KKS149 Happy Halloween

This week's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge is being hostessed by Cheryl!! She has challenged us to use skulls on our projects...perfect season for this, right?!

Before we get to that, we are celebrating a LOT over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog and Facebook page!! Games, challenges, and all to celebrate World Card Making Day AND Kraftin' Kimmies anniversary. On top of all the fun, we are having a sale, too!! Be sure to check out the blog, website, and become a fan of ours on Facebook to see all the fun and games!!

For my card for this week's skull shallenge, I used Hattie. She is one of my favorite Halloween images, and I loved getting to color her up!! She was layered with Sour Apple, Grape Jelly, Black Licorice, and Sweet Tooth(all MFT). I used some Echo Park Happy Halloween paper, which is one of the ONLY Halloween paper pads I own...I have a major paper addiction(think 150 6x6 pads, minimum), and out of ALL of those, only two are Halloween. It actually makes me sad because I was really trying to go through my entire paper collection and use EVERY pad once before reusing any, but my lack of Halloween paper really threw that off, lol! Anywho, I used Grape Jelly grosgrain, and some Honeydew twine on a spiral clip, and to tie my bow. My other embellishment was some brads from Michael's. To finish, I added my sentiment using one of the Halloween Trinkets. 

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!! Happy World Card Making Day AGAIN!!

Happy Haunting!!

Hey Everyone!! All of us here at My Favorite Things wish you a Happy World Card Making Day! Maybe your personal style includes coloring with markers, or possibly you enjoy some fresh and clean stamping. Maybe you simply like creating custom elements with our Die-namics dies. Whatever it is that you like to do, we only hope that you get a chance to create something special today!
Don’t forget that we also offer an assortment of coordinating Replenishments including cardstock, felt, buttons and ribbon.
Sketches are always a great starting point for a little cardmaking, and we have 92 weeks of sketches available as part of our ongoing Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge. The first year of sketches is available here MFTsketches1-52 and year two (to date) is here MFT Sketches 53-92.

For my card tonight, I used the Who's That Girl Trick or Treat set. I stamped my image on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored it with my Copics. My cardstock colors are Sour Apple, Grape Jelly, and Black Licorice. I paired it with the Echo Park Happy Halloween paper pad, and my embellishments are Michael's brads, MFT Black Licorice ribbon, and I used several Die-namics to create my background. For the circle, I used the Circle Stax Die-namics and the Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. I also used the Fishtail Flag Stax Die-namics. The Photo Corner Die-namics was also used, along with the Sentiment Strips Die-namics for my sentiment.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
