Welcome stamping friends to another sketch challenge with the Paper Craft Crew!

Paper Craft Crew DT Badge


It is so great seeing you participate in our challenges – you sure do make some fabulous cards!  We have another great sketch for you to work from this week;


I decided to have some fun and go ‘seasonal’ – here’s what I came up with:


I don’t usually make Hallowe’en cards; and when I do, I usually forget to send them out!  I’ll have to remember to send this fun one out, this year.

I started by stamping the image from the fun Witches’ Night stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the Raven a second time onto a piece of scrap cardstock, then hand cut it & layered it on top of the first stamped image.  I used my retired Apothecary Accents dies to die cut the label, as it turns out that I don’t own the coordinating Lots of Labels Framelits!  (how on earth did that happen??!!)  I then sponged the edges using a Sponge Dauber and Smoky Slate ink.

The layers on my Pumpkin Pie cardstock base are as follows: Basic Black cardstock; retired Witches Brew DSP; Basic Black cardstock; Whisper White cardstock.

The Whisper White cardstock is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink using the splotches image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set; the edges inked using a Sponge Dauber and Smoky Slate ink, then a thin strip of the same retired Witches Brew DSP layered across horizontally.

I then attached a portion of one of the Spider Web Doilies to the side of the stamped label, then attached it to the layered panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the final touch, I added some strands of Gold Cording, with a White Perfect Accent – coloured using an orange Sharpie – in the middle.

Thanks for having a look at my card; if you have time, I’d love it if you would leave a comment, and let me know what you think!

Now, head over to the Paper Craft Crew page, and see what the rest of the design team has ‘brewed up’ for you! 😉  Then play along with us – you just may be our next Featured Artisan!

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
