Let's Party!

I am a huge fan of CZ Design; I adore her use of different fonts and the little bit of snark she adds to most of her stamp sets.  You can only get them at Simon Says Stamp but that isn't a bad thing since I always need at least a few things from them! I scored this stamp and die set last year after Halloween was over so while I have had it this is my first time using it.  Now, this is my kind of party!

Ghost Close Up
This is a simple black and white design, but the sparkle of the ghosts gives it a little something extra.  Using the Halloween People stamp set, I started by stamping the sentiment and all the bats with black ink on white card then cut them using the matching die. I stamped the saying directly onto the card and added the sentiment and bats with dimensional dots.  I stamped the ghosts out with clear embossing ink and used WOW! Hologram Sparkle embossing powder to make them shine and cut them with their coordinating die and used dimensional dots on them as well. I finished the card off with a few black sequins I had in my stash.  By the way, you can purchase the stamps and dies separately; the link I used will take you to the bundle.  While this isn't a typical clean and simple card, I still think it fits the criteria of CAS.  I hope you like my card and hope to see you soon!

Oh Look! {WARNING Adult Humor}

 If you a regular reader of my blog, or a Facebook friend, you know I like some snarky stuff.  Well, a friend of mine knows how much I adore a bit of sass and she sent me a picture of this stamp set.  I loved it so much I HAD to buy it - I hope you get a laugh out of it; I sure did!

 WARNING: Adult Language to Follow - please do not continue if you are offended by naughty words!

 OK - if you haven't moved on by now you should be prepared for adult humor!

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Whimsy Stamps, Meme Oh Look, #CWSD366
Patterned Paper from Authentique, DAME, 6" x 6" pad, #CDA011 {available}
Die-Namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX

Watercolor Paper {I use this}
Clean Color Brush Markers
Gina K Amalgam Ink Pad in Obsidian Ink

This was an easy card; what I did first was stamp the image directly onto some watercolor card, colored it with my Zigs then die cut it with the wonky rectangle die.  I wanted to make the card seem old fashioned so I picked a patterned paper that reminded me of the 1950's, trimmed it and attached that to the card base.  Finally I glued the image onto the card base and I was done! Judging from the number of people who commented on the stamp, and the others in Whimsy Stamps "Meme" collection I am not the only one who found the humor in this image!

I hope you like the card and got a chuckle out of it.  My biggest issue now is who do I send it to; and that's because I can think of SO many people who need this card! LOL Thanks for stopping by! Fondly, Christi
