2 Cards Today!

WooHoo it's Friday! Yeah! And I have 2 cards to show today! The first is a Halloween card using Gingerbell the cat from The Greeting Farm and the Jack-o-Lantern head from the Spooktacular set (also from TGF!)

The Details:
Stamps: Gingerbell and Spooktacular - The Greeting Farm
Paper: American Crafts, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, PTI White
Cat: C5,C7,C9,R20,R22
Pumpkin: Y35,Y38,E08
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Dew Drop Brilliance Lightning Black (distressing on the fence)

My second card has a completely different feel and is for the first October Viva La Verve challenge. This was a sketch challenge with the twist of "make it shabby chic". That does not come naturally to me, so I hope this is acceptably shabby chic!

The Details:
Stamps: Wishing You, Because of You - Verve
Paper: Retired Baja Breeze paper pack, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Ink: Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo, Baja Breeze
Misc: Prima Flowers, Darice jewels, Martha Stewart border punch, Choc Chip Grosgrain ribbon

Thanks so much for visiting me today! I hope your day is wonderful!

Traci, awesome cards! The Verve one does look shabby chic- am liking the jewels!

My fave though is the Halloween one! Your coloring of the kitty is PERFECT! Love the scene- you're a genius!

I love how Gingerbell on the fence mimics the cat on the fence in the paper and you second cards is just so lovely.

Super cute cards, Traci! Love to see the radical difference between the two styles as well! I am running DANGEROUSLY low on my Baja breeze paper LOL...sob! Have a good weekend!

What a contrast but both are perfect in their own way!

The contrast in these two cards is proof that there is no style you can't master Traci! The shabby chic one is gorgeous and I love the creative scene you made with Gingerbell and little pumpkin head! :)

Two amazingly beautiful cards, and so different, you really are a master. Loving the Halloween card, that's so cute, love the pumpkin stack, and the paper you've chosen.

Truly beautiful work :)

I don't visit often enough do I. When I do I'm always so blown away with your gorgeous creations. These two are no different. I love the little (so not spooky :) ) Halloween card with that cute little kitten but my favorite is definitely the Wishing you card. I don't know if the style is Shabby Chic or not, I'm not much for giving styles a label, but I absolutely love it. VERY elegant and pretty!
