SIP Challenge #62 - Sketch with Cookie Cutter Halloween

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Of course since it's Tuesday it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  I love this week's sketch, what do you think of it? 

As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to either have a sun or moon as the big circle.  Since Halloween is coming up and I have lots of granddaughters to make cards for, why not make a huge moon and break in this awesome new Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set and the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch!

I have to tell you that there is an awesome die set that would have made a much spookier tree and an awesome spooky fence.. note to self, I NEED that set!  lol  But for now, I used the tree from the limited die set that is available this month only called Thoughtful Branches Bundle.  I absolutely adore this set and see so many awesome uses for it.  I really hope it makes it into the next Annual Catalog!  So on to my card, I used an Elegant Eggplant cardbase that measured 11" x 4 1/4" and was scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  I added a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Basic Black.  Next on a 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" piece of Elegant Eggplant, I stamped the Watercolor Wash stamp tone-on-tone with Elegant Eggplant Ink.  I then die cut a circle into that towards the middle of the bottom of the card.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the same Watercolor Wash stamp but this time I stamped it with Smoky Slate Ink.  I then glued that to the back of the top layer of purple by using fast fuse just around the edges.  The adorable little bats are from the same Cookie Cutter Halloween set and were stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink onto the moon.   I cut my tree in Basic Black and used my fine tip glue to attach it to the front of the card.  I then attached that layer onto my card front.  Next on more scrap Whisper White I stamped the two Cookie Cutter Halloween images with Black Archival Ink.  I colored in the purple of the Dracula with  purple markers... in retrospect, maybe I should have used red for a pop of another color.  After punching out my images with the new Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I used Dimensionals to pop them up.  The sentiment was from a retired Stamp Set from last year's Holiday Catalog.  So, another note to self, I need current Halloween sentiments. lol  I do love how it turned out.  Super cute I think.  I'm sure one of our 6 granddaughters will love it.  Now 5 more cards to make, or maybe just 4 since one of our granddaughters is just 2 months old.. lol  

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
