Good morning my lovely crafty addicts!
Have you been seeing signs of Fall upon us in your neck of the woods? Here in Oregon, our leaves are already beginning to turn and yes it has rained a few days this week...definitely signs Summer is almost over!
I'm so excited today, because this will be my official first card designed for the Magnolia-Licious Stamps DT!! I still can't believe it. Such a fun job I tell ya and I hope I can inspire you too along the way!!
Since it's almost Fall and it seems my favorite holiday besides Christmas is just right around the corner, I've created a Halloween card with a Wee Stamps cutie!! I went to Walmart the other day and they already have Halloween decorations out!! I do love it though!
I gotta say, I really LOVE the way the colors turned out on this one! I used one of my many Recollections paper pads for the color combo inspiration.
You can find this absolutely adorable Wee stamp in the Magnolia_Licious shop HERE! It's called Batty Boo...I just love that name, so cute!
And I tried something a little different for my background. I was going for a night sky watercolor effect. So I played around a bit with my dark C colors then went add it with my Colorless blender pen LOL. I need a little more practice at it, But I'm actually happy with the way this turned out.
Can you believe, I actually got this gorgeous flower from the Dollar Store!! I love browsing the Dollar Store sometimes, because there's always lots of little goodies you can use as embellishments when thinking outside the box! I actually took apart some flower arrangements I bought there and stacked a bunch of the flowers and some leaves together, snapped a brad in and called it good, LOL.
I used a cute little border stamp for the inside that came with the sentiment on the outside of the card from Making Memories "Spellbound" set.
