Spooky Fun and the TSOT Challenge #289
Flourish Thinlits and the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #CCMC426

Spooky Fun Bundle

Today I have another project using the Spooky Fun bundle from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  I used it to make my card for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge card.  


I think I say I struggle with every challenge, which is one of the reasons I wanted to be a part of the design team.  Whether it is a color or sketch challenge I am pushed to try something new.  I know  that participating in challenges has helped me become a better stamper.  I highly recommend it and hope you will join in this week's challenge.

I started off by lightly sponging black ink on to a strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I cut out the spooky tree using the Halloween Scene Edgelits (available as a bundle with the Spooky Fun stamp set).   I stamped the witch image on Smoky Slate card stock and used markers to color her. There are 2 witch images in the Spooky Fun set one solid and the other a line image and they are both cut out using the same  die from the Halloween Scene Edgelits.   The little witch is flying across a Gold Glimmer moon.  I also used a piece of the Halloween Night Specialty DSP.  There are 2 sheets in this fun pack of paper that have silver foil designs.  The one I used has a cool spider web design on it.  The little bats were cut out using the Home Sweet Home framelits.   The final thing I did was stamp the little dots from the Gorgeous Grunge set.   This little bit of texture was just what the card needed.
