My Sheri Crafts Challenge-Tag, You're It!

Happy Halloween! I hope your day is frightful! It's also time for a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts.
The theme this time is, Tag, You're It! We want to see a tag or a tag shape on your project! I've made a vintage style mixed media tag for you today.


I started my tag with a large manila tag from Ranger. I tea stained the tag by letting it soak in tea overnight. Once it dried, I layered it with some vintage sheet music and a doily that has been tea stained as well. I found this old photo of a very fashionable lady, and thought it would be neat to make a tag using textiles that I thought you might find on her hat and possibly her dress. Sort of a seamstress's sample card. So I found some ribbon, bits of lace and satin ribbon that I thought looked pretty together. I attached them to my tag with small dabs of hot glue. You could use fabric glue as well.
This tag would look nice anywhere you ant to add a sweet vintage touch.

I hope you'll join us over at My Sheri Crafts and link up your tag projects! Hope to see you there!
Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!!

JustRite Papercraft October Release-Peonies

Good morning and welcome to the final day of the October release from JustRite Papercraft! Today we're introducing a lovely floral stamp set, Peonies. I love this set because it has a mason jar that you can use to put your peonies in to create a lovely bouquet! Another reason I love this one so much is that it also has matching dies!You can cut out your flowers and jar easily and perfectly. I did make a different card for you today, to show you that you can also use the flowers all by themselves.

The sentiment is from Sunday's featured set, Doodled Roses. I used a melon and green color scheme again today; I was on a roll from Sunday!:) To see the individual items, just click on the links in pink.

JustRite Papercraft October Release-Doodled Roses

Good morning and welcome to another inspiration filled day featuring JustRite Papercraft's October release! Today, we're introducing a cute whimsical stamp set called Doodled Roses. It has some fun, simple rose illustrations and super sweet sentiments.

I made this simple but cute card by using my Spectrum Aqua water based pens and coloring directly onto the stamp using pink and green. Any water based marker that you may have will work with this technique. I spritzed the stamp with water before I stamped it onto a water color paper panel. I should tell you that I did stamp my sentiment in black dye ink and let it dry thoroughly before I stamped the flowers. If you're short on time, you could use StazOn ink so it will dry instantly.  For the drip effect, I  filled my water brush, touched the marker tip with it, then flicked it on the paper. I just did it randomly, no rhyme or reason. After my paper was dry, I die cut it using a label die and adhered it to my card.

I'll be back on Tuesday, which is the final release day with a new card for you. See you then!

JustRite Papercraft October Release- Morning Splendor

Happy Saturday! Welcome to another day of JustRite Papercraft's October release. Today we are showcasing a sweet floral stamp set called Morning Splendor. There are some beautiful morning glory floral images here as well as some sentiments in a gorgeous script font.

I don't normally make shaped cards, but I wanted to show you the Art Nouveau Oval Tonic dies. They are large, this one is approximately 5x7 inches, but the set goes up to 6x8, which would work wonderfully if you like really large cards or would like to use them on a scrapbook page. I water colored my morning glories using various shades of purple, blue and pink.I think this would make a lovely wedding card.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new project for you from this release. Have a wonderful Saturday!

JustRite Papercraft October Release-Framed With Love And Wedding Inner Sentiments

Good morning and welcome to another day of inspiration from JustRite Papercraft!  I'm using the featured stamps from today PLUS the stamps featured yesterday, all on one card! They are super versatile because they can all be mixed and matched together. Today, we are showing you projects made with Framed With Love and Wedding Inner Sentiments.


I've created a rustic wedding card for you today. I picture this card being given for a fall wedding. It has a rustic shabby chic look that I love for Autumn card making. The main sentiment was made from yesterday's featured stamps, Grand Wedding Wishes. I've decorated the inside of the card with a sentiment from Wedding Inner Sentiments.


I've also stamped a border using the little bell image that is in the Framed With Love set. All of these sets combined make a very useful addition to your stamp collection for making wedding cards. If you would like to take a closer look at the stamps, all of the stamp names are linked and appear in pink. Just click that word to be taken to the JustRite store to check them out. The entire October release is shipping as well. Click here to see all of the new stamps.

Vintage Postcard Halloween Cards

Happy Wednesday! Fall is setting in on us here finally! The days are still warm, but the mornings and evenings are cool enough for a jacket,Yaaay! Can you tell I'm excited? :) Halloween continues to be one of my favorite holidays. I love to decorate the house with cute decorations and making Halloween cards!
I've recently begun collecting antique post cards again. I had a small collection many years ago, and they somehow went missing in a move across the country. I love the old graphics and the best part are the messages written on them! I love wondering about who they were and what their lives must have been like.
Today, I have two Halloween cards for you that include vintage postcard images. These are reproductions of postcards I've found online. I haven't been able to locate any real ones for my collection yet.


This one amuses me because it's a little weird! Who is that little pumpkin boy? He's cute, but a little strange! I've seen lots of old postcards with strange images on them. I assume they made sense back in the old days and we've simply lost context for them today. I still think the image is lovely, however. I used mainly My Mind's Eye papers from a few years ago. They used to be one of my all time favorite companies.

This is one of my favorite postcard images for Halloween. You've probably seen her everywhere! She reminds me of my daughter when she was small. I really like how this card turned out. Yes, some folks do send Halloween cards! Both of these were bought by a very sweet customer of mine and she loved them. I hope you're having fun this October making Halloween cards!

I'll be back on Friday with a new card for the JustRite Papercraft October release; I hope you'll join me!
Thanks for visiting!

Anna Griffin Endora Halloween Cards

Good morning everyone! October is finally here. I'm looking forward to this month because this is the time our Georgia heat finally tapers off and we can enjoy the outdoors without sweating so much! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the pumpkins, costumes, decorations and the candy! I've eaten my share of candy corn already!  My kids are too old to trick or treat, but we love hosting trick or treaters at our door and giving out candy Halloween night. I have some Halloween cards for you today. These were mostly made with Anna Griffin's Endora line.

First up is my favorite, a raven card. Love him! I had this in my Etsy shop. It sold recently and went to a new home.

This one is made with an old public domain photograph I found online. Love all the vintage witches! My favorite one is third from the right. She does not look as amused as the others!

Last but not least is one I made with a Found Relatives photo from Tim Holtz. Love the crepe paper flower and chevron ribbon!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Do you like making Halloween cards? Thanks for stopping over and have a wonderful day!
