Happy First Day of FALL, ya'll!
Here in Texas we are getting a taste of cooler temps. This week is suppose to be in the upper 80's and no one can be more excited than I am!! AC - OFF, WINDOWS - OPEN, FALL cleaning here we come. This year I am going to assign each household member a thorough, deep cleaning job to help out. I want no stone unturned, no cobweb left behind and all those pesky cat hair-balls captured! Since having breast cancer, my stamina is not up to par yet, so I need some serious help. Two of our boys live home so, like it or not, they are going to do the climbing and lifting!
OK, so that's the plan. Now on to more fun stuff. Over at SplitcoastStampers, I belong to a SWAP group called JAMs III. An ATC swap (Just Add one More) that consists of 4 players adding one or two things to the ATC card and sending them on to the next player. I am shamelessly addicted. I know that you are expecting my Halloween card for this year, but I have to tell you how it came to be.
It stated with the sign-up of the Halloween JAM. I am first in line so it was my duty to make the tracking (address list and who sends to whom) the backer card and the background card. So I was searching the internet for some inspiration, and came across this poem.
Isn't it cute! Then I remembered that I had a witch stamp from SU! That would go perfectly, and an Owl stamp from Paper Smooches that would go well, umm, as well.
So I started adding layers and the Owl stamp
And my Halloween card was born! TA DA!
I really like how it turned out, isn't the witch adorable. When I bought this set, I wasn't sure if I would ever use it, but I needed some Halloween stamps. Now I'm glad I did. I think this is retired but they have a new set in the Holiday Catalog.
So here is the Recipe I used:
- STAMP SETS - SU! Googly Ghouls, Paper Smooches - Chubby Chums
- CARDSTOCK - (ALL SU!) Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Green Galore(ret), Gable Green(ret), More Mustard
- DSP - Misc. scraps
- INK - Versamark (for embossing), Su! refills (for "painting the Owl) Only Orange, Crushed Curry, Baked Brown Sugar, Creamy Caramel
- MISC. - SU! Black Embossing Powder, SU! Googly Eyes, SU! Deminsionals (to pop up the witch) Ribbon - American Crafts - Gold Glitter, Stickles - Orange, Lime Green, Patina, Spellbinders - Circle Framelit Die (for the "moon" the Owl is stamped on), Verse - internet, Font - "Chiller"
Thank you so much for stopping by.
