Hello everyone!

I am here with Joy Clair with a huge new release!   So don't miss out on hopping along with us for the next two days, you will want to see what the design team has created. Today I am featuring the new set "October Fun".  This set has five adorable Halloween images dressed up in their costumes and lots of sentiments you could use!

Here is my card:

Here is how I created my card:
  1. My card is an A2 card (vertical) measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
  2. I cut a piece of cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, I die cut a circle on a piece of post it note and used it as a mask to create the moon.  I then took the circle I die cut out and covered the moon and distress the rest of the card with distress inks ( Chip Sapphire, Black Soot, Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserve, Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet).  I sprayed some Shimmer splattered some distress white picket paint onto the finished distress inked piece and adhered this to my card,
  3. I stamped and cut the images out with my Brother Scan and Cut, and then colored them with copics,
  4. I  stamped my sentiment and bats,
  5. Then I added the fence and used dimensional's on the characters to pop them up in front of the fence. 
I hope you enjoy looking at my card as much as I loved making it.  Here is a closer look at the card, can you see the Shimmer Spray I added?

Let's start the fun!  Just leave your comments and tell us which is your favorite stamp set.
