CHA IO DT Blog Hop Day 4


Winner Of Pack Your Bags Challenge

First we would like to congratulate the winner of our Pack Your Bags Challenge, Katie Bondroff.  Congratulations and happy shopping with the new images and dies!!

CHA DT Blog Hop Day 4

Welcome to the fourth day of our  CHA DT Blog Hop!  Our winner for Day 3 is Sandy at Simply Sandy Lee!  Congratulations, Sandy, happy shopping too.  You can check out our new Fall/Winter dies and stamps HERE, and the clear sets HERE.  Mitra has been introducing them at CHA at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, this week.

For my card today I chose Leigh Hannan's Ghost Espresso and the sentiment is Kalani Allred's Poisonous Potions (also available in clear set Have Broom Will Travel).  The background is Cover-A-Card Mesh Circles.  I created it by:

  1. Stamping the espresso twice on white cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa twice, painted the first one with Twinkling H2O's.
  2. Cut out the front of the matching plate, the label in the middle and the ghost "steam", painted, and mounted with 3D pop-dots.  Added Stickles Cinnamon as shown.  If you click on the photo you will see the label on the cup says, "Its Scary Good".  :-)
  3. Stamped sentiment on white cardstock inked with Rich Cocoa marker.  Cut out using die from Curved Matting Basics, inked some of the tiny circles of the Mesh Circles stamp with Memento Tangelo and stamped the corners of the diecut sentiment.  Mounted on brown cardstock and used Stickles Cinnamon for the 3 dots.
  4. Stamped white cardstock with CAC Mesh Circles and Memento Tangelo ink.  Used Curved Matting Basics largest die with it and for the matted brown and orange borders.
  5. Added some ribbon and corsage pin with a coffee bean bead from my stash.

Wonderful card, the Mesh stamp is more lovely than the picture on the IO site shows, think I might need it too...

Shirley - I LOVE THIS CARD AND THESE COLORS!! The background is a must have for me! Thanks for sharing your beautiful artwork! Hugs, Donna

Love the colors and layout of this card. Looks like I need to get the mesh circles cover-a-card :)

This is a 'scary good' card, Shirley! Love the colors that you used, and oh my goodness, I can almost smell that coffee! Great job, once again! Thanks for another day FULL of inspiration! Cannot wait to see what the final day brings!

What a fun card and you've coordinated everything so beautifully.

I've notived you don't have trouble with bows. They are beautiful. I love your orange card. As always do there is so much attention to detail. The design team certainly came up with some awesome work.

Oooh, I love the color scheme on this fun card. Great images!

Now this is just too darn cute!!! I love the background and how the bow matches the background. That "coffee" cup and steam are adorable! The sentiment is perfect! You ladies are so inspiring, I've already placed an order for some of the stamps! Just couldn't wait! :) Nancee

I love it!! Very cute!!

I'm loving all the new stamps! You are on a roll with your Halloween!

Hi Shirley,
i'm a latte kind of girl and this is my kind of "caustic cocktail!" Love all the great details on your card. Thanks for sharing!

LOVE the 'caustic cocktails"!!!!!

I am soooo very excited to be a blog hop winner! Now the hard part.....trying to decide which of the fabulous items I want!!!
Shirley, this is such a cute card with some great colors and adorable stamp.

Oh my!! I definitely would love to have that. I'll have to wait though. Money is so tight right now. But I love your card.

another beautiful card shirley! i love the fall colours and that it's more pretty than scary. :)

What a great card. I love that stamp and the background!

Great card! You are making some wonderful Halloween cards! Love the background stamp, it goes perfectly. And love the stickles too. Thanks for sharing.

Katie B.

Caustic drinks, hmmm, think I'll PASS on that one LOL! But the card is cute!

Your blogs are full of fun and inspiration and wonderful stamps.

Perfect color combos! You are creatively talented!

I love the Ghost Espresso stamp. Halloween is my favorite.

Fabulous Halloween design Shirley! The ghost steam is fun. Well I've managed another hop around the blogs to see the beautiful designs. Cheers, Shirley

Great card Very Pretty!!!Love the cup!!!Colors are great!!!

Love those Poisonous Potion stamps! Just got back from holidays and need to go back and view the previous days now.

Fantastic card Shirley! Love the ghost espresso stamp and your choice of colours for this card. Kudos!

Shirley your card is just to die for! Love the CAC mesh circles background and your fantastic coloring! The cinnamon stickles are the perfect finishing touch!

Love your monochromatic card. You are a master of design! TFS

Totally in love with this image and must have it for my haunted halloween teaparty

I too really like the background stamp! The Cup stamp could be used all year round if you just snip off the ghost head and leave the steam curls...I see coffee...or a cup of Coco...cup of tea...you could stamp one and cut out the >==< on the cup and turn it over so you have the shape and stamp a saying on it....oh the possibilities!

I had to catch up but I did go ahead and leave comments - great cards today.
