a birthday card and some halloween fun!


hi everyone! hope you're having a great weekend! it's been a super busy week and i'm just getting around to  blogging a Halloween post! oh well- better late than never right?

my sweet sister in-law's birthday falls right before Halloween on the 28th-i think she's so lucky! i would've loved having a birthday/Halloween party every year!! This is the card i made for her.  i just love this sweet digital set drawn by Christy Croll at TiddlyInks. I use my inkjet printer and print directly onto a sheet of XPress It blending card- it works great for digis and coloring with copics!
I used happy colors and papers and my new MFT Circle Stax Sets 1 & 2 for the panel & the mat- LOVE!! I used a BG10 copic marker around the edges of her wings, then added stickles right on top for pretty sparkle! I popped up the focal and accent heart with boosters and i used a touch of felt and some hemp cord too!

here's a peek at the inside- i repeated the papers and hearts & stamped a simple message. 
and a look at the dimension the front:

 

deets:
stamps: I used digital images from the set  Happy Bugg and Extras  by Christy Croll/TiddlyInks, the inside sentiment was created using MFT's By the Numbers stamp and dienamics set.
ink: memento tux black
paper: XPress It copic blending card, MFT cardstock in Razzle Berry, cream scalloped A2 note card (my stash), My Mind's Eye patterned paper (from Lime twist Life of the party 6x6 pad, sweet cupcake)
accessories: MFT dienamics (Circle Stax Set 1, Circle Stax Set 2, Hearts-a-plenty) copic markers, stickles, MFT whip cream felt, MFT hemp cord, a button from my stash, jody's awesome boosters

& here's some Halloween fun pics to catch you up a bit! As room parent of my daughter's 2nd grade class we had a huge class party. we also attended a private halloween party last week too! the kids loved their lollipop treats i shared with you in this post and i had fun making a 'puking' pumpkin (ranch dip for the veggies) and roasting sesame seeds. Mimi and i were zombies this year- so FUN!



 


thanks for looking!
see you soon!
