Card of the Week


A Little Halloween Fun

 Last week, Eleonor blogged about finding a spider in the bottom of a box of craft supplies, it was very amusing.  So in honor of her bravery, I created this as card of the week. The paper is from Memory Box stamped and distressed in black.  The glittered spider (a Martha punch) is dangling in a foam tape mounted window created with a Poppystamps' die.

Card of the Week

The first thing I did was cut out "MERRY" in red card and "CHRISTMAS" in white card using the Memory Box Classic Upper Alphabet.  Mount the "CHRISTMAS" on a strip of red card.  I recommend using something like Aleene's Tacky Glue, the drying time gives you a chance to finesse the letters.  I then positioned the red strip on the card, where I wanted it,  and drew a pencil line across the top before I set the red strip aside. I stamped the middle bear first with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then positioned the other bears accordingly at slightly varying heights. To finish, I glued the red letters and the red strip in place.

Card of the Week

Shimmer Sheetz Background

Love the back ground on the card of the week? Here's how it is done.  Emboss Blue Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. This only works with the Iridescent colours. Place Be Creative tape on white card stock. Remove backing from the tape and put the embossed piece of Shimmer Sheetz on the tape with the embossed side up. Burnish the Shimmer Sheetz and   then remove it from the tape you will see that the 'shimmer' stays behind on the tape.  Sprinkle Clear Highlight glitter over the piece, brush it off and burnish it. I then adhered it to a turquoise mat and then a white card.  To finish it, I added a white die cut "Tivoli Snowflake" and stamped "Merriest Holiday Season" 
from Memory Box.
