Cow Emma

Today I wanted to show you my card with Cow Emma.. she looks just perfectly dressed up to go Trick or Treating!

The decoupaged pumpkins are also part of the cc-designs halloween stamps range.

I have used the same MME Bloom & Grow papers that Fran used below.. they are indeed fab for Halloween cards with their lush greens/oranges :)

The card is finished with some orange buttons from the Autumn leaves collection and I've tied some green floss to finish.

Thanks for looking and have a perfect day!

Pumpkin Pixie

How adorable is Pippi???
I just couldn't resist this little pixie, perfectly dressed for Trick or Treating :)

I have masked Pippi and stamped the CC-design Spooky Tree behind her to make a scene

BTW.. the sweeties are not for sale! lol

Hugs, Marlene x

trick or treat anyone?

I just couldn't resist these CC Design cuties and had to make some Halloween themed cards (so expect to see more!). For this one I've used 'clown trevor', 'cow emma' and the 'bench' and have stamped them using masking technique. The sentiments are from the various sentiment sets from CC Designs too - I love the fonts on these.
Think the MME bloom & grow papers work well for Autumn/Halloween cards as it has that fab orange colour in it. AND if you didn't fancy a full pack you can now get little 'part packs' for a £1!! perfect if you just wanted to try them or only wanted it for the odd card.

  • Stamps: Images & sentiments all CC Designs, Sugarplum range from found here
  • Colouring: Copics with bit of stardust pen over the pumpkins for sparkle
  • Paper: MME bloom & Grow 6x6 pack, brown cardstock from Dovecraft textured cardstock
  • Tools: Oval Petite scallop nesties, MS fence border punch, bat punch, Cuttlebug die for the sentiment
  • Others: ric rac ribbon, 'olive' flatbacked pearls

    Apple Emma

    I'm back with another card to show you :)
    This time I've used the gorgeously yummie Pique-Nique papers [Rose Moka collection]
    I love their bright bold colours and patterns!
    Cute Apple Emma is a new addition to the shop in the CC-design range.. she is just a joy to colour!
    Again I've made a different fold card.. quite simple.. all it is, is a 8cm square card in a 13.5cm square card, punch some holes to tie a Grosgrain ribbon bow through.
    On the inside I added some panels for a sentiment and message.
    Decorated the card with some flat backed pearls.. et voila, your card is done.
    Thanks for looking!
    Hugs, Marlene x

    Give us your opinions

    As a result of a customer's suggestions we have created a smaller 6x6 paper collection using our new Rose Moka range especially for card makers. At only £1.30 I love the idea of building up my paper stash cheaply and without waste.

    You can see the range here

    We would love to know everybody's views on this new move so please add your opinion as a comment to this post.

    In return we everybody who votes will be added to a draw to win the full pique-nique collection with lettering, which you can eye up here

    We will be drawing the winner on Sunday 20th September so i will keep this post at the top until then

    Good Luck

    Pick of the patch!

    Here's another cutie from the CC Designs available to pre-order now.

    I've used 7 different stamps on this. Just masked 'pumpkin Emma' before stamping the fence behind her. Then there's the sentiment from the 'Autumn sentiments', the 'pumpkins' at the front are on 3d foam and have added twinkling H20 for added shimmer. Then I've used the 'leaves & garland' on the strip running behind her and the little leaf under the sentiment. You can see them all here
    Love this 'Pumpkin Emma' as you could leave out the pumpkin in her cart and by adding other things in it, can be used for lots of other occasions too.

    more yummy stamps

    yeah, new CC Designs stamps are on their way and you can see them here. They can be pre-ordered from today so that you can be sure you won't miss out on your favourite.

    Here's one I made using cute Sugarplum Apple Emma. As you can see not all of them are just for Halloween and there are some fab background and sentiment sets in there too. I will be back tomorrow with another card.
