Hey Ghoulfriend

Back to Halloween today. Last year I got this cute little ghosty girl image from Whipper Snapper, designed by my friend Anna Wight. The ghost image has THE cutest little face and darling bow. The name of the stamp is called Sheila Ghost and is available HERE at Whipper Snapper.


I didn't have time last year to create with this stamp, so it was a must for this Halloween season. I knew exactly how I wanted to color Sheila. I stamped Sheila onto Papertrey's Kraft cardstock with black ink and then reached for my white pigment ink pad. I used inexpensive eye makeup sponges to apply white ink to the ghost image. It was very easy to blend and the white ink shows up very nicely on the Kraft cardstock. I then cut out the image with a rectangle Spellbinder's die and ink the edges of my rectangle while the metal die was still in place. I colored Sheila's bow a burnt orange color and added some glitter. I also used some pinkish colored chalk to color her cheeks. Isn't she just adorable?The background papers are from Making Memories and My Mind's Eye, my two favorite collections this Halloween. For the sentiment on my cards, I used the Small Alphabet from JustRite Stampers to spell out *hey ghoulfriend*. Ha Ha! I used a polka dot border stamp and small wood stamper from JustRite to frame my sentiment. I then added some dressed buttons and black and white gingham ribbon and my cards were complete.
Here's a closeup of cute little Sheila Ghost, all dressed up in her finest sheet and sparkly bow.
Now that I've made all these Halloween cards, I better get them mailed out to some spooktacular friends and family!! Have a great day everyone!!
