Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Happy Labor Day.  Last holiday of the summer
before the kids return to school and cooler
weather and shorter days begin. Enjoy!

This weeks idea is a Halloween card.  Bought this wonderful Halloween stamp
at the show in Hamburg last weekend at BSS, and I could not wait to
color it, what fun.

Finished card

Close Up of Stamped image

Close up of Twine Bow and leaves adornment

Stamp - Impression Obsession (L19017)
Card Base is 5x7 cream card stock
Papers - Orange card stock, Burlap paper (DCWV)
Yellow glitter paper
Colored with Copic Markers, cut out clouds with
white glitter paper and popped them up.  Also popped
up the shelf the pumpkins are sitting on.
Stickles Used, yellow, green, and orange.
Corners were made by marking a piece of
orange cardstock three inches from the edge, across
and down and cutting with your cutter from point to point.  The same
for the ones under the yellow glitter paper only they
are marked at two inches from the edge, across
and down and cut.  I placed them on opposite corners
for a different look.  Dotted stars in the sky with
a water based sharpie poster paint pen.  Wink of Stella
gold to outline the larger stars.
Three strands of twine in orange, yellow and green were tied
around the burlap layer before adhering and tied in a bow on
the left edge.  Glued two small leaves from my stash
in the middle of the bow and at the right bottom corner.

These guys are so cute and make a great Halloween card.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later.........
