Happy Halloween 67

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 18, 2010 @ 10:13 PM | , ,

Hi There! Hope you are all off to a great start of a new week :) While shopping at my favorite papercrafting store yesterday, I came across some fabulous finds! The DP used on this card was one of those findings. Combining this darling DP with a few Waltzingmouse Stamps and Spellbinders™ die templates, I created this Happy Halloween card.
I love to heat emboss so many of Claire's images because the detailed designs seem to appear like magic when inked up with VersaMark ink & embossed with white embossing powder! You can surely see the awesome decorative detail in the label from Very Vintage Labels No. 1 that coordinates perfectly with a S4-161 Labels One die template. Claire treats us to lil' motif stamps tucked within quite a few stamp sets (on my loooong wish list for Claire is an ENTIRE motif/flourish set ;) The beautiful ornate motif in the lower right corner is from Very Vintage Labels No. 2 and is an example of these gorgeous designs.

For sketch inspiration, I played along with week's fabulous sketch designed by Kazan over at 2Sketches4You.
After inking up the lil' witch image from Midnight Feast with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using a S4-116 Standard Circles SM die template, I cut/embossed the image then layered her on top of a multi-layered scalloped circle embellishment & finished it off with a lil' rosette.
Have you found any treasures lately while out & about??? That's all I have to share today :) Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 1, Very Vintage Labels No. 2, Midnight Feast
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™Nestabilities® S4-116 Standard Circles SM, S4-161 Labels One, S4-125 Classic Scalloped Circle SM, S4-124 Classic Scallop Circle LG, S4-140 Petite Oval Small, GC-001 Grand Calibur
