Hey All! Wow, has this been a week for blog candy! Sharon at No Time to Stamp has been celebrating her 1 year Blogaversary and has had several give aways (some still going on so head on over!) and then there are others that you will learn are helping the celebration with blog candy of their own! So I guess mine is right on time, huh? I'm celebrating my blog going over the 5,000 mark! And it's all because of you! So to say thanks for being so loyal and coming to see me, I'm giving away some more blog candy. And I think it is pretty good blog candy too! But first to the card. . .
Yes, it is another Halloween card. . .When I was cruising around Splitcoast a couple of weeks ago, I saw the stamp I used on today's card for the first time. It was one of those moments when you say "I have to have that stamp!!!!" It is a Stampin Up stamp, and I don't know anyone locally who sells Stampin Up. So I saw my good friend Tammy Hershberger online and asked her if she knew anyone. Sure enough she did and she hooked me up. So here's the card. . .
How cute are these guys?!?!?! I LOVE EM!!! This stamp is called Tableau of Terror and comes with the main stamp and the sentiment stamp. Don't forget to click on the pictures to get more detail. This one was so much fun to color. The stamp itself is just the characters. I added the moon background. Take a look at the picture of them close up below:
I can't think of any stamp that I'm more fond of! Every time I look at it I just smile from ear to ear. They are so adorable. Can't you just see opening your door on Halloween to see this group standing there? LOL I used colored pencils to color the image, drew the moon on the same paper, cut the image out and matted it on standard card stock. The paper is from The Paper Company (I think). I used my corner rounder on one of the mats, and used orange brads from Making Memories. I then mounted the whole thing with foam squares on both the mat and the image. I then mounted the sentiment with black embossed photo corners, added some orange crystals, and done! Here is another close up of the sentiment detail:
If you go to Splitcoast and search for "Tableau of Terror", you'll be able to see a few other creations made with this set. It is so new, there aren't that many out there yet. Anyway, hope you enjoyed the card.
Now, on to the BLOG CANDY! Here's what's up for grabs:
A set of 16 botanical stamps from See Ds! I LOVE this set! I can't believe the quality of the stamps. You'll also get the ribbon box shown up there (ribbon not included - I put it in there for display purpose). Ribbon comes out on both sides and it's great to organize the ribbon you use the most. You'll also receive a stamp set from Inkadinkado up there on the bottom right of the photo. I have all of the stamps in this series, and I love them. You will be seeing some upcoming cards in the near future that I made using this series. You'll also receive a package of Karen Foster's Boot Loopy brads. There are 40 pieces in the package and it comes with scrapper's floss. All items are brand new and purchased for this give away.
