Hi, thanks for popping by
Using a white card base I added thin layers of black and white card finishing with black card

 I then embossed a pretty pink paper from my stash and distressed the edges
I coloured a piece of tack cloth using a distress ink pad in Victorian Velvet by Ranger and adhered this to the card as well as creating a more jiggered edge to the bottom right side
In black card I cut and embossed a circle using one of my 'old' dies from Spellbinders and adhered it on top of the tack cloth

The sentiment sat on a white on white cut and embossed design by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and I lightly coloured part of it using the Victorian Velvet ink pad

I made several flowers in various shades of pink, cut and embossed 1 white and 2 black  flourishes.  These were then positioned onto my card  as well as a few crystal stems

Thank you for visiting...

Halloween Fun

Hi, thanks for popping by

I made today's card as my entry in

Fantasy Stampers Challenge #74
'Halloween Fun'

This is a 6"x6" white card base with an orange and black mat.  I embossed the top layer using a wall effect embossing folder and also cut and embossed 2 bats

Stamps by Chloe ~ 'Bare Tree' was stamped onto black card and embossed with WOW Black Twinkle Embossing Powder.  I then 'fussy cut' the tree

I drew the dancing skeletons and, again, 'fussy cut' them to place on my card

The card was completed using stock from my stash

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fantasy Stampers - 'Halloween Fun'

My Time To Craft - 'Autumn or Halloween'

Happy crafting...

Hi, thank you for popping by

I'm entering today's card in the
Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog 44
the theme is:


I started by creating an A5 white card base then halving one side again making an easel card

Using aqua card I cut an 18.5mm square, followed by a small layer from white card.  I secured the white card to my non-stick sheet, attached a stencil, then covered it with Creative Expressions Polar White Texture Paste
The stencil was then very carefully removed and cleaned.  The card was left to day overnight. Next day this was adhered to the base aqua card

Using 2 Double Pierced Circles Dies by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions I cut 6 pieces of white and4 pieces of  aqua card to make a frame.   The individual circles were adhered to give depth

Using Clarity's Dreams Stamp I stamped the sentiment onto aqua card then using a circular die cut this out and attached it to the centre of the main card.  I scattered silver stars around the sentiment then adhered the frame as shown

Finally I cut an oblong piece of aqua card then a layer of white card and glued them together.  I added foam mounting tape to this to give definition and also to enable the card to stand correctly

Using Tonic Square Dies I cut and embossed 5 aqua then 5 smaller white matts and adhered to the oblong border

This was completed using the Art Deco Alphabet - Upper Case Dies from the Expressions Collection by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions

I chose 'sweet' to compliment the 'dream' sentiment

I would like to enter this card in Clarity Stamps Blog Challenge 44 - Circles and/or Squares
