Wynona Witch

Hello everybody!

Here I am with my DT Halloween card which I created for  Conie Fong's October Monthly Challenge on Facebook.
Conie also has an October Coloring Challenge.  This endearing image is "Wynona Witch".  Isn't she just precious? This image comes in 2 versions:  Wynona holding a pumpkin basket and another with her holding a cooking pot basket. You can find them in Conie's etsy shop here:



A close-up of this cutie:


She is coloured with a combination of Copic markers and FB Polychromos pencils.  The cute little ghosts are made with Memory Box's "Ghost Trio" die.  The "Spiderweb Corner" die is from Frantic Stamper.  I cannot remember who makes the little fence die.  Gems and cheese cloth are from my stash.  No flowers?  What's happening to me - LOL!  Enjoy your day.  Lori P xx

Halloween Dusk

A good morning/ afternoon to you!

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Guess what?  It's raining here, again.  But, it's a brand new week and so I am delighted to share my 3rd and final DT inspirational card made for Ching-Chou Kuik's monthly Facebook Challenge.
You can win some lovely images if you participate.  This stunning image is "Halloween Dusk" and can be found in her etsy shop, along with another beautiful Halloween image, here:

I love Halloween but even more so when my sons were little.  I made all their costumes and went Trick-or-Treating with them every year.  What fun we all had.  I sure miss those days!


Here is a closer look: 


I have coloured her with a combination of Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  The ghost is made with Impression Obsession's "Halloween Die Set" die.  The frame is made with Martha Stewart's "Halloween Spiderweb" Around the Page punches.

The flowers are handmade.   Trim and floss are from my stash.  Have a wonderful week!  Lori P xx

Ballerina Kitty

Hi there, peeps!

Well, another rainy day here. The theme at Aurora Wings Challenge Blog this month is a wonderful one ("Inspired by Music").  https://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.com/  As we all know, the power of music is remarkable in so many ways.  

I decided to use Aurora Wings'  gorgeous "Ballerina Kitty" because, as a little girl, I always wanted to take ballet lessons.  Unfortunately, it didn't happen but there's not a day that goes by that I don't listen to music.  This delightful image makes me think of Tchaikovsky's beautiful ballet "Swan Lake".   It can be found here:



I made my own piano template.  I love to make piano shaped cards and so I've used this template a number of times.  The black keys are raised with 3-D dots.  It's tedious work but I am pleased with the results. Here is a close-up of the sweet image:


When the card is opened, you can see the piano shape:


She is coloured with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  The corner die cut is made with Crafter's Companion's "Lace Corner" die.  The tiny leaves are made with Cheery Lynn Designs' "Flourish Leaf Strip" die.   My flowers are handmade.  Ribbon and Swarovski crystals are from my stash. I'm am going to enter this card on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog as well.  http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/ 

Have a lovely day!  Lori P xx

Sunflower Night

Hi peeps!  Another Monday upon us.  It's been cloudy and/or raining here nearly every single day.  What has happened to the sun?  Today, I am showcasing my 2nd DT card created for Ching-Chou Kuik's monthly Facebook challenge (theme: Halloween).
You can win some lovely images if you join in.  Halloween always evokes some wonderful memories for me.  I always sewed my sons' costumes when they were little, and what fun it was to go Trick-or-Treating with them.  Oh, how I miss those times!  Without further ado, here is my card:


This beautiful image is "Sunflower Night" by Ching-Chou Kuik and can be found here:

A closer look of this beautiful image:


I have coloured her with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  The "Corner Cobweb" and "Ghost Trio" dies are by Memory Box, the "Iron Fence" and "Drippy Goo Edge" punches are by Martha Stewart.  If you look closely, there are no flowers!!!  Very unusual for me!  I wish you a lovely day.  Lori P xx
