Halloween Ready

Today is my day to post a Halloween Card for SSCC!  I decided to use one of my favorite Halloween Magnolia Stamps - Tilda with Pumpkin.  I used Black Soot Distress Inks on the inside and outside of the card.  I found a black rose in my stash that I thought was perfect for this card, along with an orange feather.  I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Die - Labels 6 to cut Tilda out.

On the inside of the card, I used a bat die cut.

Well, Tilda is ready to go Trick or Treat for candy - are you?

Have a great day!

Hugs, Meg

Coloring in Monochrome

I was having computer issues yesterday so wasn't able to post my monochrome card for the MSL Challenge - but today I am all set.  I have used one of the new Magnolia stamps - Autumn Tilda with Pencils.  Being a crafting junky, I just had to get this stamp!  LOL!  I decided to look for inspiration for this card in my ribbon jar first and came up with polka dots in brown.  My card is done with all browns!  I used Core'dinations paper for this project, distress inks, and copic markers.

 The inside of my card uses Core'dinations paper and the negative of Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 6.

Hope you have enjoyed my card!

Hugs, Meg

Girlfriends Card #2

Okay, so now you have seen the first Girlfriends card that I made.  This is the second card.  This theme was a wine theme, because the lady receiving the card loves wine.  I did the card in black and white with a bit of color.

Don't you were with your girlfriends enjoying this right now?  They look like they are having an amazing time.  Here is the inside left of the card.  This was written by the woman that contracted me to make these cards.  

The inside right of the card has the perfect sentiment to go with the front.  

I used my silhouette to cut the wine glasses out.  I thought the card turned out wonderfully.  Hope you do to!

Have a great Tuesday!

Hugs, Meg

Girlfriends Card #1

I was commissioned to make a couple of birthday cards for someone that has two friends that are turning 60 over the next two months.  This is one of the cards that I made.  I will post the other one this week as well.  I used one of the "Girlfriends" stamps that I got at Archivers.  I LOVE these stamps.  They are so fun!  So this first particular girlfriend loves shoes!  So I used the shopping Girlfriends stamp, used the triple layer technique with the Manhattan flowers stamps, and used her favorite colors - red, black and white.

The inside consists of a handwritten note that I put into MS Word using a script font.

 And then I used my Silhouette to cut out a high heeled shoe and stamped the sentiment "Girlfriends Make the Best Accessories".  

I thought the card turned out pretty good!

Can't wait to show you the other card that I made!

Hugs, Meg
