Papertake Weekly, BasicGrey & My Time to Craft

I received a little box of Stampin' Up goodies today - the scallop punch (yippee - got one at last!!!), some paperstock, the sanded stamp and some other bits and pieces. I really love the sanded stamp - it really turns plain pieces of cardstock into effective backing - I used it this morning to make the following cards:

The first one is for the Papertake Weekly challenge which is "Frightful but Delightful" and also the My Time To Craft challenge which is "Personalise it", so I've made a halloween card for a party that my kids are going to on 31st Oct! I used the sanded stamp to stamp close to cocoa onto the pumpkin pie cardstock.

I've used my sanded stamp again for this card, which is for the BasicGrey Challenges and this week the challenge is to use Stitching. I used the Sanded stamp to stamp and emboss the design in silver onto the black basecard.

I love my sanded background stamp! My friend is borrowing it at the moment but I am thinking I really need it back!

It does make paper look really cool!
