Spooktacular Halloween - TGF Style!

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Good Morning!

I thought I'd show you what I had created a few weeks back for my friend Kadie's The Greeting Farm card swap on SCS. I had to whip it up fast since I knew I would have no time to work on them later in the month, so I used the old Weekend Sketch Challenge (WSC95). You might recognise it; I used it on this card around the same time I was working on these.


It was such a quick and easy layout that I thought it would be perfect for the swap. I colored up six little mummies from The Greeting Farm's Spooktacular set (love their big heads! hehe) with Distress Inks and then cut them out using the Labels One Nesties. Then matted them onto some black cardstock and hand cut the 1/16" border (if anyone knows of an easier way to do this, PLEASE tell me! LOL) Then the other panels were sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink and I used up some more of that black glitter paper I found at Michaels. Doesn't look that spectacular in this photo, but IRL....ooo how it sparkles! :D

You should see the cards I got in return in this swap!! Whoa! You can really tell that TGF fans truly love these stamps and have a blast stamping with them! I even got an Amy original!! I'm pretty dang happy about that!

By the way, I've updated my store with some more recent cards, so take a peek and if you like something, just leave a comment. :) Thanks so much for stopping by.

It was so fun to see this IRL!! I can't offer any help, as I mat mine and then cut to fit too...thus is the toil we card makers endure :) Love this card and love the papers you used. It's hard to tell that the black paper is sparklie, but it is and it's awesome!

Oh, I got one of these too! I was so excited to see it on your blog! It is so fabulous!! That black glittery paper is gorgeous, and the little mummy with the big noggin is colored to perfection! DH picked it right up out of the stack, and said "This is awesome!" Enough said! When he says it's awesome... IT'S AWESOME!!
