Fresh cuts

Happy Halloween everyone! I know most people will be Trick and Treating tonight, but I went last night with Nathan ( my 4year old nephew) and we had a great scary time. I wont show you the photos till the end of the post or else they'll scare you away!!!!!

Today's card is my entry for the Clean and Simple challenge #164 where they have this sketch.

Have a look 


I started by stamping the script text onto white card in green ink, and colouring the flower heads in pink ( I just love green and pink together). This was then layered onto pink card and placed on a white card base. I then cut some pink and white flower shape nestabilities in the BS, layered them, and stamped the leaf sprig in green, and added a cut out flower head, and then placed it on 3D pads for dimension. To finish I made the sentiment banner and stuck this across the stamped image again on 3D pads.

Card = Whisper White, Blushing Bride, and white card base from my stash
Stamps = Fresh Cuts and Verve
Inks = Lucky Limeade and Blushing Bride
Tools = Big Shot and Flower nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads

 Now for the scary photos, so log off now to save yourself!!!

This is Nathan in his "skelington" suit! ( but he wouldn't wear the mask as it was too scary for him. He did wear it as a headscarf in the next photo though!)
This is Nana with Sophie my 6 month old niece in her witch's wig

and this is me, as a witch, with Nathan and Erik, his Vampire bat!!. The Pumpkin wand I'm holding has got Nathan's home made bat, Fin Dink,  hanging from it, and this is what he'll use as a frightening trick if somebody doesn't give him a treat. Luckily, Fin Dink was not needed as his "bat bag" got stuffed full of goodies!!

 Well that's it for today, Thanks for looking, and I apologise if the photos were too much for you.


  1. Hi Bev, Gorgeous card love the simplicity of it and good luck with the challenge and your photo's are brilliant looks like your having fun:) Sandra H

  2. A gorgeous card Bev and what fab photos of you all hamming it up for halloween! Nathan looks like an angel in his little skellington suit (my boys used to say that too!) and you look like a very good witch! But where's Monty? Surely he got in on the action?!! Vx
