a spooky challenge

Wow…I see it’s been a week and a half since I posted.  Life is just busy, I guess.  I did find time, though, to participate in our new Stampavie challenge.  This time Jay Jay asked us to use spooky colors.

Here’s my sample made with one of the new Tina Wenke Halloween images.  By the way, this was a VERY LIMITED collection, so if you want to purchase them, do it now!  You can search the stores that carry Stampavie images here.  I purchased mine from All That Scraps and as of typing this, there’s only a few left.

I’ve seen these candy corn cards around the net and wanted to try one.  I don’t know who started them, but I’m pretty sure they were around last year too.  This year I remember seeing one or two made with the Nestabilities dies but mine didn’t arrive in time so I made my own template.  Here’s a file for you to download if you’d like to make one too:

Edit:  I’ve had some requests for the template and it seems as if the downloads aren’t working again.  Sorry!  If right-clicking on the link above and “save target as” doesn’t work, then here’s a jpeg you can save.  Click on the thumbnail pic to enlarge it.  The full template will show there.

Just align the left side of the template on the fold of your A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches).  Trace, cut it out, and embellish!
