And even more cards.

Here's a card I did tonight with my NEW A Muse stamps (that is my second most favorite phrase in the world, the first being "free new a muse stamps"! Duh!). I have had this card in my head for weeks now and am so relieved to have finally made this card. It was so much fun to make.

First a few comments on the card ... I outlined everything with my almost amethyst SU marker. I think it added a really nice, kinda weird glow. There's glitter on the edges of the ghosts and dotting the witch and clear glaze on the bottle. The orange ribbon and the orange harlequin PLP match in real life, honest! This whole card was made possible by contributions from my stamp-a-ma-jig and inspiration from superstar stamper Lexi Daly (who had the great idea to have the ghosts emerging from a [poison] bottle --see her card here.)

Deets: All images, ribbon and orange harlequin paper by A Muse; all other paper, ink and glitter by Stampin' Up!, clear glaze and quickie glue pen by sakura.

Here are the two cards I made for my neighbor (aka my best and only customer!) last week. She wanted ones similar to cards I made here and here. I obliged but also changed things up. I think she was happy with these too. Thanks to Tisha (the bomb!) for the eyelet/ribbon idea. I felt like something was missing on the last card and this totally worked!

Deets: All images by A Muse; All paper, ink, IIEP and ribbon by SU!; silver sparkle and stardust gel pen by sakura; oval and circle punches by SU, rectangle punch (layered twice) by marvy; eyelets by WeR, copper stickles.

This card is pretty straight up.

Deets: All images by Stamping Bella; patterned paper by Luxe(?); rest of paper, ribbon and ink by SU, brads by american crafts, key tag punch by SU, scalloped oval punches by marvy, clear glaze and stardust gel pen by sakura.

Thanks, as ever, for visiting.
