Hello... I've had a great weekend so far, especially since I have a rare weekend off to start with! I went to visit my sister and went to the Kitchener Farmer's Market - they have such amazing prices on fresh, local produce. We popped by the St. Jacob's Antique Market, we got a couple of Christmas gifts... and one for myself (a pretty ring!). When I got home I went for a nice, long evening walk with my hubby and Tucker (my dog)... then finished up my swaps... any playtime makes me happy :)
Today, I'm going to my Stampin' Up! upline's downline meeting - so there will be more stamping and swapping! I'm excited to see what creations everyone has come up with. I had some time on Friday to make a few cards - and since Halloween is on my mind with planning my party, I've got a bunch of cards for such an occasion. For today, I made a larger than normal card (it's 4X8" - so an 8"X8" piece scored in half). Another great thing about the fall is the colours - oranges, yellows, browns, black, mossy green tones, rusts.. so pretty! I used Basic Black for my base, with layers of Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey with a piece of the 'Flower Pot' designer series paper... love those fun polka dots! I decided to stamp a whole bunch of the 'spooky eyes' from the 'Freaky Friends' set and punch them out with the 1/2" circle punch and add one set of eyes for each polka dot (some are on dimensionals, some are not).
I stamped a few of the 'bat' image and fussy cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals randomly on the card front to incorporate a bit more black.
To finish my card, I wrapped some Basic Black Baker's twine around my layers 3 times! I stamped the sentiments 'boo to you' and happy halloween' using the new 'Good Greetings' hostess promotion set. I am loving this set - so perfect for many occasions. Available until October 31, 2014.
I hope you like my share today, enjoy the rest of the weekend!
