#1. I lightly stamped house image on the back side of the gray brick image designer paper, (which is this gray & black dsp that has these little haunted houses on it- as shown in the photo), using the Black Memento ink pad. I just needed the image to lightly be there so that I could cut along the outside lines of the house.
The stamp set I used is the 'Sweet Home' set, plus I used the coordinating thinlits that go with it called- Home Sweet Home- page 40 in the Holiday Catalog. Oh I love it when Stampin' Up! has things that coordinate together like this!
stamp sets: 'Sweet Home' & 'Jar of Haunts' (the words)
card stock: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
designer paper: Halloween Night Specialty DSP
ink: Black Memento, Pumpkin Pie
other: Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Precision Plate, Home Sweet Home Thinlits, Paper Snips, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Halloween Night Baker's Twine, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
NOTE: Usually you cut the card stock at 2" wide to fit exactly into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.....mine is narrow. I just centered it in the middle- like shown below in the photo & it worked perfectly!
Yesterday was a busy day with boys! They went with Deke & I to Osky to the bank in the morning for an appointment we had over there. We played outside in the afternoon & stopped to get an ice cream cone at Walkers on our way back to their house about 4:30. I ran errands for Deke in town & then went back to Osky to get groceries & things for the boys birthday party!! It was late when I got home, got the car unloaded & everything put away. And then made Deke supper when he got in & finally called it a night.
This morning I have lots to do to help finish getting ready for the twins' birthday party that is tonight at the Seeley's home. I need to make their cards, wrap their gifts.....and I'm making marinated tenderized ham steaks, cheesy potatoes & need to cut up the watermelon to take to the party too. We are grilling out! Hoping the rain holds off at least during the party. I know the boys are excited! I can't believe that they will be 5 in a few days! Wow- where does time go?
I hope you have a SENSATIONAL Saturday!!
