Spooky?

Isn't this week just flyin' by? Can't believe it's already Thursday. Anyway, I got 2 cards for yah today. The first card is for Sketch Saturday and a chance to win on fabulous stamp from Whiff of Joy, so how cool is that?

I decided to use my Mr. Count Dracula from Spooky, Spooky, Spooky set by C.C. Design. I know he's not that spooky but isn't he the cutest bear? I embossed a Going Gray card stock with spider web CB folder and this spooky spider climbed down and scared Mr. Count Dracula. The spiders’ eyes are covered with liquid appliqué.

Stamps: Spooky, Spooky, Spooky and Sugar Plum Spooky Scenes by CC Designs

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, and Going Grey card stock from Stampin' Up

Ink: StāzOn Timber Brown and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Cuttlebug, Spider Web CB embossing folder, MS bat punch, liquid applique

The second card is the card I created the other night for 2Sketches4You, but had a hard time getting a descent shot and I still had the same issue last night...LOL!

The sketch was designed by Laura Davis of A Day in the Life of the Paper Poppy (I dare you say that 3 times). When I was designing this card, I was thinking of using a large image on the right hand side but the circle on the sketch keeps telling me to put 2 googly eyes (I have large googly eyes but thought, nah!) So, while going through my stamps, these two were just begging for me to use them. Hoo Hoo There is from Stampavie and was designed by Rachelle Anne Miler. Same as my first card, both owls’ eyes and the caterpillar are covered with liquid appliqué.

Stamps: Hoo Hoo There by Stampavie, Illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller

Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up and DSP by Elsie (Betty Love Dot)

Ink: StāzOn Jet Black and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Grey ribbon from Target, Heart charms, silver cord, Liquid Applique and Crystal Stickles
