Now on to the cards to share today.

Halloween Cards

Card 1


Card 2



For the first cards (which are two cards with same idea just a slight variation) i was thinking about the window of a haunted house. I started with the Pebble cardstock and cut out a window with a Nestibilities die.    To cut the window frame from Slate cardstock, i use the same Nestibilities die plus the next size up.  I then cut strips of Slate cardstock to make the window slats.   On the outside I stamped the spider web and sentiment from 'Too Cute To Spook".  On the inside I stamped the ghost and bats also from 'Too Cute To Spook' and the sentiment from 'Spooky Boo Day'.  To add a little 'Boo' to the ghost, i covered him in Diamond Glitter.  Isn't he (or she) cute?  On the front of the bottom of second card, I used the left over slate paper from cutting the window frame to add an embellishment to the bottom.  Is it a fence? Broken house framing?  Use your imagination....I did :)

Christmas Card


One of the many things I love about A*Muse Studio is all the great ideas we get for cards and projects.  This card came with our Holiday Workshop Bundle.  A|S just makes it so easy for us with step by step instructions to help you get started and get inspired.  The card base is Vanilla cardstock, layered with Cherry and Vanilla cardstock.  The images and sentiment for this card are from the 'Nordic Noel' stamp set. The deer stamped in Wasabi ink.  Fern and Cranberry ink were used for the leaves and berries.  The sentiment is also stamped in Cranberry ink.  Washi Tape from the new holiday assortment was added to the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed the cards I shared today.  Please visit again for more ideas and the latest A*Muse News.

Now on to your next stop Pamela's blog.
