Holy Sheet! – Teapot Tuesday #690

It’s Teapot Tuesday.  I have the honor of hosting this week’s Tea Party for Ciara in Ohio who is recovering from a really bad car accident.  When I read Ciara’s story, it took me back to the night my father-in-law was in a similar accident.  They had many of the same injuries.  We didn’t think he was going to make it, but thanks to the miracle workers at Mass General Hospital and a lot of rehab and physical therapy, he did.  I pray that Ciara receives such excellent care on her road to recovery.  Ciara loves Halloween, so we are sending her some Halloween giggles in her favorite color combo – baby blue and black.  

On this card, I’ve used stamps from Instagram giveaways from two of our SCS friends! The Picket Fence Studios ghost background stamp came from Angie (ohmypaper!) and the Ink Road ghosts came from Stef (smilynstef). I embossed the background ghosts on baby blue paper and popped up the main ghosts on action wobbles.

This is my favorite Halloween sentiment.  I found my original font that I thought I had lost when I switched computers.  I made this font on calligraphr.com. You should try it.  It’s so fun to make your own font!

 If you’d like to use this on your cards just right click on the image and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Whale Hello – Inspiration Challenge #808

Saturday means it’s Inspiration Challenge Day.  Kelly is our hostess and she found us some great photos to inspire us.  This whale reminded me of one of my most recent purchases waiting to be inked up.

I bought A Dose of Vitamin Sea in my last purchase from Picket Fence Studios.  Ooh, it’s on sale right now!  Come to think of it–everything is on sale right now at Picket Fence Studios, so I need to go buy some more Paper Glaze.  I love this stuff.  I envisioned my whale in a deep blue ocean with fish swimming all around. A perfect excuse to use my Current of Fish Stencil with my PFS Paper Glaze. I used blue and green kind of mixed together for it. The background started with a swirly kind of marbly dark blue DP and I stamped SU Bamboo II to add some more depth and interest behind the fish. And because the site is Picture Frames, I added a frame.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
