Spooky....but oh so cute!

Hello peeps! I have a card to share with you all that I made using sketch #27, the last one (*sniff, sniff*) from Seize the Sketch. Lesley, the creator of the challenge blog, has decided to discontinue the blog. I haz a sad. But not to worry, she has her crafty irons in other fires, so to speak, so you will see her around the blogosphere. ☺  So, onto my card:

 the inside:

I decided to do the faux cracked glass technique on these images. I've done it only once before, and ironically, I used this same Frankie stamp to make it. I literally had just enough clear embossing powder to put 4 coats on each picture. (There's a shopping trip in my near future!)

 (Frankie and his bride are so stinkin' cute!)

(Ooh, shiny!)

For the star element on the sketch, I used a pompom spider sticker. I broke out the ol' Slice machine for the orange label, punched holes in each side, and strung baker's twine through them, taping the ends on the back side of the panel. Both 'picture frames' and the label are popped up using thin 3D foam squares. (They are half the thickness of the regular foam squares, and give just a hint of elevation off the top of the card. Love 'em!)

I hope you get the chance to play along with this last challenge. It's a great sketch!

Ok, that's all for now. Time to start my day, since I finished my tea. ☺ I hope you have a great day today, and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh my...this is just oh so cute! I love your adorable little monster people, so fun.

  2. What a great project! It made me smile. Thanks for the kind comment you left at mine x

  3. Ha, they are adorable! You know I love me some Halloween! Love the cracked glass effect you used!

  4. I love these two stamps and how you've coloured them perfectly! So awesome.

  5. Ha! This is so cute, in a spooky kind of way of course. ;)

    Thanks so much for playing with our last (sniff, sniff) Seize The Sketch. :)

  6. I am in LOVE with this! The cracked glass is too perfect for a Halloween card. (Hey, fun tip? If you have Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, you can do the cracked glass technique with it too. I imagine Glossy Accents would work too if that's what you've got. Takes a while to dry but BOOM crackle r us!)


Thanks for visiting! I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
