Yummy Marshmallows

Here is a close up of the title.
Here is the edited page. Below you can see the original. The idea was given to me by my hubby. It fills in the blanks space.
This page shows my daughter enjoying roasting marshmallows during our summer vacation. I created the title in photo shop and then printed them out. I used a SU punch to cut them out. The little element at the bottom is supposed to be a fire. Not sure about it. It definitely looks better IRL. As I look at this page it needs something more will post it again when i add the fix.

Hambo Design Call

Here is a close up of Wee Henrieta Witch from Hambo Stamps. I colored with Prisma Pencils. I added Gunmetal Stickeles to her hat and dress. Silver Viva Decor pen was used around image and on hat band.
Here you can see the whole treat box. It is the skull treat box from Cutting cafe. I embossed with SU spider web folder. The ribbon is from my stash.

This card uses Banana Kid from Hambo Stamps. This fits this weeks Hambo Hoedown challenge to use something from the house. I choose to try an idea I saw on another blog. To glue a used dryer sheet to a piece of card stock than dry emboss it. I used a vertical strips folder from Stampin Up. I love the texture this gives. The papers are Sparkle Noir, Sparkle Mangue, & Sparkle Noir from Paper Temptress. The black seam binding is from Ribbon Carousel. The yellow ribbon is from my stash. The rhinestones and pearls are from Pizzaz Aplenty. Both projects were created for the Hambo Design Call. I encourage you all to try out. This card fits Ribbon Carousel Challenge to get Punny.

Paper Craft magazine Rejects

Both cards were for Paper Crafts Magazine last call. I followed sketch 1. I am trying my hand at CAS cards. I like them both. They both use Paper Temptress paper. I got myself over the hurdle of being afraid to enter. Now to try again. I did both at the last moment. I wish you could see them in IRL and the texture is just amazing but hard to photograph.

Through the Craft Room Door Challenge

Welcome to another fantastic Through the Craft Room Door Challenge. The challenge this week is to use the above photo for inspiration and to include the color green. Our sponsor is Paper Temptress.

My card uses Light Green Basis, Basis Gray, Rose Quartz Metallic, & Sparkle Blanc from Paper Temptress. I colored the image with prisma pencils. I added glossy accents to bubbles and liquid white enamel. I have to confess that the bath tub had to be paper pieced because there is a big ink stain. The flowers are covering another boo boo. So be creative to hid the mistakes is the lesson learned here. The seam binding is from Ribbon Carousel. The image is from There She Goes and is called Rejuvenate.

Sunset Ride

I have been battling allergies lately so not much crafting going. I did get a DT projects done so those will be coming up soon. I make scrapbook calendars for family for Christmas. This is one of the pages. It fits Drunken Stampers challenge to show us what you did this summer. My husband and daughter took a ride during our vacation to the Oregon Coast. I didn't go on the ride so no photos of me on a horse. I used Kraft 12x12 for the base and Chocolate chip to mat photos and journal box.
