Can you believe we are getting close to Halloween already? Crazy how fast time flies. Me….I am looking forward to next Friday when school starts again. Don’t tell my kids I said that. LOL. I am more creative when I have the house to myself. Today the Kraftin’ Kimmie gang is introducing the Halloween Lulu stamp set. You can find links to the blogs of the participants by clicking on the inlinkz link on the bottom.

For my sneak peek sample I stamped Frankenstein Lulu inTuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with the second largest Decorative Label Eight Nestabilities die die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: YG01, YG03, YG17   Hair, Skirt, Sneakers: C3, C5, C7, C9, C10   Jacket, Socks: V04, V06, V09   Ground: W3, W4, W5, W7, W9). It was then masked. The die was placed back over it and cloud masks were added that had been cut with Spellbinders Whimsy die dies. The background was then sponged first with Black Soot, then with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

Two pieces of Pink Paislee’s Phantom paper (it is still one of my favorite paper packs) were cut and embossed with the second largest Card Creator Matte A die. The edges were sanded before the layer was stitched to black cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the largest Card Creator Matte B die.

May Arts ribbon was colored with Copic V09 Marker and tied around the patterned paper layers before everything was adhered to the card base, cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Rectangle die out of Basic Gray cardstock. The bow was topped with a rhinestones brad.

The sentiment is also from the new Halloween Lulu set. It was stamped on white cardstock, cut and embossed with an insert die from the Fancy Framed Tags Two dies. The sentiment layer was sponged just like the image layer background and adhered to the lower left of the image. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl under the bow and  Fancy That! Border Bling on the top left corner finish off the card.
