So, Sherry came over to play yesterday afternoon, and convinced me that Halloween was coming sooner than Christmas, so I should create something for that instead of the Christmas tags I had been planning on (although she was working on Christmas....okay, it's for a swap and there is a deadline involved, but still...)
I wanted to do something different instead of stamping, so I pulled out some stencils to see what struck me, and then needed my Sizzix paddle punches, and some embossing powder, and... Anyway, the result of Round 1 is this:
Patterned paper is Provo Craft, alphabet stamps are Martha Stewart Halloween Typeface, bats are the Sizzix paddle punch. I guess I didn't get it out of my system last night, because today I made this one:
Green cardstock and the patterned paper are DCWV, epoxy stickers are from JoAnn's. The ghost was done direct-to-paper with a Ranger Perfect Medium stamp pad and Ranger Perfect Pearls in silver, as was the sentiment, which is from the CTMH set "Halloween Fun". The "Boo" sequin is from a random Halloween pack I picked up somewhere. This is the first time I've stitched on a card, although I've been sewing for almost 40 years now! I was as nervous about it as if I was a beginner! Craziness...
Well, the laundry is calling me, the cupboards are bare, and I've been playing all day, so I guess I should get back to "real life" now... I know, I know - still no tutorials. They're coming, I promise! I just keep getting sidetracked (don't pretend it doesn't happen to you). Later!
