A few more Halloween cards

I had fun making two Halloween cards for two very special little grandchildren.  I was so proud of myself for using my 6x6 paper stash, an embossing folder and stamps that I already had also.

Happy Halloween!

Unity FWF Halloween

I've missed one or two FWF Fridays...shame on me.  But this week I finally got a few Halloween cards made and mailed.  This one is for a dear friend in Cincinnati...I don't think she'll look here before it arrives...yes, I am late with hers.  Sigh.

Anyway, this fun "Toxic" label comes from the September KOTM, "happy, thankful & blessed".  That set has so many useful holiday related stamps.  I've really enjoyed playing with this kit.

Embossing in white embossing powder and then coloring with permanent markers (Sharpies, Copics, Spectrum Noir)
is a great way to use black and other dark colored card stock.  The inks look like they are illuminated against the black background.

Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween!

Unity FWF Friday

I have a new and fabulous Unity stamp called Floral Frenzy.   It's new to me anyway.  A fine line drawing that asks for so many ways to use it.  I played around with assorted inks and papers but for FWF I chose to do it up in Copics since I've been taking the OCC class on Copics for Card Makers.

I am doing this at the eleventh hour and naturally my Aperture program decided there was a problem and is doing a backup.  So the likelihood of this getting in on time is low.  Never the less I am quite in love with this stamp and will use it in many ways.

Whew!  I found another way to get it in on time...yay!  But I wasn't able to "enhance" it in any way.  Oh well.

"Thank You" is also Unity.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment:)

Unity FWF Friday

This is a double header for me.  Not only did I use all Unity stamps but the little girl is colored with Copic markers which qualifies also for the OCC Copic Markers for Card Makers class.

Stamps used:  You're My Bestie,  Better. Somewhere. Today. and KOTM "the best is yet to be".  I love to mix up my Unity stamps to create a whole, unique look.  "Arigato" is from Hero Arts.
