The embossed mustard layer is popped up.

SCS Featured Stamper 188: Die Cut Diva

Congrats Terri! I love your CAS cards and I was thrilled to see you in the DT search. I've linked a few of your cards on my blog that you can see here.

The elegant card I CASEd can be found here.

I kept the same layout. I was originally going to go with different flowers and the same elegant look, but ast this time of year, I'm trying to use my fall and Halloween stamps so they just get used. LOL! I used the same layout, moved the sentiment, changed the colors and edge punch and added a green layer so it wasn't just the standard orange and black Halloween card. I love this whispy Halloween tree from Unity.

Stamps: Hauntingly Sweet (Unity)
Paper: SU pear pizzazz, GKD sweet mango
(SU peach parfait & GKD sweet mango are an exact match in my eyes.)
Ink: Adirondack pitch black
Accessories & Tools: Martha Stewart Drippy Goo border punch, ribbon (unknown)

CAS Sketch Challenge Inspired by kstamper

One Layer Card
Adirondack black ink

The "dangling" candy corn are popped up.

I was lucky to get this cool 'BOO' stamp at the Novi stamp show in August. Ya know I couldn't pass it up. LOL!

SCS Inspiration Challenge 248
I was inspired by the Boo Newsprint Plaque from Elizabeth's Embellishments. I was looking to see if I still had some newsprint dp when I ran across the pre-stamped sanded BG. It turned out to be my substitute. I may make one with real newsprint, though.

Stamps: Boo (Stamp Oasis), Sanded BG (Stampin' Up)
CS: white, black, only orange, going gray
Ink: black, gray
Accessories: Cuttlebug EF, ribbon, eyelet, Martha Stewart web & cat punches
