DAY 17: I’ve been blogging daily this month because there are so many cards to share with you!

These are two of the cards I made on World Card Making Day with the super cute paper from Doodlebug Design called  “Haunted Manor.

Halloween CardsSince these two cards were similar, I thought I’d blog about both of them in the same post or else you might have deja vu if I blogged about the other one on a different day.

2 Halloween CardsFor the first card, I punched out the little tags and strung them through some orange and white embroidery floss and attached the fiber inside the card with tape. Then, I stuck the tags into place with glue dots and used Liquid Glass to make each little character look glossy and embossed.

Goblin GreetingsI cut some striped purple washi tape like a serpent’s tongue and laid them down next to the stamped sentiment I embossed. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! but I’m not able to recall which stamp set it came from.

Goblin Greeting CardThis next card started as a white card and then I added some orange DCWV cardstock to the front and sanded the edges to create a distressed look. The smaller piece of patterned paper is 5″ x 3.75″ and I attached it after stamping the Stampin’ Up! sentiment, ribbon, buttons and tags threaded through the embroidery floss. I used bumpy gems to anchor the floss in place and added some Liquid Glass to help seal them to the card better.

Orange Halloween Tag CardI also used Liquid Glass, on the characters to make them glossy and more special.

Halloween Night Filled with DelightThank you for reading my blog, and have a fun-tastic day!

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.
