I started with a Very Vanilla card, Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp, Champagne Glimmer Paper, and a sentiment from Wacky Wishes (hostess set). I also used this sketch from Create with Connie & Mary.
This Create with Connie & Mary sketch challenge closes Wednesday, August 29 at noon (EST). At least I was on time for this one!
I enjoyed making an Early Espresso scalloped tulle flower for my card. I used a Jumbo Sticky Round, but it was too big for what I wanted, so I punched a scallop circle out of the middle and peeled off the pink layer to start my flower.
I folded the tulle in half and twisted it, adhering it to the center of the circle. Then you just keep twisting the tulle and going around in a circle. Any ends may be tucked under at the end, when you peel off the back side of the Jumbo Sticky Round.
Here's a closer shot of the card. You can see some rounded corners, how Frankie is green (he's darker in person) and holding the Happy Halloween sign, and the "ransom" letters on the sentiment, which I think is a cute touch!
Each week, you're invited to add your Halloween creation to my blog hop, along with the code near the bottom of each post. When you add the code to your blog while you are in the edit HTML mode, your readers can play along, leave comments, and view the samples right from YOUR blog!
At the end of 13 weeks, I'll be giving one person a $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate! The more times you enter the blog hop, the better your chances of taking home the Grand Prize. You also get a ticket just for displaying The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop badge on your blog. Whoo hoo!
Oh, and just one more thing - I'm adding this to What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW). I haven't played along in ages. It's fun sharing just how messy a desk gets while crafting. Here's mine:
I had to mount my Googly Ghouls set before I could use it! You can see a pile of clear stamps on the left with my fan (a necessity since it's hot in the loft), some leftover items from my bat popcorn cover (I do plan on making more!), and wipes, black StazOn and refill, containers of brads and mini glue dots.
