I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I spent a relaxing Saturday in my craft room while hubby played golf with our son. Luckily the weather held out for him. I got to play with some of the goodies from my Holiday Catalog pre-order and now I’m sharing the results with you! That’s one advantage to being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, getting a discount on supplies that you can purchase early before anyone else. 🙂
I made my first Halloween card. No, not just for this year, but first ever! I absolutely adore the new Hearth & Home Framelits and thought the stamps in Happy Scenes would pair well with it. The card came out just as I envisioned it. I hope you like it as much as I do.
I also used the Lucky Stars embossing folder (found in the Annual Catalog) to create a night time background. I die cut the cat from Festive Fireside Framelits, also a Holiday Catalog item. I will be using these stamps and dies a lot! They were my absolute favorite from the catalog and I couldn’t wait to use them.
I hope you like my offering today. I used our new Black Archival Ink to stamp the spider web and tree on Very Vanilla. Make sure you let this dry well before you try to sponge over it, like I did with Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi.
On September 1 you will be able to order these for yourself from my website or contact me to request your copy of the paper catalog.
Here’s another peak at the card….
