A cute card!

I actually won (well, I tied really) a little monthly contest put on by Stampin' Cat last month. The contest required the use of these alphabet letters to be used on the project.

I used them in a much different way than they were intended.

And came up with this little cutie patootie! I layered her a bit to add dimension...used a gold gel pen and a white gel pen, my very few copics, and some metallic gold paper. I was quite pleased with how it turned out!As you can see, I randomly placed the stickers around the edge of the card base. It was only a tiny bit tedious, but really it didn't take all that long and the look is awesome. So if you have any stickers lying around, this is an idea! I'd love to hear what you think!

Simple, Special, Stunning!

It is time for the October edition of Simple Special Stunning at the SheetLoad of Cards blog, featuring samples by Katie Skiff.

Each month one of our artists will share three different cards that use the current layout. Each card is a "step up" from the previous one, but they are all fabulous. It is a good way to show how SheetLoad is geared toward papercrafters of all levels.

Here are some sneak peeks to whet your appetite...

World Card Making Day!

Yep...a day late, but I did make it in time! I was SO inspired by THIS card!!! I had to try my hand at it. I absolutely love how it turned out and plan to make more! I adjusted my fold lines a bit and made those fantastic oval dimensional pumpkins. I think I could make those all day. And, yes, I do have inky orange fingers from sponging the edges. I hand cut the cornstalks. I think a cornstalk die is in order!
