Swap a Halloween Card

This card was done with the technique of sponging. The colors were layered, the moon was masked, the trees and bats were stamped. How much fun is that. Now, I get to make 9 more for my Halloween swap on Monday night.

Kristin, here I come.

Weddings Weddings Weddings CAS32

It is not June -- I should be thinking about Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, but I am thinking about weddings. I've been married to my HONEY for 25 years -- and we will not have another wedding together, but all those brides to be are in the wings.

And then there are the anniversaries -- Here are some wedding cards and anniversary cards using the same ideas -- use for either -- YEAH -- Multi use

Pumpkin, Cat's and SC

I learned many techniques from Michelle Zindorf. I incorporated some of those strategies when I designed this card. Some of them are sponging, double emboss resist, masking, color on color, brayer, etc. I used two different SU stamp sets and the paper is from the mini holiday catalog. The SU Sizzix Top Note die has been cut down. The background orange is brayered on the negative side of the Cuttlebug folder "soft swirls" with pumpikin pie ink on pumpkin pie paper. Mini brads were used to replicate the dots on the paper.
