TECC40 Happy Halloween

October 31st, 2008

And here it is…my LAST Halloween card!  WooHoo!!!  Happy Halloween!



Have I mentioned that I really don’t care much for Halloween?  You’d never know it from looking at my blog over the last few weeks.  LOL!  I have truly enjoyed playing with both Anna’s Whipper Snapper and Taylor’s Stamp a Sweet Impression Halloween images – fortunately they are all super cute – but I am officially Halloween’d out!


That being said, I have to admit that I had a blast creating the little scene above and I think it may be my fave of all the Halloween cards I’ve created.  (Of course my most recent creation is often my fave – LOL)  This week’s sketch ROCKS!  It’s so versatile – I’m sure I’ll be using it again.  I started by stamping and masking Vampy from Trick or Sweet and then adding all the other images from Frightful Night.  I then colored everything with the Copic markers pictured below.



Vampy has a red pearl for his cherry and a little clear rhinestone for his cape clasp (both Kaiser Craft).  The ghosts are outlined with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I don’t have a black Copic, but N10 seems to work just fine for most things I would use black for.  The card base is Kiwi Kiss and I stamped the tiny ghost along with the little stars (Frighful Night) in Kiwi ink for a tone on tone background.  The dp is SU and I used a bit of black cardstock for matting.  Some black diamond stickles on the sentiment and some pumpkin grosgrain ribbon knotted on the left side are the finishing touches.


So you want to play along, right?  Check out Taylor’s blog for the sketch and all the deets to play!  And now let’s see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up:

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • And this week’s Featured Cupcake Stamper – Mary Fish at Stampin’ Pretty.

    What are your Halloween plans for tonight?  Oddly enough I’m hoping to work on Christmas cards.  Can you believe it will be November tomorrow?  November!!!!  Yikes – this month has flown by!  And don’t forget about the time change Saturday night…an extra hour to sleep Sunday morning – yea!  Have a great weekend!
