Getting Ready for Halloween

Greetings and thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Today, I share my cards for Gecko Galz with you, with mixed emotions.  I have decided to step down from the GG Design Team and this is my last set of design samples.  I love GG designs and will truly miss being a part of GG, but will always hold GG dear to my heart. 
The samples were made using background papers from the Freak Show paper pack, images from Halloween is for Kids, Halloween Night and Wicked Words clip art images.  Rubber stamps are from Red Lead Paperworks.

Below is the free clip art image for you from Gecko Galz.  Enjoy.
Thank you for stopping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

High Heels

Greetings! My post tonight is for the newest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is to "use a quote or sentiment." I began with a water color panel and added some Bister crystals to the panel and spritzed with water and let dry. I overstamped the focal image, by Artistic Outpost and then stamped the sentiment by Dyan Reaveley onto scrap card, trimmed and mounted it to the panel. I drew a border free-hand and matted the panel and added it to a card base. I hope you will stop over to FSC to see what the rest of the design team came up with and then consider submitting a creation of your own for a possible prize of a $20 gift voucher by our generous sponsor, Flonzcraft. Thanks for stopping by! Yvonne

Peace and Love

Greetings! My post today is for the new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu for the Pink Team where "Anything Goes!"  I have really been bit by the Mixed Media Bug and wanted to try to use some of my newer stamp images from Stampotique and Kate Crane.  The background is a Traci Bautista Stencil by Stencil Girls that was spritzed with water after sprinkling on Color Burst Crystals.  The stencil was then turned upside down and more color was applied to the panel.  The hand carved images by Kate Crane were dipped in paint and added next.  The angel and sentiment were stamped on scrap card, trimmed, colored with TowBow Markers and adhered to the panel as shown  Touches of gold paint by Golden were added.  The panel was matted with black paper and added to a card base. We look forward to seeing what you share with us! Take care, and as always, thank you for your visits and comments.  Hugs, Yvonne
