Isn't he just so fun?? His jacket uses the DP, as you can see, and I think it really adds to the appeal of this card. And though I did the paper piercing in the corner, it just didnt' have enough emphasis, so I went in with a Stampin' Write marker (FINE tip end) and touched each hole so that it was more black. It totally made the difference.
Colors: Tangerine Tango, Certainly Celery
Paper: SU! DP series "Sarah"
Other: Stipple brush, dimensionals
I hope you like it!

Then I created this:
I had also gotten these new Halloween stamps from the $1 section at my local Target! I was shocked to find them, but happy as can be!! Then I drew in the spider web by hand since I don't have a web stamp. The total dimension of this card is 4.5"x4.5". Square was perfect for this card, and it will still fit in the regular invitation sized envies!
I hope you like it~ NOW, if you're not on my group and want to play in this challenge, just make something, post it on your blog and then come to this post and leave a comment with the URL of your creation so I can see what you did. This will be fun!! Now, get out there and stamp!!
Have a great day~
Sets: Linograph BG (SU! retired), Halloween set ($1 section at Target)
Colors: Black, Orchid Opulence, Only Orange
Other: Black SU! marker, 2way glue pen, dazzling diamonds glitter, dimensionals, scalloped edge punch, scalloped circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch.

Congrats, Meg, please get me your email address so I can contact you for your address to send this stuff to!
Thanks to everyone else for entering!!

I used this glue pad to stamp the flower and apply dazzling diamonds glitter to make the cupcake really pop. I had purchased this Martha Stewart glue pad a couple of weeks ago, and I was initially excited about the fact that it came with a glue refill, and then I noticed that the glue pad was dry to begin with, and the glue is super wet.... it was odd. I have the Palette glue pad and like it much better, but I don't know where to get refills. Hmm. So anyone that knows, please post a comment and let me know, kay? lol Okay, okay, so here's the card:
Sets: Sock Monkey, Amazing
Colors: Pink Passion, Black
Other: Happy Birthday CB folder, glue pad, dazzling diamonds, black grosgrain, pink gingham ribbon (non SU!), Spectrum pad in Parfait, dimensionals, sponge brayer

So yesterday I had a baptism party to go to, and my husband announced to me that he needed me to make a card and I had about 10 minutes to do it! Men!! lol Anyway, so I had limited time and limited options because I had to make the card in Spanish and I only have one set with Spanish sentiments, and it's Saludos (SU! retired forever ago). SO, here's the quickie card. It's super simple, but it's the best I could come up with on such short notice: The baptism was for a boy who's about 2 years old, so it was an interesting challenge. I hope you like it!!
Sets: Inspirational Images (SU! Retired), Saludos (inside)
Colors: Bashful Blue, Barely Banana
Other: Swiss Dots embossing folder (CB), white ric rac (unknown brand), dimensionals
