Trick or Treat!!!

Hey there, hope you're enjoying your Sunday afternoon. Tomorrow is Columbus Day and I wish I was off from work! (OK, I'll stop whining now!) Well yesterday my niece whose five came to visit for a while and the first thing she asked me was "Auntie can we make a card?" She really knows how to pull my heart strings!!! :D My SIL had gotten me these Halloween stamps by Paper Studio a couple of weeks ago, so I pulled them out and we got to work.


Stamps: Paper Studio Paper: My Minds Eye & CTMH CS Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black Ink & Copics Accents: Orange Bigger Brad & Liquid Glass (CTMH), Paper Piercer, Green Polka Dot Ribbon, Circle & Scalloped Circle Punch (Paper Studio), Pop Dots

I thought this spider was the cutest thing so I quickly got to work with him. I stamped my spider with Brilliance Graphite Black Ink and stamped him onto White Daisy CS. I then colored him with my copics. I know spiders aren't purple, but I couldn't resist. Plus when I colored him black you couldn't see his nose and that cute little smile, so purple it was!!! :D I then layered him onto a piece of Orange CS that I stamped out of my scalloped circle punch and added some liquid glass to make his hat shiny and put him aside to dry. Next I worked on my base. It's a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of White Daisy CS folded in half. I then layered a piece of Hydrangea CS and then a piece of Mind Minds Eye Dp to the top part of my card that I got from my LSS. It's super glittery and looks way cuter IRL. To the bottom part of my card I added a piece of super glittery black polka dot dp that I absolutely had to have when I saw it and added a piece of green polka dot ribbon to pull the two together! :D Once my image was dry I pop dotted it onto my base and worked on the sentiment. This sentiment comes from the stamps my SIL got me and I thought it went perfect! I stamped Trick or Treat with Brilliance Graphite Black Ink onto White Daisy CS. I then layered it onto a piece of Hydrangea CS and added an Orange Bigger Brad and I was done! :D

Well if you're off tomorrow for the holiday, hope it's a great one! :D Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to sign up for the blog candy give away! :D

Have a Fabulous Evening!!! :D
