Technostamper Challenge #234 - Halloween

Good Morning!

Playing around with some of the new Halloween items in the Fall catalog.

I love this fall designer paper with the orange and brown plaids!  I see great fall ideas with this paper!

Howlstooth & Scaringbone - what a great name for Halloween paper!

I coordinated this paper with Tangerine Tango, Black and Very Vanilla cardstock to make this card.
I was planning to use my spider web embossing folder for the vanilla piece, but I don't have it with me at my temporary Creative Playground...  So I used the spider web stamp from the retired set Web Wishes!

I used the Toxic Treats set to make the center piece with the headstone.  I stamped the image in black on vanilla cardstock.  I then stamped it a second time in tangerine tango and cut out the headstone to add a little dimension.  I layered this piece onto two pieces of black cardstock that I punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.

Stampin' Tip:  Want to make a layer but don't have two punches in incremental sizes?  Punch the image from the coordinating color twice and layer them slightly off behind your stamped image!

I can't wait to see what other's have done with this challenge this week!!

Love it Marilyn! I have seen so many darling Halloween cards this year, I don't do much with the Holiday but I am thinking I am missing out, lol. Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week! Oh and thanks for the tip about layering too!

I really love what you did with this stamp, making the coffin a different color. Very cool!
