Hello everyone and a very happy Friday to you! I have a friend’s wedding to go to tonight and tomorrow I have lots of cards to make! I do plan to get outside for a little while because it’s supposed to be nice this weekend. What are all of you up to this weekend? Hopefully you have some good plans and are going to squeeze in some crafting time too!
Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a sketch to work with…
Seeing as I was playing with Halloween stuff yesterday it made it into today’s card too. The base of the card is Basic Black Card Stock. I used three different patterns of paper from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper Pack for the background. The rosette is also made from the same DSP using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I used a piece of Tangerine Tango punched with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and a piece of Basic Gray punched with the 1/2″ Circle punch for the middle and it is adhered to the card with a Mini Glue Dot. The cute little witch is from the Googly Ghouls Stamp Set and she is stamped in Basic Black ink. I used my Paper SNips to cut her out and mounted her to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two Googlies finish her off. The greeting is from the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and is also stamped in Basic Black and adhered to the rosette with Multi-Purpose Glue. I’m really having a lot of fun with the Halloween items from the Holiday Catalog. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Card and that you got some inspiration for some Halloween fun! Thank you very much for checking in and have a great day!
