Voices whisper...

October is speeding by and Halloween is fast approaching! I love decorating for Fall and Halloween and it's been especially fun this year in our new house!

The Stampendous Design team is participating in the 31 Days of Halloween! The Design Team members are excited to be bringing a daily dose of Halloween inspiration. We had such a great time for the Smeared Ink blog hop last year with Terra that we wanted to come back for another year and then we didn’t sign up in time. We’ll still provide their hop list every day so you won’t miss out on the fabulous projects from them. 

And of course, there are PRIZES!!! We have tons of prizes for this hop and as usual, comment on our blog and our design team blogs that get linked up here throughout our 31 Days post! See Official Contest Rules and then watch for details in our Monday post when we get the hop into full swing.

This week our team has been given two themes to work with in our creations. One to use some of the fabulous Graphic45 papers they so generously supply for us, and two, a theme of "Wrapped Up in Costumes".  Our fun stamps and their great papers are wonderful together. 

My creation for today features the Who Am I stamp paired with the Shadows sentiment.

Step 3: Use a foam applicator to rouge the distress inks around the edges of both stamped pieces, edge with the black soot ink
Step 4: Cut a 4 3/4" x 6" piece of Charmed, I'm Sure and distress with walnut stain and black soot, adhere to the card front

This little guy is really growing on me and the Shadows saying is a must have.Love the tutorial-I have the G45 so once my shopping is done, I can do this one.

So cute! I love that you used G45 paper for the background layer! It isn't often I don't use at least some of their paper on a project! TFS!

Cute and creepy, all rolled up in one fantastic card! Love this!

Love that little guy - he looks kind of
unsure of himself. Hopefully he'll gain
confidence soon - maybe he hasn't been a
ghoul long.
thanks for sharing.
