Happy Fall Y'all 2022 Kat Scrappiness Release!!!

 Happy Fall Y'all!!!  I am so happy to be sharing 4 projects I made using the NEW Kat Scrappiness Halloween/Thanksgiving 2022 Release. These stamps, and dies along with the paper pad was so fun to play with and get my crafty on... so lets go take a look what i made!!!


First up, using the Nesting Stitched Dome Dies, I made a frame to showcase my little turkey from the Gobble Gobble Stamp Set. He does not want to be chosen as the main course for dinner this year, so he is saying "don't lick me!" one of clever stamps included in this 4" x 6" stamp set. The background paper is from the Gobble Gobble 6" x 6" paper pad, and the bottom strip is from the 6" x 6" Lumber Yard paper pad, a smaller remake of the original slimline size that was released in 2021.


Moving into Haloween, I again used the Nesting Stitched Dome Dies, but this time chose to make a shaker card "can't resist". I used a piece of paper from the "Creepy and Kooky" 6" x 6" paper pad released last month as my background for the shaker. A cute little Boo-gy Ghost is peeking over the top from behind, and I used the new Uppercase Stitched Alphabet Dies to spell out trick or Treat. I cut 2 layers so that I would have a black shadow peeking out on the left side of my letters. This was so fun to put together. My shaker bits are Candy Corns, Halloween Dots and Halloween Confetti. 


For this Thanksgiving Card I used Alcohol inks and made some panels of photo paper. I then used the NEW Autumn Foliage Dies to make this fun card. We don't get the change of colors so much here in FL, so I have to make my own. The background panel was but with the NEW Nesting Deco Frame dies, and the inside panel cut from the same die using the 6" x 6" Lumberyard Paper Pad. The Happy Thanksgiving Die w/Shadow was cut out vellum and Kraft Shimmer Papper. and the "I am Gratefull For You" sentiment is from the NEW Simple Sentiments Stamp/Die set. 


This is a fun one, and I had my friend Courtney in mind when I made it. I used Silver Shimmer paper when cutting the NEW Spiderweb Background Die, and the New "Spooky Boo w/shadow". Hello friend is from the Simple Sentiments Stamp/Die set and the spiders are from the Creepy Crawly Die Set. A couple google dyes and this project was complete.

Halloween Fun with Syncopation Design

Howdy friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today with my cards ,ade using images and papers from Syncopation Design. Link to the Etsy Store... etsy.com/SyncopationDesign/listing/1295021135/bundle-o-spooky-season-digital

Of course i had to make a shaker first, I don't think I have missed a shaker on any releaes so far. This card just makes me happy and it is currently on its way to its new owner. I at least had to wait until it was officially Fall to send it. 



This second card, well for the last 6 months or so, I have found if I do not have my iced coffee first thing in the morning, I can not function, and Chase (my pup) will not leave my side, and within a couple hours a headache insues... So yes, Nightmare before Coffee rings true. 



Take a visit over to the Syncopation Designs Etsy shop, and get your Halloween Digitals today.

Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog September-October

 


Howdy friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my September inspiration post for the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog. 
To make this hard I used a Hero Arts City Die, this die is awesome as it cuts the house out, has a shadow for the back as well. This way I was able to have the windows highlighted in yellow. 
The Santa flying across the sky is a Sunny Studio's stamp and the sentiment is from Kat Scrappiness "Merry Critters". 

Hope you enjoyed my project and can't wait to see what you have made.

Hey there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and playing along with the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog July- August Challenge.

I have had this guy for at least 2 years, colored sitting in my box just waiting to be used. I used Ohuhu Alcohol Markers to color him and the enamel dots are from Kat Scrappiness.

Be Yourself... a new collection from Syncopation Designs

 hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my projects using the newest collection from Syncopation Designs. This collection is called "Be Yourself", and has all kinds of cute images and icons to where you can remind yourself to do just that. 


This first card is just perfect, as when I am not in a people mood, my pups and kitty are always there to cheer me up. I used stencils from MFT to ink blend the bottom of my panel with grass and sky, colored the critters with Copics and used pattern papers from the kit to put my card together. I do use an HP Deskjet that has rear loading and am able to print on Accent Opaque 80-100 and 120lb cardstock (white cardstock of choice) with no issue. 


If we are talking about me being myself, then  of course the crafty side has to shine. I hid it for so many years growing up not thinking at all I was any good. But though scrapbooking which led me to cardmaking I have found my crafty side again. This card pretty much says it all... Laptop, and craft supplies helped pull this card together. 

I hope you all enjoy this project, and take a stop over at Syncopation Designs to see the rest of the collection.
