And now for todays eye candy!

This card was fun and easy to create. I started by cutting out my pumpkin shape with the die. Next I stamped the pumpkin in using memento black ink. I then colored with copic markers. The background was achieved by stamping he fence scene with Versamark, and then embossing with clear embossing powder. I layered the stamped paper onto orange and diamond halloween papers. I then stamped the phrase, added flowers and phrase to the card, adhered the pumpking to the bottom right as shown. this card when finished is measures at 4 by 5.5
Mary had fun creating this card. And it was quick and easy to do. She first found her assortment of Halloween scrapbook papers. Punched in a shape with her Cricut for the frame of the pumpkin. Layered the green frame to her patterned paper. She then cut out her pumpkin using orange scrapbook paper. And stamped the open pumpkin and chose which face she was going to insert. This card is spooky and fun!
Who doesn't love a treat for halloween. We have wrapped a hersheys candy bar and decorated it. We started with a panel of black cardstock paper that is 5" by 4.5". We cut the edged with a Martha Stewart punch. Then layered a purple pannel onto the black after it was wrapped. We stamped out the pharse, and distressed the edges with distress ink. The pumpkin was cut using our pumpkin die, and then stamped.
