13 Days of Halloween – Day 10 | Wizard Friends

Hello There!

Today I’m sharing a card I made using Kindred Stamps Wizzard Friend stamp set. I decided to create a misty magical forest to place Hermione, Ron and Harry in and added a cauldron from the Bear Wear 2 stamp set for them to brew up a potion. Here is what I came up with:

Here are some close-ups of the finished card:

I feel like this card still needs a little something but I can’t figure out what. Any suggestions? I was thinking of adding brown on the tree trunks but didn’t want to mess up the foggy forest look though.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan you should check out this stamp set – it has some great sentiments for all different types of cards and there are coordinating stamp sets with other characters too.

Tuesday Morning Haul

Hello, hello, hello…

It is nice to be back home in Baltimore and finally feeling better. I was sick with a migraine the weekend before I left on vacation and then about mid-week in Florida, my allergies went crazy and then it turned into some type of sinus infection/cold and I’ve been dealing with that this past week since I’ve returned. What a couple of weeks! I feel like I’m finally back on track though 🙂

Here I’m sharing a quick Tuesday Morning haul from Saturday with you:

Hope everyone has a great week!

xoxo,

Sarah

Quick check-in

Hello everyone,

Hope you are having a great week! Well I had hoped to be posting my SSS July 10 Cards, 1 Kit last Sunday, but I was really sick all weekend and just didn’t have the energy. And while I have been working on the editing this week (almost there!) I leave today for vacation and it’s just not quite finished yet, so I will most likely be posting that video the week of August 14th.

If you’re following me on instagram ,I’ll be posting some vacation photos and you can keep up with me there. Until then…Hope you have a fantastic week!

MFT- Big Thanks | Shaker Card

Hello there,

I’ve got a quick shaker card to share with you today. The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Card Challenge was to use patterned paper, so I went with a really clean design to highlight this pretty blue star/sky paper.

The blue paper is from Pink Fresh Studios and the red is from Carta Bella. I’m not sure which paper packs they are in though, because both were from previous Simon Says Card kits. Before I started doing the 10 cards 1 kit videos I hoarded so many of my supplies, which is silly really because we buy them to enjoy them. I was the same way with stickers when I was little, I never wanted to use them either and ended up with quite a collection.  Living in a tiny apartment will help cure you of those problems really quickly!

Here’s a close up of the final card:
