  Now it's time
to get YOUR craft on and link to our
challenge!

TSQ Color Challenge -Orange, Black & Yellow

Are you ready for a fun color challenge!

The Scrapping Book Queen has issued a fun, fun challenge.

Here is my card:


One of my favorite features of my Silhouette is
the print and cut feature.  Could this crow be any cuter! 
The step card is also a cut from the Silhouette store, 
so head over for both of these cuts and 
make up your own All Hallow's Eve card.

The sentiment comes from Cardztv Stamps!

Now let me tell you something about the print
and cut features.  By adding just a little extra
(gel pen, glossy accents, stickles) the affect
is awesome!

Have fun!

Congratulations!

I needed a couple of congratulation
cards tonight, so I pulled out My Creative
Time and Cardztv Stamps.
These are my go to stamps almost exclusively 
and I love them.

I apologize for the lighting on this photo.
Fall is here and it's getting darker quicker
here in Indiana.  I used My Creative Time
dies for the clouds, "sun" and banner.
"The Sky is the limit" is also from My Creative Time.
I used two sets of Cardztv Stamps:
Up and Away for the kite, and the fabric
tie.  The sentiment "way to go" is from This and That 
stamp set.  The background cloud paper
was a print paper (freebie) from the internet but
I can't remember where I got it - sorry!

Anyway I hope you enjoy my step card!

Cardztv Breast Cancer Awareness - Go To Galz Challenge

Welcome to another challenge
with the Go To Galz from Cardztv!  

Your challenge is to create a card, project
or layout for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Challenge dates are October 4 - noon October 17th
Link up your creation on www.cardztv.blogspot.com
and you could win a set of Cardztv stamps.


I am becoming obsessed with shaker cards and sequins!
I created this template on my Cameo so now when I want
to create a card, I just go to the file and cut it out.

My sequins came from My Craft Spot & Neat & Tangled.
The pink ribbon is a Silhouette cut and I applied
some stickles on the heart to make it stand out a little more.

I used the REJOICE stamp set for my sentiment.  This
is one of my favorite scriptures and feel that God is in 
control of our strength and that with his help, we will
continue to make strides to knock out breast cancer.


This is a great set of stamps.  Sometimes nothing says 
what we need to convey like the scripture.  Mary has other
scripture stamps too!

For anyone who want to learn how to make
a shaker card, here is a video. 


Thanks for stopping by today.

Join the challenge over at 
Cardztv Stamps!
