Masking for Halloween!!!

Our Creative Corner is masking for Halloween! This is our challenge this week: to make a project featuring Halloween theme and using Masking Technique. The card that I created not only uses the Masking Technique but also the Bleaching Technique. 

First I embossed the image with the witch with black embossing powder (109133), bleached out the moon and painted with yellow marker. Then I masked that image and stamped the graveyard and the fences. To stamp all those images I used the same stamp set Toxic Treats (W 127898 C 127901). I distressed the edges and rolled in the corner. Hope you like it! Boo!

Our talented Marcy is the host for this week's challenge. The Design Team has created wonderful projects to get you in the spooky mood of Halloween. Stop by the OCC blog to check them out. 
Get inspired and I hope to see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

BOO!!! It's Time for Mashup #82

Halloween is around the corner!! This week's challenge at the Friday Mashup is to feature a witch and/or use the Bleaching Technique in some part of your project. The Design Team has come up with wonderful ideas to get you in the spooky mood of Halloween. Stop by the Friday Mashup blog to check that out!

To create this card I first applied the Bleaching Technique on the witch image. You can see the tutorial here. Then using the same stamp set Toxic Treats ( W 127898 C 127901) I stamped the fence in the background with Basic Gray ink ( (109120), and embossed the grave and the sentiment with Tangerine Tango embossing powder (123106). I used the Labels Collection Framelits (125598) to cut out the image with the witch. The DSP is Howlstooth & Scaringbone (126906). Then I put all the elements together.
Hope you like it!

Clean and Simple Kitchen

After almost two weeks out of the country, more specifically in Argentina visiting friends and relatives, I am back in business. I have to admit that I had the most wonderful time with my loved ones.

As you could see I haven't posted anything for that period of time. I know that you are probably wondering why I didn't schedule some posts so my blog could have some activity while I was gone, but to be honest I am always behind with everything. I try to organize myself and do things ahead of time but for one reason or another something comes up and I end up running behind again. I've been trying to do it in an organized way, but I always have things that come up at the last minute that change my plans.  I don't know if it is because I am a multi-task person, lack of organization or what, but I had to learn and accept that for me things are like that, and I have to go with the flow. Sometimes there are certain situations that I consider out of my hands but at the last moment everything falls into place like magic. So after this apology for being absent for almost two weeks, I want to encourage you to create a card or project for Our Creative Corner this week.

 This week our talented Meihsia is the host  at OCC. You have to create a clean and simple card or project with something you would see in the kitchen. Pretty simple ha! Visit  Our Creative Corner blog to see all the wonderful creations the design team has created to inspire you!! Hope to see all of you at the gallery!

I created this card using the Perfectly Preserved stamp set ( W 126690 C 126692), and the corresponding Framelits Dies Cannery Set (127822). The DSP is Orchard Harvest (126895), the button is from Natural Designer Buttons (127554) and the twine is Cherry Cobbler (123125).

Happy stamping! Have a wonderful weekend!
