Number 13 ~ lucky for some!!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all doing ok and having a lovely week. Me? I had a great productive start to the week but now, everything has ground to a halt as I've succumbed to the flu and been feeling under the weather for the last couple of days!! So today, I've spent it sitting on the sofa, plying myself with soup and let me just say, this soup from New Covent Garden is delish...if you love pumpkin, then you will want to taste this. It's nearly as good as my Mum's homemade and perfect for Halloween.

Which leads my very nicely to my post for today ~ I hope you like it!!
Once again, all the gorgeous 13th Hour, Kaisercraft products and stamps, that I used on this card are available from Merly Impressions, I just added some Spellbinders and Tim Holtz die cuts, (it wouldn't be a card without a die cut or two from me...hehe), some vintage ribbon and last but not least, another handmade flower, die cut using a PaperArtsy Grunge Flower die and dipped into UTEE, to give that enameled look.
I also thought that Tim's "31" Alteration die was perfect for this paper collection, I just used it as "13" instead!!!
I stamped all the images onto the card, before running it through a die cutting machine using, yes ~ that man again, one of Tim's Texture Fades, embossing folders to give the raised spiders web in the corner.

Quite a lot of distressing is all that was needed to complete it and a generous smothering of Rock Candy Distress Stickles to give a shimmer to the rose.

Time for me to head back to the land of Channel 4, afternoon TV and I'll try to get around to visiting all your blogs, to see your lovely creations!!
See you soon!!
Love Emma


  1. Fabulous Emma, love the die cuts and the 13 in the centre along with the spiders web. Beautifully executed as always. Hope you are feeling better soon. Tracy x

  2. WOW Emma this is stunning, what a great make. Hope you feel better soon, Oh I want some soup now. Love Hazelxoxo

  3. Great project Emma.
    Hope you're feeling better soon, best thing is rest and relaxation (and Channel 4) - think that's where I went wrong a few weeks back still got a niggly cough and recurring sore throat

  4. Poor you, take it as easy as possible. Your card is fabulous - great images and as beautfully made as always, Jo x

  5. Poor you, feeling so rotten. Hope you soon recover fully, with lots of soup and tlc. Lovely card by the way. Perhaps the number was not a good one for dealing with the flue.

  6. Sorry to hear you are poorly, hope you feel better soon.

    This is fabulous, love all the details, take care,

  8. Oooh, fantastic project Emma; it has so much atmosphere (is that possible? y'know what I mean!)

    Hope you feel better soon

  9. I think apart from your Christmas themed cards, you really hit the mark the best your Halloween themed cards and crafts! there's just so much variety with them! even as simple as the number 13 is turned into such a lovely card! the 13 of course is the centerpiece but the clock, domino, and flower just pull it all together...really smartly done! :D
