I was away over the Halloween holiday and into the second week in November helping my daughter with a room renovation on her beach house in Seaside, Oregon. I was pleasantly surprised to find two wonderful Halloween cards from two of my favorite cardmaking buddies had arrived in my absence. I so love making Halloween cards, and I was delighted to receive some that I had not made. These two ladies and I had lunch and went cardmaking shopping at a little shop in Tukwila, WA called Impress Stamps. We made many wonderful purchases between the three of us. Most of our purchases were going to be used for Halloween cardmaking, and the cards I received from them were using some of their new stamps and dies. I want to share their cards with you.
This card was made by my friend, Sandy. It depicts our neck-of-the-woods with the Seattle skyline stamp and the Space Needle die cut all from Impress Stamps in Tukwila, WA. The picture doesn't do the card justice in that the little witch is flying across a glitter covered moon (made with adhesive spray and glitter). Love, love the gigantic spider trying to make a home on top the Needle! Thanks, Sandy, so enjoyed getting your card to let me know you were thinking of me this Halloween season!
My next card received was from my friend, Charlene. She used two stamps from Impress Stamps as well, and applied the chalkboard technique. She used white embossing powder to achieve this look. Mr. Skeleton wears a little pirate hat embellishment and a martini glass, which I understanding she garnered from online. See the cute little Googlie eye in the other stamped martini glass. Love those eyeball olives! Thank you, Charlene, for the wonderful chalkboard skeleton card!
