Yes, Halloween is just around the corner! I don't usually do Halloween cards, but I just loved this new stamp set Stampin' Up! has in the mini catalog! our family is full of joking and sarcasm so, it totally fits us! This little stamped image also reminds me of my good friend Shari's dog Cosmo. Let's just say...he is a friendly guy! :o)
For the background, I rolled the new Haunting Hill jumbo wheel (#116539) in craft white ink, across the black cardstock and then layered on some Night & Day specialty paper (#116768) layered on Only Orange cardstock strips. The skeleton is stamped with basic and highlighted just a tad with a bashful blue marker. The little dog...(shall we call him Cosmo? ) is colored in with close to cocoa ink. The cute button is a corduroy button in Pumpkin Pie (#114342). I used my scallop punch (#109043) to create a faux 'bite' in the lower right hand corner....just for fun! I layered some white cardstock inside the card so the bite was easy to see.
I didn't edit this photo down....I have a ton of homework to do! Wish me luck!!
I have more plans for this adorable set....coming soon!
