Hi everyone! Yay, it's Friday and it has finally decided to be NICE weather! Love it! We're headed for one last fling in the pool before school starts! I felt like doing some fall/Halloween stamping for today's As You See It challenge, which is a fun sketch!
I had several ideas for this sketch and even did another card before doing this one! Not a problem; it was a baby card and I happened to need one, so it didn't go to waste! But I liked this one better:
My designer papers are from a fun My Mind's Eye pad called Frightful; I have used almost every scrap of it, but I did have these fun moustache and dictionary papers still unused; I paired them with a retired My Favorite Things pumpkin set called Primitive Pumpkins, stamping them in various shades of orange, fussy-cutting them, and layering them along the bottom of the panel. I stamped the stars and tendrils as well:
I added some black glimmer paper accents and sentiment, then added a little twine bow:
And I had an extra pumpkin left over, so I added it to the sentiment inside:
I confess that I probably need a Halloween stamp intervention - I just am a sucker for cute Halloween stamps, so I need to start early so I can use them all, LOL! I hope you'll play along with our sketch...there are lots of possibilities for it and I can't wait to see how you use it! And just for fun, here's the other card I made:
This picture of Cassidy and her friends in the pool reminds me of the nursery rhyme, Rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub....rub-a-dub-dub, three kids on a raft, LOL!
