Nite Owl DSP

I've been making sure to check out Technostampers Monday Lunchtime Sketches each week, they have been fun and get my Monday morning creativity going!  Today's sketch (TSSC141) was no exception…very fun!

One of the sheets in in the Nite Owl Designer Paper has spooky ads printed all over it!  It looks like the front page of a newspaper.  So, I decided to cut out one of the ads to make my card!  There is absolutely NO stamping on this card!  Just Designer Paper, a few markers, some ribbon, jewels and cardstock!  How quick and easy is that?


I started by cutting out the Candelabra ad from the Nite Owl Designer Paper with my Paper Trimmer and layered it on Basic Black cardstock.  I cut a piece of the herringbone print Designer Paper in Nite Owl for the background, then layered it on Sahara Sand.  The base of the card is Old Olive which picks up the color in the herringbone print!  I used my Stampin' Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Sahara Sand to lightly color the candelabra.  I used some 5/8 Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon and did a little ribbon treatment on the side.  Finally, I added Rhinestone jewels on the edge of the ribbons and in the center of the Candelabra for a little added sparkle!


Fun, quick and easy Halloween card to make!
