Another Challenge

I see my free time becoming I wanted to take advantage of a couple of challenges.   Today I made a card for Craft Project Central.   I enjoy this challenge and anytime stamping takes you out of your comfort zone, it's a blessing!   This is the Card Challenge Sketch...

It is really a fabulous sketch!

I love Halloween.   It's one of my favorite holidays.  Here is my creation!

Of course I had to make it a little more complicated than need be!   I wanted something fun behind those doors.   I love hearing the door bell ring on Halloween and as I answer it with candy; my favorite part is seeing all the kids in costumes.   Their eyes are full of wonderment and excited to see how much candy they can receive.   So I had to try to put that feeling into my card.

I had the idea about the doors, so I had to get out my BIG SHOT, you gotta have a big shot - it's the best investment I have made!   I needed a door of some sort, so I found my Peekaboo Frames Bigz L die.   Ran  a piece Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Pumpkin Pie cardstock through the Big Shot.   I love the new Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP so I had to have that paper be part of this card.  This DSP is found in the NEW Holiday Catalog.    I love black and gray...two great colors together.   I wanted to give it a little texture so I put the DSP in the Spider Web TIEF and after I ran it through the Big Shot,  I sprayed it with some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed in alcohol.   It is hard to see the sparkle from this picture.   Also from the Holiday Catalog, the Googly Ghouls clear stamp set.   I used Versa Mark and Black Embossing powder and stamped  the three images on Very Vanilla.   Punched them out with 1 1/4" Circle Punch.    I placed the three circles on the card and adhered them with Tombo glue and our snail.   I stamped the Black embossed BOOOO on Basic Gray and punch it out with Modern Label Punch.   I punched out a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock cut it in half and  give it a layered look.   Adhered it with a couple of dimensionals.   Added the 1/2" Black/Gray Striped Satin Ribbon on both corners.  I layered the DSP to Black Cardstock and then both to Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I took some Rhinestone Basic Jewels and added it to my three images.   I wanted to give them a glassy look!    I added the Googly Eyes to the BOOOO words.

When I got done, the card looked a little dull...I needed something on the front of the Peekaboo frames.   I wanted "trick or treat" but I didn't have a stamp that said that.   My hand writing isn't the best so I thought of the next best thing...WICKED COOL CLEAR STAMP SET!   I took the words "have a WICKED halloween" and put it on the outside of all the Peekaboo gave me the effect I wanted..."that waiting to see who is outside my door on Halloween!"
