Bare branch, Spooktacular


I thought I'd take a little different twist with the fabulous new Cling Jack-O'Lanterns set from the A*Muse*A*Palooza release. I stamped the jack o'lantern faces with Colorbox white pigment ink and embossed with glow-in-the-dark embossing powder. Can't wait til it gets dark so I can see the faces glow!

And since I was out of town yesterday for the first day of amuse-bouches, I'm making up for lost time with this next card...


It doesn't show up well in this photo but the slate paper is actually mounted onto a natural white (vanilla) 4-bar notecard. I used both the new Bare Branch as well as winter tree to create a tree scene with a small crow flying away into the night. I used a 2nd generation inking method (you know, stamp off first, then stamp onto your cardstock) with winter tree so the bare branch pops out. I did the same with the circle as the moon, then added a bit of color with last year's fun sentiment stamped onto some orange crush.

I hope you've been enjoying the little tidbits so far. I look forward to checking out the A Muse news blog every day and seeing what my fellow Creative Team members are sharing. Thanks for stopping by!
