October Cloud9 Blog Hop

Hello, hello!

I am so happy that it is time for another Cloud9 Blog Hop!

This month we are welcoming the fabulous Kim Singdahlsen as our Guest Designer. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us this month.

Suzanne always picks the best inspiration photos, and this month's is just so fun! A perfect October photo:

This is what I was inspired to create.

This might sound a little crazy, but I never thought to turn the Label Layers 4 on end like this - I always visualize this image oriented horizontally. I was flipping through my stamp sets looking for something to mirror the door shape in the picture, and thought I'd try turning this one vertical. I like it! And it was sized perfectly for the sentiment from A Pocketful: Halloween.

Be sure to swing on over to the Cloud9 Blog to check out the rest of the Inspiration Teams' creations!

I hope you'll join us by linking up your project over on the Cloud9 Blog. In addition to the opportunity to join us as a Guest Member of the Inspiration Team, you could also win some Wplus9 loot!

I can't wait to see what you create this month! Take care!

  1. What a perfect combo of stamps! I love how well they work together!

  2. The texture and touch of spritzing on this are awesome Anya!

  3. I like it too...
    that label is perfect! :)
    Such a gorgeous card...
    but they always are! :)
    I seriously stalk you for ideas...
    you are SO incredibly creative...
    you make it so easy for me not to have to "think" and just "do"! *giggle*
    And got my goodies...
    gonna play tonight! :)
    Christmas stamping...
    while watching Poltergeist...
    what a combo! :)

  4. Fabulous card, Anya! I love how you used the chevron with a bit of spritzing. And Label Layers 4 is a great frame from that cute sentiment.

  5. Why don't I ever think to flip the Label Layers stamp/die in that direction? I love what you did with it here!

  6. You never disappoint, Anya! The label looks fantastic in the other direction, and I love the misting on the background with the subtle chevron embossing. Such a cute design!

  7. Anya! This is ABSOULTELY FANTASTIC! Wow! You've really captured the image, and I love that you have just the right amount of misting. Beautiful!

  8. I love this Anya - the embossed chevrons with the speckles and the big pumpkins and sweet spider - perfect colors and really gets me thinking of fall and Halloween! Oooh .. and that strip of washi.. perfect!

  9. What a great card Anya! I love the label on its side (I need to try that), and the adorable little spider!
