My Creative Time's July Stamp release BLOG HOP!

Hello and happy hopping!!! If you've arrived from Emma's blog, you're in the right place! If not, head back to Emma's blog and begin at the beginning. ;) For my card today I used the ADORABLE new set called All Around Halloween and the Scallop and Circle die set. {I only used the scalloped die, not the circle}. I used the scallop die to create a mask using post it craft paper. I then inked it all up with spiced marmalade distress ink and misted with copper perfect pearls and water in a mini mister.  I zapped it with my heat gun to dry it so I could peel up the masks to reveal the white. I then stamped the thin circle using a stamp from the Flower Centers stamp set from PeachyKeenStamps.com.  Then I stamped the adorable round greeting from the All Around Halloween set inside it...and finally stamped the little ghost inside that.
Here you can see a little better that I used a little bit of perfect pearls and water to "paint" in my ghost with shimmer. Looks really cool in person! OH, and that super cute sentiment is also from the All Around Halloween set. Ok, that's it for me......but first....


***GIVEWAY ALERT***
For my giveway today, I am giving away the die that coordinates w/this stamp set! All you have to do is leave a comment here AND a way for me to contact you! You have "11" chances to win! All you have to do is leave a comment on ALL blogs in this hop! EASY PEASY!!! GOOD LUCK!:)
 
 
Now keep on hopping! Next stop.... KATIE
