Family Fun and a Fresh New Technique!

I've had a busy weekend, again. The family went to the pumpkin patch on Saturday night and by family, I mean, My Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister in Law, Nephew, Niece, Sister, Sister's Fiancee, another Sister, Husband and 2 Sons. There were 13 of us, out for a Hayride and to pick pumpkins. After the Pumpkin festivities, we went back to my house, had pizza from Venus Cafe and Cake with Ice Cream for my Sister in Law, Jess. Her birthday is on Tuesday. Happy Birthday, JESS!!! Here are a few pictures from the hayride, not many as it was dark and my 'good' camera is broken so I had to use the small stand by. These are mostly from standing in line waiting...























After everyone left, I remembered that I needed to make a card for Theresa Winters. Theresa was at the Scrapbook Cupboard today. She taught two fabulous classes with several demos. The amazing things you can do with those Dream Weaver Stencils! I took photos of all of her demo boards and I learned a trick or two while helping out. So, anyway... I remembered at about 12:30 AM that I wanted to make a card. So, I grabbed the only Dream Weaver Stencil I owned (the Naked Trees), the Cuttlebug, alcohol ink and some Rock Star Black Metal from 10 Seconds Studio. Here's the card I made...





Here's a picture of some of the things I used as well as the metal before I used Ginger Alcohol ink on the trees...

It's kinda funny to look at that photo. It almost looks like the stencil with black paper behind it, huh. But that's embossed metal with a Dream Weaver Stencil. Very cool, indeed! It's a super easy technique and I think I might embellish a little on it. I see a bat floating in the foreground and maybe a moon in the background? Or maybe I'll do this with regular aluminum and then alcohol ink it to have a purple-blue hued background and brownish black trees. Hmmm... The things I could do with this stencil. It's a good thing I ordered a few more, I'll be having fun playing for a while!

Up next, I need to make 10 ATC cards for the swap on Wednesday. Circus theme! I'll post pictures when they are done. I already know what I'm going to do, I just need about 10 more hours in my day...

I love the card just the way it is! The color choice was perfect. Leave it as is, and you'll have more time to do those 10 atc's! HA

Thanks Sherry! You're right. I will leave those cards for another day and concentrate on those ATC's!

Have a wonderful day!!
