Halloween Inspiration

Good afternoon everyone!

InStyle Stamps has done away with Over the Hump Day Blog Candy Giveaway! Just the name though! It is now called InStyle InSpiration Challenge. So our inspiration today is Halloween and I've got a set of invites made up to get the ideas started for that holiday party you've got coming up.

I used the Country Bumpkin image from InStyle Stamps and resized him to fit in an A2 size envelope. I colored with Prismacolor Markers and then added some Martha Stewart Glitter to the shadows of the pumpkin. When I printed them out I had two on a sheet and that allowed me to use a ruler and embossing tool to create my score line. I cut them out while folded so that I could get the same shape in the back side of the invitation. A small amount of green organza ribbon it this pumpkin is ready to go out in the mail!

The design team has some amazing inspiration at the store blog today, so hop on over and get your inspired designs.

All the images we have been using for the InSpiration Challenge are also a part of InStyle Stamp's release week. More images will be shown on Thursday and Friday at the store blog and then Friday evening we are kicking it up with an InStyle Stamps Release Party in our group on Paper Craft Planet. Come and join us, we are going to have a blast!
