Happy Monday, hope your weekend was well. I didn't get much accomplished except house cleaning, however, on Friday I did get some stamping girl time in with Kerri & Mary's holiday stamp-a-stack. I'll show those cards a little later, when I start bringing out the ideas for Christmas.
I came across an old swap card that I liked the layout for & decided I wanted to use these cute little guys from the Spooky Bingo Bits set that is retired. The only problem is I couldn't find a circle that worked with the sketch, so I'm going to keep searching for something circular around my house & try again later. Again, I reiterate I'm not one to do Halloween cards & so I'm not too sure why I have so many of those type of sets except I was talked into getting them by my brain after seeing all the cute samples out there. Yep, that's my story & I'm sticking to it.
Since that sketch didn't work out I remembered seeing another sketch a few weeks ago that I thought would work & added to it. I used sketch 215 over on The Paper Players blog. You can head over there to see what others made for this sketch.
I decided I wanted to use orange, green, purple & black colors, so I did head into my scrap pile & found two retired colors Only Orange & Green Galore, I thought about using Lovely Lilac too but didn't want to make too much noise upstairs & wake up the hubby, so I settled on Elegant Eggplant with a side of Basic Black.
The base of this card is Elegant Eggplant. I then punched 9 Postage Stamp squares out in Basic Black & arranged them like the sketch but used 3 rows instead. I then stamped the bingo bits onto Only Orange & Green Galore, then punched them out using the 1" Circle punch. I place them all on the Basic Black squares, the middle BOO circle is attached using a dimensional to pop it up a bit. I finished off the card using the Happy Halloween stamp from And Many More.
Have a great day!
