Freshly Made Sketches #506

 Hello & Welcome!
Today I'm sharing a card that I created for Freshly Made Sketches#506 
Here is the sketch:
Below is the card that I made using the sketch as my inspiration.
For this card I started with some patterned paper from DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) from their Halloween Town mat stack.
I also used the coordinating Halloween Town stamp set.
I stamped the Haunted House with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and use the die to cut it out. - Then I colored it with a mixture of SU markers and Copics.  I added some glitter to the windows to give it a little sparkle.
My card base is Gorgeous Grape, I added the patterned haunted house paper and some strips of, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie & Summer Sun*(retired).  The sentiment is from a small Studio G stamp set that I've had in my stash forever.  
I cut a circle of the Summer Sun with Nestabilitie Dies and stamped some bats and fussy cut them and mounted them to my moon with foam tape along with the haunted mansion.
Now this card varies slightly from the sketch in that I accidentally had a pair of scissors under my card stock when I went to stamp the sentiment down and smudged it up so I had to cover it with a small strip of white card stock stamped with the sentiment correctly.
The bats also covered up a boo, boo (does this ever happen to you?) when the sentiment stamp fell off the block and smudged ink onto my moon.  
Even with all the mishaps I like how the card turned out and hope you do as well.



  1. Oh my word. This is wonderful. I was wondering how you got a house that was just like the one in the background paper. Great job on this one

  2. i agree with Ann, just wonderful. i like the word haunted also and also wondered about the house and the background.

  3. What a fabulous scene with the haunted mansion on the moon with the background of houses! And I think your accidents were happy accidents because it turned out beautifully! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. I had no idea DCWV made stamps. Love the way the stamp and paper coordinate! How Fun! Really love your card and how you used the sketch. Way cute, Ida!

  5. I agree with Ann....this does 'it' for me.

  6. Great use of the sketch, Ida, very easy to spot it on your holiday card
