Boo!

Spooky Treats_Oct 2009

Here’s a simple Halloween card I made last week – most of it anyway. I managed to eke out enough time last night to finish it. There isn’t much to explain. I random-stamped the pumpkins, bats, and dots, used my Speckled Background stamp to fill in the background a bit, and then added a little white pigment ink to the edges. A ghostly touch, don’t you think? 

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Black, and Stampin’ Up Kraft cardstock; Black, Orange, Chocolate, Desert Sand, and White Pigment stamp pads; Papertrey Ink Spooky Sweets and CTMH Star Struck and Say it in Style stamp sets; Retired CTMH Speckled Background stamp; Orange brad from my stash.

I hope your week got off to a great start. Mine did. I hope, too, to touch base with you again soon! Thanks for stopping by. Later…

GREAT card, Kathi! Love it! Those are some cool pumpkins. I like the bats and white circles...it all works together wonderfully!

(I sure wish I could use Live Writer again, but it still won't work correctly on my computer...darn)

Cute card! I always struggle with "random" stamping, and making it all look relatively even and not overloaded on one side! This turned out perfect!
