Hey friends. I am back from beautiful Colorado and ready to get back into my Artsy Studio. We had a great time but just like Dorothy says, "There's no place like home." Definitely true for this Kansas girl! I'm feeling pretty much back to normal from my surgery too, thank you so much for all the well wishes and inquiries. I go back to the doctor today to get my staples out so hopefully I'll get signed off for normal activities here soon. Don't tell my family that though. I've been milking the "but I've just had minor surgery" gig and don't want it to end quite yet. ;) I've gotten great mileage out of that!
How about another card for today using Friendship Jar Fall Fillers? What a great response to this set, I'm glad you love it as much as I do. Nichole did a fantastic job with bringing my little chicken scratches to life. And I hear you want a Christmas/Winter fillers set, huh? Well, I can't let the cat out of the jar but we'll see what we can do. ;)Today I have a whimsical Halloween card to share. I've taken you through school cards, Fall cards and now Halloween cards with this new Fall Filler set. Aren't the eyeballs just the craziest ever? When sketching out ideas for this set, my mind took me to all things spooky and Halloween-y. I thought that a simple little addition of an eyeball center would be great for the marbles. I can't wait to make more projects with the eyeballs because I love to freak the kids out for Halloween.
For the jar, I used the original Friendship Jar stamp and the pennant topper stamp and coordinating die. I then stamped the marbles and added red eyeball centers to each circle. The background of the card is equally fun. I stamped the label image from Tiny Treats: Halloween with Smoky Shadow ink, then layered on some October Afternoon paper in an orange floral....then topped that with a die cut label from the new Fall Fillers set that has a new dotted border stamp. Don't forget to use these label images from all the sets in a mixy matchy fashion. They are so versatile and can be used on all sorts of projects, not just for the stamp set they originally come with. I finished off my card with some Simply Chartreuse ribbon and more PTI patterned paper.
Here are the Copic colors that I used to color my jar with:
Well, I'm off to see the Wizard. Ha ha. Love the Wizard of Oz. Speaking of that, stay tuned for a delightful new card using Friendship Jar Fall Fillers and the adorable witches feet image.....my mind is a thinkin' of something fun!
