This is a "no stamp" card. I had purchased this paper last year at Hobby Lobby. It is by Daisy D's. I loved the vintage feel of the pictures on the paper (this was one of 3 or 4 on the 12 x 12). When I bought it, I had this card in mind and 1 year later it materialized! I cut it from the paper, matted it with black and red cs added bling at the bottom and on top of the hat, distressed the white cs with black ink, added the ribbon and done! If you click on the picture, you will see the saying "Friendly Fairy, Witch, or Fay Fulfil the Wish You Wish Today." I thought to myself what the heck is a "Fay"? So I looked it up and it is the old Middle English word for "Elf". So, there ya go ~ you learned something new today on my blog! On to the next card. . .
This one is my "Halloween Gallery" card. It reminded me of pictures hung on a wall. If you click on the picture, you'll see the background paper has a paisley print which looks like wall paper. This was a simple card to put together. . .just stamped the images, embossed them with clear ep, cut them out and matted them with black cs, used foam mounting squares for a couple of the images, and then attached them to the card. There are 3 different stamp companies represented here. . .Inkadinkado, Stampede, and Stampabilities. The ink is Colorbox black. I added a red rhinestone to the raven's eye, and when I took the picture below the sun hit it just right to give it this effect!
How fun (and creepy) is that! It was an unexpected photo effect without trying!
The last of the 3 is more whimsical. . .
I hope you enjoyed these! Making these has gotten me so in the mood for Fall! So Autumn cards are soon to follow! I love anything Autumn, the colors, the crisp cool air, the smells of wood burning, cinnamon, and apple cider. Going to the pumpkin patch, decorating the house in warm Autumn colors, etc., etc. . . .Sorry, I was rambling wasn't I?
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and for the comments you all left on the last post. I'll be anxious to see what you think of this group! Hope you are all well and things are wonderful in your worlds! I'll see you on your blogs! Don't forget the pic of the week below! This one I took a couple of days ago while walking the boys. It was such a cool flower and I picked this photo for this particular post because it has such Autumn colors! Enjoy!
