OK, on to my cards for this post. My first is for the House Mouse Monday Challenge #45 over at House Mouse & Friends. The challenge this week was "Seasons". You were to make a card that depicted a season of the year. Since Fall is my favorite season, I chose to do a Halloween card. Here it is:
OMG I love this image! This stamp just came in on Wednesday just in time for this challenge. I used my cheap colored pencils and OMS to color the image. I stamped out extra leaves, cut them out, and attached them to the card with foam mounting squares for the 3-D look. Here is a close up:
I also added a couple around the sentiment which I made using my computer. This image is so magical to me, and conjures up so many fun memories of Halloween. This image is truly on the top of my favs list. One of the reasons that I love the House Mouse stamps is because a lot of them are very large images. My usual size card is 5 X 7, and these stamps help fill all that space. I got several more new stamps, so you'll be seeing more in the next posts.
The other card I made this week is this one:
OK, before you start going "Ewwwwwww! The color of those dew drops don't go with this card!", it is the camera's fault! The dew drops I used are a much darker green, but the flash of the camera made them glow like that. I tried taking the picture outside in direct sunlight, but the picture turned out even worse! The drops could hardly be seen at all, and the ink sponging disappeared all together. So this is the best I could do. So please overlook that bad photo. . .LOL
I double stamped the image (Inque) in Staz-On ink then added glue for the FlowerSoft. I LOVE this stuff, and haven't used it as much as I want to. Here is a close up:
This is the Summer Time mix. I've ordered some more in different solid colors and can think of so much to do with them. Before I stamped the image, I cut out the panel with my Nesties, and before taking it out of the die, I used Antique Linen distress ink to sponge the entire area. I then popped it out and stamped the image and went from there. The little lattice panels are from a Cuttlebug die, and the background paper is from a DCWV stack. And you know the story of the hideous dew drops LOL!
So, there you have it! I'll be back with another post is about a week if not sooner. For some reason, I am up in that stamp room a lot these past few weeks, so I'll have lots more for you. Stay tuned. And don't forget the pic of the week!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I have the BEST readers in all of blogdom! I'll be seeing you on your blogs! You guys have been doing some awesome stuff and you all are such an inspiration to me!
