Throw Back Thursday and a Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!! 

Is everyone ready for some Trick or Treating? I know my daughter is. She will be dressing up as a medical officer from the original Star Trek. Her father has her hooked!!

To commemorate Halloween AND it being Thursday, I thought I would create a card using a Halloween Stamp from my archives. This stamp was from Stampin Up! set "Costume Bears." It was retired years ago but I thought it was so cute that I kept it. I have so many sets of stamps that I barely use that I am going to try to dig them out and do a series of "throw back" Thursdays using my older stamp sets.

I first stamped the bear and then cut it out using the end of one of the PTI Half and Half Die. I then colored in the bear using various Copic Markers. I then layered patterned paper and card stock in yellow, black, and purple on the front of a card. Next I adhered the stamped image using foam adhesive. I die cut three stars and adhered two with foam tape and one with general adhesive in a random way across the card. The last step was to cover the stars on the stamped bear's costume and the three die cut stars in diamond Stickles. I LOVE the way this turned out. Isn't it so cute?

I hope you all have a fabulous Halloween!! Don't eat too much candy! (I know I will. I made the mistake of buying the kind I like!)
