Ye Olde Boneyard - Peachy Keen Face Day Project

Hi Everyone!!  Here's a cute Spooky Halloween Box Card I made for today's Peachy Keen Face Day. I used the Zombie Face Assortment Stamps for all the pumpkins.  For the two tombstones I used sentiments from the Ye Old Boneyard and Halloween Sentiments and Labels sets.

The box card is from SVGCuts new kit Autumn Box Cards, I just altered it a bit for a whimsical Halloween Theme!!

Bedroom Door Sign with Action Wobbles - Carta Bella Design Team Project

Hi everyone!!  It’s Brigit sharing a bedroom door sign using the Boy Oh Boy paper collection. This paper is so cute the bright patterns are just fabulous and those monsters are simply adorable!! I picked up a pack of Action Wobbles and thought it would be so cute to put them on the two larger monsters for some interactive fun!

To make the Action Wobble sturdier:

1. I used some powder on the back of the monster to get rid of the stickiness.

2. I traced around onto a piece of cereal box, (easier to cut then chipboard) and then cut it out.

3. Glued the monster onto the cutout and trimmed a little off of the action wobble.

4. Peeled and glued onto the back of the monster and then onto the decorated door sign.

Here they are both wobbling away!

I love the lil’ monster swinging on the tire, it’s an Echo Park file found in the Silhouette Online Store, Tree & Tire Swing.

Well I hope you enjoyed this project, the Action Wobbles are a fun way to use your Carta Bella Stickers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

This All Occasion release brings wonderful images for projects centered around a birthday theme, as well as some great stamps that pair up perfectly with stamps that have been released previously this year. I can see the Birch Background stamp used with our camping themed release, a rustic Christmas project, Halloween, masculine “guy” cards and so, so much more! Smile Eagle goes amazingly well with the Birch Background, too, and can’t us just see that little fella used for some AWESOME patriotic projects?

Peachy Keen Stamps September 2014 Release Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome back creative friends!
How about that first day of sneak peeks? Pretty amazing, right? Well we have more!!
Welcome to Day #2 of sneak peeks for the PKS September 2014 Release!
Tonight our talented team members are sharing some outstanding creations using four new stamp sets that were originally designed and created to go with various other stamp sets or themes that have been previously released. Each month as Kathy begins her creative process, she takes sketches and ideas from a specific theme and runs with it. There's no way she could possibly include each and EVERY sketch or idea in every release, but some of them are just too darned cute NOT to make the cut at some point. This is where this release comes in. This evening you will see creations using the 
Haunted A2 Background, Birch Frame Background, Ballet Bears, and Smile Eagle.

Here's my card using the Haunted A2 Background and yesterday's releases Sentiments for September and the Variety Face Assortment set.  This background is awesome, I just added the little ghost with that adorable face, totally love!!

Friends, be sure to drop by their blogs for ALL the information about how they created these amazing samples and don't forget to leave your comments for a chance to win ALL of the stamp sets being featured tonight! Winners will be announced on Monday, September 8th.
Thanks you for joining us tonight! Mark your calendars and set your alarm for TOMORROW night at 6 p.m. CDT, when you can join us for the complete Release and Reveal Blog Hop!
There's lots more fun, prizes and inspiration on tap, and we'll see you then!!!
