Here's a fun halloween card. I used the "Home Is Where the Haunt Is" stamp set, which is retired, but you could just as easily use the "House Of Haunts" set from the current catalog. I started with a piece of Summer Sun cardstock and, from top to bottom, sponged on More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip classic ink. The moon was added by using temporary adhesive to affix a scrap punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch before sponging. Once I was finished with my sponging, I removed the scrap to reveal the moon. The house was stamped with Basic Black craft ink and then heat embossed with SU!'s Detail Black Embossing Powder. The witch was stamped in Basic Black classic ink and the trees were stamped in Chocolate Chip classic ink. I layered my finished image on Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then affixed it to a card base of Elegant Eggplant. I really needed to get some birthday cards done and I DON'T need any halloween cards, but they're just so stinkin' fun to make!!!
