Boo!

Well, from the previous post you know I have the T!m Holtz wood grain embossing folder.  What other folder comes in the package?  The brick wall!  At first I was like, okay, so I won't use the brick one, but I like the wood grain so much that I'm getting it anyways.  But as I looked at that brick wall, it spoke to me. It said, "Halloween".  I had to listen.   So in grand Elisabeth fashion I was stuck in my work room, happily creating till 1:30 in the morning...on a work night.  I used this week's "Just Us Girls" Sketch to create this all card stock, no patterned paper card. The background was embossed on grey cardstock, with pumice stone distress ink applied directly to the embossing folder.    The hat was heat embossed on white card stock with Judikins Black Opal embossing powder, then detailed with a touch of distress ink.  To create the pumpkin, I stamped the quilted background on white cardstock, overstamped the pumpkin with archival ink ,added a bit of shadowing and paper pieced the stem. The card was finished off with a couple dew drops, acrylic paint edging and a little gingham bow.  (Honestly, how did I survive without my Bow-Easy before this?)



The stamps used were from the following {ippity} sets: "Fall For You", "Quotes a'la Happy" and "That's Creepy" and can be found for purchase on my Stamp{ippity} site.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you're having a fabulous week!
