Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning Everyone! It's been gorgeous weather here in WV - true fall weather.

I have a really neat project to share with you. I know you all have seen these stair step cards before and I've been wanting to make one, so I finally got brave and did it. This features the Haunted House and Spooky Pumpkins from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.


I should've staged this better to get a better photo, but I ran out of ideas late last night when I finally had time to get this put together. But I guess it's showing pretty well.

I created the sentiment using the standard Chiller font and I've had this candy corn ribbon for forever and finally got to use it! The Spooky Pumpkins I colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. The Haunted House I colored with Copics first and then went back over it with a black Prismacolor Pencil and OMS to give the ominous shadows. I made the ghost float with a bit of fine wire taken from some wire-edged ribbon. This is going to look so cute on a teacher's desk for a little festive decoration.

Hollyanne got to be honorary Junior Design Team Member - or better known as the Mommy & Me blog post. My daughter has discovered white craft ink and had a blast! She used Lindsay's Crow Tree image to create this fairly CAS card.

Please be sure to visit Lindsay and the team (linked in my sidebar) to see what wonderful eye candy they have to share with you. Thanks for stopping by.
