Spooky Halloween, RS138, CYCI42 & SOS174

Happy Monday, Stampers! I had an awesome weekend with my friend LeAnne, scroll all the way down to the bottom for a photo or two! We got all crafty, and one of the things I made was this 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" Halloween card using some retired products. Do you ever miss using your oldies but goodies?

I'm playing along with three challenges today, the sketch at Retro Sketches, the Halloween challenge at Can You Case It, and the Halloween challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

So, I shopped my stash and pulled out two retired stamp sets, Wicked Cool and Best of Halloween, and retired Wicked Cool  DSP. The witches hat was heat embossed with black embossing powder and cut out by hand. The pearls were colored with a Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities Marker and Black Sharpie marker.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Wicked Cool, Best of Halloween
Card Stock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Witches Brew
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Tools: Heat Tool, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch
Accessories: Pearls, Black Embossing Powder, Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities Marker
Other: Black Sharpie

And now for a couple promised pictures:
