September Stamp-A-Stack Card #1

Sorry for the long absence…life has been hectic again the last few weeks! Between the new puppy, Chase being back in school, jury duty, and trying to keep up with daily life, there hasn’t been a lot of extra time. Especially with not much sleep! Thankfully Gypsy is sleeping thru the night now and not making a mess in her crate!

We did have a Stamp-A-Stack on the 17th, but I completely forgot to share the cards! Here’s the first one:

HalloweenOwl

I don’t send out Halloween cards. Now that all the kids in my family are too old (14-24) for trick-or-treating, we don’t really celebrate it. We don’t get any trick-or-treaters because of where our farm is (along the highway, not much around us) so if I buy any candy we end up eating it all ourselves. Usually we close all the blinds and watch TV. Pretty boring!

Anyway, there are so many cute Halloween stamps I can’t resist making a few cards to share! I rec’d this card in a swap and it’s made by Dawn O. This little guy is from the hostess set “Warmest of Wishes” in the Holiday Mini Catalog. This is a great set with images for several holidays. The owl is stamped in Basic Black, beak and goodie bag colored with Pumpkin Pie, then punched with the Owl Punch and layered on a piece of Whisper White. The orange layer is embossed with the Spider Web folder. I love how Dawn did the ribbon- a piece of Basic Black 1/2” Scalloped Dots with Pumpkin Pie 1/4” Grosgrain tied in a knot around it. What a clever way to get 2 colors!

Check back tomorrow for Card #2!
