I'm so pleased you stopped by today because it's time for another Basic Grey Challenge and my wonderful teamie Tara G has provided us with a perfect sketch which I'm sure you'll enjoy playing with! The thing I love when we all make our cards for the challenge is that everyone's interpretation is so different. And that's how it's supposed to be really, because the sketch is there for a guide and everyone can then add something individual to it.
As always, Simon Says Stamp are generously giving us $25 to give to the winner, so please join in and show us your stunning creations..... oh and don't forget that applications for our DT call must be in today!! Good luck!!!
I used one of Magnolia's older Halloween images for my card and chose the fabulous Basic Grey Eerie papers to work with. So the traditional mix of purple, green and orange evolved..... you wouldn't normally dream of putting these together would you, but somehow they just work at this time of year! I added an embossed panel with a Pumpkin cuttlebug folder and some webbed edging with a Martha Stewart punch, and finally a Sizzix Bigz die was used to create the swirls. And for once my camera managed to pick up some Stickles sparkle on Tilda's clothes...... YAY!!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
