House of Haunts Swap Card

This is another card I just found in my drafts file.. but never loaded it onto my blog.. Don't know why... (lost in cyber space). One of the reasons might have been because I was thinking I was going to enter it into a contest but I never did.. or I did and it did not win.. :( But now it is here on my blog and it is one of my Favorites. I am so glad I found it. Thank goodness I keep all my old Catalogs so I could find the name of the Designer series paper: Ghostly Greetings. I punched out a little skull from the paper to make the brad, using the build a brad.

Jolliest Time of the Year Card

I made two versions of this card... one with santa head on the card front and the other with it layered on top of the santa to give it dimension.. it looks cute both ways... unless you agree with Terry that its just a decapitated santa head.. I think it looks cute as an accent on the bottom of the card.... so its not a snowflake... its a head... *LOL*

Bloomin' Beautiful Card

I was so glad to see that this set made it into the Catalog. I have seen so many great things made with this set. I used the Canvas BG on this card... first I inked it with Sahara sand and then took the Chocolate chip ink pad and rubbed it around the edges to give it an older look and I stamped it a few times on the front of the card. I used the Chocolate chip marker to put the Love on the bee. I used a lot of Dimensionals to make it pop up high. Thanks for looking friends!

House of Haunts brag book and cards

I thought that I would make something different for my brag-book pages, by heat embossing the Designer Paper. I think heat embossing for brag-book pages gives it a lasting look and its not like glitter that gets onto other things. (including your hair and face so no looking like a pixie for me..) *LOL*

This is a fun set to work with. I made a pair of brag-book pages that turned out super cute.... that is my son Calvin on Halloween. I used the same pieces and made it into a 3x6 card, so that someone at a stamp camp or other events can have a choice to make a brag-book or a card... their choice. :)

The 3x6 Card

This view is to show you that some of the pieces are on the inside of the card. Using the kiwi kiss inside is great so you don't have to use a white gel pen on the inside.

Page 2 of the 6x6.. super cute picture of my son Levi, he has a nice smile.

The 3x6 card from page 2.

This was so much fun and both turned out so cute that I am going to do this from now on. In fact I have a few kits from other 6x6's that I have done that I am going to make into cards.... yeah yeah... fun fun... thanks for looking friends
