Best of Halloween

TSSC281Happy Monday everyone!  And you know what Monday means…time for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!

Oh…this was just a perfect sketch to use the Best of Halloween 25th Anniversary set!  The base of card is Summer Starfruit.  I took the striped Witch’s Brew dsp, layered on Basic Black then added to the card front.  Next I took a piece of Basic Black, tied some Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon around it, then added to the card front.  I stamped the haunted house in Versamark, embossed in black, punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle punch, did a Gold Glimmer Circle using the Circle Framelits then a 2 3/8″ Pumpkin Pie Scallop Circle.  This is added using dimensionals.  Finally I stamped the trick or treat using Versamark on Pumpkin Pie, black embossed, cut into a banner and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I added a black Candy Dot to finish it off.

TSSC281What a GREAT sketch and really just perfect for the images from thi set!  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

HalloweenI used the Circle Card Thinlits for this.  The base is Basic Black and I used prints from the Witches Brew dsp for the front and back panels.  I love the Champagne Glimmer paper on this…just gives it that little bit ‘extra’!  Aren’t the bats cute?  I saw on Pintrest how to make these (and yes, I show these in the video too.
