We Three Ghosts

Hello!  How is everyone on this lovely Halloween? I just love this holiday! To celebrate the day, our challenge for this week at BBTB2 was to use one of the ghost cuts from the Paper Dolls cartridge. I created this "We Three Ghosts" banner. I cut the ghost on various white patterned papers, fit to page. I then cut out the eyes from brown cardstock. I backed the eyes with blue cardstock and the mouth with melon cardstock. I inked the edges with brown ink and outlined the ghosts with a brown Sharpie. I attached a Halloween bowtie to each one and spelled out "we three ghosts" with acrylic letters. I punched a hole in the hands and strung a green satin ribbon. This ghostie was so darn cute, I can imagine so many ways to embellish him! Go see the other designer's creations at BBTB2!  HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Vintage Hats

This is a card I made using a Gecko Galz digi image of vintage hats. I created a card base and covered it with vintage patterned paper. I colored the hats with markers and ink pads then mounted it to Gecko Galz Sonnet background paper. I cut strips of the script patterned paper and attached them to the card overlapping the digi image. I also added the script to the top of the card and vertically to left side of the card. I created rosettes from small paper flowers and attached them to the card. I Stickled the rose in the patterned paper and the flowers on the hats.

Miles of Smiles,


Sing...sing a song...make it simple...to last your whole life long. Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear....sing...sing a song. Here is another Gecko Galz project using the frog image and the sheet music background paper. I added the images to a dark green cardstock base, and added adhesive letters to spell "sing".  I topped it off with flower and leaf beads, with red Stickles centers.

Here's a Gecko Galz design team creation I recently made and am now finally getting around to posting.  I started with a black card base and added a strip of pink chandelier paper to the bottom. I fanned out the 3 Gecko Galz collage images and pop dotted the top image. I added black and white ribbon below the images and created a rosette from the same ribbon, stapling it to the card. Finally I topped it off with a strip of rhinestones.  Gotta have some bling on a fashionista card!
