Trick-Or-Treats! { Lovin' my M's $1 Stamps! }


Last week when I was in Omaha, I really scored on a few terrific wood mounted $1 Halloween stamps at Michaels. This one is by Studio G. I've stamped the image in basic black and colored it with my Stampin' Up markers to match the patterned paper.

Believe it or not, I did not buy this paper at the same time I bought the stamp and they are not a "set". I found it a few days later at a small town scrapbooking shop I had never been to before. Do you believe in papercrafting destiny?! LoL :) This cute and colorful dotted paper is by Doodlebug Design, Inc. and appropriately called "Tricks-Or-Treats". I've layered in black and zig-zagged with my new little sewing machine. (see previous post) The base cardstock is Stampin Up pumpkin pie with layers of summer sun and lovely lilac. The cute little bats in the upper right corner are stamped with the Stampin Up Halloween Backgrounds set.

This was really a FUN card to make and I hope you like it! Smiles, Pam :)
