Friday Mashup #27

Happy Friday, it is time for a new and wonderful The Friday Mashup Challenge. Take a look at my terrific new badge, I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the month of Oct along with Michele K. from Michele Hearts Paper. What an honour to join the Friday Mashup team for a few weeks.

Without further ado, here is the challenge details.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :

  1. Make a "Halloween themed" Project.
  2. Or Make a Project using the colors: "Black, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade & Concord Crush".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Halloween project using the Colors listed above".
*With all of our Challenges that have a Stampin' Up! Color Combo, you may substitute any colors you have, with similar ones you have on hand

I have such fun with Halloween cards, why not send them out. It is another way if saying hi :), I don't care if you think you are too old to enjoy the ghouls and goblins, did it make you smile when you opened it? Well good :).

I think I did pretty good with all the Stampin' Up! supplies, all cardstock, DP and button die cuts are Stampin' Up!. I did not manage the exact colors but I think I was able to pull it off.  I added some texture to each layer and used the computer to print of the vertical sentiment. I love the new Sizzix Embosslits Sweet Buttons, I embossed them with clear embossing powder and added a wee little gem for sparkle.

Pop on over to The Friday Mashup blog and check out all the other fantastic cards made by the Design team and challenge participants a like. Have a wonderful Friday and be creative.
