Halloween night is approaching! Here is a non traditional Halloween card I made using Starving Artistamps DoodleFactory Ghoulies. I chose to dress the lovely Mrs. Frankenstein in glowing red for her happy haunts.
Trace your chipboard on your fab G.C.D. paper and cut out.
Adhere your paper to your chipboard and using a sanding block or nail file distress your chipboard paper. This G.C.D. paper is perfect for distressing because it is a linen paper.
Another cool technique for chipboard is to paint directly onto your chipboard and while the paint is still wet, dip into glitter this is called sugaring. This is one of my favorite chipboard techniques.
G.C.D. is bursting with all different shapes and sizes of chipboard. There are so many ways to use this fun embellishment from painting, to distressing, to sugaring. I made a Halloween invitation along with a goodie box to be filled with treats along with a few tips and tricks to dress up your chipboard.
I want to put out a special thank you to my friend and business partner Kazan for substituting for me at 2S4Y this week. Swinging two weeks in a row isn't easy and I appreciate it VERY much, Thank you Kazan! We are moving into a new house this week so I am up to my ears in boxes, cleaning, painting, etc. Here is a card I made using Starving Artistamps, Juniper and Jupiter's Exterior Elements.
Orchids are one of my favorite blooms. I have them displayed all over my home, they are so striking and beautiful. Starving Artistamps has a new set out called Backlit Bloomsand it is breathtaking, here is the orchid stamp.

Fall is my favorite time of year, along with celebrating Halloween. The air is crisp and cool, the colors are vibrant and magnificent, it's that time to slip on comfy jeans and a sweater get comfortable and spend hours being creative!
When my daughter was little I used to start sewing her Halloween costume in August and finish just in time for the exciting night of trick or treating. Now that she is all grown and in high school she isn't in to being my cute bunny, piggy, bat or pumpkin. Although I miss dressing her all up I still love getting into the holiday spirit by decorating my home.
Here is an adorable Shabby Chic door knocker using G.C.D. products. I will be displaying this piece in my home this Halloween. Our facebook challenge was to use Black/Cream and one eye popping color, mine Orange to create our home decor.
