More Halloween Fun!

What is the best part of Halloween?! Why trick or treating that's what! When I was little I used to LOVE to dress up for Halloween and then, later on, when I had kids I loved to dress them up too! I took side jobs at making costumes and stuff too - so FUN! So when The Rubber Cafe came out with these new stamps for their Halloween line you KNOW I "had" to have them right?! I had fun with combining a few of their stamps in my project below;

This card technique is called a "Stair step Fold" and directions can be found here. The folds are way easy to create using a Scor-Pal too! I LOVE my Scor-Pal and it's never far from my desk since I use it in almost every creation!

I had fun coloring these images with my Koh-I-Nor colored pencils and my Prisma Pencils but instead of Gamsol I used the Prisma colorless blender pencil and am very happy with the way it helps smooth out the lines from coloring! These images are just so "coloring friendly" you can't resist but, that's not all the fun you can have with them! Since these are part of Melissa's newest line of clear stamps too that means you can stamp them on designer paper and cut them out to layer! If you click on the picture you can see where I did just that with the kid's costumes! The house stamp is a spoooooky one too isn't it?! It's called "Bat Motel". I'd almost be afraid to knock on the door! LOL! It's not a clear stamp but is a good ole red rubber stamp you can purchase with clingmount already on it! How's that for convenient! That stuff sticks to almost anything but, if you're looking for something to use with all of your clingmount stamps AND your clear stamps too,try the "Rock a Blocks" - they're awesome, and not to mention my favorite color purple to boot! Well I hope you have as much fun with your new stamps as I did with mine! I'll be making more projects with these cutie pies! Mmmm pie...gotta run for dinner now! Enjoy my card and don't forget to share your Rubber Cafe creations back here with a link!

Aloha Melissa! It was such a pleasure to meet you at the show in Tucson and the one in Phx. I came home loaded with lots of new goodies and a thousand ideas swirling in my head! Keep up your great creations, they are wonderful. You inspire me to create!
