Sooo spooky!

Don't you just get eerie just looking at the card? This is called the soot technique. So fun and simple...NO INK required. Take some glossy paper and hold it over a candle. Take a dry rubber stamp and stamp your image on the soot. Taa-Dah!

Happy Halloween....BOO!

Isn't this idea so stinkin cute???? I had soooo much fun making this card...I really like when you can use a product from SU! in multiple ways. Can you tell which punch I used for the ghost...leave a comment and you could win a prize! I used the oval punch (119855 $15.95) for the pumpkins and sponged (101610 $3.95) the sides. The stitching is made with the White gel pen (105021 $3.95) and the stem is a fancy corner punch that I had laying around. The purple paper is Top Note big die cut (my fav!) (113463 $21.95) I CASED this idea from Dawn.

Fall Swap Cards and some Challenges

These are the cards I made for a fall swap with SCS (Split Coast Stampers). You can go there to get a million ideas for any type of papercraft. You can even go to their SU! gallery and look up any SU! stamp set and it will give you hundreds of card ideas for that particular stamp set.

Cute Card Thursday's challenge was to..."Do it yourself"... make something I made a turkey....seemed appropriate.

Stamp Something was "Something punchy".... the feathers and turkey is all made with punches from SU! The circle punch and the window punch.

Stacey's Stampin Page has some wonderful Fall combination colors..

All the paper used for the projects where just scraps that I had laying around. The leaves and felt pumpkins I picked up at Joann's Craft store.
Thanks for stopping by...and take some time to stamp!
