DAY 20: Welcome to the twentieth day of consecutive blog posts from me!

Today’s featured card is another one I made on World Card Making Day. I used some paper from Doodlebug Design’s “Haunted Manor” paper collection (the purple background and the “Spooky” sentiment) for this card.  blog - SpookyI found some scrap green cardstock and used a cute jack-o-lantern stamp from Stampin’ Up! but there was an extra pumpkin or two that were going to bleed off the page. I just covered up the ones I didn’t want to stamp with some Scotch tape so that when I inked up the stamp, only the pumpkins I wanted to use were inked. Then, I peeled off the tape and discarded it before pressing the stamp into my paper. The card needed something, so I used my  Liquid Embossing fluid to add some shiny black dots to the left of the pumpkins.

blog - Spooky PumpkinsI taped the patterned paper to the green cardstock and wrapped ribbon around the seam, then used some cute brads (from Hobby Lobby) that look like buttons for the top corners. Finally, I attached this to the card and then used some double-sided foam adhesive to pop “Spooky” off the page.

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.
