I don’t know why, but when I look at this stamp set I envision fall. So I immediately went back to our family photos we had taken a few years ago. I tend to hoard our family photos. I display the larger prints, but the 4×6’s I have lying around usually do just that….lie around. I’m nervous to cut them, because it’s difficult to get them reprinted if there is an accident while cutting and {let’s be honest} they can be expensive!! I ventured outside my comfort zone, and used one of our professional photos for this project.

Damask Divas’ Scaredy Cat Blog Hop

CTMH: Scaredy Cat & Frightfully Fun- Inspired by Nichol Magouirk

This month I made a card using the Scaredy Cat Paper Packet that was inspired by this card from Nichol Spohr Magouirk.

CTMH: Scaredy Cat & Frightfully Fun

I started with a Kraft Cardstock base followed by two filmstrips cut in Black Cardstock using the Artbooking Cricut® Cartridge. I used the Scaredy Cat Paper Packet to fill in the filmstrips and the Frightfully Fun Stamp Set for all the images and text. The fun Halloween images were stamped in Archival Black Exclusive Ink™ and then colored using the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers. I then used 3D Foam Tape to pop the images off the card and added the Halloween slogans in CTMH Black Exclusive Ink™.

Now onto the bling…. The sparkles are from the CTMH Clear Sparkle Assortment. Now I just said clear sparkles but did you notice my sparkles are gray, orange, and purple?!? The ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers are made for more than just coloring paper! Just take the tip of the marker to your sparkles, sequins, ribbons and color! BOOM! You now have a custom colored embellishment! Those adorable black resin stars are from the Scaredy Cat Assortment.

I hope you’ve found inspiration on my blog! Now head on over to Amie Kiger’s blog to see what she has made with this fun paper packet!
