Red Hat Halloween

The moment I saw this TAC stamp, I wanted it, but it was part of a large, relatively expensive Halloween set that I didn't want, and I wasn't going to pay that much for this one stamp. As luck would have it, I got it a few months later in a grab bag. As far as was concerned, this one stamp justified the purchase of the grab bag.

It's colored with marker watercoloring, then I perked it up a bit with my Stargazers, although the scan doesn't show the shimmer. This is a sketch this week at Card Patterns, but when I saw the sketch, I knew wanted to make the kind of card that twists and opens in the middle. I don't remember what this style of card is called, but this is how it looks opened up:

The base paper and the little tags are all from the Seasons paper stack from K&Co, the felt flower is from Target, the black brad from CTMH, and the flourishes were all punched with my new EK Success Paper Shapers.

I have no brand loyalty, do I?

This is hilarious, Juliet! First of all, that stamp is DARLING! I understand the conundrum of wanting one or two out of a larger set... Luck was with you, my friend! Excellent use of this sketch! I love the spectrum of materials you used and were inspired by! GREAT JOB!
