Two Old Bats - Anything Halloween

 Please Share Our BadgeDid you know there is a cool blog called, Two Old Bats that does Halloween challenges all year long?  How fun is that!
For October it's Anything Halloween.  They provide an, Inspiration  Mood Board to inspire you.  You can choose to use it for inspiration or go out on your own with your card creations.

I finally had time to get in on one of their fun challenges.  Here is the Mood Board:  I decided to use the Buffalo Plaid for the inspiration for my card.

Here is what I created:

For this card I used another of the pumpkin images from the Tim Holtz set that I showcased on my last card.  
Card Details:
Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black & Whisper White*(retired).
Patterned Paper (Paper Studio - Purchased at Hobby Lobby).
I embossed part of the white card stock with a Spiderweb embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Provo Craft)*retired.  Then I distressed the edges using my finger nail and inked around them with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I added the buffalo plaid paper to the bottom half of the white embossed piece.

The Pumpkin image was colored with Copic Markers.  I also distressed the edges of the black card stock that I mounted the pumpkin image on.
The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink on white card stock and I used circle punches.  I also added a black punched spider with foam mounting tape & some sequins (Picket Fence) to complete the card. 
I hope you'll check out the design teams cards & the other participants.  Have a wonderful day.


  1. Yay, Ida, I'm glad you played along with this super fun card! That's amazing embossing of the spiderweb. I could have sworn it was a die cut -- it gave you such a good impression. Love the buffalo plaid and the kinda creepy pumpkin stamp. It's good to see your card in our gallery at Two Old Bats!
