let the paper help you

August 2, 2010

And again, Hween cards.  For this one, I used the digital version (purchased from SU!) of the same real-life papers to isolate and enlarge the skull image and printed it out and cut with die to make my focal point.  I love how SU! has so many cool digital choices now.  I bought all their digital punches to make mats for some of them.  You should really check out their digital selections!   Even when I buy the real stuff I also buy the digi b/c it’s cheap and I can use it forever and never run out! 

Papers and digital image by Stampin’ Up!, stamps by Inkadinkado.  Nestie dies by Spellbinders.   Black rhinestones by Kaiser.  Card size is A6.

I don’t want to invest in many Hween stamps – I have the greetings set and the teeny image set from Inkadinkadoo and the Witch Way to the Treats from JR, but I LOVED this wheel from SU! and had to have it.  Hubby agreed.  So cute!

Papers and stamp wheel by Stampin’ Up!.  Ribbon is 1/2″ Wrinkled in black from StampSimply.  Black pearls by Kaiser also from Stamp Simply.  Card size is A6.

    Hi Mary –

    No need to post this to your post but I do have a request for you to consider. Please feel free to say ‘No’ if that is your honest decision. I use my Cricut to cut a lot of my files. I just converted one of your gsd files to mtc (make the cut). I was wondering, since you are no longer selling files, may I post a couple of your files to the Make the Cut forum? I would give you complete credit, along with all the usual warning (do not sell, do not claim as your own, etc, etc). I just love your work and know that there are others out there that would also appreciate it. I’m not talking about doing all of your files, just as I need one and I’m already converting it for my use, may I share. The file I just converted is the 8x8edgies22_mdrp_gsd, the one with the stars and the moons. Anyway, just a thought and I will respect your decision. Thanks bunches, Hope you’re healthy and happy,

    Your web friend,

    Mary, I am trying to reach you to get permission to use one of your digi stamps. I sent an email to your old email address. I don’t know if it is still good.
