Mojo 102

What a fun sketch this was this week! I'm sure to use it again, perhaps for some Xmas cards.
I added two views so you could see the shiny embossing on one and then get a head on look on the other.
Here are the details:
The pumpkin image came from a clear acrylic set by Heidi Grace. The other two images are from a Halloween set from Inkadinkado. I embossed all the images and then colored the pumpkin with SU markers. I did a lot of sponging on each white piece to give them a more spooky look. I cut out the "Trick or Treat" with a nestie and mounted to the back of a piece SU pumpkin pie cardstock. I punched the corners of the pumpkin pie piece with my new MS web corner punch. Then I did a little paper piercing around the top and bottom of the circle on the orange paper. I really like how this turned out. It's a bit of a stretch for the sketch I know.
I also used the web punch on the upper righhand corner of my black backing piece. That black paper is by Bo Bunny and I ran it through my CB using the trees embossing folder for some texture. The ribbon is from Michael's and the brads were in a pack called "Fright Night" by Queen and Co. I found them on clearance on some website a while ago. I popped the orange piece, the "Trick or Treat", the Boo and the pumpkin all up on dimensionals because I just don't do flat cards:))
Has anyone seen the new SU mini? Well, there is a Halloween set in there I simply have to own
called Twick or Tweet. It has a skeleton with one leg held up in the air that has a small dog attached to it. There is a sentiment to go with it that reads "It's Halloween...enjoy every bite. I'm ordering it this weekend and hope it will be here so I have time to whip up a card before Halloween with it. The mini has a picture of a darling treat box done up with that stamp. Very cute!


  1. Such a fun and funky card - shame we don't celebrate halloween - you are coming up with some fun ideas!!!

  2. You have me thinking I need to make some Halloween cards! I usually don't, but yours are so darn cute they are inspiring me. Love all the detail in this one.

  3. This is so spooky and sweet at the same time! LOVE the little pumpkin's face and the web corner punch is really cool!

  4. I love this card! I took one look at the sketch and didn't know what I would do with the little side blocks and moved on to another sketch. You did a great job with it! I can't wait to get those Martha spider web punches too. Aren't they adorable?
