Now that you officially have the Adele song in your head! 
I am in love with the Peony dies from Whimsy Stamps.
I used gold Stampin' Up! paper for the petals and Papertrey Ink for the leaves.  I took a gold Sharpie and outlined the edges of the leaves for a bit more drama.

The background was created with a stencil, texture paste, and kraft card stock.  
The black and white portion was a piece left over from another stamping project.  I layered everything with crafty foam tape for added dimension
I used die cut letters to spell Hello and colored them with an Cadmium Orange and Red R27. (You can find a similar alphabet stamp at Whimsy Stamps called Bold ABC's.) Once it was dry I adhered them to the front of the card.  I scattered a few gold sequins and rhinestones to finish it off.  
So glad you stopped by today!

31 Nights of Halloween!

I am so excited to be a guest designer for Whimsy Stamps, 31 Nights of Halloween, that I made THREE projects! I used the same set for all 3.  It is called, Halloweeners Clear Stamps!  I stamped my mummy and Miss Dracula using black Memento ink.  I masked them off and then die cut a circle out of masking paper and placed it on the kraft card stock.  I inked around it in a dark brown and black ink.  I then used the negative space and inked the moon using white ink.  

I colored the images with Copic markers and added glossy accents for a bit of dimension.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink, tied red twine, and added a few plastic spiders for good measure!
This card is as spooky as I get!  ;)

For my next card I stamped the images in a pale grey Memento ink and water colored the images.  I added dots in between the images using an orange and black Copic Marker.  I stamped the image on to black card stock with Versamark Ink.  I embossed it in white and used a tag punch. I tied purple and white twine vertically, added the tag, and glued a few sequins to finish off the card. 
My last project I created to cover the large LifeSaver Gummy candies.  These are my absolute favorites!I could eat this babies until my teeth fall out!
I used the squares from the Peekaboo Window Die.
I stamped the images with black Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers.  I inked up the backgrounds and added glossy accents to the main image.  Once it was dry I spattered a bit of coordinating water colors over the image. 
I stamped the sentiments on black card stock and Versamark.  I embossed it in white.  I added a few sequins and the tag to the front of my image.  I tied a little bow with white string. 
I so appreciate you stopping by!
Thanks so much!
