I can't believe how fast Wednesdays come around! Time seems like it is just flying. I hope this post finds you and your loved ones well and happy. On to this evening's post. . . . . .
I had a hard time deciding what to show you first of the 3 things I'm posting tonight. So I've decided to post a card first. This card has something that I think is an original idea, but then again, I just may not have seen it on the web. Regardless, I've never seen it before so it is an original idea to me LOL. Here is the card:
I fell in love with this stamp the minute I laid eyes on it! It is a new release stamp over at Impression Obsession by Gary Robertson. The stamp is called "Peeking Pumpkin". I think it can be used for both Fall and Halloween cards. I used a combination of colored pencils and markers. I didn't want to use patterned paper because the image is so rich in detail. I tried doing a scored frame around it, and that didn't do it for me. So, I thought a little glitter would brighten it up but where would I put it? So there it is on the photo frame corners. This is the idea I was talking about. Look at the pic below:
I put a strip of 1/2 inch score tape on some card stock. I then used that punch you see at the top to punch out "pre-sticky" photo corners. Once they were punched out, I simply peeled off the tape and put glitter on them. The score tape holds it on permanently. Fun idea? Or have you seen it somewhere before? The glitter I used is Martha Stewart and it is called "Brownstone".
Speaking of Martha, this next project is thanks to her. Take a look:
It is a cool coffin candy box. Here are more pics:
This template is wonderful, and as you can see from the pic above, it holds a ton of stuff. I added the oozing blood using the MS punch. I also glued the inside paper to the black card stock before cutting the template so that it looks like the coffin is lined with creepy cloth. I used rough twine to give it an even creepier look. You can find the free downloadable template HERE.
My final show and tell is another card:
This is the larger size of the Schnauzer stamp that I got from Bugawumps. I made this for a friend who has had a streak of bad luck lately and I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her. I used the technique of using a Nestability oval die and cut the image so that his ears and top of his head stick up off of it. I love this stamp so much.
Well that's it for another Wednesday Evening Post. Hope you've enjoyed it and felt it was worth your time. I'll be back on Sunday with a new High Hopes challenge card for you. Until then, I'll be making my rounds of your blogs to see what you've been up to for the past week.
Don't forget the pic of the week! It is new! LOL
Hugs and good wishes to all of you!
