Happy Halloween! A quick post before I try to get the kids’ costumes finalized. They are both going as pirates. Our daughter said she wanted to be a pirate captain and her little brother went along with it. Well, he didn’t really have much to say about it.
Recently I was looking for something storage related and remembered Storage Units, Ink & More. When I went to the site, I discovered they were liquidating their stamps. They had some really adorable sets that were on my wish list for a long time and at $5 for a full set of stamps, who could pass that up?
One of the sets I ordered was Kooky Kostumes, featuring adorable kids in great costumes. I wanted to do a quick Halloween card last night and inked up this cutie candy corn girl. If any of you have little ones who watch Nick Jr (formerly Noggin), you probably know the “I don’t like candy corn” song that Moose sings. My daughter will come up to me and say “I like candy corn. Do you?” It is so cute.
Anyway, after coloring her in with Copics, I cut her out using my Nestabilities Labels 8 and added some Dazzling Diamonds to her tip. I cut an additional mat of black from the next size up in the labels. I stamped, colored and cut out the pumpkin pail image from this set as well. I knew I wasn’t going to get the inner part between the handle & pumpkin cut without loosing the handle, so I cut it off and drew in the handle. The paper is from Target $ Spot and the brads are from Recollections. I stamped the sentiment and sponged Only Orange over the top. This was actually a very quick card, which is what I needed.
