The sentiment is from Monster Mash.  I love it because it can be used for so many occasions and not just for Halloween!

I really like the look of this vibrant green with the greys and black.

Meow-lloween Kitties


I have another card to share from the wonderful new CC Designs August release.
This time I've used the cute mummy cat from the Meow-lloween Kitties set.

There are heaps of cute cats in this set but when I saw this one I had the idea to write "Curses"  on the front and I'll probably add "I forgot your birthday" on the inside (knowing me).




I don't think I've raided the medicine cabinet when crafting before but I did for this card.  I decided to use a little piece of real bandaging and left it dangling down on the side.  It looks great in real life :)

I used the new Half Rectangles Die to cut the background papers out and I used the new Dotted Rectangle Die for the base the cats are on.

I made the word using some rub on letters I've had lying around for years.

Ingredients ;
Stamps : Meow-lloween Kitties
Card : x-press it, Delight (authentique)
Ink : memento black
Other : half rectangles die, dotted rectangles die, meow-lloween kitties outline die, rub ons (MM), copics

Copics used :
YR 14, 16, 18
Y 11, 13, 15, 26
YG 0000, 01, 03
R 00, 20
W 1

Monster Mash Witch

For the month of August, we have 7 character stamp sets with coordinating dies available for purchase, Layering Tags Die, Dotted Rectangles Die, Half Rectangles Die, and Shadow Spots Die.




I decided to use the super-cute little witch from the new Monster Mash stamp set.
I coloured her with Copics and added some black sparkles to her hat and cut her out with the Monster Mash Outline Die.  Then I created a pretty moonlit sky for her to fly around in :)
I used distress inks and some texture paste with the Boy Doodles Stencil.

Monster Mash

Wow it's August already?!
And that means another new release from CC Designs :)
This is a sneak peek of a new set called Monster Mash.
It comes with 3 amazingly cute and spooky little monsters with sentiments too.



I decided to make a little sticky note holder with this cute little guy.
I used the Monster Mash Outline Die to cut him out and the shadow is something new too.  It's called the Shadow Spot Die, there are 3 different sized shadows and they add an element of fun I think.
I also used the new Layering Tags Die.

I think this would make a great little gift for one of my girls male teachers.

Pop over to the CC Designs blog to see some more sneak peeks, you may even win a prize.
And tomorrow is Release Day, we'll be doing a blog hop with more chances to win, so please drop by again then :)

I did sponge a cloudy sky for him too but it looks a bit light in the photo.

Splashies

I have a card to share using the cute Splashies set from CC Designs.
The sentiment is included and they are all so cute aren't they?!

Making cards for guys can be a bit tricky but I think these stamps are perfect for boys or men!



I love this Uncharted Waters paper by Glitz and so I coloured the cute images to coordinate with it.
I loved creating this little scene :)
