My stamp, Copic & Spellbinder die storage

Hi everyone. I want to share with you how I store my stamps as well as my Copic Markers and my Spellbinders dies. One of my YouTube subscribers had asked me how I store my Lawn Fawn stamps & my copic markers, so I thought I would do a video on them. I do have to apologize for the this video being so long but I wanted to make sure that covered everything. At the end of the video there is a message about up coming plans.
I store my dies and stamps in the EZ Binder 3 Ring Storage Full Size. I am using the EZ Mount Stamp Storage Panels as well as Clear Clingmount Storage Cards. For my spellbinders dies I am using some 8.5 x 11 chipboard and some magnet sheets that I ran through my  Xyron 9" Creation Station.

Happy Crafting

Halloween Card #4

Thanks for joining me on my 4th Halloween card. This may be it for my Halloween card series. I am hoping to get one more card done before I leave for vacations but not 100% sure if I will.
This was a lot of fun to make I just love this image. This is Vampy Victoria from C.C. Designs & I used Memento Tuxedo black ink to stamp her on to copic paper. I used E000, E00 & E2 for her skin and R11 &R20 for her mouth. I Used E21, E23,& E25 for her hair with just a touch of E19 for a little more of a red hair look. Next I used B32 for her eyes. I then used my N2, N4, N6 & N8 for the top of her cape, her skirt and shoes. Took my R29, R35, & R39 for her cape. 
The orange, black & poka dot paper is from the Doodlebug 6x6 Halloween Parade paper pack as well as the Halloween Stars. The Bat patteren paper is from DCWV The Spooky time Matstack. Using my Spellbinders Standard Cricles Die to cut out the big circle & my EK Success punch to cut out the small ones.  I used Amy R's Stamps Witch-ful thinking as my outside and inside sentaments using tuxedo black ink and Brilliance Starlite Silver ink.  I used the stars to cover up a couple of my oops.
 Here I used my EK Success Bat punch as well as my Studio G Tiny Bat punch to add just a few more bats to this. I also used a $1 stamp from Michaels with Tangelo ink before glueing down the punched out bats.
This is just a better view of all the bats. 
I used a Wink of Stella Black Glitter pen on her cape, shirt and boots. This is what it looked like. 
I used foam dots to pop her up. I think this is just a fun card for anyone.
Thanks for hopping over and checking out my blog. Remember you can subscribe to this & follow me on my facebook page as well.
I look forward to my Christmas card series and hope you will join me for my next card.

My last Halloween haul.

Hello everyone I wanted to share my last Halloween haul with you before I finish my Halloween Card series. I am cutting it short because I am going to Las Vegas with my hubby for our 10 year anniversary. I am hoping to get 2 cards done (I finished one last night so just hoping to get one more in).
I will post links to the sites that I bought everything at but wanted to let you know that some of this stuff may no longer be available because I was on clearance.
I am looking forward to not only my trip (hubby has never been to Vegas) but also starting my Christmas card series. I am hoping to do a 25 days of Christmas cards, so I am going to be recording them in November but posting them December 1. this way I get them done but don't stress out about having to do any Christmas shopping or life just getting in the way. But between now and then I do plan to post videos of other cards but there is not going to be any kind of rhyme or reason to them just good crafty fun.
Thanks for everything and have a safe and Happy Halloween

Halloween Card #3

Hi everyone. I know it has been a while since my last Halloween video but I just was not feeling it after the last one. That kinda put me in a crafting funk but I was able to get some goodies and now the wheels are turning. We also we had our oldest birthday to get ready for which was lots of fun, our youngest even got dad to put on roller skates (which is a big deal since he has a bad knee) but we all had a lot of fun.
Anyways on to today's card. This is #3 in my Halloween card series  it turned out pretty cute too I think. I found the spider background stamp and the ink (Opalite- Cypress Frost) at Tuesday Morning. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to connect the stamp so it would look like it was a continues background. I used a stamp from stampendous   Spider Sam I think is what it is called (found it at Michaels in their clearance section) and used memento tuxedo black ink. I used N0, N2, N4 to color the spiders body (I did not want it to blend into the background) and N4, N6, N8, YR & YR07 for her hat. Then I took my YR02 &YR07 for the orange part of the candy corn and Y11 & Y13 for the Yellow part & then just took my white gel pen for the white.
I used orange opal ribbon that I got in the clearance section at Joann’s for just a little more orange pop. Taped that around the made a bow and stuck it down with a few glue dots. I used a happy Halloween stamp from Michaels $1 bin and cut it out, then colored the words with my YR07 so they would stand out more. I used some Doodlebug twine to attach her to the web then popped everything up on foam squares.

I used my Grand Calibur & Nested Candy Corn dies after using my glimmer mist (Sun Sisters for the yellow, Candy Corn for the orange & Dazzling Diamonds for the white.) & used a piece left over from the front and taped everything down on the inside. I left the inside blank one I had no sentiment for the inside & two because I think the lite colored candy corn would be a great place to write your own.  With the black background it just makes everything pop more too.
And that’s it for this card. I am hoping to get at least two more cards done here soon then I will be a small break for a card series ( I will work on other random card/projects) then I plan to start making Christmas cards but I wont be posting those videos until Dec. 1 as part of my 25 days of Christmas cards (not sure if I can get a card a day but it will be something like that).
