Clearly...It's Spooky!

Well, not really, they're actually cute...don't you think so? This was the Technique Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers last week. The challenge was to make an Acetate Card. I was able to make these over the weekend and share it here.

These cards will be for someone special in the family from my daughter Toni ... hence, "from your favorite little pumpkin". Love this saying, and that is one of the reasons why I bought this
from Papertrey Ink.

Both main images, Cater-Mouse and Trick or Cheese are from House-Mouse Designs and are stamped on Staz-On Ink. The bats background from the Cater-Mouse card is from Fright Night by MFT (My Favorite Things). The bats background from the Trick or Cheese is from Spooky Sweets by Papertrey Ink.

Both images are colored using Prismacolor Colored Pencils. For the Trick or Cheese card, I punched holes to look like Cheese... I did not like it at first but my daughter thought it was cute. And of course, finished it with some ribbon.

Stamps: Cater-Mouse and Trick or Cheese from House-Mouse Designs, Bats from Fright Night by MFT and sentiment from Spooky Sweets by Papertrey Ink.

Paper: Green Galore, Basic Black, Whisper White on Cater-Mouse card, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Yoyo Yellow and Whisper White on Trick or Cheese card.

Ink: StāzOn Jet Timber Brown and StāzOn Jet Black

Accessories: 1/4" circle and 1/2" circle punch, acetate, orange and basic black ribbon.

And I wanted to share my Birthday Cake, well, I mean show you the picture of my birthday cake. Nothing special but I've always loved this cake growing up from Goldilocks back home (Philippines) ... doesn't it look Yummy? It is and I still have some at home =)

By the way, thanks Mom!
