Halloween & Wine - But Not At The Same Time...


At my poor attempt at a title let alone a rhyme...here is my post for this week! I like to call it "Halloween & Wine: But Not At The Same Time"

I ended up not knowing what to do for this week's post at the beginning and ended up with two completely different projects in the end.

For my first project above I took the back of a cork board coaster and added one of the VLVS to it. I used various inks, craft markers, blending tools, glitter pens, etc for coloring. I had some 'gel' embellishments that fit in the corners nicely and then added a border to each side as it looked a tad bare without it.

I used THIS STAMP from VLVS over at stampo.com

For my next trick...I mean project...I just did an ATC. I guess I could say this is my very first Halloween Project of the year!

You can find THIS STAMP HERE. I used paper from my stash, gel pens, blending pens, and other craft markers for my coloring. I used the same border as in the first project but I think it looks very different. I also used black ink around the edges of the white paper where I stamped the image.

Swing by and visit my blog HERE and don't forget to stop by the shop! Thanks for reading!

Two for the price of one! Great job, Jennifer!

Both tricks (projects?) are wonderful. Must admit, the ATC is my fave and has given me some ideas for my Halloween cards for this fall. Although, the bottle of wine is beautiful. Not ready for wine yet, as it's only 10:15 a.m., EST. Coffee for right now, but may open a bottle of wine this evening! Can only hope it would help my stamping be partly as gorgeous as yours!
