Happy Halloween

halloweenWOW…October 31st!  Happy Halloween everyone!  I wanted to take one more opportunity to share a fun Halloween card.  These were some ‘odds and ends’ that I had (you guessed it) sitting on top of my desk.

These little pumpkins are just the cutest and I just had to use them.  I love the Halloween Night Baker’s Twine and doing 4 layers at once really is a great way to use it (and fill up that big open area at the top of the panel – LOL!)

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 4 1/ x 11 folded
  • Silver/Black spider web dsp – 1 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Pumpkin Glimmer – 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to silver/black piece
  • Whisper White – 3 x 4 1/2, stamp greeting using Momento Black
  • Layer 4 strands of the Halloween Nights Baker’s Twine (2 of pumpkin/black and 2 of grey/black), wrap around panel and tie ito a bow.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp two pumpkins, faces, and stems/leaves using Momento Black, color with Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede markers, cut out; add one directly onto panel and one using dimensionals

So…HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

 Set(s): Jar of Haunts, Spooky Fun
Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Halloween Nights dsp, Pumpkin glimmer
Ink: Momento Black, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede
Other: Halloween Nights Baker’s Twine, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Nothing but Words

CreateFA15HopWelcome

Oh do we have a fun challenge for the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop – Nothing But Words – using a words stamp as the main focus of our project.

For my project I decided to go a little different direction than probably the other design team members.  As soon as I saw this challenge I thought of this card that I made back in February 2014.  It was one of my favorites and I thought it would be fun to update it with some of our current stuff.

sathopwords

It’s this fun!  I think it really does feature the words…but instead of it being the focal greeting, it is the background!  It really is a fun card…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, corner round the bottom left.
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, corner round the bottom left, stamp greeting using Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron, and Perfect Plum.  The great thing about using the Photopolymer stamps is that is makes placement so easy!
  • Basic Black – cut out umbrella and handle.  I want the rod of the umbrella to be a little long so I did split it and extended it on the back.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add some Silver Metallic Dots to finish it off.

Now to send this to a friend of mine who has been a bit ‘under the weather!
