Happy Halloween!

Boo! :D

I greatly enjoy Halloween; costumes. pumpkins, candy...fun times, my friends. Now if I could just find the house that gives out coffee...

I had so much fun coloring this little kitty in the pumpkin! I could also see one of our cats doing this, given the chance...I cannot find the name of this stamp set, though. Google has failed me! Noooo! If anyone knows what she's called, will you leave me a comment please?

I love the Halloween chevron paper, but the pattern is a little bold on its own. I used the Pretty Pink Posh stitched rectangle die to cut off a piece and a matching piece of vellum to soften it. To hide the glue marks on the vellum, I carefully added adhesive under the sequins stacks, the banner, and the kitty.

The kitty and her pumpkin were colored in with my Spectrum Noir markers, then popped onto the background with foam adhesive.

I stamped the Pumpkin Time! sentiment that came with the set in Memento Espresso Brown ink onto a scrap of this lovely ivory linen paper, then die-cut it with the Mama Elephant banner die. I really love that thing. Of course I HAD to add sequins, so for seasonal flair I stacked the 6mm tangerine and the 4mm onyx sequins from PPP in the corners, then added just some onyx ones to frame the sentiment. Done!

I'll be taking my little ninja turtle dinosaur rider trick or treating tonight (and collecting a candy tax). Be sure to stop by the Mountain Plains Crafters Facebook page all day today for fun Halloween treats!

Happy Crafting!
