.... If you've got Claire's fabulous Cicely at Halloween set - you'll recognise the title. It's the opening line of the sweet poem that Claire included in the set - and I was totally inspired by Renee's card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC116. The sketch was designed by the Chief Mouse herself - Claire Brennan!!!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Cicely at Halloween, Halloween Party, Wanda's Pantry
Inks: Distress - Walnut Stain, Dried Marigold
Spellbinders: Small Labels (S4-169) #4, Large Labels (S4-168) #4
Accessories: Core'dinations card; Cuttlebug EF - Pumpkin Harvest; Burlap, ribbon and card from stash
I took inspiration for my card from Renee and I wanted to add lots of texture. I started by adding some colour to the card base with my blending tool. Then I embossing some Core'dinations card with the Pumpkin Harvest EF, sanded to reveal the colour and added some burlap and ribbon, then attached it to the card with dimensional tape. I stamped the little pumpkins and the bats onto white card (using the second impression for a soft image). I cut out the card with the Labels die and while in the die added a touch of colour and stamped the image. I cut a mat for the sentiment from the Core'dinations card and added a tab onto which I stamped the lizard. Love this lizard!
I had a super time yesterday - got lots done. I finished off cataloguing my new stamps and dies, tidied the craft room. It's great - you can see the floor again!! But you'll have to wait to see some of the cards :) That's all for today - I think! Thanks for stopping by - I really do appreciate it.
