A Bootiful Occasion Halloween Club Card

What is it about purple, green, orange an black?  LOL, it always makes me think of bright colorful costumes worn by children (and some adults) on Halloween!  I’ve made my fair share of Halloween costumes… racking up 26 one fall!!  The next year I ONLY made costumes for MY children!

Today’s card is one we’ll make at the First Wednesday Card Club.  I don’t really celebrate Halloween anymore now that the kids are grown… and have never been big on Halloween cards, but I suppose that may change some day when we have grandkids though!)two designer series pattern packs used for contrastPolka Dot Parade and In Color 2011-13 Designer Series Paper Stacks were used on today’s Bootiful Occasion Halloween Card along with Whisper White and Lucky Limeade Card Stock.lables collection framelits and big shot die cuttingThe focal image was die cut using a big shot die-cutting machine with a Labels Collection Framelit before sponging along all edges using a Lucky Limeade Classic Ink Pad and stampin’ sponge wedge.

I wanted the boot to appear a little more dimensional… so after coloring it with rich razzleberry, calypso coral and lucky limeade markers, I carefully outlined just inside the stamp line with the lucky limeade marker… right on top of the rich razzleberry ink!use a stampin' pierce mat and paper piercing essentialsJust for fun, three black brads were added along the left edge and DSP leaving two spacer holes between each piercing for placement.need to color in the spiders hat and hat band, LOLFunny how photos always make you realize you forgot something… I stamped the spider on wisteria wonder card stock so I wouldn’t have to color in his body… but fully intended to color his hat and hat band!  Better fix that before the club meeting!  The spider is just one of six fun images from the kidoodles stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your comments and enjoy reading them all!
