5 Panel Halloween


Hello and welcome. I hope you're week is coming along nicely.

Todays card is for our 19 year old granddaughter. She likes cards that are different so hers are always a challenge for me. I CASE'd this 5 Panel Fancy Fold Card from the very talented Debbie Henderson. You can see Debbie's card with instructions HERE.

I made my own background paper using SU's Pumpkin Pie cs with their Stars Decorative Mask and Tim Holtz Woodgrain stencil using a sponge dauber and black stamp pad. Bellyband is a small piece of ribbon I found in my stash; witch in circle is from the Silhouette Cameo.; witch silhouette above the sentiment is Google clip art;  sentiment was found on Pinterest. All edges of the Pumpkin Pie cs are sponged.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

Halloween Bats



Hello and welcome. I hope you're having a good start to this last week of September. Uffda!! (can you tell I'm Norwegian??)  time goes by way too fast.

Todays card will go to my 16 year old grandson. Background paper is from my stash; bats and sentiment are from the Silhouette Cameo. I cut the sentiment in orange and black so it has a little dimension. Drippy goo is a Martha Stewart punch; bats eyes are Stickles.

Birthday Wine Bottle


Hello and welcome. I hope the weekend is going well for you.

Todays card was inspired by this sentiment: "I bought you an awesome bottle of wine for your birthday! It was wonderful, I thought about you the entire time though."  Being the nasty person I am, I thought this would be perfect for my friend who has been away all summer and missed our  'girls wine & chit-chat' nights.  

Instead of putting a wine bottle on a card, I thought why not make a shaped card. Both sentiment and bottle template were found on Pinterest. The gold top was cut from a piece of gold specialty paper I found in my stash. To find a border for the label I Googled 'wine labels'. The HB circle is tied on with a piece of twine. On the inside I added a label to the left side so I'd have space to sign it. Edges of the labels and circle were sponged.

BOO!



Hello and welcome. Isn't it nice that fall is officially here? My favorite time of year.

Todays card is for my dear old sister to send to her great-granddaughter. For the background, I masked the moon then I used a cotton ball, torn edge of paper and Night Of Navy stamp pad trying to make a dark cloudy sky. Ghost, cut from white glitter cs, and BOO! are Sizzix Sizzlits; witch, punched from black glitter cs, is a Martha Stewart punch; fence is from the Silhouette Cameo; pumpkins are from an online coloring page colored with Copic's and fussy cut with yellow Stickles added. I also added a few pumpkins to the inside.

Happy 30th Ashley



Hello and welcome. I hope you had a good weekend will have a good week. My week is starting well. Tuesday will be girls night for wine on the patio. Think we're a little delusional here in Sun City calling ourselves "girls"???  lol

Todays card is for our granddaughter's 30 birthday. Hard to believe that's possible....she was just a baby a couple years ago.
Background paper is Stampin Up's Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper. Sentiment dies are Die-namics that I also cut from chip board to add a little dimension. The 'th' are from an extended Sizzix Sisslet die; numbers were cut on the Silhouette Cameo and are inlaid. Bow is the Bow Builder punch by Stampin Up.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.
