Happy Weekend!  It’s been a little crazy around here this week . . . with projects I can’t show you yet.  Don’t you just hate it when I say something like that?  We’ve got another baby shower tomorrow . . . I can’t wait to see all the cute baby things!  Little girls clothes are just the cutest . . .

I worked up a couple of Halloween cards today, the first one cutesy and the second one grungy!  I’m showing you the second one today because I like it better than the first and actually made this one to replace the cutesy one.  Mallory likes the cutesy one (she says its different than my normal work), so I’ll probably show that one to you next week.

I had in mind to work with the Quietfire Designs Halloween! Wicked Collection, and for some reason I pulled out the Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Collection to go with.  Hmmmmm maybe it has something to do with Wicked . . .


Jack was stamped in Archival Jet Black on watercolor paper and then water colored with Faded Jeans, Scattered Twigs and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  I made a mask of Jack with Eclipse Tape, and then stamped over the image with a sentiment from the Quietfire set in Sepia Archival.

Once the image had been die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Ovals, it was sponged with Antique Linen and just a hint of Vintage Photo around the outer edge.  The ghost paper behind Jack was die cut with Spellbinders Grand Square, placed on an angle.

The seam binding was dyed with the same ink used to watercolor with . . . with a smidgen of Black Soot added.  All the edges of the paper were distressed with my favorite distressing tool, my scissors!

Well, I guess that’s all for me!  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures that come your way!

  1. Love your card. Seeing your work really makes me think about giving cards a try, though I would have no idea where to start.

  2. We don’t celebrate Halloween here in the UK to the same axtent as in US, but I think your card is great. Clever use of Pumkin Jack stamp for Halloween. Your colouring is lovely as usual Sherry.
    Enjoy the baby shower, I love the gorgeous array of super cute baby girl clothes too and am still always amazed how small we all start out.
    Sorry if you get this twice, I sent this before but I had to take my blog link out of the website box, when I clicked post comment, a message said my comment would be flagged as spam.

  3. Extremely cute girl!

  4. I love this card, Sherry! Such a cute image, and just enough grunge. Enjoy your baby shower!

  5. Great card, we don’t really have Halloween here in Australia, (I am trying). Our daughter spent a year in the states working as a au pair and absolutely loved Halloween. I hope you had a great time at the baby shower, grandaughters are wonderful, ours turns one in october and she is an angel. Well most of the time, I get to look after her a couple of days a week while mum is back at work part time. She is going to be joined by a little sister in January! I know you will love every minute of being a grandma.

  6. I love your way with vintage glitter, german glass. I’ll try this idea.
