Wooohoooo it's Friday!!! Here comes the weekend.

Today I am sharing with you a theme I normally would not do. Not that I don't like it, I just have a hard time creating projects for this theme. I love browsing stamping blogs and yesterday while reading through Kellie Winnell's blog I caught up on some of her posts from last week. One of the posts was an adorable box that I did a couple weeks ago as well on my blog. Kellie did the box for a challenge by Pals Paper Arts. This site is a group of dedicated Stampin' Up! demos who only use SU products but host challenges where they welcome anyone to join in using products from any company. So I jumped on over to the Pals Paper Arts site and found out that this week the challenge is a Halloween theme. Yikes, like I said, not my forte but I thought, hey why not give it a shot.

So a little bit about the card itself, I used textured Pumpkin Pie cardstock for my base and added a layer of Chocolate Chip on top of it. I pulled out my one and only retired package of Halloween designer paper and selected a sheet with bunch of 'Halloween' words. I then coloured and stamped my bat in Chocolate Chip Ink from the set Batty for You. Poor little dude looks like he is missing some fur, no wonder he looks scared. LOL I punched him out using the 1" circle punch and then punched out a piece of textured Pumpkin Pie using the 1 1/4" punch. Finally I layered this on a scallop of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I paper pierced in the rounds of the scallops and then I popped the image on my card using Dimensionals. For one final touch, I added a bow of Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by each day or each week to check out my creations and thank you to all who leave comments. I really appreciate your kind words.

Till next week.....

  1. Very cute!!
    Hey can we do a Halloween theme for our last Stampin' Club in September? I loved the 'sour cream' containers we did in the spring - I think I may do up some in Halloween paper for Liam's class :)

  2. Love your Mr. Bat.
