Lauren Brewer :: Monster Halloween

If you are looking for the Peachy Keen Halloween/Fall Blog Hop, you'll find it right HERE

Hi Peachy Fans!  It's Lauren here from Lauren's Creative and I have a fun card to share with you today.  I wanted to show you that with some fun Peachy stamps - you can create a Halloween card without necessarily buying any Halloween themed paper. 
When I first started paper crafting, I was NOT very picky about what papers I chose.  I would buy an entire pad of patterned paper - even if I didn't absolutely love everything.  Well...luckily I HAVE gotten more picky, so I don't feel like I'm wasting money on supplies that I don't use.  Even if I don't always have the latest and greatest papers, I ALWAYS have a supply of solid colored cardstock. By using the spiderweb stamp from the Spider and Web set as a background stamp - you can create your own Halloween paper in any color that you choose.  I know some of you are masters at using your stamps to create beautiful background papers...I tend to have a bit of trouble, but this spiderweb stamp is super super easy.  I PROMISE!  I used the In Stiches Face Assortment set for my little monsters.  This is another versatile set - I love using it for scarecrows, dolls and any of the Peachy Keen Stamps that have stitching.  
I decided to heat emboss my sentiment so it would stand out against the pattern and the textured cardstock.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Very cute... I wish someone would have told me to be picky about paper when I started not only would I have saved money... More importantly I would have saved some much needed room :)
