It is September now, and even though it is still in the upper 80's here, my mind is already drifting towards fall. So many exciting changes in the next couple of months.  My son is graduating the Navy's Nuclear Power School at the end of September.  And then, he is getting married on October 28th.  Crazy how the last couple of years have changed our lives immensely.  
I am definitely in fall mode and cranking out some fun Halloween cards.  This witch is part of the So Witchy stamp set from Whimsy.  I colored her with Copics and fussy cut her out. 
The background was created using the Broken Web embossing folder on black paper.  I swiped it with a white ink to make it pop a bit.  I added a piece of black and white polka dot paper from the 6 x 6 Mix n Match Neutrals.  I literally hoard every scrap of this paper! Orange twine and a few orange enamel dots were added as a finishing touch. 
Wishing you a very happy holiday weekend!

Whimsy Stamp's New Release!

Hello and good morning!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's new release! I hope you love Halloween! So many fun spooky, and not so spooky products available! For today's card I used this awesome Drippy Frame Die.  I cut it in red card stock, inked the edges in Black Soot, and gave it a coating of glossy accents.  I inked up a piece of water color paper in various shades of Distress Oxide inks and stamped my sentiment from the Trick or Treat House set. 
I cut out the drippy frame again with crafty foam and glued it under my cardstock frame.  I adhered it directly over the sentiment.  I felt I needed a little "something, something" so I added a black cat from the Build a Graveyard Die set.  I attached everything to the cobweb paper from the Haunted Graveyards 6 x 6 paper pack.  As a finishing touch I glued a scattering of red sequins from the Freshly Picked Cherries Confetti Mix. 
Be sure to pop by Whimsy Stamps to see the full release! So many fun Halloween items!
Have a great day my friends!

Halloween Birthday

Hello friends! 
I have a Halloween birthday card to share today using Whimsy Stamp's new Boo Day stamp set.  My future daughter in law's birthday is right on Halloween, so I made this with her in mind. :)
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers.  I chose the smaller images so I could use the balloon dies from the Happy Hamsters Outline Die set.
The background was embossed using Bats Galore. 
I added a strip of black and white polka dotted paper from the Mix n Match Neutrals paper pack.  (I am obsessed with this paper! I keep every single scrap of it!) I added a few gold sequins from the Bokeh Bliss Confetti Mix and called it finished! :)
I will be back tomorrow with Whimsy's new release! Be sure to stop by! :)
