Welcome to this weeks Melonheadz challenge. This week we are challenging you to use Halloween/Costumes. ( I had my months mixed up.) I will be back later with correct one. I choose this cute owl.

Frosted Paper cards

Both cards show case Frosted B&T along with Sparkle and Shine washi tape. The first one I did to show how versatile the papers are. The second one is show casing the Santa Claus set. I just love all the images. If interested in any of the items, you can go shopping at my Close to My Heart site. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

October Stamp of the Month

Both cards use Sparkle and Shine paper pack and Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month. I used the Frosted kit for guidline for the layouts of the cards. The bottom card has the Sparkle and Shine Washi Tape which is amazing. I can see lots of uses other than for holiday cards. You can visit my site and get the set for $5 when you spend $50. http://www.anitaautore.ctmh.com

Best Wishes

I played with my Paper Temptress papers. The pink pattern paper is a Hambly screen print. I paired it with Bubblegum and Chocolate Truffle Linen. Smooth Silver Lustre is behind the papers. I used CTMH Seasons Art Philosphy Cartridge stamp set. I used a Operation Write Home sketch. I love their sketches because they give you the size of the layers so makes putting cards easy. I will mail this for the card drive that Paper Temptress is having. There is amazing prizes available. I hope you join us.

Blast Off

Ok, this fun photo is of my son having fun. The flames were added in photoshop. I used the Cricut to cut the title, gears and squares for the circuit board. The middle photo shows a close up of the Pro Player paper that is perfect for this page. I paired it with Sarita.  I inked the title to have it stand out a bit more. I used Reflections idea book for the layout.

Yummy Ice Cream

This was during the summer when my daughter was visiting with her cousins. I played with CTMH Artbooking for the sunburst background. I used chipboard for the yum to give it depth. Both sayings are from Artbooking CTMH stamps.
