It's not too early to think about Halloween, is it? I mean . . . it's just around the corner, right? I used Stampin' Up!'s "Home Is Where the Haunt Is" stamp set to create this card, and Stampin' Pastels were used to color the background. I can't take full credit for the layout, though. While perusing a magazine at Barnes & Noble last week, I came across a similar card design and thought, "I can do that--and better!"

It's hard to believe that I struggled to justify purchasing this stamp set about two years ago because I have used it a lot! It has, in my humble opinion, a great selection of images, but what I like most is how easily the images lend themselves to creating scenes and I LOVE scenery stamping! Granted, I have a lot to learn about creating scenes, but I'm definitely intrigued!

Now, if you don't particularly care for Halloween, you can at least take a design concept from this card . . . the torn window! Have you ever started stamping on a card and made a boo-boo? (Hee! Hee!) Well, just tear out the part of the card that you don't like and put a perfectly stamped image behind it. No one will have to know what prompted you to create a torn window! ;-)
