Scrap 'N Stamp Spooktacular Blog Hop!!!

Hello, my crafty peeps and welcome to the Spooktacular Blog Hop for Scrap 'N Stamp Canada!! This time around we are switching things up a bit. We are not only offering prizes for comments on each blog stop but there is a challenge going on as well on the SNS Challenge FB Page where you can also win prizes! How exciting!!



This month's blog hop has to do with Halloween, but with a bit of a twist. We know that not everyone makes Halloween cards and may not have the supplies to do so. So, we are going for more of a colour challenge. In other words, if you participate in the FB Challenge, you're project doesn't have to be Halloween themed. Just find some inspiration in these 3 Distress Ink colours...Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin and Wilted Violet.


For my project, I actually went with the colours as well as Halloween. I have the sweetest die from Impression Obsession called Bat With Sign.  The price point is awesome on this die and is a lot bigger than I anticipated!!


I used the 3 colours of Distress Ink plus Black Soot to ink up the bat. Isn't that bat adorable??  For the background, I used the Birch Trees Die from Tim Holtz and cut it out of white cardstock.


I added a bit of shading around each tree using some Warm Grey markers.  This added a bit of dimension.  I adhered the Birch Trees onto a piece of light grey cardstock which was a bit smaller than the die, and cut the excess off with scissors.


I then layered that onto a piece of black and white striped paper from My Favourite Things.  The entire piece was put onto a white A2 card base.  My cute Bat With the Purple Sign was popped up on foam adhesive while the other two I adhered with liquid glue.


This little cutie just screamed googly eyes to me!!  I added quite a bit of shimmer with the Wink of Stella Pen to each sign.


A few purple sequins from my stash finish this card off!! Up next on the hop is the incredibly talented JESSICA!!!
