Hello Whimsy fans - Kimberly Wiener here sharing the Spooky October 31 Nights of Halloween Celebration 

I had such an amazingly FUN time playing with these stamps. NOT kidding, these lil' Candy Corn Dress Up Stamps... OMG... I fell for these!.....HARD! 
The NEW Slimline Postage Die was amazing as a backdrop for the six sweeties all ready for supreme spookiness!













To make this tall slim "Trick or Treat" card:
 Prepare white card base of 4.25 x 8.5 and an inner panel of 3.75 x 7.5. Sponge the inner card panel with water reactive inks blending two colors darkest to light. Stamp and cut Candy Corn Dress Up images and sentiment.  Die cut Slimline Postage Die in black card stock.  Adhere card panel and die cut to card. Color and adhere images and sentiment.  Add stars using a white gel pen and the Star Galaxy Stencil for the final touch!

Card Challenges

 
 
 
 Card Challenges!
 
 
Hello Wonderful Crafty Peeps!
This post is because I have a hard time finding card challenges.
I used to have a handy list on my sidebar, however when I went for a more clean and streamlined blogger template, it all disappeared.
 
Any hey, I have been joining in challenge for years, so if it is difficult for me, then I assure you , it may be hard for others out there.
 
There is a card challenge blog site that has volunteers keeping up with all of the current challenges!  No need to look it up to see...alas, yet again, another challenge has closed.
Argggh..Am I right?!
 
I have even created specifically for a challenge to join in the fun, inspiration and comraderie only to see that it was closed... Oh Darn!
 
I also have tried "googling"  Cards for Days, and it just may be my browser, but I have been unsuccessful.  So I was in total JOY when I saw awhile back that they were having a volunteer call in the FB DT Calls postings that linked back to their incredible blog.  So please, if you are into challenges, support this blog, add to yours or just see what they are up to!
 
Here is their page graphic as well as link:

Polka Dot Orchard - National Coffee Day Blog Hop!

Image may contain: text




Fabulous FALL creations are
 found at Polka Dot Orchard at Etsy.

I adore this sweet mini pumpkin coffee wreath.
I added light green leaves 
and dashes of lavender.
A slight minimal spring look to add to the early fall colors!
I Love. Love. LOVE Pumpkin.
So does my husband!
FACT: My wedding cake was cupcakes, including pumpkin, and the bride and groom cake was a mini pumpkin cake!
We just celebrated our 11th year anniversary
August 30th.  I have a few
flashback wedding pics below.




I hope you check out all the
 sweet images there!

We also Re-created the images of the fun cake topper I found.
The topper is of the Bride Dragging the Groom!
Oh, and I made the Cupcake Stand. We had Lemon, Red Velvet, Lavender, Chocolate, and Pumpkin cupcakes!
Cupcakes were from Cupcake Royale our favorite!

Spectember - Crazy for Colour!


Image may contain: text


Hello Spectember Friends and Fans!  
I hope that you are joining
 in the prompts, prizes & fun!

Todays prompt is "Crazy for Color !"
This image from Studio Katia and lends itself
PERFECTLY for crazy color!
 



Since this is a very large stamp image, I start by stamping the image using a stamp placement tool for best coverage.  By selecting portions the card by color groupings I color section by section with my chosen colors starting with the darkest colors first, blending in the lightest, and then overall coverage with the mid tones. Fussy cut around the image and trim to fit a 5x5 card base.  Affix image to card base. Add embossed sentiment and sequins or embellishments as desired.

Gather these Tri-Blend Colors Together: Purple, Blue Turquoise, Orange, Bright Pink, Red, Citrus, Coral, Jade Green, True Blue


Hydrangea:Color centers of each individual Hydrangea segment with a circle of the Dark Purple. Color half of blooms with lightest purple tone and mid tone of Purple. Color all of the blooms wtth lightest Blue Turquoise, very center darkest Orange.  
 
Red Blooms: Color edges in Dark Red stripes, fill in entire blooms with the lightest Bright Pink tone. Blend in darkest edges with lightest of the Red. Fill entire blooms with darkest Bright Pink. Outline and accentuate all lines with darkest tone of the Hydrangea.

Tulips: Color all areas in darkest tone of Citrus.  On all edges and inner lines color with darkest Orange. Cover entire bloom with mid tone Coral.  Blend lightest Orange over the darkest Orange into the main Coral until blended.  Add darkest Red at very inner edges and blend with mid tone orange until blended. Repeating as necessary until you are satisfied with the blended look.

Mini Flowers: Color little florals with light Citrus and dot with darkest Orange tone and darkest Red tone.

Leaves: Color with Darkest Jade Green in half of leaves or inner body of leaves.  Color over enire leaves with lightest Jade tone. Cover and blend Jade colors with lightest Blue Turquoise. Repeating as necessary until you are satisfied with the blended look.

Background: Fill in with darkest tone of True Blue.
