Trick or treat, smell my feet..

It's SO COLD here in Kansas. Brrr, feels more like Thanksgiving weather than Halloween. I've steadily been making more Halloween cards in between my Christmas projects. Today I'm using Karen Lockhart's fun Warm Socks stamp. I love this stamp, I think I could use it for every occasion. All it takes is a little *out of the box* thinking.

I stamped my image onto My Mind's Eye patterned paper and paper pieced the socks. I colored in the background image from the same stamp with an orange Copic Sketch marker outline and then glittered the inside pattern. I adhered the socks to the background image with pop dots. Here's a view of the glitterfied background. For the sentiment, I reached for my handy dandy JustRite Stamps. They're the perfect *go to* stamps if you need to really customize a sentiment. I used the Curlz Font Alphabet and my large rectangle block Harmony stamper. I used two different font size on the same rectangle block. I stamped my completed sentiment into Versamark embossing ink and embossed my letters with black embossing powder. I'm loving the black embossed look for Halloween this year. I finished of a letter *i* with a burnt orange sequin sticker and added some more My Mind's Eye Halloween patterned paper and May Arts striped vintage ribbon. Who wouldn't smile when they receive this fun card?
Be sure to check out the contest going on at JustRite Stampers. There's lots of goodies to be given away each day.
