Today I was feeling Halloween-y, and I really wanted to make a fun card to send to a friend. I also thought it would be nifty to enter the Inky Paws Challenge on the Newton’s Nook blog- the theme is Halloween.
Now, full disclosure, I don’t have a lot of Halloween stamps. I realize that’s kinda weird, given how much I love Halloween, but what can I say? It’s just how it goes sometimes. I wasn’t going to let that stop me, and I decided to see if I could stretch the stamps I do have and get creative.
This is my finished card. I masked the turtle, and used the digital freebie to send him trick or treating. The sentiment is also from the digital freebie. For his colorful Halloween hat, I used one of the birthday hats included in the set, and just modified it a bit with a black pen.
I am really pleased with how the card turned out, and I had a lot of fun making it.
Another view, in slightly better light. Hope you feel inspired to take a look at your own stash and find some fun ways to stretch your stamps and flex those creative muscles. I don’t know about you, but it’s certainly my favorite kind of exercise!
