Hey friends… I’m kind of slowing down on blogging lately, but having a handful of recently made cards I thought I’d share with you today. I tend to post a lot more on Instagram… it’s so much easier to like and comment there, especially from my phone. If you’re not in Instagram, you ought to be! :)
This first card is actually a revision of this card I posted the other day. I really loved playing with the Haunted Headstones stamps from Papertrey Ink, but kept looking at my card thinking it needed something, know what I mean? And I woke up Saturday morning with this idea…
The night before, I had asked my BFF Bar what the original card needed, and she said “do you have any ghosts or skeletons?” And I said no, I didn’t. But when I woke up Saturday morning, I remembered these spooky faces from the new Make-It Market Min Kit: Halloween Pin-Ups. So I added Frankenstein, and a ghost for a little more added character to my card! :)
Here’s another card I made a few weeks ago using this sweet Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set that I won from the MarkerPOP challenge. (I was supposed to win a different set but it was out of stock, so I picked Into the Woods instead!)
I actually made this card intending to enter it in the Share Joy challenge #5 but didn’t get it blogged in time. I followed the sketch and the colors. (Many thanks to my friend Katie for letting me borrow her dies for this set!)
I made this card way back in early September for Color Throwdown #358. But the longer I looked at the card, the more I just thought it was too plain…
So then I made this card instead, but for some reason I ended up making yet another card for that CTD challenge, and never blogged either one of these!
On both of these cards I used the BG Grid background stamp from My Favorite Things, and the center was die-cut with the Luminary Circles die from Simon Says Stamp. Then I added the Wishing die-cut, and a sentiment from the Sending and Wishing stamp set, also from Simon Says.
Finally, my husband and I have this friend who’s always bugging me about sending him a card. (Last night his dog got skunked, and he actually said I should send a get well card to the dog!) And back in June, I was just overly busy and didn’t get a birthday card sent to him, and he became relentless in wanting a card! So I finally sat down and made this…
I used all of the Crazy Birds from the Tim Holtz stamp set, masking them in this arrangement. I was a little ticked off at myself for making them so off-center, so I tried adding the sentiment at the bottom to off-set. I don’t think I succeeded, but Rick didn’t care. He loved the card… even the inside!
LOL I was afraid he wouldn’t get the sarcasm there, but he did! :)
I hope you enjoyed this line-up of “catch-up” cards! Thanks for stopping by today!
