Release After Party Day 2

Hello crafty friends,

Christine here!
It's my pleasure to  bring you more inspiration using the October release stamps. Just like Anna told you  yesterday the international girls celebrate a fabulous release-after-party with you.

I have five cards to share with you today:

I instantly fell in love with Origami Map! It screams for watercolor, but I wanted to challenge my self not to use a emboss-resist technique! So this map ist mostly grey and twi countries/sport are colored in aqua. One got a pin-needle, the other one a heart. Mapping can be so much fun!

 Living in Germany we don't really celebrate thanksgiving or Halloween, so I don't have a lot of  pumpkins in my stamp collection. This one is pretty cool with it's super bold lines. It's from the Be Full set.

The next card is VERY graphic. I used the plate from My plate is full to draw attention to the sentiment and used forks, knifes and spoons in light colors to have a nice background.

As I said - thanksgiving isn't popular over here ;) So I used the turkey for a Good luck/Hello card using some washi with sentiments and just let the turkey from Turkey Talk gobble ;) Isn't he cute?

 Next up maybe my favorite card. I used the skull from Creepy Cute (a set beyond cuteness!!!) with some spiders and Creepy Cute Shadows and Sentiments. There is a bow in that set, but I created another bow made of bones. (Maybe that's hard to see). I just puffy heart love the bad to the bone sentiment!

Another card that's more cute than creepy is this one: a CAS one layer card using the bat from Creepy Cute.

Hope you enjoyed this little inspiration-parade. If you haven't ordered your stamps so far - you should - they're adorable!

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to check this post!
