Halloween Card for Mom


Well, the spooky time is upon us, and I thought I'd share a card that I made for my mom!
I features an embossed Hero Arts background, overlayed with Distressed Inks, and then spritzed with Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer. I then used pop dots to apply a Sizzix Tim Holtz Label embossed with Hero Arts Stamps, highlighted with Distress Ink, and embellished with a little bling. It's finished off with a little ribbon and a bow. I have tried several of these techniques before, but never all together. It might be a bit much, but Halloween is all about exaggeration! Hope you like it!

Card Making Day!

Thought I would share with you a couple of cards I have made for World Card Making Day. A friend is sending a couple of these Christmas cards over to Afghanistan for our American troops to send to their own families this Christmas. The stamp I used is from Ladybug Crafts Ink (see the blog hop patch here on my blog to see more of their stamps.) I believe this one is called Teddy Bear Robyn.
The second card also uses a Ladybug Crafts Ink stamp, and this one is called Coffee Nikki. I actually gave this one to my husband! I won the Robyn stamp in a drawing that Kerry had this past Spring on her blog, and if you join the Blog Hop that starts Tuesday, you will have the chance to win some great prizes, too! I really love these stamps. I haven't found anything with such a fun sense of style anywhere else!
