Today I wanted to play with a Penny Black stamp that I won from the very talented and extremely kind Elizabeth Allan! The wooden stamp is called "The Horror Team" and it actually has three little Halloween characters on it which you can work with individually if you want. So that's what I did, I used just two of the little guys and made a little card....
Paper: notecard (The Paper Studio); purple cardstock (unknown); Neenah Solar White
Ink: Versamark; Copic markers; Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Penny Black (The Horror Team; Circular Design); Lawn Fawn (Heebie Jeebies - sentiment
Other: Hemp; Glossy Accents; Black embossing powder; Black enamel accent; dimensional tape
I wish I could take better photos, I really need to take a photography course!
I stamped the purple cardstock with the Circular Design and embossed it with black embossing powder (love the stark black against the purple). And then, a lot of fussy cutting! The hats, the pumpkin, the balloon and one hand on each critter is popped up with dimensional tape. In retrospect, I should maybe not have pieced the hats, but once it was done there was no turning back.
I hand made the sentiment tab using a corner chomper.
They are just the cutest little guys! I think this one is going in a box for my daughter.
I have started a little box where every now and then, whilst I am in my craft room and perhaps just sitting and thinking about the ones I love, I just make a little card for my daughter with the bits and pieces lying around on my table and I just write her a note about whatever is on my mind. It's for her, later, when life is different, when she has all grown up or when I am no longer around, just little love notes, so she knows that even when she was not here, or when she was asleep, I was thinking of her.
Do any of you do something similar perhaps?
Sending you all lots of love and wishing you a wonderful day! And hugs to my new followers, you make me happy.
