Craft Fun

I had another fun day crafting with friends at Denise's.  We decided to make some Halloween cards.  I had seen this card on several blogs and wanted to make it.


Stamps - Frightening Feline - SU
Ink - Stazon
Paper - Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and DSP Scraps - SU
Embellishments - Ribbon, Googly Eyes
Accessories - Label Die, Embossing Folder

I used my Pumpkin Pie to make this A2 card base.  Then added a layer of Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4".  I have seen this done with washi tape, but we didn't have any Halloween tape, so we used some DSP scrap paper instead.  We angled the paper and then trimmed off the excess.  We used the label dies and embossed the pumpkin pie die cut.  Then we stamped our "little feline" and popped it up with dimensionals.  We put on some googly eyes and a collar of ribbon and we were done!  I thought it turned out so cute!

Our friend Martha is heading back to Florida - have a safe trip and we will see you next summer!  It is so much fun to stamp with friends.  Everyone can do the same card but they all look a little different.

On a sad note, the girls Holland Lop Rabbit - Gilbert - died yesterday.  I have to say that Gilbert was the nicest rabbit we have ever seen.  All he wanted was for you to visit with him and hold and pet him - which we all did!  The girls were involved in 4H and he definitely added to their trophies and ribbons along the way.  We will miss you Gilbert......and we will never forget you!

Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

Love your card! The cat stamp is great and the designer paper works perfectly in place of Washi tape. I'm sorry about Gilbert. He looks very sweet and lovable in the photo and I know that rabbits can be very affectionate.
