It’s Thursday, and time to play with the Sketch Team at Pals Paper Arts! This week’s sketch is courtesy of Susan Itell. Ever since purchasing the Spooky Fun Bundle, I’ve been itching to create a card using the Halloween Scenes Edgelits. This sketch, with its circle, seemed like the perfect backdrop. I hope you enjoy today’s card!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 5-1/4″ square when folded.
- Setting the scene! Soft Suede was used for the Fence, while Tip Top Taupe was accidentally selected for the Spooky Tree. I actually thought I was reaching for Crumb Cake, but didn’t realize I had Taupe until after the tree was cut. But you know what…I like it! As for the moon, So Saffron was my yellow of choice, edged with just a tinge of Pumpkin Pie ink.
- Yipes, stripes! What I love about Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers is how well the patterns coordinate with each other. These two small prints work perfectly together!
- It’s all about the details! Halloween Enamel Dots and Black Metallic Thread add interest to the open space at the top of the card.
The past few weeks have been filled with lots of exciting news. First, I promoted to Gold status with Stampin’ Up!, thanks to the promotion of my wonderful downline member, Beth McCullough. You may know Beth from her Stamping Mom blog. I also earned the Thailand incentive trip, and for that I have you, my customers to thank. AND if that was not enough, the icing on the cake is that we have a new champion at our house. I would like to introduce you to Champion Anscha-Happy Tail’s You Don’t Know Jack! Jackie will begin his quest for his Grand Champion title in a few months.
Of course, there is never a dull moment here as we continue our whole house remodeling project. Hopefully, the first and second stories will be completed, except for refinishing the floors, by the time the snow flies here in SE Iowa. We’ll be tackling the basement next, followed by the garage in the spring. Jackie has been a huge help with the painting, as you can tell from his Sherwin William’s Accessible Beige eyebrow!
