Fun Friday

Wow... this week has really gone by fast!! Maybe its because the weather in Houston is getting a little better and I have been enjoying the outside more these past few days. It's still warm but there is a breeze and the mosquitoes are not waiting to attack you as soon as you step out the door..eeekkk! I swear this summer the little buggers had a picnic on my legs.
Since Halloween is quickly approaching I have these two cards to share with you today. They feature some new clear stamps I bought at Archivers a few weeks back. The adorable little Dracula was the main reason I bought them. He is so CUTE! I also used some Halloween rub-ons that I bought from Hobby Lobby last year. I was determined to use them since they had sat on my shelf for way to long. Card stock used on the first card is SU Eggplant, Plum, Olive, Black, Gray, WW, and Chatterbox PP. The ribbon is May Arts and SU. I added crystal effects on the Dracula's cape and hair. Other stamps used is SU Cheesecloth background. The owl card has SU Rust, Olive, Chocolate Chip, and WW card stock. The ribbon is May Arts and SU along with the brads. The white rub-ons are from Basic Gray.

Tomorrow I have an SU card to share so make sure to take a peak. Well, that's about it for today so have a great Friday!!
Hugs, Ana

Ana: I love your cards...I bought the same Halloween set at Archivers....but I have to say, I cannot get it to stamp as clearly as you did. My stamped images are very unclear - no matter what I do - and I was thinking of throwing the whole set away! Any words of advice on this? Your images are awesome! Thanks for sharing.

What cute stamps! and great cards! Wish we had a store like that on the east coast!!! Great find! TFS!

Melissa said...

These are very very nice cards! Love them!

Ana said...

Hi sherryann!!
Thank you for the comment. Regarding your question I use a white gel pen for the faux stitching. First I use my SU paper piercing mat (a stitching template which requires a pointy stylus to poke the holes) and then connect the dots with a white gel pen. Hope that helps.
