I’m a big chicken. I don’t like horror movies and I don’t like scary Halloween themes.
But this set is so adorable I couldn’t not get it. Isn’t the little fang-tastic vampire sweet? Never thought I would say that about a vampire.
I picked the striped patterned paper from the Wicked Fun Specialty paper package and designed my card in the same colours. The card is Old Olive, the Spider Web embossed background is Basic Black and the cardstock under the striped paper is Rich Razzleberry.
I stamped the little vampire from the Fang-tastic stamp set in Basic Black and coloured him with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Tangerine Tango inks and a blender pen. (The paper has Cajun Craze instead of Tangerine Tango but I think he looked better in the brighter colour.)
I punched him out with the new 2-1/2" Circle Punch from the Holiday Mini catalogue and also added a punched greeting. I added a Glimmer Brad in Rich Razzlebery to the greeting. These brads are awesome! Just one or two on a card or project really make a difference.
I finished the card with a length of wide Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and a knot of the narrow Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon.
The other large image in this stamp set is a friendly witch. And her matching greeting is "witch way to the candy?" Love it! Watch for another sample later this week using this set again with the Mini Lunch Sacks.
Halloween is only 33 days away. Have you ordered your supplies yet?
