Count Cupcake

Hi there! I am SO EXCITED about Halloween!! I love the fact that there are more and more fun stamps, accessories, papers, and decorations in general every year for this fun Holiday! Yesterday I did my Inspiration Station (thanks Mish) - so here's another card using my fun stuff!!

I used the Dracula cupcake from Taylor Van Bruggen's new stamp set Trick or Sweet. I ADORE this set!! Does it GET any cuter?!?! A wonderful friend sent me this set for my birthday - YAHOOO!!!!!

The cardstock is all Stampin' Up! The black ink I used is Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in Black Soot. The ribbon is Stampin' Up! I used my Copic Markers to color this cute little vampire in.

It's Saturday - I hope that you are having a great day and enjoy your weekend!!!!!!!!!!

Inspiration from all over

My sweet friend Mish inspires me regularly. Well, today she issued a challenge and I accepted. Put together a Halloween Inspiration Station. Mish has been doing this for a while - and I just haven't gotten around to it. Well, today I decided to just DO IT - no excuses!!

So I went around and collected Halloween-related products. Oh yes - I have much more than you see here. But there was only so much room to put it all together - LOL (I bet you can relate).

My two new favorite Halloween products that I picked up this year are both punches from the Martha Stewart line. I got the Bat punch and the GOO PUNCH (I just love saying that - *snort*)! I picked them up at Michael's.

Thank you, Mish. You inspired me to pull out all my Halloween stuff, get stamping, and get blogging again!

I am teaching a Kids Halloween class tomorrow. This card is one of the 5 we'll be making. I was INSPIRED by my friend Otter for this card. At our retreat in August, Otter made an ADORABLE little basket using the GOO punch and this cauldron stamp (SU!). So I took inspiration from her and turned it in to a 4.25x4.25 card. Thanks Otter!

Thanks for looking!
I hope that you find inspiration in lots of places!! Keep stampin' and smiling!
