My heart is still in Halloween, but I'm physically at the Tacoma Holiday Food & Gift Festival! I hope if you live close enough, you'll come visit Kim and I in our booth in the Exposition Hall. You can print off a coupon to save a buck on admission. We've made all kinds of fun things using Stampin' Up! product at this first-for-us festival.
I was looking through my designer series paper today and noticed the big Summer Starfruit polka-dot pattern in the Patio Party dsp pack. I thought that color would look good for Halloween - especially when I turned to my Color Coach and saw Elegant Eggplant as one of the Creative Combinations.
So I grabbed my Googly Ghouls stamp set and inked it in eggplant. Then I went over most of the mummy's bandages with a white gel pen. I embossed the "Boo" and tried to make it look like it was trailing off, but I didn't want all of the "o's" stamped because it would've made my design off-center. :-)
I embossed the vertical eggplant piece with the spider web, then sponged it with Whisper White Craft ink, as well as all around the card. I'm pretty happy with it.
You can see I used Mary Jo's sketch at Technostamper. I love her sketches, and use them as jumping off points for cards I use in classes, for my clubs, etc. This sketch just went up Monday, so you have till Sunday to add your own creation!
At the end of 13 weeks, I will give 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!
