We don’t celebrate Halloween much in Australia.  Although this year I am so surprised at the increase in costumes and decorations and sweets available.  😦  We certainly don’t give Halloween cards out so I don’t usually share Halloween projects.  This card though, we made at our Team Shoebox Swap a couple of months ago.  Since I have it I thought I would share it with you.

I can’t remember who shared it now for us to make.  Someone wonderful in our Inky Fingers Team.  I had to say I struggled with this card chopping off the heads of the punched black cats and then there was the discussion from others of what they could do with the headless cats!!!

Anyway to the card.  A Very Vanilla card mat was embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder and adhered to a Very Vanilla Card base.  The BOO was cut with the Large Letters Framelits.  3 Black cats were punched out with the Cat Punch and 2 of them had their heads chopped off to adhere behind the letters.  Then the full cat was adhered to the front of the letters.  The eyes were drawn in with the Chalk Marker.  I messed those up a little.  So Boo to you! I hope you like it. 🙂

Have a great day,


3D projects, Classes, Stampin' Up!, Techniques


I started making this sign before Christmas at a team meeting and as usual hadn’t finished it. I put it aside and actually forgot about it.  When I was clearing up things the other week I found it and thought it must get finished.  So yesterday, although it was Mother’s Day here I did get some time to indulge in a little creating for me and got about doing it.

I thought you might like to see it.  Nothing fancy but I thought it would  be nice to hang in my studio to welcome all the lovely stampers that come along to classes.

This is using the Eclipse technique with the Large Letters Framelits and the Touches of Texture.

This is the length of an A4 sheet of white but I have cut the width to about 15cm (6″) I think.  I backed the Whisper White card on some thick card from the Foil Sheets packaging we get and then backed that on some Silver Foil.

I think I will add some sparkle with the Wink of Stella pen??

I have classes several times per month in the Wollongong area so come along, and bonus – you can see this in real life and get to have some creative fun with all my other lovely stampers. 🙂

Thanks for visiting,
