Create A Pumpkin Card Without Pumpkin Stamps

Hi Crafty Card Gallery Friends! Thia here from Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station with my first WATERFALL card featuring pumpkins! Funny thing is, the stamps I used to create these pumpkins came from 4 different stamp sets! 

When I heard we were to create something with pumpkins, I wanted to be creative with mine but didn’t know how. Then as I was looking through other pumpkin cards, I thought of what I wanted to do! (I was seriously at a no mojo moment too, when this idea hit me!) I had the perfect stamps to create unique jack-O-lanterns at my fingertips! 
Using an oval stamp set, I stamped my ovals onto punched ovals. Then stamped a cute Peachy Keen Pumpkin Face. The stem is the trunk of a Christmas tree, and the leaves are holly leaves. Creative, don’t you agree? 


Happy Retirement Card

Hi Crafty Card Gallery followers!
Thia here from Blue Moon Creation with a card I created to share with YOU!
This card was created using duct tape. I wrapped tape in a zig zag pattern and then inked it with a variety of colors (tear drop ink pads). Then stamped it onto white Neenah cardstock. Pretty neat, right?
I used some twine and created a flower from scraps that I had laying around.
For the face of the flower, I used a mini bottle cap and some Spiced Sunshine Stamps.
The sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps Hillbilly Holler Set 3, which I believe is currently on sale.
So…I’m sure you all are wondering if my nails are really multi colored right now, since the color of our nails is this month’s inspiration for creating a card. They aren’t. I don’t wear nail polish these days. So, I decided to get colorful, since my nails are lacking in color!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at my blogs too!

A Little Birdie Told Me…

Hi everyone!!! Spring is almost here!!! Days are getting longer and a little bit warmer which has got me in the mood to create something fun  and springy. 🙂 I have a card I created for this month challenge which is something  birthday related.
I stared with cutting a card base using the Sizzix Card, Scallop #3 die from Moss Green Glitter Cardstock. Next I gathered up my card stock scraps, two stickers from the Robin’s Nest: Spring Sticker and White Dew Drop  to use on this adorable card. The little birdie is from the Little Spring Birdies college sheet from Altered Pages. I fussy cut one of the bird out and added a sequin, Crystal Stickles and a little party hat that I cut from my scraps. The birthday is sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up Simple Sayings II set. 

Isn’t the little birdie just festive???

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!


Thinking Outside The Box

Hi everybody! Thia here from Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station with my post for this month based on the theme LOVE. 

Normally it’s all about cards, but this time I was thinking outside the box…well, I was actually thinking box!
I picked up one of those decorative Chinese food boxes from my local Michaels and decided to use my new Peachy Keen and Get Inky Stamps with it. (Did ya know Get Inky is now being manufactured by Peachy Keen? Yup! That great PEACHY POLYMER that we all love I get to put my label on! Awesome, right?) So, with the latest stamp sets from both companies, I decorated this box.
I hope this inspires you with your card crafting or helps you think outside the box when need be!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the week!
