[Mami Doodles] Challenge #36 - Black & Orange Blog Hop

Hello everyone & happy Friday. It is a very exciting day here at Mami Doodles. We want to welcome the three *newbie* additions to our theme. They are ::drum roll:: Frances, Jenn & Pam. I have been spying up on their work and you will be in for a treat!

In honor of their joining we're doing a blog hop today, to make sure you will say hi to the NEWBIE Kids on the Block. If you hopped from newbie Pam's blog, then you're right on track. And to give you a little more incentive, Elisa is in a very generous mood. We have freebies & prizes to give away. Are you ready?

Freebie 1 

  • "Scary Mummy", but you need a password. Hint: it's scattered amongst all the DT blog. If you twist my arm, I might tell you *coughnewbiecough*

Freebie 2

  • Want to win 4 Christmas digis of your choice? We are drawing winners on *each* DT blog. That gives you TEN chances to win! All you have to do is tell me what kind of Christmas or other holiday must-have traditions you have.
Shall we get on with the challenge? The theme this week is Black & Orange, in honor of our upcoming Halloween. As mentioned above, I am showcasing Boo! Can you believe I didn't pull the Party Animals again? Don't worry, I was already thinking of ways to make the Black & Orange ;)

Stamps: (Boo!) Mami Doodles
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft, True Black; Pattern Paper - Damask Designs, Distress Dots) Papertrey Ink; (To Love & Cherish - Juliet) Imaginesce; (Black Orchid Dorota Vista) SEI
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin No. 5 - Chicken Feed) Ranger
Embellishments: (House of Three Soiree Twine) Pink Paislee; (Vintage Buttons - Spring Collection) Papertrey Ink; (Multicolored Tiny Twinkles) Taylored Expressions; (Black Tulle) The Craft's Meow Kit; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (newspaper print from Mixed Media workshop class) Recycled; (Point 88) Stabilo; (Corner Chomper - 1/2") W R Keeper Memories

I paper-pieced the pumpkins by picking orange and black pattern papers to fulfill the theme. The digi lines were a little weak, so I took my Black Stabilo and re-traced the lines. Messy, messy, and I must admit I was in a hurry...


The newspaper print actually was a little paper cone that Nathalie Kalbach had put our cute little supplies in for the Mixed Media class that I had attended. I thought I would rip it apart, blot some Chicken Feed color on it and give it some orange. The tulle, buttons and twine are from my stash just itching to be used...


Anyways, thanks for stopping by and making it all the way through my long post. Your next stop is the very talented and sweet Stephanie. Tell her she rocks for me :)

And in case you got lost, here's the entire blog hop list...

Great card, love the button treatment. Traditionally at Christmas we have home made stuffing and bread sauce (use packets rest of year!). Carol x

Hi Ren-Yi
What a beautiful card. I love the colors you chose and they compliment well together. What I really love about your creation are the paper-pieced pumpkins. What a great idea. That's another inspiration for me. Thank you for that.
When it comes to my must have tradition. It would be dressing up Christmas tree on the 1st of December and decorating the whole living room at the same time. Of course at Christmas time there is more time to spend with my family and relatives and I love that as well. Would really hate if Christmas got cancelled!!
Happy Halloween and Happy Crafting!
