Fab Friday 01 (on Thursday)

Holy smokes, a post 3 days in a row! That's craziness! Today's card is for a challenge that I came across called Fab Friday. I liked the sketch, I had some time, so I decided to play along. I wanted to do a Halloween card and this is what I came up with. I used the Wicked Cool and Border Banter sets. I used the More Mustard plaid paper from the Orchard Harvest DSP. I stamped the boots 3 times and cut them out. Then in the background I randomly stamped the bats and web in Sahara Sand. The word Spooky is from the Border Banter set and the chevron on the Lucky Limeade piece is also from that set. I think this card came out cute. Although I think there needs to be a little more space in between the word spooky and the brad but oh well. Thanks for taking a peek and be sure to check out the Fab Friday blog and play along!

Serene Silhouettes

Posting 2 days in a row!! That's crazy. That hasn't happened in a while but I was actually able to get a card done yesterday that I wanted to share. I got this set when the new catalog came out but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet. I used lots of new things on this card. My favorite is the tulle ribbon that is from the Holiday mini. I also used the Festival of Prints DSP stack. This card shows how you can use the papers for non christmas cards. There are quite a few designs in there that can be used all year long. I stamped one of the images from the set first in Midnight Muse, then in Baja Breeze, then layered it on Baja Breeze. I added the lovely tulle ribbon and used a Vintage Faceted Designer button in the middle. The sentiment is from Tea Shoppe and it's stamped in Midnight Muse on Baja Breeze. Thanks for taking a look!

More Perfectly Preserved

Hello! I'm back with another Perfectly Preserved card. I actually made this card a couple of weeks ago but just haven't had the time to post. Someone does not like to take many (if any) naps during the day!! At least he sleeps pretty good during the night so I will take that! Anyway, for today's card I used Perfectly Preserved again and the Orchard Harvest DSP. The colors and designs of these papers are great! I love almost all of them. For this card I used the plaid design and the Raspberry Ripple dots design. Again, I stamped the Border Banter set on the cotton ribbon. I stamped the chevron design in Island Indigo. I stamped 2 pears in Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit and used the die to cut them out. The apple is stamped in Raspberry Ripple. Then I used the Textured Impressions Designer Frames embossing folder behind the fruit. And finally I added the Thank you sentiment from the set in the bottom corner. Thanks for stopping by!!!
