DAY 15: I’m on a roll! I’m half-way through my month of daily blog posts.

My plan was to share older cards I’d made, but these last four are hot off the press! This card was pulled together quite quickly because I started with some black cardstock, then tore up some Halloween colored washi tape and laid them down on the card, to start with.

Trick or TreatThen, I used one of the cut-outs from the “Haunted Manor” paper from Doodlebug Design and attached it to the card with double-sided foam adhesive to pop it off the page. To make the card more special, I used Liquid Embossing fluid to add some shiny black dots on the sentiment.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
