HSS399 Trick or Treat

Hi there stampers!  I had a lot of fun creating this Halloween card once I got past the unique color palette from Hand Stamped Sentiments!  Check it out:

I used lots of old goodies on this card, but of course, Starry Sky is new!  So here we go:

My main images are from a retired SU set called Howl-o-ween Treat, and they were cut with their matching Boo to You dies!  I diecut a piece of Pool Party DSP with the Basic Borders dies and stamped some spooky spiderwebs and stars on a Starry Sky card base before adhering it.

The sentiment, from the same set, was placed in the Stamparatus, stamped with Starry Sky ink, then without moving the stamp, I cleaned it very well and inked it up again with Versamark ink.  Then I embossed it with clear embossing powder:

I added some Starry Sky glimmer paper stars, and on the inside, repeated the colors:

Lots of fun!  I am glad HSS pushed me out of my comfort zone with these colors!  I am going to enter this at Global Design Project as well, as their challenge this week is "Spooky"! 

Thanks for popping in today...enjoy it and be blessed!

Such a cute card LeAnne! I love the way you used the cloud die! So clever, I will have to remember that and CASE it! You did a great job of balancing the colors from the challenge. Thanks for joining the hand stamped sentiments challenge this week!
