A Boo-tiful Halloween to You!

Hi! Today I'd like to share a Halloween card I made for Gecko Galz.

The witch image was sized and fussy cut. She's from the "Bootiful Halloween" collage sheet, as are the words which I cut and backed on black cardstock. The green background paper is called "Witch's Potion" from the Hocus Pocus paper pack. The black paper is from the Arsenic and Lace paper pack. The trims, flowers and orange mulberry paper are from my stash.

We have a new theme at Tag Tuesday - Autumn/Halloween. I made a tag for each, which I'm sharing below.

The background of this autumn tag was made with spray inks. I stamped large leaves and then layered on a bird die cut and flowers from my stash. A piece of ribbon with the words "Autumn Splendor" was stapled onto the tag with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Finally, ribbon was tied into a bow at the top.

The second tag was made using Tim Holtz Halloween paper for the background. I stamped some random dots with purple ink onto the background. I also stamped the small gravestones across the bottom of the tag. Next I layered on a Bingo card die cut, 2 doilies and a skeleton die cut, pop dotting the skeleton. A piece of ribbon was added to the top along with the eye die cut. (All die cuts are from Tim Holtz).

Thanks for stopping by!

Bump in the Night

A new month and a new challenge at Gecko Galz. The theme is "Bump in the Night". Here is my spooky project!

I painted a Tim Holtz frame with black acrylic paint and layered it over paper from the Dark Arts collage sheet. The crow was sized and printed, then pop dotted over the original image. The person is from the Jeepers Creepers collage sheet. I added lace, a moon charm, flair button and Tim Holtz skeleton charm from my stash.

We hope you will join in the challenge - click here for all the details.

Fabulous Fall

Today I am sharing my Gecko Galz projects for September. First up is a tag, which was sprayed with Tattered Angels ink sprays. The ear of corn image is from the "Harvest Time" collage sheet by Gecko Galz. The turkey is from the "Thankful for Fall" Jewel It sheet. The brown leaves are die cut from Gecko Galz paper. The rest of the items are from my stash.

Next up is a Thanksgiving card, using Gecko Galz papers from the Autumn Colors pack and the Gypsy Market papers. I cut the paper into 1.5" squares and attached them to a card base. The image is from the "Thanksgiving Memories" collage sheet. Final touches were a flower with a button center and the word Thankful which was cut from the "Thankful for Fall" Jewel It sheet.

My final project is a pumpkin card. The pumpkin was die cut with the "Montegue" paper (from the Star Crossed paper pack). The background paper is from the "Autumn Harvest" paper pack and the large leaf is the "Thanksgiving" paper (from the Mayflower paper pack) The small leaves were punched out of paper scraps from my stash. The word sticker is also from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today! Check out all the fabulous fall collage sheets and paper packs at Gecko Galz.

Eiffel Tower

The Paris theme is on at Tag Tuesday for another week. Once again, I used the Eiffel Tower on my tag. I cut a large tag from free paper received in a Stampington publication, which had the image on it. I also added a large die cut heart, bit of lace and a blue rose. The word love was die cut in blue.

Thanks for stopping by!
