I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Is Pink the New Orange?

Good evening all,

I have a card tonight for you that I really had fun putting together. I've used lots of tools on this one. The sketch is Jen's Deconstructed Sketch 18. The colors of pink, gray and black, come from the current CR84FN38 color challenge and the pastel colors, die cuts and embossing will work for Linda's Catered Crop FTR20 challenge.

I reached for another new MFT Pure Innocence set called "Little Witch" that I received in the mail last Saturday. She's so cute! The patterned papers are some long retired Halloween and Valentine's Stampin' Up DSPs and, as you can see, her witches costume is paper pieced with them. I used craft black ink and Black Diamond embossing powder to make shiny, sparkly lines on all of the stamped images. For my layout, I rotated the sketch and also angled the two top panels for more interest.

The pink pumpkins are made from the SU small oval punch. Her pink shoes and the buckle on her hat are colored with a Spica glitter pen.

Here's the inside:
