Evangeline Floating Square..

Hello friends and visitors, sorry been missing for a while, trying to finish my projects for our Granddaughter`s Wedding..
Sharing my DT card from Poppystamps blog

I thought this "Evangeline Floating Square" from Poppystamps, perfect for a shaker card.. Mine does not shake!!!.

For the shaker part I have used viol material  with these beautiful sequins from Birchpress Designs..   such pretty colours and lovely mix.. they are perfect colour match for  my no shred glitter card.

These are the dies I used to create my shaker part.

Mesh doubled ..held in place with 3d foam tape, left open at the top, to sandwich sequins, this I then sealed  more tape..

My none shaker square  filled with pretty sequins and decorated on the outside 4"x 4",

I have used an embossing folder from my stash, red ribbon with Poppystamps "Merry Christmas Banner" die along the top. Finished card  61/2" x 61/2"

Thank you for stopping by Pam xx.

Halloween Card.

Good morning friends and visitors.. 
My turn to post over on Poppystamps Blog 

Something I do not normally make "Halloween Cards"

I think these ghost`s are really cute! 

This is how I have placed them in this "Creepy Forest collage"

I have cut these Ghost in a piece of scrap card! placed onto my main card I will be using.

                                                                                                         This is my "Creepy Forest" cut out of black card, I have placed this where I want my ghost to appear! 

Remove the black forest card..Leaving the cut out in place.. place the die onto the cut out and using a poky (pricking)  tool..mark the card through  the holes..Center & 4 outside holes. Remove the die and cutout, now place the die back in place..If you hold your card and die up together you can see the holes you have made with your poky tool.

This is the finished topper, I have used dark purple as the backing card, foam tape used to add depth  to the layers..
Got my old Frantage out and did some distressing on "Stitched Maple Trio" with bronze/ black and chunky purple bits, also on the "Happy Halloween".love these googly eyes! "Witch Collage" comes in a circle when cut, I just cut her out and placed as shown.

"Happy Halloween" text removed from "Hip Halloween Circle"
