Hi peeps! Happy Tuesday! I got a lot of stamping time in yesterday and bulked up my Halloween card supply! I have so many Halloween stamps, I can never use them all but I put a dent in some of them! My first card is for Fab Friday's color challenge and In(k)Spire Me's sketch challenge, since yesterday's was not really up to par---I totally forgot the sentiment!!:
So here we go:
I started with an older cat and jack stamp (I don't know the maker) and stamped it on a diecut circle of Pumpkin Pie and added some Poppy Parade shading. It's backed with a Gorgeous Grape scallop and embellished with some purple bats (!!!!), and accented with some enamel dots. I diecut the sentiment and adhered it, then ran it through the Big Shot with a retired Spiderweb embossing folder. In hindsight, I should have made this card with thick white cardstock, I always forget how embossing folders make a card so wobbly!!
Bright colors, but fun! My second one used the outer edge of the circle that I cut from the above card (Lil' Inker Stitched Circles have stitching on both edges!) I know the photo makes it look much lighter, but it is the same cardstock! I can't resist this cute little trick-or-treater in her pumpkin costume...I stamped her in Memento ink and used SU blends to color her in:
I used some retired Urban Underground DSP for the background and mounted it on a Pear Pizzazz card that was stamped with some stars! I added a banner, a little star embellishment and some enamel dots. Isn't she cute?
And since this week's City Crafter Challenge is Halloween, I am playing along with it!
And speaking of cute, can you believe at National Harbor, there is a PEEPS store?! There are only two in the US...one there and another in Allentown, PA. I wish I had gotten a picture of the store, there were peeps everywhere! I love to look at peeps but I do NOT like them....not a fan of marshmallows too much! And I usually don't buy Cassidy souvenirs when I go somewhere, but I had to get her a peeps shirt:
She actually took off her Minecraft shirt and wore this one to school! Me? I wanted the little peeps bag! So cute! Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
