Scaredy Cat ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

Welcome to the "Stampers With An Attitude" blog hop.  This month we are getting ready for Halloween and featuring papers and stamps from the Scaredy Cat collection.         

If you have come here from 'Roxybonds', you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.  

The Trick or Treat Sweets stamp set includes some really adorable images of traditional Halloween costumes.  For this card, the Frankenstein was stamped using Black ink, colored green using a Touch Twin Marker, and added behind a cute frame from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  The 'crazy for candy' sentiment is included in the equally adorable Frightfully Fun stamp set, and a patterned paper from the Scaredy Cat kit is used for the background of the card.  On every CTMH patterned paper, there is a ½" strip which includes the paper packet name and colors used.  On the reverse side of the product info is always a fun coordinating strip, and one of these from the Scaredy Cat paper packet included the cute 'eek' strip.  Some black and green Glitter Paper adds a bit of sparkle to the card.

Even though the Scaredy Cat paper packet is themed for Halloween, only two of the six patterns available are actually "theme specific," the other four patterns are simply nice designs which can be used for many different projects.

A Beautiful Day For a Scooter

When I saw the Heart 2 Heart Challenge to share your favorite stamp set, that was the perfect opportunity for me to actually create something using this adorable scooter in the Make It Merry stamp set.  The sketch for this week at Freshly Made Sketches (FMS153) was perfect for the image.  After stamping with Black ink, a few ShinHan Touch Twin markers were used to add some color.  Finishing the card is a fun sentiment from the Happy Birds set, and some super sparkly teal Glitter Paper.

An Autumn Leaf

With cooler "sweatshirt" weather this week, soon our trees will begin showing their beautiful autumn colors.  In anticipation, this card uses Color My Heart (Color Dare #110of Barn Red, Sunset, and Honey and mashes them with The Friday Mashup (FM177) of using 'leaves' and a sketch. The beautiful leaf stamp is from Harvest Happiness, and it is paired with a sentiment from the new Rainy Day stamp set.  Using the Art Philosophy cartridge, a circle was cut using tan Glitter Paper and a larger scalloped circle was cut using Barn Red from Paper Fundamentals
