Get Well Chicken Soup – one image/four cards

I Copic coloured four copies of Chicken Soup by Bugaboo to make get well cards. Vs making them all the same, I decided to make 4 different cards using four difference challenge sketches.

For my first card I used a sketch by Techno Stamper - Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 338 (TSSC338)

For my second card, I used a sketch on the Digi Sketch Challenge Blog. I did not use the theme Lace and Pearls though, just the inspiration.

For card number three, my inspiration came from Papertake Weekly - Sketchie Free For All #97

For my final card, I made my fourth card based on the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #273.

Got Candy?

I made another easel card, but this one has a little twist…an action wobble! I used the Mummy with Candy Corn stamp by Bugaboo that I coloured with Copic markers. On the front of the front I layered two Halloween patterned papers then adhered my little ghoul with an action wobble. Next I added a little spider and web by MFT to the left corner. On the inside of the card, I layered three papers. To hold the card, I put down a black and orange vine die cut from Memory Box and glued three buttons on. The sentiment is from MFT. It is hard to show motion with still photography, but it is cute the way the mummy bobs back and forth.

Batty for You

Halloween is almost upon us, and I am saddened that I will have to pack away my Halloween stuff until next year. For this card I used stamps from SSS – Trick or Treat, and  MFT – BB Witch Way is the Candy. I wanted to keep the card CAS with the focus on the cute handcoloured critters.

I want my Mummy!

I wanted to make a CAS card using the mummy dog from SSS – Trick or Treat. I handcoloured him and a couple of pumpkins from MFT – Witch ways is the candy -  with Copics. I have never used washi tape in any of my cards, so I wrapped a piece of card stock with various neutral toned tapes as used it as an interesting “wrapped” background for my image. The sentiment is from MFT.

Witching Hour

Halloween is just a few days away. I love making these fun cards…because when else can you combine purple and orange! I started this card by embossing a spider web using a Stampin Up Embossing Folder. Next I stamped and coloured the little witch and pumpkin from MFT - BB Witch Way Is the Candy?. The sentiment (embossed in gold) is also from MFT. I designed this card for Cards in Envy - Any WITCH Way You Can! Challenge
