Zombie Apocolypse

Happy Weekend!
I was lucky enough to be invited to my friend, Shirley's fabulous craft room on Thursday. Seriously, peeps, her room is THE BEST!  Maybe if you all run over an ask her, she'll post photos someday!
Anyhoooooo.....Shirley is an Amuse demonstrator (hint, hint!), and...
We made these, using Amuse products, of course!
The little ghosties were a CASE of this card by our amazing stamping friend, Chelsea (who is also an Amuse demonstrator).
Sorry, these are new Amuse stamps and dies, so I don't know names!  The fence is an Impression-Obsession die, and I got it over at Scraptownlady.


The butterfly card, was just the sponge and spritz technique.  We thought this stamp set would work well with that technique.  I am not so good at getting the 'spritzes' to show!  You may need a magnifying glass to find them!

This Amuse set is called 'Sunny Side of Life'.  The really sweet thing, is that the focal stamp is so long, that you only have to ink and stamp once, and it covers a full A2 card front.  Cool beans, right???

So.........someone I know is a Zombie addict, sort of.
When I saw this digi sentiment over at Ginger's House, I knew it would be perfect for a card for him!
What do you think?  Silly.  Makes no sense at all.  But, what fun!
You know, like seeing 'that' jewelry, and saying 'with just the right dress....'  lol!
Just did some sponging here, stamped some 'grass' from a Gina K. Designs set, then some birds from a Flourishes set. The black bird in front of the moon is an Amuse die.  Let me know if you need more info!

I used my 1/4" Perfect Layers ruler to get the fabulous border around the sentiment! You can use any craft knife, or rotary cutter, with the Perfect Layers Rulers.  Check out my sidebar for details, and be sure to check out their website for informational videos!

If you've never dropped in at Ginger's House, you should!
She posts daily freebies, and she's like our preacher....sometimes, you know that what was posted or preached was written just for you, or your situation.

All righty, today is a busy day, and tomorrow's church,
so I'll probably be back here on Monday!

Off to see what you've been up to...

Hugs...

OMG - you will never believe it but I just pre scheduled posts for the projects we did at my house. Like the ghosts with the chevron paper and the sunny side of life card is so pretty - I sent one out today. Who is a Zombie fan??? Cute card and love the sentiment. We do get creative when we get together don't we.

Patti, these are 3 just delightful cards. I love that Amuse bird die, so will check out your friend. Don't have any of their products. I'm with you on the spritzing. I'm challenged that way (and many others too!) I spray way too heavy. Looks like you did a fab job with yours. I'm liking all these images and what you did with them on these cards. I'm sure you ladies had a real fun time. It's best when stamping with like-minded good friends. TFS & Hugs

Well, didn't you and your friend have a great time, look at all these wonderful cards. I miss those days when there were so many of us stamping. All but me have moved on to something else. I am fine, just a busy summer and redling our main bathroom, so have been blogging less, thanks for asking. Looks like our girl is adjusting nicely in Germany, happy for them........

Hugs
