Sunday Googly Ghouls

Another Sunday Stamps Challenge. And I guess my post title is a bit odd - but because of the stamp set I used if fits ;)

This challenge was hosted by the fabulous Joan Jeffery of J-J Creations. She has provided us with a gorgeous sketch that can be interpreted in so many different ways. I decided to put my Googly Ghouls stamp set to good use :) I love this set, it's so cute! Can't wait to use it in a Hallowe'en Scrapbooking class.

Although I tend to change up sketches and challenges quite a bit, I loved this sketch so much I pretty much left it as is. I added a scallop circle under my ghouls on the left, but I wanted the mummy to really stand out from the Tangerine Tango, so I left him as is.

Tips & Tricks:

*All the materials in my card are a sneak peek from the Holiday Mini. I absolutely love the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.
*I love the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP. If not only for the name ;) There's lots of fun patterns and the colors (Basic Grey, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango and More Mustard) are sooo Hallowe'en!
*You know what I love about the Googly Eyes? They have a little glue dot on the back. So not only are they darned cute, but there's no fuss in getting them onto your card!
*I am loving the Striped Satin Ribbon. It's so perfect with the rest of the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Suite.

If you're loving this Hallowe'en Suite of Products, look for an Accessory Test Drive in September. Try out the products in the suite, a little at a time. More info is available on the blog page above. I'll also be offering a Hallowe'en Scrapbooking Class on September 16th.

'Til next time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!

FABULOUS! I was working with these little ghouls last night. I love how you left the mummy un-scalloped and the woodgrain embossing folder works perfectly on this! Love it.
