Wonderfully Wicked with Woodland Embossing

welcome back to my corner of the world

So here we are – October 2nd!  although here in North Texas it is hard to believe it as we continue to have temperatures in the mid 90’s and have only had rain twice in the last 9 weeks!  As many of you know I originally came from south-west England some 18 years ago, before we came to this part of the world I never would believe I would ever WISH for rain!!!

As this is the start of October I am sharing a Halloween card using the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  As I write this post, Brian (best beloved!) is  putting out the Halloween decorations in the front garden. Continue reading

Cauldron Bubble – Happy Halloween

We are less than a week from Halloween and time for a seasonal card!  I made this particular card at a meeting held by my Stampin’ UP! Mum and it was designed by one of my Stampin’ Sister’s Tricia.  That is what is so fabulous about being a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator – we meet and share in  craft that we love.

The card showcases the lovely products in the Toil and Trouble Suite.  The stamp set we used is Cauldron Bubble and it has a coordinating die set called Cauldron Framelit Dies, (buy as a bundle and save 10%) which we used to cut the little kitty kat from the Black Foil Sheets – all available in the 2018 Holiday Catalog (contact me if you would like a copy!)
