My Mummy Always Said…

We’ve got a day full of fun with friends in the works.  Between our three families, there are fourteen kids!  Now that will be a lively!  How are you spending your last few days of warm weather?

I played along with the Hambo Hoedown again this week!  When you play along, link up your creation and email a photo of your card to them, you receive the next week’s digital image FREE!  What fun when you get to play with such adorable images!  If you’re just starting to play along, you can use any Hambo Stamps image to get started.

This week, we were to use this adorable mummy image (or any Hambo stamp) along with orange, black, green, and purple on our cards.  I used purple as my card base, green under the black embossed cardstock panel and orange as a background for the mummy.  I used an orange gemstone as a marking on the spider just for fun (think, black widow-ish!)!

Stamps – Hambo (Mummy – digi)
Paper – SU Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi cardstocks, Copic blending card
Ink – SU Elegant Eggplant (sponging around sentiment)
Accessories – Cuttlebug embossing folders, black twine, SU oval punch, orange gemstone, foam dots (popped up mummy, sentiment and orange panel), Martha Stewert spider punch
