studio stampers blog hop

Welcome to the studio stampers blog hop with my a muse "cousins".   We are all lucky to have Krystie as our upline lady.  If you are joining the blog hop, you should have arrived from Karen Crisp's blog (My Paper Paradise).

I'm just in love with this simple and easy card.  It makes me happy that I can use up scraps and have clean and simple pops of color.  I don't own any of the new a|s holiday goodies {gasp!} but I wanted a Halloween card so I just used my papers for the effect.  I typically stick to the traditional Halloween colors, but pushed myself to make another card with a different color scheme.

Which do you like better? 





The purple/green card is not photographing well, which only encourages my attachment to typical Halloween colors.  I think these are still fairly traditional Halloween colors, but maybe more "witchy" colors?

stamp: A Muse "happy halloween"
ink: VersaFine onyx black
paper: A Muse orange, buttercup, heather, blackberry, orange polka dot, onyx polka dot, & grass polka dot

Okay now you're off to check out the goodies at Lisa Wakabayashi's blog (Dragonflies and Cats).

I really, really like your cards. CAS, totally my style! I'm leaning towards the "witchy" colors only because it is a little less traditional.

Cute! What a great way to use up your scraps. I'm leaning towards the traditional colors but I'm a sucker for orange :-)

The top card makes me think of candy corn.. so hands down (and full of candy) it's my favorite. :)
