A Spider Webbed Halloween

Hi there...

okay so I tried again with the distressed background, and this one turned out exactly the  way I in visioned it :) I liked it! LOL

I've been making larger sized cards such as 5.5 x 5.5 or 5 x 7, which is the size of this card...I like having enough room to create something I actually see before I make it.

What do you think ?

Have a great day :)

Card recipe:
Stamps: Inkadinkado Hallow's eve, Making Memories halloween
Paper: Neenah Solar White (base), GP, Bazzill CS
Ink: Tim Holtz Distressing Inks, VersaMark.

An Inspired Thank You

Good morning all :)

I'm getting ready for the Xmas holidays already can you believe've already started making my Xmas cards and gifts...have any of you started yet..? or at least have an idea of what to start with..? I'm looking for some new ideas this year. If any of you have any ideas I'd be happy to hear them :)

This card I made is a one layer card. I tend to do more layered work so this was a nice change of pace for me. Using the distress inks and distressing technique made this nice and simple.

Hope you all have a nice day :)

Stamps: SU Inspired by Nature, Birds on a branch, Inkadinkado sentiment.

This will be a short post. I tried a technique that required a negative cute out. I used a spellbinder die negative to create the background. I've been trying to come up with one layer simple cards. I love how this turned out. It's nice and fresh :)

For those of you who don't know the acronym CAS it's Clean And Simple

Thanks for looking.

Simple Sets! Easy Gift Giving

Good afternoon everyone :)

I've been having trouble with my sleeping patterns and will be looking into a sleep clinic to find out why I'm not sleeping. I've done everything and still not sleeping as long as I should be. With that being said I've lagged a little on posting.

I'll be posting a couple of set that I put together. I hope you like them :)

The first one to left is from the Both Ways Blossoms Set.
I've had the stamp set for a long time and never really use it. When I needed to come up with simple gift giving sets I pulled it out and VOILA! I came out with these. They did turn out really nice. I made 2 of each for this set and used prisma color pencils to color them.

I love this set too. I made this one with 3 different simple styles and two sayings. I had to use this stamp set. I loved the trees and they worked well for what I wanted.

I used SU water based markers to color the images.
Here is the second saying with the 3 different simple styles. All the cards are blank inside to write your own person saying

Thanks for looking! :)

Card Recipe:

Paper: 110LB CS
Ink: Versafine Black, SU Markers.
Stamps: Both Way Blossoms, Good neighbors, Whimsical Words.
