Trick or Tweet

Hello stampers! How are you today? I hope you are well. I am so excited to show my card with you today! I made some plaid card stock using my Buffalo Check Clear Mount Stamp and some markers. I am probably one of the last people to try this, but I am so glad that I did! It turned out so cute! Here is my card:

Isn't this too cute?!?!?! I used the sketch over at The Paper Players. Here is the sketch:

Isn't this a great sketch? Anyways, back to my card:

I just love the stamp set "Trick or Tweet". It has the cutest little critters in it. I have used this set a few times and have used some of
the different animals and they are all so adorable. 

I am totally diggin' the plaid "DSP". I made my own background paper using white card stock, the "Buffalo Check" stamp set and some SU! markers. Here is a close up of the plaid:

Here is how I did this: I put my large, Buffalo Check stamp on a plate of the Stamparatus. I put my card stock in the corner of the Stamparatus and inked up the check with Granny Apple Green ink. I then stamped the image onto my card stock. I had to re-ink the stamp and stamp it a second time as I wanted to get a really good image. I then took the brush tip of a Gorgeous Grape marker and a ruler and drew lines as you can see above. I then took a Pumpkin Pie marker and used the skinny end (writing tip) and drew thin lines in the middle of the white squares. I just LOVE how it turned out! So stinkin' cute!!!

I stamped my kitten with Memento Black in and colored it with Blends markers. I then cut my kitten out with the Stitched Labels Framelits and mounted it on a Gorgeous Grape Scallop Circle cut with the Layering Circles Framelits. I put a little Silver Metallic Thread behind my circle and adhered it to my card front. It is a little hard to see, but if you look closely, you can see that I used the Subtle Dynamic TIEF on the black card stock. I thought it added a little something to an otherwise plain piece.

I wanted to decorate the inside of my card. I used a sentiment from "Trick or Tweet", but didn't really have any small Halloween stamp sets. I then remembered that I have the September Paper Pumpkin! I used the little stamps from that! So cute! I love that you can use Paper Pumpkin stamp sets for other cards.

I hope I have inspired you to go create a little something pretty. I look forward to sharing with you next time!
