SheepSki Designs: Fall / Halloween

No spring nor summer's beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face....
~John Donne, "Elegy IX: The Autumnal"

Good morning!

Another challenge has begun for all you SheepSki Design fans! This month our challenge is to make a card that celebrates Halloween of Fall. Your choice!

For my card I am using the image Winter Warmer #183 and a sketch I Spy Sketches

This card actually gave me fits to make. It seemed like something constantly went awry in the making of.

It started with me masking the image to ink in a background … My mask not only slipped but somehow red ink that was on the piece of paper I used for the mask transferred onto the cardstock. It was unfixable so I fussy cut the image out and set aside to cut new background mats.

Returning to my workbench I could not find the image.

5 minutes of searching finally found it had slid under my glass mat.

Then in the process of stamping the sentiment, I slipped and smeared the ink … the banner was created to cover THAT mess.

So … the card is finally done with a few modifications to the sketch! And I’m happy with it.


  • Image printed on Stampin Up Whisper White card stock
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (base) and Stampin Up!
  • Design paper from Fun Stampers Journey

  • Textured background paper from my stash
