Shelly's Designs - TTT Challenge - Show us your Shape

I'm really excited today! This is my first post for Shelly's Images Design Team and if you haven't heard of her you must check out her store. She has the most detailed digital stamps that I have seen.
Check out her blog as well.
Anyways this week's challenge at Shelly's Images is "Show us your Shape!" Make your card or project a shape other than a square or rectangle. So here is my circle easel card using basic black paper for my base. I used the newest Graphic 45 Halloween Collection called 'Happy Haunting' for the rest of my papers. For most of my circles were cut out using Spellbinders 'Grand Scallop Circle exception for the smaller circles I used Spellbinders 'Lacey Circles'. I printed the image 'Full Moon Flight'  and you can find it here:
I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and cut it out using Spellbinders 'Lacey Circles'. I cut out tree branches using Memory Box die and used basic black paper. I added some Orange Fizz & Purple glitter by In The Making to the branches using 2 way glue pen. I then cut out grass die by Memory Box die using basic black & green from the Happy Haunting collection and place the black grass behind the green grass to give dimension. Then I cut out a fence using Memory box die using black paper and place it in front of the grass & tree branches. On the lower circle, I added a tag from the same collection along with some new Tim Holtz Tinsel Twine. I added some black roses from Prima Marketing 'Laraine Black Tie' and added some Very Berry & Orange Fizz Glitter by In The Making Enterprises on top of the flowers to add some bling! I also cut out some purple flourishes using purple glitter paper and Tim Holtz 'Elegant Flourish' die. Pin It Now!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Jackie this is a truly amazing project. I LOVE the details you added to the moon and the bat. It really "feels" spooky and scary. And all of the papers and elements work so wonderfully together. So much to see that I just sit and admire it. Thanks too for the very nice words about the Shelly's Images stamps. I am so happy that you enjoy them. And if your first project for Shelly's Images is any indication of what is to come then I can't wait. Thanks so much for this amazing project.

  7. This is STUNNING Jackie! I LOVE the scallop circle easel card - great idea! This is so detailed and fun...I would TOTALLY display it all year long - not just for Halloween...because bats are out in the summer...and they are just as scary buzzin around then as they are at Halloween - LOL!
