Three Cards This Week

halloween card 2010I make cards for a Charity close to my heart and decided to make something slightly different for them this year.  Here is my first attempt at a Halloween card. Used a Cuttlebug Folder, Paper Artsy and Creative Expressions stamps and Distress Inks.  The font is from a kit i was given a long time ago and finishes off the card really well:-)
formyfriendflwr 01I’ve been trying to use up some of the older kits i used to purchase before i found the wonderment of rubber stamping.  This one came with hand made paper, flowers and some large sequins.  Sprayed the hand made paper with Cosmic Shimmer mica sprays  and stamped onto the sequins using Creative Expressions flower stamp.

I stuck the shapes onto the glossy card using the new Eco Glue by Julia Andrus (which is a fantastic glue and works really well on most surfaces); cut around them and made this…

Thanks for dropping by. comments would be appreciated:-)
