                                        Featuring stamps and dies by


You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

But… If you have some of their product in your stash

We would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

My stamp and dies sets of choice for this challenge are

Toil And Trouble Stamp Set And Die

Kaleidoscope Embossing Folder

To start this card, I stamped out the Toil And Trouble Stamp Set

I did not want to us traditional Halloween colors, so I did some color plucking

and came up with the colors you see on the card.

Once my images were colored in, I decided that the stamped images alone

were just going to be too plain for a white card base. This card needed something else.

I have been playing around with the Kaleidoscope Embossing Folder, using

 scraps of paper that I have and loving the results.

Using off cuts of Banana Yellow, Green Apple, Sunshine, and Peacock Teal Card Stock.

 I cut down each color into strips about 1 ¼ inch wide 

and glued them down to basic white card stock.

 The idea was to have to whole card front to be the Kaleidoscope Embossing Folder,

 But this was WAY too much color, so I decided on a feature circle .

One of my go-to dies is the stitched circles in the Circle Frames Dies by Newton’s Nook Designs.

Carefully I die cut out my strips of paper and then ran the die cut through the embossing folder.

Once this was attached to my card base, I added on the Toil And Trouble elements

that I popped up with foam tape.

I finished my card with a die cut sentiment, and stars from the stamp set.

Also, some shimmery gems from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. 

This completes my take on SPOOKY/HALLOWEEN
