My card features the Ghoulfriends stamp set which may have an entirely Halloween ring to it but it's much more versatile than that. I also threw in the soon-to-be released Seasonal Tree Dies, as well as the must-have-in-your-stash Stitched Dies to create movement for this ridiculously hilarious scene.


The monster and sentiment are both from Ghoulfriends. I stamped him in Olive Grove Memento Luxe ink and fussy cut him. The leaves were coloured with a blending tool and various distress inksThe ground was created using the Borders 1 Dies.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!!
