I have a fun announcement! I get to be a Guest Designer for Flower Soft this month!

Today is their monthly challenge (Make a Halloween card). Here is my card for the challenge using A7314 Small Spider & the sentiment from CL158 Halloween Party. I colored the spider with Copic markers andused Black Flower Soft on the spider’s belly (just a teeny bit) and on the mat around the image to make a fuzzy frame.

Thanks2Fall from The Stamps of Life!

Today’s cards were made with digital images from The Stamps of Life new Thanks2Fall set. This is a great set! Perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving and just about any other Fall cards!

Both cards were printed printed on Prism Simply Smooth White. I’m not great with doing shadows digitally so after printing I used my Copic markers to do the shadowing.

The digital images from The Stamps of Life come in three different file types – .jpeg, .png and .abr (photoshop brushes!). This set is also available in a clear stamp set.
