Mum's the Word. It was fun to play peek-a-boo with the blossoms and leaves of the open aperture Mat Stack 6 die.
Boutique Borders: Sympathy. I have been needing a stamp that says "I'm here for you". So often I just want to let people know they have my support. I teamed it up here with Coffee Cozy Detail Collection dies, the Aida Impression Plate, and the hoop from Stitched Sentiments. I had envisioned doing this particular treatment ever since I learned those dies were going to be released. Two inks of the frame from this month's Boutique Borders embellish my Topnotch Twill and Lace Bouquet helps to give it a bit of asymmetry, which was what was needed to break up all that evenness.
Basket of Blessings. Seriously, the spray of flowers is so appealing in it's folk art goodness. I stamped two in mirror image along a horizontal plane, and embossed resist in blue and gold. A die cut (Boutique Borders: Thank You) covers up any messy overlap of the images. A blue Copic marker added interest to just the leaves.
Apple Prints and Trick or Treat. I had to team these two up just because of the apple bobbing reference. As you can see, my apple is a little rotten at the core.:) The spider button (bought at Joann's last fall) works so well because you can almost be fooled into thinking his legs are the seeds. Only they aren't! Creepy. I stamped my apple in Scarlet Jewel over Pure Poppy cardstock to give it a more of a "poisoned apple" look.
Bubble Talk and Wonderful Words: Thank You. This came together in like 5 minutes flat. Got to file that away for a time when you need it. Coffee Cozy Detail Collection dies hang off the side to match the heart in the bubble.
Polka Dot Parade #7, Notched Star Banner, and Tricky Trio Dies. This was a fun one to create using Gold and Black shimmer paper, Tremendous Treats: Halloween, and the new Tremendous Treats: Halloween dies. Seems I have a thing for heat embossing this month.
That's is all she wrote. No time to rest, time to dive right into final preparations for Stamp-A-Faire! So much fun and goodness there.
