Forboding Fortunes

Hi everyone I am here today with another Halloween card and video. This time I created a Fortune Tellers card and I also included some fun fortunes inside the card. 

If you want to see how I created this card you can check out the video below. 

What was really fun about this card is that I decorated the inside and used the pocket die from Sizzix.  This was perfect to hold some fun fortune teller cards from VectoriaDesigns.  

The fit nicely into the pocket and can also be removed very easily.

The Dr. is in...

Hi everyone. I am here today sharing my most recent project and video. Sometimes my ideas and inspiration come from the strangest places and this one is no exception.  

Many of us remember the Peanuts comic strip. Lucy had a booth, kind of like a lemonaide stand where she offered Psychiatric advice for 5¢. So instead of offering psychiatric advice, I decided to offer elixers & Potions. 

If you would like to see my process video, you can check it out below. 

I created the booth using the Sizzix postage die and some paper from the new Halloween Tim Holtz collection. I also used some ephemera and stickers to decorate the booth.

I also decided it would be fun to create a matching card. I really wanted to use that 5¢ remnant rub.

I have a few more Halloween cards and videos to post before the month is over. I hope that you check out my video and subscribe to my channel so that you don't miss a post.

Thanks for stopping by.

STAMPlorations - October Challenge

Hello and welcome back to our monthly theme and sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations.  This month our theme is Stamps & Autumn.  If this theme does not catch your fancy, then you are also welcome to play along using our sketch shown below.

For my project, I decided to use both the sketch and the theme. My background was created using some Graphic 45 paper and the stamp I am using is from the TYPOGRAFIA Thankful Collection called Full of Thanksgiving.

Embellished cards can be more expensive and difficult to mail, but they are perfect to be hand delivered to family and friends this holiday season.

I also created a video to share with you my process for creating this card. You can check it out by clicking the link below.

Now don't forget to play along this month in our sketch and theme challenge. Be sure to check out some of the other challenges running this month as well. 

As a reminder, if you use code: STAMPGIRLMONICA, you can get an additional 20% off your purchase!

Thanks for s…
