October 2019 Creative Heart Design

Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my second month as a member of the Design Team for  Createful Heart Design, a digital stamp and digital paper company. The owners of Createful Heart Design, Mary, and her husband Mark draw all the digital stamps by hand and Mary designs the digital papers on her computer. It is exciting to be a part of this design team and I hope that you will check out their online store.  Here is a link to the online shop:

The image is "Coffee Buddies" and it features two Hippos holding mugs. I imagine they are drinking hot chocolate, thus I stamped the sentiment "All you need is love and cocoa."  I colored the image using fine tipped sharpie markers. 

Thank you for checking out my October 2019 "Createful Heart Design" card that I created as a Design Team Member. I will be creating November's card soon and will try to create a video for my You Tube Channel.

Please check out the Createful Hearts Digi and Designs Facebook. Page for more information about the digital stamp designs and papers:

Spooky Scene with Moon

Hello. Thank you for stopping by my blog. This card is for the Mod Squad Challenge Blog:

I created this card using the Special Limited Edition Trick or Treat stamp set from Brutus Monroe.   This stamp was included in the 2019 Special Edition Halloween Box.  The tombstones and the owl are both stamps from the set.  The tree is a die cut from the same box. the bats and the ghost are from other die cuts that I've collected. I used pan pastels to make the clouds and the moon in the background of this card.  

If you are not familiar with the Mod Squad challenge I would encourage you to check it out. Each week they have awesome prizes from great companies. This week the prize is a $25 gift card from Kitchen Sink Stamps. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Happy Haunting!

This card is also entered into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge:

Big Moon

Hello everyone! There is a Harvest/Hunter Moon this weekend. When the moon is full this weekend it is going to look larger than normal. The looming moon on the horizon is actually an illusion of the moon being larger than normal. I do not understand the science behind this phenomenon, but I love seeing the moon so large. I took some photos of the moon tonight with my SLR camera. I was lucky enough to capture one photo with a clear view of the the mountains and craters on the moon!

This card design also coincides with the theme of the Mod Squad Challenge this week.  The theme is the moon, so we are encouraged to make a project featuring the moon.


If you are not familiar with the Mod Squad Challenge I would highly encourage you to check it out. Each week they feature a prize from a different stamp company. The prizes are usually electronic gift cards that can be used at online stamp companies. For example this week the prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to Kitchen Sink Stamps!!

To create this card I used the Brutus Monroe All Hallow's Even Stamp Set.  This stamp set was a limited edition stamp set included in the 2018 special limited edition Halloween Inspiration Box/Card Kit.  I love these little kiddos.  They are all dressed up for Trick or Treating!  I used the die that was included in the 2019 Brutus Monroe Halloween Special Edition box.  I also used some dies from other companies to die cut the bats and the ghosts.  This card was alot of fun to create. I hope you enojoyed this post and have a hopeful day!

#31 Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop

Hello. Thank you for stopping by my blog.  September and October have been very busy for me in regards to video blog hops. I was excited to be invited to participate in a fun video hop with a Halloween theme. On October 11th I was featured as the designer of the day for the  #31Days of Halloween Spooktacular Video Hop! Here's the video that I recorded with instructions on how I made this card:  https://youtu.be/ZC9HgOB2w-c

I used the Brutus Monroe All Hallow's Eve Stamp Set to color three cute trick or treaters. They are all children, little girls, one dressed as a mummy, one as a witch and one as a vampire. These cute trick or treaters are featured with a tree in the background and the big moon. I also added some bats and ghosts to the card.  I created the background of the card using pan pastels and a masked circle for the moon. I colored the moon in with yellow and orange pan pastels. I used dies to cut out the sentiments with neon card stock from Brutus Monroe.

I hope you enjoyed this card and please check out the video hop. If you comment on each video (all 31) you will be entered in to win a Big Prize. Thank you to the fellow You Tubers who coordinated the hop, and thanks again for allowing me to be a part of the Video Hop.   

Thanks for stopping by. Have a hopeful day!
