Make a wish...

Good Monday morning (actually late Sunday night for some of you). I have another Spellbinders project to share with you all today. A quick and easy simple card.

I had a difficult time getting the papers on this to link below so I'll tell you here the printed paper is from the same sheet (side A is the striped and side B is polka dots) and it is from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose You & Me line. The ribbon is one I have had in my stash for a long while and I am not sure, but I think that is from Making Memories. All die templates are listed and linked below. Hope you all have a great start to a wonderful week!

Trick or Treat

Hi peeps! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments on my last post! It's so fun to go through and read all of them! Plus, those were fun cards to make...three of my favorites...Spellbinders, Unity Stamps and Vintage Vogue line by Collage Press (via Pink Paislee).

Today I have a card to share with you. This was one of my  assignments for Spellbinders and since it has hit the gallery over at Spellbinders I can now share it here. I love this little technique that I used on this. I used the star template off of the edge of the fold of the card. I think it adds such a cool and unique look.

Can you believe there is only 12 more days until Halloween?! 

Thanks for taking a peek today!

I'm excited to share my projects with you. I have chosen to use the Blossom Tags and Accents die templates and the Blossom Stackers stamps. For my first card I just did some simple layering. I stamped the largest flower with white ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder then lightly blended some ink over the top. The rest of the layers were just stamped with chalk ink and then layered on top of one another with 3D Foam Squares. Lastly I embellished with some buttons and twine. Oh, and I also snuck in a little black decorative strip that was made using Classic Triple Scallop die templates.

Here's a little close up so you can better see the embossing.

For my second card. I used the same Blossom Tag and Accents Die Templates and the same Blossom Stacker stamps, however on this one I added a stamped scalloped decorative strip made using the Classic Scallop die template. On this one I cut down some the pieces so that they could be layered to create a cascading effect.

Now please head over to Lisa Henke’s blog…

Thank you so much for hopping by today!!!
