Signs you are TOO OLD....

to Trick or Treat!

That is the theme of my card for our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week! Our challenge is to use the Out of The Box Technique which is really fun. We also have a special guest sponsor this week... KennyK so our Design Team all used his fun images for our inspirational creations :) I love KennyK and we do carry his rubber stamps in our store!

When I first saw this super cute Trixxie Treat digi stamp from KennyK I immediately thought...Whoa! She looks a tad grown up to be out Trick or Treating...LOL! So my card theme was born!

For my card background I used another one of the KennyK Digi Stamps called Haunted House. I just colored in some of the white areas and sponged some Daffodil Delight for my sky. It is hard to read on the picture but on the tombstone I hand wrote the name: Myra Mains in white Gel Pen.

My Trixxie Treat panel uses the Out of the Box Technique where her legs come out of the bottom of my oval die cut. I colored my Trixxie using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and I had printed her out on the Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth White Cardstock.

Here is a close up of Trixxie...

I wanted the background behind her to look kind of like a moon so I sponged Daffodil Delight and then Pumpkin Pie inks around the oval die. They are both from Stampin Up! I popped this panel up on dimensionals.

Here is a look at the inside of my card which features the "Signs"

Here is a closer look at the Joke

The "Joke" is computer generated. The Happy Halloween sentiment is from the stamp set that comes with the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Spider Web & Matching Stamp Set. I stamped this sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

My Designer Paper is from the Enchanted 6x6 Paper Pack by Authentique. This has some gorgeous designs that can be used for a lot more than just Halloween themed projects!

I hope you got a chuckle out of my card today :) Come play along in our Out Of The Box Challenge! We would love to see your project!

Don't forget to ENTER OUR BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY... we will be drawing a winner on Sunday!

Happy Stampin all!
