Give Me The Candy...

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Good morning!!

I hope your Wednesday flies by and the weekend is here before you know it! (Unless of course you have to get something done before then. Then I hope it drags! LOL)

I have some really exciting news to share with you all today! I was asked by Tracey from Starving Artistamps to be her guest designer for this month!! :D Woohooo!! This is incredibly exciting for me because I have LOVED the DoodleFactory line ever since I laid eyes on the Creatures set. The characters just crack me up every time I see them! And a lot of the sentiments are so sarcastic, they make for great cards. So you'll be seeing a bunch of cards over the coming weeks with the kooky characters that is the DoodleFactory!!

If you're not laughing at this first card, something might be wrong with you! This is the new Costume Party set recently released and the characters in this set are so great for cards for the little trick or treaters in our families. The sentiment is from the a Halloween set that Starving Artistamps released last year and it works perfectly with this hairy little monster. In fact, all of the sentiments from those sets work so well with this new set! The candy bags stamped on the purple dp are accessories stamps from the set. I used this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch for this layout.

This next card is my favorite! How adorable are these two?!? They remind me of my daughter and her cousin in their Halloween outfits last year. So cute! I stamped them on some Strathmore Bristol Vellum and colored them with reinkers and an aquapainter. The paper is from a Recollections Halloween 8x8 stack from Michaels. The sentiment is actually from the Witch's Trio set (which can be bought separately). Loving that Martha Stewart rickety fence punch!!
Hope these made you laugh. :) Thanks for stopping by today!

These are such super-fun cards! Thanks so much for the link to the older Halloween set - I think you used the wicked sentiment recently and I went looking for it and couldn't find it on their site (operator error,I'm sure!!) What I am really saying is it's your fault I buy too many stamps! HA! JK! :-)Traci

DoodleFactory said...

oh wow, I'm so excited to see these. Tracey asked me to point out any designers I liked for possible guest slots and I mentioned I'd seen a lot of great stuff on your blog. She told me you were a fantastic customer and already on her radar!

Love the cards. Great papers and colors! I tried to get some stamping done with my halloween set last night but had a bit of an embossing disaster.

BIG Congrats on being a DF GD! I'm going to have to take advantage of that 10% off in your side bar. Both cards are so much fun and the papers are paired up perfectly. Gorgeous detailed coloring too.
