Boo!

Hi Friends!
I just wanted to first thank you all for your sweet and encouraging comments this week.  I can't express how much I appreciate all my crafty friends.  Now, to continue my Halloween card week I have a super quick & easy card I created that features some fun patterned paper & another try at using some colored mist.


I stamped out the letters from Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABCs on a piece of scrap cardstock then drew an outline around them to cut out a mask. 

{Just a little tip, I tried the mask first with typing paper, it did not give me a nice crisp edge.  The wetness of the mist soaked through the paper and it wasn't pretty.  So to save the rest of you from wasting a card base, use cardstock for the mask with mists rather than paper.}  

I used removable adhesive to stick down my mask, gave it a little spritz with Mister Huey's Custard, removed the mask then let it dry.  Then I just layered some fun pattern papers along the top and bottom and added some twine.  The papers are from Echo Park's Happy Halloween line.  I bought them last year on sale so I don't know how easy they are to find now, but if you do a Google search you may be able to still find some. I just love the colors.

Thanks for stopping by today, tomorrow I'll be back with another Halloween card!  I know you are all shocked. :)

p.s. Today is the last day to play along with my little giveaway! You can leave comments HERE, I will draw winners this weekend.
