Hello and a happy new week to you all! As you are reading this I'm either driving home from Michigan or sleeping the day away, lol! I'll be leaving Michigan after my last evening class on Sunday and driving straight thru--I hope to be home around 4-5 am! So I'll be catching up on my sleep today and settling back in at home and catching up! I'll tell you more about my trip and classes in the next post, 'kay!? So settle in, rev up those broomsticks (if you have one, hee hee) and fly along with us all............
Today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fabulous "Bats & Brooms" Blog Hop for you and all the projects will be Halloween or Fall themed! You can stop by the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog for all the hop details! Make sure to make it to the end for the next stop on the hop and maybe some candy for your trick-or-treating bad, hee hee!
I used a couple fabulous Halloween Stamps from the "So Spooky" Collection at Magnolia-licious--see both the category for So Spooky and Halloween for all the Halloween Mag stamps. I used "Halloween Edwin" and the "Spider Web" for the scene part of this card. The fun branches and tombstones are older CC Designs stamps I've had forevah, but check out the Magnolia branches/tree here (I couldn't find mine to use, sobbb)! I handmade a cloud template and then sponged the spooky sky with different gray inks. A few sparkly bats flying through the air and lil' Edwin finds himself in a spooky graveyard.
The cool gate is the large MS Halloween gate punch which I punched out of black cs and then stamped the sentiment on the front (sentiment from a M.Frances set). I also sponged the gate (and bats) with white ink--I scored the fence on both sides and attached it to the back of my card/scene so that it rounded out in the front. This is what makes the card free-standing! I also spritzed it with Vanilla Smooch Spritz so it all has a subtle sparkle to it.
I'll have the girly-spooky version for you later this week so check back in! Blog Candy Alert: But for now how would you like to win a set of MS punches (corner and border) cobweb punches, a pack of Cosmo Cricket Halloween paper and 2 stamps from Magnolia-licious of your choice? Tell me what your favorite Halloween costume was or you created for someone (don't celebrate Halloween, tell me your fave fall food)? Leave a comment on this post only by Wednesday to win!
