Stamp Something Spooky!

Happy Halloween to everyone! I've got two very excited boys who can't wait to dress up and are going to a Halloween Party this afternoon. That will mean I'll have a couple of hours to myself but unfortunately, have to pop into town to tax my car - yes, it passed its MoT, thank goodness!!



Well, it may be Halloween but it's also Friday which means another challenge on Stamp Something and, of course, it had to be something spooky!



<

















For the card, I've used an image from Sugar Nellie and coloured it with Promarkers, which took all of five seconds!!!! The papers are a free download, as is the sentiment. Cardstock is Bazzill. Bat brad is Karen Foster and other brads are from my stash. The bags were made from a Digital Download which was just folded in half and attached to the bag of chocolate eyeballs. I've kept it very simple as I had quite a few to make for all the boys' friends.


One more thing to share with you - I made this scrapbook page last year and did load it on my blog when I first started out, however, I love this photo and can't believe how much my boys have grown. Anyway, thought I'd share it with you.




Don't forget to pop on over to Stamp Something and have a go at the challenge this week and take a look at my fellow DT Members' creations - they're fab!

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.






The bag was a little rushed to say the least!

A Little Bit Cheeky!

I saw this stamp set from Indigo Blu and knew I had to have it as I have too many of those friends and family who need to have a slightly naughty but funny card.


I made this card for my friend who has the same sense of humour as me!  Very plain and simple and easy to make...I think the sentiment says it all lol!

AMD Samples - Sending You Birthday Blooms

I have another sample to show today from the Create and Craft TV shows - this time a blue one!

I started with a  5" x 7" scalloped card base and chose three sheets of paper from the blue Garden Blooms pad which I then tore and distressed the edges, inking with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (my favourite!) and then layering them onto a piece of pastel blue double glitz card which had been cut to size with the bottom corners rounded.  
I then took one of the blue postcards and stamped the sentiment in blue on it and of course, inked and shaped the edges!  I then applied Inka Gold to one of the frames from the Shadowbox Kit and glued it over the sentiment.
I then proceeded to arrange a selection of flowers and leaves on top of some natural fibre on the top of the card and also inserted a cheeky little heart!  I dabbed on glue gel to the flowers, leaves and heart and edges of the card and covered with Ice Crystals.
To finish, I cut one of the blue inserts down to size for the inside o…
