Ghostly Greetings & a Punched Snowman

Happy Hump Day Peeps!! Hope your week is going well, so far!

Today I have two cards to share with you, the first is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I really love this sketch and will save it for future use.

I used another stamp from the Twick or Tweet Stamp Set, that will be available Sept. 1st. I stamped the ghost onto some PTI white cardstock with black stazon. The base of the card is pumpkin pie followed by basic black and the DS paper Cast-A-Spell.

I used my MS drippy goo punch at the bottom and added the "X" stitches with black embroidery floss and a needle. I used some pumpkin pie ribbon and a black grommet and tied a knot through the grommet. I added some stardust stickles to the ghost. I stamped the greeting onto some scrap white and punched out with the word window punch and mounted it to a pumpkin pie piece punched with the modern label punch. I added two black sticky pearls to the label.

This next card is a total CASE of this adorable creation by Heather. She has a video and a free PDF file to download for this cutie.

I think that snowman is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. I am seriously thinking of signing up for her online punch class.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
