While at Convention this past July, this project was shown by the very talented, Brent Steele using our Decor Elements Spooky Things (120909/120296 $14.95) from pg. 8 of the Holiday Mini Catalog.. I fell in love with it & just had to make one for myself! I added some Sizzix die cut Leaves #2(113459 $15.95) and embossed them with the Finial Press embossing folder (115963 $7.95) for a bit of added texture.
Be sure to check in tomorrow for a Fast & Fabulous Friday project using more of the Spooky Things Decor Elements!

Today's card is my swap for tonight's Stamp Club. I used Crumb Cake Craft* ink & my acrylic block for the base of the card. I then stamped the leaf fron the Paisley Prints stamp set (w120817 $16.95 - c121121 $12.95) in More Mustard and then lightly sponged the top with Bravo Burgundy before stamping onto cardstock. I ran More Mustard & Bravo Burgundy thru the Sizzix die cut machine using the Leaves #2 die (113459 $15.95) then ran the leaves thru the Perfect Polka Dot (117335 $7.95) & Manhattan Flower (114517 $7.95) embossing folders. I finished it off with the sentiment in Crumb Cake Craft*. *Remember to emboss or heat set craft to speed drying time~

Today's project is not a card, but a napkin! With the Sizzix Big Shot, you can put almost any texture/material thru to emboss/die cut. Check this out:

Today's card features a fun way to add fabric & texture to your cards. Add strips of fabric in place of ribbon! By simply tearing the fabric (rather than cutting), you get a torn, shabby, vintage look that has a bit of elegance, too! The fabric shown is from the NEW Deck the Halls Designer Fabric from the Holiday Mini Catalog (121715 - $9.95). The Elements of Style stamp set is from pg. 133 of the IBC (w118611 $27.95 - c120045 $19.95).

Each Friday, I will bring you a quick & easy (Fast & Fabulous) card that you can create in under 5 minutes! Here is the first of many to come!
The card features the Fifth Avenue Floral (113734 - $24.95) stamp set along with Baja Breeze & Crumb Cake ink. This is one of my favorite color combinations! I did a little masking so that it appears that some of the flowers are behind others... I topped it off with a Whisper White 5/8" organza ribbon bow (114319 - $5.95/15 yds) & a little tag from the Tiny Tags stamp set (w118091 $22.95 - c118592 $16.95) in Baja Breeze cardstock & Crumb Cake ink. Thanks for looking!
