Hello crafty friends,

Today I'm up on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and YouTube channel with two easy birthday cards.  If you're like me you always have a need for birthday cards and it seems to be the type I'm always running out of.  When you don't have a lot of time to create, dies are wonderful for creating quick cards.

Fall pumpkins card - Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hello crafty friends,

Pumpkins are to me one of the biggest signs of fall.  So many pumpkin flavored items, such as pumpkin spiced latte and pumpkin pie are just a couple of things that signify the season and coming holidays.

Haunted Castle with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hello crafty friends,

Today I have a fun Halloween themed card to share with you.  I used a simple watercoloring technique to get this loose, ethereal feeling castle in the background and created a short video to share how I did it.  It makes coloring a little less stressful when you are not going for a precise look and can just enjoy the process.  I learned this technique from Bonnie Krebs with Art Impressions and knew it would be perfect to try out on this castle stamp.
