Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge 247: Spooky Fun

Happy Friday!  I'm heading to a three day crop today and I'm so excited to get away with a friend and have some fun girl time, which lots of uninterrupted crafting (plus there is always so much inspiration from the other attendees it's fabulous!!!)  Before I head out I decided to play along with this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge and since I had Halloween supplies out on my desk my eye was immediately drawn to all the fun I could have with those circle elements.

I started with Old Olive cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Basic Black cardstock as a mat behind the brick piece which is from the Halloween Night Speciality Designer Series Paper (this paper is fabulous and works great for the background all on it's own).  I stamped the greeting from the Spooky Fun stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink directly on the DSP and then wrapped some Pumpkin Pie baker's twine from the Halloween Nights Baker's Twine package for a fun element.

Next I moved on to the circles.  I started by punching the middle circle using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and another pattern from the DSP package (these houses are so cute) and then attached it with a dimensional.  On the right I used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch to punch a piece of Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper and then used the edgelits that coordinate with the stamp set, Halloween Scenes Edgelits to cut the little bat out of Basic Black cardstock and then attached the bat with a dimensional.  For the left circle I again used the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and stamped the tombstones and bat using Basic Black ink and then used Stampin' Write Markers to color it in before attaching it the cardfront.

This card looks really complicated but using all the products in the Halloween Nights product suite make it a breeze and so fun!  Halloween projects are definitely on my To Do list at the crop this weekend so I'm looking forward to make several more items with all these products and can't wait to share them.

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today's card:

Have a wonderful weekend!
