House of Haunts - Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday friends!  Things are happy in the Eichfeld house tonight, Aidan is in bed and we just watched the Phillies win (one more to go, whoo hoo!)  I'm back again with a card for this weeks Stamping 411 sketch challenge and decided to focus on halloween this week. 

The cardbase is Old Olive and has a piece of Frightful Sight DSP on top which has been sponged around the edge with Cajin Craze classic ink.  The main stamped image is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut into an oval and is stamped with the haunted house from the House of Haunts stamp set and is stamped with Basic Black.  Then I used a 1 1/4" circle punch to create a mask to sponge the moon image and house windows with Peach Parfait ink.  Then I took the circle cut out and covered up the moon to sponge the rest of the cardstock with Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Cajin Craze, and Concord Crush inks.  The border was created by using the eyelet border punch on a strip of Cajin Craze cardstock and then I ran it through the paper crimper multiple times to help breakdown the fibers.  Next I ran a border of sticky strip around the back of the oval and started pleating the strip around the back of the oval.  

The ribbon is Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon that was wrapped around the DSP and then used for the bow as well.  The words are from the new Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set that was punched out with the 1" circle punch and then matted with a 1 1/4" circle.

Such a fun card and so spooky for the holiday, hope you enjoy.

Happy stamping,
