Sugar Skull

Here's an awesome Dia De Los Muertos image from TLKreations on Etsy. I love this detailed image.  I colored it up with an assortment of copic markers and added some colorful sequins and stickers to decorate the card.

Question of the Day:  I am so happy to have some great stamps from TLKreations today to share with you.  Is you favorite the cute owl I shared on the 9th (Click here if you want to go back and look) or this image of the Sugar Skull?

Second Question of the day, there's some things I know I have goodies for, but are they your favorite thing?  Coffee? giraffes? paris? butterflies? Flamingos? hot air balloons?  owls?  just those things that some people absolutely LOVE and others are like....cute but not for me

Coffee, Butterflies, Angels, fairies, hot air balloons and giraffes are all great stamps to have on hand! I love this sugar skull and your coloring is spot on! TFS!

Hi Holley - I love the sugar skull! As for themes, I love everything! But do you have anything cutsie for little boy cards? I have a 3 year old nephew that I send birthday cards to.

Jean said...

Such a colorful card. Not my style but you do it well. Love giraffes and all florals.

sammi said...

Fun card! Love sugar skulls! Some of my favorite subjects are Flamingos, Butterflies owls and Giraffes! Especially love giraffes!

Denise Bryant said...

I'm more likely to use the owl than the sugar skull.
From your list coffee and butterflies are my top picks!

Yvonne Krijgsman said...

Spooky card Holley but i like the owls more.XX

Linda Simpson said...

A brilliant card. I have to admit I prefer owls to skulls.

Such a bright, fun and happy card! Though it's not my usual style, that sugar skull is really pretty. I'm always drawn to florals and outdoor images (wood, deer, moose, etc.).

Gaye Valle said...

Owls, birds, butterflies -- hmmmmm I like flying things, evidently! I have so enjoyed the blog!

Amy Martin said...

I would have the say the sugar skull. The owl is cute though. My favorites would be Butterflies, the deer, dreamcatchers, flowers and paris. Anything I can use for mixed media too. I dont use cutesy as much.

maureenjscott said...

Loving the sugar skull!
Also loving butterflies and giraffes!
Love you card. Xx

Candy Meyers said...

Very colorful image. I know you like them, and that’s great. But they aren’t for me. I like butterflies, flowers, music, etc. very much a traditionalist. Isn’t it nice that there are all kinds of stamps for all kinds of people.

Lucie Horowitz said...

For some strange reason, I love the Day of the Dead. I love your sugar skull card. I do like 'normal' stamps, but due to problems with my hands, I need stamps that are embossible or with larger designs.

Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw said...

Great colors! As for choosing between the skull and owl, definitely the owl for me. I love butterflies, angels, fairies, flowers, Paris, coffee.... :)

Gwyneth said...

Your card looks bright and eyecatching Holley, but I'm not a fan of skulls, so the owl is most definately my favourite.
Giraffes, butterflues, iwls, even coffee are all lovely. Not Paris. Don't know why, but flamingo images don't make it to my favourites list either.

Deborah said...

I like the Owl over the Sugar Skull. While I appreciate the artistry of the Skull they are not for me lol. Just give me all the authentice mexican food I can eat! I love foxes, Flamingos, fairies and butterflies.

Audrey R said...

Maybe a bicycle stamp?

Twylia Bell said...

Thanks for sharing your talent with us all. I liked the Owl image previously as I'm not into the Skulls at all. But some of my favorite things are COFFEE, GIRAFFES, BUTTERFLIES, Old Maps and things with a vintage look.

jane stillman said...

This card sure is colourful. I don't dislike it, but I wouldn't choose it, so the owl it has to be for me. All things vintage, butterflies and hot air balloons are some of my favourites

Frances Freeman said...

Your sugar skull is awesome!!!!! I love flamingos, funny sayings, 50’s vintage theme ... well everything!!!!!

Fikreta said...

its awesome card!
I love coffee and cats :D

Karenladd said...

Love your colorful sugar skull, but the owl is adorable as well. My favorites are animals, especially dogs and cats. I also like vintage designs like Graphic 45, and artsy images like Tim Holtz. Humorous and punny sayings always grab me and yes...I love coffee!!

Cindy Holmes said...

I would say that my favorite card would definitely have to be the owl one! Just so precious! My favorite types of stamps are Coffee, Flowers, and Butterflies hands down!

Mel C said...

I like Owls the best over skulls. My favorite: Love Coffee, Love Giraffes & Owls! (also love Cowgirls & Snowmen). I have been lucky enough to find a few Cowboy Snowmen for Christmas cards, gotta love Texas stuff!

cjknick said...

I'm more partial to the owl. Skulls just don't do much for me. I prefer nature stamps, like flowers, trees, leaves. 🙂

Christine Telega said...

The sugar skull is not my favorite. I like the owl. I like images of piggies, coffee and images of Paris

Laura Murphy said...

Love the owl...owls are my fave..love giraffes too...and butterflies

Pat said...

Def the Sugar Skull! I am into Dia de los Muertos big time. As far as the other things you mentioned I also love flamingoes and other animals. Your card rocks today, Holley!

Stacy H-W said...

I like the sugar skull best but they are both great! I don’t really have a specific theme I’m into

Kathy said...

Great sugar skull card. I prefer the owl, though. I use a lot of flowers, butterflies, and animals.

Melodyscraps, mixed media goddess said...

Beautiful card today! I love dia de la meurte! The sugar skull is my fav. I'm also crazy about giraffe! I have a large collection of figurines and statues. Butterflies are also a big love. I am also getting more into bird and ButterflY stamps.

Sylvia Ames said...

Love this colourful skull card although they are not something I use in my cardmaking. I do love birds and butterflies but have a wide range of stamps in my stash.

SHartl said...

Awww, this is a fun card! I have a set of sugar skulls but havent even used them yet. I think I'll take your lead and color them in with bright hues! My favorite kinds of images are animals like cats and dogs, cute Christmas reindeer, fruits and trees etc, coffee, polar bears, and anything cute. Designs like the ones from Lawn Fawn,Mama Elephant and Paper Smooches make me squeal!

Rachel Duong said...

Your skull card is cheerful and fun! I love the owl because I love animals. My favorite image you asked about is definitely the giraffe. I see lots of card ideas posted with giraffes and really love this new trendy animal!

Vivian Foo said...

Love your card as I love Skulls. I love coffee and cats and if you will consider quirky and zany critters or people images.

Linda Dicks said...

This card is creepy to me. I'm not a sugar skull person. OWLS are my thing. I really like them. Both in crafting and as decided throughout my house

Jennifer Dillon said...

Love this card and image but I also love the owl . My favorite things are horses cats flowers and lace.
