Some Spooktacular Sketches! 35

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 9, 2009 @ 11:56 AM | , , ,

Hello Everyone! It seems as though you all think those lil' Monsters are as cuuuute as I do :) You will be seeing more of them here at Cupcake's Creations in the weeks to come, as I chose to feature them in my Halloween theme for my entry in this month's Cuttlebug Challenge Birthday Party Palooza!

This next set of Halloween cards aren't so cute & fuzzy but rather Spooky in my vocab! This week, the girls over at 2Sketches4You, have provided us cardmakers withnot just one but two sketches to play with! This week Scor-it is 2Sketches4you sponsor that means all the DT samples used their Scor-it board in some fashion! For those of who are not familiar with a Scor-it board, I recommend checking it out! It has many, many uses. I personally use it for making my own embossing lines & all the score lines in the 3-D projects that I make. For your enjoyment, I recommend visiting 2Sketches4You! You will surely be inspired to get creating! Tell me what you think? Are these dark & spooky? Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet!

Using Laura's Sketch 34 for inspiration, I made what I call my Crazy Cat card.







Using Latisha's #2 sketch for inspiration, here is my Best Witches card!











Ingredients Used:

Stamps: PTI Spooky Sweets 11

Paper: Making Memories DP, SU Really Rust, Bravo Burgandy, Going Grey, Natural Ivory

Ink: SU Basic Black, Bravo Burgandy
