Happy Halloween!


Happy Thursday, Everyone! I was in my art room yesterday, trying to get it organized, little by little, and found a large red tote bag. Inside the bag was a package of Nestabilities that I bought at the stamping expo this spring! I guess I had left them behind and forgot about them. The poor things! So.....I opened them up and got busy! I made this Halloween card using the spooky pumpkins stamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff . You can get this fun digii stamp in her shop for just $1! How cool is that?
I got started by coloring the image with my bic mark its and cutting/embossing it with my long lost nesties. Hmmm....then what to do? I decided to choose some papers from my scrap drawer and chose a scrap of Bo Bunny patterned paper, a random scrap of green and a pumpkin colored Bazzill card stock base. I still wasn't surehow I wanted to put it all together and decided to surf the net for inspiration. I found this great sketch at Janet's The Corrosive Challenge Blog. All I needed to do was flip the sketch on it's side to fit my image. Perfect!
Here is a list of supplies I used:
Patterned Papper: Bo Bunny
Card Stock: Bazzill
Green and Cream card stock scraps
Digi Image: Lindsay's Stamp Stuff
Sentiment: It didn't say!
Leaf Brad: Judy's Junque
StazOn Ink: Olive Green, Black
Bic Mark its: Honey Brown, Adobe Orange, Summer Melon, For Ever Green, Yellow Blaze, Moonstone Yellow

Those pumpkins turned out so cute. I love that background paper you chose by the way. Starting to feel like Autumn (at least in the blogging world--still feels like summer at my house).
