Boo! (I got ya, right?) {Winner Announced}

Hee-hee! Yes, I know I didn't actually get you, but...I can pretend, right? K. Thanks. BUT...today is a super fun day with a brand new sketch from Skipping Stones Design!!!

Actually, today is the last day with our fabulous September guest designer, Amy Sheffer! Can you believe it will be October this weekend? Yikes! When did that happen?! It will also be World Card Making Day, and there is fun stuff planned ALL OVER THE PLACE for that, so keep your eyes peeled! I will certainly have some fun stuff here on my blog for you!

As for today, however, the Skipping Stones team has a WONDERFUL bunch of projects to share with you!

Boo!


I pulled out the Happy Halloweenie set for this fun card! I stamped the BOO! image onto a chalkboard accent (American Crafts) in Colonial White pigment ink. The papers are all from the Echo Park Apothecary Emporium collection, the twine from The Twinery, and that adorable ghostie is from Making Memories.

I decided to turn the sketch into a square card and I think it worked out pretty well, if I do say so myself! HA! I have a question for card makers out there - when you make square cards, what size do you make them? I have been doing about 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and I think I like that size, but I wonder if I should be going down to 5x5 or up to 6x6. Hmmm...the things we ponder when playing with paper. Just say'n.


Anyway, here is the sketch that Amy created. AND...here is your HOMEWORK!!! Create a card based on this sketch and then head on over to Skipping Stones Design and link up your take on the sketch! You can use any supplies you like (you don't have to use SSD stamps, but we love it when you do!) AND you have a chance to win some FREE STAMPS!!!

Speaking of free stamps...I have the winner from last week's Happy Halloweenie set giveaway! The winner is AMY from Abstracts Mixed with Extracts!!! Amy, please email me with your address so I can get this fun set out to you!

And now, it is TOTALLY time for you to check out what the other Stamp Tramps have created!!!
