Step Away From the Pumpkins, Jody!


No, really... step away from the Penny Black pumpkins. LOL I am just LOVING it! LOL How about I make ALL my cards this month with this stamp? LOL NO... I promise I will step away very soon, maybe not quite yet... but soon! :)


As for the sewing, I cannot make the same promise. I am mildly obsessed. LOL Have you gotten a Janome sewing machine yet? If not... WHY NOT? I LOVE that little thing! It is a purchase I do not regret.


For this card, I put a tiny piece of adhesive down for the back layer and then sewed around it leaving an edge of patterned paper for me to pull up a little on the edges. I used the same lovely May Arts ruffled ribbon. Watch for that as part of a share in October. :) I also have some great other ribbons in the line-up. :) I used my quickie glue pen to outline a few parts of the pumpkins. Then I dumped some Art Institute pumpkin glitter (part of my current opaque share). Then, I grabbed a clean sponge and wiped away the "chunky" parts of the glitter leaving only smooth lines of glitter just to add a little bling to my card.

  8. OMGosh! Why do I NOT own this stamp????? I love it!!! Hope you are having a good day! I am bringing you an All About Manda page (6x6) when I come to SLC! Sorry I took forever and was a slacker. Maybe we can start swapping again in the new year after I get settled from moving.
