PCCCS162 – Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge

Welcome stamping friends to another sketch challenge with the Paper Craft Crew!

Paper Craft Crew DT Badge


It is so great seeing you participate in our challenges – you sure do make some fabulous cards!  We have another great sketch for you to work from this week;


I decided to have some fun and go ‘seasonal’ – here’s what I came up with:


I don’t usually make Hallowe’en cards; and when I do, I usually forget to send them out!  I’ll have to remember to send this fun one out, this year.

I started by stamping the image from the fun Witches’ Night stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the Raven a second time onto a piece of scrap cardstock, then hand cut it & layered it on top of the first stamped image.  I used my retired Apothecary Accents dies to die cut the label, as it turns out that I don’t own the coordinating Lots of Labels Framelits!  (how on earth did that happen??!!)  I then sponged the edges using a Sponge Dauber and Smoky Slate ink.

The layers on my Pumpkin Pie cardstock base are as follows: Basic Black cardstock; retired Witches Brew DSP; Basic Black cardstock; Whisper White cardstock.

The Whisper White cardstock is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink using the splotches image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set; the edges inked using a Sponge Dauber and Smoky Slate ink, then a thin strip of the same retired Witches Brew DSP layered across horizontally.

I then attached a portion of one of the Spider Web Doilies to the side of the stamped label, then attached it to the layered panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the final touch, I added some strands of Gold Cording, with a White Perfect Accent – coloured using an orange Sharpie – in the middle.

Thanks for having a look at my card; if you have time, I’d love it if you would leave a comment, and let me know what you think!

Now, head over to the Paper Craft Crew page, and see what the rest of the design team has ‘brewed up’ for you! 😉  Then play along with us – you just may be our next Featured Artisan!

Until next time – happy stamping!
