It's Mini Monday!

*********GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED - THANK YOU!************

Good morning, all!

I had the pleasure once again to be asked by Jennifer McGuire at Hero Arts to do a little feature over on Hero's blog for their "Mini" Week! Today is Mini Monday and the feature is Mini Cards. For my part, I did a little 5" x 4" card using BasicGrey's awesome 6x6 pad in Ambrosia along with a few Halloween themed stamps from Hero! It was so much fun! And for those of you that haven't tried them yet, let me just enable you with these fun 6x6 pads - they are absolutely perfect for card makers! Not only are they already pre-cut to 6", but they are the full sized designs just shrunk to miniature! Awesome!

Here's how it came together:

First I used pigment ink to stamp onto the orange (Citrus) paper with the spider web stamp from Hero's Owl-oween set. I then embossed with black embossing powder and once it was dry, colored the webs in with my white opaque pen. Next, I punched out the webs with a circle punch and mounted them onto a circle piece of chipboard the same size for a little added dimension. To get the "Happy Halloween" only from this Hero stamp, I created a little mask the covered the spider, then turned the stamp sideways. I only had to do it twice to completely span the length of the 5" width of the card. I finished up by cutting along the curve then adding an orange scalloped border with my deco scissors.
Supplies:
BasicGrey Ambrosia 6x6 pad (Pome, Fresh Squeezed, Citrus, Ebony, Rind)
Hero Arts Owl-oween Clear Design Stamps
Hero Arts Dots and Lines Clear Design Stamps
Hero Arts Spider Border
Other: Ranger Embossing Powder, Ranger's Inksentials (Big & Bossy) Pad, Rubber Stampede ink, Clearsnap (Colorbox) chalk ink, Uni-ball Signo pen, ribbon, Marvy Uchida circle punch


And just to enable you further, Hero is giving away some awesome stamps and goodies including an Ambrosia 6x6 pad on their blog, so click HERE to be entered to win that. AND...it gets better! I'm also giving away the awesome Owl-Oween stamps I used to make the above card along with a Sugared and Archaic 6x6 pad to get you started on your own cards! Simply leave me a comment telling me about your favorite fall activity and you'll be entered to win! I'll leave the comments open until Tuesday, October 28th at 11:59 p.m.

Happy Stamping!

favorite fall activity...
showing my girls how to make "house plans" with fallen leaves, your feet and imagination. We used to do this when I was a girl at St. Agnes in Memphis. All the leaves would fall all over the playground and we would drag our feet together creating a "wall" with the leaves. The walls became rooms and from there we created hallways and such.. a new spin on playing house with your girlfriends :)

Jennifer Love said...

Just love all the great activites this time of year. A favorite is one we do just before Halloween, we "ghost" our neighbors. We pick 3 neighbors to visit after dark. We leave a goodie bag, a ghost image to hand in the door/window, and a poem describing the "ghosting" tradition.

Then those neighbors in turn choose 3 more neighbors, that do not have the ghost image hanging in the door/window), to leave goodie bags for, and so on, and so on... until the whole neighborhood has been "ghosted"

My favorite fall activity is going apple picking and picking pumpkins from the local apple orchard/pumpkin patch. I have a lot of great memories (and have eaten many yummy apple pies!) from doing this every year.

Linda said...

Well, you asked, so I'll tell you......my favorite fall activity is going to Elk County, PA, to see the elk! They evidently were native to that area of PA years ago, but were hunted out, so Pennsylvania brought in a herd from Wyoming, or Yellowstone, or somewhere out west, and protected them for years until they could multiply. Now they are almost tame.....they walk around this little town there called Benizette like they own the place!! My 88-year old father, being a hunter, loves to go there in the fall and wander the roads to find them.
For me, it's just a nice family time to spend with my parents. I love crunching around in the fallen leaves in the woods there.

Sharon Holmesley said...

Nancy said...

Kelly,
I never win anything but I thought's I'd try anyway...would love a little 6x6 pad and some stamps. Fall activity??? I think putting away the shorts and t-shirts and getting out the jeans and sweaters. I look much better in fall clothes and there is a lot less ironing now that I'm not wearing as much cotton.
Thanks for the opportunity to play along.

I drink lots of iced tea all summer but look forward to the cooler nights when a warm drink of tea or cocoa tastes especially good. And fall time also means Pumpkin Spice Latte time!

We don't have 4 seasons here, but from the mails and photos that my friend Krista (from CA) sent, my fav fall activity would be having fun among the falling leaves, with loved ones.

My favorite fall activity is to take a walk in the morning while the air is still crisp and the leaves are starting to show off their colors. Darling card, too! Thanks for the chance to win some goodies.

My fav fall activity is just enjoying the scenery. We live in the mountains and the view into the valleys below is breathtaking! Love your card!

My favorite fall activity when I was a kid was raking the leaves and jumping in the piles; however, now that I have kids, we don't seem to ever live anywhere that will give us enough to jump in. No, my favorite thing to do is take the family to a pumpkin patch. The kids play all day then get to pick their own pumpkin, then they all sleep on the way home.
