I'm back !! I had a great time in Montreal this weekend. I was beat out with work and everything, but it was still great !! I was sure glad to get home Sunday night though (well, Monday morning ... I walked into my house at 2:02am. OUCH !!) Tomorrow is Hallowe'en which means its also my BIRTHDAY !! YAY !! Even though I will be turning 29 (for the first time ... hahaha) I still LOVE my birthday !! So, I have one more Hallowe'en card to show you today !! This one is a bit more "elegant" and grown-up. What do you think ??
I love how classy this card is !! And also how easy. The color combo of Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Old Olive, Basic Gray and Elegant Eggplant also SCREAMS Hallowe'en. Hahaha. Get it ?? Screams !?!? I am so funny. LOL Anyways, this card uses two stamp sets, and they are both Hostess sets !! The Wacky Wishes is a total must have covering a bunch of holidays and occasions and is a hostess set from the Annual Catalogue. That font is SO fun !! Love it. The other set is Mixed Medley and is in the Holiday Catalogue. All of the images in that set co-ordinate with either the 3/4" Circle punch or the brand new 1-1/4" Scallop Circle punch. The images in this set are versatile as well, including Halloween, Christmas, Birthday, Valentines and more !!
This layout has been circling the Stampin' Up! world for a while, and I love how simple and sweet it is! The banners are all made from DSP from the Color Family Stacks. They weren't all exactly even on the top, but the strip of 1/2" Basic Black Scallop Dots ribbon hides any imperfection or crookedness. So great ! My "Treats for Boo" image used a bunch of punches for layering. They are 3/4" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Scallop Circle punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch and 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. I think it turned out so great !!
I hope you like todays card !! I know most people don't send out Hallowe'en cards, but I think any occasion is a great time to show someone you have been thinking of them and to wish them a Happy Hallowe'en !! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
