Happy Thursday!
Wow things have been really crazy around here.  I am getting ready to go on a scrapbooking retreat with some awesome amazing friends, but if I don't find time to pack I may just have to go and watch them scrapbook ha ha.  NO WAY!  I will find time to pack if it takes me all night.

The weather this past weekend was AMAZING.  A little bit of cool in the air makes me think of Autumn.  I have a personal rule about NOT getting out my Halloween stuff until the first of October but I am sure tempted to pull it out when the weather gets cool.

Check out my post on the Design Junkies Blog today.  I am sharing the card below.
I had a lot of fun the other day playing with this card.  I used an embossing folder to create the background.  I inked up the inside of the folder with some purple and a tad bit of orange Distress Stain from Tim Holtz.  I did this one some watercolor paper.  The technique can be found on the Emboss or Die CD.  Once the paper was dry I brushed my black inked across the top of the raised portion to add even more dimension.  I also rubbed some of the metallic stain on some areas.  And.... because I can't leave well enough alone sometimes, I also added some white to a couple of the raised areas using a white pen.  I wanted to make sure they popped against the purple background.

The featured stamp on this project is called Fright Night. I love this stamp and actually used it on my card last week as well.  I love it so much though that I thought it could be used alone.  I stamped it on a piece of white card stock and then cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  Once cut out, I rubbed some of the Tim Holtz Pumice Stone and some of the Tim Holtz Black Soot along the edges.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. Check out all of the awesome new stamps at the TJ Website.
Oh and Wish me luck on getting all my stuff packed.  Yeeesh..... I got a lot of stuff..

Have an awesome day!
