Bootastic Stamps and Matching Dies by MaMa Elephant

How precious are these little monsters???

My card was made using a new stamp set at the 7KIDS Store  by Mama Elephant called Bootastic!   And it has matching dies! LOVE!!!! 

I colored the little monsters with Copic Markers. I added sparkle to their hair with a Wink of Stella glitter pen. The little spider and bats were stamped with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with black embossing powder.
The spider web (source unknown) was stamped with Versamark ink onto Vellum paper. I carefully heat embossed the stamped vellum with white embossing powder. I flipped it over and stamped the sentiment on the other side. It gives the spider web an eerier look IRL. 
The background was made by blending Mustard SeedChipped SapphireDusty Concord and Black Soot Distress inks with my round blending tool. I wanted it to look like a spooky sky!     

And there it is......Bootastic!!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Accessories: Wink of Stella Glitter Pen; Vellum Paper, Black Lace, Halloween Washi Tape, Baker's Twine

Friends with Darcie's Heart & Home

Hello everyone, here's my card for the new "Anything Goes" challenge over on our 7kids challenge blog.  We also have a twist this time and it's using Ribbon or Lace.  I used the white lace in the background, it kinda looks like a fence. What do you think?  I also added bakers twine to make little ribbon like bows on the little girls pig tails.  What will you do with the challenge?  we would love to see it.  Have a great day and happy card making :)

Whooo Wants A Treat?

Jo here, a new challenge is up over at the 7Kids Challenge Blog. The challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist (Ribbon or Lace)". 

So "Whooo Wants A Treat?". The sentiment and colored owl image is from Darcie's Heart & Home Owl-O-Ween stamp set. This stamp set goes hand in hand with the Jillibean Soup Owloween 6x6 Paper Pad and Pea Pod Parts.

I used this lollipop treat die with the designer papers and some black cardstock. To decorate the lollipop sticks, I took some black & white striped and polka dotted straws, cut them in half and slid them over the stick. 

I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and trimmed it out with a 1 1/2" circle punch. For the "Optional Twist", I used ribbon to tie the treats closed.

This was really fun and I have a lot more suckers to wrap up =)

Come join our challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!

Happy Wednesday!
