Halloween's just around the corner!

This Spider Web embossing folder from the Holiday mini is so fun.  I took a sponge with some white craft ink to highlight it.  The basic black panel with its corners rounded with the corner rounder was mounted on a pumkin pie base.  I water colored the little girl from "Greeting Card Kids" cut her out and mounted her with dimensionals.  Happy Halloween is from the set House of Haunts.

Deck the Halls

Love this paper.  It looks yummy with our Cherry cobbler paper.  I made this card back in August but wasn't happy with it.  Now looking at it I think it's worth posting.  Maybe, just maybe it will inspire you to cut into that designer paper you have stashed.  Just trim around those large images and tada you have another way to use the paper.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!

Thank you rock and roll.

Rock and Roll is a technique that I don't use often enough.  I took this leaf from my new favorite set Day of Gratitude (w 120835) (c 121148).  I first inked up the leaf in more mustard then rolled the edges of it in always artichoke, then stamped it on very vanilla card stock sponged with always artichoke.  I stamped the thank you with artichoke and then added some piercing using my Paper Piercing Tool (116631) and the Mat Pack (105826).  After that I mounted it on the Top Note Die (113463) which I cute twice to get the square, this was done with a piece of more mustard card stock.  I used a piece of always artichoke scored with my score pal for the back panel, tied some retired more mustard ribbon. Mounted all of it on a base of more mustard. 

Hope you have a GREAT day and thanks for stopping by.
