Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog: Card Sketch Challenge, Halloween Happiness

Good morning friends!  I think we've survived the rain, what a crazy weekend, I really didn't know if the rain was ever going to end.  So we had planned on having a full weekend, including a baseball game, and Cub Scout Camping but the game ended up being cancelled and we decided that in the best interested of the health, and sanity of our family that we were going to pass on camping.  This meant we had a whole "found" weekend so we were able to relax and spend some quality time together, and even watched some movies.  I was also able to spend some quality time in the studio stamping which I really enjoyed.
Today I'm sharing my card for this months card sketch on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog and of course it's another Halloween themed creation.  This card uses the really cute Halloween Happiness stamp set and I love the little pumpkin images.  The cardbase is Sahara Sand and I embossed it with the Big Shot and the Pretty Print Textured Embossing Folder.  Then I added a piece of Sweater Weather designer series paper that was matted on Crushed Curry cardstock that was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.
I used different colored Stampin' Write Markers to color the pumpkins directly on the rubber to get all the different colors at once. This piece is matted with Chocolate Chip cardstock. The banner uses the greeting from the same stamp and was stamped on Tangerine Tango cardstock before cutting tails on one end. The final touch was to add a Neutral Button that had a bow tied with Linen Thread
This card turned out so cute and is a fun and whimsical twist to Halloween greetings, I hope you enjoyed.  Remember this card sketch is available all month so please play along and you can share your card on the SSI blog for all to enjoy.
Have a great day!

Pin It!
