Cards & Coffee With Deb and Celeste - Halloween 2018

Hello everyone.  I am having "cyber" coffee and sharing cards with Deb and Celeste again today. Our theme for today is Halloween - one of the holidays I really miss from the states.  It's not a typical holiday here and, although there might be some parties and the kids will dress up for school, there is no trick-or-treating and there is no candy corn!!  I know...sad.  

For today's hop I am enjoying a cuppa Cinnamon Blueberry Crumble (YUM) in a new cactus mug that Ruy got a few days ago and which gave me an idea for a card but that will be next week and, I digress.

For my card today, I decided to use a digi stamp I have from Bugaboo Stamps called Trick or Treat Feet and I printed 4 of the images at 90% onto white cardstock.  

I trimmed one of the images and colored it using a variety of BIC Ultra Fine Tip Markers (my favorite markers).  I also layered it on to a piece of orange textured cardstock - 2.5" x 5.5" - and distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I then made an A2 card base of white cardstock to which I adhered a piece of decorative Halloween paper (Martha Stewart) to which I distressed the edges with the Black Soot Distress Ink.    

Lastly, I adhered the image to the card front with Tacky Glue (Aleene's) and then I applied some Firefly, Orange Peel, Glam Pink, Lavender, and Frosted Lace Stickles (Ranger) to certain areas of the image to give it some glimmer.  

And here is the final card after everything dried.  

I hope you enjoyed this card.  I think I will also enter this card into the If You Give A Crafter A Cookie Challenge No. 105.  Please go and show both Deb and Celeste some love by checking out their blog posts too!!  Just click on their names to be taken right to their blogs. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and, until next time -
