Hello and welcome to another challenge from the Fusion Card Challenge! This week’s photo inspiration is perfectly timed…
Isn’t it fun? I wish my mantel looked like that 😉 Remember, you can use the photo or sketch for your inspiration, or combine them and use both! I used the sketch and the theme of the photo, just not the same colors:
And I discovered something…I only have ONE stamp set that is specifically Halloween oriented…crazy, right? But it is an adorable stamp set called Happy Haunting by Papertrey Ink. The set has so many options for the facial expressions, I couldn’t pick just one! I generally don’t like a very spooky Halloween anymore, but I did throw in ONE grumpy ghost 🙂
The frame is from a die set called Center Style-Masculine (also by PTI). I chose it because I could layer it on top of some cute pattern paper and let it peek through. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark in and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I framed the frame (!) with another pattern paper and then popped it all off of a base of Smoky Slate. I threw in some sparkly enamel dots for a bit more fun. And speaking of fun…
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post and I hope you have a chance to see what the rest of the Fusion Card Challenge design team has created for you!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
