PRIZES: 3 random winners chosen to receive …$25 Gift Certificate Announced Monday evening, August 20

For my first card I used another amazing layering set called Rose Garden along with the Angled squares background stamp. To make the card I started by stamping the background onto Midnight card stock with Versamark and embossed with Clear Embossing powder. I stamped the flowers and die cut with the coordinating dies. For the sentiment, again, I used Midnight card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I assembled my panel and adhered to Midnight top folding note card.


For my second card I used Spooky Hollow set and dies. I stamped the house on  Premium White card stock using Midnight ink, then colored with Copic markers and die cut. Next I did some ink blending using Midnight, Grape Crush, Royal Treatment, Party Dress, Tiki Torch and Limoncello inks. Once my panel was done I stamped the background images using Midnight ink and stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed in white.
To finish off the card I adhered the panel onto Midnight top folding card base.

Absolutely love the use of angled squares stamp to create a spidery effect with the clear embossing powder. The pink and purple sky card is spooky looking with the flying witch across the moon.

Love how your black backgrounds make the spooky and floral images pop.
These are two very different cards ! I love them both for different reasons. I love your bright flowers on that black base, because of the intensity of the color and black gives so much depth. And about your Halloween card, I love your choice of colour, especially the purple and how you colored the whole scene.
