Stained Glass Sentiments and Cancer SUCKS!

I sent this card to a friend who lost her Grandmother this past year to cancer, and I'm posting it now to share that I lost my beautiful sister Elizabeth in November to cancer too. And just 5 days after her funeral I found out I have skin cancer and had surgery in December. That's why I haven't been posting on my blog for the last two months. While I had the honor of being my sisters caregiver for her first two battles with cancer and now for her 3rd and final battle, my life is forever changed without her in my world. 
I am devastated.

I will be posting more regularly again soon but please bear with me as the posts may be sporadic for a while. I'm sharing this card with you today because, well, I feel that the sentiment speaks for itself. 

Thank you to all my wonderful card making friends, and followers who have been so loving and supportive during one of the most awful and difficult times of my life. I can't say enough what it means to me. Thank you for letting me share this very personal and emotional time with you.

I wanted to keep this card clean an simple so that the sentiment was prominent. So I started with sponging on yellow and orange inks onto the Mini Cloud Background stamp and stamped it onto plain white card stock. Then just cut it out without leaving any border around it.

I stamped the Stained Glass Sentiment in the bottom right area on top of the clouds. 
I used the Shaker Maker Rectangle die set and cut out a black frame and placed it over the sentiment. I like how this gives the illusion of the background being two pieces but it's not.

To complete my card I added cut a piece of an Adhesive Foam Sheet to the back and placed it on a white card base.

I'm usually a very private person, but life is short and I want to be sure that I let you all know just how much I appreciate all the love and support you've shown me. 
THANK YOU from the bottom of my broken heart.
And I hope 2020 is a HEALTHY and HAPPY one for all of us. 
Good riddance 2019!

Got Peepers Halloween

It's my favorite day of the year but it always makes me a little sad when posting my final Halloween card of the season. 
I hope everyone has a FRIGHTFULLY fun Halloween tonight!

For my spooky little kitty card, I started off by using the Star Galaxy stencil and sponged white ink onto a black matte.

Then I used the circle from the Shaker Maker Combo die as a frame around the main image. 

For the main image I stamped the fence and tree branch from the Attempted Murder set and colored them with Copic markers. 

For the Got Peepers kitty I stamped him twice, once sitting on the fence, and then again on a scrap piece of card stock. I colored the scrap one with pencils and (yikes!) cut off his head (well, after all this is a Halloween post). I popped that up on foam tape and placed it over the fence stamped image for a little extra dimension.

The pumpkins are from the Build a Pumpkin Patch die set. I just sponged a little ink on the edges and colored the stems with a brown marker and tucked them into the edge.

Once I had the main image completed I stamped the sentiment and matted everything onto a light blue card base.

Addicted to Halloween

For my post today I combined some new, and some older Whimsy products to turn the Addicted to Rubber Stamps t-shirt into a Halloween t-shirt. I'm addicted to both rubber stamps, and Halloween so it was the perfect match up.

I first used the new Wavy Pierced Rectangle die to cut out a piece of kraft color cardstock. Then stamped it with brown ink using one of my favorite go-to stamps the Burlap Background.

I stamped the Addicted to Rubber Stamps t-shirt with black ink on orange cardstock, then colored in the bands with a black marker, and sponged the edges with orange ink.
The perfectly sized kitty cat is from the Goth Girl stamp set, and the bats and sentiment are from the Halloweeners stamp set.

I used the new Happy Halloween word die and cut it out 3 times from black cardstock and stacked up the 3 layers for extra dimension.

The pumpkin is from the Headless Horseman set, colored with pencils and fussy cut out. The leaves are from the Build-a-Pumpkin Patch die set with sponged ink on them.

To complete my card I matted everything onto a black card base.
I hope you all are enjoying the Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween festivities, there are still prizes to be had including the $100 grand prize!
