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.
