Mistletoe

Afternoon my lovelies!

Are you doing anything for Halloween? I just haven't had the time this year to get anything organised... I haven't made any cards or bought any candy or pumpkins to carve. Oh well! :o(

For those of you who are going trick or treating, have a good time and be safe (that's my Good Samaritan bit out of the way).

Okay, onto another Christmas card. Not long ago on one of my trips into Norwich, I saw this lovely box set of stamps by Yellow Owl Workshop (drool). Well... I had to buy it didn't I? It was calling to me and I am not going to ignore it as that would be rude.

 
You can also purchase Yellow Owl Workshop goodies from Fred Aldous (click here to have a goggle).
 
This is what I came up with...
 
 

 
What you need...
 
Stamps: Mistletoe - Yellow Owl Workshop; JOFY Collection 6 - PaperArtsy
Card stock: olive green, white
Ink pads: Spanish Moss, Satin Red - Versafine
Pearls: red
Adhesives
 
What you do...
 
Stamp the mistletoe a few times with Spanish Moss ink in the top left corner of a piece of white card 11cm square. Stamp the bow and sentiment with Satin Red.
 
Mount onto olive card 12cm square and then onto a 12.5cm square blank. Finish with a few pearls.
 
There we have it. I think this is a classy little card and is so quick to do. This layout would look good with holly in the corner or pine twigs with a bauble.
 
Well, that's me for the moment. Don't forget, today is the last chance to enter the October blog candy.
 
I will be back tomorrow with the candy winner and the candy for November, until then. Cheerio!
 
P.S. Babs has started doing the 'squat', so I don't think it will be too long before she starts laying her eggs - I'm so excited (chews knuckles in anticipation). xx

  1. These stamps are gorgeous Colette and you have used them so beautifully. love your instructions as I have an issue making cards and creating so many layers and I am on the hit & trial method with cards so the measurements you give are very helpful !!
