Scary Pop Up Cards

Boo !!! I have some fun Halloween projects to share with you today first up is a set of pop up cards I made using the silhouette and a design from the online store. This easy pop up card can easily be changed for any season or event. I altered my design cover and inside images from the original to make them a little more original.
Now what is Halloween without a trick or treat bag? This is a split personality bag the one side is your mild midnight scene while the flip side is your horror side. I used the silhouette to cut the house and grave yard, stamped the flying witch and sentiment. The horror side was done with clipart with some added 3-D effects and stickles.

Paint Chip Cards

Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful fall weather. Today I am sharing two cards I did for my card club.
Our challenge was to make a card using paint chips from the paint section of the store. For those of you who can't quite figure out what I am talking about it is the paint swatches you get to take home to match your decor. I guess I should thank Walmart, Homedepot and Lowes 
for the contribution to our challenge (smile)
Now to my cards I used the circle paint chips for my card  the circles are already on the paper I just embossed over them for a more textured look. The scalloped circles are spellbinders and the stamped sentiment is from the $1 bin. The pink card has a store bought embellishmentand and the same spellbinder
scalloped circles. hope this inspires you to take a trip to the paint section for your next card.

100 Years

Today I am sharing one of my favorite images I just love this sweet senior couple by Mo Manning at digital pencil too she has the most adorable images. I have often used this couple for Valentines cards,Anniversary and this time for my husbands birthday last month. I paired it with a favorite verse, colored it with copics and added a sentiment inside. Masculine cards are my least favorite to do so I think I will make a few more to try to improve Thanks for dropping in Alicia
