haunted halloween

At Halloween I like to make a few treat bags for granddaughters, friends, para's and other special people in my life.  This year I took a plain white treat sack and stamped the house, sentiment and witch from the Penny Black set "haunted halloween".  The house is colored with Copic N3 and a yellow in the windows.  The ink used was Versafine black (no not a copic ink).  When I colored it some of the ink smeared to help give the house a more rustic look which is hard to see in this picture.  Two holes were punched so the ribbon closes the bag with treats inside.  Hope you enjoy

Christian Occasions

A Confirmation card made using the A Jillian Vance stamp set "Christian Occasions".  This set has sentiments for several different occasions.  For this card the cross was fussy cut, but a die is available.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine black and clear embossed.  The cross was mounted on Bazzill paper cut with Spellbinder's "Pearl Effects".  A satin bow and small flowers help to finish the card.  Hope you enjoy

Wedding wishes

Happy World Card Making day.  I made this very simple wedding card for this day.  Materials used are black and white paper and the Inkadinkado stamp wedding/marriage.  The image was stampd with Versafine ink and clear embossed to give it more depth.  A spellbinder embossing folder was used for the background.  Spellbinder Majestic labels 25 and an oval finish off the card.  Add a ribbon and a card can be made in under 10 minutes.  Hope you enjoy.
