CardPatterns #132 & CAS-ual Fridays #19


Hello, friends!  I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has commented or emailed to congratulate me on my big win during PTI's release festivities.  I am still somewhat in shock and utterly thrilled to have so many fabulous new stamp sets coming my way.  Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

I've managed to be a little more productive in my craft room this week, so I have a card to share that was inspired by two challenges.  First is a square sketch at Card Patterns, and second is the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use paper piecing on a fall-themed project.

I picked up several adorable Halloween stamps in the dollar bin at Michaels a couple of weeks ago, including this cute smiling ghost.  I knew he would look great dressed up in different patterns!

I chose three dotted papers from DCWV's Amber Autumn Stack to piece the ghosts.  I stamped them again onto white cardstock and added some shading with Copic markers.  The panel is adhered with foam dots, with a pinked rose border along the bottom.

I added a simple "boo!" sentiment with stickers and tucked a scrap of black ribbon in the top corner.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (True Black, white), Stampin' Up! (Regal Rose)
Patterned paper:  DCWV (Amber Autumn Stack)
Stamps:  Michaels (ghost)
Ink:  Inkadinkadoo (Black), Copic markers
Tools:  pinking shears
Accessories:  Michaels (letter stickers, ribbon)

This card just makes me smile!  How about you?

Thanks for stopping by tonight!  Have a great one!

This is full, love that you're thinking ghosts for fall :) And yes, still jealous on the big win, but that's okay, you'll put them to use instead of letting them collect dust.
