Howl-o-ween or Wedding? How am I ever going to choose?
So if you have errands to run, get that done today so you don't have any interruptions tomorrow or Wednesday. Priorities people!
This is one of the options Stamp Club members will have on Wednesday. I know it looks like two cards, but it is one option--sometimes people just really don't want to make a Halloween card, even though these products are irresistible and stinkin' cute -- so I have made an alternative that is also stinkin' cute.
The focal point is kind of lost on camera, but sparkly and fantastic in person, BOO! is die cut from black glimmer paper and popped up on dimensionals, and definitely prominent. Also, the vellum is much more sheer in real life, so the skulls show through nicely.
Isn't the black doily awesome. The package includes 24 doilies, they are just a little shiny, so you can rub versamark on them and emboss if you want, they aren't too shiny. Which makes them nice to change up to suit your needs.
The alternate card is a wedding card but could be a congrats or shower card. I embossed the base with the new brick embossing folder then used a marker to make "graffiti" of the wedding couples initials in a heart. Some washi tape, the flower die cut is Dazzling Diamond glimmer paper and the sentiment is from the stamp set Cottage Greetings. Super cute! I think the bricks need some sponging to really make them stand out behind the vellum, I might have to go back and add some ink.
We had a rainy weekend and I had to pull out some photo equipment to get enough light to take these pictures. My little dog was desperate for warmth and light and jumped into the frame every chance he got, just to take advantage of the hot lights. And they weren't really that much of a help! But here he is, since he was hogging the limelight.
There is still room for you in Stamp Club, if you can make it to Arlington Heights once a month and you would like to pat Marky's head and make some cute cards.Just leave a comment or give me a call or email and I'll fill you in on the details.
