Trick or Treat Edwin


My Magnolia stamps were feeling a little neglected while I was working on my Whipper Snapper Halloween cards, so I thought I'd better make them happy and create a card with them. I used Halloween Edwin which I did see on Diana Crick's Magnolia site.

I stamped Edwin on Wausau Bright White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copics and then cut out.

Copics used were E000, E00, R11, E13, E17, E19, C2, C3, C5, C7, C9, W4, V12, V15, YR18, YR23, YG63, YG67.

The background scene is from Stampin' Up, the House of Haunts set. I embossed the house and tree on Stampin' Up's Whisper White cardstock with clear embossing ink and black detail powder. Using sponge daubers, I applied the following inks in the order given to create the night sky - Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Pale Plum, Eggplant Envy, and Adirondack Mushroom.

The fence is from C.C. Designs Sugarplum Spooky Scenery Set. It was stamped on gray cardstock and highlighted with Copic marker W4, and cut out.

The "Trick or Treat" sentiment is from a Close to My Heart set, "Beware". It was stamped in black on a cream cardstock and then punched out with a Stampin' Up punch.

The card was then assembled, starting with the cardstock base of Worldwin Papers Caribbean Colors "Midnight Surf" on which "Lime Crush" Bazzil Basics was layered. The DP was from an older Basic Grey collection - Fusion. The background image was layered on Stampin' Up's Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the Midnight Surf. Edwin, the fence, and sentiment were popped up using foam dots. The bat I believe is from May Arts.

I do not normally mass produce my Magnolia cards, but was running out of time for my rain and mingle cards for the Yahoo Magnolia-licious group that I belong to. I made six of these cards, five to send out, and one to keep for myself.

Deb, this is absolute fabulous. Never mind the mass-produced part. If I was the recipient of this card, I wouldn't mind it at all. It probably deserved to be mass-produced, hee hee, it's that gorgeous. Totally love everything about it. Terrific job you've done on it.

Hugs.
