The Lights Are On ...

... but no one is home! Ha! :)

I've had this idea floating around in my head for almost three weeks. There was a contest going on at Raisin Boat to use three sets of stamps to make one card and I was pretty sure I had it nailed but ... I've already posted about how I've been super busy!

I was putting stuff away from making the Graphic 45 Halloween box and had this paper burning a hole in my brain ... so I whipped this up as fast as I could ... didn't come out like I saw it in my "Ema-gination" but it came close enough ... and if that doesn't teach me to stop being quick about making a card I don't know what will! :-\ I was in such a hurry ... forgot the awesome twine I love! I did use Graphic 45 Happy Haunting paper ... I love this paper ... Raisin Boat ... duh! ... stamp sets, Dig Halloween, Do Not Enter and Fright Night. I stamped the grass from Dig Halloween and tree, spider web and spider from Fright Night on the Jolly Jack-O-Lantern double-sided paper. I wanted the haunted house image from Do Not Enter to be important to the card and pop out so I stamped it onto card stock with Top Boss tinted ink and heat-embossed it with Ranger super fine black embossing powder. I filled in the windows with Zig 2 way glue stick and sprinkled with Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter Fall Opaque Pee Wee Kit. I filled in the shutters and what I took to be fence posts and the front door railing with silver glitter pen. I then cut the image out along the lines of the house and cut out what I took as part of the wrap around porch and mounted it onto foam tape. I stamped the same image onto navy card stock with Tsukineko Memento Ink pad in Tuxedo Black and placed the cutout right on top to give it some depth and shadow. AFTER I was all done ... I remembered I also had black foam tape but since I didn't while I was making the card I went over the outside of the foam tape with Tsukineko Memento Marker in Tuxedo Black as well.

As you can see ... it really needed some of the wicked awesome tri-color Halloween twine I told you about before. It's screaming for twine! ;) Here is a close up of the pop up haunted house image.

I'm gonna try this again with the black foam tape and tri-color twine ... I have about 20 Halloween cards and I am needing 30. I don't think I will come back and show you that one unless it looks just way more wicked awesome. :) lol
