CCMC421 Spooky Fun

Today’s the day!!! Our newest grandson will be here this morning (mom is having a c-section.)  So excited to see his little face and big sister, Quinn, is so excited, too!


I love the sketch for today!  You have to play along with this one!  Upload it to your blog, pinterest or other gallery, link it on our website and have us take a look!


Here’s what I came up with for it!  I just got the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and coordinating Halloween Scenes Edgelits!  I love the fence line and spooky tree!


CCMC421 Spooky Fun

Here are some details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Pumpkin Pie cardstock, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Smoky Slate, some speckles from Timeless Texture were stamped with Smoky Slate Ink.
  • The moon was punched with the 2″ Circle Punch from Daffodil Delight and sponged with Pumpkin Pie Ink around the edges.
  • The pumpkins and large bat were stamped with Memento Black Ink and cut with the Halloween Scenes Edgelits, along with the spooky tree from Basic Black cardstock.  I trimmed the length of the ground a little bit.
  • I stamped a couple of the smaller bats around the moon with Memento Black Ink.
  • Finally, the word “eeek!” was stamped with Memento Black Ink.


LOVE the simple look of this sketch and how my card came together for a little scene!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team to see what they did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!

I just love this fun Halloween scene Connie – I have resisted buying lots of new Halloween sets as it isn\’t as popular here in the UK, but this card may make me cave!! Congrats on becoming a Grandma again – I hope your grandson arrived safe and well.
