WPlus9 WCMD Halloween Challenge


Hello!  I'm popping in with an entry for a challenge over on the talented Lea Lawson's blog.  She has a WPlus9 stamp set up for grabs, so you know I have to play for a chance to win!  The challenge is to make a stamped Halloween project.  Easy peasy!

I don't have any fall or Halloween stamps from WPlus9, but I wanted to use some of Dawn's stamps that I do have, so I pulled out two favorites:  Spring Post and Postmarks.  On a kraft panel, I repeatedly stamped the postage in white ink.  I love this image because you can customize it with any small stamps in your collection.  I chose the pumpkin from PTI's Tag-its #7.

I stamped the tag and sentiment from Tag-its #7 onto a Mat Stack 2 label, then added an orange postmark with "October" and "31", from WPlus9's Postmarks.  Orange buttons and some brown and white twine finish the card front.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Orange Zest, Kraft, white), Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Spring Post, Postmarks), Papertrey Ink (Tag-its #7)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso), Clearsnap (Frost White), Ranger (Spiced Marmalade)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 2, Limitless Layers dies)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (buttons), baker's twine, thread

I haven't given you a peek at the inside of a card for a while, so here you go:



Thanks to Lea for hosting this challenge!  And thanks to you for stopping by, friend!
