Woohoo!  Happy Tuesday, happy stampers!  ColourQ challenge today, and check out this trendy inspiration Arielle has for us today:


Sort of reminds me of something from Harry Potter, right?  I have SO MANY Halloween stamps, it took me a while to figure out what to use, so I used several:

LeAnne_CQC 158

(I wish this photo didn’t look so washed out….the colors are really more intense IRL!)  I heat embossed the witch’s hat from a retired SU set with Versamark and Detail Black embossing powder, then colored in the unembossed portions with markers.  A little glitter is always a fine accessory for the well-dressed witch, don’t you think?


My sketch is a fun one from Fab Friday:

And although it’s difficult to see, I embossed a few images on the card front as well:



And I had almost as much fun stamping the inside as the outside:


I used a circle punch to cut a mask, then sponged More Mustard and Tangerine Tango to make a spooky moon!  FUN!  Please email me if you have any questions about anything I used today!



Enjoy your day!

LeAnne, you did a wonderful job with these colours. I do love the sparkly star too. This is a great sketch too - I'll have to try it. Perfect masking on the inside.
It's so sweet to see Cassidy spending some time reading. She looks so relaxed and mellow.
Have a great day,

LeAnne, I love the inspirational photo you chose and the colours! I see the embossing and bet it looks even better in person. Love your fun card. Love seeing Cassidy reading.

I really love that witch stamp you used on the inside. Can you tell me what company makes it and stamp set name if it's from a set? Even if it's older I might find it used somewhere. Super great Halloween card!! I love all the details... embossing, sponging, etc.

Bonnie said...

This is perfect for the ColourQ challenge! Love that hat with the sparkly star and all the other details too! A very special Halloween card!

How cool is the witches hat with loads of color and glitter! And I'm loving the embossed images on the black card front.

Torie said...

Lee Anne, Love your witch hat! do you know the name of the stamp set?

Noelle said...

SO fun, LeAnne! I love that glittery purple star. And the black on black embossing looks so great! I really will have to try that one:) The inside is so cool, it could be the outside of another card! Your girl is looking awfully grown up all the sudden, so precious! Hope you are doing well, friend:) *hugs*
