Spooky Blog Hop Revisited

Since I was such a dunderhead earlier and wasn't ready to post my card for the OBP Spooky Blog Hop, I over-compensated and created two Halloween cards.

I embossed Bat Gate using both Rust and Verdigris Antiquities Embossing powder to make it look old and creepy. I cut out the gate and mounted it on gray textured cardstock that had been chalked to look like a stone wall. Flying Al on Earth was an OBP Earth Day limited edition stamp and is one of my faves. He was colored with Copic markers. Flair Designs Rub-ons were used to create the sentiment.

Felines can be notoriously witchy and Priscilla is no exception. She's a true witch Diva. Halloween is her favorite holiday and she has a whole collection of witch hats, brooms, and other witchy accessories. Don't be fooled by that broom though. It's only used for flying, never cleaning, as can be seen by those icky cobwebs!

I used Priscilla Witchy Cat and Webby Border. Priscilla was colored with Copics. The patterned paper (orange) is by K&Company. I used a Skull/Flourish Cuttlebug folder on Core'Dinations cardstock to create the layer under the stamped image panel. After sanding the cardstock to reveal the orange core color, I swiped a Distress ink pad over it to heighten the orange. Gem stickers are in the corners.

Thanks for visiting today again and thank you for forgiving my ineptitude!


  1. Love how you made the gate a GATE. Somehow, I never seem to get a card to look like it has a gate on it. I like your choice of embossing powders. Tres spooky!

  2. I love how you worked the gate!

  3. Two cards???? NICE!!! They are both wonderful. You can be late anytime!! LOL

  4. Both cards are fabulous!

    I love the brick wall behind the gate. It really sets the scene.

    That black magic paper is just perfect for Halloween embossing. Great job!

  5. These are SOOO cool! In a creepy way ;)

  6. Love the batgate! The witchy cat is so cute!
