Cactus hello

This card is for no special reason. I like the September freebie stamp set from My Favorite Things so much that I just started stamping them with no plan really. LOL These pieces are what I had laying on the table, so I figured I might as well make them into a card. I like it! What do you think?

"Hello" die and cactus stamps from My Favorite Things. Both were freebies this month, so you'll have to watch the store to see if/when they'll be available for purchase! :)

MFT Sketch Challenge #401

I've missed the last few sketch challenges, but this one is actually on time! Using the September freebie stamp set (adorable cacti, aren't they), here is my entry.

Usually I will stamp a couple of times when using distress inks, but I really liked the look of the distress here so I left them after one impression. It looks almost like diffused light on the sides of the pots, doesn't it. Also, this set does not have coordinating dies, so these are fussy cut (gasp!), something I am not usually fond of doing. LOL!!

And how fun is this?! I received this personalized note with my order. How sweet! This is how awesome the staff is at My Favorite Things. Every single one of them. Really genuinely nice people. 💓Thank you, Danny!

Tunnel Card - Halloween style

Thanks to the genius of Jennifer McGuire, I am getting much more comfortable with some new and "fancier than usual" card techniques. Her videos are fabulous and I encourage you to check them out, either on her blog site (linked above) or her youtube channel. Today's halloween card is a tunnel card with an extra little surprise inside. Check it out.

The bat from the My Favorite Things, Witch Way is the Candy set is my fave. Isn't he cute.

The inside is a "tunnel" with lots of fun things tucked into each layer.

The bare tree and stick/branch/bush thingies (technical term) lend a bit of spooky to the scene along with the skull and crossbones. The moon and bats are perfect for a dark Halloween night, and of course the pumpkin is a must.

And the biggest surprise inside -- a glow in the dark moon!!! The photo turned out exceptionally better than I expected it would in the darkness of my bathroom, LOL but isn't it cool?! After several fails, this one turned out pretty good, I'd say.

Thanks for coming by. Comments are welcomed! Be sure to check out the Scrapendipity FB page and Instagram accounts as well.
