I know... another Halloween card but hey I'm running out of time - and i've got a lot of cute Halloween stamps.
Seems every year I find some new stamps, buy them - sure that I'll make cards and then...I run out of time. This year I'm determined to use 'em!
And i think i really like these Purple Onion Designs Halloween Border Tapes. There are two different sentiments - the one here "Happy Hallowen" and the "Trick or Treat".
I'm also trying to use what I have - in terms of paper and cardstock. I have tons of cardstock scraps - every color of the rainbow - nicely filed in my cardstock scrap files (organized by color of course). And I have tons of patterned paper (also arranged by color and, in this case, by holiday.) so I just went to the stash and found this Creative Imaginations paper (by Debbie Mumm). Ran the orange cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder. Throw in some tape to put it all together and I was done. Easy but cute card!
(yes ... i broke down and bought the Cuttlebug. It was 50% off and I said "SOLD". I was using my Cuttlebug embossing folders with my zipemate - it worked ok but it was getting more and more difficult. And these days I'm over anything that gives me a struggle. And I gotta tell you - that Cuttlebug just makes it soooooo easy. Runs that embossing folder right on thru with not a speck of resistance. That's what I'm talkin about.) I will make a few more of this card as I've got a bit more of that paper.
This is a bad precedent to set - 2 posts in one day but I'm doing it. I have to go into work tomorrow (Saturday... blasphemy) and I've got an eye doctor appointment after that - finally doing something I need (I'm bad at that but I'm workin on it). Talk to you soon!
