ColourQ #107

This is my second post for today--please scroll down for Karen's virtual birthday party & blog hop!



Hi there, friends!  Are you getting in the Halloween spirit yet?  In our house, we love Halloween and throw a costume party every year that just seems to keep growing.  It's coming up this weekend, so I've got to get busy planning a menu, finding a costume, and making goodie bags for the kids.  It's always fun, but a bit stressful until it's all done.

This week's ColourQ challenge is another bright and festive combo that called out for another card using my cute Halloween stamps from Michaels.


I've seen a few designers use a "filmstrip" recently, and I thought it would be a fun idea to CASE on this card. 

I would have liked to use a larger sentiment, but I was shocked to realize that I don't have any Halloween greetings besides those in PTI's Tiny Treats:  Halloween and Tag-its #7.  So I stamped the bats and a star (also from TT:  Halloween) framing the sentiment to keep it from getting lost in all of the white space.

The card front and colored squares are debossed with the Linen impression plate for a little bit of texture on an otherwise flat and easy-to-mail card.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Michaels (vampire, witch, mummy, bats), Papertrey Ink (Tiny Treats:  Halloween)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry), Copic marker
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories:  Queen & Co. (rhinestone)

Be sure to stop by the ColourQ blog for the rest of the DT samples and to link up your creation!

Thanks for visiting!
