Thriller Night...

Hi everyone and hope you're having a wonderful week, so far!!

First of all, I'd like to say a bit thank you to everyone who left comments on all my Clarity cards...THANK YOU!!! :) Of course, Barbara is back on our screens again at the weekend, so there will be a lot more cards to show you next week, after the shows and there's some lovely new designs to watch out for. I also be sharing some cards that I made for some shows Barb is doing, this week in Germany and those samples are some that I'm especially pleased with!!

But before all that, I thought I'd share something a little different and here it is...my Halloween Invitations!!! I hope you like it...
I made these invites using some fab papers from a Sarah Hurley Digi Kit which is available for you to download, here. I chose to use papers from the Vintage Halloween Digi Kit but check out the Whimsy Halloween kit, too!! And, if that doesn't satisfy your Halloween Crafting needs, take a look at this. Sarah has designed a gorgeous set of digi stamps and you can grab yourself a free one, plus more characters to go with her!! *phew*
As for this creation, I combined the papers with a Timmie die cut tag and yes, I could not resist the lure of the new Tim Holtz Alterations Dies that have just been released and they seemed to find their way into my basket!! But look at them, aren't they just to die for?? lol The wings are die cut from a Sizzix die and I added final touches of vintage seam binding and rosettes!

Well, it's time for me to head to the kitchen and put my Nigella head on but before I go, a lot of people asked me what I bought from Ally Pally and because I don't want to disappoint...here's the stash!!!!
I'll be round after dinner to comment on all your lovely creations.
Have a fabulous evening.
See you soon.
Love Emma

  2. Fabulous Emma, love love those dies and I am now thinking I need the bat and the 31, oh dear I can't help myself, think I need treatment for this addiction. Love how you have used corrugated card too, wonderful invitation. Had a good old nose at your purchases too, see you purchased the new Tim Holtz stamps, I got the Christmas ones but not the Halloween yet, on my list though. I am going to Port Sunlight a week on Saturday so maybe then LOL. Enjoy your evening. Tracy x x

  3. such original invitations...and nice to see something different then the usual Halloween colours.

  4. Fabulous invitation Emma and very interesting looking stash!! Can't wait to see what you do with it! xx

  5. Wow, what a fabulous invitation, and how great that it's not purple and orange and green, yet is totally Halloweeny! Jo x

  6. Fabulous invitation - so completely original

  7. Fabulous tag!!! Another stunning creation Emma. Wish I'd gone to Ally Pally - I'm even too busy to shop LOL.
    Looking forward to meeting up, I could do with a break from the scissors and glue! :)xxx

  8. Love your invitations Emma, superb. What a great stash from Ally Pally. It looks very interesting indeed.

  9. Can't wait to see your next instalments of Clarity cards. You have such good ideas and those ideas are carried out so beautifully. I have been playing today and can't wait to get back to them (after visiting our son, his wife and their two beautiful girls tomorrow, and our daughter and her gorgeous family as well)

  10. This is a great tag, great die cuts. Lov your Noel card.
    Glad you had a good day.

  11. Sorry Emma, I've been a poor visitor again this week but have caught up on all your lovely Clarity cards. I don't know how you do it, they are all just stunning and I'd be hard pushed to pick a favourite.
    Your invitation is really classy. The corrugated card works brilliantly with it all and your new stash looks like it's going to be put to brilliant use, can't wait to see what you do with it all.
    Hugs Lisax

  12. I really love the corrugated paper reveal at the bottom...the shabby chic look of that torn paper is brilliant! that look really works so well for Halloween!

    Fabulous card! :D and can't wait to see what else you create with all those new supplies! :-o


Thank you for all your comments and messages, they are all appreciated and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon...
