Beautiful cards Melis! I love the video, it's so much fun to watch you working, love it!!


You're card was soooo much cuter than that boring old store bought card! Really enjoyed this idea and plan to hit the store this afternoon.


CUTE, Melissa!!!

LOVED the video!! =) So glad I came to check out your blog today too!! All the other cards you made are so CUTE!! Love all the different stamped backgrounds and images!! THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)


Loved your video and all of your cards. Your voice is just as cute as you are. I'm sure if I'd want to be your friend if we lived close and I knew who you were in real life. :) Your work is beautiful and amazing always. Thanks for sharing!

Good idea to actually buy the inspiration, I usually see a card and try to remember it but forget it by the time I'm done with my checkout and drive home!!!!!!! Beautiful mix of cards, love the bright Halloween colors!

Thank you for your tutorial! You made my day! I've been working 11h two days in a row, and I was really tired. What a treat to have a Melissa tutorial waiting for me! I can't get enough of your tutorials! I love to see what you make, and how you think about what will work as a good design! God bless you! Hugs from Elisabeth!


Melissa, I always look forward to seeing your beautiful creations! These cards are fabulous! Thank you for sharing the wonderful video. AND what a clever idea, finding inspiration in the card aisle. I'll definitely have to play along. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Melissa!
OMG! Your projects always inspire me...I love the way you create and embellish! You spider card is so super makes me smile when I look at it :)
I've been trying to learn more about how to color with my Copic markers...I really appreciate that you showed how you color w/Copics in your video tutorial. You mentioned outlining with the Putty and Warm Gray colors...I think that technique looks fabulous on the image! Which Warm Gray color did you use in the video? It looked like it was one of the lighter shades (W0 or W1) but I wanted to certain before I try your technique. Thank you...have a WONDERFUL Day! :)

Goodness your video was so great today, Melissa! That spider card is just the sweetest, most charming thing. Love the felt BOO and her jaunty hat! And I colored today with my W1 Copic marker...thanks so much for your coloring tips! I don't care if you have ever had a the look you achieve when you use them!!

Hi Melissa! Your video was wonderful, I can't wait for more!! You sure are special! Thanks for everything you do! Your cards are awesome!


what an awesome video and project! and that is saying something because i am SO scared of spiders i don't even want to see the ones with smiley faces. i was hoping you could share which warm grey copic you used for distressing? what a neat technique. i hope to see more of your videos in the future! :) thanks!


Hello there! Can you tell me the maker of the halloween tag in your witches brew kit? BTW - your cards are absolutely beautiful.

Thank you :)
