I have used their stamp - Sleepy Time for this card.
This fox is beautiful.  I nestled her onto a die cut from Stampin Up
from the set: Swirly Scribbles and punched a few very mini butterflies that I can't remember what store I found at. Sorry.
I think this would make a great note card or even a get well card.

You have until Friday eve to post your projects!

I love the chill and the beautiful changing colors in nature.
That also means Halloween is approaching.

our theme this challenge is...

For my card I used a digital from My Grafico.  I added some eyelashes and nail polish to make a girl monster.
I am not a fan of scary LOL, but I think she is cute.

I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and sponged the panel, added some splatters and a few sequins.

Let me know how you like her!

Happy Monday!  New week and new challenge over at 

We have a great theme going on, so be sure to stop over and
check out all the Design Teams cards!

So, Spectacular Backgrounds,  I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do.
With this adorable winter holiday image from Crafty Sentiments, I needed 
to make it wintery.  
(Harriet Lantern) you can find her HERE.

I took glossy card stock and embossed it with the background stamp from Fiskers with white embossing powder.
Then using a multi color blue ink pad, I brayered the whole card front in the shades of blue.
Wiped off the card front with a cloth. 
Colored her up using Copic Markers and there you go. One holiday card done!

I haven't used this technique in many years.  So fun to go back and revisit!
