Caard Hop Day 2

Just joining the hop and don't want to miss out on any of the other good stuff? Go back to Jenyfur's Blog to start at the beginning.




I used black and orange Core'dinations cardstock for both of today's cards. The edges were distressed and sanded on the first one and the pumpkin edges were distressed on the second. To create the pumpkin I simply die cut oval shapes and layered them for a 3d effect. The stamps and sentiments are from American Art Stamp.

I totally love your white stamping on the black Core'dinations. Which white ink did you use? The card reminds me of drawing on the blackboard while the teacher wasn't looking. Not that I would ever have done that, lol.
