Halloween Cards Too Cute To Spook with Little Blue Button Stamps

I don't make to many Halloween cards, but this year it was hard not to, because Miss Olga,  designed such cute images you just had to.   She even designed such beautiful papers it was just to easy to make quick cards.  Now I just have to figure out who I am going to send cards to.  

First card was a freebee this month and the first "guy" Olga has designed.  This Vampire is just so quick and easy to color,   I just loved him up against these lovely soft papers.  The bats were just perfect!  Colored him with my copics, using grey,  I used my blender marker to try to give his face a "whitish" marble like look,  can't really tell from the picture or video but I like the way it looks in person .   It is a standard A2 size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in card.   I used the sentiments from the Halloween sentiments Olga came out with this month also,  I print my sentiments out on white paper and then use my copic to color them.  Did some layering on the inside to and it makes the perfect card!

 My next card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 in square and DCWV papers,  with this great little mouse image.  She is just to cute to spook!  I just think she is ready to hit the road.   I just loved this sentiment and actually picked it first and then found the papers to match.   I just got this bow die and had to try it out so cut multiple layers of tulle to make this bow,  you can see better in the video.  Colored this little lady with my copics of course,  loved all this sentiments that come on the sheet such a great variety.

Couple Birthday Cards Using Little Blue Button

The new images this month from Little Blue Button are just beyond cute and very versatile.   You can dress them up for Halloween or do what I did and use them for Birthday cards.  I hope you will visit http://digitaldesignsby.blogspot.com/  and http://lbbstamps.com/

Up first is a card I made for my mom.  My mom's birthday is in October and I don't usually do a halloween theme, but I just loved the new digi papers Olga came out with and used them to paper piece this cute little image.  The little baby in the ghost costume was so cute I had to include him also.  I love the soft oranges , so I colored some white bling orange with my copics.  The orange felt flower was a gift and I added some yellow loops for color.  The card was 6 x 6 with some purple velum.   To totally accent and help pop the card is the great Font in this Birthday Sentiment available on the Little Blue Button Site.  Olga has alot more than just images.
 Here is a video with some more close up description of the card.
Next is this Georgeous little Princess Image.   I totally did up this Pretty in Pink card for a new friend in a birthday card group for next month.  If she is watching this video she might know who she is, hehe.  I loved practiicing some coloring with shading in his dress.  Still trying to get the fold thing down, but do live the layers of hair, it really lets you get different shades in there.  Used some new trims, flowers, and clay butterfly my friend Teresa gave me last month.  And again a GREAT BIRTHDAY sentiment from Olga.  You get so many great sentiments on this one sheet to print over and over again.   I have printed in white and then used my copics to color also, so you can have any color you want without wasting paper.  

Here is the video of this card.
Thanks for checking out my cards,  I hope you will check out these great images!!!!!!!
