CAS80: Proud Guest Designer!!

Hey there, stamp land!

This week, it's my honor to be the guest designer for the Clean and Simple challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. This week, it's a sketch challenge, based on this lovely card from DT member Emily.

I actually made a few cards based on hers, so let's get on with it, shall we?

First, my favorite:

Spooky! I broke out one of my new SU sets -- Wicked Cool. The little witchy legs and the sentiment are two separate stamps. I used an oldie but a goodie punch -- who can resist something called Drippy Goo? I wanted it to look like the goo was dripping right on my focal point. That dp is from last year's Basic Grey Halloween pad. The ribbon is PTI's Simply Chartreuse. Oh, and the stockings? Here:

Shiny! I colored them in first with a marker, then went over it with a glitter pen. Delish.

And now for the other two --

I think this layout is pretty cute -- the dp border is punched with a new EK punch, and I love the jumbo scallop-big dot combo. That little jack-o-lantern face is a cheapo dollar stamp, though, and I just couldn't get it to stamp very well. Oh well -- that's the kind of thing non-stampers never notice :)

And finally:

This one is probably truest to Emily's original card. The web at the top is from Wicked Cool, and the sentiment at the bottom is from PTI's Halloween Tags 2009 set. The border is created with more punched BG paper and a strip of Making Memories word stickers and bling.

My favorite bit is the button, though -- I gave it 8 twine legs. Dorky? yep. But I like it!

Anywho, be sure to check out the CAS challenge on SCS today.

Happy stamping, and thanks for stopping by.

AWESOME job on all three cards for your guest spot, Angela!

I LOVE the drippy goo border punch as well as the sparkle witches legs on the first one.

Your second card makes me wish I had a large scallop border punch or die. ;)

I'm totally loving the third card with the webs at the top, the dangly legs from the button and those awesome word stickers - love your placement of them!

These are all so spooky CAS! I love 'em, Angela! Love the multiple spiderwebs on the last one and you are such a dork with your eight twine legs!!! Awesome use of the word stickers.

The second one is tons of fun--I like the pumpkin in the punched holes!

Your favorite is my favorite, too!! The witch's feet look awesome all sparkly and the drippy goo paired with the striped paper is pure genius!! And that fun green ribbon!!

Congrats on your guest spot, you certainly knocked it out of the park!!
