BOO !! It's time for another TIOT, but this week it is Try It Out Thursday due to the two new mini releases. If you haven't already checked out the new releases, you do not know what you are missing. Gotta go see them at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.

Suzanne challenged us this week to make a fall or Halloween card. I chose one of the new Lockhart Window Stamps from SCACD. Karen has started a new seasonal window collection - this image is the Halloween Window. Go to SCACD and check them out. They are really nice for the upcoming holidays.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations Wednesday - Letter or Numbers - Have spooky letters

ABC Challenge - Embossing - Have heat embossing

Charisma Cardz - Decoupage - Pumpkin and leaves

Dutch Dare Card Challenge - So Charming - Spiders

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Cute as a Bug - Do spiders count?

Creative Card Crew - All that sparkles - Stickles on the curtains and the black edging around letters and shimmerez and inspirations.

The Pink Elephant Challenge - Black, Orange, Purple, and White

The cool green background paper by SEI is heat embossed. The image is heat embossed and I colored it with Copics and popped it up. I cut out a few extra leaves. The pumpkin is also popped. All of the leaves are glossed with Crystal Effects. The Spider brads are metal with a really nice rhinestone. I believe I got them at Michael's. The buttons are accented with Purple Waxy Flax. I added some Sage Inspirations Paint on the BOO, used some Spica pens here and there, and of course, added some Stickles to the tattered curtains. The fiber is from my stash. I also used Autumn Flower Soft under the pumpkin and flower box ledge.

I wanted to try and show you the different dimensions on this card.

The is a picture of the top inside of the card. I added some more of the brads only because I like them, but the paper by itself would have been fine.

Be sure and check out the other DT samples here. They are sensational.

Thank you for stopping by. If you have time please let me know how I am doing.
