Twick or Tweet

Is it Halloween time yet? I don't know about the rest of you but I'm a BIG fan of Halloween, I like cute and fun Halloween not creepy blood and guts Halloween. So when I saw the new Halloween stamp sets in the up coming Stampin' Up Holiday Mini catalog I knew I would have fun creating with them. This first card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge which was a little difficult for me because I like things all straight and lined up and the sketch called for two strips on different angles. This card turned out to have way too many layers on it, more than I thought I was going to use but I liked the Old Olive Top Note layer because it added more color.



Supplies: Twick or Tweet, Cast-A-Spell DSP, Top Note Sizzix die, Nestie, Circle punch, Corner tag punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Piercer, Ribbon, Brad, Dazzling Diamonds (on the stars in hat), Aqua brush, Pop dots. Colors: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Only Orange, Summer Sun, Whisper White.



This second card was created using the sketch from the Stamping 411 site, this is the first time I've participated in one of their sketch challenges and I enjoyed it. This was a fun and easy card to create, I used the Cast-A-Spell designer paper along the top of the card and rolled the Haunting Hill wheel with Old Olive ink on the bottom of the card. I love this image from the Twick or Tweet stamp set, it makes me smile, after stamping the image in black I used my aqua brush with a little Old Olive on it and added some color. I think it would be fun if someone came out with some glow in the dark ink for Halloween, would that be neat?


Supplies: Twick or Tweet, Haunting Hill wheel, All Holidays, Cast-A-Spell DSP, Nestie, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Brads, Piercer, Aqua brush, Ribbon, Pop dots. Colors: Basic Black, Old Olive, Whisper White.


Thanks so much for visiting!
