Paper Therapy-October 11 2010

Hello all!! Welcome to our second challenge at  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! This week's challenge was to use the very first stamp that we ever bought, or the oldest stamp in our collection. Between fairly new to scrapbooking (or at least building my collection) my stamp is from a Halloween collection  by Inkadinkado from 2008.

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

  This week the designers were challenged to make a project with the first stamp we ever bought or the oldest stamp in our collection. I haven't been stamping too long and I wanted to make a Halloween card so I pulled out my All Hallow's Eve set from Inkadinkado and my new papers and embellies from Pink Paislee's Hocus Pocus line to come up with this witchy little card.

I stamped the image on some patterned paper, die cut it and then inked the edges.

I distresed the edges of the patterned paper and then wrinked it up and sanded the creases. 
The Artisan Element from Pink Paislee was inked with ink.

LOVE the new ribbon from Making Memories! I secured the
patterned paper to the card with staples.

It was SUPER fun working on a Halloween card for this week's challenge! I hope that you play along with us this week at  Paper Therapy
