ATC crow

The night winds howled and the moon cast an eerie glow. This spooky ATC card was made with one of Lindsay’s new releases. The stamp is the Crow ATC and I think it is so spooky and adds just the right touch to a Halloween themed card.  This stamp is part of her new Creepy Crow Collection. To make this ATC I just printed the stamp on to some white card stock and cut out the image with my exacto knife. I then colored the image with black and brown paint to get my desired dark look and after that I cut out a piece of patterned paper to go behind the moon.

I then took a blank ATC card and wrapped it with some colored ribbon until I was happy with the color combinations then I just applied some adhesive to my stamped image and adhered it on top of the  layers of ribbon. I love the colors of the ribbon behind the image I think it sets off the stamp just right. I couldn’t go with just black and orange  becasue you know how I love to mix all colors together.

Shall we meet for Coffee?

You will not believe the number of cool new stamps that Lindsay has designed. I totally love the coffee themed stamps…they are so much fun!

For my card this week I used a sketch from Inspiration Card Sketches (ICS) where by the way Lindsay is the sponsor this weeek for the prize. Make sure to check out ICS and enter your card, you never know you might be the lucky winner of some wonderful stamps!

It was fun trying to incorporate my ideas to the design of the sketch. For this card I used the polka dot coffee mug stamp along with the little sugar bowl from the coffee border stamp and last but not least the word stamp that coordinates with the set. ” How have you bean? ” so clever! :)


I printed out the images then colored them in using a combination of Prisma markers and Bic permanent markers. I printed the phrase on a piece of Cosmo Cricket paper and distressed the edges by rolling them. I then cut a small slit and inserted the navy blue piece of paper that has a circle punched out of it to give it some fun and of course you know how I love dimension so I had to make the cup POP! and for a small finishing touch I cut out the small sugar bowl that comes with the coffee jitters border stamp and Voila! a cute fun card to give to a friend. I urge you to visit Lindsay’s shop and definitely her blog because she is giving away a ton of great freebies that you don’t want to miss!
