Happy Halloween!

Trick or treat, smell my feet, make a card that's really neat!  Yeah, okay, that was as corny as it gets, I know!  Couldn't resist!  Tomorrow is Halloween and I want to make sure you're ready, so here's my treat!

I love this Stampendous® stamp, Picket Pumpkins!  I know it's been out for a year already but it's a favorite of mine and I just had to use it.  I paired it with Witching You, which is new, for the sentiment.  I stamped my main image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copics.  I did go back over my picket fence with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in, you guessed it, Picket Fence!  Love the irony!  Anyway, once my paint was dry, I trimmed the stamped image down to size and using Bazzill I created my tent fold card base as well as a mat for my pumpkins.  I cut my My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose patterned paper to fit, added some May Arts ribbon and created my sentiment.  I inked up just the Happy Halloween portion of the stamp and stamped it on a piece of scrap Neenah.  I brushed on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade, added a mat, then, using Zip Dry, I adhered it all together!

When it's a stamp I really love, like this one, it's always a pleasure to create a card.  I certainly enjoyed putting this one together.  Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll stop back by tomorrow when I'll have one last Halloween card using Dreamweaver Stencils.  See you soon!
