Stamp Club Challenge

I was a good girl for our November stamp club sketch challenge and followed the sketch to the "T" including using fabric. Very proud of myself:)

The base cardstock is dark green and the kraft cardstock is SU's crumb cake. The green Christmas tree fabric has been in my stash forever. I cut the fabric with the Memory Box ornament die and the overlay in crumb cake was also a Memory Box die. I stitched the fabric with tan thread and stitched the crumb cake cardstock in irridescent green thread. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. The holly embossing folder used on the crumb cake is from Sizzix. I completed the card with fiber from my stash and bling from Dazzles.

Halloween Cat

I've been experimenting with sponging Distress Inks and air brushing with my Copics along with this fun, solid stamp from Stamp Francisco.


This first card was sponged with Distress Inks (below photo - and yes, I know, I misspelled "sapphire").


This second card was air brushed with Copics (below photos). I think I like the effect of the air brushed Copics over the sponging of the Distress Inks.

Both cards were punched with the Martha Stewart spider web punch on orange card stock and mounted on a 5 x 5 black folded card.

Unfortunately, I've finished creating Halloween cards. They're just too much fun to make. Before you know it, Christmas will be here and I have many cards and projects to create.

Happy trick or treating!

Gift Card Holder

It was my turn this month to bring the shoe box to our stamp club. I chose this gift card holder which I saw on-line but neglected to note which website. I used SU's crumb cake card stock as the card base and some discontinued SU holiday paper I bought from a garage sale this summer.


This holder will fit into an A2 envelope. I used Marianne's Designs poinsettia die and Tim Holtz's pine bough die to embellish the front. The tag stamp is from Hero Arts.

You would also stamp a sentiment on the inside left. You can get very creative with embellishing this project.

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Love making Halloween cards!

This large image stamp is from Stampendous and I believe is a new release this year. I stamped it in tuxedo black Memento ink onto SU's crumb cake cardstock. Colored a little bit of the hat with orange Copics and mounted the image onto black cardstock. I punched the bottom of the black cardstock with the Martha Stewart spider's web punch. The brad embellishment is from My Minds Eye Lost and Found collection. I raised the entire piece on a crumb cake card.

Happy Halloween Quoth the Raven!
