Ghoulish Greetings

I am SO loving getting ready for Halloween this year! I made this card using two of the new Stamp A Sweet Impression sets by Taylored Expressions.


The spooooky forest (don't you just love that little grave stone! lol) is made using images from Frightful Night. I stamped the trees in Weathered Wood Distress Ink. It gives them kind of a foggy look. The bats are stamped in Black Soot Distress Ink, some using 2nd generation ink. I stamped the moon in black also and then colored it with Copic markers. It just seems to glow, doesn't it!











And the Vampire.... OMGOSH I think he is my favorite! (along with the ghost and the mummy and the cat... lol) He is from the Trick or Sweet set.

Mr. Vampire cupcake is stamped on white cardstock in black, colored with Copic markers and then colored with a black shimmer pen. I cut out the image and attached it using foam tape. Doesn't it look like he's guarding the forest?

I hope you're having a ghoulishly fun day!
