Spidery Halloween Scene

 Happy Halloween! To celebrate, I used the Halloween Scene to create a little spooky vignette, then added the Spidery Halloween stamp for the sentiment. The background is paper from my stash, with three stripes of black glitter tape to enhance it. Hope your Halloween is full of fun, friends, and candy!

Vellum Merry Christmas


It's been a while since I pulled out my vellum - but I really wanted to overlay this sentiment from the Gifts of Christmas stamp set over the Ribboned Ornaments, and vellum was a great solution. I used a heavy hand with dark colors to make the ornaments underneath pop. The stamps may be found here:
