The Devil in Me

I was inspired to make this Halloween card for the CMC (Color Me Creative) Copic Challenge as well as submit it for as many more challenges as I can. :D They are so fun and even more fun when you win prizes! I have invested in a lot of Copic markers in the past year since I discovered them. I realized today I have another duplicate, I thought for sure I doubled checked them. I really love challenges that force me to use the Copics and practice up. 
With Halloween around the corner I have been anxious to use my She Devil. I bought it in a set at Anita B Stampin's store. Very cute stamps they have! I topped her off with Glossy Accents to  give her fork, red suit, lips and horns a shiny wet look. The sentiment came in the set. I used  punches and a decorative border stamp that was Stampin Up. The mummy is a Stampabilities stamp.

I have submitted this card for the following Challenges:

What is Paper A La Mode?

What a fun unique challenge at The Outlawz. The Paper A La Mode group have put together a fun challenge this last Saturday. You might want to get over there and check it out you have till this Friday to enter your card for this challenge! Hurry! :D

For my card I was determined to use one of my Ippity stamps from Rona. Then it was all about coordinating everything around the stamp. The background paper was also from Rona. The white picket fence and the square doily were both cut on my Cricut machine. I used Tim Holtz distress ink on the edges. The white flowers are a EK punch, the sentiment piece is also a punch, the stamped frame and sentiment is all from Stampin Up. To top it off I added the yellow paper and the brown ribbon.

 4 Items- Gems, Patterned Paper, Ribbon, and Punch for the Sentiment

I have been wanting to use some of the feathers I have had in my craft box for years. Today I found just the right challenges, The Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz and there is only 3 days left to play! Also entered her at St. Lukes Charity cards, Anything Goes and Paper Creations Ink.

For my card I new when I seen feathers I wanted to use a vintage hat with feathers. While searching the internet for clip art I found these images of women from different era's. I printed them all and this is the one I ended up using. I colored the image using my Copic markers, the E group (Eoo, Eo1, E02) for the skin tones,  in the C group (C00, C01, C02) for the boa and the hair (C3, C5, C9), and then shades in the BV group (BV00, BV01,BV02) for the dress, touched it off with R29 on the lips. Used some Tim Holtz distress ink on the images and smudged it into the image piece. I received some stickers in a package of scrap-booking supplies from an Anysoldier Junkie friend who was quitting and the star-burst sticker you see on the feathers was in that package. I sparkled her up with Stickles in Icicle on the boa, and Ruby Slippers on the dress.

Paper Sack Note Card Set

I found this fun tutorial at Booth #32! It is a note card set with envelopes all wrapped up as a birthday gift set. I couldn't resist trying it out so this is my first attempt at this project. I embossed each card with a different embossing folder from the Cuttlebug.

For this card I received the ribbon out of my husbands fancy cigar box. :D The embossing folders are all Cuttlebug folders. The sentiment is Stampin Up.

The Outlawz Sketch Challenge

The sketch challenge at THE OUTLAWZ was very challenging for me this time around. I had no clue as to what trio of pics I wanted to use for my 3 squares, ideas were piling up and I had to put one of them ideas into action. For this card I used Sandi's digi's I new I wanted to use her digi's this time around but printing them small enough to keep them the same size square I found was difficult and I am not about to waste the images even if they are not square. :) I didn't want to put any color in the flowers but then realized they need to pop some more so I dabbed some colors on the flowers. I am not real happy with the turn out but I can always take it apart and do over. I love paper! lol!
