* This is my second post for today. Please scroll down to see my Kraft Journal project for this week.
Today is a big day at my house. Paige and Joanne are joining me today here at my house to wrap up our annual Halloween Haunted House Tour & Lunch. I’ve got the house looking pretty spooktacular, if I do say so myself. I’m hoping to wow the girls enough to be declared the winner of the house tour for the second year in a row. I promise to share some photos soon. In the mean time, keep your fingers crossed for me.
So not only am I hosting my big lunch today, but I have cards to share, as well. This one features some of my favorite stamps from Prickely Pear Rubber Stamps.
I just love the adorable red rubber Witches Post stamp I used for the main image here. I know I’ve shown it to you before, but today I used it in a different way by punching out just a portion of the image with my 1 3/4″ circle punch. Talk about an easy and fun way to highlight certain focal parts of your stamps.
The image is stamped onto patterned paper and colored with pencils and Gamsol. I popped it up with foam adhesive and layered it with cardstock stickers and labels die cut from my Spellbinders Labels Twenty.
Used a mixture of black and orange patterned papers and tied the whole up with purple seam binding ribbon. Added a rub-on sentiment banner popped on foam adhesive for dimension.
And my favorite part? The Small Whiskers kitty I stamped on the side of the sentiment. He just cracks me up. I colored his eyes yellow to give him a spooky glow.
I just adore the range of fun Halloween images available at Prickely Pear Rubber Stamps, in both acrylic and red rubber designs. For more great projects, be sure to check out the blog today to see what the rest of the team has cooked up for you.
And wish me luck on my big day! Thanks so much for stopping by.
