Today's the first day of Kraftin' Kimmie's new release week and I'm pleased as punch to be able to play along with her super-talented Design Team to present it to you, especially since this release features Halloween and/or Fall-themed stamps.

 Here's my card featuring two of the images from the Beyond the Grave set by Nicole Aspinall!


The Treat Bag image and two Jack O' Lanterns were stamped onto Judikins Eclipse Tape and fussy cut. The Treat Bag was stamped again onto Neenah cardstock, masked, then the Jack O'Lanterns were stamped so they slightly overlapped the bag and were masked too. The background was sponged over the masked images using Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress inks.  Post-It notes were used to mask the "wall" and Black Soot Distress ink was sponged over a Cityscape stencil by The Crafter's Workshop to mimic the checkerboard pattern in the patterned papers.

The Jack O'Lanterns and the Treat Bag were colored using Copic markers and the candies were all covered with clear Gelly Glaze pen to add dimension and shine to them. Mats were cut from Bo-Bunny Double Dot 6x6 pads to match the Copic colors I used. The Jack O'Lantern paper and checkerboard papers are from Graphic 45's Happy Haunting 8x8 pad.

I used a Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Border punch to add some interest (and a purple element) to the mat. Fish-tale Die-Namics were also used to to anchor the image and sentiment panels.
