More Halloween....

Good morning! I have been in a bit of a creative funk lately...I just havn't felt like stamping. I play around on the computer looking for ideas and sit at my table, but I just don't get anything accomplished. When I saw this cute card of Wanda's, I just knew I had to play along with the challenge. I even used the same sketch she did.... I also loved the way Kathleen placed her bats on this card, so I had to give that a try too.... Thanks for the inspiration ladies!

I used my My Mind's Eye Mischievous paper that paper! I love how they added a subtle touch of unexpected! I took my cue from the paper and colored Fluffles orange and accented her hat with blue. I used a liberal dose of glitter...let's just face it...glitter makes me feel good! LOL I don't mind the mess and I didn't even care when I looked down and my lap was covered with it.... I also used a lot of diecuts on this card...Spellbinder's, Martha Stewart, MFT Die-namics...I like that they are fast and easy. I felt like I needed a bit more blue to pull everything together with the blue card base, so I added a few Swarovski flatbacks.

Here's a close up of the diecuts and yummy glitter.

Image: Stampendous "Fluffles Broomstick"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Baja Breeze and Tangerine Tango, My Mind's Eye DP, The Paper Studio Black Glitter CS
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Aquamarine"
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Bat Punch, MFT Die-namics Cloud Dies, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am entering this card in Raise the Bar's Challenge #78 which is "Furry Friends". I have had this Fluffles stamp sitting on the table for quite some time and knew right away it would be perfect!

Another great card my friend! I can't see that you have problems with your mojo! Love all the details, like the black glitter bats. That design paper is really cute and I also love the little bit of blue in it.

Angela, I'd say you have LOADS of mojo 'cause this is another adorable Halloween card (you have the cutest images)! I know what you mean, though...I feel like I'm brain dead sometimes and blank out with ideas. It does help to browse other blogs/galleries for inspiration!

So cute! I love the bit of blue in the dsp too, and how you tied the blue in with the trail and hat, looks great! This is a fantastic card, you have the knack for combining dies, they flow so well. I really love this adorable card!
