My Stampin' Up! Classes

Join this Stylin' Stampin' Squad for hoppin' Halloween ideas

 
Halloween never gets old. But you can mix it up a bit with a color that's not so traditional for the holiday, like Island Indigo on this heat embossed silly bat.
 

Thanks to my fellow SU! demo Heather, I have joined with the talented members of the Stylin' Stampin' Squad for a Halloween blog hop! Welcome, if you've dropped in from Nancy's Momma B Stampin blog. You all know I adore Halloween and all of the trimmings. Now you can jump from blog to blog to take in a variety of ideas. Hopefully you'll try making some too!
 
I used a color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and a sketch challenge at Freshly Made Challenges for my Tricky Treats card. Both challenges end October 8. My favorite part of this card is the Delicate Designs embossed strip of Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock that I sanded and trimmed around. I love texture! The indigo banner was run through the Perfect Polka Dots folder.
 
A jumbo sticky round is holding the Tangerine Tango rosette to the card front. Those suckers are strong!
 


I had a few flat glass marbles in my stampin' drawer and thought it'd be fun to stamp some Tricky Treat images, glue them to the back of the marbles and add magnets. My daughter has dibs on these already! lol
