I created this card for the Free For All Challenge on Splitcoast last week. We were to use a stamp set with a pun sentiment. I knew right away that I wanted to use The Cat’s Pajamas stamps for that. TCP has the funniest sentiments.

I picket the stamp set Mwah! and stamped the Dracula in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on X-Press It Blending card. That cardstock is really growing on me. It blends well and the ink doesn’t feather. That’s pretty SWEET! I just bought a whole ream at Ellen Hutson’s store. I was excited to see that she got it in.

The image was cut with Label 1 Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (Cape and hair: N5, N7, N9 Collar: R24, R39 Skin: W1, W3, Shirt: N0, N1, N3 Grass BG93, BG96. The background was airbrushed with BG72. Before the layer was attached to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Lacey Square Nestabilities die. 


The card base is a 5 ¼” x 10 ½” piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock folded in half. A 2” x 4 ¾” strip of Mitten Weather Cosmo Cricket paper was adhered over a white cardstock strip cut with Inside Pinking die from The Cat’s Pajamas.  The edges of a 4 ¾” piece of Mitten Weather Cosmo paper were sanded and the paper strip was adhered over the lower half of the square. It was then stitched to a 3/16” bigger piece of black cardstock. ¼” wide May Arts Silk Ribbon was colored with R39 marker, then tied around the layers and topped with a Recollections Brad (Michaels). Red Kaisercraft Rhinestones on two of the image edges finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

P.S.: I am sorry I was not visiting and commenting on blogs. My internet is out and Time Warner won’t come out to check it out until Wednesday. Not happy with my Internet provider here. The internet goes out EVERY month, but usually at least they can come out earlier. Working at Chick-Fil-A for now.
