Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday Challenge #9

WOW ... what a busy weekend I'm having ... but luckily I have a creation to share with you that I made for today's SSDS challenge ... which was a Halloween Theme. In fact, I have two Halloween creations to share with you.




My creations are both created using Rubbernecker images. Aren't they cute!



The scene on this first card was created using SU Home Is Where The Haunt Is stamp set. The sky was created with a little "sky" stamp from Ala Art. I used old olive ink and a sponge pod to create the grass ... another large sponge pod and more mustard ink to make the moon and soft sky ink for the sky. My "Halloween Ghost" was stamped onto white cardstock and colored with Prisma pencils and gamsol. I then used my Fiskars swivel craft knife to cut him out and pop him up in the front.






For my second creation, I used the same method as my first creation. Stamp, color with Prisma & cut out with swivel craft knife. I had had his Nestabilities scallop rectangle laying on my worktable and decided it was perfect to make my happy guy stand out!! It's hard to see in the photo, but I've popped up the TOP portion of the pumpking so it looks like he's ready to leap off the card. My base card is deep hunter green and the Halloween dp is from DCWV and I've used Hobby Lobby purple organza ribbon. The corner treatments are green metal dots by Colorbok.



Thanks for stopping by ... hope to see you again tomorrow!
